Property description

Supreme location on the ocean. Sunrises, sunsets, sandcastles --this area of Atlantic Beach is second to none for relaxing on the Crystal Coast. Stroll down to Fort Macon State Park. Watch sea gulls trail boats seeking Spanish mackerel just off the shore OR walk over to the marinas and catch a ride!

This classic beach cottage has been cherished by close friends and relatives of the same family for four decades. Lots of unforgotten memories have been made here. Enjoy ping-pong in the game room, count the boats on the water from the kitchen table or just take it slow on the expansive deck. This is a dynamite place for nice folks to get away from it all.

No smoking, please!

Car: Not Necessary

Atlantic Beach is the closest Bogue Banks settlement to Shackleford and the Cape Lookout National Seashore. The two islands are separted only by Beaufort Inlet. The eastern most end of the island features Fort Macon State Park, a well-preserved example of a bunker-style, Confederate post- taken by Union troops in 1862. Beaufort Inlet--known also for having swallowed Black Beard's flagship, the Queen Anne's Revenge, in the early 16th century-- serves recreation and commercial fishermen, alike, as well as cargo tankers accessing the NC state port of Morehead City. The region is widely recognized as the southernmost section of North Carolina's pristine Outer Banks.

Other Activities: ping-pong and swings for children; mature dunes for hide-n-seek games
