On one side of the deck, watch the sun set on the Chesapeake Bay at the mouth of the Onancock Creek; on the other side enjoy peeks of the private protected marina. This adorable, vibrant cottage was recently re-decorated, including new furniture, mattresses, and pots and pans. There are three bedrooms (bedroom #1 has a queen sized bed; bedroom #2 has a full sized bed, and bedroom #3 contains twin over full bunk beds with sturdy stairs and a small 'hang out area' with a couch and TV) and two full baths, a galley kitchen, laundry room, family room, a screened in porch with an adjoining deck, with stairs to the upper level deck.
Enjoy the abundant waterfowl on your kayaking adventures, launched from the sandy neighborhood beach, or take a kayak tour with Onancock’s Southeast Expeditions in town. Rinse off in the outdoor shower after your fishing excursions. This quaint neighborhood is just eight miles away from downtown Onancock, a.k.a. the “Gem of the Eastern Shore” or the 'Gateway City to Tangier Island'. Ferries depart from the Onancock Wharf for the Island Tuesday - Sunday (in-season - see Town of Onancock link for details). Onancock offers several quality antique shops, excellent restaurants, and art galleries that display and sell the work of local artisans. Learn about the rich history of the area at the Kerr Place Museum. The town has an adorable one-room movie theatre, and the North Street Theatre occasionally offers live theatre. Take day trips to Chincoteague, Cape Charles, any of the Eastern Shore’s wineries, or a multitude of other quaint, historic towns. Charter or rent a boat on the seaside town of Wachapreague to explore the barrier islands. Please ask me about Eastern Shore Water Adventures, a new service available for those who don't own their own boat, located just steps away from East Point. Come fall in love with Onancock, and get away from it all (but not too far away)!

I live near Baltimore, MD, but am originally from New England. My awesome husband is from Maryland. I have a degree in pharmacy, and have recently gone back to work after raising three children; two of whom will be off to college next year. I love to take walks, kayak, play board games, do aerobics (check out the new health club downtown!), read, sew, knit (check out the yarn shop, too!), and bring friends to the shore to share good times and all that Onancock has to offer.
I fell in love with Onancock during a trip to one of the great Bed and Breakfasts in town. I love the intimate feel of this wonderfully quaint and historic town, and I am constantly amazed at the quality of the restaurants, and the reasonable prices at some of the antique shops. It is a small, quiet town, but it has everything that you need close at hand. The community of East Point is located a quiet, beautiful peninsula and the 'look-out deck' is a great place to relax and gaze at the sunset on the water.
