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

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!

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!!

ANOTHER AMAZING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Dreams End, another great vacation while staying at Cathy and mike's house. All their personal touches they put into the house, it makes you feel right at home. The house is very well maintained and includes everything you need. The views from the house are amazing. A very short walk over the dunes to the ocean. The pool and hot tub are really nice. A great place to kick back and relax with family and friends. We won't stay anywhere else but Dreams End!!!! Thanks again Cathy and Mike.

THANK YOU

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful rental
for us for our son's wedding. It gave us privacy and a true vacation among all the wedding plans. You definitely need a four wheel drive. Cathy and Mike were very concerned and caring owners. I recommend getting all supplies before you come to the house. I loved the double refrigerator in the kitchen. The kitchen was very well stocked and everything was spotless. I wish we had had a few more days to enjoy the view and the horses!

Our family had a great time at Dreams End home… The weather wasn't the greatest but the cozy house, wonderful views and a great gas fireplace. The house was well organized and very clean. Thanks to the owners for having the house to rent.

AMAZING...BEAUTIFUL...ROMANTIC

  • 5 of 5
One of our best vacations ever!! There were only two of us (very romantic), but the house had plenty of room for larger groups. The views from the house were amazing! The house itself was wonderful and well taken care of. Mike and Cathy were very nice and helpful. Cathy even called part way through the week (it was cold and raining a few days) to check on us and make sure everything was going good and to see if we had any questions. Super people, beautiful house, and we will for sure be back to Dream's End!!

OUR FAVORITE OBX HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
Best house in OBX for sure! My family has rented this house over and over again and are always sad when our vacation is over. Everything about it says "relaxing getaway"....from the magical location on the 4x4 beach; the incredible ocean views; the refreshing pool and relaxing hot tub; the immaculately clean and comfortable house (and decorated so nice!); the amazingly caring owners; and my favorite part...the frequent visits from the wild horses!

My family spent many wonderful times in this home, enjoying early morning walks on the beach, swimming the beach during the day; poolside cocktails in the evening, followed by a nice dinner from the barbeque. If you want to "escape from it all" to a true beach paradise, your family will not be disappointed!
