Overview

About the property

Steps away from the water, friendly town

The Parsonage was built in 1836 and was restored between 2001 and 2010. The house has a large front porch with rockers and a table for coffee or lunch. There are three bedrooms on the second level. The master bedroom has a queen bed with en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. Guest room#1 has a queen bed with private sink that opens into a shared bathroom. Guestroom#2 (Loft) has a sleep number full sized bed with shared bathroom. The large guest bathroom includes walk-in shower and claw foot soaking tub. A washer and dryer are in a separate room.

The main level of the house includes a parlor a game room with television, couch and foosball table, puzzles and books. The kitchen is an open plan with dining room and sun room. There is also a bathroom with a shower on the main living level.

The house was renovated following a fire so everything is new. Bathrooms are all ceramic tile and the kitchen has granite counter tops with an eat in table and a built in bar for gathering around. The kitchen contains everything you will need including basic pantry items. Back deck has a grill and two sheds that contain bikes for your use to get around town even though everything is in walking distance.

The Wharf is only steps away where you can rent kayaks, bikes, fish or crab from the dock or take the ferry to visit Tangier Island for the day. There is a public boat ramp at the same location. If you have a boat there is so much to explore. Onancock Creek is about 4 miles long and opens up into the Chesapeake Bay. The area is pristine with secluded beaches all up and down the coast.

If the ocean is your thing, Assateague National Park is about a 35 minute drive to the North. It is the closest beach with surf and easy parking. The town of Chincoteague is a fun day trip.

The town of Onancock has a charm all its own. It has a small town feel where your kids can walk down the street and go fishing and you don't have to worry about them.

About Kathi Williams

We have lived in Northern Virginia for 35 years. Onancock is our weekend getaway. We spent nearly 10 years (of weekends) renovating the house after a fire. The house originally belonged to the historic Cokesbury Church and was the home of the minister. We got caught up in the story and decided to renovate instead of tearing it down. It contains the original heart pine floors in the master bedroom and the beams on the main floor are original. We filled it with some our favorite things, some antiques, some new furniture and just love coming here.

Kathi Williams purchased this house in 2001

Why Kathi Williams chose Eastern Shore

It is a wonderful getaway where you can let your hair down and relax! We love to cycle, kayak and boat so this was the perfect place for us.

What makes this house unique

You can sit on the front porch in a rocking chair and watch the fishing boats go up and down the creek while you drink your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail. Whether you are a friend or a stranger, neighbors wave as they walk by. In the summer, you can buy fresh fish right across the street. There is also a farmer's market on Saturdays where you can purchase fresh picked produce and some local seafood. We love that the restaurants are only steps away. The sunsets are beautiful sitting on the deck at Mallards Restaurant.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

When people said that the pictures don't do this house justice they were right! This house is full of charm & we loved going around the house looking at all of the antiques & beach decorations. The town is very quiet & the owners had great recommendations on where to eat & where to go on our little trip. Note to future guests- Blarney's & Mallard's are both worth a try! We stayed here while in the area to go see the Chincoteague Pony Swim, it was about 30 mins away but the drive was nice & we liked staying away from all the tourist craziness. I will definitely recommend this house to all of my friends & family. Thank you again Kathi for all of your help!

An Amazing Property!!!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, the double doors at the front were so welcoming. The house was beautifully restored and decorated with period pieces. My husband and I wandered around the house and looked at all of the rooms. The kitchen was well-stocked and well-maintained. The beds were super comfortable--I think I had the best night's sleep in a long time. The two showers were beautiful, but I loved the claw foot tub! The back yard was cozy and fenced in. I wish I had brought my puppies! The location was quiet, but close to town and the water. We ate at local restaurants and toured the shops. We also took the ferry to Tangier Island. I have already recommended this property to my friends--and I hope that we can return soon! Kathi was very responsive and accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful trip!

Good location for walking around town. It was a really comfortable home. (The internet was a bit slow but our friend said this is not uncommon in Onancock.) Would definitely stay again/recommend to friends.

Wow! Great location that feels like coming home.

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to describe the experience of staying here. From check in to check out it felt like we was coming to our home. The location is in a quiet corner that one feels like they have no neighbors. In short, it is an amazing place to stay. Thank you for opening your home to ours.

Magnificent Home - Beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

Upon opening the doors of "The Parsonage" you are in awe! The wood craftsmanship is beautiful. The house is decorated splendidly and each room is lovely. The kitchen is fabulous with great pots, pans, appliances, cutlery and dishes etc.! The bedrooms are large/so comfy and the bathrooms/showers are perfect! Make sure to sit a bit on the porch and say "hi" to those who walk by. This is a stunning home and welcoming town! The owners are very nice and have thought of everything! Truly a special experience.

Historic Onancock is a lovely small town that is family friendly. Onancock Wharf is steps from the house where you can rent a kayak, fish or launch a boat at the public boat ramp. The Chesapeake Bay is a 4 mile paddle with beaches along the way. The town hosts artists and galleries, shops, antiques and wonderful restaurants. If you like to cycle, the Eastern Shore is flat and fun to cycle short or long distances. Waterfront is found at the end of many roads on this small peninsula. The Bay is on one side and the ocean is on the other side. There is a movie theater in town and a playhouse featuring live performances.
