Overview

About the property

With 6 bedrooms this house easily accommodates a large party.

The Fishing Cottage is in a rural setting that takes full advantage of the Eastern Shore's natural beauty while only minutes from the charming town of Cape Charles with its eclectic shops and restaurants. It is close to beautiful beaches, fishing piers, marinas and boat ramps to launch that boat.

With 6 bedrooms the Fishing Cottage is perfect for larger parties. The firepit, corn hole game, hammock, screened porch, and barbeque grill in the roomy back yard are the perfect place to gather in the evening after a day on the water surrounding the scenic Eastern Shore.

For the fisherman the big yard provides plenty of room to park your boat in a secure location. The house is centrally located minutes from the boat ramps in Cape Charles, Kiptopeke and Oyster. There is a screened porch for morning coffee, satellite TV, fish cleaning station and a barbeque grill to cook that catch of the day.

The Fishing Cottage is located on a local farm with abundant wildlife and acres of corn, potatoes and soybeans. While enjoying sunsets from the screened porch you can watch the deer grazing in the surrounding fields. The farm located on Old Plantation Creek provides access for local watermen to the bounty of the Chesapeake Bay.

The charming Victorian town of Cape Charles is minutes away with its beautiful beaches, lovely old homes and fishing pier. The main street has quaint shops and eclectic dining with outdoor tables to enjoy the harbor view.

Beaches, boat docks, kayaking, birding, wildlife sanctuaries and the unspoiled barrier islands are all nearby.

There is a private airstrip on the farm if you wish to arrive by private plane. Should you wish to bring your own horse there are equestrian stables on the property as well.

Bounded on one side by the Chesapeake Bay and on the other side by the Atlantic Ocean the Eastern Shore of Virginia enjoys unparalleled coastal living beauty. This property takes full advantage of the natural beauty and tranquility of rural living that is the trademark of the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely awesome! We had 12 brothers and sisters in Christ stay here for a long fishing weekend. Some of us have been coming here for over 20 years staying at numerous places, however this one is the absolute best. So private and spacious, room for our boats, and 12 more people if we had known. Can't wait to come back next year!

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

As indicated in previous posts, it's an older house that is geared toward a guys fishing trip. It worked great for our needs, the house was clean, everything worked and there is plenty of parking. We had all the information we needed to access and use the house, thanks Merle!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

The house was EXACTLY as marketed, an old farmhouse on a working farm. Large, spacious rooms with lots of windows. Full working kitchen. Plenty of sleeping and living space, plus the outdoor area. The owners are wonderful, they were very responsive to every question we had and very welcoming to the area. Understand that this is an older house. The drier didn't work well, there was no dishwasher, and it's not "fancy." But it's not advertised that way, so it met our expectations perfectly. It was a perfect base for several families with children to use in heading to multiple beaches, parks, and activities around the Eastern Shore and VA Beach. I would definitely recommend it.

Great central location for a lower Eastern Shore of Virginia vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in an older home that was close to the main road but far enough away that the noise and busyness was not an issue. AC was perfect

Great Find

  • 5 of 5

I do not usually write reviews, but I always read what others write. I was not disappointed! This was a great find. Everything that you would need was provided. Exceptionally clean, close to the boat ramp and grocery store. The gran children loved it. The hospitality by owners and neighbors was truly great. The fishing trip is an annual event for my family and I will definitely book again. Thank you for a great stay.
