From the Zillow listing:


Rustic riverfront ”Fish Camp” escape 5 minutes from Abingdon’s Main Street! In the same family for 50 years, it’s as charming and laid-back as they come…”Arrogantly Shabby” as they say on Pawleys Island! A 13’x21′ ”cookhouse” building exits onto a big covered ”dog trot” porch to the 25’x25′ ”sleep house”….4 rooms with an added full bath. From the spoons in the drawer to the sheets on the shelves, everything stays! Plus an outside shower/ changing room and storage closets. Beautiful level yard with long river frontage and ancient Sycamore trees. There is also a storage shed, an old ”spillover” bunkhouse building, and a fresh air ”privy”! Other possibilities might be as an event venue or as base camp for a fishing, kayaking, etc. outfitter? And for the ”sporting types”, directly behind all this is a 16+/- acre hardwoods tract on the slopes of ”Little Mountain” that’s possibly available…full of big and small game! Better hurry on this one! *This property will not qualify for financing as a residence and is selling only ”as-is” with no repairs or modifications made by the Seller. Owner states that these buildings were moved up to this site when the new bridge was built in the late 60’s and rising waters have never touched them during their time of ownership.
