Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 1-11)

Eagle's View, our 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath waterfront house faces the Assateague Channel with a stunning view of Assateague Island, the gorgeous Assateague Lighthouse and wildlife refuge. There are three levels of waterfront outdoor living with our private lighted dock, screened porch, open-air deck and third floor intimate balcony. Adirondack chairs and dining table sets provide plenty of seating for your delicious fresh seafood feasts; a glider on the dock for relaxing and dreaming; a steel-framed hammock on the screened porch is ideal for reading and snoozing! The bright and spacious great room with soaring ceiling overlooks the water and marshes, with the refuge and lighthouse as a backdrop. Two queen master bedroom suites make the home perfect for multi-generational guests. The third floor loft (with water view) is a wonderful respite for kids with their own TV, VCR and DVD library plus board games and puzzles. From the loft a hallway leads to two more bedrooms (two twins in each) and a large shared bath. The nautically-themed bedroom has terrific water views down the Channel to the Ocean Inlet. A dramatic catwalk from the loft leads you to a waterfront balcony where you will enjoy the spectacular view.

The kitchen is fully equipped to provide for all cooking needs with everything from coffee bean grinder, ice cream maker, Kitchenaid mixer to stainless steel crab steamer. We also provide crabbing equipment. The laundry with front-loading washer and dryer is conveniently located near the master bedrooms. There is a powder room off the great room. Master bedrooms have TVs; 2 flat screen TVs are also in the sitting rooms. WIFI throughout. We enjoy watching the wild ponies grazing below the lighthouse, as well as star-gazing and bird-watching, so we provide our guests with the use of our scope.

Relax on the glider on our dock and gaze at the lighthouse, or lose yourself in a good book! Our deck seats 10 to 12 for great seafood dinners off the gas grill, out of the crab steamer or carried out from the many great seafood eateries. Our plentiful video/DVD library provides hours of movie viewing while snuggled up with loved ones on the two couches in the great room. Greet the mornings while watching the sunrise over Assateague Island; you will see and hear the marshes come alive with marsh birds, herons, egrets, turtles, etc. Glimpse the occasional bald eagle soaring overhead, on the way to his/her nest on Assateague. Photograph wading birds and water fowl right from our deck. Vacations at Eagle's View in spring and fall provide the opportunity to view many more species of birds as they travel on the Atlantic Migratory Flyway over Assateague and Chincoteague. When the snow geese fly overhead in late fall, it will take your breath away! End your day with a late evening glass of wine on the deck or balcony and listen for the occasional owl hooting, whippoorwill call or pony whinnying across the Channel. Be mesmerized by the sound of the crashing surf on the Atlantic beachfront!

We have decorated Eagle's View with art from local artists, our photographs, decoys, nautical maps and real antique anchors, to add to the seaside feeling. Our collection of antiques includes oyster plates, faux scrimshaw, shells, decoys and nautical memorabilia. The furnishings are high-quality but comfortable and inviting, making our guests feel welcomed and relaxed in a bright and airy setting.

The quiet location on Little Piney Island, on the Eastside of Chincoteague Island is private yet not remote. We are close to everything! Bike to Main Street or Maddox Blvd. for shops, restaurants, the Island Creamery, the Sea Star Cafe for great sandwiches, carry-out food shops, miniature golf, bumper boats, etc., or to visit the two museums on the way to Assateague. There are no through streets and no commerce on our little island-neighborhood, so there is safe biking for little ones and walking for all. The almost constant ocean breeze is a refreshing delight which really deters the mosquitos. This Eastside location is ideal to access:

~ the bridge to Assateague

~the Wildlife Refuge

~the Visitor Centers

~the Atlantic Ocean beachfront

~restaurants and shops

~kayaking

~fishing, tennis and the playground at Memorial Park

~public boat ramps

~bike, scooter and kayak rentals

~kayaking down the Channel to Etta's Restaurant for dinner

~great photo opportunities of the Lighthouse and water birds

~birdwatching

Keywords: Waterfront home with fantastic views of the Assateague Channel, Lighthouse and Wildlife Refuge. Enjoy the waterfront from our private, lighted dock~~~catch crabs for your dinner, read a book on the glider, kayak over to Assateague for close-up viewing of the wild ponies. Relax, refresh, recharge!

About Karen Lowe

We live in the heart of Hunt Country in Middleburg, Virginia, on our small farm where we raise Christmas trees, herbs, horses and cows. We love these Blue Ridge Mountains but we also love the ocean and this unique island. Rick is a Realtor, with a Middleburg brokerage specializing in rural properties here in Loudoun County. Karen runs her small gourmet food company from the farm. Together we raise Christmas trees and open our farm to customers who come back year after year for hayrides, hiking on the farm and cutting down their Christmas trees. We also run a vacation guest cottage on our farm called The Hunt Box which is filled with antiques. We've always had horses for our children who showed in the Hunter/Jumper circuit; now our grandchildren are learning to ride as well. We love to relax and read, besides kayaking, antiquing, photography, travel, birdwatching and gardening. We are active in local environmental groups.

