A self-governing incorporated Village, Saltaire is a family focused community with a relaxed, yet exclusive, feel. Here you find stately homes, classic cottages, and modern houses designed with sweeping decks. Lots are oversized, and gardens are filled with summer blooms. In this private haven, the town’s commercial district has been limited to a quaint food market and liquor store. A white clapboard Village Hall incorporates the town library and post office. Next door, pancake breakfasts are served on Holiday weekends by members of the volunteer fire department. Recreation abounds in this village, with a summer camp for children, lifeguards manning both bay and ocean beaches, a playground, basketball court, and a large field for soccer and softball games. At the Saltaire Yacht Club, membership is open to village home owners and renters. Sailboats are available at no charge – when they are not being used for sailing lessons and regatta competitions. The Yacht Club is the village’s social hub, with 5 har-tru tennis courts, dining, and sweeping sunset views of the bay.
