About Christine

I'm Christine and my husband is John. We have 3 children Nicholas, Brooke and Jamie. We moved to Virginia Beach from New York 17 years ago. John has been an Electrician since the age of 16, had a business in New York and started a new business in Virginia Beach. Eleven years ago he was asked to do an electrical job in Cape Charles for a new home that was being built. Once he laid his eyes on that fishing pier that was it! That night he came home it was all he could talk about. Two days later we took a ride over with our fishing poles and spent the whole day there. We did some fishing, had lunch, browsed through the shops, walked around, looked at all the old houses and said some day we will have a house here! And here we are eleven years later, our dream came true.

Christine purchased this house in 2014

Why Christine chose Cape Charles

We looked at ALOT and I mean ALOT of homes for sale in Cape Charles. This one was one of the first that we looked at. We kept coming back to it but kept thinking there was something better like everyone does. But I'm so happy we choose this house. I love the fact that every bedroom has it own bathroom. The size of the bedrooms are very nice, so many houses had such small bedrooms. I like how open it is and the fact that it has a garage. Most homes here do not have a garage. After we put much sweat and hard work into it, it's just perfect for us!

What makes this house unique

We love the fact that this house is so close to the beach and just around the corner from the town it's just the perfect location. We did look at a few others that we liked but they were not as close to the beach or the town.

This is our second stay at The Lighthouse Inn! Not our last!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are amazing, personable, responsive, and friendly! The house is made to help you feel at home and comfortable without sacrificing style. It is really decorated beautifully with gorgeous colors. The kitchen has everything you need. There's just a great vibe there. The front porch is perfect for sitting and rocking, and the back deck is even better for morning coffee, hanging out, and grilling. The bedrooms sleep plenty and are very spacious. The master bedroom has the coolest small balcony. All very, very pretty. You get a sense that the owners really care about you having a wonderful experience while there! And we have!

Beautiful house close to amenities with friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 11 (2 families) loved our stay at the Lighthouse. The house was clean, beautifully decorated, and fully stocked with indoor and outdoor games, kitchen appliances, bikes, grills and a smoker. So many bathrooms and the kids were a little spoiled with TVs in every room. The owners really have thought of everything you might need to enjoy a sunny day at the beach or a rainy cold one! We loved being able to rent the golf cart for an additional fee as well. We would have loved to use the kayaks but we were worried about falling in the cold water during a chilly spring break visit in April. The location was perfect as it was close to town (restaurants and shopping) and the beach. We even walked and biked to the local park. Kelly’s Irish pub and the Shanty were our favorite local restaurants and reservations are suggested for large parties.

The owners were responsive and friendly. A wonderful first experience with VRBO! Thank you!

What a blessing!!

  • 5 of 5

We felt so blessed for the third year in a row to have stayed in another beautiful home in Cape Charles for our 3rd annual family getaway! We were blessed with the finest comforts of the Lighthouse Inn and fantastic weather!! We felt like we were in a 5 star B&B!!! We are already planning for next year and need to decide soon so we can stay at the Lighthouse Inn again. Thank You Christine and John for sharing your awesome home!

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with three other couples in late September for a friend's wedding at The Oyster Farm. We made a long weekend out of it and had an amazing time!

The house has great updates and everything you need for relaxing and entertaining. With the available golf cart, it's easy to zip to the beach or any of the great shops and places to eat on the main street. Cape Charles Coffee House for breakfast (good - but slow service), one of the handful of cafes for lunch, the Shanty for dinner and repeat.

Easy access to a great public beach!

Christine is a great host and I highly recommend!

Tennis Courts are located in the center of town bordering the park on Madison Ave. If you love horses, you must visit Pfeiffer Riding Stables a 150-Acre waterfront farm just up the road. They offer one hour horse back riding tours for $40.00 Very well worth the trip!
