Chincoteague house description

No Smoking and No Pets, Please!

Elevator in Main House! And a 2nd Refrigerator for all your food & drink.

With one bathroom designed to be handicapped accessible, we are very accommodating for people in wheelchairs or who have a hard time with stairs.

Eureka! has several sleeping areas:
The Main House: Sleeps 12.
(3 bedrooms with King Beds, 1 room with 4 bunk beds, Sleep Sofa in the media room)
The Guest House: Sleeps 6.
Guest House - First Floor: Sleeps 2 (King bed).
Guest House - Second Floor: Sleeps 4 (two rooms, one with a sleep sofa, the other with two twin beds).

There are no cooking facilities in the Guest House. It is never rented separately.

No other house on Chincoteague can legally accommodate nearly as many people.

Fantastic for Large Family Reunions: When rented in conjunction with 2 neighboring houses, 35 people can be accommodated on site. Ask for details!

Eureka! is the PREMIER vacation home on Chincoteague. Period. 'Spectacular' and 'Fantastic' are the words that come to mind when you consider the design of the house and its location. Our aim is that each guest also uses those words to describe their entire vacation experience.

The siting of this house is unique: You are above the 'Deep Hole' at the end of Deep Hole Creek, overlooking Oyster Bay, Little Oyster Bay, Assateague Bay with vast unobstructed natural water views.

Many weddings have been held here since 2009. The brides were thrilled. Other large groups hosted (in conjunction with adjacent rental houses) include corporate retreats, a yoga weekend, a hunting retreat, and a quilter's bee.

Over 100 feet of frontage on Deep Hole Creek -- the pictures do not do it justice! (Well, the video comes closer!)

The 2nd floor deck offers the most sweeping & spectacular views from any house in Chincoteague...

At ground level, there are expansive wood decks, and a long bulkhead for crabbing and tying up boats and plenty of sun or shade (with seating and dining areas) depending on your preference. Hammocks. Plus several shaded picnic table and seating areas.

And a floating dock that makes water access even easier! The floating dock is shared with Epiphany (a neighboring house), as are the water toys, which include a Canoe and two 2-person Old Town Kayaks.

Main House: On the first level, with 9' ceilings, there are FOUR bedrooms, each with its own bath, and each with its own private balcony. All have water views. Two have water views in two directions. ONE Bedroom, designed for kids, has 4 bunk beds (3 twin, 1 full) but could handle single adults if needed. THREE BEDROOMS have KING beds. Each of the king bedrooms has custom tiled showers. One is handicapped accessible, another has a marble vanity, the third has a custom glass vanity.

There is an open breezeway deck with stairs down to the dock area as well as indoor stairs.

On the second floor, you enter directly into a large Great Room and Kitchen with cathedral ceilings, bay windows, picture windows, two large decks (one with the wide-angle view and full sun; the other covered with an outdoor grill); both have dining areas.

The kitchen is simply fabulous: Look at the photos, and read the details below.

There is also a cozy media room with a 42' flat screen TV and a full size sleep sofa. The 2nd floor bath is next door, so using this room for sleeping is attractive. Enjoy our large library of books. Many guests have commented on how much they appreciate our large collection of board games.

Broadband Internet/Wi-Fi. There are several wireless access points, so the signal is strong throughout the house. There is a whole house sound system with many pairs of speakers on the main living level. Bring your Ipod and plug it in.

Two decks open off the 2nd floor great room. One is the open deck with the wide angle views, the other is the covered breezeway deck, still with great views, but also with the gas grill. Both decks have dining tables.

Guest House, First Floor Suite (First floor of small house): Across the breezeway (cedar-shingled exterior, radial, almost two story window wall, on the left in the aerial photo). All on the main floor, the living area has sweeping water views through the stunning curved window wall. The master bedroom (king bed), boasts a LUXURIOUS bathroom with a TILED two-person shower with body jets. THERE IS a WONDERFULLY private corner WATERFRONT balcony looking south. (There are no cooking facilities in the Suite.)
More details at the DeepHoleCreek website. browse down to that link.

The master suite in the guest house is an ideal choice for the special couple... whether you are planning a Chincoteague Wedding, a Golden Anniversary, or anything in between. Email for more details..

The 2nd floor of the Guest House has two additional rooms: One is right over the creek with the best view of all, with a sleep sofa. This is the best room on a mid-winter sunny afternoon. The other has two twin beds. Both rooms share a bath. Use of these rooms increases the capacity of the house to 18.

