Welcome to the Seven Mile House Up!! This open and airy house sits high on 14 foot pilings and has a massive 62 foot long deck overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. It will be sure to sooth all your worries away the minute you walk through the door! Please check out Cozy Cottage on the Chesapeake Bay for additional guests! In addition to a large deck overlooking the Bay, you will have access to a large yard with a fire pit, as well as the natural windswept beach located just steps off the yard. The cottage has access to this area as well. If we happen to be in the cottage during your stay, we go out of our way to make sure that you are happy and that you have everything that you need and then we leave you alone unless you want us or need us. The yard and the private beach are shared with the cottage. Imagine driving down a long dead end road and discovering a small colony of just 8 cottages nestled along the Chesapeake Bay. Welcome to THE SEVEN MILE HOUSE in Crystal Beach Colony where daily life is calm, peaceful and untroubled. For the sportsman, our house is situated on the Chesapeake Bay with excellent fishing directly accessible from the bank or nearby boat launch. Waterfowl hunting in the highly productive Barrier Island Chain is only a few miles away or you can hunt directly offshore here on Bayside! After sundown from the back deck, you can see the twinkling lights of historic Tangier Island. By day when the sky is clear, a distant image of the little island town is also visible. Tangier was a strategic British base of operations during the war of 1812, and it is approximately 13 miles distant in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. Boat tours are available for visiting the wonderful and unique island. This makes for a great day of sightseeing, shopping and dining on local cuisine, along with a fantastic boat ride to and from the destination. Wallops Island is a well known NASA location for rocket launches into outer space. It has become a significant facility which deploys many rockets throughout a typical year, including the launch to supply the International Space Station. From the back porch of 'Seven Mile House', these spectacular events are visible in the night sky. On a clear evening, one can actually see the rocket profile and separation of the various rocket stages during early, rapid acceleration. The light show from the blast and burning fuel is spectacular! Plan your vacation when a launch is scheduled from Wallops Island for an unforgettable event in your Chesapeake vacation! Information regarding upcoming rocket launch dates is available from the NASA

Beautiful apartment with amazing views of the Chesapeake. We enjoyed the sunset, and had fun watching all of the crabs. The furnishings in the apartment are gorgeous. We had everything we needed!!

This is an Airbnb gem! Lived Patty's place. It's a rare find on the Eastern Shore. Not many places with a private beach, especially as gorgeous as Crystal Beach. The house was great as well with cool furniture and quite a deck with sunset views. Thank you, Patty, for providing a great spot to vacation.

Patty's place offers a peaceful and secluded get-away. This sweet private nook took a little getting used to (actually not long at all!) for me and my fiancé as we live in a more populated and urban setting and community. Patty's home is clean, spacious, and bright, offering wonderful views of the sky and bay. We spent lots of time on the back deck overlooking the water, taking in spectacular sunsets, bright night time stars, and an amazing lightshow during an evening storm. In addition to stand up paddling and kayaking in our own private bay, we took a fun kayak/wine-tasting trip to a local vineyard (Chatham) with Will from Southeast Expeditions , a beach day to Chincoteague and Assateague, and a fun boat trip and visit to the tiny fishing village at Tangiers Island (rent a golf cart and head to the pristine beach!) We greatly enjoyed our time here and hope to return again!

What an incredible place! If you are looking for a quiet beach vacation, this is the perfect house to rent. Between the quiet, private beach, and the beautiful house that has everything you need, you really can't ask for much more. The location, which is a short drive from Onancock or Onley, is convenient and close, but still feels so secluded. Thanks, Patty!

This spot is just wonderful, and Patty is a fabulous host. The views from the deck, the cozy fire pit, the private beach front, and all the amenities you need are right at your fingertips- plus Patty's helpful suggestions on kayaking, restaurants, wineries and such nearby helped us round out a relaxing, delightful weekend. We switched to this property at the last minute from the downstairs "Cozy Cottage" and Patty could not have been more accommodating and communicative- she made everything easy and was friendly and flexible. I hope to be back soon!
