Overview

About the property

3BR/2Baths, Private Decks Off Every Bedroom, Tranquil Setting With Amazing Views

If you have never had the opportunity to stay sound side at the beach, then you don't know what a great time you are missing out on. After a hard day of fun & sun at the beach, wind down on the back deck and experience the amazing sunsets and stunning views of the Bogue sound.

While summer is in high demand, many miss the most amazing times of the year to come to the Salty Dog! Sept., Oct., and Nov., are filled with warm days, warm water, refreshing evenings, low humidity, lower traffic and great fishing!

Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years are special times to spend at the coast and celebrate with family and friends. Jan and Feb are not to be forgotten months with much needed relaxing and de-stressing after the hectic holiday season and also romantic getaways for Valentine’s Day!

Our beautifully decorated home has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. It will comfortably sleep 6; with 2 queen beds and a kid friendly room which has a bunk bed that has a double bed on bottom, single on top and a trundle bed underneath. All the bedrooms have private decks with scenic views. There is a wonderful picnic area with picnic table located sound front on the sandy beach area and great place to play corn hole.

Staying sound front offers many activities that you wouldn’t be able to experience on the beach front such as; clamming, crabbing, flounder gigging, seining, bird watching, walking in the shallow waters for great distances, etc.

Our family has had many fond memories of clamming and crabbing and having a delicious clam bake with all we caught! The kids have always enjoyed catching crabs and hermit crabs.

By the sound, there is a sandy beach area, a covered gazebo in the water and stairs leading into the sound. There is also a hot/cold outdoor shower area with a separate dressing area. For those of you that would like to try some clamming or crabbing there are rakes and crab pots available for use. We will also have beach chairs, coolers, boogie boards and corn hole boards.

About Dana Franklin

The Salty Dog is named after the original “Salty Dog” my dad. He built this home in the late 70’s after years of scraping and saving! His dream was to retire early and live out the rest of his life at Emerald Isle and that he did. My dad was somewhat of a stubborn man, he weathered many hurricanes by himself and his fearless dogs! He would never evacuate even when it was mandatory! He would always tell me, “A captain must go down with his ship”. He loved this house! It would drive me crazy and worry me to death! But this house would always come out just fine and so would my dad! I grew up coming to Emerald Isle and raised my four children coming here as well. As a family, we have made so many wonderful memories in this house and now they still want to come here on vacation rather than somewhere else. My children have always brought friends with them on vacation and to this day they still talk about all the good times they had at Emerald Isle with us! When my sweet dad left this earth he passed this home to me and I decided it was time for a much needed makeover. So I gave it an overhaul and made the decision to share it with others so they could make memories of their own here. We truly feel this is a special place filled with love, happiness and fun and want others to share in this too. I know my dad is looking down with his scruffy beard and smiling! So Cheers to you Dad!!!

Dana Franklin purchased this house in 2005

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location!!! Privacy and definately have the best of both worlds. Tranquility of the sound and the closeness of the beach!

Fantastic Fall Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Dana provides everything needed for a relaxing vacation; her kitchen lacks for nothing. Carpet free; floors were sparkling. Her home (inside & out) is immaculate. Such a pleasure to have access to her beach cart & sand chairs for use at the ocean, which is a short walk across the road. The Soundfront location, without a doubt, is beautiful. Sea Life is abundant in the Sound. 17 small fish were caught in under an hour! Take the time to stop & enjoy the sound of the palms blowing in the breeze; we don't hear that in NJ! Plenty of places to explore if you are looking for a diversion from sun & sand. Short drive to Moorehead City as well as Swansboro; a quaint little area with interesting shops. Dana's Salty Dog--a home well- maintained with pride & care.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This is such a wonderful beach house. The bedrooms are great and the main room is open floor plan with a kitchen and room for family dinners looking out over the water. The sunsets are stunning and the walk to the beach is easy. You get the best of both worlds with this ideally located house! We just loved our time there!!

3rd year in a row!

  • 5 of 5

We had another great week at The Salty Dog. Thanks to Dana for always working to keep her home in wonderful condition. My kids say this is the best of both worlds because they can float, fish and crab in the sound and then walk 4 houses over to the beach. We just pack our clothes and buy groceries on the island. Everything else is in the house from cooking to beach. We'll be back again next year!

Amazing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time at the salty dog. The location is amazing, with a breathtaking view of the sound, private beach, and short walk to the ocean. Dana was extremely pleasant to work with and did everything she could to make our vacation perfect. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone looking for vacation oasis.
