About the Property
Sleeps 10 with majestic water views and minutes from the beaches & dining!
You're minutes from Emerald Isle and Atlantic Beach with the entire Bogue Sound out in front of you. Your refuge rests just 50 feet from the water. A steady southwesterly breeze blows through the windows and screened porch.
The water in front of the cottage provides a convenient and more private way to enjoy the water. There is a 400 foot tidal flat between land and waist-deep water. The Intra-Coastal Waterway (ICW) passes by farther out.
Want to catch some rays? There are numerous places to sun at the cottage – on the deck or in the yards. And you can get in a good game of horseshoes. Star-gazing is always a fun activity. Who can resist a good game of checkers?
Guests will find opportunities to harvest clams and scallops, to cast a net for shrimp and bait fish, and to wade the flats at night in search of flounder.
Small aluminum boats, canoes and kayaks may be launched from the property. For larger boats, two ramps are located within a mile of the cottage. Public ramps are also located in Morehead, Beaufort, Cape Carteret. There is no pier available at this time, but many skippers choose to anchor their boats just beyond the tidal flat and wade in as opposed to pulling the boat at the end of the day. Marina slips may be rented nearby. Rentals of power boats, kayaks, sail boats and PWCs are available nearby. Check the blue book upon arrival.
Bogue sound is home to a portion of the Intra-Coastal Waterway (ICW). Just across the ICW from the cottage are shell islands – the result of dredging that started back in the 1930’s. Shell collectors, bird watchers and sun bathers gather on the islands to enjoy the local environs. Many species of birds nest on the islands and are very protective of their nesting sites – especially the small terns and Oyster Catchers. “Watch your head!”

Year Purchased: 1983
About the owner: On an private road bordering Bogue Sound on the Southern Outer Banks of North Carolina, Margie and Fred Fletcher bought a cottage that has been loved by 4 generations of Fletchers. We’d love for you to enjoy it, as well.
Why the Owner Chose Newport, NC, USA (City):
Lots of folks love to come to the Carolina shore to relax, play and enjoy some down time. The Sound Relief Cottage is nestled waterfront in a neighborhood of permanent residences. Your vacation experience will be more like you own the place. Yet minutes away are the great Crystal Coast beaches, restaurants, shopping and amusements.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You'll be waterfront on the sound with a huge "safe" water play area: no rip tides, no crashing waves and no crowds! Yet you'll have the waterfront experience with prevailing southwest breezes, stunning sunrises and sunsets, and a daily parade of offshore fishing boats and cruisers on the ICW. Keep an eye out for bottle nose dolphin, aka porpoises. Many days you'll see these beautiful creatures navigating the ICW. If you're more interested in hiking, the Croatan National Forest is within a mile. Kayaks are for rent close-by.
