Bounded by Cape Creek, Bald Head Creek & conservation preserves, Saltmarsh Retreat over looks Cape Creek from
Middle Island's Dogwood Ridge. Surrounded by undeveloped land, the house rests in an acre of maritime forest of live oaks and palmettos, reaching down to Cape Creek waters. East Beach and miles of undeveloped shoreline are accessible privately, a 5-minute cart ride along pristine saltmarsh & Cape Creek Road. An island outpost, Saltmarsh Retreat is a place to get away from it all & experience the unique character of Bald Head's vast marshlands.

A note from the property owners.
Thank you and welcome past and future guests to 28 Dogwood Ridge Lane on Bald Head Island. Guests' posted and personal comments are appreciated and helpful.
A few additions to the accommodations have been made in the last year in response to guests' suggestions and other circumstances, including a gas cooking grill on the rear deck, new mattresses (www.tuftandneedle.com, CR best buy made in NC) in 3 of the 4 bedrooms, and a large screen television and ping pong table in the first floor family room. Spectrum's extension of services to Bald Head Island now thankfully provides cable TV & reliable Wi-Fi.
Recent acquisition of an adjacent lot gives the house access to the shore of Cape Creek and an additional half-acre of mature maritime forest, allowing passage across the island from Cape Creek to Bald Head Creek, via the near-by Middle Island creek dock.
We appreciate guests' interest in and respect for the unique Smith Island environment, and our island home. Middle Island looks and feels like the Bald Head of the 1980s with unpaved roads, large lots and acres of undeveloped forest. In this sense 28 Dogwood Ridge has special appeal to guests familiar with the island, now comfortable away from the bustle - in the midst of nature.
Guests who wish to share comments or suggestions directly are encouraged contact Brandy Parker, Maya Williamson, and the other staff at Bald Head Island Services are available to help with any questions that arise during your stay.
