About the property

3 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 7

Area full of history and nature. Cottage is located on the Chesapeake Bay, on private beach, fabulous sunsets over the Bay. Only 1 hour from a major airport! Virginia's Eastern Shore is known for its friendly people, pristine countryside, and availability of local produce and seafood. There are world-class restaurants within an easy drive, boat rentals, kayaking and windsurfing opportunities, not to mention outstanding fishing off the beach across the street from the cottage, or launch your boat free from Oyster harbor.

Snug, cozy cottage available for winter: Close to hospital, schools. Pets welcome. Beach walking in the winter is fantastic!

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during Memorial day weekend. Eleanor the owner helped make our trip so enjoyable even with last minute reservations. The home is just as described.Nice and clean with pretty much everything you could need. It was very accommodating to our family of 4 and brother and sister in law. The private beach is steps away and a boat ramp nearby with no fees if you chose to bring your boat. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, the sunsets, combing the beach for treasures and cooking out. Lots of local seafood for purchase nearby as well as antiquing and produce stands. We'll definitely be back for sure!

peaceful beach escape

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely August family vacation at Windrush Cottage. The property was just as shown on the website, clean and well-maintained, and Eleanor took great care of us. The house is across the street from the beach, but it does have a water view and direct access. The beach is beautiful and private - we saw only two or three other families there during our whole 5-day stay. The water there is calm and shallow, and would be great for kids. It is definitely an out-of-the-way location, but that's just what we were looking for - we really enjoyed just having lazy days on the screened-in porch. We found plenty of food options, including an organic market, within a 10-minute drive. Highly recommended!
