    "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."

  • Great rental

    "Charming and well-equipped. Location was convenient. The towels were luxurious and the ambience cozy. Felt like a home, not a rental."

  • A wonderful home for a relaxing vacation

    "We had a lovely vacation in Cape Charles and this home was perfect. Everything was just as expected based on the pictures and our conversations with the owners. The house was clean and spacious and the beds were comfortable. We were a family of six - parents, grandparents and 2 kids and we had plenty of room. We enjoyed many lovely meals around the large dining table. Some of those meals even featured crabs we caught in Kings Creek or fish we caught out in the bay. It was so nice to keep our boat at the dock. Coming in was tricky the first time, but Bill gave us great tips and it was easy with practice. We enjoyed playing foosball. The pool was great and it almost felt private since we rarely saw anyone else there. When we first arrived and went into town for Clam Slam, I wasn't sure about Cape Charles. It just wasn't the "perfect" resort town that I thought I was looking for. Within a very short time, we were all in love with this imperfect, charming little town. I love that the coffee shop closes on a whim because the owner has somewhere to be. I love the same guy sits in front of the hardware store every day. I loved the blend of old and new and a unique local flavor. I highly recommend Cape Charles for a very laid back vacation. This house felt like home as soon as we walked in. I highly recommend! Thanks Bill & Debbie."

  • Great family week!!

    "We didn't decide until March that we wanted to vacation in Chincoteague Island and then only had one week when the six of us where all available. I jumped on the website and found John & Kay's place. We arrived July 5 early in the day and were greeted by Billy who was friendly and welcoming. The house was perfect! Everything we needed! Very clean, comfortable and roomy. We had a great time discovering the islands beach, shops, restaurants and scenery. Just what we needed! John and Kay answered all our questions and offered great tips on places to eat and see along with things to bring with us. Thanks for everything plan to come back."

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.
