Otter Cove History:
Throughout each room of the home, the owners chose to incorporate unique, meticulously selected sentimental touches to preserve and share the memory of their loved one who deeply treasured all that embodies this sacred ground.
The real staple of the home was the cherished water wheel house. Each churn of the water 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 but the young grandson of its founder has plans to rebuild in the near future.
