About Clelia Cardano sheppard

I am a Plein Air artist, married to John for 37 years, we have 4 grown children. John and I met in Italy were we married and when leaving my country he promised me we would one day have an Italian style house on the water! He kept his promise and designed the house!

Clelia Cardano sheppard purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Clelia Cardano sheppard chose Eastern Shore Virginia

We were looking for a quiet place to do art, bring up our children ( homeschooled them) and be close to family and work.After having lived in Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Virginia Beach we finally put our roots down on the Eastern Shore which blew us away for the beauty and peace.

What makes this cottage unique

The most stunning aspect of the Cottage is the view. It is located high up on a bluff so guests feel as if they are on a ship. The cottage is surrounded by park -like grounds that include seasoned plants and flowers , a waterfall over a Koi-fish pond and quiet shaded spots in a secret garden atmosphere. Our guests enjoy swimming boating and beach combing at stone's throw away.

A quiet and restful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was just what my husband and I wanted (and needed) for our week long vacation. Small but very comfortable and beautifully furnished. Rural setting was perfect for our morning walks; very close to Kiptopeke and Eastern Virginia Shore Nature Reserves. Nice private beach - sandy beach made wading and swimming very easy.

Other plus: beautiful gardens outside the cottage.

This cottage is perfect for two people and a romantic getaway. Also excellent for anyone interested in nature, bird watching, and exploring the villages off Hwy 13.

Secluded cottage with outstanding views and beach.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is adjacent to a large Italianate home with exquisite and well maintained gardens and grounds. It is cozy, but has all the comforts: an adjustable queen sized bed, a fully functional kitchen and eating area, a stand-up shower in the bathroom and a washer/dryer. There's a TV and the owner has supplied many books and games for guests to utilize. The main attraction is the private patio which can be accessed through the sliding doors, with its gas grill, and which leads to the gardens on the bluff with your own viewing perch under the trees. The view is astounding, all the way from the bay bridge in a sweeping arc that offers you a vista of the lower bay with the ocean-going boats at anchor, the crab-fishing boats tending their cages just off the coast, and the occasional luxury yacht slipping by. You can access a private beach area through fairly steep stairs that may be a challenge for those with reduced mobility, but the beach itself allows for sunbathing, swimming or just exploring the little pools and nooks among the breakwater rocks. The Cottage's location is within a short drive to the restaurants and stores of Cape Charles, and would be a good base for exploration further up the peninsula.

Photos do not do it justice. Loved not only the cottage, but also the extensive, gorgeous gardens and views and the beautiful, private little beach.

  • 5 of 5

Can't recommend this comfy little paradise enough! The room is super cozy and the grounds are gorgeous! We had romantic ocean sunset views right from the bed, and the private beach was icing on the cake! We fell in love with the views and can't wait to go back.

weekend hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband booked the cottage as a surprise for me and it was wonderful! Beautiful place, nice cottage that is perfect for a nice get away. We loved sitting every morning & evening watching the sunrise & set over the water. The gardens are breathtaking. We enjoyed a quiet weekend and will definitely book again. Highly recommend.

Beautiful, private little hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our five night stay at this lovely little cottage was cut short by one night, but my husband and I certainly enjoyed our time while we were here. The pictures do not show the updated version of the cottage, some of which include a beautiful light blue color to the walls, bookshelves full of books, an upholstered headboard for the queen size bed, and more. The gorgeous view of the bay from the two full glass sliding doors is unbeatable! Unfortunately, the weather was not at its best while we stayed, but looking forward to another time when we can enjoy the beach and outdoor exploring a little more.
