CHESAPEAKE BAY BEACH HOUSE - BEACH FRONT AND ENDLESS BAY VIEWS

Reedville House Rental Photos and Description

Main House, 3 Bedrooms + Conv beds, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14); Guest House (Sleeps 6)

Nestled under towering pines and surrounded by an acre of evergreens, we peer out east across the endless and beautiful Chesapeake Bay. The 180 degree view is breathtaking from our private beach, grand porch, or any room in the house. The sunrise is spectacular and nature's beautiful colors change throughout the day.

Whether you're ready for action or much needed relaxation we've got it all. Kids and adults will love the sand and surf just 80 feet from our door. The shallow and protected water makes all kinds of water activities possible - in a safe environment. Land lovers can be equally active by biking or hiking the country roads that wind around the many creeks, inlets, and other tributaries. And everyone can enjoy our many outdoor and indoor games.

You R&R-types are in luck too. Choose to snooze on the porch or the bayside hammock - the views are both outstanding if you can stay awake. Read a good book. We have many and welcome exchanges. View distant merchant ships, Tangier Island, the Bay's only private lighthouse, and a vast array of waterfowl using our binoculars and telescope. Explore historic Reedville, once considered one of the wealthiest towns in America. The 19th-century mansions will astound you. A fisherman's museum, antique shops, and fine restaurants are also popular attractions.

Save some energy for the evening. Cookouts are a must, particularly on the expansive porch and outdoor dining area. Enjoy your dessert bayside while sitting around the firepit. The s'mores, songs, stories, and stars seem all the better by the water's edge.

Our home is a classic southern-living design aptly named 'The Carolina House' due to its predominant use among Carolina country elite. It boasts a grand front and back porch perfect for entertaining and relaxing. The floorplan is open and airy with an emphasis on bay views. The kitchen and eat-in area are the hub of indoor activity with a spectacular 180-degree Bay view. All three bedrooms have their own full bath.

Our additional detached guest house is now available. It has a bedroom, bunkroom, game room, full bath, kitchenette, and sleeps 6. It is strictly for use by whomever is renting the main house and will not be rented separately to another party.

We are Northern Virginia natives who love the outdoors - particularly the beach and mountains. We enjoy short excursions to B&Bs and wineries. We are high-energy, sports-oriented but crave down-time too.

Our hobbies include building sandcastles, building sandcastles, and building sandcastles!

Bill purchased this house in 2011

Our friends bought a waterfront home just south of us 6-years ago. We loved visiting them and eventually found our dream home in the fall of 2011. This is our idea of paradise. It feels like we're at the ocean and deep in the Carolina woods at the same time. It is an easy and beautiful commute through rural farmland and rustic old towns. There are so many things to see and do in a wholesome, family-friendly environment.

We enjoy our private beach more than anything. Whether beachcombing, romping in the water, or just relaxing you can't beat the setting. Our view of the Bay is equally spectacular whether you're down on the beach, nestled in a recliner on the porch, or making a meal in the kitchen. Playtime is endless and the days seem too short. Nightime is fun too. And everything revolves around the entire family having a good time - together.

FAMILY GET TOGETHER

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family had a wonderful holiday at Chesapeake Bay. The weather, the scenery, the peacefulness, the
private beach , the extensive grounds, the wildlife, the getaway from it all feeling, the spacious accommodation were all wonderful and we had a great chillaxing time. Bill, the homeowner, was helpful friendly, responsive and efficient.
It would be hard to improve on things.

THREE GENERATION FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
This lovely beach house was perfect in every way. My husband tried his hand at surf casting , my son- in-law perfected his culinary skills, my daughter made excellent use of the hammock , we all loved the fire pit. My granddaughter had an amazing time at the beach, in the water and in the house crawling around on that lovely carpeting.
The only negative is the location. It is very remote with very few services. There are several restaurants and a really great homemade ice cream store, but not nearly enough to keep one entertained on a rainy day.

CHESAPEAKE BAY DELIGHT.

  • 5 of 5
It was a beautiful week on the Chesapeake Bay for a family reunion from Michigan and Texas. The house was everything that was written about it. There were 8 of us and we had room to move in and get away at that same time. It was the best money I have spent in a long time.

GREAT WEEKEND GET AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Loved the house! It had plenty of room for everyone, and the view was great! Nicely equipped kitchen and comfortable for all. Owner had thought of many little things that made it feel like "home". Everything was there for a great family vacation. Would definitely rent here again!

GREAT PLACE FOR A GROUP OF FRIENDS TO UNWIND

  • 5 of 5
When several girlfriends and I decided it was time to get away for some relaxation time, we picked this wonderful property, and were so glad we did. The owner was welcoming and easy to work with, the house was big enough for us to spread out, had everything we needed, and the location was AMAZing, as you no doubt have read in other reviews. Wide open space, beautiful views, and quiet neighbors. Our stay was in October, which was nice because it was still warm enough to take the kayaks out a time or two, go for walks, and enjoy the outside fire pit. We also went into town and ate lunch one day at the only restaurant, which I can’t remember the name of, and toured the museum, which was quite fascinating. We would absolutely come back again. Our only hiccup, if you will, was that the listing showed a certain price for 5 bedrooms, but two of those five bedrooms are in the guesthouse, which you must pay extra for. This would have been clear to me if I had carefully read the information, but it wasn’t clear at first glance. We opted not to pay the extra fee for the guestroom, so we doubled up in the bedrooms (we had 6 women) and it was fine, although some of us did have to share beds. No problem for us, but just be aware in case the listing information hasn’t changed.
While there I was plotting how I could bring my husband and kids back for a visit. The play structure was inviting and the house seems very kid friendly. Not to mention the fun they would have on the kayaks, bikes, hammock, and beach. Hoping to do that soon! Thanks to the owners for a wonderful stay!

HYPNOTIC SURF AND SUNRISES IN IDYLLIC SETTING

  • 4 of 5
As a winter visitor from an urban location, this location was simply a treasure. The vista, the air, the property tucked away on a back road: serene and just what the doctor ordered -- if his prescription was 'unwind.' The private beach and hammock are tremendous for quality time with family, friends – or just a good book.
Reedville is a very cute strip with an interesting history, and driving through the region is like going back to a quieter time and place. Though I can only imagine it, the Summer bustle must add a degree of energy to time off the property in local towns or public beaches or biking or kayaking that would present simple pleasures of their own.
The property is well-kept, providing just about any amenity you can imagine needing – we made homemade pizza without thinking about if we had a pizza wheelknife, and there it was … along with a great meeting place at the dining room table or extra large living room. (And the reading nook atop the stairs was perfect for a quick read or catnap looking out at the bay)
All told, if you’re considering this location and its personality, that means you’re already part of a self-selected group. So take the plunge and visit – doubt you’ll be disappointed.

Map

All water sports are available and enhanced by the shallow/calm/protected waters. Fishing is outstanding on our private beach, by taking a nearby chartered boat, or by bringing your own boat to dock/launch within minutes of our house. Lawn activities include volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, and croquet.

And we consider R&R an activity too! Snooze in the bayside hammock or porch. Read a good book - we have many and encourage exchanges. Peer through our binoculars or telescope to see an abundance of waterfowl, distant merchant ships, Tangier and Smith Island - with a neat lighthouse - and take a cruise to the Islands too. And don't forget to visit Reedville - it's minutes away and has fascinating 19th century mansions, antiques, fine restaurants, an old-time ice-cream parlor, fisherman's museum, and lots more.
