  • Magical Chincoteague Home

    "If you love wildlife and want to see them in their natural habitat, then Chincoteague Island is the place for you. We have had two wonderful stays there at Spinnaker House, the well-loved home of Pat and Harmon who share their warmth and comfortable “home away from home” with anyone wanting a magical time at Chincoteague. Spinnaker has five bedrooms and four bathrooms and a beautiful living room complete with fireplace overlooking one of the canals. We enjoyed a week of family reunion as well as individual quiet. Our days were spent at the refuge and in the evenings and mornings, we shared dinners and breakfasts at Spinnaker. The home is comfortable and homey, making it easy to relax and enjoy each other. The canal on one side and marsh on the other are home to water birds including great blue herons, mergansers, mallards, egrets and many more. And of course, there is the magic of the Chincoteague Wildlife refuge only minutes away. Spinnaker is the perfect place to stay, but book it before your wished-for vacation week is taken!!"

  • Beautiful house, amazing views, great location

    "This house is beautiful and is in a great location with fantastic views. The kitchen is really nice and updated and almost all the furniture is comfortable and nice too. We loved the dock and overall the house is great. BUT the kitchen has barely anything stocked, no steamer, cookie trays, stuff like that. There were rusty items in the kitchen as well, the coffee maker was in horrible shape too. The deck, which is fairly good size overlooking the amazing view HAS NO CHAIRS what good is having a deck WITH NO CHAIRS? We had to drag our beach chairs back and forth from our car to the deck! And the screened in porch is tiny and can barely fit 4 people and the door when opened blocks almost half the screened porch. The dock has absolutely no seating either so be aware if you want to go down by the dock and enjoy the view, you will be bringing a chair with you. A bunch of doors are old and annoying/hard to open and close. The washer didn't even fill up half way with water so you can't fill it too much when washing. Love island getaways and from all the great reviews it seemed great, I think the owners need to actually take a look at the house they own. Happily this didn't effect our vacation at all and had an awesome time as usual, but for my family who has been coming to chincoteague and renting houses for 15 years, this was disappointing."

  • Very enjoyable Time on the Eastern Shore

    "Karen has been great to work with. The home is lovely inside and I love how the house is situated to take advantage of the views. Karen has done a great job compiling info for the area. Along with her personal recommendations. Our stay has been very enjoyable and I love all the extras. Bikes canoes kayak Horse Shoes etc. I do not provide this many extras at my rental due to the intensive labor it requires to maintain them. Great time has been had even enjoyed falling in the cove.

  • Wonderful Thanksgiving Getaway

    "We had wonderful stay for the Thanksgiving holiday! Laura, the owner, was very easy to communicate with and we felt welcome from start to finish. The house is beautiful, with lots of room for our group of 10. We enjoyed the games, the view, fishing from the dock, the large kitchen, a gorgeous dining room where we could all sit together, and walking to town was a giant plus. Onancock was a treasure we hadn't expected. We'd love to come back in the summer when we can take advantage of the large screen porch, grassy yard, and the boat! All around, the home made for an awesome stay!"

Eastern Shore Travel Tips

Attractions and Activities at Virginia Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals

Virginia's eastern shore is a beautiful stretch of coastline on Chesapeake Bay that runs for 70 miles down to the Atlantic Ocean. There are several notable places of interest that are worth visiting. The NASA Wallops Flight Facility is a scientific research center for suborbital missions which is located on Chincoteague Island. Most of the operations involve aircraft research and the launching of sound rockets and scientific balloons. The center is open all year long and includes an exhibition hall, observation deck and video shows.

A well-known landmark near Chincoteague vacation rentals and the Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge is the Assateague Lighthouse. This impressive structure stands 142 feet tall and is 27 feet wide at its base. It was built in 1867 and is still an operational lighthouse today. The Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge is a great place for nature walks and bird watching. If you want to experience a place that is both remote and beautiful, visit Wreck Island. It is located on the far southern end of the chain of barrier islands and can only be accessed by boat. The nearest boat launch is seven miles west at the town of Oyster. On the island, you can see the visitors' center that has information about the island and a great wildlife-viewing deck. There are also nature trails that can be enjoyed. The Kiptopeke State Park is located three miles north of the Bay Bridge Tunnel. It offers birdwatching and wildlife viewing. The park also has camping grounds, a boat launch, recreational facilities and cabins. There are many small towns along the eastern shore that offer warm hospitality, great food and historic places of interest. One town well worth visiting is Parksley. The Railroad Square is surrounded by quaint shops and Victorian houses. Although the railway line no longer travels through town, you can still visit the restored railway station and the museum which has a collection of railroad memorabilia.
