Cape Charles apartment description

INTRODUCTION SPECIAL - WE WOULD LIKE TO PROVIDE A HALF-DAY GUIDED TRIP TO THE BARRIER ISLANDS (FOR FOUR PEOPLE) WITH A WEEK'S RENTAL. The Fish House is located in Oyster, just across Highway 13 from the quaint little town of Cape Charles - on Virginia's Eastern Shore. The 'Fish House' is located in a little cul-de-sac with only 3 other homes. It sits on 1 acre and has a pond of its own in the back yard. We are close to 4 marinas/launching ramps and beaches. It is a 2nd story 2 BR unit over a spacious, open 2-car garage – which has a washer, dryer and wet sink and a picnic table. Why, you ask, would a picnic table be in a garage? Because that is our absolute favorite place to hang after a day of fishing or sunning/beach combing at the beach. It is… shaded, spacious, and cool (sometimes we turn a fan on). If there is a rainy day, hang out down there and play corn hole or darts. There is also a deck upstairs on which you will find a grill and chairs – perfect place to sit and drink your morning coffee or evening beverage of choice. The view from the upstairs deck is our own pond – one stocked with fish – that are NOT to be fished – and turtles. We always throw bread into the pond from the 2 decks – it’s fun to watch the turtles and fish compete for the “treats”. There is also a covered fish cleaning station – and the hose at the back of the house will stretch to there when you need it – and 2 Adirondack chairs. Please don't throw the cleaned fish carcasses into our pond!! This might be a nice place to sit in the evening as well. Inside the Fish House there are 2 large bedrooms. The first one is carpeted and has a queen bed and dresser. The other guest room is hardwood floors – like the rest of the house – and has a queen bed and a double/full bed. There is a “great room” which is the living room / island / kitchen area and one large bathroom. You’ll have a sofa and chair in the living room that you can use to watch the TV that has cable, a DVD player and DVD collection and a stereo. There is also a bookshelf with books for you to read. The kitchen contains all you would need for cooking (except for the food, you’re on your own there ? ) The bathroom is large and has a shower, toilet and sink. Downstairs you will also be able to shower (the best of the 2 available in our opinion) in a closed off, private outdoor shower – can be used for an actual shower or rinsing off after a day at the beach. You have got to stay here at least once to appreciate all it offers. We LOVE this house and think you will, too. If you would have any neighbors it would most likely be only on the weekend – we have homes on both sides of the house that are used mainly by “weekend” fishermen. There are 3 open acres across from the house. LOTS of quiet. The Fish House is available for daily (3 night minimum), weekly or monthly rentals.

Cape Charles and the Eastern Shore are wonderful to explore. Sporting enthusiasts can golf, kayak, or go horseback riding or bird watching nearby. Boating and fishing are available from the Cape Charles Harbor, Kiptopeke State Park, Wise Point, Cherrystone Campgrounds and Oyster. Short drive to restaurants, shops, Central Park, grocery store and golfing.

There is so much to do and see on Virginia’s Eastern Shore – not to mention you’re only 20 minutes from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel (which takes you directly to Virginia Beach) - so, come and spend a weekend, a “long” weekend or month at our Fish House and experience some of what we love so much about this area.

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: I've been an Eastern Shore guide for 25 years.

              Why the Owner Chose Cape Charles:
              This is the 'Last Frontier' on the eastern coast. Lots of undeveloped land and great fishing opportunities.

              When we purchased this property the privacy and pond full of fish and turtles were the selling points.
