Make it Comfortable

If you plan to take your dog with you on vacation, there are a couple of essential points to consider. First and foremost is the dog’s comfort. You want the best accommodations for your whole family, and so do we! Most of our pet-friendly properties feature spacious lawns, which are perfect for your pup to run around. Emerald Isle also happens to have the best pet-friendly beaches in NC! Dogs are allowed on the beach year-round, though they must be on a leash and owners must clean up after them. As if that wasn’t enough, there is a wonderful selection of hiking trails in town that are ideal for you and your dog. For example, Emerald Isle Woods Park is a fantastic dog-friendly public area!

Location, Location, Location

All of the stunning homes from Spinnaker’s Reach are located in one area of town. Each property is just a short walk (or golf cart ride) away from the beach along Coast Guard Road. This area is less crowded than the more popular beach spots, like the iconic Emerald Isle spot, The Point. You and your dog will be able to enjoy a more peaceful beach experience, which is especially important if your pet is unfamiliar or less comfortable with the ocean.

Enjoy our Pet-Friendly Restaurants

After a day of playing in the surf, you and your pup are sure to be hungry! There are a couple of awesome restaurants in Emerald Isle that allow dogs to join their owners on the patio. The Village Market serves up classic sandwiches, salads, and wraps. They also have a great breakfast menu, with delicious omelets, waffles, biscuits, and more! For some delicious pizza or subs, visit Michelangelo's. Aside from the standard Italian fare, you can also get some yummy appetizers like fried pickles or buffalo wings.
