Overview

About the property

Steps away from the water, friendly town

The Parsonage was built in 1836 and was restored between 2001 and 2010. The house has a large front porch with rockers and a table for coffee or lunch. There are three bedrooms on the second level. The master bedroom has a queen bed with en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. Guest room#1 has a queen bed with private sink that opens into a shared bathroom. Guestroom#2 (Loft) has a sleep number full sized bed with shared bathroom. The large guest bathroom includes walk-in shower and claw foot soaking tub. A washer and dryer are in a separate room.

The main level of the house includes a parlor a game room with television, couch and foosball table, puzzles and books. The kitchen is an open plan with dining room and sun room. There is also a bathroom with a shower on the main living level.

The house was renovated following a fire so everything is new. Bathrooms are all ceramic tile and the kitchen has granite counter tops with an eat in table and a built in bar for gathering around. The kitchen contains everything you will need including basic pantry items. Back deck has a grill and two sheds that contain bikes for your use to get around town even though everything is in walking distance.

The Wharf is only steps away where you can rent kayaks, bikes, fish or crab from the dock or take the ferry to visit Tangier Island for the day. There is a public boat ramp at the same location. If you have a boat there is so much to explore. Onancock Creek is about 4 miles long and opens up into the Chesapeake Bay. The area is pristine with secluded beaches all up and down the coast.

If the ocean is your thing, Assateague National Park is about a 35 minute drive to the North. It is the closest beach with surf and easy parking. The town of Chincoteague is a fun day trip.

The town of Onancock has a charm all its own. It has a small town feel where your kids can walk down the street and go fishing and you don't have to worry about them.

About Kathi Williams

We have lived in Northern Virginia for 35 years. Onancock is our weekend getaway. We spent nearly 10 years (of weekends) renovating the house after a fire. The house originally belonged to the historic Cokesbury Church and was the home of the minister. We got caught up in the story and decided to renovate instead of tearing it down. It contains the original heart pine floors in the master bedroom and the beams on the main floor are original. We filled it with some our favorite things, some antiques, some new furniture and just love coming here.

Kathi Williams purchased this house in 2001

Why Kathi Williams chose Eastern Shore Virginia

It is a wonderful getaway where you can let your hair down and relax! We love to cycle, kayak and boat so this was the perfect place for us.

What makes this house unique

You can sit on the front porch in a rocking chair and watch the fishing boats go up and down the creek while you drink your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail. Whether you are a friend or a stranger, neighbors wave as they walk by. In the summer, you can buy fresh fish right across the street. There is also a farmer's market on Saturdays where you can purchase fresh picked produce and some local seafood. We love that the restaurants are only steps away. The sunsets are beautiful sitting on the deck at Mallards Restaurant.

Beautiful House.....Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely beautiful. It was warm and inviting and just made you feel right at home. The house is located in a quiet area of a very charming town. We were lucky enough to be there on a Saturday when the area has a Farmers Market sale In the center of town. The sale was close enough to walk to. Would definitely recommend to anyone and hope to return to this house next year.

Peace of Heaven on Earth - The pictures do not do this house justice

  • 5 of 5

The character in this house is so lovely. Just minutes walk to everything. Only time we got in the car was to drive to the Food Lion (just 2.5 miles away) and to launch the boat (steps away). This town is perfection - Small Town USA. Wonderful people, restaurants, shops. We were so grateful to be able to bring our dogs as this town is very dog friendly. We adored sitting on the front porch in the afternoon. Other favorites the sunroom where we could listen to music, read, and watch the dogs in the backyard. The owners were very attentive - even to my inquires regarding their wonderful story of this home renovation. Everything you need is there for you in this very clean historic home. A week before we stayed here I had never heard of Onancock, VA - now it is one of my favorites!

Allure of the Eastern Shore!

  • 5 of 5

This rental certainly met our expectations, and I will vouch for the proprietor any day. The accommodations were tasteful and spacious. Even the weather cooperated! It was a classic family getaway. The reason I selected this place above the others was the straightforwardness of the owner. For example, they have one price every day. Not 20 different prices based on how much they figure they can gouge you and get away with. More importantly, no bait & switch BS like some owners who sell you one place, but tell you at the last minute they rented it to some other fool who paid twice as much, but to show you how much they value your business they're gonna let you stay in their garage. Their pet policy is also simple and straightforward. These people love the place. They have an album you can look at showing how it was before they restored it. The transformation is astonishing! This rental is a class act and I wish them nothing but continued success...

Charming Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this charming house. The overall feel was very warm and welcoming. We did have to move some of the breakable items out of harms way with my 1 year old running around, but even that was not nearly as difficult as I expected. The house was very clean and well-maintained.

Beautiful Home in Delightful Town

  • 5 of 5

The Parsonage has been lovingly and sympathetically restored and is a beautiful home which we were privileged to share. We only stayed two nights and wish we had stayed longer. Kathi is great to deal with and provided lots of information on the area before we arrived. There was an extremely useful pack with further helpful information in the house.

The pictures do not do the house justice and it is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need.

I fully recommend this delightful property and hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

PS. We dined at Mallards and although Johnny Mo, the singing chef was not there, had an excellent meal in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. In contrast our experience in Bizottos was stuffy and we were rushed as they were closing at 9 so weren't offered the dessert menu. The food was OK but the place was pretentious.

Historic Onancock is a lovely small town that is family friendly. Onancock Wharf is steps from the house where you can rent a kayak, fish or launch a boat at the public boat ramp. The Chesapeake Bay is a 4 mile paddle with beaches along the way. The town hosts artists and galleries, shops, antiques and wonderful restaurants. If you like to cycle, the Eastern Shore is flat and fun to cycle short or long distances. Waterfront is found at the end of many roads on this small peninsula. The Bay is on one side and the ocean is on the other side. There is a movie theater in town and a playhouse featuring live performances.
