About Jack Forgosh

I fell in love with cape Charles when I first visited this historic town in 2008. This home is my second vacation rental property in this community. I also own and rent The Sand Hills Retreat just a few miles south of town. This beach house is centrally located in downtown Cape Charles just 80 yds from the center of town, its rail yard and the town marina. the beach is but 3 short blocks away. We have Kelly's Irish Pub, The Shanty, Cape Charles Coffee House. Breezes Day Spa is just 30 yds from our front door. I am very proud of how we renovated this Victorian Lady. Its a historic house within a historic town, with great citizens who have lived on the Eastern Shore of VA for generations.

Jack Forgosh purchased this house in 2015

Beautiful renovation close to the beach and the downtown area of Cape Charles

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here with my husband and two kids, ages 9 and 14. House was beautifully renovated, very clean, and we were quite comfortable there. The proximity to the beach (3 block walk) and the small downtown area (1 block walk) were perfect for our trip. Because we flew to the area we really appreciated having beach chairs, umbrella, and cart available to use. Having beach towels available would have been nice (if they were there we didn't find them!), as traveling with those is a bit of a pain. Kitchen was well appointed and we made many meals there. We stayed in the right side unit, which is a 2 bedroom, and the only thing we noticed that might register as a complaint is that the left-side unit includes rooms in the attic space, so it was a little loud when people were moving around above us. Overall that was not really a problem (our neighbors were relatively quiet even though they were a big group) and we would definitely recommend this listing to others. We found everyone in Cape Charles to be kind and accommodating, and the beach was fantastic! Very warm shallow waters- perfect if you have small children or just want a lazy beach vacation.

Everything we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a great location. The proximity to the beach is fabulous, the proximity to the central business district is even better. We loved the expansive front porch and back deck. The outdoor shower was crucial for post-beach rinse offs. Everything inside the house was updated and the furniture was very comfortable. I highly recommend this property.

Great location, beautiful and clean house!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, just blocks from all the stores and restaurants and only 3 blocks from the beach. House could not have been cleaner, more well taken care of and perfectly stocked. We would highly recommend it to anyone.
