  • 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."

Cape Charles Travel Tips

Cape Charles Vacation Rentals are Impressive

Enter Cape Charles from the awe-inspiring Chesapeake Bay Bridge and your vacation will only get better from there. When you choose to stay in Cape Charles vacation rentals, you will have spectacular views of this beautiful body of water. Many of the vacation homes in this area offer private decks for sunrise breakfasts. The VRBO homes offer the best value for your vacation dollars with artfully equipped kitchens, large living rooms and bedrooms for every member of your party. Whether you are interested in a cozy place for romantic getaway for two or a house large enough to accommodate a family reunion, you will have a myriad of choices.

Things to do and see Near Cape Charles Vacation Houses

Visitors to the area that enjoy late-Victorian or turn-of-the-century buildings can indulge this passion when staying in Cape Charles vacation houses. This area has a very large display of structures built between 1885 and 1920. The town has actually been listed as a Historic District in two places: the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places. Guests of Cape Charles homes can stop by the Cape Charles Museum and Welcome Center for more information on the town, its ferry service and railroads.

If you choose to stay at your vacation home in the summer, you and your family can enjoy the harbor parties that take place on the first Saturday of each month from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Party the night away with a band, dancing, food, beer and the glorious sunset.

If you chose a Cape Charles house that is not directly on the water, you may want to visit the town’s sandy beachfront park. There is also the opportunity to spot birds or other bits of nature at Kiptopeke State Park. In the fall of the year, the park has a bird banding station and is a great area to see the migratory hawks.

Looking for a night away from your luxury home? If you want an entertaining evening, take an excursion on the Bay Creek Railway. Dine in a restored 1913 Interurban Dining Car for a two-hour trip or just take a fun trip for an hour. Should you decide to bring your personal boat to Cape Charles, you can dock her at Cape Charles Harbor. You can find a lovely vacation home within walking distance of the marinas and spend your days cruising the bay.

Golfing is another delightful pastime that is available to guests of VRBO rentals. There are two wonderful golf courses in the area that were designed by golf pros, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus.

Virginia Vacation Equals Shopping by Cape Charles Condos

Take a walk into downtown Cape Charles from your beautifully decorated Cape Charles condos for a unique shopping experience.

However, if you want something that is truly Virginia-inspired, look to the local craft shops that display artwork or crafts. Another great find that you could come across on your trip to Cape Charles are the many antique shops or flea markets that dot the highways along the country roads.

If you wish to indulge in a true regional meal, try the Virginia country ham and grits at many of the restaurants in Cape Charles. Many of the eating establishments will serve their meals family-style so that no one leaves hungry. If you have any leftovers, you can keep them cool in the refrigerator at your condo to enjoy on your private balcony or patio the next day.
