About the property

Elegant Beachfront home with a great Private Beach and a long walking beach

Breathtaking! is how most of our guests describe the sand dune drive in to our home and their first sight of our home nestled in on the high sand dune. When you see it, you will understand why we named it HIDEAWAY ON THE BAY. Fabulous! Is how our guests also describe the broad, sandy beach, only steps from the home, and the beach deck next to the beach. Not only do you have your own private beach in front of your home but you also have access to a long walking beach. And your beach is bathed by pristine Ocean waters because it is located close to the junction of the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay. And a big plus for parents is that the Bay water off the beach is gentle unlike the rough water of Ocean beaches. Gorgeous! describes the sunsets over the endless water of the Chesapeake Bay available from the home.

HIDEAWAY ON THE BAY is well equipped, furnished and decorated. Built to be very cheery with bright open space and lots of glass as well as multiple entries to several large outside decks. The home also has areas where your group members can find privacy and relax. You can absolutely luxuriate in this home with its sunlit open spaces and views of the water, beautiful hardwood floors, chef’s kitchen, spacious great room, walk-in closets, special lighting, central vac, great heating and cooling system, and gorgeous and large outside decks.

Although the home has not been handicap-fitted, it is accessible to wheel-chair bound persons who can have a bedroom on the main floor and access to the kitchen and dining room/great room. (Wheelchair access requires rental of a small ramp which management will arrange).

HIDEAWAY ON THE BAY can accommodate a small family on the 1st floor and a larger family on the 2nd (main floor) and 3rd floors.

The 1st floor or bottom floor will sleep 2 in a bedroom with a pull-out sofa bed and aTV and it sleep 1 in a folding bed in the adjacent hall. There is a door opening into the garage which is equip with games for children.

The 2nd or main floor has a fully equipped chef’s kitchen connected to an open great room with TV. Both the kitchen and the great room can access a huge deck overlooking the beach and water. On this floor there is a bedroom with two twin beds, a TV and a full bath. And far from the Great Room on the 2nd floor or main floor is another bedroom with a queen bed, TV, a full bath and a door to a deck.

The 3rd floor or top floor has a Master Bedroom with a king bed, TV and a master bath. There is a large sitting area for relaxing, inside or outside on the large deck overlooking the beach and water. And there is a little cove in the 3rd floor with a pull-out sofa bed.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

I wanted to provide you with a few comments on our stay. The place is absolutely beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay. We did have a few issues. When we first arrived, the home was not cleaned. A call to you quickly resolved that issue. The home was cleaned within 2 hours. The remotes for the televisions didn’t work very well. Only the kitchen TV and the TV in the basement worked properly. We could turn on the TVs in the other rooms but the remotes wouldn’t allow us to change the channel. The ceiling in the great room leaked one day when it rained. It leaked in three different areas above the large table in that room. The WiFi was very poor. We couldn’t use our computers or phones consistently. We were unable to use the garages for some reason? The doors wouldn’t open for us. It would have been nice to park our vehicles inside for the week. My black SUV has a lot of sap and pine needles on it from all of the trees near the driveway.

Beautiful home and private beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was beautifully maintained and the private beach was very enjoyable! It was an easy drive to the town of Cape Charles where we enjoyed some shopping, eating, ice cream and some drinks. This was our first time staying on the Chesapeake. We had children ranging in age of 2 to 10 years old. The water was great for all ages of kids and skill levels of swimming. The adults enjoyed floating on rafts and when high tide came in, the kids enjoyed riding the small waves. We were able to catch blue crabs and did some fishing as well. Would definitely recommend this house! We made some memories that will last a lifetime!!

When you arrive at "Hideaway on the Bay," you will find a large notebook entitled WELCOME FUN BOOK, which list a myriad of things to see and do on Virginia’s Scenic Eastern Shore, and you will also find a RESTAURANT BOOK listing the Shore's Restaurants.

In the meantime a good source listing what to see and do as well as scheduled events on the Shore is the website maintained by the Eastern Shore of Virginia Tourism Commission:

"Hideaway on the Bay" is located in the tiny beachfront hamlet of SUGAR HILL, at the southern tip of Virginia's Scenic Eastern Shore close to the confluence of the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay.

Within minutes of this southern location on the Shore, to the south of "Hideaway o the Bay," is the KIPTOPEAKE BEACH STATE PARK, with deep water boat ramps, a fishing and crabbing pier, serious bird watching stations and programs, Children’s programs, hiking trails and beaches. And for Kayakers, over on the Seaside on Virginia’s Inside Passage Waterway (behind the Shore's magnificent Barrier Islands) is the government-maintained WISE POINT BOAT RAMP where you can easily put in your Kayaks or trailerable boat. And don't miss the EASTERN SHORE OF VIRGINIA NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE VISITOR'S CENTER maintained by the US Fish and Wildlife Service to learn about the Shore’s flora and fauna as well as its way of life.

Within 10 to 15 minutes to the north, you can visit the HISTORIC CAPE CHARLES, where you can rent a street-legal golf cart and tour the town’s historic homes, and you can shop in the towns many boutique shops, fish or crab on the town's fun pier, visit the ART’S ENTER shops and see a play or movie, visit CAPE CHARLES MUSEUM AND WELCOME CENTER. Eat at the town's may specialty restaurants, including seafood restaurants on the water. Cape Charles is also known for the many events it hosts. Golfer’s can play the waterfront ARNOLD PALMER and JACK NICKLAUS SIGNATURE GOLF COURSES, recognized as among the top courses in the nation.

If you will go through the WELCOME FUN BOOK at 'HIDEAWAY ON THE BAY," you will find that there are more things to see and do on the Shore, and just off the Shore, than a vacation will allow.

To the north of "HIDEAWAY ON THE BAY,' about an hour away, there are many day-trips available on the Shore, For example, guests can visit NASA’S WALLOPS SPACE VISITORS CENTER and the colorful town of CHINCOTEAGUE and ASSATEAGUE ISLAND NATIONAL SEASHORE PARK (U.S. National Park) with its wild ponies and lots of other wildlife as well as Atlantic Ocean Beaches. Out of ONANCOCK VIRGINIA, guests can take the mail boat to quaint TANGIERS ISLAND and enjoy lunch there.

And off the Shore, to the south of "HIDEAWAY ON THE BAY," across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, there are numerous day trips available. After a 45-minute drive, guests can spend the day in VIRGINIA BEACH, with all its Oceanfront attractions as well as visit the huge VIRGINIA AQUARIUM & MARINE SCIENCE CENTER,, and also visit a new OUTLET MALL,

About 1 1/2 hours away, guests can spend the day at the BUSH GARDERNS THEME PARK or visit Virginia’s Historic Triangle of WILLIAMSBURG-JAMESTOWN-YORKTOWN.

After all this seeing and doing, guest of "HIDEAWAY ON THE BAY" will probably want to relax on the beach deck of their private beach and maybe take a long walk on the walking beach of Kiptopeake Beach or perhaps take a swim in the Chesapeake Bay.
