Eastern Shore Virginia House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, with water view, 3.5 Baths, large porches, kayaks, motor boat

Gorgeous waterfront property directly overlooking tranquil Onancock Creek, and only one block from the adorable town of Onancock. No wonder Budget Magazine recently voted Onancock 'The Coolest Small Town in America!'

Recently decorated top to bottom by award-winning design team JRML of Norfolk, VA, The Shore House is a gorgeous, peaceful escape. The huge covered deck stretches along the back of the house overlooking the water where you can watch the herons, egrets and osprey to your heart's content. There is also a library tucked amidst the four upstairs bedrooms that overlooks the water and is fully stocked with a wide variety of books. If you want more action you are a short walk from the town of Onancock which has antique stores, wonderful restaurants, a movie theater, a drama theater, a gourmet food/wine shop as well as a town wharf. Park your car and leave it!

The house was built in 1999 by a builder for his family and therefore the lay-out is bright, spacious and well designed. The first floor of the house accommodates the master bedroom/bath suite, a full laundry room, a fully equipped kitchen a large family room with a game table, a formal living and dining room. The second floor has two kids’ rooms with two twins each and a Jack 'n Jill bath as well as two queen rooms that have a separate bath.

The house features free Wifi/ Internet and a brand new TV multi media room with dozens of HD Comcast channels and Internet apps! A Bluetooth enabled Stereo, allows for streaming of any portable device.

Our dock moors a 20 foot Maycraft motor boat, canoe and kayak. These can take you in 15 minutes to remote state-protected beaches where you will be the only ones around for miles! At Malards, 5 minutes away more kayaks can be rented as well. The dock is also great for crabbing. The back yard is large enough to accommodate large picnics, weddings, family reunions, sports and games.

Within driving distance are two golf courses in Cape Charles (30 minutes), the famous Chincoteague/Assauteague preserve where horses roam on the beaches (60 minutes), several places to charter boats in Wachapreague ('The Flounder Capital of the World', 15 mins) and in Cape Charles. Wallops Visitor Center, the up and coming star of the NASA rocket launching pads, is a 40 min drive north. There are also two grocery stores, fast food restaurants and other restaurants within a five minute drive.

In addition, our summer, full-paying guests will have access to the amenities at the Eastern Shore Yacht and Country Club (15 min drive). Guests of ours may use the pool for only $5.00 per person and may pay to use the golf course, dining room etc. This is a very special and generous offer on behalf of the country club.

There is nothing like the Eastern Shore, the largest stretch of undeveloped waterfront on the Eastern Seaboard. The Shore House puts you in the heart of it all.

Keywords: Waterfront, luxury, large, new, spacious home, motor boat, kayak. Perfect for a family reunion or getaway.

Wonderful property that gives you a taste of living on the Eastern Shore

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house in Onancock!. The house itself is extremely well appointed, in great shape, comfortable beds, spectacular screened porch, many places to hang out and a well appointed kitchen. The only ding is slow Internet speeds (almost unusable, so if you need to work, you need to be aware... we used our cell phones to tether and ate through our data plan, but it was worth it for the house!!). Loved having the grill, access to the boat, the kayak, and all the games! It was a wonderful family vacation for our family of 7.

Onancock is wonderful. You MUST have the cream filled donuts at the Corner Bakery... it just might change your life :-). Also took a boat to Tangier Island - picks you up at the town dock less than a 1/4 mile away from the house.

You can't go wrong booking this property, and hope to visit again!

Comfortable and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

House is nicely decorated with plenty of space. We went to our trip of family and friends with 7 adults and 2 kids and a baby and space was plenty, there was even an unused room. New TV's, a small library, board games and a fully stocked kitchen were awesome. One of the best parts of the house is the big screened porch in the back of the house overlooking the creek, perfect for having breakfast or playing board games. We used the boat and it was a lot of fun. Overall a great experience. Also, property manager was great at answering all my questions in a timely matter and even refunding my boat deposit really quick, great service.

Paradise in Onancok

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely perfect. We were visiting Onancick for Thanksgiving along with 30 other family members. My family rented this house and it was hard to pull ourselves off the deck to go to our Aunts home for all the festivities. It's the kind of place that you reminisce about long after the vacation is over. Can't wait to go back!

Charming and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home was clean, nicely decorated and was in a perfect location. We could relax or get loud without worry. We dined in for most of our meals and found the essential cookware with no problems. We also got use from the boat and canoe. As promised, we found a small 'private beach' that was perfect for the grandchildren. Just a note for my fellow northerners, try the fried pickles at the Fairgrounds. Thank you Laura for spectacular week.
