Onancock estate description

Sitting at the end of a long white clam shell driveway, this idyllic retreat nestles close to the Chesapeake Shore.

A classic Eastern Shore farmhouse, first mentioned in historical records of 1654 as part of the original Jamestown colony, it has been well maintained over the centuries and lovingly restored in recent years.

The accommodation comprises the Farmhouse and the Cottage - fifty yards apart - together they provide six bedrooms with six bathrooms and can very comfortably accommodate twelve plus.

The Farmhouse features two spacious living rooms winged with a screened porch opening to the long vistas of the Onancock River and Finney's Creek. There are three bedrooms arranged as a master suite with king size bed, a middle room with two twins and the over-kitchen bedroom with two doubles. There is a total of four bathrooms plus outside shower. A fully equipped kitchen opens onto the deck and features a picture window seat dining area and center island and bar stools.

The cozy Cottage has it's own sun porch and a lovely deck that overlooks the creek, along with a comfortable living room and three bedrooms - arranged as a master double bedroom and two twins upstairs with shared bathroom, and another two twin bedroom downstairs with it's own bathroom. The cottage also has a fully equipped kitchen which opens onto the deck.

In this tranquil location there is an endless range of activities to be enjoyed. Swimming, kayaking, boating, fishing or try your hand at crabbing off the thirty foot dock.

It is an area of outstanding natural beauty where wildlife abounds and there are always flowers in bloom whatever the season - the grounds are carefully maintained and include vegetable, herb and flower gardens.

The Farmhouse and Cottage offer a vacation that gives the very best that the Eastern Shore has to offer. Modern facilities in a landscape that has not changed in hundreds of years and in which you can truly relax and enjoy your life.
