NEW KITCHEN COMING SPRING 2020
Looking for a place to really enjoy nature, boating, fishing, swimming, family games, campfires and more? Bring your boat! Bring your whole family! Cherry Point Vacation Rental is recently under new ownership and the owners aim to make this vacation the best ever!
The picturesque 7.4 acre property can be all yours for the week and includes a deep-water slip, sandy beach (when the tides out) and a floating dock, along the 1,200 feet of waterfront. Eagle, osprey, heron, hawks and waterfowl are as common as the sunrises. The grounds at Cherry Point include an older tennis court: perfect for tennis, basketball, hockey, roller skating and more; a 32’x16’ in-ground swimming pool (surrounded by decking, tables, lounge chairs and some pool toys); and lots of open space on the property with a large field for softball, soccer, badminton, horseshoes, and more including some wooded areas and private little sandy beaches for exploring and relaxing.
Cherry Point is perfect for multi-generational family getaways or multi-family vacations. There is a large main house (the original portion of the main house dates to 1919, featuring unique wood trim, beautiful old wood floors and some unique historic features...) and a newer updated addition which was added in the 1990's. And, if you need more room, there is additional living space we refer to as the "Annex" or “cottage” space with 3 bedrooms, a full bath, and large living area on the 2nd floor of the detached garage, overlooking the pool and water views.
The main house contains 7 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, living room with fireplace, den with fireplace, kitchen and dining area for group dining and family CRAB FEASTS, laundry, and screened porch with outdoor furniture and an additional picnic table, overlooking the water. The large Master Suite includes a 2nd floor deck overlooking the water. The new (2020), fully equipped kitchen, includes an induction electric cooktop and range, dishwasher, microwave, 2 refrigerators, drip pot coffee maker, Keurig coffee make, blender and tons of kitchen accessories.
The "Cottage" is above the garage, overlooking the pool and has 3 bedrooms: one with 2 bunk-beds (sleeps 4 ), one with a queen bed, and one with 2 twin beds...along with a large family room and a full bath.
All rooms at Cherry Point are air-conditioned via central air, or window units.
