Roses Vacation Rentals offers a two-bedroom (2 bath) mobile home across the street (296 Bayview Dr.) from the vacation rentals site that can be used as a back-up when you need more room for your stay. This trailer is owned by Sandy Ervin and his mother Irene.

  • The larger bedroom has a double bed and a single bed. The smaller bedroom near the front entry has a double bed. A sleeper sofa (double size) will be in the living room to provide additional sleeping space. If each bed is used to its maximum capacity, the unit will be able to sleep 7 persons.
  • Vinyl flooring in both bathrooms and the kitchen/dining area is brand new.
  • Heat pump for heating and AC. Basic cable TV. Gas cookstove. Washer & dryer.
    all linens (bath and bed) provided as well as kitchen cookware, dishes, etc. and paper products.
  • Ramp and boat slip available across street at Mr. Ervin's property (best to use ramp at mid or high tide - rather than low tide). Vehicle and boat trailer can be pulled back across street to trailer lot
  • There is a large yard (very shady in front) and roomy in backyard (with a clothesline for drying large beach towels - or foul weather gear - when you're here fall fishing.

    *This mobile home and property is also available for youth groups (church, boy/girl scouts, etc., etc) who wish to bring tents. The mobile home would have to be rented (used by the leader/chaperones of the group). Each tent would be charged $l0 since the occupants would be using one of the bathrooms in the mobile home (nearest the front entrance). There is no separate/outside toilet facility. There is room in the back yard (no shade) of this property for at least 8 to l0 tents - and maybe 3 or 4 tents in the front yard (shaded area).

    *Owners of this home request that guests NOT bring small chest-type freezers and plug them into outside receptacle - as it greatly increases the electrical costs. Thank you.
