Cape Charles house description

Plan a last minute getaway! Stay for 3 nights or more in May and get 20% off. BayWatch includes a private beach, spectacular water views and a fresh, immaculate home just 10 minutes from Cape Charles.

This newly-built three level home has unparalleled views of the Chesapeake Bay. Windows stretch across the bay-side of the house so the view can be enjoyed in the living areas, master bedroom and second bedroom. There isn't a bad seat in the house! We have made an effort to provide every amenity in a well-appointed, comfortable setting.

1st Floor/Main level: 1 queen bed, full bath
2nd Floor: Master bedroom with king, bedroom with 2 twins, full bath
Ground Floor: 2 sets of bunk beds, half bath
Towels and 400 thread-count bed linens are provided at the beginning of your stay.

Bring toys! You can kayak, sail, fish, ride bikes, waterski, jet ski, tube, or visit the sandbar that stretches out a few hundred yards from the shore. Relax on the private stretch of beach where you won't see a soul.

If you have a boat, a community ramp in a tidal inlet is only 100 yards away. Or you can use the free, full-service, public boat ramp/marina in Cape Charles. Then drive your boat around to Smith Beach and tie up on one of our pilings. Lots to do or just relax!

There are many spots to enjoy the views, breezes and sunshine. Take a cooler and chair down to the beach and relax on the sand with the bay lapping at your feet. At sunset, sit on our aloha deck overhanging the bluff to take in the gorgeous colors as the sun retreats for another day. You can also lounge on the house-side deck while you put some shrimp on the grill from one of the local seafood markets. If you need a break from the sun or want to make the most of the cooling breezes, perch on the porch--morning, noon or night it's a lovely spot.

Beyond the beach, there are dunes to hike nearby, antiquing, kayak excursions, charter boats, fishing and more. There are also a number of dining options within 15 minutes: Mexican, Southern cooking, seafood, Pub fare, pizza, coffee house/cafe, Chinese carry-out and diners. You can also get seafood from the local seafood market, or prime meats from the local butcher and fix yourself a gourmet meal while you enjoy the views. For your convenience there is a Food Lion, Dollar Store, ABC liquor store and pharmacy nearby.

This is really a place to 'unplug' from your everyday life. There is a land line phone with free long distance so you can make calls if your cell phone doesn't get good coverage. To make sure you connect with nature and true relaxation, there is no internet or wifi. If you suffer from withdrawal, you can get a bite to eat and surf the web at the Cape Charles Coffee House or the Machipongo Trading Company to the north on Rt. 13.