Extensive ground level wooden decks all along the bulkhead, hammocks, lots of deck furniture provide many spaces for relaxation.

The ladder down the side of the bulkhead to the floating dock makes boating and swimming easier.

NOTES: if you bring small children the waterside dock areas will require you to exercise constant vigilance over them. The upper decks offer more enclosed outdoor areas. Some people with small children choose not to use this house for that reason. We understand, and hope you will return when the kids are a bit older.

All rentals include Linens (Sheets, bath towels). Please bring your own beach towels, and please do NOT take the linen service company's towels to the beach.

          Kitchen & Dining

          • Kitchen:

            Check out the photos of the kitchen. When I am working in it by myself, it feels too big. You can see why. But when we have lots of people staying at the house, a bunch of us can each cook up a storm and never get in each others' way. Some cook, some sit on the bar stools and keep pouring drinks. Everyone is there. Then, it is the center of the house. So, if you have friends and family who all enjoy doing things in the kitchen together, this is the place to be! Details: granite counters including curved bar area, custom cabinets, curved bar, two sinks, dishwasher, beverage cooler to save space in the refrigerator, flat surface electric cook-top, electric range. Sculptural stainless steel and glass range hood... etc. etc. Because of limitations with the septic system, there is no disposal. Sorry! There are convenient pull out trash can drawers right next to each sink. Everyone thinks this is great. We provide many upscale dishes, glasses, cooking and serving items. Th...moreless

          • Cooking Utensils:

            There is everything for the gourmet cooks you bring. Really. You will quickly notice that the kitchen is stocked by people who like to cook. Every time I am in Williams Sonoma I can't resist getting new cooking toys. We have a Cuisinart, coffee grinder, two electric coffee makers, a French press pot, sharp chopping knifes, many cutting boards, extra garlic presses and cork screws, and all the pots and pans you will ever need. Seriously, if you really think you are missing something, call me, and I'll see if I can get it delivered before your stay is over. If you think we need it, then I probably want it! Or, before you arrive, ask me if we have something. If I'm not sure, I'll make sure it is there before your arrival....moreless

          • Refrigerator:

            (2) This is a 'french door' style so you can open both doors at once. This is nice. The freezer is below. The second refrigerator is in a ground floor storage room next to the elevator, so extra food and drink can be stored there until needed. We have an under-counter beverage cooler, so you don't need to fill the frig with drinks. Funny thing is, I don't think anyone uses it. Oh well....moreless

          • Toaster:

            a quad toaster. If you use both sides, and have the pancake griddle on, and are running two coffee pots, a circuit may blow. As it should. The kitchen breakers are clearly labeled in the panel box....moreless

          • Dishwasher:

            We had one guest (out of twenty five) in 2010 who called because they couldn't figure out how to run the dishwasher. Folks, this is a dishwasher. You press the button!...moreless

          • Catering Available:

          • Washing Machine:

            The washer and dryer are in their own spacious laundry room on the first floor next to the bedrooms. Even the laundry room has a water view! What were we thinking??? There was no way around it....moreless

The Main house great room has cathedral ceilings; The first floor (with the bedrooms) in both houses has spacious 9' ceilings; The guest house living room has cathedral ceilings with a unique curved two-story window wall.

              Entertainment

              • Music Library:

                In the Main house, there are many pairs of speakers built into the ceilings of the Kitchen and the Great Room, as well as on the balconies. They are all wired back to a speaker switch in the media room with a CD player and Amplifier. Most importantly, there is a wire so you can connect an Ipod/iphone/ipad/other device to the Amplifier, and play your music throughout the top floor of the house. We are also building a small music library, but since everyone now brings their own, this is not a priority. There are also lots and lots of books, for kids of all ages, for adults. Fiction and non fiction. Our game collection is really extensive, and many guests comment about how much they like that. So we keep adding more games....moreless

              • Satellite / Cable:

                (2) The media room has a large 42' flat screen TV with a DirectTV satellite connection. We just added an electronic HD antenna device for the several local channels. Our teenager certifies that this meets requirements. There is a home theatre sound system, DVD player and all that stuff. There is also a satellite receiver and home theater system in the living area in the guest house....moreless

              • Broadband Access:

                The house has an DSL line with a wireless router, no password is required. AT&T recently upgraded their 3G internet service for Iphones in our neighborhood. I like that a lot. Verizon has always worked here. Other wireless carriers seem to work as well....moreless

