Recent Cape Charles reviews
"We went for a short visit with one other family and wished we could have stayed longer. This is a beautiful comfortable house - wonderful linens, furnishings and decor. Plus tons of extras - things to take to the beach, games if you stayed in, lots of kitchen items. The kids loved the bunk bed room. We definitely recommend this house!"

"My family and I rented the Great Escape to the Cape Escape home for Thanksgiving, and it was the best experience we could have hoped for! The house was big enough for everyone to spread out, and cozy enough for all of us to be together on the main floor. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, and we had lots of restaurants to choose from in the area when we got tired of leftovers. The house was also immaculate; literally sparking clean from top to bottom. I've never rented a house so carefully cared for! Also, for any questions we had, management was readily available, even though it was a holiday weekend. We will definitely consider the Great Escape again -- maybe for the summer! Thanks for a memorable experience!"

"My family spent the last two weeks at Gone to the Beach and had a fantastic time. During out stay we had a total of 6 adults, 2 children and a dog. The house comfortably suited all of our needs. The house was well stocked; the kitchen had everything we needed, there were plenty of towels, linens, toys for the kids, pack-n-plays, board games, movies, bikes, beach toys, etc. One of our favorite things was the outdoor shower as it was a great way to get the sand off the kids before bringing them inside. The beach was an easy golf cart ride away. We loved having access to the golf cart and my husband said it was the "coolest" golf cart on the beach. However, the thing that really set this rental apart from others that we have stayed at was the personal touch by the owners. Ashley has been great to work with from the very beginning, was quick to respond with questions, changes in our schedule and she even called to check on us during our stay to make sure we were comfortable. We will be back later this summer and look forward to staying here again. I would highly recommend this house for a great stay in Cape Charles."

Lovely, Well Equipped, & Meticulously Maintained Vacation Home
"10 of us (my parents 84 & 78 years old, my sister’s & my family, along with our 4 teenage kids) spent a wonderful week at the Pinnacle in Bay Creek, Cape Charles.
One could not ask for more in a vacation property. The Pinnacle had all the conveniences of home, & then some more. It is a lovely modern home, with a cozy, homely feel to it.
My parents loved relaxing in the screened deck which had a ceiling fan, & taking walks on the well-manicured grounds of the resort. My kids used the bicycles that were provided to explore the area. The house also had a good selection of books & DVD's that we all enjoyed. It also had beach chairs, & an umbrella that we could use for the beach. The private beach is fantastic for small kids to explore at low tide, & safe to swim & play around at high tide. No big waves to worry about.
We bought a bunch of live blue crabs from a local shop, & the house even had a big pot to steam them in!
The location is about 1 hour to Virginia Beach, so the kids took a couple day trips out there. If you like fishing, you have a few options with charters. We took one out with Capt. Walter Cropp (Cape Charles Charters), & caught a whole bunch of croakers, & a big Cobia. The land & the water is beautiful around Cape Charles.
Overall, the Pinnacle is a lovely, well equipped, & meticulously maintained vacation home. Kudos to the owners, Brad & Carmen Gilmore!"
