The Fishing Cottage is in a rural setting that takes full advantage of the Eastern Shore's natural beauty while only minutes from the charming town of Cape Charles with its eclectic shops and restaurants. It is close to beautiful beaches, fishing piers, marinas and boat ramps to launch that boat.
With 6 bedrooms the Fishing Cottage is perfect for larger parties. The firepit, corn hole game, hammock, screened porch, and barbeque grill in the roomy back yard are the perfect place to gather in the evening after a day on the water surrounding the scenic Eastern Shore.
For the fisherman the big yard provides plenty of room to park your boat in a secure location. The house is centrally located minutes from the boat ramps in Cape Charles, Kiptopeke and Oyster. There is a screened porch for morning coffee, satellite TV, fish cleaning station and a barbeque grill to cook that catch of the day.
The Fishing Cottage is located on a local farm with abundant wildlife and acres of corn, potatoes and soybeans. While enjoying sunsets from the screened porch you can watch the deer grazing in the surrounding fields. The farm located on Old Plantation Creek provides access for local watermen to the bounty of the Chesapeake Bay.
The charming Victorian town of Cape Charles is minutes away with its beautiful beaches, lovely old homes and fishing pier. The main street has quaint shops and eclectic dining with outdoor tables to enjoy the harbor view.
Beaches, boat docks, kayaking, birding, wildlife sanctuaries and the unspoiled barrier islands are all nearby.
There is a private airstrip on the farm if you wish to arrive by private plane. Should you wish to bring your own horse there are equestrian stables on the property as well.
Bounded on one side by the Chesapeake Bay and on the other side by the Atlantic Ocean the Eastern Shore of Virginia enjoys unparalleled coastal living beauty. This property takes full advantage of the natural beauty and tranquility of rural living that is the trademark of the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
This vacation rental property is located on our family farm on the Eastern Shore.
Merle has been so helpful the entire time we were planning for our trip. I am saddened due to a hurricane and the relocation of the event we were attending that we are not able to actually follow through with staying at this location after all. But Merle handled even our change of plans and cancellation of our reservation with great courteously and professionalism. Thank you Merle! I hope someday we may get to stay at your property. But I greatly appreciate all you do to make this a great experience for your guests, even before arrival!
fantastic place had a great time plenty a room for everyone conveniently located will definitely be coming back here next year
'The Fishing Cottage' is a simple, yet satisfying, location for a family vacation, joint families' vacation or a just a bunch of friends. Best for a home base from which to travel out for sightseeing, beaches, fishing or boating. We had a crawling 9-month old that loved the living room space to explore during the mornings. The fire pit out back provides a cozy venue for early evening relaxation and the screened in porch was used every morning. There's a large kitchen with amenities to prepare real meals.
We would stay at 'The Fishing Cottage' again.
Suggestions for guests when they arrive - Bring:
- your cooking oils and seasonings
- special baking dishes if beyond a simple cookie sheet
- charcoal and lighter fluid
- fire starter bricks for the fire pit
- yard-type bug spray (e.g. Raid Yard Guard)
Lastly, Merle Starer was very accommodating. (Thank you, Merle.)
The property was absolutely beautiful and had plenty of room for our family.
We enjoyed our stay at the fishing cottage. It is ideal for two families and more. Very clean and quite. Wifi was an extra benifit. Would have given a 5 star rating if tv was a newer flat screen type .
Owners were very nice and polite. We enjoyed meeting them and we will be back again!
thank you Merle and Bob!
My family and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at the fishing cottage! It was perfect for all of us -- 9 people including 1 child. Everyone had plenty of space. We particularly loved all the outdoor space in front and back of the house! Hammock, corn hole, grill, fire pit -- what more could you want?! The beach is a convenient 10 minute drive away. Plenty of extra sheets and pillows if you need them.
We are already looking forward to our next stay here.