                  • Communal Pool:

                    Well, it is not a pool, it is a tidal creek! Just jump in and swim. Since the tidal current is strong, this is for experienced swimmers only. There are shells in the creek, so water shoes are a good idea. during the summer season, we sometimes see jellyfish float by. I've never heard of anyone being stung by them....moreless

                  Outdoor Features

                  • Deck / Patio:

                    The entire 100 foot frontage on Deep Hole Creek is a dock area. It extends all along the water's edge in front of the house and along the sides and through the breezeway. Depending on the time of day, there is shade and breeze in different places. There are hammocks, plenty of deck chairs, and a picnic table. You will spend a lot time on this dock. Please note: There are no railings on dock at the edge of the bulkhead, so small children who are not yet at the 'age of reason' need to be tied up! The higher decks have railings....moreless

                  • Balcony:

                    (8) There are lots of balconies. I almost ran out of fingers counting them! Each bedroom has one, and there are four large public ones. The 12 x 20 2nd floor deck offers the most spectacular views from any house in Chincoteague... this is NOT an exaggeration. For a better view, you will need to climb the Assateague light house!!!...moreless

                  • Gazebo:

                    Under the house, right at the water's edge, there is lots of shade during the heat of the afternoon. And there is almost always a breeze. This is where the two Hammocks are. Don't fight over them! Maybe we will get more next year. As my grandmother used to say, 'You can't have too many hammocks!!'...moreless

                  • Lanai / Gazebo:

                    The 2nd floor breeze way between the two houses offers a covered seating and eating area. The gas grill is here... just steps from the kitchen. We plan to install screening here for the 2012 season The first floor breezeway between the two houses is covered, and is yet another outdoor sitting area....moreless

                  • Kayak / Canoe:

                    The house shares 2 double kayaks and a canoe with the house behind (Epiphany). Plenty of toys for everyone. Sharing is NOT a difficult concept! ...moreless

                  • Outdoor Grill:

                    There is a gas grill on the 2nd floor breezeway....moreless

                  Location & View

                      • Waterfront:

                        The house is on Deep Hole Creek --A tidal creek that fills Little Oyster Bay (just beyond the marsh opposite the house) I swim in the creek (it's most fun at slack high tide), and many people canoe and kayak. There are panoramic views extending much more than 180 degrees. Assateague and the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge are visible in the distance. Working watermen go up and down the creek as they go to their fishing/crabbing/oystering places. Local kayak tour guides bring their groups past the house. Tourists get lost. The bird life is amazing. There is an active osprey nest to watch in the channel just across the marsh. Bring your binoculars and sit on the deck, in the sun or in the shade, and just watch. The night sky is also stunning. Bring a telescope for the kids. Pick up some chicken necks and string, use our nets, and catch some crabs. Sitting, or actively recreating in this area is in many ways more fun than the beach. ...moreless

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1970

                      About the owner: Our family has owned this place since I was a kid. For years, it was a dilapidated, but incredibly charming ancient clam house, right on the water, and during storms, under water. I remember playing in the water as a kid, as our kids (one pictured in canoe) will too.

                      Why the Owner Chose Chincoteague:
                      As time went by, maintenance on the old clam house became problematic. We decided to replace it with a modern structure, higher and drier. We were delighted when the new house offered a charm of its own, different but comparable to the charm of the old house. We were closely involved with the design and construction of the house; working with local designer Richard Vesely (who has built many beautiful houses on Chincoteague--ask us for his contact information), and well known builder David Burgess, who has built many of them. We continue to be meticulous in upkeep and repairs, keeping David's crew employed regularly, with a philosophy of CANI (Continuous and Never ending Improvement). All houses require upkeep. Houses on Chincoteague exposed to the elements require more. We do that.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Crabbing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, boating from the dock. Watching the sunrise over Assateague, and then going back to sleep. Going to the beach at Assateague and the Chincoteague National wildlife preserve. Explore Chincoteague and Assateague with bikes. Go to the Island Creamery. Get great seafood from Gary Howard--right down the street. Cook it in our fully equipped kitchen while enjoying the ever-changing view. Get take out sandwiches from Sea Star Cafe. Get BBQ from Woody's on Maddox. Go see Randy and Nancy's artwork at Clouds Gallery. Get a latte from the Main Street Coffee Shop.
