A place to 'unplug' from the norm and embrace the old, the peaceful, the relaxing. Return to a simpler time, to a time of playing outside and sitting on front porches as a family. Or runaway to connect with yourself or friends. This home is the healing place for the soul.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We are a family that is about family. We felt so blessed by our two relaxing and joyfilled vacations here in Cape Charles that we did not want our time to end so we purchased this home. Everyone who has been here feels the same. It is something peaceful and different about this home, this town and this area. We know that you will feel the same.
Why the Owner Chose Cape Charles: We fell in love with the bay, the calm water and quiet cozy beach, and the town of Cape Charles with it's old fashioned charm, laid back feeling, and by gone ways.
The Unique Benefits at this House: When we are not enjoying one of the many activities around town, like live music, a parade, a festival, a talent show or play or enjoying a great meal at one of the many restaurants, we find ourselves gathering on the front porch just as we did when we were children. We are grown with children of our own now but our mom still tells us to be in when the street lights come on!
