Property description

Hideaway by the Bay is an air conditioned, nicely furnished, 14 year old vacation home located on a quiet street in this historic bayside community. Relax on the front porch; or, sit out on the back deck as you sip your morning coffee and listen to the birds and seagulls.

There's a gas barbecue grill on the back deck to cook up your catch of the day or enjoy your barbecue. Adults might enjoy sitting out the deck to eat while the kids might enjoy the picnic table in the yard. If it gets too hot, just come back in to the air conditioning.

Take leisurely strolls, shop, golf or dine in and around town. Bring your bikes or rent bikes in town.

You can rent golf carts, wave runners, jet boats and tow tubes and wakeboards right in town. Guests who stay here at Hideaway by the Bay should inquire about available discounts on golf cart rentals at Eastern Shore Custom Carts. Park your car, SUV, boat and the golf cart right in the driveway..

The house is about 4-5 blocks (4/10ths of a mile) away from the beach. It's well within walking distance; but, a golf cart would make it so much more fun.

The calm waters of the bay are perfect for families with children. Splash in the water, build sandcastles on the beach, fish off the pier; or, watch the sun set over the Bay.

Go kayaking and explore the Bay or kayak right up to one of the wineries along the Bay for some wine and cheese with Southeast Expeditions.

Hideaway by the Bay has a private drive with access from the street. It's perfect for boaters who want to bring their boats along with them on vacation. The Town's harbor includes a public boat ramp and transient boat slips. Fisherman will find a conveniently located bait and tackle shop right in town.

Travel north and explore the towns along Virginia's Eastern Shore using the book 'Off 13' as a guide. The book is in the house for use by travelers staying here at Hideaway by the Bay.

Take a drive about 10 miles south to visit the Eastern Shore of Virginia's National Wildlife Refuge.

Drive onto the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel to have breakfast, lunch or dinner in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay at the Sea Gull Pier Restaurant. There's also a 625 foot fishing pier right next to the restaurant along with a gift shop overlooking the Bay.

Seasonal produce, fresh seafood, ice cream, and many other goodies are available either in town or within a short drive from Hideaway by the Bay. There is something here for everybody to enjoy.

Golf carts are permitted in Cape Charles and you'll see them all around town. Residents and guests alike enjoy driving and riding around Town in golf carts.

Local fishermen, watermen and a tour boat /fishing charter captain live right nearby Hideaway by the Bay as neighbors. If you can catch up with them, they'll be happy to guide you to the "best kept" secret spots available to the public...

Beach supplies are available at Hideaway by the Bay so you can pack less and still have what you need to have fun. There are beach towels, 2 adult beach chairs with umbrellas, a small folding beach table and a beach cart.

You'll find a 32 quart Igloo cooler, 2 soft insulated coolers, a small jug with matching 6 pack cooler, a matching woven beach bag and beach mat set, a couple of beach bags, sand buckets and shovels, sand sifters, a picnic basket and citronella candles. There is garden hose with an upright pole with a rinse off shower head along with a garden hose for use as a foot bath.

Car: Recommended

Cape Charles, an historic Victorian-era town, is located at the southern end of Virginia's Eastern Shore on the Delmarva Peninsula.

Cape Charles, once a railroading town, is rich with history, and a step back in time ambience. Adding to the charm of the town and its relaxed atmosphere are local customs which reflect early traditions of life on the water.

Eclectic shops, restaurants, an old fashioned soda fountain at the town's only pharmacy, a hardware store, a bait and tackle shop, the Cape Charles Museum, plus art and antiques galleries can be found in town.

Cape Charles has a friendly town beach with a gazebo, a free fishing pier jutting out over the Chesapeake Bay, a working harbor with a public boat launch; and a park in the center of town.

Hideaway by the Bay is located in the center of town, right by the Town's beautiful Community Park.

Upscale amenities can be found at Bay Creek's' Resort and Club with 2 world class golf courses at one end of town and Bay Creek's upscale shops, restaurants and marina at the other end.

Other activities while staying at Hideaway by the Bay on the Eastern Shore would include: swimming, relaxing on the beach, boating, fishing, kayaking, winery tours, camping, nature trails, birding, National Wildlife Refuge exploration, Kiptopeke State Park, antique shopping, stargazing at the night sky, watching the spectacular sunsets over the bay.

Visit the ocean side Barrier Islands with an experienced eco-tour guide. Enjoy the beautiful seaside sights, sounds, birds, waterfowl, fish, dolphins, etc., as only an Eastern Shore native . can identify and point out for you. Captain Rick from Broadwater Bay EcoTours is native to the Shore. He can personalize your trip so that you'll get to see things of interest to you because he knows the best spots for shelling, sightseeing, fishing, etc.. On my tour out to the Barrier Islands, a pod of dolphins was swimming by on the way out to the ocean through the inlet between Cedar Island and Parramore Island. What a beautiful sight I was able to capture on video. Guest who stay at Hideaway by the Bay who wish to book a tour with the Captain, should inquire as to how they can obtain their discount.

Visit the Barrier Islands Center to learn about the history and artifacts of Virginia's barrier islands.

Have lunch on the water at Island House in Wachapreague or take a boat trip to Tangier Island.

There is so much to see and do just off of Route 13 that one trip just won't be enough. Have fun exploring the Eastern Shore, any time of the year. Come back again and again.
