Escape to the beautiful Virginia Eastern Shore and the Chesapeake Bay View Bed & Breakfast. Jamey and Mikey, our Westies are awaiting your arrival.
Our home is one of the three “grand old ladies” that were built across from the beach facing directly west into the sunset. Built in 1927 for a wealthy Cape Charles merchant, we have made extensive renovations to restore its grand character and create one of the most comfortable and relaxing two-room bed & breakfasts on the Virginia eastern shore. Its large rooms, 10 foot ceilings, unique views of the Bay and fabulous sunsets offer our guests an unsurpassed Cape Charles experience on the Chesapeake Bay.
Our gourmet breakfasts are served on the patio in the morning sunshine and just across the road from the most beautiful Bay-front beach on Virginia’s eastern shore.
The Chesapeake Bay View Bed & Breakfast has central air conditioning, Wi-Fi and two very comfortable and relaxing guest rooms with flat screen HD-TV screens with 500 DirecTv channels of enjoyment. Beach chairs and towels are available for enjoying the sun and greatest beach on the Virginia eastern shore.
Cape Charles, the last town on the Delmarva Peninsula, will become your favorite. Located just off Route 13 and less than 10 miles north of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, Cape Charles owes its birth in 1886 to the railroad and the largest harbor on the eastern shore between Norfolk and Maryland. In the mid 1940s as many as 2 million people were passing through town each year by car, rail and ferries. Today its tree lined streets and hundreds of Victorian and Colonial Revival style homes are sought as summer and year-round residences. Cape Charles has one of the best collections of historic buildings of any community on the Eastern Shore, which led to the listing of the Cape Charles National Register Historic District in 1989. More recently, the Bay Creek Club has been developing about 1,750 acres that surround the town and which were annexed in 1992. Today, Cape Charles has two great golf courses, two marinas, opportunities for fishing and sailing, great restaurants, wonderful sandy beaches and sunsets to die for. Most everything is within a short walk, and golf carts are a favorite form of local transportation.
The Chesapeake Bay View has two large comfortable guest rooms on the second floor. We have retained the house’s original hardwood floors and much of its history, while adding modern bathrooms and other amenities to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The rooms have 22 inch flat screen HD/DVD combo TVs with 500 Channel DirecTv, mini-refrigerators with complementary bottled water, hair dryers and fluffy robes.
Beach chairs and towels are available for enjoying the sun and greatest beach on the Virginia eastern shore.
About the Innkeepers
Hank & Sandy recently moved to their home in Cape Charles after having operated two highly successful bed & breakfasts in Maryland over the past eleven years – the Georgian House in Annapolis and the Old Gratitude House in Rock Hall. Sandy is a graduate of the Fashion Design Institute of Technology and was a women’s wear designer and production manager in New York City for 30 years before becoming an innkeeper. She is currently studying for her Masters degree at Atlantic University with a concentration in Art Healing and Hypnotherapy. Sandy also works with rescue kitties. Hank spent more than 25 years in corporate finance in New York City and London before returning to college and earning a Ph.D. in Urban Planning & Public Policy from Rutgers University. He commutes regularly to New Jersey to run two research centers at Rutgers, while also helping Sandy operate their bed & breakfast. Both Hank and Sandy are also very active in the Cape Charles community.
With our Westies, Mikey and Jamey, and Siamese cats Frankie and Jefry, we look forward to making your visit to Cape Charles a memorable reason to return often.
