About Dan Eskridge

I grew up on the island and graduated from Tangier Combined School in a class of 12. After college (JMU), I moved to the Northern Neck of Virginia but have remained in touch with my roots. Whenever the Mimosa isn't rented, I can usually be found there, either doing maintenance, repairs or upgrades. And, sometimes I just go and do nothing but have fun.

Dan Eskridge purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Dan Eskridge chose Tangier

I needed a connection with my island family so when the home came on the market, I felt compelled to buy it. The central location and being off of the main drag made it attractive to me as a former islander. As a real estate agent, I went over to preview it and fell in love. Since buying it, I've replaced the roof, installed a heat pump, all new plumbing (Pex) and other upgrades. Oh, there is a guitar in the master BR closet, in case anyone is interested.

What makes this cottage unique

Besides the perfect location, central heat, ac, Dish, wi-fi, long distance phone service, the house is fully equipped with towels and linens, dishwasher, W/D, blender, PakNPlay, beach toys, crab nets and whatever guests sometimes leave behind. Basically, the house has everything that you need to set up housekeeping except toiletries, insect repellent (just in case) and food. The large living room and dining room allow elbow room. The two mimosa trees just off the front deck make it a cool and shady spot in summer. I enjoy sitting on the back steps and watching the beautiful sunsets, aircraft landing and taking off and, on clear days, the western shoreline of the Chesapeake is visible across the bay, beyond the homes on West Ridge. All and all, I love my island home and hope you will, too.
