The Dryden House is available as a weekly private rental after an extensive historical renovation. For 2014 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.
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.
