Cape Charles House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

The Heron House is located in Cape Charles on Virginia's charming Eastern Shore. The house is situated only five blocks from one-half mile of public beach along the Chesapeake Bay. A beautiful front porch graces this 1920s house. Perfect for a peaceful, early morning coffee, or to catch a cool evening breeze. Inside, the owners lovingly decorated and furnished the rustic interior. Antiques eclectically mix with modern furniture to create a cozy atmosphere perfect for family and friends. The Heron House has two bedrooms (sleeps 5), large dining room (seats 6), eat-in kitchen (seats 4) and one and a half bathrooms. A landscaped patio with dining for 6 is the centerpiece of a fenced backyard. The Heron House is available for daily (2 night minimum), weekly or monthly rental all year long.

Cape Charles and the Eastern Shore are wonderful to explore. Sporting enthusiasts can golf, kayak, or go horseback riding or bird watching nearby. Boating and fishing are available from the Cape Charles Harbor. Walk to beach, restaurants, shops, galleries, spa, fitness center, library, and Central Park.

With some much to do and see on the Eastern Shore, come and spend a week or month at the charming Heron House and take in the best Virginia has to offer.

Charming and Cozy!

  • 4 of 5

The home is very charming with a vintage/modern mixed feel to it. We loved the setup and how very well the kitchen was stocked with most of the necessities/gadgets etc. It is a decent walking distance from the beach and stores/restaurants. We stayed for a weekend and can definitely see ourselves going back for longer time.

I only wish that the bicycles had air in the tires. The pump did not seem to work. We would've loved to travel around the town on them

Hurricane Matthew Didn't Ruin our Week-end

  • 5 of 5

Heron House was very comfortable & well located within walking distance or a short bike ride of most everything. The house was well appointed & had lots of charm. I was impressed by the size of the eat in kitchen & the over-sized dining room. Halfway through the week-end we encountered the tail end of a hurricane but Heron House kept us safe, warm & dry. Cape Charles & Heron House was delightful despite the weather!

Just as the description said.

  • 4 of 5

I have rented various properties in different locations through VRBO. This house was the best with supplies. This may seem trivial but there was hand soap at every sink, plenty of ice cubes ready in trays( sure an ice maker would be nice). Well stocked kitchen. This historical home was charming. Thankfully they upgraded with air conditioning, Internet, & cable tv. Impressed with Chesapeake Properties that managed the reservation.

My first visit to Cape Charles. It was so quaint. Chesapeake Bay beach is great. I didn't have as much time to enjoy it, as I was there for a golf tournament at Bay Creek Resort. We ate at Oyster Farm Eatery & Shanty's. Would have eaten at Hook u Up, but they only serve dinner Tuesday- Friday.

If this is peak summer season, I will say it is very low key. Some businesses are only open Wednesdays - Saturdays. There are no major brand restaurants or stores in the area. Frankly, I enjoyed that.

Awesome Place to stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Heron house was great!!! It was warm, clean,and inviting.

It had everything you could ask for. It was definitely home away from home.

My family and I will absolutely will stay here again.

The home was exactly how it was described. The owner and staff were very attentive and answered all of my questions.

They kept in contact with me the whole way & fulfilled all of my requests.

I will recommend to family and friends any day of the week. We enjoyed it so much we hated to leave.

Thanks a bunch.

Pretty, well-maintained house

  • 4 of 5

The house is charming and on a pleasant side street about a half-mile from the beach and 2 blocks from the central park and playground, both of which are very nice. On some Saturday nights in the summer, the town hosts live-music (and margaritas!) in the central park, which we happened up by lucky accident. Our neighbors were friendly and welcoming. The house and yard were pretty, clean, and well-kept. Only (tiny) complaint--the bed pillows were a little too high for us.
