LUXURY WATERFRONT HOME, 5 BEDROOMS, 4 BATHROOMS, ELEVATOR, BREATHTAKING VIEWS

Chincoteague Island House Rental Photos and Description

Directly On Chincoteague Channel Overlooking Chincoteague Bay

The Moorings North is an unique architecturally designed luxury 5 bedroom home in the heart of Chincoteague Island, VA. The house is elegantly decorated and has mesmerizing panoramic views of Chincoteague Bay. It is conveniently located in walking distance to small shops, a coffee house, and restaurants.

This upscale home is an ideal waterfront vacation spot for families as well as for couples who are seeking a romantic getaway.

Be our guest at Moorings North and enjoy your vacation in a beautiful setting with nearby award winning beaches and wildlife refuges.

Two-story porches grace the front of this dynamic house custom designed for your comfort by local architectural designer Richard Vesely. You will enter a tiled, light filled two-and-a-half story high entrance hall with a grand staircase, and French chandelier. Ascending the stairs, you’ll be delighted along the way by the views to the water from three towering windows, or take the convenient windowed elevator to the living level on the upper floor.

With the reverse floor plan the upper level is the main living level including the great room with beverage bar, kitchen, master bedroom, and a full bathroom.

Arriving in the great room, you’re sure to notice the ravishing Brazilian Tigerwood flooring, but your eye (and your heart) will quickly be drawn to what you’re here for: a wall of nine windows will open up sweeping views of sun-diamonds dancing on the sparkling waters of Chincoteague Bay. Stunning, simply stunning!

The great room is combined with the dining area and an open concept luxury kitchen, which invites you to entertain yourself, your family and your friends. The towering cathedral ceiling in the great room will give you a sense of space and open feeling on hot summer days as well as a cozy atmosphere by the gas fireplace during your relaxing winter vacation. You’ll enjoy preparing locally caught seafood in the fully appointed gourmet kitchen. Two ovens, warming drawer, microwave, dishwasher, granite counter tops and more are waiting for you. While some gather around the large screen plasma TV on the fireplace wall, one or two may prepare drinks at the Carrara marble beverage center.

The spacious tile-floored kitchen with its cherry cabinets and granite counter tops is sure to be a popular spot to entertain. There is plenty of room to pitch-in for cocktail and canapé, or prepare a delicious supper of fresh seafood purchased at the town dock.

Everyone will gravitate to the welcoming French country dining table centered under the gentle glow of the Provincial iron chandelier. Notice, too, how the dining area floor of Mexican Travertine is set into the hardwood flooring.

While the house has two climate control systems, there will be days when you will want to open the French doors leading from the dining area to the columned, covered Gazebo-in-The-Sky: outdoor relaxation sublime high above the sparkling waters. Here, it’s likely you will linger (probably everyday) while the sky turns indescribable shades of magenta and crimson-orange as the timeless sun descends into the welcoming bay. In this amazing outdoor living space you’ll find a gas grill to bring even your cooking outdoors.

Up an intriguing spiral stair from the Main Level is the Tower-Hide-Away with two additional twin beds, just right for the young, and the young-at-heart. The view from the highest point of the house over the waters are indeed again breathtaking. Tower guests shares bath on Main Level.

At the end of your day on Assateague Island’s pristine ocean beach (or perhaps you climbed to the top of the lighthouse?) you’ll be ready to enjoy a great night’s rest in your private quarters on the Lower Level. Because there are two richly carpeted master suites, each equally tasteful decorated rooms with king-size bed, granite top make-up vanity, walk in closet, full tiled bathroom with separate tub, and walk in shower, perhaps there won’t be any trouble over ‘who-gets-to-sleep-where’.

A word about the bathrooms: one has a large Kohler soaking tub, the other one has a Kohler whirlpool tub for two. Did we mention that each of these suites has a private balcony over the water?

On this level there’s a room with two twin beds, and an ensuite bath with water view window in the shower.

