We have been fortunate enough to stay at Edgar's Headache each summer for more than 25 years, need I say more. Edgar's is a wonderful place for a family vacation. This summer there were eleven in our group. The teenagers were downstairs but still apart of the family because of the inside staircase at "Edgars" the kids have the advantage of being able to fish when not at the beach. We just love our beach week in "Edgars."
If there was a negative, it would be the need for a few more glasses and cereal bowls. After all "Edgars" is a house for 12. Minor things were immediately corrected- hooks on shower door, screening in porch door repaired.
Staying more than 25 years at Edgar's Headache is more than just tradition - that's a legacy! We are glad we were able to make the repairs reported to our office quickly and would've been glad to suppliment your glassware and cereal bowl shortage - consider it done now! Thank you for the review, and we look forward to having you back next year!

“Edgar's Headache has everything we look for in a beach house!”

The house was comfortable. From the extremely well-equipped kitchen to the outdoor showers to the puzzles provided for entertainment on a rainy day, Edgar's Headache met all our expectations for a wonderful stay at the beach. We were pleased with its location and quick access to the beach, but we also loved being on the canal. I would definitely book this house for another stay!
We're glad you enjoyed your stay in Edgar's Headache! It really is a wonderful, very popular canal house with very easy access to the beach! We look forward to seeing you and your family again very soon!

My family has stayed at Edgar's Headache since before my 25 year old son was born. It is a wonderful home, perfectly situated on the marsh canal. We love the Marsh and bring our Jon boat to take advantage of this natural beauty!
The beach is a three minute walk. So, we have always felt we had the best of both worlds.
However, the fact that it does not have wireless capability is a huge negative.
Thank you for your review, and most of all, thank you for being our guest for all these years! We will pass along to the owner of Edgar's Headache your suggestion about the wireless internet. We'll see you again next year!

“A Wonderful Week”
Left on 07/25/2012 for a stay in July 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jul 25, 2012Stayed Jul 2012
We must have picked the best beach week for the summer, weather in the 90's but an occasional breeze. We have stayed at Edgar's Headache each summer for over 35 years now. It is a wonderful beach house. The owners make improvements each year. Edgar's is a well kept home. The dock on the creek was used for fishing many evening by young and old. A nice thing for us is the weekend house cleaning/bed making service that Litchfield Real Estate has. Litchfield Beach is the best!
Thank you for being such great guests all these years in Edgar's Headache! It is a much-loved canal house - very popular with a number of guests. The bed-making in most of our properties has been a resounding success with our guests! We look forward to seeing you again very soon!

We have enjoyed staying in Edgar's Headache for many years. This house is comfortable and well appointed. Each year we enjoy seeing the "updates" that the owners have done to keep this house a perfect place for a beach vacation. In the morning we use the creek side porch for coffee. In the evening we enjoy the aC of the house. The house has great outside showers for after a morning/afternoon in the sun. We feel fortunate that we have been able to rent this "just right" beach house.
