Water front three bedroom home with large deck and private pier on the Chesapeake Bay and the Eastern Shore of Virginia. The home has been completely renovated and is now being offered for vacation rental. We have king sized beds in two bedrooms and a queen in the other as well as a sofa bed in the family room. Also a twin in one of the bedrooms with a king.
The home sits outside the charming town of Onancock, Virginia which was chartered by the British in 1680 and upon whose waters Captain John Smith traveled. In Onancock you will find several fine restaurants, galleries, bakery,shops, movie theatre and museum.
Please see the attached links to the web sites for Onancock and the Eastern Shore of Virginia for more information on the area.
This is a perfect setting for family vacations on the water---ideal for boating, fishing, crabbing, hunting, birding and exploring. Comfortable home with all the conveniences. Deep Creek and the retreat are located on the Bay side of the Delmarva peninsula. A short drive across the peninsula provides access to the Atlantic Ocean for bathing, beachcombing and fishing in Chincoteague. Ocean City, Maryland and Virginia Beach are also easy day trips.
Bring your boat, charter one or rent locally. There is a marina close to the house. Plus we have a canoe and kayak that you are welcome to use. Also there are several public boat ramps within easy reach.
In the Spring and Summer there is a boat that leaves from the Onancock harbor going to Tangier Island that sits in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. There are only a handful of cars on Tangier with travel most often by golf cart or foot. Several wonderful family style restaurants await visitors to Tangier Island. A fun excursion for all.
If interested in the beauty of nature both land and sea you will find that a visit to the Eastern Shore of Virginia is one that you will remember for years to come.
Please contact us via e-mail with any questions. We will respond promptly. Many thanks for looking at our listing.
