Overview

Onancock House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, Limit of 8 adults with or without children

Wonderful waterfront home on a hill overlooking Onancock Creek, a short 10-min boat ride to the Chesapeake Bay. Golf just 8 miles south. The property is located within walking distance of downtown Onancock, yet is very quiet & private at the same time.

Onancock has multiple fine restaurants, art galleries, live AND movie theaters, great bakery, ice cream shop, general store, fab clothing/gift stores, boating, kayaking, exploration of rich history and much more! It was voted

A true home away from home. Comfortable, casual, and clean. Bring your boat for day excursions on the Chesapeake Bay or stay on land and enjoy the many activities & sight-seeing in the area. This is in a low-key neighborhood, so we want folks who are looking to have a fun and relaxing time rather than a 'party-hardy' experience. Master bath has sunken jacuzzi tub. W/D. All appliances. Satellite TV with all movie channels in Great Room and 2 bedrooms. Free wi-fi access, as well as free local and LD OUTGOING calls (continental USA.) [NOTE: PLEASE click on MORE DETAIL (in blue) below & SEE SPECIAL NOTES re: pricing and quotes!!]

Downtown Onancock: The Town of Onancock is within walking distance and has many fine shops, restaurants, art galleries, a garden shop, post office, movie theater, live theater, churches, a boat ramp, a unique shop for women with natural fiber clothes and gifts, another unique shop with clothes and gifts; and a great coffee shop in a restored old bank building.

You will not be sorry in choosing this wonderful location! It is the best the Eastern Shore has to offer!

Beautiful home and incredible sunsets!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week here for a family reunion. Dorothy is such a pleasure to deal with when booking. The house is modern and beautiful and has everything one could want. The sunsets are to die for, and no matter what we were doing, whether antiquing in town or riding bikes or kayaking, we ALWAYS made sure we were back in time to set up some chairs and enjoy the peace and tranquility while enjoying the most spectacular sunsets anywhere. As repeat customers, we always love returning to Onancock and this wonderful home away from home!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
You will be astounded as you walk into the front door of this SPACIOUS, well kept home right on the banks of Onancock Creek. Creek is a relative term. It is a large body of water. You can swim at the dock. We caught oodles of blue crab right off the dock along with three sting rays (you can't eat those). The house is as advertised and more. This was the best combine value and quality we have stayed in of the many homes we have rented from HomeAway. The owner is just wonderful to work with and so gracious. You will not believe the layout of this home for a family. You will not regret renting this house. You can take easy walks each night in the beautiful neighborhood. Chincoteague Island is 24 miles away. Ocean flounder fishing is 8 miles away in Wachapreague at Captain Zed's; inexpensive fishing boat rental.

Incredible home and community!

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation and this home and Onancock provided all that and more. The house was better than even the photos indicate, both roomy and comfortable with all amenities needed. The views were fantastic and the local residents and business owners very friendly. The restaurants are great too. Dorothy was a pleasure to deal with,following up to ensure all was going well during our stay. We had 3 generations and all of us, adults, teens and grandchild all had a fantastic time fishing crabbing and just enjoying the area. Don't miss this gem on the eastern shore! We're looking forward to returning and highly recommend this property and owner.

Peaceful Outdoors, modern indoors

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Dorothy's beautiful home was a much needed getaway and also a good way to catch up with family at the same time. Dorothy was responsive to all our needs / questions before we arrived there as well as during our stay there. The home itself has a breathtaking view of the water and is spacious and clean. The kitchen was fully equipped and was a pleasure to work in, got some pointers on how to store stuff looking/using their pantry ! The home is close to stores but still secluded and tucked away. We could just walk over to the canoe place which was a big plus with the kids. Chincoteague beach was nearby and was fun. All in all an ideal place to unwind and relax. Would highly recommend to small families with kids.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
This is such a beautiful home inside and out. Sitting at the mouth of Onancock Creek we were fascinated with the boats that came in and out and enjoyed watching the sunsets from every room. You almost forget that you are in a neighborhood but it is just a short walk into town where there is a market on Saturdays with fresh organic veggies etc.
The owner went out of her way to make sure all our needs were met and that everything was to our liking. We loved the casual and comfortable living room with the several different seating areas. The choice of a screened in porch or an open one is nice.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family.

Notes:
Although in the house or at dock you will FEEL like you have NO neighbors, we ask you be respectful that you do and not create disturbances that would cause them to wish you weren't there. Neighbors are far enough away that you can actually be noisy within the house without disturbing anyone, and can certainly enjoy normal play, laughter, playing games, etc. outside. Just please….. no loud party-screaming-yelling-obnoxious type activities. Thanks! You may smoke on the porch or outside only and must clean all cigarette mess up yourself. Deep water dock: Bring your motor or sailboat! You can use the left dock to keep boat in water. $5/day Public Boat Ramp just 2 blocks away. Explore the Chesapeake Bay! No more than 4 vehicles per rental (excluding boats.) No events please. We will provide minimal amenities such as 2 rolls of paper towels, trash bags, 2 rolls of toilet tissue per bathroom, shampoo, liquid hand soap, liquid bath/body wash, a blow-dryer, etc.
