About Christine

I'm Christine and my husband is John. We have 3 children Nicholas, Brooke and Jamie. We moved to Virginia Beach from New York 17 years ago. John has been an Electrician since the age of 16, had a business in New York and started a new business in Virginia Beach. Eleven years ago he was asked to do an electrical job in Cape Charles for a new home that was being built. Once he laid his eyes on that fishing pier that was it! That night he came home it was all he could talk about. Two days later we took a ride over with our fishing poles and spent the whole day there. We did some fishing, had lunch, browsed through the shops, walked around, looked at all the old houses and said some day we will have a house here! And here we are eleven years later, our dream came true.

Christine purchased this house in 2014

Why Christine chose Eastern Shore Virginia

We looked at ALOT and I mean ALOT of homes for sale in Cape Charles. This one was one of the first that we looked at. We kept coming back to it but kept thinking there was something better like everyone does. But I'm so happy we choose this house. I love the fact that every bedroom has it own bathroom. The size of the bedrooms are very nice, so many houses had such small bedrooms. I like how open it is and the fact that it has a garage. Most homes here do not have a garage. After we put much sweat and hard work into it, it's just perfect for us!

What makes this house unique

We love the fact that this house is so close to the beach and just around the corner from the town it's just the perfect location. We did look at a few others that we liked but they were not as close to the beach or the town.

Not a care in the world!

  • 5 of 5

This place was impeccable and had all, and I mean all, the creature comforts necessary to enjoy our week in Cape Charles. More than enough space, beds, and towels too. For a vacation rental, the kitchen had some nice pots/pans and glassware available for when we ate in. Rocking chairs in front of house provided some nice evening people watching and relaxation. Enjoyed the use of the beach chairs, wagon and bikes. We will defitinely be back again. They even had a new children's puzzle that our younger kids assembled on the one rainy day. Perfect place for a perfect getaway. Thank you Wegener's Lighthouse Inn.

The Lighthouse Inn and the "Bumblebee".

  • 5 of 5

We applaude all the work that was put into making this a wonderful, clean home. There was plenty of space for children and adults too. The kitchen was better equipped then any place that we have rented in the last 28+years that we have vacationed in. The quiet backyard was very inviting with beautiful flowers and foliage. The golf cart was an added favorite. It got beach supplies and little people to and from the beach with little effort. The golf cart was called the "Bumblebee" and it was the coolest cart in town. Thank you Christine and John for making this a great vacation home away from home.

The perfect vacation spot and home!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Cape Charles every summer for vacation and stayed in a different home for the past 5 years or so. When we walked into The Lighthouse Inn, I knew this was the one we'd return to. It has all the amenities, is in the perfect location to the beach, Mason Avenue to shop and eat and has the most amazing and quaint backyard. We all truly felt like we were on vacation, but it felt like a home. The owners have it decorated to make it feel as though it is your home away from home. Thanks to Christine & John for sharing your home with everyone. We will be back!

Wonderful house; wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had the most wonderful trip to Cape Charles and the Lighthouse! This house is so comfortable and inviting. It has plenty of room for our family plus a large living room/dining area where we can all be together. The house is located perfectly within walking distance to the beach but also right into town. Christine and John do a fabulous job making sure their home is the perfect place away from it all and making us feel so welcome! We love this place and it's owners and hope we get to keep coming back every year. If we could, we'd spend all summer here!

Tennis Courts are located in the center of town bordering the park on Madison Ave. If you love horses, you must visit Pfeiffer Riding Stables a 150-Acre waterfront farm just up the road. They offer one hour horse back riding tours for $40.00 Very well worth the trip!
