Located in the historic district of Cape Charles, Randolph House is a beautifully decorated beach cottage. Built in 1898 this 100+ year old home comfortably accommodates up to 14 people with three private bedrooms, a large dining room, and laundry room, eat in kitchen, and two family rooms. The Star-Fish Bedroom features a four poster queen size bed, cable TV, VCR and DVD player. The Sand-Dollar Bedroom includes an antique double bed with pull out trundle bed, cable TV and DVD player. The Seashell bedroom sleeps 6 with one single bunk and pull out trundle bed and a single over full bunk bed. This room also includes cable TV and a video game system. The upstairs family room serves as a fourth bedroom with a pull out double bed, cable TV, and DVD/VCR player; an additional pull out single bed is located in the first floor family room.

Painted and professionally decorated with a blue and white theme this quaint beach cottage offers all the modern amenities needed to enjoy your stay. The game room is stocked with puzzles, games and a vintage poker table and there are two bicycles for use as well as beach chairs, beach umbrellas and an expansive library of books as well as DVD and VCR movies.

The house is located a short five blocks to a beautiful sandy beach where you can stretch out and enjoy the sun. Around the corner is Cape Charles’ historic main street with quaint shops, restaurants, upscale boutiques and a coffee shop.

Golf on Jack Nicholas and Arnold Palmer signature courses, take a fishing trip and experience some of the best fishing on the East Coast or take a self guided walking tour of homes dating from 1883 - 1920. Stroll along the beach and take in the most amazing sunset at the town pier or walk/bike throughout the entire town on safe quiet streets. Make sure to take a day trip up the peninsula to visit local wineries, as well as historic homes and plantations.

Cape Charles has an inexplicable charm and is a short drive to historic Williamsburg, Busch Gardens, Virginia Beach, downtown Norfolk, and is only a few hours to Ocean City MD, Annapolis MD and Washington DC.

About The Owner

We are a beach loving family who love to spend time on the Eastern Shore of VA

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why The Owner chose Cape Charles

We are located just 25 minutes from Virginia Beach (via the Bay Bridge Tunnel) yet most Virginian's have no idea where Cape Charles is. We like it that way since it means that even during the month of July when the beaches are packed with people we can stretch out and enjoy the sun.

What makes this cottage unique

In Cape Charles you are certain to have a truly RELAXING and affordable beach vacation. Stretch out on our clean sandy beach, walk to shops and restaurants where you will never have to wait in line.

Cape Charles has one of the largest concentrations of late-Victorian and turn-of-the-century buildings on the East Coast, with most of it's structures built between 1885 and 1920. The entire town is designated as a Historic District on the Virginia Landmarks Register and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family loved the Randolph House! It was exactly what we expected. I love older houses, I would love to live in one just like this one! We loved the Catholic church across the street, it was amazing and we loved the music it chimed on the hour. We enjoyed our visit to Cape Charles and to Virgina Beach! Thanks for letting us enjoy your home!

Great house ... poor rental agency

  • 2 of 5
We loved the house, but the service was terrible. Things that were advertised were not there or were not working and renovations were in progress on the back of the house. The refrigerator failed on the first day and wasted a week's worth of food. This was not their fault, but no one returned my calls that evening and there was little urgency even the next day as we tried to keep our remaining food in coolers. When our agent brought a refrigerator, he had no one to install it, so my Dad and I helped bring it in and then completed the installation and set-up. The agent apologized profusely and said that he would "take care of us". Well, two months later, and after numerous phone calls, I received a reimbursement for less than half of the token amount that the agency said they would provide. For an agency to give so many outward signs that it is a professional rental agency managing a lot of great properties, it was very surprising to have such poor service.

Owner's Response: We are located in a rural area and although we react quickly, the stores here do not. I made a 2.5 hour round trip to buy a refrigerator. When I said I had to find someone to install it, the guest and his father offered to help. We also offered to pay for their food and were told they would keep it in their coolers, that all they lost was their ice cream.
We refund security deposits within 2 weeks of check out. Checkout was June 29 and the check was mailed on July 12 and was cleared from our bank on July 29. We sent the additional refund out on August 12, 2014.
The work in the backyard was out of our control. An outdoor shower was being installed and the guests were able to use it while they were there.
We understood when their payment was late and we let them check in much earlier than the 4:00PM check in to accommodate their family.
We understand that the family was annoyed but we did try to make it right as quickly as possible.

The Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing house. The owners have gone out of their way to make sure anything and everything you could need are available. The online pictures do not do it justice! The house was super clean and the property management company handled everything flawlessly. We rode the bikes the owners had in the storage shed, used the beach chairs, umbrellas etc. The kids told us we had to come back next year! Thank you for making this our most memorable vacation ever

Making memories the old fashion way!

  • 4 of 5
My extended family of 12 was very comfortable here! The house is a well kept, decorated, updated, old beauty! It has plenty of comfy beds and tv's for game playing and watching! A short drive to the beach was necessary due to all our chairs and toys, but there was plenty of free parking! The kids really enjoyed the playground in Central Park, the beach and all the board games provided by the owner. The adults were greatful for the low key surf and shallow water that made for relaxing days at the beach with little ones. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation on the beach, getting lost in a good beach read and hiding from the world, you will love Cape Charles and this vacation house. After you've recharged and you're ready to join reality again, Virginia Beach, Busch Gardens and Williamsburg are only a beautiful Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel drive away! We enjoyed our Randolph House stay it's a great house!

Charming and Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at The Randolph House for a nice weekend in March. We loved it. Our dogs also enjoyed the house. There is plenty of room for kids also. We have three and they loved the bunk room. Looking to head over across the Bay Bridge again soon and will be choosing this home again.

Charming and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5
The Randolph house was a great place for my family and I to enjoy time together and relax. It had everything you needed for your day to day family needs. All you really need are your clothes and toiletries! The owners have provided so many items so you can enjoy the beach, get about town, as well as all your kitchen needs! The clean and calm beach is perfect for families with little ones. We look forward to visiting Cape Charles again!

You have a lovely, very comfortable home. We enjoyed being able to walk to the stores and restaurants, to Central Park, to the Cape Charles museum and to the beach. It was a very relaxing weekend for us and our 3-year old.
