HISTORIC HOME ON ONANCOCK CREEK

Onancock House Rental Photos and Description

Steps away from the water, friendly town

The Parsonage was built in 1836 and was restored between 2001 and 2010. The house has a large front porch with rockers and a table for coffee or lunch. There are three bedrooms on the second level. The master bedroom has a queen bed with en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. Guest room#1 has a queen bed with private sink that opens into a shared bathroom. Guestroom#2 (Loft) has a sleep number full sized bed with shared bathroom. The large guest bathroom includes walk-in shower and claw foot soaking tub. A washer and dryer are in a separate room.

The main level of the house includes a parlor with sleep sofa, a game room with television, couch and foosball table, puzzles and books. The kitchen is an open plan with dining room and sun room. There is another sleep sofa in the sun room. There is also a bathroom with a shower on the main living level.

The house was renovated following a fire so everything is new. Bathrooms are all ceramic tile and the kitchen has granite counter tops with an eat in table and a built in bar for gathering around. The kitchen contains everything you will need including basic pantry items. Back deck has a grill and two sheds that contain bikes for your use to get around town even though everything is in walking distance.

The Wharf is only steps away where you can rent kayaks, bikes, fish or crab from the dock or take the ferry to visit Tangier Island for the day. We have a private deep water boat slip right down the street, so if you are bringing your boat to fish or explore the Eastern Shore, let us know. There is a public boat ramp at the same location. If you have a boat there is so much to explore. Onancock Creek is about 4 miles long and opens up into the Chesapeake Bay. The area is pristine with secluded beaches all up and down the coast.

If the ocean is your thing, Assateague National Park is about a 35 minute drive to the North. It is the closest beach with surf and easy parking. The town of Chincoteague is a fun day trip.

The town of Onancock has a charm all its own. It has a small town feel where your kids can walk down the street and go fishing and you don't have to worry about them.

We have lived in Northern Virginia for 35 years. Onancock is our weekend getaway. We spent nearly 10 years (of weekends) renovating the house after a fire. The house originally belonged to the historic Cokesbury Church and was the home of the minister. We got caught up in the story and decided to renovate instead of tearing it down. It contains the original heart pine floors in the master bedroom and the beams on the main floor are original. We filled it with some our favorite things, some antiques, some new furniture and just love coming here.

Kathi Williams purchased this house in 2001

It is a wonderful getaway where you can let your hair down and relax! We love to cycle, kayak and boat so this was the perfect place for us.

You can sit on the front porch in a rocking chair and watch the fishing boats go up and down the creek while you drink your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail. Whether you are a friend or a stranger, neighbors wave as they walk by. In the summer, you can buy fresh fish right across the street. There is also a farmer's market on Saturdays where you can purchase fresh picked produce. We love that the restaurants are only steps away. The sunsets are beautiful sitting on the deck at Mallards Restaurant.

A very pleasant quiet getaway.

When we pulled up in front of the property the first thing that came to mind is how quiet this property is going to be with it's location off of the beaten path. That was only the beginning, once inside we toured the property and absorbed the charm that engulfed the home that was so carefully restored. We came to the conclusion that we are fortunate the the owner shared their home away from home with us and are very happy that they chose to restore the parsonage rather than flatten and build something new. Another plus is that the downtown shops and local watering hole were all well within walking distance. There was ample space that allowed 6 adults, a toddler, a newborn and 2 chihauhau's to feel comfortable and not crowded. Would we plan another stay here, very likely!

My inlaws came and stayed here from England. They enjoyed the house, we enjoyed the house, everyone who saw the house was amazed by it. The house is beautiful to look at, well laid out, and just a delight to be in. Recommend this to anyone looking for a vacation on the Eastern Shore of VA. Home away from home. Thank you for letting us 'borrow your house'. It was wonderful.

This is a beautiful property and the location is perfect. We spent our days walking around Onancock which is one of our favorite spots on the Eastern Shore. We usually visit by boat but staying at 6 King Street was a perfect get away and change of pace for us. The front porch is an ideal spot to spend the afternoon reading or just watching people go by. We definitely recommend this property families, girls get away or a romantic weekend. The history of the property is especially interesting.

This is a truly lovely home. We enjoyed every moment in this beautifully restored historic property. There is plenty of room for everyone with a great kitchen and stunning bathrooms. The property is conveniently located in the charming Onancock. We walked everywhere and appreciated the low-key, friendly town that sets the stage for a relaxing getaway. There are several excellent restaurants and the absolute best doughnuts at the Corner Bakery. We also enjoyed kayaking and the beach at nearby Assateague. A special thank you to the property owners for your helpful assistance and gracious hospitality!

Historic Onancock is a lovely small town that is family friendly. Onancock Wharf is steps from the house where you can rent a kayak, fish or launch a boat at the public boat ramp. The Chesapeake Bay is a 4 mile paddle with beaches along the way. If you bring a boat, a private slip is included. The town hosts artists and galleries, shops, antiques and wonderful restaurants. If you like to cycle, the Eastern Shore is flat and fun to cycle short or long distances. Waterfront is found at the end of many roads on this small peninsula. The Bay is on one side and the ocean is on the other side. There is a movie theater in town and a playhouse featuring live performances.
