Your Private Retreat …..
Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, family vacation, girls weekend, or just a quiet spot to enjoy the serenity of the Chesapeake Bay----
This is the beach house for you
With an open floor plan this a perfect spot to vacation with family or friends. The warm, lived-in feeling this house provides comes from years of our family truly loving this magical place we call “the shore house”.
Our family has been making memories here for 35 years. We have opened our home to you to share the tranquility of Crystal Beach. Situated at the end of a quiet dead end road, this bay front cottage awaits you. Come escape the crowds and enjoy the private beach right out your front door. Calm shallow waters of the bay make it perfect for launching a kayak or paddle board and for young children to play. Bring your boat or rent one in town. There is a public launch available blocks of the house.
We love the remote feeling this cottage has though it is just a few miles from the charming historic town of Onancock. With its artisans feel, Onancock offers restaurants, galleries, antique shops, bakery, movie theater, boutiques, and quiet streets to stroll.
We invite you to come experience the magic of the shore.

About Leslie Baltimore
Build in 1911 and moved from Accomack to Crystal Beach in 1946, Mary and Moe Moran bought this little cottage in 1979. Then it was a 1 room cottage with a small attic and wrap around porches. Located just an hour and a half away from their Virginia Beach home, it was the perfect getaway for them and their three children. After being damaged during hurricane Floyd in 1999, the cottage was raised onto pilings and remodeled. Though most of the original structure is still used. Over the years, the three Moran children have each had children of their own. These three generations have gathered each summer for 'Moran's Cousins Camp'. We come from Virginia Beach, Richmond and Ohio to fish, crab, kayak, swim, and reconnect as a family. Many happy memories have been made here.

Why Leslie Baltimore chose Onancock
The Eastern Shore is still an unrealized jewel for the masses. A few of us have figured out that it is a paradise without the crowds--a peaceful getaway.
What makes this Cottage unique
The views from every window in the house tell the story of why we love Crystal Beach. It is so peaceful and beautiful.

My daughter and I stayed here for Mother’s Day weekend and had a great time. The house is gorgeous and well equipped with anything you need. Leslie was a fantastic host and quick to help you with anything you may need. The little town of Onancock was picturesque with cute shops and great dining. We can’t wait to go back soon.
Fantastic place for great family memories. Can’t say enough about how wonderful this place is.
So glad your family enjoyed your time at the cottage. It was great having such awesome guests. Thanks for taking such good care of our home. Hope to see you again.
Quiet, beautiful , Serene
We went to get away from the push and pull of urban life and we had a wonderful time! Full experience of the sun rise and set on the Bay. The canoeing was great. It was a great place to recharge. Leslie is a gracious hostess and steward of this great resource.
Can't say enough!
We spent a weekend at this property to get away from the busyness of life. We had a wonderful time relaxing on the deck and watching the tide come and go. We did not see another person for two days!
The beach house is spacious and cozy at the same time. The kitchen has all the necessities to make meals. The views from every window are incredible.
I look forward to coming back someday!
Our Favorite Home Away
Our second trip to Leslie's place was even more amazing! This time we were able to do some crabbing, exploring and enjoy the beautiful weather. One of our favorite things to do was watching the bald eagle fly over the cottage all weekend (I think he was waiting for some handouts)! Leslie was so accommodating and helpful as always and we truly appreciate her sharing her beautiful home with us!

A family treasure, great home, nice views, adorable beach, and all the rooms had their own character
Great vacation home. We had the the last of Hurrican Harvey so it rained and was cloudy the entire time, but it was still better then being in NOVA weekend traffic. Close to Chincotrague and Assateague for the day. Everything you could think of is at the house down to bandaids. Great for a large family or just a couple. Thanks for sharing your family treasure with us 🦀
Hang Glide Virginia is located in Onancock. Antiquing, art galleries, boutiques, and restaurants are plentiful. Corner Bakery is a must for the doughnut lovers.
