Owners' Welcome: We are a Virginia couple with North Carolina roots. Ned and I met at Louisburg College and then he went to UT while I went to UNC. Even though we moved a lot, we always hoped to get back to North Carolina. We wanted to 'go home,' but really couldn't leave our jobs, so we chose a second home back in the 'Old North State.' Returning to the beach, which had been our playground growing up, has been a joy that we are happy to share with a few families who value a peaceful visit to a home away from home. Our children, grandchildren and friends often enjoy time with us. Dream Maker Cottage is our haven, and we invite you to enjoy this pristine property on soundside in Atlantic Beach and create your own family memories.
For us, being at the cottage gives us an opportunity to really enjoy the soundside of the island while still having access to the gorgeous, wide North Carolina beaches. We take long walks in the early morning and then ride our beach bikes all over the community during the early evening hours. For some additional adventure, we ride the open-air trolley owned by our community. It is a fabulous addition to our fun. Food is always on our mind, and we are never disappointed in the many, many outstanding restaurants located within fifteen minutes of the cottage. Our children love the NC Aquarium and spend hours visiting or taking part in the outdoor adventure programs available everyday. Once in a while we will walk to the movie theatre or the wonderful restaurant nearby. A favorite is walking the boardwalk at Beaufort and marveling at the enormous yachts docked there.
The more adventurous can rent a kayak and paddle over to see the wild horses on Shackleford Banks. There is a great deal to do in the area and none of it includes the routine or mundane. Because I am an artist, I am always finding beauty around every corner. However, perhaps our favorite exercise is swinging in our front porch swing, sipping a cool one. You just have to visit to understand why we keep coming back. You're always welcome at Dream Maker Cottage.
