About the owner: Rentals are from Saturday to Saturday, as it is dependent upon our cleaning service
Why the Owner Chose Onancock: We have chartered sailboats on the Chesapeake Bay many times and have always been attracted to the area. One summer we rented this property and when it was put on the market, we knew we had found the right house for us.
The Unique Benefits at this House: A unique hexagonal house with a detached hexagonal garage/guest house - it is really fun to live here. Although the house is not large, having separate living quarters is a plus. Naturally in fine weather we spend most of our time on the deck and the dock, or on the water. There is so much to do without having to drive anywhere!
