You'll Love Our Nature: The Eastern Shore is a 75 mile peninsula comfortably nestled between the Atlantic Ocean & the Chesapeake Bay. Uninhabited Barrier Islands protect the Seaside coast from the power of the ocean. Winding ribbons of Beach line the Bayside coast, including the wide stretches of sand at Eagle's Rest. This section of the coast is locally known as 'The Sand Hills'. Pre-historic sand dunes over 60 feet high create unique ecosystems and spectacular views so special that they inspired the creation of the Savage Neck Dunes Natural Area Preserve, a 295 acre refuge for migratory songbirds, endangered Northeastern Tiger Beetles, and of course the Ospreys & Eagles that give our house it's name.
There is always an adventure to be found at Eagle's Rest. Have kayaks or paddle boards delivered to the beach and go explore the coast & creeks to the North. Tie on your hiking shoes and explore the otherworldly landscapes of the Preserve to the South, or just grab your binoculars & let the birds come to you
Little Williamsburg By the Bay: The quaint, historic town of Eastville is home to the oldest continuous court records in the US, an historic court square, and a number of beautiful homes from several distinct periods of American architectural history. One of our favorite day trips starts & ends in Eastville, and let's you discover some of the Shore's other highlights along the way.
After exploring the Eastville Courthouse Green, travel North to the Barrier Island Center. This cozy little museum tells the stories of our gorgeous barrier islands and the people who have called them home over the years. For lunch scoot across the street to the Machipongo Trading Company, or up the road to the Great Machipongo Clam Shack before joining the guides from SouthEast Expeditions for a kayak trip on Church Creek to Chatham Vineyards. After a little adventure and a glass of Chardonnay you're ready to return to the Eastville Inn for a fantastic dinner & return to Eagle's Rest just in time to watch the sun set over the Chesapeake.
World Class Golf, Small town charm: Historic Cape Charles, VA is 15 minutes south of Eagle's Rest. Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus golf courses are available at Bay Creek development, as well as a public beach, stores, restaurants, and atmosphere that can best be described as 'Mayberry by the Bay'.
The Eastern Shore has been one of the best kept secrets in the Commonwealth since the days that Virginia's capital was located on Plantation Creek during Bacon's Rebellion. Discover why Captain John Smith declared 'Heaven and Earth never agreed better to frame a place for man's habitation...' when he first sailed past our coast.
Eagle's Rest is perched amid pre-historic sand dunes above the waters Capt. Smith sailed. Centrally located in Northampton County, the house is conveniently close to Cape Charles, Eastville, & Onancock, and is a great home base for day trips to Williamsburg, Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and Chincoteague.
Accessible via the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel (One of the 7 Modern Wonders of the World) or by driving down through the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Eagle's Rest is just a half a days drive from DC, Philly, New York, & Raleigh / Durham.
The small towns & villages of the Shore sometimes feel like the land that time forgot... but it's a place you'll never forget.
