Cape Charles house description

This 2-story country-style home features 3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, 2 half-baths with 1590 finished square feet. It was built in 1935 and has been completely updated and refurbished, but retains its country charm. It's located in the sleepy village of Cheriton which is only 3 miles from Cape Charles.

If you're looking for a place to stay for great fishing this is it. It's located close to four public boat ramps and two public fishing piers. Two ramps are on the Bay side (Cape Charles & Kiptopeke State Park) and two are on the ocean side (Oyster & Wise Point). Cape Charles and Kiptopeke State Park both have public fishing piers on the Bay side. This area is re-known for it's black drum, red drum, cobia, spadefish, tautog, speckled & gray trout, flounder and croaker fishing.

Just a 45 minute ride to Virginia Beach will provide all the nightlife, boardwalks, museums and shopping you will need. Within easy driving to the north is Chincoteague famous for it's wild ponies and the pony round-up and sale each year. There are many small village and towns that are both scenic and historically interesting. There are many restaurants from mom & pop's to upscale to enjoy.

If you're looking for a quiet or romantic get-away this will fill the bill. Relax on the front porch or the screened-in patio on the back. Cook-out on the gas grill and kick back! House is cooled by 2-zone heat pump system.

If you're into bird & wildlife viewing you'll find this area rich in both. The fall bird migration here is spectacular! There are many areas set-up for bird and wildlife viewing. Both Kiptopeke State Park and the Eastern Shore Wildlife Refuge have trails and wildlife viewing areas.

There is a 36 x 36 garage with a drive-through bay for parking your boat or vehicle. The over-head clearance is 11’ 10”, so your center-console boats with T-tops will easily fit. You are able to drive-out of the garage and out the back of the lot onto a back street. This prevents problems with having to back your boat out onto a street.
Also, for fishermen there is a covered & lighted fish-cleaning station with water. This station has an electrical outlet for your electric fillet knives. There is also a 50' water hose for cleaning the table and rinsing off your boat & trailer.

The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, range, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, blender, cookware and tableware. There is also a washer and dryer. The living room has a flat screen TV with high definition satellite programming. There is a screened-in patio with patio furniture for relaxing or having your meals outside. A gas grill is furnished for your outdoor cooking.

Linens are not provided. You should bring your own sheets, pillow cases and towels. There is 1 queen-size bed, 1 full-size bed and 2 twins.

The rental rate is $125 per night or $800 per week. The limit is 6 persons per stay. There is a 10% tax (5% state and 5% Northampton Co lodging tax). A damage deposit of $100 is required. It will be returned after the stay provided there is no damage to the property. The security deposit is not charged for repeat guests. There is no cleaning fee added.

Should it be necessary to cancel a reservation and notice is made at least 14 days prior to the arrival a full refund will be made. If notice is made less than 14 days prior to the arrival the deposit will be forfeited if unable to rent the same period to other guests.

Please be sure to let us know, in advance, what time you plan to arrive. It would be helpful if you would supply us with a cell phone number in case we need to contact you during your travel.
