Otter Cove History:
Meticulously selected by the owners, each room has specific, sentimental pieces that have been incorporated to preserve the memory of their loved one who sought refuge at his peaceful haven. The family is honored to open up this sacred ground that allows others to create lasting memories while finding their own sense of serenity.
The real staple of the home was once the water wheel house. Every churn of the wheel displayed a true labor of love, as it was creatively built from scratch in 2014 by a very beloved father and papaw. Sadly, Hurricane Micheal swept it away in October 2018, however the young grandson of its founder has plans to rebuild in the near future.
