Cape Charles cottage description

Please contact manager for stays less than a week

Located in the historic district of Cape Charles, Randolph House is a beautifully decorated beach cottage. Built in 1898 this 100+ year old home comfortably accommodates up to 14 people with three private bedrooms, a large dining room, and laundry room, eat in kitchen, and two family rooms. The Star-Fish Bedroom features a four poster queen size bed, cable TV, VCR and DVD player. The Sand-Dollar Bedroom includes an antique double bed with pull out trundle bed, cable TV and DVD player. The Seashell bedroom sleeps 6 with one single bunk and pull out trundle bed and a single over full bunk bed. This room also includes cable TV and a video game system. The upstairs family room serves as a fourth bedroom with a pull out double bed, cable TV, and DVD/VCR player; an additional pull out single bed is located in the first floor family room.

Painted and professionally decorated with a blue and white theme this quaint beach cottage offers all the modern amenities needed to enjoy your stay. The game room is stocked with puzzles, games and a vintage poker table and there are two bicycles for use as well as beach chairs, beach umbrellas and an expansive library of books as well as DVD and VCR movies.

The house is located a short five blocks to a beautiful sandy beach where you can stretch out and enjoy the sun. Around the corner is Cape Charles’ historic main street with quaint shops, restaurants, upscale boutiques and a coffee shop.
Golf on Jack Nicholas and Arnold Palmer signature courses, take a fishing trip and experience some of the best fishing on the East Coast or take a self guided walking tour of homes dating from 1883 - 1920. Stroll along the beach and take in the most amazing sunset at the town pier or walk/bike throughout the entire town on safe quiet streets. Make sure to take a day trip up the peninsula to visit local wineries, as well as historic homes and plantations.

Cape Charles has an inexplicable charm and is a short drive to historic Williamsburg, Busch Gardens, Virginia Beach, downtown Norfolk, and is only a few hours to Ocean City MD, Annapolis MD and Washington DC.

Year Purchased: 2007

About: We are a beach loving family who love to spend time on the Eastern Shore of VA

Why Cape Charles:
We are located just 25 minutes from Virginia Beach (via the Bay Bridge Tunnel) yet most Virginian's have no idea where Cape Charles is. We like it that way since it means that even during the month of July when the beaches are packed with people we can stretch out and enjoy the sun.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
In Cape Charles you are certain to have a truly RELAXING and affordable beach vacation. Stretch out on our clean sandy beach, walk to shops and restaurants where you will never have to wait in line. Cape Charles has one of the largest concentrations of late-Victorian and turn-of-the-century buildings on the East Coast, with most of it's structures built between 1885 and 1920. The entire town is designated as a Historic District on the Virginia Landmarks Register and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
