  • A Thanksgiving Escape!

    "Our family of 4 plus 2 dogs had a wonderful time at Heron House. Our goal was to "get away from it all" - and that's what we did! Cape Charles is not very busy this time of year, but that was just fine with us. We enjoyed a nice walk on the windy beach and strolling along Mason Street with its cute little shops and restaurants. Everything is close-by. The house itself is lovely with tasteful decor and an amazing array of tools in the kitchen. We had everything we needed to cook a complete Thanksgiving meal right there! The large dining room table was also perfect for family game night. Our dogs enjoyed being able to run in the fenced-in yard and I'm sure the yard would be beautiful during spring and summer. Great service from the property manager, too. She was very accommodating and allowed a late check-out."

  • SISTERS WEEKEND ON PINEY ISLAND

    "Every year, my sisters and I plan a three day weekend to spend time together in a different place almost every year. The owner was very helpful in renting the house and she had a book with everything we needed to know about the area and things to do! We used it daily and it saved a lot of time. The house was clean and well appointed for our needs and the only problem we had was the mosquitos and no screened in porches, as we love to be outside the whole time we are there. The beds were extremely comfortable and we felt cozy in the house. There were seven of us and plenty of room at the dining table and in the living room. Assateague was everything we were told it would be and the $15.00 we spent on a weekly pass was worth every penny. We will definately come back next year!"

  • Enjoyed our stay

    "at Sea Breeze. Everything was as promised, and the small touches--laundry soap, beach towels and chairs, crab traps, toiletries--made a short vacation with a large family feel very luxurious. Thanks, 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.
