Add a package to your next stay!
Did you know we offer several vacation package options to enhance your stay at Prince Resort?
Fishing is one of the most popular activities at the resort, so it's no surprise the Gone Fishing package is our most requested package. This package includes fishing rod rental and pier fees each day of your stay, plus daily breakfast and dinner one evening. If you prefer to fish with your own rod, we can modify the package to include a daily fishing pass instead of the rod rental.
We also offer a variety of romance packages, perfect for a couple's getaway, anniversary trip, or honeymoon. Our Treat Your Sweet package includes champagne and chocolates in your room upon arrival and daily breakfast. The Romantic Rendezvous package sets the mood with a bottle of wine and a fresh fruit basket in room upon arrival, dinner one evening and breakfast each day.

News from the Cherry Grove Pier
The Prince Resort is known for being located just steps from the Cherry Grove Pier, which is a popular reason many of our guests stay with us. Continue reading to learn about the latest updates and news from the Cherry Grove Pier.
The annual King Mackerel Tournament was hosted at the Cherry Grove Pier in September. The two-day event featured 35 people vying for bragging rights on the largest catch of the fall. Rick Hobbs of Statesville, North Carolina, was declared the winner with a catch weighing in at 31 pounds, 12 ounces. Hobbs won nearly $1,000 for his impressive catch!
Along with mackerel, popular catches in the fall months include flounder, red drum, black drum, Spanish mackerel, and spots. Spots are the species most often seen and caught in the fall months, often found along the Cherry Grove Pier as the water temperatures start to lower. Spots rarely reach a pound and average around 5 inches in length. Spots are a lean meat fish, with a mild to moderate flavor and can be substituted for trout and croaker in many dishes.

Guest Comments "You are all awesome! We've never had a bad experience at the Resort. We've traveled there on family trips and anniversary trips. In a year's time, we've been there 4 times! Everything is right there and you don't even have to leave the resort."

"The accommodations were spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed it so much that we extended our stay, and the staff took care of moving all of our belongings to the new unit. You can't find a better value for the money in the North Myrtle Beach area."
