Thanksgiving at the Beach!

  • 4 of 5

Seashell Cottage was perfect size for our group of 7 adults and 3 dogs. It had everything we needed. Very quiet area, 1 minute walk to the beach, 5 minute walk to downtown. Cape Charles is a quaint small town,with good choices of restaurants and unique shops. Would stay at Seashell again.

Note to future travelers: Though not an issue for us, If you are using the third floor loft, you must walk through the master Suite to access.

One of our most memorable vacations

  • 5 of 5

Seashell Cottage was a home away from home. From the moment my family and I walked through the doors of Seashell Cottage, our worries were left behind as we toured each and every beautiful room with it's own exquisite decor. Our boys immediately claimed the "fun" room on the 3rd floor with the two side by side beds. The view from the window was enough to fall in love with the room itself, but, our family also enjoyed some family air hockey matches as well! Seashell Cottage had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and welcoming. Cape Charles has the most breath taking sunsets! Nothing spells relaxation then sitting on the 2nd floor deck of seashell cottage and watching the sun rise while drinking my morning cup of coffee . Many laughs and good meals were shared with my family and I on the porch of seashell cottage after spending the day floating in the rafts at the beach. We attended the local Farmers Market in town as well as had delicious pizza from DeadRise Pies. This was by far, one of our most memorable and enjoyable vacations, so much so, our boys ask when they can go back to Seashell Cottage and the beautiful Cape Charles.

Owner's Response: What a great review. We really appreciate it because much effort has been put into Seashell Cottage to fully equip, furnish and decorate it. We can't think of anything to add except that the famed Cape Charles beach is only a half block walk away from Seashell Cottage and adjacent to the beach is the Cape Charles Fun Pier open day and night.

Perfect Family Vacation in a Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Seashell Cottage. It was the perfect size house that came with EVERYTHING you could possibly need for an amazing stay in Cape Charles. It is steps away from the water and was the ideal location to watch the sunset over the water and enjoy family time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review. I hope you will be our guest again. We continually try to update and improve our quest's vacation experience, and so does the town of Cape Charles. For example, the town just completed the nature trail, together with street lamps, that winds around the town and connects into the boardwalk at the beach.

Close to beach and was plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I rated a 4 was because I would have loved to sleep in but the sun was so bright in the master bedroom. So be prepared to wake up when the sun comes up haha. Otherwise it was a nice place.

Small town, Large Memories

  • 5 of 5

My daughters, grandchildren and I had the extreme pleasure to stay in this wonderful home for a week. They say it is well equipped, that is a gross understatement, it has everything you could ever want and them some. We spent many relaxing hours on the porches when we weren't at the beach that is only a VERY short walk from the house. The beach was so great for the kids, calm warm waters, no crowds, friendly people. We rented a golf cart and rode around the town of Cape Charles. It is like you went back in time when life was simple and not such a rat race. The shops down town had wonderful unique things. And the eatery's were all so good. The only thing keeping me from going back next year is my desire to always try new places. But when I run out of them I will be back and without a doubt I would stay at the Seashell Cottage.

About Eastern Shore Vacations Inc.

John and I came to Cape Charles in search of our dream retirement home. The moment we arrived in Cape Charles we fell in love with the area. The town offers a quaint southern hospitality with the charm of the Bay to make this location an ideal spot for an enjoyable get-away. The variety of restaurants in town and the Marina just round the corner offers an array of water activities, while the beach and water is only footsteps away. The Sea Shell Cottage is our pride and joy and we hope that you as our guests will have a comfortable stay because while you are here, 'You are Family'! Our goal is to please you with all the comforts of home and to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We would very much like to hear your comments on your experience and will make every effort to improve any issues you may have. We currently reside in Doylestown, PA. We feel confident that the management team at Blue Heron Realty Company will be readily available to you should you have questions or need anything during your stay at the Sea Shell Cottage. We hope your stay is a wonderful experience.
