Ron and June Forlano, owners of The Saltaire House, have been residents of the Outer Banks since 1985, and have enjoyed success in the area as small business owners for over 20 years.

We first conceived The Saltaire House in 2004 in recognition of the Outer Banks as one of the most popular family vacation and destination wedding locations in the United States. Outer Banks beaches are consistently rated among the country's finest and the area offers a plethora of sights, history and sports to guests, in addition to offering moderate weather, picturesque surroundings... and, of course, the Atlantic Ocean.

We are proud to say that The Saltaire has quickly become a premier event venue and luxury vacation rental on the Outer Banks, hosting families and elegant events of all types and sizes. We are delighted to host garden and beach wedding ceremonies, receptions and rehearsals on the Outer Banks, as well as corporate retreats, small events and mini vacations all in Duck, North Carolina.

This venue has new owners which require you rent the facility for a week if you have your wedding there. Thankfully my wedding occurred before this policy change and we only had to rent for 4 nights.

The reason I had problems with this venue:
1) There isn't a commercial dishwasher. We had 130 people at the wedding and the food was delayed because the caterers had to wash everything by hand.
2) The icemaker didn't work.
3) A guest got stuck in the bathroom on the main level for 30 minutes and the police had to be called because the lock was not functioning properly. Eventually one of the caterers kicked the door down because the guest was hysterical. We did not receive any sort of apology from the Saltaire for this.
4) The fee for the venue includes clean up after the event but we were charged an additional $100 for not sweeping the floors even though Ron told us we did not have to.

All I want from the Saltaire is an apology for the incident with our guest and the $100 fee returned to my parents. For all of the hell we went through with this venue, it was pretty disgusting to take $100 from our security deposit.

Ron is absolutely amazing! He is always available when we need him! The Saltaire is such a wonderful place to have a wedding or in our case, have the rehearsal and reception and just be able to have the house from thursday through monday. Unfortunately, Ron has sold the house to new owners who have a new idea for the house in the future and have raised the price tremendously leading me to believe they don't want weddings there anymore. Its very sad to see this as this place is PERFECT for weddings! Regardless, Ron has made such a wonderful place for your wedding so hurry up before the privilege is taken away!

The Saltaire House is beautiful. We had our ceremony on the beach and our reception by the pool. Ron welcomed us into his home and made us feel so comfortable. We had everything we needed and he even helped with some of the wedding planning. All of our guests had a great time and they absolutely loved the house. I'm so glad we found the Saltaire house. Ron helped make our wedding absolutely perfect!!

Thank you Ron for making my wedding day amazing despite Hurrican Irene! You were so nice to move up the reception date and let us check in early. I can't believe how beautiful everything looked and that you were there personally to oversee everything. We plan to come back and celebrate future family events with you all. You are the best!

Ron Forlano at the Saltaire is amazing! He made our wedding day and weekend perfect! He was so helpful in planning our wedding and was always available to answer any questions while planning our wedding. We planned to have our wedding outside under a tent at the Saltaire but the day before we had to change our plans and move everything inside due to a tropical storm. Ron was so helpful in making sure everything was taken care of and helped everyone feel better about the situation. The Saltaire is an absolutely beautiful location but Ron is what makes worth having a wedding there!

I was stuck in a bind when I found out the rental home I had rented I was not permitted to have a reception at. I was able to have my reception at The Saltaire and I couldn't have been happier. The home is absolutely breathtaking and there is plenty of space for everyone to spread out. The owner was very easy to work with and was very nice. My only warning to those staying at The Saltaire on their wedding night was that the owner was back in the home the next morning quite early and scared the dickens out of us!

Ron is great! He saved my wedding day from being a total nightmare. The house is absolutely georgeous and well maintained. Ron and his event home made my wedding day amazing! I would and have highly recommended this place to many people... in fact, I recommended it to a girl and she saw it and fell inlove with it too and is having her wedding there next year. It's a great venue... I'd say the best in the outerbanks!
