Cape Charles House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms (plus attic beds), 3 Baths, Sleeps up to 10 guests

The Dryden House is available as a weekly private rental after an extensive historical renovation. For 2013 we've made more improvements and added additional amenities to make your stay even more enjoyable.

This 1912 historic private home is located within a registered historic district, known as the Sea Cottage Addition of Cape Charles, which is comprised of an intact grouping of architecturally significant commercial and residential buildings constructed between 1850 and 1915 that display a variety of styles and types of architectural ornamentation popular during this era. The Dryden House is unique due to its prominent size and central location upon Bay Avenue just steps from the beach and only two blocks from the town's charming business district.

This three-story Victorian has an extensive wrap around porch, with a porte cochere and stunning views of the Bay. This beachfront home features bay views from almost every room in the home including the kitchen. All second floor bedrooms and the third floor have water views. There are two master bedrooms with king beds and two full baths on the second floor with a third modern full bathroom with waterfall shower on the first floor and a convenient washer and dryer. Additional, outdoor shower with temperature control to wash away the salt and sand.

The large kitchen has new stainless steel high end appliances, with two full size sinks spacious enough for two chefs and a separate beverage center and coffee station with Keurig. The over-sized dining room features an expandable dining table that can easily seat 10 plus for meals just off the first floor living room and parlor each with fireplaces and flat screen TV/ DVD.

Finished third floor family room with 42' flat screen TV, DVD, soundbar, Netflix and Amazon Prime Streaming. Wii with balance board and a good selection of Wii games. There is a good selection of over 50 movies for both kids and adults. A full sized foosball table completes the game room for when you're feeling competitive. There is three zone air conditioning to keep you comfortable on those hot days and nights.

The town gazebo and free fishing pier is to the left of the home and the extensive town walkways make this ideal for strolling or catching an evening horse and carriage ride on the Bay. Sunsets are nightly!

We offer conceirge services and will be happy to make reservations for dinner, golf, golf cart rentals, eco tours, kayak tours, etc.

Please let us know of any of your needs.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I rented The Dryden House for my Louisiana siblings and their spouses (8 total) for my sons wedding to a local Eastern Shore girl. They were immensely impressed with the beauty and comfort of the home, the easy beach access and that wonderful porch where they so enjoyed their morning coffee and late night gatherings. I rented 5 homes in all for friends and family, but The Dryden House is where we would return.

Fantastic Beach Home in Cape Charles

  • 5 of 5
The Dryden House is a gorgeous home directly across from the beach access for Cape Charles and a wonderful place to stay when you visit Cape Charles! We stayed there in June and July 2014 and loved the fact that it was so close to the beach and the pier and just a short walk from the main part of town that includes many fine restaurants and shops. We loved watching the sunsets and hanging out at the beach. We also loved the food and drinks at the Gull Hammock Gourmet Market, Kelly's Pub and Cape Charles Coffee House. It was fun to check out the many flavors of brown dog ice cream that are sold in the store and specially made for other shops. The Dryden House is very spacious and makes you feel at home while you are at the beach. A few minutes after you arrive at this gorgeous property you will truly fall in love with its character and location. Hope we get a chance to stay there again soon!!

QUAINT AND QUIET VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay in this beautifully restored home. The kitchen was wonderful and had everything you would need to prepare meals. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the view of the bay was very nice. The beach access is just across the street and the sunsets were picturesque. We had lunch at The Shanty and Rayfield's Pharmacy and the food was very good and people warm and friendly. Everyone enjoyed the hardware store and the other shops along the street. It was so nice that o many things were within walking distance and the weather was so nice. We also enjoyed church services at Trinity UMC. They have a casual service at 8:25 and all are welcome. We had two other couples with us and we truly enjoyed our stay at The Dryden House and making new memories. This is a wonderful home to spend vacation with family and friends. Joe and Beverly Diggs

The Dryden House is top notch!!!

  • 5 of 5
The Dryden House is full of old world charm. This is a home not a house. You can feel it has had a good life and is full of love. We spent Memorial week there. It welcomes you from the moment you open the door. The views from the bedroom are outstanding, to wake up in the morning and look out at the Bay is special. The beds are all so comfortable. The appliances are all first rate. The home is well maintained and very clean. All the furniture is comfortable and fits the home. The home has been renovated and the owners paid close attention to keeping the old details. Looking at the home from the beach I was proud to be staying there. It was especially nice to sit out on the front porch in the evening watch the sunset. The beach is your front yard. You cant get any closer unless you sleep on the beach. We enjoyed walks on the beach in the morning and evening. My son was able to fish on the pier which is only 1 block away. We flew kites on the beach. We antiqued in the town. We had dinner the local restaurants, Kelly's Gingernut Pub, The Shanty and The Gourmet grab n go. The Coffee House was great for breakfast all within walking distance. The Pharmacy has a soda fountain in it to complete a step back in time when things were more simple. The Aqua restaurant is a long walk or short drive away, but well worth the price for that special evening. I will recommend The Dryden House to family and friends and we hope to return again next year.

Beautiful beach home - great for families!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautifully restored home in a quaint small VA town. The home is spacious, nicely decorated, comfortable AND clean! The bedrooms are large with comfortable bedding. The kitchen is great and well furnished. We enjoyed cooking though if dining out is preferred, there are plenty of restaurants nearby - some within walking distance. Located a very short walk to a great beach for families. So close, we could go back and forth during the day. The beach is not crowded and the water is perfect for young children - warm with gentle waves. The nearby state park has daily activities for adults and children with miles of trails. Stop in at the park office for the weekly calendar. We had a wonderful time and already discussed staying here again. Our group ranged in age from 2 months to 76 - all had a wonderful time. Highly recommend! Only thing that could be better would be some rockers or a porch swing for the lovely large porch.

Fabulous Restoration!

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed in many waterfront vacation houses, but this one felt like home the minute we walked in the door. Having grown up in a Craftsman-style American Foursquare reminiscent of this house, I was so pleased to see the care that has been taken to preserve the old woodwork and even that classic original fireplace tile. That being said, we also enjoyed the modern conveniences that were added with the modernization --- such as internet, Netflix, and a Keurig coffeemaker. All of the comforts of home, including a generous supply of comfortable linens, made this a most pleasant visit. We enjoyed strolling through the town, browsing through the shops, walking out on the pier, and chatting with the local residents. Upscale restaurants offered excellent dining experiences. Although our visit to Cape Charles lasted only four days, we explored a nearby antique mall one day, and the next day took a drive up to Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge to see the wild ponies. A short drive from the Wildlife Refuge to the ocean rounded out our trip with a walk along the beach to watch the dolphins. Back to the house to relax on that wraparound porch, we wished our fall getaway could have lasted longer.
