About the Property

Waterfront, 3 Bedrooms. 2 Baths, Dock, Screened Porch, W/d, Wifi, Hammock

Located on beautiful Core Sound across from Drum Inlet in the quaint fishing village of Atlantic, Dolphin Cottage has 3 bedrooms: master - queen bed; 2nd - double bed; 3rd - two twin beds; 2 full baths, washer/dryer, wifi, extended cable, phone, dishwasher, screened in porch with rocking chairs and tables, outside sitting area, the Crab Shack - a screened in shack with a hammock, outside swing, dock with a ladder, boogie boards, croquet, grill, dvd's, books, magazines, board games, beach towels, linens, towels, iron, ironing board, & hairdryer.

With one acre of land on the water, Dolphin Cottage has plenty of privacy and room for outdoor games and activities. Across Core Sound from Dolphin Cottage is the undeveloped and beautiful North Core Banks which is part of the Outer Banks and the Cape Lookout National Seashore. Going to the Banks is an easy boat/ferry ride or kayak paddle.

It is quiet at Dolphin Cottage except for the sounds of the wind, the waves, the sea birds, and the occasional fishing boat. At night, the stars are bright and amazing. At sunrise, the sun bursting over the Banks and the ocean is a wonder to behold.


Wildlife abounds around Dolphin Cottage - dolphins, ducks of all descriptions, geese, osprey, eagles, pelicans, blue birds, cormorants, loons, sea gulls, and the list goes on. Fishing, crabbing, and clamming are also popular activities.

Take a break from living in the fast forward mode and spend some time sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch watching the water, or hang out in the hammock in the Crab Shack and read a book or take a nap listening to the birds and the waves, or chill out on the swing at the Point, or catch the rays on the dock or play in the water. You will have time to relax and enjoy yourself - what a concept!

Dolphin Cottage is the ultimate get-away where you can relax, rejuvenate, and start to shine again in the beauty that is all around.

Atlantic is a wild, beautiful, end-of-the-road experience. Dolphin cottage is on core sound facing the cape lookout national seashore which is part of the outer banks and completely undeveloped. Dolphins, osprey, eagles, foxes, pelicans, and flocks of shore birds abound. The stars at night are amazing!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Deborah Van Dyken is a family law attorney who practices and lives in Beaufort, N.C. She is an active member of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, the Beaufort Women's Club, Beaufort Olde Towne Rotary, and the Beaufort Garden Club. Deborah enjoys gardening, reading, and walking their two dogs, Rose and Bubba, with her husband, Bill Blair. Bill Blair is a retired school principal whose people have lived in Carteret County for many generations. Bill is a volunteer with the Beaufort Historic Association where he gives tours of the Old Burying Ground and tells lies to the tourists.

Why the Owner Chose Atlantic, NC, USA:
We bought Dolphin Cottage because it is in an amazingly beautiful location on the water where we can see dolphins, birds of every description, and incredible sunrises since Dolphin Cottage faces east with the sun rising across the Outer Banks. We love the quiet where the only sound is the wind and the water. We like the feeling at being on the edge of the wild.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch drinking coffee in the morning or something for medicinal purposes around 5:00 p.M. And looking at the water is something that we love to do. We also love to hang out on the swing under the massive live oak tree and watch the water and the birds. Playing in the water and floating on the boogie boards is a lot of fun in the summer. The beauty of the water and the wildlife always amazes us!
