Description of the Onancock vacation home rental
Gorgeous waterfront property directly overlooking expansive Onancock Creek, largest of the Chesapeake Bay tributaries, AND only two blocks from the adorable town of Onancock. Ideally situated, it is designed for a peaceful and quiet escape as there is no TV or landline phone (although there is a TV for movie viewing and computer wifi) There is, however, a huge covered deck 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 warf. Park your car and leave it!

The house was built in 1999 and is spacious and well laid out. 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.

Our dock moors our Maycraft motor boat and canoe. These can take you in 15 minutes to remote state-protected beaches where you will be the only ones around for miles! In town, kayaks can be rented as well. The dock is also great for crabbing and the back yard is large enough to accommodate any sporting event imaginable.

In addition, we have the unique opportunity to extend to our full-paying guests access to the amenities at the Eastern Shore Yacht and Country Club (15 min drive). Our guests may use the pool for only $5.00 per person and may pay to use the golf course, dining room etc. Also, larger boats can use the country club slips for a nominal fee. This is a very special and generous offer on behalf of the country club and we are proud to share these privileges with our guests.
Area Information
Onancock and The Eastern Shore have a combination of history and beauty that is unmatched. It is truly like stepping back in time where small towns ruled and you could laze away a day sitting on a porch.

Within driving distance of the property are two golf courses in Cape Charles (30 minutes), two beaches (one in Chincoteague where the wild horses roam and a great one for young chidden in Cape Charles), the famous Chincoteague/Assauteague preserve (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.

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.

    We love to travel and visit friends as well as welcome friends into our home. Renting our homes is a way for us to share our excitement about places with others. We have travelled all over the world with our sons (and pets! ), so we knew what we were looking for in a family vacation house. We wanted...
