Cape Charles cottage description

On Virginia's pristine Eastern Shore, only 17 miles from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, this charming & private bayfront village will exceed all your vacation expectations. Sandy beach & swimming are only steps & unbelievable sunsets!! Away-from-it-all, yet not too far off the beaten path.


Area & Property Details, Purple Cottage: Charming and updated 2 bedroom cottage on the Chesapeake Bay, barely 10 miles from historic Cape Charles with its new & amazing Nicholas/Palmer Golf Courses. Only 17 miles from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, so convenient to Virginia Beach and yet a world away. Smith Beach is a unique, private family community with sandy beach and a community boat ramp and dock just steps from the purple cottage. Enjoy fishing, hiking, swimming, and just plain Relaxing--what a splendid idea!! Do Nothing for a real change of pace. A 3 mile car ride takes you to fine dining at the Eastville Inn. A pleasant 30-40 minute ride north will bring you to Onancock with its many art galleries, cultural events, and restaurants. A bit further north, find the famous Chincoteague ponies of Chincoteague and Assateague Islands.


Activities & Attractions: Boating of all types abounds. Trailer your own boat or jet-ski, wave runner, or load your kayaks on top of your car, and they will see a lot of use at Smith Beach. The community boat ramp (steps from the cottage) is at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and a creek area know as 'The Gulf.' So there is quiet water for novice and/or young kayakers/canoers. The fishing is unsurpassed!! Kiptopeke State Park is nearby for hiking, nature walks, birdwatching, etc. Shop and enjoy the casual to elegant dining options in nearby Cape Charles (10 miles south) or Onancock (30 miles north). Visit Chincoteague Island's (50 miles north) famous ponies and go on the nature walk and enjoy Chincoteague's abundance of tourist/souvenir shops and restaurants. As the eastern shore peninsula area is only 10 miles across & is between the Chesapeake and the ocean, the area is easily explored by car & scenic water/nature vistas are everywhere apparent.
