About Cathy Forgnone
Mike and Cathy live in Western New York and have two grown children, a son-in-law and 3 grandchildren. We have been vacationing in the Outer Banks for about 30 years. We spend as much time as possible at the beach enjoying the surf, sand and wild horses that roam the area.
Cathy Forgnone purchased this cottage in 2005
Why Cathy Forgnone chose Carova
One year while vacationing in Duck, we rented 4 wheelers and took them to Swan Beach to ride. We fell in love with the remoteness of the 4x4 area and purchased our lot in 2000 never dreaming that we would ever build a house there. The family nicknamed the lot 'Cathy's Sandpile'. Cathy's Sandpile became Dream's End in 2005. We are living proof that dreams do come true!
What makes this cottage unique
Our cottage is located in Carova's unique 4x4 area where the wild horses roam. Carova is an eleven mile stretch of beach that begins at the northern terminus of NC Route 12 and extends to the North Carolina/Virginia state line. The name Carova is actually a contraction of Carolina and Virginia. Carova is sub-divided into beaches, one of which is Swan Beach where Dream's End is located. Our cottage is ideally situated 3.5 miles up the beach with spectacular, unobstructed oceanfront views. Every bedroom is a Master Suite with its very own private bathroom and deck access. The views from this house are breathtaking! Every room has a view of the ocean. Take a short walk over the dune and you are at the beach or sit on the deck and watch the dolphins jumping out of the waves. You may even see a whale spouting a stream of water as he swims by. Thunderstorms are exceptional at the beach with lightning brightening up the dark night skies. On a clear night you can sit in the hot tub and stare up at endless stars. There isn't any light pollution to dull your view. Early mornings you can view the sunrise over the ocean and in the evening view the sunset over the sound. The evening skies are incredibly filled with colorful hues. The wild horses come by nearly every day to snack on the grasses growing around the house. Some times you see them racing across the dunes in hot pursuit of each other. This area isn't for the faint of heart though. There aren't any paved roads or sidewalks in the 4x4 area called Carova. It is a wild and free area. The highway is the beach. Sand roads lead to the cottages. Your vacation here will be an experience like no other. Rejuvenate, relax and renew at Dream's End. Staying in the 4x4 area should be on everyone's Bucket List!!
