Overview

Chincoteague Island House Rental Photos and Description

Directly On Chincoteague Channel Overlooking Chincoteague Bay

The Moorings North is an unique architecturally designed luxury 5 bedroom home in the heart of Chincoteague Island, VA. The house is elegantly decorated and has mesmerizing panoramic views of Chincoteague Bay. It is conveniently located in walking distance to small shops, a coffee house, and restaurants.

This upscale home is an ideal waterfront vacation spot for families as well as for couples who are seeking a romantic getaway.

Be our guest at Moorings North and enjoy your vacation in a beautiful setting with nearby award winning beaches and wildlife refuges.

Two-story porches grace the front of this dynamic house custom designed for your comfort by local architectural designer Richard Vesely. You will enter a tiled, light filled two-and-a-half story high entrance hall with a grand staircase, and French chandelier. Ascending the stairs, you’ll be delighted along the way by the views to the water from three towering windows, or take the convenient windowed elevator to the living level on the upper floor.

With the reverse floor plan the upper level is the main living level including the great room with beverage bar, kitchen, master bedroom, and a full bathroom.

Arriving in the great room, you’re sure to notice the ravishing Brazilian Tigerwood flooring, but your eye (and your heart) will quickly be drawn to what you’re here for: a wall of nine windows will open up sweeping views of sun-diamonds dancing on the sparkling waters of Chincoteague Bay. Stunning, simply stunning!

The great room is combined with the dining area and an open concept luxury kitchen, which invites you to entertain yourself, your family and your friends. The towering cathedral ceiling in the great room will give you a sense of space and open feeling on hot summer days as well as a cozy atmosphere by the gas fireplace during your relaxing winter vacation. You’ll enjoy preparing locally caught seafood in the fully appointed gourmet kitchen. Two ovens, warming drawer, microwave, dishwasher, granite counter tops and more are waiting for you. While some gather around the large screen plasma TV on the fireplace wall, one or two may prepare drinks at the Carrara marble beverage center.

The spacious tile-floored kitchen with its cherry cabinets and granite counter tops is sure to be a popular spot to entertain. There is plenty of room to pitch-in for cocktail and canapé, or prepare a delicious supper of fresh seafood purchased at the town dock.

Everyone will gravitate to the welcoming French country dining table centered under the gentle glow of the Provincial iron chandelier. Notice, too, how the dining area floor of Mexican Travertine is set into the hardwood flooring.

While the house has two climate control systems, there will be days when you will want to open the French doors leading from the dining area to the columned, covered Gazebo-in-The-Sky: outdoor relaxation sublime high above the sparkling waters. Here, it’s likely you will linger (probably everyday) while the sky turns indescribable shades of magenta and crimson-orange as the timeless sun descends into the welcoming bay. In this amazing outdoor living space you’ll find a gas grill to bring even your cooking outdoors.

Up an intriguing spiral stair from the Main Level is the Tower-Hide-Away with two additional twin beds, just right for the young, and the young-at-heart. The view from the highest point of the house over the waters are indeed again breathtaking. Tower guests shares bath on Main Level.

At the end of your day on Assateague Island’s pristine ocean beach (or perhaps you climbed to the top of the lighthouse?) you’ll be ready to enjoy a great night’s rest in your private quarters on the Lower Level. Because there are two richly carpeted master suites, each equally tasteful decorated rooms with king-size bed, granite top make-up vanity, walk in closet, full tiled bathroom with separate tub, and walk in shower, perhaps there won’t be any trouble over ‘who-gets-to-sleep-where’.

A word about the bathrooms: one has a large Kohler soaking tub, the other one has a Kohler whirlpool tub for two. Did we mention that each of these suites has a private balcony over the water?

On this level there’s a room with two twin beds, and an ensuite bath with water view window in the shower.

As many of the houses on the coastline Moorings North is elevated, which will give you extra storage space on a partially enclosed ground level as well as a Weber charcoal grill and direct water access. Tie your up to 65’ long boat up in deep water at our bulk-headed dock right there. Catch your all time fresh crabs and fish right from the dock. How much fun will it be for children and grown-ups to provide your seafood dinner right from the water in front of your vacation residence? You hardly want to leave your vacation spot right on the water of Chincoteague Channel, but in case you would like to spend a day at the beach, we’ll provide beach chairs, sun umbrella and boogie boards for you. When you come back from a beautiful day on the beach, enjoy the convenience of an outdoor shower. From the ground level there is an elevator entrance handy for handling luggage and bringing in the groceries. This elevator makes all floors handicapped accessible.

