Bay View Cottage Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well cared for. The beach access was really nice and fun for our granddaughter. The furnishings were comfortable and adequate for our needs. Proximity to stores for shopping and ice cream make the location very desirable. We very much enjoyed our time here and recommend it for others as a great place to get away from it all.

Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend planning a trip to Smith Beach and staying at Bay View Cottage! The private beach is a fantastic place to spend time with friends or family and the sunsets are hands down breathtaking! You could simply spend the whole vacation relaxing or planning adventurers in the near by towns. Such has kayaking, paddle boarding, wine tours, shopping or eating at local restaurants. This is my favorite place to be and can't wait until my next trip!

Excellent Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to unwind, I highly recommend staying here. The absolutely gorgeous sunsets and great small town experience is well worth it. Your trip can be as active or relaxed as you would like. The area offers antique shopping, winery tours, and kayak adventures to name a few. I also highly recommend eating at Sting Rays, Exmore Diner, and The Shanty during your trip! You can also simply walk out the back door to the beach and enjoy sitting by the water all day. I can't wait until my next trip!

Peaceful and beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained on a private beach. It is the ideal spot to take a break from it all and enjoy a peaceful and quite spot with your family and friends. The house offers an amazing view of sunsets every night. You can take a short trip to Cape Charles to get Brown Dog ice cream or go shopping at unique stores. I can't wait to go back. It's such a special place you have to see for yourself.

Relaxation at its best

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Bayview cottage for many years. The location is true Eastern Shore with the Chesapeake Bay in your backyard. We always take one morning to have breakfast at the Exmore Diner, drive into Cape Charles for Brown Dog ice cream, lunch at the Shanty and shopping in downtown Cape Charles. If we have access to a boat or kayaks, then an afternoon on the sandbar right off the beach is a must. We can always find souvenir conch shells to take home. We also try to take a day to travel up the shore to go to Assateague Island, a gorgeous beach on the Atlantic with a glimpse of the wild horses that live there. Then we end the day in the screened-in porch watching the most incredible sunsets you will ever see. My camera roll is full of them. It's a great place for families of all ages!
