Recent Eastern Shore reviews

  • Condo itself was great!!

    "But there were a few maintenance items that needed to be addressed. The size of the rooms were great, deck was spectacular and kitchen and granite countertops were really nice. However, there were a few items that needed to be fixed, the deck could have used a table and it would have been nice if we would have been told to bring dish soap or paper towels ahead of time. Otherwise, it was convenient to be within walking distance of town, pool was in good working order and we had no problems with parking in the lot. We unfortunately couldn't get into the room until after check-in time which was pretty inconvenient since we had a toddler with us and had driven for so long, and check-out was 10 AM, which is pretty early."

  • Cute and Comfortable Home

    "We were more than pleased with our stay in this home. Comfortable, quiet, lovely view and feels like it's away from it all but is just a short bike ride to downtown and 10 minute drive to the beach and many points of interest. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. The home was light-filled and casual and had a family-friendly layout. We loved dining on the screened porch. Wifi worked great, enjoyed browsing the book collection, and there were plenty of spare pillows and blankets. The dishwasher and clothes dryer were finicky but workable. We would be happy to stay here again."

  • Cute house at Trails End Campground

    "Trails End is an interesting place near Chincoteague, VA. This is a charmingly decorated small, good value unit. The owners are very responsive and nice and easy to work with. We made a last minute reservation and enjoyed our stay. Very reasonable price. Trails End is a trip, with a combo of post-Hippie and retired military types and rather facinating."

  • First Rate!

    "Unplugged is a wonderful property on the beautiful island of Chincoteague. We spent Pony Penning Week there with our family of six adults and three children, ages ranging from 1 to 71 years old! We enjoyed the week in this wonderful house tremendously. The house has every amenity you need - bicycles, beach toys and chairs, crab pots and traps, and even a kayak - to make the most of your time outside. It also has plenty of games, puzzles, and comfy couches for napping and relaxing on Island time. The kitchen is easy to use and has every appliance we needed for fantastic family meals. (There's a wonderful produce place on Church Street, half a mile away, for fresh fruit and veggies. And His and Hers on Maddox sells live crabs and incredibly fresh seafood that satisfied even our incredible appetite for good seafood.) Even without the famous ponies, there is plenty to do and see. We couldn't fit it all in. The property is within walking distance to Main Street for strolls in and out of all the cute shops. It's within short biking distance (a couple of miles) from Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge Center and Assateague Islands where there are lovely trails to walk, hike, and bike and beautiful, uncrowded beaches (compared to the Jersey shore) to spend your days swimming, sunbathing, and kite flying. Plus the wildlife is amazing. My children, ages 7 and 10, had a wonderful time. They earned their junior park ranger badges and patches at the two National Park/Wildlife Refuge Centers, biked to their hearts' content, fished and crabbed for the first time (Jimmy at Captain Steve's Tackle Shop is super friendly and encouraging), and thoroughly enjoyed being unplugged. The owners, Greg and Susan, couldn't have been more friendly or more accommodating. They answered our many questions and gave first rate recommendations. The house is in fantastic shape - just right for a week along the Eastern shore."

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.