Still some energy left? Take one of the bikes and explore the many attractions Chincoteague Island has to offer.

We will do whatever is in our hands to make your vacation time at Moorings North exceptional, comfortable, and unforgettable. We welcome you to our well-loved home on Chincoteague Island!

About Claudia and Claus Grill

After a couple of visits to the island we absolutely fell in love with Chincoteague. We, the 'Grill-Family' from Chester Springs, PA, were always looking for beautiful relaxing locations, to spend time with the kids on the beach, at the same time having the most quiet and friendly environment to reenergize from our busy life. We found it with Chincoteague Island and were entranced with the beauty, the 'million dollar views' and the friendliness of the people on this island.

So when we started looking for houses, we did it with a spirit of it being our second home and not a business investment primarily. We have very high standards of excellence and customer satisfaction with an overarching desire to make our guests feel like home. We believe in the importance of personal touch and caring in all we do. That's why we also decided to manage the property personally, knowing the local staff maintaining the house and being in direct contact with our guests. The Moorings North was the perfect fit for us: Beautifully furnished with unbelievable views, luxurious look & feel. We are committed to constantly further upgrading this already beautiful high end home and are proud to share it with you.

Spectacular setting, spectacular house. Well equipped home with open great room, spacious bedrooms each with bath, and stylish architecture. Living area looks out over the bay, where you get gorgeous sunsets. Claudia Grill has equipped the home with everything you need. We entertained 18 easily for our family reunion, even with scorching hot weather limiting outdoor use. Bikes, beach equipment, boat mooring,cable, Apple and Amazon tv, fully stocked kitchen. Our best rental ever. Claudia is available to help with whatever is needed.

Moorings North is the perfect vacation destination!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and twin sons (age 25) enjoyed a week (6/26/16 - 7/3/16) at Moorings North located in Chincoteague, Virginia. I have been visiting the island for over 35 years. We have stayed at a variety of places over the years and have always enjoyed our visit, but, this vacation was just exceptional......in large measure due to our choice of venue. Moorings North is, without question, the most beautiful home we have ever rented. Claudia and Claus Grill have gone above and beyond to ensure their guests are absolutely comfortable and have no reason to run to the store for anything, unless you like to cook, of course. And cook, we did. The kitchen is so well equipped. There wasn't one utensil or device I missed from home. We loved dining inside on rainy nights and on more pleasant evenings, outside on the deck that adjoins the living areas. The home is decorated in perfect taste and just, immaculate. I could go on and on but suffice it to say, my family and I recommend Moorings North to anyone expecting everything only the best.

An absolutely fabulous place to enjoy a vacation with your family on Chincoteague Island.

  • 5 of 5

Of all the rental properties we've stayed at over the last 30 years, this is by far the most exquisite. The layout of the home and the attention to detail inside and out was far and above what we had expected. Everything from the user friendly kitchen, to the bar area, to the outside dock and fire pit, as well as the comfortable beds and outside dining and seating area were absolutely beautiful. The family is already requesting we rent this place again next year. A big 'Thank You' to Claudia and Claus.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Moorings North is a haven to all! Nestled on Chincoteague Bay, its vast third-floor windows provide an ever-changing view of nature that soothes the soul , just what we needed after a stressful winter. The Grill's beautiful home also soothes the body with exceptional furnishings, abundant suites and bedrooms, and great places to relax, including a third-floor gazebo and water-side patio, complete with hammock! If you are lucky enough to be able to rent here, you will be greeted and pampered by your thoughtful hosts and their magnificent home. I hope we can return -- and soon!

Gorgeous, spacious rental

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for a weekend with a group of girlfriends, and it was a fantastic experience. The home is beautiful and well kept, and the views from the balcony and living room/kitchen area are as awesome as they look in the photos! Even though I reviewed the listing before we left, when we first got there, I kept surprising myself by finding more and more bedrooms - sleeping space is very ample. We had everything we needed available to us, and a lot was in walking distance from the house, too. Claudia and Claus were extremely kind and helpful at every turn as well, and provided clear info and instructions for everything. I highly recommend Moorings North - a step above the common rental experience!
