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.
From the moment we pulled into the driveway...our stress drained away. This home has everything you can ask for in a weekend getaway. Its located close to the marina and the ferry to Tangier. Theres a nice little restaurant called Mallards within walking distance. Cute shops in town...also walking distance. The owners have done an amazing job renovating this lovely home. Beds are comfy and every nook anf cranny has an interesting piece of art or decor. The bathrooms are wonderful...and kitchen too. We spent alot of time in the beautiful sun room. To the owners: Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!
Our family from England came again (2 years running) and again loved the house and all the surrounding areas. All was wonderful again. House is so beautiful and the owners have thought of everything you might need during the stay. I can't recommend this place enough. thanks as always! They will be back next year I am sure.
We had a wonderful time during our stay at The Parsonage! The house was very clean, the kitchen was modern & well equipped, beds were very comfortable and the towels were large and soft! Kathi was a wonderful hostess! If you are planning a stay in the area we highly suggest you stay at The Parsonage. You will enjoy relaxing on the large front porch! Thanks for letting us bring our pets! Kudos to he owners for restoring this grand, old house to the original beauty!
The property was everything we expected and more. -Beautifully furnished and maintained, immaculate, plenty of linens, very friendly and helpful owner. We will be going back again very soon
I had high expectations based on previous reviews, and they were all exceeded. We are half way through our stay with my kids and grandkids. The house is just beautiful. Everyone feels at home, and enjoys the house. We are familiar with the area, as my son lives here, but we needed to rent for the weekend due to a family party and lack of room at his house. This was perfect. Everything is in walking distance.
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!
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.
