The Chesapeake Cottage
Quintessential Crystal Beach Style!
A great home for 2-3 families with children or up to 10 adults max!
Or if you have a larger group, we have 3 houses, all right next door to each other!
Enjoy a memorable beach vacation in this recently remodeled cottage-style home very close to the beach. The home is like new – with interior updates and modern conveniences – and it still has that special charm and comfort you expect from a classic beach home. With an emphasis on quality and comfort, this home accommodates 6 adults and up to 8 children, offering you beautiful spaces to relax and enjoy every minute of your vacation. This lovely home features 4 bedrooms, including 3 King Masters and a Bunk Room with 2 sets of custom built-in full-over-full beds (yes, that’s 4 full-size beds). It also has 3 full bathrooms.
There is plenty of room for everyone to gather in the spacious living area and the incredible custom kitchen is open to the action as well. The private pool is surrounded by brand new decking and beautiful landscaping. And when you’re ready for the beach – it’s a very short walk – you’re just one house away from the beach road, Scenic 98.
The expansive front porch welcomes you into this exceptional home. Inside, you’ll find a bright and beautiful living area with gleaming hardwood floors, custom wainscoting and plenty of seating for your entire group. The wide open spaces continue in the brand new kitchen, where a huge center island is a centerpiece for casual dining with 10 bar stools. The kitchen is a chef’s dream, with all new cabinets, stainless steel appliances including a gas range, massive granite countertops and plenty of space to spread out. You’ll find all the dishes, pans and utensils you may need, a Keurig D-Cup coffee maker, and even a few spices, to get you started. We want you to feel at home, and the large, open layout is a perfect gathering spot for your family or friends.
For the convenience of our guests, we have also included a high capacity Samsung HE washer and dryer in the large laundry room. You’ll also find an iron, ironing board, broom, and a few cleaning supplies. We keep our home clean and well updated and pay attention to amenities you expect, such as high-speed internet (free wifi), nice flat-screen TVs, high-definition cable, hair dryers in each bathroom, and more. We also provide items our smaller guests may need like a high chair and pack-n-play.
