The best!

We loved staying at Black Dog Shores! We enjoyed the beach, kayaking, shell hunting, kite flying, playing games, doing jigsaws, and so much more!

4 days of rain

  • 5 of 5

...but a fabulous outdoor shower and hammock (for when it dried a bit). This cottage was clean, and peaceful, and felt like the exact spot I needed to be secluded in for a few days. Though it rained my entire visit, and couldn't enjoy the beach or outdoors, it was a cozy place and so good for the soul!

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days here over Easter 2017. The owners were great to deal with, with clear arrangements and directions plus a bottle of wine in the fridge on our arrival! Cottage is exactly as described, but with extras such as spices and kitchen supplies, games, books and puzzles. We had a fun time visiting nearby Cape Charles, exploring the State Park and swimming from the beach, even though it was April. The sunsets were amazing and we look forward to returning some day.

Serenity by the Shore

  • 5 of 5

We had the greatest time on our mini vacation! The only downside was having to leave on the last day.

We immediately felt welcomed and enjoyed every moment of our stay. The cottage was absolutely perfect and contained everything we needed and wanted. Besides being located in a stunningly beautiful location, the property was so inviting and felt like a home away from home. From the bottle of wine lovingly left for us by the owner, to the hammock, more than adequately stocked kitchen, books, board games, picnic table overlooking the bay, binoculars, grill, etc...we couldn't have asked for more!

I could go on and on about how well equipped the kitchen was. We made our favorite dishes together and thoroughly enjoyed only venturing out to buy fresh seafood from Tim's Seafood in Exmore (great recommendation from owner).

The glorious sunsets were a definite group favorite. Even on the coldest, windiest night we spent a lot of time soaking up the beautiful sight that then made way for a spectacular, starry sky. There is nothing like laying in the hammock taking in the celestial beauty above!

Low tide was our other favorite time to be outside. It was so much fun to walk way out in the bay on the sandbars. Being the end of October, the water was kind of chilly but it didn't stop us from venturing out to the farthest sandbar.

The house being dog friendly was another major plus. Our little old curly lady, Jazz, gave the vacation her highest rating of four paws up! We spent hours bird watching together and were thrilled to see bald eagles. The second time we spotted them I made a mad dash for the binoculars (another great amenity) and we all got to catch a close up view.

We can't thank you enough for opening your special place up to us. It truly was one of the best vacations ever!

We can't wait to visit this little corner of peaceful paradise again.
