CHESAPEAKE BAY, SANDY BEACH, THE PURPLE COTTAGE

Cape Charles Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Two Bedrooms, Sleeps 2-5

On Virginia's pristine Eastern Shore, only 17 miles from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, this charming & private bayfront village will exceed all your vacation expectations. Sandy beach & swimming are only steps & unbelievable sunsets!! Away-from-it-all, yet not too far off the beaten path.

Area & Property Details, Purple Cottage: Charming and updated 2 bedroom cottage on the Chesapeake Bay, barely 10 miles from historic Cape Charles with its new & amazing Nicholas/Palmer Golf Courses. Only 17 miles from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, so convenient to Virginia Beach and yet a world away. Smith Beach is a unique, private family community with sandy beach and a community boat ramp and dock just steps from the purple cottage. Enjoy fishing, hiking, swimming, and just plain Relaxing--what a splendid idea!! Do Nothing for a real change of pace. A 3 mile car ride takes you to fine dining at the Eastville Inn. A pleasant 30-40 minute ride north will bring you to Onancock with its many art galleries, cultural events, and restaurants. A bit further north, find the famous Chincoteague ponies of Chincoteague and Assateague Islands.

Activities & Attractions: Boating of all types abounds. Trailer your own boat or jet-ski, wave runner, or load your kayaks on top of your car, and they will see a lot of use at Smith Beach. The community boat ramp (steps from the cottage) is at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and a creek area know as 'The Gulf.' So there is quiet water for novice and/or young kayakers/canoers. The fishing is unsurpassed!! Kiptopeke State Park is nearby for hiking, nature walks, birdwatching, etc. Shop and enjoy the casual to elegant dining options in nearby Cape Charles (10 miles south) or Onancock (30 miles north). Visit Chincoteague Island's (50 miles north) famous ponies and go on the nature walk and enjoy Chincoteague's abundance of tourist/souvenir shops and restaurants. As the eastern shore peninsula area is only 10 miles across & is between the Chesapeake and the ocean, the area is easily explored by car & scenic water/nature vistas are everywhere apparent.

Quiet Retreat

  • 4 of 5
The cottage looks exactly as presented here. Very clean and comfortable. It is a VERY rural location, which is what I wanted. I had the bay beach to myself almost every day. The water was surprisingly warm. I also enjoyed two trips to Chincoteague Island, which is about an hour away. It was a very relaxing trip for me.

What you see is really what you get

We had a wonderful time at the Purple cottage.
Everything was as expected : clean, comfy & quiet.
The private beach was perfect and just a few steps away from the house.
The locals there are very nice, they all wave and say hello to you.
It's an hour away from Virginia Beach.
You can rent without any worries.

We Will Be Back !

  • 5 of 5
We have just spent a wonderful week in the "Purple Cottage" 8/14/10 thru 8/21/10. Everything was as presented on the website. The cottage was clean and very comfortable for our family of three. Smith Beach is the perfect place to get away from it all and just relax. We spent a day in VA Beach which is about 1 1/2 away and a couple of trips to Chincoteague Beach which is also 1 1/2 away. Cape Charles also offered some excellent meals at "Kelly's Pub " along with the local coffee shop (awesome breakfast). Oh and I can't forget the sunsets they are amazing... it really is a great location and we are already making plans to return next year !

Wonderful, relaxing time

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week here. The cottage was very clean and just as described. It was quite a rural location, but just what we were looking for. We had plenty of peace and quiet, but also found several great restaurants and some good day trips. The beach was quiet and perfect for our toddler aged daughter. We left with many nice memories!

Get away from it all.

Thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Very peaceful and close to beach, but the Food Lion is only a few miles away - behind McDonalds - which has free wifi.
