About Christine

I'm Christine and my husband is John. We have 3 children Nicholas, Brooke and Jamie. We moved to Virginia Beach from New York 17 years ago. John has been an Electrician since the age of 16, had a business in New York and started a new business in Virginia Beach. Eleven years ago he was asked to do an electrical job in Cape Charles for a new home that was being built. Once he laid his eyes on that fishing pier that was it! That night he came home it was all he could talk about. Two days later we took a ride over with our fishing poles and spent the whole day there. We did some fishing, had lunch, browsed through the shops, walked around, looked at all the old houses and said some day we will have a house here! And here we are eleven years later, our dream came true.

Christine purchased this house in 2014

Why Christine chose Cape Charles

We looked at ALOT and I mean ALOT of homes for sale in Cape Charles. This one was one of the first that we looked at. We kept coming back to it but kept thinking there was something better like everyone does. But I'm so happy we choose this house. I love the fact that every bedroom has it own bathroom. The size of the bedrooms are very nice, so many houses had such small bedrooms. I like how open it is and the fact that it has a garage. Most homes here do not have a garage. After we put much sweat and hard work into it, it's just perfect for us!

What makes this house unique

We love the fact that this house is so close to the beach and just around the corner from the town it's just the perfect location. We did look at a few others that we liked but they were not as close to the beach or the town.

Great place in a great loacation.

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations in all ways. The owners were extremely helpful in answering our questions prior to arrival, the house is laid out wonderfully and very well kept. Amenities abound with toys and games, grills, smokers and indoor outdoor dining. The location is perfect, with everything within and easy walk. Would defiantly stay here again.

Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd year staying at The Lighthouse Inn and we plan to keep coming back! The house is very comfortable and has everything that you need and more! We love the convenience of being able to walk to Brown Dog for some ice cream or go shopping. The golf cart rental is always an added plus, too! You can tell the owners take great care in the home and in their guests experience, so we truly appreciated that! I highly recommend renting this house!

Great family fun

  • 5 of 5

Lighthouse was a perfect fit for our extended family trip to Cape Charles. The six grandchildren delighted in eating breakfast on the deck every morning and the large dining table inside was a great way to discuss the day ahead and where and when families were headed. The house was close to everything in town with the beach only 2 blocks away and nice big park about the same. And to the kids delight the ice cream shop was just around the corner.

The beach is big and clean and the shallow water perfect for pre schoolers.

Each of the 4 bedrooms had a bathroom plus a half bath off the family room.

The front porch is covered and several rocking chairs came in handy in the evening. The garage hosted many ping pong games among our son in laws and also had a foose ball table and a ton of beach items.

The owner Christine was very helpful including sending us some clothes accidentally left behind.

We loved our stay and highly recommend staying at the Lightnhouse with your family.

Tennis Courts are located in the center of town bordering the park on Madison Ave. If you love horses, you must visit Pfeiffer Riding Stables a 150-Acre waterfront farm just up the road. They offer one hour horse back riding tours for $40.00 Very well worth the trip!