Karen Lowe purchased this house in 2001

Why Karen Lowe chose Eastern Shore

We vacationed here with our children for years and fell in love with the island! It is quiet, natural and family oriented, unlike many other beach resort areas. We love the educational opportunities and programs that are provided on Assateague, as well as the natural beachfront, wildlife refuge and all the hiking and biking trails. We love to kayak in such a natural setting. We have enjoyed meeting many talented artists and photographers on the island, as well as interesting shop owners. We find it a great source for the enjoyment of fresh seafood. Our children grew up reading 'Misty of Chincoteague' so we enjoy coming down to watch the Saltwater Cowboys in the Spring and Fall Pony Roundups as well as the Annual Pony Roundup, Pony Swim and Auction. The Volunteer Fire Department puts on a great carnival every July, which is great fun!

What makes this house unique

Incredible 180 degree waterview! The private dock, deck, screened porch and third floor balcony provide hours of relaxation and wildlife viewing. Crabbing from our dock provides a great dinner. We appreciate that Little Piney Island has no commerce and no through traffic, so it remains quiet, yet is convenient to everything. We love to kayak through the marshes and over to Assateague Island, and our dock is perfect for it. Star-gazing from the deck in this area with so little light pollution is excellent. Relaxing on the deck or balcony in the evening and hearing the Atlantic Ocean waves crashing on the beach on Assateague is so peaceful and rejuvenating.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time. Very nice movie collection!



House has a beautiful view and made us feel right at home. The addition of crab pots for guests would be great for the future.



[We took their suggestion and now provide 2 crab pots, which are the traps for catching crabs, for our guests to use.]

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review! It truly makes us happy to share our special place, Eagle's View, with other families. Our view of the lighthouse and wildlife refuge mesmerizes us, and always brings me peace. I do hope your grandchildren got to see the wild ponies on Assateague with the use of the scope and tripod we provide to our guests, and I hope that YOU got to relax on that new bench down on the dock right at the water's edge. The crab traps on the screened porch are one of the favorite amenities we provide our guests and it saves guests from having to buy them just to use for a week or a weekend. Glad your family got to catch some of the early season crabs! You are always welcome back at Eagle's View. Karen and Rick Lowe, Owners

Owner's Response: We are so glad that your family chooses our Eagle's View for return visits! Actually, we have many returning guests each summer which pleases us so much. You must have stored up so many memories that you think of Eagle's View as your vacation spot "for decades," although our house is only 16 years old. Thank you for choosing Eagle's View as your home away from home. We welcome you always!

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

First, you are being very well served by Stephanie Taylor and Eastern Shore Retreats. Very good customer service.

The location is perfect. Being on Piney Island, unless you are staying out there, there is NO traffic or car noise at all. Not only a beautiful view but no boat noise at all.

We bring bikes and kayaks along with a power boat that we dock at close by East Side Rentals. Flounder Fishing is good.

This will be the third year our family has stayed here, I hope it continues as a family annual tradition.

Thank you for all you provide. John Hanna

Owner's Response: John~~~ I didn't see this review before now, but I want to thank you! We are so glad that you enjoy our home and the spectacular view as much as we do. You have joined the list of numerous returning guests, and we welcome you! We agree with you that our Property Manager, Stephanie Taylor, is fantastic; we had been with two other companies before finding Stephanie's company, (Eastern Shore Retreats), and they simply could NOT compare to her service and care of our guests. As a matter of fact, Stephanie let me know that you had already booked our house for 2017, even before you arrived this year!!! Thank you so much for choosing Eagle's View. It truly brings us joy to share our wonderful vacation home with others! It is our hope that families make lots of lifetime memories at Eagle's View!

Just came home from another great week at chincoteague and stay at eagles view. The house is well stocked and has a great location. We ate most meals on the deck, overlooking the great view. This is our second year staying at eagles view and I am sure we will be back.

Thanks for the great welcome gifts :)

Just like home very time

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at the house. We loved it so much the first time that this year when we went back to Chincoteague, we specically searched for Eagle's View again so we could stay there for the Memorial Day weekend. The owner is very responsive, so is the new management company. The house is well maintained, and the view is stunning, being right acorss from the light house with a roomy private dock. We again had a wonderful time, and our kids were already talking about going back even before we left. So I think we will see you again next year.

Thank you for your kind review; it truly makes us happy to know others have enjoyed our great view and well-stocked home as much as we enjoy it. Rick and I hope you will come back again! We'd love to host you anytime! ~~~Karen
