Property description

Our family has traveled all over the world to beach resorts and famous fishing locations. We discovered the quaint seaside village of Quinby, VA and fell in love with it! We walk down to the harbor where our boat is docked and explore the barrier islands of the Eastern Shore. Amazing fishing (in-shore and off-shore), clamming, crabbing, shelling, tubing, surfing and picnicking on the beach.

The town is quiet and perfect for biking and relaxing on the patio at night under the stars with the firepit. We enjoy spotting satellites and stars at night. We also love to explore the nearby antique stores for treasures, and visit the local wineries. We have hosted many fishing parties, and everyone always leaves relaxed and happy.

The fishing is amazing. We are just south of Wachapreague, the flounder capital of the East Coast. You will find some amazing beaches on the nearby barrier islands accessible by boat: Perrimore and Hog Island. If you do not have access to a boat (rental available at the Wachapreague Marina),there are also several beautiful public beaches in the area:

Virginia's Eastern Shore, home to three notable beaches, is connected to the mainland via the 17.6-mile Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, which snakes between the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay.

Kiptopeke State Park on the Chesapekae Bay is a great place to watch migrating birds and enjoy the Eastern Shore Birding Festival every October.

Cape Charles Beach, with its shallow waters and no waves, is great for small children. Cape Charles is the Eastern Shore's southern-most town and offers public access onto the beach by two wooden walkovers located near the end of Tazewell and Randolph Avenues, as well as the Town's Fun Pier which also has a wooden walkover. The Pavilion and several park benches are constructed on the paved walkway.

The Peninsula's best-known attractions are the sister islands of Assateague and Chincoteague. A short causeway connects the two islands. While Chincoteague offers no actual beachfront, the town and island feature charming restaurants, shops, bicycle rentals, craft galleries and one-of-a-kind museums.

Be on the lookout for its most famous residents - the wild poinies that gained worldwide fame in Misty of Chincoteague, a book written by Marguerite Henry in 1947.

We hope you will enjoy this magical place as much as we do.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We have 3 children, a grandson and a Chocolate Lab. We live in Ocean City, Maryland and enjoy swimming, surfing, boating, kayaking and of course fishing! We hope you'll make some wonderful family memories and get some great fishing stories to tell from staying with us at the Drumslayer!

Why the Owner Chose Quinby, VA, USA:
My father used to fish out of Wachapreague in the 1950's; we took the children every summer to Quinby Harbor for an annual day of Flounder Fishing. We fell in love with the area and purchased our home on 2004.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love to boat to Hog and Paramore Islands and search for sand dollars and conch shells. We also love to rake for clams and dig for mussels. The fishing is fantastic and we have found some amazing treasures beach combing on the barrier island. Our Chocolate lab loves the water and has a wonderful time swimming and jumping from the dock in Quinby.
