                  Cape Charles is a charming historic bayside town of 10 square blocks with plenty to do.

Walk 5 small blocks to Brown Dog for some homemade ice cream, then down the street rent a paddle board or jet ski. Birding is plentiful and so are nightly sunsets on the bay. Dine in our well equipped kitchen or slip out for excellent fine dining or more casual dining.

Aqua is more fine dining located directly on the bay and also has amazing sunsets. Gull Hummock is a wine/cheese shop with wine tastings every Friday/Saturday. We also have a Day Spa for those in need of a massage/ pedicure. 2 Signature Golf courses are on the south side of town. Or take a kayak trip to Chatham Vineyards. One of 3 wineries on the Eastern Shore. The beautifully renovated Palace Theatre offers live performances. Cape Charles offers a vacation to connect you with your family.

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About: We live here in Cape Charles and purchased Pelican Watch Cottage as a rental property in 2000. Cape Charles is a perfect place for people who enjoy quiet old fashioned small town life. This is a great place to read on the beach and the shallow beach is perfect for children. Boaters love it here as well as foodies. We have wonderful chefs for a small town. Add in some gift and gourmet shops, lots of festivals, kayak tours, jet ski's, horseback riding and its a great place to unwind.

                  Why Cape Charles:
                  We live here in Cape Charles and purchased this house as a rental property in 2000. We love the sunny cottage with its views and the amazing bay breezes that blow through.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Pelican Watch Cottage has breathing room on each side. The neighborhood is one of the quietest areas in the town. Sunsets are spectacular from the back deck or from down on the beach. The house is on the north end of the beach, and we love watching the seagulls and pelicans and other shore birds perching on the pilings from the old ferry dock.
