Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our unique, cozy cottage is the perfect place on Hatteras Island. Located in the small town of Salvo, on a one-street subdivision (great for kids and biking), we are six lots from a wide, beautiful beach. Gather shells, enjoy the sun, swim and fish. The beach is never crowded and the ocean is every changing and always wonderful to watch. A short distance away is the sound where you can enjoy, crabbing, swimming, fishing, kayaking, windsurfing..the list is endless.

We have a completely furnished kitchen where you can prepare any meal and eating in the dining room or on the screened porch is comfortable. An upstairs deck is great for the sun and looking at stars at night; the porch is wonderful for morning coffee and afternoon drinks. There are three TVs, DVD and VCR players, as well as an assortment of games. A view of the lake is available from an upstairs bedroom.

There are many activities within a reasonable drive. An amusement area and movies are a few miles away. If you want to venture a little further taking the ferry to Ocracoke Island is enjoyable and in the other direction, the quaint town of Manteo with the Elizabethan Gardens and Aquarium is interesting.

You will leave our cottage totally relaxed and planning your next stay.

About Katherine Lippard

We built our cottage in 1990 after vacationing in Salvo for many years. Our children already considered Salvo as the only real beach. We are now empty-nesters but our family still loves to vacation in our cottage in Salvo, and we believe you will come to return year after year

Katherine Lippard purchased this cottage in 1990

Why Katherine Lippard chose Salvo

We built our cottage in Salvo because it was our favorite vacation site. We loved to swim, walk the beach and fish. Crabbing was also a favorite activity on the sound.

What makes this cottage unique

Although many amenities are close by, you do not hear constant sirens and the noise associated with many tourist areas. The wildlife and sheer beauty of time spent on the island leads to a unique vacation

Myself, daughter and mom took a trip and stayed at the house for a week. It was fantastic and a perfect location for a quick stroll to the beach which was not crowded just families out there with plenty of children for my daughter to make friends with .I loved that it was close to some other great hang outs for the day times , there's a great day beach on the bay side just mins drive away with showers etc and very calm water for younger children to play in. I spent quite a few hours relaxing on the lovely screened in porch reading and just listening to the world outside. The house was very well equipped with everything you could need, very clean and exceptionally well maintained. The owners are great to work with and had answers to any questions I had . I will definitely rent this property again.

Great House

Our trip was awesome. The house is very clean and well equipped. It is a short walk to an uncrowded beach and is on a quiet street. The owners are very nice and easy to communicate with. I would definately rent again!

We stayed in this cottage recently with family. It was very comfortable and well equipped. I especially enjoyed the screened porch and spent a lot of relaxing hours reading and listening to birds sing. The house was large enough for 4 adults, a teenager and two small children and we did not feel crowded. Having a washer, dryer and dishwasher made clean up easy. I was not disappointed and plan to return in the future! The short walk to the beach reveals a beautiful wide beach which with never more than a few families on it. I recommend this cottage if you have kids.
