2947 acre Willow Point Duck Hunting Lodge and Impoundment for Sale in Hyde County, NC! For over a generation “Willow Point” has been the crown jewel of the Hyde County waterfowling mystique. Originally constructed in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s this spectacular combination of seclusion and sporting excellence has captured the hearts and minds of many a hunter and fisherman. Willow Point embodies the word “unique” in regards to its location and make up, you could never duplicate it! Everything from the road stretching some 7500′ across the marsh to the 218 acre saltwater impoundment, nothing like it can ever be built again!
Built in the early 1960’s, renovated in the 70’s and again in the 80’s the Willow Point Lodge, has a commanding view of the Pamlico Sound to the South and the huge salt water impoundment, as well as, the surrounding marshlands to the North. There simply is not a more beautiful and serene spot on the planet! The Lodge setting is completely bulkheaded and has a private boat ramp and boat basin complete with a dock that provides immediate access to the sound and the neighboring marsh islands. The lodge comes complete with underground power, and a 500 gallon propane tank, along with a well and septic. The Lodge is outfitted with a full kitchen and dining area, a large wood burning stove mounted in the chimney, a large bunk room, and three smaller more private bedrooms.
From the decks, you can enjoy year round sunrises and sun sets, the steady flow of boats seen sailing south out of the mouth of the Pamlico headed down the ICW, and the countless number of waterfowl lighting in the impoundment and surrounding pot holes in the marsh. The beauty here is, Willow Point can be enjoyed year round, the fishing is second to none! You can enjoy world class fishing for Red Drum, Tarpon, Speckled Trout, and a variety of other species from Blues to Spanish Mackerel. The Pamlico Sound is the largest inland body of water on the East Coast and the boating and fishing opportunities are endless.
The large saltwater inpoundment was first constructed in the 1960’s and over the years has had significant improvements. The dikes are all core ditched, and are large enough to drive a full size vehicle on. There are a number of blinds spread strategically around the vast open water of the impoundment where at any time of the day there could be 100’s of ducks resting and feeding on the natural vegetation. There are two water control stations, on the Southwest corner and another on the Northwest corner. On the Northwest corner of the impoundment is a large pump station, equipped with a 200 horse power 671 Detroit Diesel motor capable of pumping 5,000 GPM at half throttle. A 500 gallon double walled fuel tank provides 100’s of hours of operation. The pump is equipped with a twin disc clutch so flow can be reversed as required. A new 24″ pipe was laid under the road to offer the necessary flow required to manage the water both in and out of the impoundment. This operation is turnkey!
Showings are happily provided for qualified buyers, please note, because of the exclusivity of this offering buyers may be asked to show proof of funds. Showings are made by appointment only and will require time on the water to visit all of the marsh islands included in the purchase.
