About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Relaxed is the word here. Cottage is located at Smith Beach approximately 15 minutes north of Cape Charles, VA. House is an easy, 150 foot walk from the beach. The cottage is around 1200 square feet and features a living room, large bedroom, 1 full and one half bath, sunroom with futon, and a large screened porch with water views that is perfect for entertaining or quiet hours. The cottage will sleep 4 adults comfortably or two adults and several children. The beach has long expanses for walking and swimming with a lot of nature to enjoy which you typically cannot see at large beaches (enjoy the pelicans, osprey, and bald eagles as well as numerous species of shorebirds, you might even see a deer swim in the bay!) Two excellent golf courses are 15 minutes away in Cape Charles. There is a boat ramp available for Smith Beach residents and guests and fishing is typically good and sometimes great. Charter fishing is available from Cape Charles and Wachapreague which offers inshore and deep sea trips. A number of good restaurants are close by and the Eastern Shore has many interesting places to visit - Onancock is about 45 minutes and Chincoteague/Assateague and Wallops Island are a little over an hour North. Mockhorn Island Wildlife Management Area is which is known for birding is also close by. Cycling, running and walking are extremely pleasant here with many options and low traffic.

This area is quiet and relaxing, there is a lot (or little if you like) to do but the stimulation comes from nature and fun not noise and crowds. There are sunsets.

Little piece of serenity

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for 4 nights. Calm bay waters on the beach. Very comfortable. Quiet neighbors. Fully stocked kitchen. Clean bathrooms. We were out on excursions most of our stay. I was a little worried since we had no way to contact the owner if anything went wrong (no Wi-Fi, cell service) but all went smoothly.

Thank you for sharing your little piece of serenity with us.

Wonderful location - a relaxing, quiet beach cottage, which allowed us to bring our pooch, too!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Weirwood! We had a nice relaxing week and loved the nearby location to Smith Beach. We also loved that we could bring our dog to the cottage and to the beach. One of the days we had the beach completely to ourselves! We had some issues with the water pressure in the only shower in the house - we think the shower needs to be upgraded. The bed was a bit uncomfortable and left us feeling stiff in the morning. The kitchen was fully stocked and had everything we needed to cook and steam crabs which was greatly appreciated! Neighbors were friendly and helpful. Overall, the cottage was clean, quiet, and in a great location.. thank you!!

Best place to get away fromit all

  • 5 of 5

We booked this lovely cottage as last stay of our 3 weeks’ vacation which included some days in Washington DC and a longer stay in Charlottesville with several hiking-trips in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Goal has been to relax the last week before the flight back home to Germany and that's exactly what we've got. Smith Beach indeed is away from it all. One small road along the beach with mostly small cottages on both sides. No restaurant, no bar, no shops, only us, the neighbors and the nature. If you want to have the beach if shared only sometimes with some neighbors, if you want to walk your dog or go jogging early in the morning and meet and greet neighbors here and there, if you want to walk miles along the beach and meet anyone, if you want to sit hours outside on the screened porch and watch the birds - that's the best place you can go to. We fell in love with this place even though we're usually need activities and new adventures day by day.

In the previous comments someone described the cottage as hidden gem and we agree. It's not new and not newly refurbished but exactly that's part of the story of this cottage and we liked it.

A small note nevertheless: dear owners, some new towels would not interfere with the great atmosphere of the cottage and dear travelers, you have to accept to organize yourself without closets but with drawer cabinets.

Last but not least, our heartfelt thanks to all the neighbors who welcomed us with open arms and supplied us with fresh vegetables from their garden. Our special thanks to Estelle and Gerry as they invited us to a dinner with their friends. Estelle, I will miss your dog Sunshine as companion for my daily walks. All of you are wonderful and we like to see you again!

A wonderful quiet place near the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay! Quiet neighborhood, nearly empty ocean beaches for miles, a cozy clean home, and pet friendly, we had a perfect time! We are excited to come back!

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Myself and Friends came to this area to pay our respects to our fallen comrade. The owner and neighbors of this beautiful area couldn't have been more accommodating. On top of that all, the area is absolutely beautiful and would highly recommend it if you really want to get away. Their is a lot to explore if you are the outdoors type and beach is right their to relax. Thank you to the owner and his neighbors for making our stay unforgettable.

Great cottage right by the bay

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time during our time at the cottage. There were four of us (two adults, two teens) plus our dog. There was plenty of room and it was actually bigger than I'd imagined it would be. It was clean and had lots of light. Especially liked the screened front porch.

The bay was just across the street and we all enjoyed swimming. The water was shallow enough that we could walk very far out and still be standing! For most of the time the beach was all ours. When others were there it still was never crowded like our beaches at home (NJ shore). Just peaceful and relaxing.

I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a quiet and pretty spot for vacation. We took some day trips, including to Onancock and to Chincoteague Island. Cape Charles was our favorite town to visit and we got to try several restaurants there, the best being The Shanty.

Warning: Nearby businesses in Cape Charles close early (plan on an early dinner) and we were disappointed when all the galleries were closed on Tuesdays.

We also had trouble finding a doctor when my son needed one. There is no nearby hospital or urgent care center. However, we were lucky to find Dr. Bice at the Bayview Community Health Center in Cheriton, and we filled a prescription at Rayfield's Pharmacy in Cape Charles. This is where I'd recommend to anyone needing a doctor while visiting.