As many of the houses on the coastline Moorings North is elevated, which will give you extra storage space on a partially enclosed ground level as well as a Weber charcoal grill and direct water access. Tie your up to 65’ long boat up in deep water at our bulk-headed dock right there. Catch your all time fresh crabs and fish right from the dock. How much fun will it be for children and grown-ups to provide your seafood dinner right from the water in front of your vacation residence? You hardly want to leave your vacation spot right on the water of Chincoteague Channel, but in case you would like to spend a day at the beach, we’ll provide beach chairs, sun umbrella and boogie boards for you. When you come back from a beautiful day on the beach, enjoy the convenience of an outdoor shower. From the ground level there is an elevator entrance handy for handling luggage and bringing in the groceries. This elevator makes all floors handicapped accessible.

Still some energy left? Take one of the bikes and explore the many attractions Chincoteague Island has to offer.

We will do whatever is in our hands to make your vacation time at Moorings North exceptional, comfortable, and unforgettable. We welcome you to our well-loved home on Chincoteague Island!

About Claudia and Claus Grill

After a couple of visits to the island we absolutely fell in love with Chincoteague. We, the 'Grill-Family' from Chester Springs, PA, were always looking for beautiful relaxing locations, to spend time with the kids on the beach, at the same time having the most quiet and friendly environment to reenergize from our busy life. We found it with Chincoteague Island and were entranced with the beauty, the 'million dollar views' and the friendliness of the people on this island.

So when we started looking for houses, we did it with a spirit of it being our second home and not a business investment primarily. We have very high standards of excellence and customer satisfaction with an overarching desire to make our guests feel like home. We believe in the importance of personal touch and caring in all we do. That's why we also decided to manage the property personally, knowing the local staff maintaining the house and being in direct contact with our guests. The Moorings North was the perfect fit for us: Beautifully furnished with unbelievable views, luxurious look & feel. We are committed to constantly further upgrading this already beautiful high end home and are proud to share it with you.

Gorgeous home, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a most relaxing and enjoyable stay at this comfortable and beautiful home. We were a group of 10 and found the right balance between privacy and interaction here. The kitchen is well-equipped; the house has a great design (and even an elevator). The home is tastefully decorated and shows the owners' attention to detail and care. We will be back!

Best Vacation House on the Island!!

  • 5 of 5
I have been vacationing in Chincoteague with my family for the past 31 years staying at mobile homes, cabins, hotels and other rental homes but Moorings North is by far the best place we have stayed at. The house is spacious, beautiful, and well-appointed. The views are breath-taking anytime of the day but especially at sunset. To top it all off, Claus and Claudia were excellent to deal with. All the personal touches from their emails to the welcome and thank you cards to the gift basket and to many more small gestures all added up to a wonderful and relaxing stay at the Best Vacation House on the Island: Moorings North! We all loved it and am hoping to be able to book another stay next year but the reservations go fast.

We thank you for being such wonderful and appreciative guests and of course we would love to see you all coming back. You have seen the island changing over so many years and we hope that you will continue to find what you are looking for: incredible wildlife, paired with miles of pristine beaches and a place to stay, where your family hopefully always feel home the minute you’ll walk in.

Ideal for Nature Lovers

  • 5 of 5
The house is beautiful, well appointed and ideally located. The wall of windows in the great room faces the bay which is a combination of open water and marshes. One morning we saw a pod of ~20 dolphins swim right past the house (within 50-100 ft). Another day we saw two bald eagles. There was almost always a variety of herons and egrets in sight. On clear nights the sunsets were spectacular. We enjoyed the house as much as we enjoyed the beach.
Claudia and Claus are also attentive hosts. My wife has problems with allergies and Claudia arranged for the linens to be washed in an unscented detergent before we arrived.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Tom, for your kind feedback about the home and the island. Island residents have told us that once in a while dolphins would swim through the Channel. I was so excited to read that you were the lucky ones, who could watch them swimming by. Yes, Chincoteague Island is a paradise for wildlife and its nature lover. We hope it will stay this way. Thank you also for your friendly words about the home and its location. We thank you and your family for staying with us.

