Your Private Retreat …..
Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, family vacation, girls weekend, or just a quiet spot to enjoy the serenity of the Chesapeake Bay----
This is the beach house for you
With an open floor plan this a perfect spot to vacation with family or friends. The warm, lived-in feeling this house provides comes from years of our family truly loving this magical place we call “the shore house”.
Our family has been making memories here for 35 years. We have opened our home to you to share the tranquility of Crystal Beach. Situated at the end of a quiet dead end road, this bay front cottage awaits you. Come escape the crowds and enjoy the private beach right out your front door. Calm shallow waters of the bay make it perfect for launching a kayak or paddle board and for young children to play. Bring your boat or rent one in town. There is a public launch available blocks of the house.
We love the remote feeling this cottage has though it is just a few miles from the charming historic town of Onancock. With its artisans feel, Onancock offers restaurants, galleries, antique shops, bakery, movie theater, boutiques, and quiet streets to stroll.
We invite you to come experience the magic of the shore.

Build in 1911 and moved from Accomack to Crystal Beach in 1946, Mary and Moe Moran bought this little cottage in 1979. Then it was a 1 room cottage with a small attic and wrap around porches. Located just an hour and a half away from their Virginia Beach home, it was the perfect getaway for them and their three children. After being damaged during hurricane Floyd in 1999, the cottage was raised onto pilings and remodeled. Though most of the original structure is still used. Over the years, the three Moran children have each had children of their own. These three generations have gathered each summer for 'Moran's Cousins Camp'. We come from Virginia Beach, Richmond and Ohio to fish, crab, kayak, swim, and reconnect as a family. Many happy memories have been made here.
Leslie Baltimore purchased this cottage in 1979
The Eastern Shore is still an unrealized jewel for the masses. A few of us have figured out that it is a paradise without the crowds--a peaceful getaway.
The views from every window in the house tell the story of why we love Crystal Beach. It is so peaceful and beautiful.
We stayed here in June 2016 and enjoyed a fabulous vacation! The views are spectacular and we loved spending our days on the water. The house was lovely and comfortable. Leslie was so helpful and gave us some great tips for day trips and awesome donuts. We had a great time!
Our visit this week was beyond our expectations. The home was very comfortable and the location was perfect! The kitchen was very well equipped and as a cook I totally enjoyed preparing food there for our crew! The layout of the house and the furnishings are very well done and it felt like home from the minute we got there. The owner Leslie was helpful from the start and even allowed us to get in a few hours early since it was ready. We will totally be coming back here to enjoy more time relaxing and kayaking from the beach right off the deck. Thank you for allowing us and others to experience the vacation home you and your family have graciously open for others to enjoy!
This home was a beautiful gem tucked away on the Eastern Shore of Virginia! Beautiful views and a relaxing time, a place where you are able to forget about things for as long as you would like! Great food, nice folks and just a wonderful place to spend some time away from the hectic world we see everyday; thanks for the great memories and hope to see you again!!
Nicely situated cottage on the bay. A bit out of the way but worth the sunsets! Has a great gathering space with large, well appointed kitchen, big dining table and seating area in one big room. The bedroom situation is a bit awkward as you have funnel through one bedroom to get to the bathroom, but this will not be a problem if you are family or in our case VERY good friends.
Enjoyed our stay. Beautiful sunsets and very comfortable home.
Wow! This house was just what we were looking for in a vacation house. It was right on the beach, it was a quiet location, the sunsets were gorgeous, and the house was very cozy fitting all of our needs. The owners of this house have made sure that they thought of everything that might be needed......they even had games and puzzles for the kids to play with. The only thing they did not have available to use was a washing machine but we made due without one. One of our favorite things to do when not swimming was to sit under the house in the sand and shade and watch the water. No umbrellas or tents needed! Also, the outdoor shower was a hit for our family! Thank you for allowing us to use your house for a wonderful vacation that we will not forget!! I'm sure we will be back soon!
Hang Glide Virginia is located in Onancock. Antiquing, art galleries, boutiques, and restaurants are plentiful. Corner Bakery is a must for the doughnut lovers.
