We had an amazing time here at the end of the summer, with perfect weather and hardly any neighbors around. The house is very homey and comfortable, with good beds, nice bathrooms, and a heavenly outdoor shower. It's got a nice big kitchen with everything a serious chef could need; we visited a bunch of farm stands along the way, and there are good seafood vendors nearby, as well as a great Food Lion. As nice as the house is inside, we really enjoyed the sweet amenities outdoors - fun excursions in the kayaks, cocktails on the Adirondack chairs watching some astonishing sunsets, chillin' in the hammock, breakfast at the picnic table under the shade of the oak tree...One morning, several pods of dolphins swam by, heading up the creek for their mullet breakfast - such a treat to see, and apparently a rarity!
My husband caught many crabs in the pots off the dock, as well as some nice croakers when we rented a little motorboat out of the nearby town of Wachapreague, where we spent the day on the water, hoping for flounder and exploring the remote barrier islands. Just wonderful.
We took a picnic to the beach at Assateague for sunrise one morning - hardly any people, many pelicans - the water temperature and waves of the Atlantic were mild and beautiful. To get there you drive by some gorgeous marshland and through the touristy but cute town of Chincoteague. Nice!
This part of the Eastern Shore of Chesapeake has long been our favorite - surrounded by nature, with a few picturesque small towns, rolling farmlands and beautiful water everywhere. Can't wait to return to this house and pretend that it's ours! The owners were extra nice and made the whole experience easy. We hope to get back there as often as we can!
