Home away from home loaded with extras!
"My husband and I have been renting homes through VRBO for several years and this home is one of a few that provided EVERYTHING we needed plus all the extras which brought the comforts of home. Over the course of the week we had a group of 14 people made up of 6 adults and 8 children and grandchilden ranging in ages from 3 to 20. The kitchen was stocked with spices and it was quite evident that the past renters operated on the honor system, which made it exciting to have dinner each night without scrambling for extras. After we replaced what we used, rather than take unopened food we purchased we left it in the spirit of others who had also done the same. There were 21 bikes in the garage and pool toys and even an air compressor which made it really easy to blow up the rafts (we left those too). The crab pots and fishing poles were a hit with everyone as were the boats. The house is made for enabling comfortable sleeping and a home away from home feel with ample classic movies, blankets in the living room and games for rainy days which made it perfect for all of us."

"This is our second time staying at the Cheriton. We really love it there. The fishing was great, we caught
lots of flounder and some croaker, whiting and blue fish. The house always has everything that we need.
The boat shed is especially great! We were able to clean and filet our fish that we caught and go ahead
and freeze them.
We are looking forward to our stay next year."

"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!"

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!"
