On Virginia's pristine Eastern Shore and only 17 miles from the Bay Bridge Tunnel, this charming bay front village will exceed all of your vacation expectations. Our sandy beach & swimming are only steps away with unbelievable sunsets! Away-from-it-all, yet not too far off the beaten path.
Area & Property Details: Charming and updated 3 bedroom cottage on the Chesapeake Bay, barely 10 miles from historic Cape Charles and fine dining. Only 17 miles from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, so convenient to Virginia Beach and yet a world away.
Smith Beach is a unique private community with a sandy beach, community dock and boat ramp just steps away. Enjoy swimming, fishing, boating, kayaking, hiking and just plain relaxing.
A pleasant 30 - 40 minute drive north will take you to Onancock with it's art galleries, cultural events and restaurants. A bit further north, find the famous Chincoteague ponies on Chincoteague and Assateague Islands.
Activities & Attractions: Boating of all types abounds. Trailer your own boat/jet ski, or load up your kayaks and they will see a lot of use in Smith Beach.
The community boat ramp (steps from the cottage) is at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and a creek known as "The Gulf". So there is quiet water for novice and/or young kayakers.
The fishing is excellent especially in the spring and fall seasons. Kiptopeke State Park is nearby for hiking, nature walks, bird watching and fishing. Shop and enjoy the casual to elegant dining options in Cape Chalres or Onancock.
Visit Chincoteague Islands famous ponies and go on a nature walk and enjoy Chincoteague's abundance of tourist/souvineer shops and restaurants. As the eastern shore peninsula is only 10 miles wide and between the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay, the area is easily explored by car and scenic water/nature vistas are abundant.
I am from southern Delaware and fell in love with Smith Beach when I discovered it in 2008.

The location of the house is great. The owner was very attentive. The house could do with some upgrades but it was just fine. We had some weather related issues which shortened our trip due to not being able top stay in the house, but overall a good place.

It was chilly in Smith Beach this winter but not nearly as cold as back home in New Hampshire. Hope to come back again next year.

The house was very roomy and comfortable. We enjoyed walking across to the beach access to enjoy the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay! The owners were very friendly and helpful. They responded quickly to any messages we sent. We hope to stay again soon!

It is a very comfortable home and a great place for anyone with small children. The beach is very private and an easy walk from the house. We enjoyed our stay there.

The peach cottage at Smith Beach is great. It's location across the street from a great sandy beach is perfect. The cottage is large and the layout is fairly open, which is great for our large family. There is WIFI and Directtv, so we have access to the rest of the world if we want it, something that wasn't available on the beach not that long ago. The furniture is comfortable and well laid out. It was a great week, we will be back!
