Silver Beach Cove is a sanctuary from the workaday world! Settle in to a relaxing stay in this lovely three bedroom, two and-a-half bath house (and outdoor shower!) All rooms have vaulted ceilings, and gorgeous views!
Nestled on a secluded cove, we are surrounded by woods and farmland. Bay breezes and nature embrace you on the wrap-around screen porch and back deck. Living areas center around a river rock gas fireplace. Enjoy your coffeecake while watching trees rustle and egrets fishing for their breakfast. Just outside are fresh herbs growing to supply your gourmet needs.
The master bedroom suite has a queen-sized bed and a soaking tub under garden windows. Other sleeping spaces include another queen bed in the second BR, and a double in the third BR. Extra sheets, pillows, and quilts are provided.
Extra-wide doorways and all-one-level floor plan accomodate wheelchair use gracefully. Your well-mannered pet is welcome, and a 'petdoor' allows easy access to the screen porch (ask about pet and baby arrangements). Crib, high chair, and stroller are available.
There are many activities and delightful restaurants within a short drive from Silver Beach Cove (we'll leave you a list of our favorites), AND crabbing, biking, and canoe/kayaking equipment provided on site. But we bet you'll just want to settle in-—it is one of the most beautiful, tranquil places on the East Coast!
As two middle-aged teachers, we built this cottage to be our future retirement heaven. Until that time, we rent to folks who turn out to be amazingly similar to us: outdoorsy, like reading more than watching TV, enjoy chatting, padding, and drinking homebrew beer, and LOVE to eat!
When we cross the Cheapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, our stresses are left behind in the city, and years fall away. Eastern Shore has been protected by the CBBT toll, and a slower way of life is here on the Shore. We avoid chain restaurants and instead shop at the many quirky mom&pop places, vegetable stands, seafood-from-an-icechest on the back of a-truck style of life.
Snowy egrets winging down the cove, profound peace, solitude, a feeling of connection with a larger sense of wholeness; giant oak trees and the rippling gold of winter wheat across the front field. Shifting light creates translucent colors 'painted' across the cove at dawn & sunset. Even lightning storms, glimpsed across the Bay, make this an almost magically calming place.
Crabbing, Canoe and Kayak provided, Fresh Seafood and Produce at roadside stands, Working Artists' Studios nearby, Star-gazing, Vineyards, Wildlife viewing (eagles, hummingbirds!), Antiques, Restaurants (quirky to luxurious), Sightseeing (close to Chincoteague, Tangier Is, Cape Charles, scenic fishing villages & historical sites)
