Hi Fellow Beach Lovers! I'm a former tourism director now turned full time writer. I built Mermaid Bay Beach Cottage in the 90s and happily raised my daughter Alex here. There was no finer place for a child to grow up connected to the rhythm of the tides and small town Southern sensibilities. We welcome you to share our serene shores with you and your loved ones.

If you're like me, body packed, sterile beaches with expensive blocks-away parking raise your blood pressure. Instead recharge, relax and reconnect on quiet sands where eagles and osprey soar. Kick your shoes off on the porch and step right onto your own secluded, sandy beach with miles of natural beach to explore. Tucked away yet an 8 minute easy drive to our lovely hometown of Cape Charles. Bistros, shops, day spa, first class golf courses and most importantly-- friendly, helpful people. :)

A true gem on the Chesapeake Bay!

  • 5 of 5
I can honestly say that the pictures on this site do not do this place justice. The location was better than described and the cottage was very charming and incredibly welcoming. Everything was well-maintained and had just about everything we needed (including a charcoal grill). There was plenty of room for all 11 of us (including four kids ages 11, 9, 7, and 4). The best part was the quick walk through the yard to the private beach. We only saw one visitor, a distant neighbors very friendly dog! The water is shallow and the waves were calm which was perfect for my little ones. The property and surrounding area was fun to explore and was very private.

Downtown Cape Charles had some fun things to offer when you needed a break from the beach. Food at the Gingernut Pub was pretty good and everyone enjoyed hand made ice cream from Brown Dog. There are some cute shops downtown as well. One day we had Southeast Expeditions deliver kayaks to cottage and we were able to explore the Bay and nearby tidal pools. In the evenings, there was a nice selection of games and movies for the kids to enjoy (these could be found in the upstairs den) while the adults took advantage of the the breeze and cocktails on the screened in porch. A grocery store is located about 10 minutes away from the property so you could grab anything you need.

Thanks for a great stay. Renting was a snap and we will be back again next year!

Best Beach Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5
My family has enjoyed years of beach vacations from the Jersey Shore and Virginia Beach to The Outer Banks but our vacation at Mermaid Bay Beach Cottage was by far our best experience. The location is just phenomenal! Who knew without spending a fortune one could have their very own beach--so private--and all you do is walk off the porch and there you are! The natural setting is what all beaches must have looked like before we ruined them.I enjoyed my early morning coffee from the 2nd story porch off the master suite overlooking the Chesapeake Bay watching the deer stroll the sands. Later floating on the calm, warm water I'd see the bald eagles soaring above. Just magical. And the sunsets-WOW!! It became our nightly ritual to pull up our beach chairs and build a campfire. The kids roasted marshmallows while we enjoyed our cocktails as the sun set the waters ablaze with color.We have a zillion pictures. Though the beach house is secluded it is very close to this cute town called Cape Charles. There is no traffic so you can get there in like 10 minutes. For a small town it offers a lot and is also on the bay. Fun restaurants -local seafood abounds, homemade ice-cream, gourmet take out too for beach picnics. :) We enjoyed shopping the stores. if you like local art there is a so much available in a range of prices. My favorite was handcrafted jewelry made from local sea-glass at a shop owned by the artist: Cape Charles Sea Glass.I bought several one of kind pieces, my kind of sovereign! If you are into golf, we're not, there is 2 courses in Cape Charles that we were told rival most. Mid-trip we found out we could rent kayaks in town and have them delivered to the beach house so we did that.They do guided tours as well but I just couldn't miss the time on "our" beach . There was 8 of us and the house was roomy. It has 3 large porches and an outdoor private shower as well. [my sister took all her showers there]Though a lovely home it is casual and comfy. You don't get any"don't touch" vibes. I just can't tell you well enough how much we all enjoyed this vacation. I actually came home relaxed rather than needing a vacation from my vacation. If you are considering this house for your family vacation my advice: Grab it!

Secluded Bay-front Getaway

  • 4 of 5
We were looking for an alternative to a hotel option to celebrate our daughter's 30th birthday and we found this gem! The off-peak season prices made this mini-vacation truly one to remember! The location is wonderful and very tranquil - the sunsets (and sunrises on the nearby lagoon!) are top notch and the accommodations were very nice!

The family had plenty of room to hang out and if needed, spend some quiet "alone" time. Central to many places to eat and explore, yet off the beaten track makes this a great place to relax and recharge!

Remote is close, and close to fun amenties. Tucked between the bay and sea, the pastoral peninsula of Virginia's Eastern Shore is just 30 minutes north of Virginia Beach but sans the crowded sands and traffic.

Revel in nature's playground, feast on fresh from the tides seafood, and soak up small town hospitality.

EASY will be this vacation from packing-- throw in the bathing suits and beachy attire-- to planning-- why not wake up and see where the gulls take you?

You'll make memories at Mermaid Bay.
