  • Great place!

    "Fantastic waterfront location with all the amenities. I would highly recommend this property for families. The condo is well outfitted and in a great location. There's lots to do within walking distance and the beach and national wildlife refuge are just a few minutes away."

  • 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!"

  • Amazing, Relaxing and Highly Enjoyable

    "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!"

  • Magical Chincoteague Home

    "If you love wildlife and want to see them in their natural habitat, then Chincoteague Island is the place for you. We have had two wonderful stays there at Spinnaker House, the well-loved home of Pat and Harmon who share their warmth and comfortable “home away from home” with anyone wanting a magical time at Chincoteague. Spinnaker has five bedrooms and four bathrooms and a beautiful living room complete with fireplace overlooking one of the canals. We enjoyed a week of family reunion as well as individual quiet. Our days were spent at the refuge and in the evenings and mornings, we shared dinners and breakfasts at Spinnaker. The home is comfortable and homey, making it easy to relax and enjoy each other. The canal on one side and marsh on the other are home to water birds including great blue herons, mergansers, mallards, egrets and many more. And of course, there is the magic of the Chincoteague Wildlife refuge only minutes away. Spinnaker is the perfect place to stay, but book it before your wished-for vacation week is taken!!"

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 park also has camping grounds, a boat launch, recreational facilities and cabins.

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.
