About Christie Hottenstein
Hello! This home was purchased by myself, my husband and my parents. We all live in PA, as we have our whole lives. We have three kids, 14, 12 and 10 that are very strong personalities! We grew up going to the mountains and camping as kids, with occasional trips to the beach. Even with our kids, we've been more mountain people with our cabin in Tioga County. However, we went on vacation and found Cape Charles and fell in love with the town! We never planned to buy a beach house, but look at us now! God had other plans for us! We all just fell in love with the town during our vacation and my parents were already house shopping before the week was up!
Christie Hottenstein purchased this House in 2016
Why Christie Hottenstein chose Cape Charles
We had never been here until our vacation in 2015. The town is very quaint, we love to just walk around and check out all of the houses and the architecture. For us, going to the beach always meant people, busy, stress, traffic, etc. Coming here was totally different! The town is quiet, especially where we are, even in the peak of summer! The beach is nice and big with plenty of space to spread out. Having an area of the bay roped off and leveled off, makes it much safer to swim. Knowing that huge waves aren't going to knock over the kids, mom can relax and read a book! The kids ride their bikes around town, to the pier and park without much concern of traffic. And the people are so friendly! That was a huge difference over going to other places.
What makes this House unique
We chose our house for a couple of reasons. We loved the open layout with the high ceilings. It has character that we tried to keep during the restoration. The staircase when you first walk in is original. Having a corner lot is also very nice! This means that parking isn't a problem and we have a decent yard! Most houses only have on-street parking and many have small yards. We also like not being right next to the beach so that it's quiet and peaceful even in the peak of summer! We walk or ride bikes to the park, only 1 block away, Mason Street (main Street) is 3 blocks and the beach is 6 blocks. However, you can also easily drive to any location and find plenty of free parking!

Property was very large and had been recently renovated completely. Location was near the center of Cape Charles. Very convenient to restaurants and Golf course. So nice that we will more than likely try to return again next year.
Love this porch!
Very clean & comfortable. Our family of 4 had everything we needed. Very nice renovation! We especially enjoyed sitting out on the front porch. Thanks so much, we had a great vacation week in this rental home.
Great place to stay
Clean, spacious and well-run property
We stayed here during the off season while in town to visit family. The property is very well kept and well run with plenty of space. The attic game room was great for the kids.
Sea Glass Haven is lovely. It is spacious, yet cozy, has a fully stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, you won't want to leave!! The home is walking distance to the downtown area and Cape Charles has some great little shops and restaurants to enjoy.
This home is the perfect getaway.

We are located close to two golf courses, Golf Club at Bay Creek has both a Nicklaus Course and a Palmer Course. You can walk main street and enjoy the shops, get a massage at the spa, go to the park and play tennis or enjoy the newly redone playground, look for sea glass, fish off the pier , drive a golf cart around town, go kayaking, visit state parks and go for hikes, charter a boat from one of the local marinas for fishing, or just sit on the beach and soak up the sun!
