About the property

Come relax in our newly renovated and furnished 107-year-old house two short blocks from the Chesapeake Bay beach in charming Cape Charles, Virginia, a turn-of-the-(last)-century railroad town on Virginia's Eastern Shore. From the wraparound front porch with ceiling fans and rocking chairs, enter the sunny foyer, which leads into the dining/reading room with book-filled shelves. Step through to the light-filled kitchen, fully equipped for summertime chefs, with corian counters, stainless steel farm sink, french-door refrigerator, jenn-air stove top, lots of shelves and cabinets, and a pass-through window to the t.v. room. Attached is the mud room with washer and dryer. The t.v. room connects to the family room, with sofa-bed and chairs, and a full bath. Double french doors lead to the full back deck and fenced backyard, ready for barbecues.

Up the beautifully-crafted staircase are three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a premium queen bed, and en suite bathroom with double sinks and glass shower. Bedroom 2 also has a premium queen bed. Bedroom 3 has a single over double bunk bed, and a twin trundle bed (room sleeps 5 children, or 2 adults). The hall shower is tiled in aqua accents, and has a vanity and glass shower. Windows abound in all rooms. Two-zone central HVAC, plumbing and electrical are all fully modernized.

About Julia Stone

We have been coming to Cape Charles since 2002, and can't seem to resist the charm of the old houses set in this great old town. Happily, there are also plenty of fun, outdoorsy things to do here, too. We ride our bikes around all the time, kayak at the beach, and have lots of family gatherings here.

Julia Stone purchased this house in 2010

Why Julia Stone chose Cape Charles

We LOVE Cape Charles. It is such a retreat for us to be among one of the most scenic and historic areas in Virginia. The old town charm is so satisfying, and the modern amenities of good restaurants, golf courses, beach access, boating, birding, kayaking, fishing, and antiquing are a great addition. People are nice here, and the pace is measured. Fun activities such as the Fourth of July parade, the Tomato Festival, Virginia garden week, and Christmas progressive dinner are very welcoming.

A Real Gem

  • 4 of 5

Ample space for everyone. Great up to date bathrooms. But, still maintains charm of older home. Really liked large dining table. House well stocked for most any need. Convenient to everything. Large corner lot provides privacy on a beautiful street.

The home is perfectly clean, has plenty of space, and best of all the location was great. Only 2 blocks to the beach, 2 blocks to the main street, and 2 blocks to the park. Highly recommend this location in Cape Charles

This is a very well stocked house with quality furnishings. We have stayed here for several summers and it suits our needs perfectly. It's in close proximity to the beach and Mason Street. Perfect house... don't change a thing!

Gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

Not knowing anything about Cape Charles, we chose this property for our family getaway. From beginning to end, we enjoyed our stay. While the owners have renovated the home, it maintains its charm and character. The location is super convenient and the neighborhood is something out of the past. The home is comfortable and the owners have paid attention to every detail. We've rented many vacation homes and there was always a hotel-like quality to them. This home felt like one was staying with family. They provided the linens and towels, which makes it easy when you travel. A couple of us are a bit on the OCD side about cleanliness. This home was spotless and awesome. I had one question and I literally hit "send" on my phone to ask a question of the owner and almost instantly my cell phone was ringing. She was so kind and accommodating. When we return to Cape Charles, I will definitely try to rent this home again. We had an excellent experience.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

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!
