Sittin' and rockin' after the beach. Newly bought and already a showpiece. The owners have furnished their home with the comfort of their guests in mind. Located a short 1 block to the beautiful Cape Charles town beach, this home offers 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, office, 2 dining areas, a spacious modern kitchen with plenty of prep area, a convenient laundry room off the kitchen and both side and back doors for convenience.The second level offers 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 full baths. The third level is a true hideaway. Great for kids but also wonderful for a parents retreat. Spacious and private.

Sit on the covered wrap around porch in comfortable rocking chairs and enjoy people watching, catching up on a good book or a midday nap. When your rested from a hard day at the beach, walk the two blocks into town for restaurants, shopping, homemade ice cream (so good!) and watching the sun set over the Bay. We celebrate sunsets, as one is more beautiful than the next.

Cape Charles is golf cart friendly. Leave your car at the house and explore the town and Bay-Creek from your golf cart rental.

From chartering a boat, to taking a guided kayak tour, horseback riding, winery tours, eco tours or antiquing, you'll remember this vacation for a long time.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Upon arrival in Sisters 3 house nightmare, and after complaining, we were provided the Chesapeake Dream home. It more than made up for the bad experience. Chesapeake Dream is a custom home with very nice surprises in most rooms. I will look up Chuck or Kathy the next time we think about Cape Charles for a vacation.

Chesapeake Dream is MY DREAM!

  • 5 of 5

Chesapeake Dream is such a grand home. Beauty of history with all the modern amenities. This is the 2nd year in a row we have stayed here and love it more and more each time. Beautiful corner house with a wrap around porch to sit and drink coffee in the mornings, tea in the afternoon and steamed shrimp all day long. So close to the beach that we walked barefoot there. Love the beautiful gardens! By far the finest house in town. So relaxing and lovely to walk to Mason Street for dinner and then a few short blocks to Central Park. Cape Charles is my favorite nook in the world and Chesapeake Dream is my favorite place to relax. You can tell this home is loved by the owners. It is beautifully maintained and decorated with such care. It makes the walls of the home seem to open up and hug you when you arrive. Not just a vacation place to stay, but a beloved home to enjoy. Definitely will be back again and again!!

Owner's Response: Laura, As manager's of this home, we feel the same way. The home does "hug" you when you walk in. The owners are always doing something new when they come down in order to preserve that special feeling for guests. We hope you continue to visit our little slice of heaven!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I agree with the review that says this is the best place to stay in Cape Charles. I rented many cottages for a family reunion, and this was the best. Clean, charming, wonderful furnishings, great amenities....I could go on and on. Enjoyed the beautiful yard, and there was plenty of room for family gatherings. My husband and I stayed on the third floor, a perfect, quiet hideaway. The porch is wonderful for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning.

Beautiful traditional home with all the amenities of a modern home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed our stay. The decor was lovely. We had everything we needed including a high chair for the baby. My oldest son loved the office. Almost a sanctuary for him! The beach chairs and wagon were a great extra. And being so close to the beach and the shops in the historic district was perfect. We will definitely stay again in The Chesapeake Dream.

Fantastic Victorian house

  • 5 of 5

This home is well cared-for and it is well appointed. The house was very clean when we arrived and it obviously very well maintained. We enjoyed quiet breakfasts and on the porch where the only noise was the singing of the birds each morning. The beds are very nice and the 3rd floor suite is unbelievably quiet. The beach is only 1 block away and this is the wider nicer part of the beach. The town boat ramp is just about 5 minutes away by car and because the house is a corner lot, there was plenty of parking for our boat. The only thing I can think of to add to the house is outdoor closelines for hanging bathing suits and beach towels. I highly recommend this house for your next stay in Cape Charles. Don't forget to try the golf course' Coach House Tavern for at least one of your meals. Entree's are about $15 and the food is fantastic.

This is THE house to stay at in Cape Charles!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that this is the prettiest home in the Cape Charles Historic District! Myself, fiance, and 9 mos. old daughter enjoyed every minute of it along with my sister, her husband and our closet friends.We stayed in the third floor loft and it was so peaceful! The loft felt like it's own escape and was perfect for the three of us! The first full day we decided to hang in the backyard and lounge. It was secluded and very spacious and was perfect for sun bathing and even had some shade for my daughters pack and play! I recommend this home to all families! It had everything we needed and I could tell the owners take alot of pride in their home and I was happy to leave it just the way it was when we arrived. Thank you again for having us at the Chesapeake Dream! The beach could not have been closer! So convenient to everything!
