One Bedroom Cottage On Our Secluded Saltwater Peninsula On VA's Eastern Shore
Pam Barefoot & Jim Green
About Pam Barefoot & Jim Green
We are both retired and decided to share our secluded waterfront property with travelers who seek peace, nature and privacy. We're located on a cove off a larger saltwater creek leading to the Chesapeake Bay. We enjoy camping in our small Winnebago diesel motorhome with our standard poodle, and we have a full hookup available if you need to park a small RV by the cottage (small surcharge). When we travel, we seek privacy, fishing opportunities and a chance to make new friends. We've fished in Alaska, Chile, Scotland, New Zealand, Costa Rica, British Columbia, Bimini and many other spots (including a cargo ship in French Polynesia) and would love to swap fishing stories with you.
Pam Barefoot & Jim Green purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Pam Barefoot & Jim Green chose Exmore
It's an oasis in the middle of nowhere! Once you get here, it is unlikely you'll want to leave, if you enjoy solitude and nature. We're here if you need advice on things to see or do. We'll even loan you an egg or help you make crab cakes! Our cottage is fully equipped for cooking. All you need to bring is clothing (we have bathrobes and extra jackets) and food/beverages (we supply some initial breakfast items, water, coffee & tea pods, spices and some condiments).
What makes this Cottage unique
If you want to sit back, commune with nature, relax and not hear any traffic, this is the place. Our sociable standard poodle will visit you on the cottage porch and loves hanging out on the dock or chasing balls, but only if you feel like it!

Great Vacation at Baytop
My partner and I had a great vacation at Pam and Jim’s cottage and highly recommend it. Pam and Jim not only have a great property in a nice location with many attractions and activities to do, but also are genuinely great people to meet and know. Pam and Jim are wonderful hosts who are incredibly accommodating, have great suggestions and advice for activities in the area, and very responsive to any questions you may have. I would definitely stay here again and encourage anyone to consider their cottage for a vacation.
Little slice of paradise
This is a little slice of paradise. Plenty of things to do, or a perfect place to do nothing at all. Hosts Pam and Jim friendly and hospitable. Definitely want to come back.
My husband and I come to the eastern shore every year for a week, with no kids 🙂�, just to fish, relax and unwind. This place was by far the nicest place the 2 of us have ever stayed. There was plenty of parking and room for our 24’ boat. The house was perfect for two people and completely stocked with anything you could possibly need. The property and view were incredible. Pam and Jim were the best hosts....we just wish we could have spent more time with them. The fishing and weather for the week were incredible, so there just didn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to enjoy everything. We can’t wait to come back!!!
All that f
ishing paid off! Thanks so much for sharing three different types, having the Spanish Mackerel tonight!
A Memorable Vacation
This is probably the best equipped residence I ever stayed in at ANY destination. Their attention to detail is impeccable. Both of them are will to help or teach if you are trying to do something that you are not familiar with. The cottage, pool and grounds were very clean and comfortable. We will definitely return.
Enjoyed your visit!
A Fantastic Place and Host!
We fell in love! The description of this absolutely wonderful cottage does not do it justice.
My husband and I were looking for a peaceful, quite getaway and this truly met every aspect. Pam and Jim were absolutely wonderful. They greeted us, answered every and all questions we had about the area. Helped in starting us up in crabbing and were just wonderful people.
The cottage is on there property. There is a beautiful pool between the house and cottage. The extremely short walk from the cottage to their dock is so beautifully. We went out there almost every night. We used their canoe and went all around. It’s so quite, peaceful and beautiful. Everywhere you look is nature at its best! The crabbing was so much fun. We didn’t care if we caught any or not. Just being on their dock, talking, crabbing and enjoying the outdoors was great.
The cottage, and I use that word but it truly does not do it justice.
You walk in and it is extremely clean, decorated wonderfully and absolutely charming. Everything you could possibly need is provided above and beyond! Pam and Jim placed so much thought, love and themselves in this beautiful home away from home that you could possibly need. This is not to mention all the top notch extras that they provide.
We will with out a doubt be back to this dream place.
And I also have to add that Bella the most sweet, wonderful and fun dog made every day! She is such a sweetie!
All I can say is if your looking you truly must book!!
So glad Bella fell in love with you! Enjoyed your visit, please return!
We're within 45 minutes of Chincoteague and Assateague Island, where the wild ponies roam on the beach. Cape Charles is about half an hour south, featuring interesting shops, restaurants and a public saltwater beach on the Chesapeake. Quaint Onancock is 22 miles north and has lots of restaurants and unique shops. Chatham Vineyards is 20 minutes away and you can also take advantage of their kayak winery tour. Many people get to our property and never leave while they're here. Local ecotour guides are available along with kayak and paddleboard operators.