Wonderful Home for Large Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 adults and 4 children, 3 generations, loved our stay at Moorings North. Very convent for activities at Assateague. Some days were spent at the beach. Participated in a number of activities organized through the NPS especially for children including a 2 hour bus trip into the northern area of Assateague where the ponies run free.
The house provided lenty of room to spread out. Most of our meals were at the outdoor gazebo where everyone enjoyed watching the boats passing by, the birds across the way and of course the jellyfish below. The 8 and 10 year old loved their private space in the tower.
Having bikes available was great for rides with the kids. Having all the linens provided made things so much easier. Claudia was very helpful before we went in in answering questions we had.

The Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family has been vacationing in Chincoteague every summer for the past few summers, but it was only this year at Moorings North that we finally found "our" spot.

We fell in love with the house from the moment we walked in. Our daughter (10) was more than excited to check out every level, every nook and cranny, and especially excited about the elevator. The views from the family room took our breaths away.

My husband's passion is fishing, and this house was in the perfect location. He tied his John boat up out behind the house and went out every morning and most evenings. We could have lived off the flounder he caught!

This will sound silly but one thing I loved was for once being the adults that "hosted" the vacation - that meant we got one of the master suits. I only wish I'd had time to soak in the tub. The bathroom was beautiful - spacious and tiled.

Our friends who came with us were just as awed with the place as we were. We spent evenings grilling on the deck, watching the sunset over the water. We took bike rides through town or to the grocery store, and we put together a 750-peice puzzle of the NY skyline with a view of the water before us!

It was great being close to Main Street but far enough away from the noise. With the beach only a short ride away...we were in heaven.

What made this experience even better was the owner. Claudia was so helpful and pleasant, responsive and kind. We emailed her to let her know one of the stove top burners wasn't getting fully hot, and her response was fast and gracious.

We've already reserved our week here next year!

thank you for writing this lovely review for Chincoteauge Island and our vacation home. We are so happy to hear that you have enjoyed your stay at Moorings North that much, that you would like to come back next year. Thank you for your next year’s booking. This is the best compliment our home can get. We are especially excited that you, too, have enjoyed the views and that Mike used the convenience of easy mooring his boat. We love to just sit in the Gazebo and watch the boats going by. We are so glad that this worked out so perfectly. Thank you for being such wonderful guests. We are looking forward to welcoming you next summer.

Chincoteagues Best Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a marvelous time at Moorings North. We have been to Chincoteague several times before but this was our first time in Claudia and Claus's lovely home. It was so beautiful! Everything you need is provided for -- They have really thought of everything. The home was clean and cool when we arrived. The gourmet kitchen was very comfortable for preparing family meals with plentiful supply of dishes, glasses, silverware and cookware. We used the gas grill on the big outdoor deck for several dinners and really enjoyed the balconies all around. Nice linens were provided for all the beds and bathrooms. Lots of extras like board games, an Ipad, boogie boards for the beach, etc, etc. Our favorite was the bikes. They are really nice cruisers and we used them alot. They even had tools hanging right with the bikes so you can adjust if the seat is too high, etc. The house is only a short walk or ride straight down main street to all the cute little shops in the center of town so we went to the coffee shop, the ice cream shops and browsed all the little art shops -- great fun. The views are so beautiful from every window, especially from the living room -- simply breathtaking! Everyone took so many pictures that we will need a while to compile them all! The house is really perfect for all ages too. Our group was 1 toddler, 1 teenager, 2 young parents, 3 in our 40-50's and 3 Seniors 65+ and everyone had just what they wanted. The elevator is great -- very convenient but safely set up so no risk for our little one. My teen daughter loved her "tree house" (the loft bedroom with the spiral staircase). All the other bedrooms are suites with beautiful attached bathrooms and comfortable beds. This lovely home was the perfect retreat with privacy for everyone and space to enjoy being together after each day of fun. We went sightseeing, boating, to NASA, to the beach, on a photo cruise to see the ponies, fishing, etc. and loved having this delightful home to rest in after each days adventures. Really I can go on and on but you just need to go and enjoy this amazing home for yourself. You will not be sorry! We can't wait to go back. Thank you Claus and Claudia for being such welcoming and attentive hosts and sharing your lovely home on Chincoteague Island.
