Star gazing is great. Hear the ocean waves from Assateague, or see wild ponies grazing across the bay. Take a cup of coffee or a cocktail up to the tower and enjoy the views. The property has 200 ft. of waterfront on Oyster Bay - to the left there is a park- like feel. In front along the water's edge, there is plenty of room to throw in a fishing line (in certain seasons flounder and stripped bass patrol the local waters), or a crab line or a crab pot. Listen to the call of the gulls and watch the Osprey soar. Take a kayak (2 included with the rental) on a little water/ marsh adventure. Boat to Assateague, clam or explore - minimal boat traffic. Sunbathe, relax on the decks with your favorite book, smell the salt air, feel the breeze, unwind, relax. It's paradise!!!
Enjoy the Beach and the Food: The beach on Assateague is fantastic (8 min. ride by car, or take a bike ). Voted one of the best beaches in America, it is natural and wild in places, yet offers a large beach area with gentle slopes and with life guards . Tom's Cove on the bayside of the beach is no more than 200 yards away - for a no wave swim. The sand is pristine. Surf fish if you like. Watch the dolphins. Picnic at the beach - (also 'necessary rooms' on site). On the way home stop for homemade ice cream at the Island Creamery and/or fresh seafood at Howard's - around the corner from the house, and pick up fresh oysters, clams, mussels, crabs, lobsters, scallops, or fish - you'll have a great dinner on the porch. If you don't want to cook, AJ's on the Creek, Bill's and others, will provide you with some very good fare (we will provide you a restaurant guide). For a culinary delight, a charming town, a nice walk along the Creek, drive S. to Onancock for the evening - 5+ wonderful restaurants - 50 minutes
