Enhanced Clean
This host committed to Airbnb's 5-step enhanced cleaning process.
The cottage is good for couples, solo adventurers, families, and pets! You'll love its character. If you want fancy, this home isn't for you. Homes at this end of Smith Beach have access to a smaller private beach on the Bay that is an easy walk from our cottage. We also has a small beach right out back where you can launch your kayak! You'll see deer and raccoon on the shore, bald eagle's flying overhead, and countless types of other wild birds. This cottage is our family pride and joy.

The space
The cottage has a living room, dining area and kitchen and is a waterfront cottage. It is on a body of water known as The Gulf—The Gulf empties into the Chesapeake Bay. There are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen size bed, and one with a double bed plus an additional twin bed in the same room. There is one full bathroom with shower and a half bath adjoining the master bedroom. There is a futon in the living room. The kitchen is equipped with an electric range, refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher. There is a deck out over the water and a walkway from the back stairs to the waterfront deck. There is central heat and air in all rooms. Access to the beach is down the street and is marked Private Beach. The upstairs rooms have Direct TV (with basic package).

Just a heads up! The only grocery stores that are close to the cottage are Food Lion and Qual Cove Farms (a wonderful little health food store that unfortunately has weird hours). So if you are particular about your food, you should pack ahead!

Some of our favorite places to eat:
DeadRise Pies - Pizzas!
Kelly's Pub - Irish pub with a little bit of everything!
Yuk Yuk & Joes - Serious dive bar! Pizza, wings, burgers, subs.
Machipongo Trading Company - Coffee, smoothies, bagels, breakfast!
Sting Rays - Southern cooking at its best. Their breakfast is great too!
Brown Dog Ice Cream- DELICIOUS ice cream.
El Maguey - Favorite Mexican restaurant. Little bit of a drive but worth it.

Check out Savage Neck Dunes! Savage Neck Dunes Natural Area Preserve is a Natural Area Preserve right on the Chesapeake Bay. Its a super short drive from the cottage and a gorgeous .75-mile walk through the woods to get to the beach. Climb up the dunes and look at the stunning view. Find shells, arrowheads and washed up driftwood. The address of the parking lot is 2101 Savage Neck Rd.

Hello! I am a fashion and lifestyle photographer, avid foodie and lover of nature. When traveling I like to frequent places with a more bohemian vibe. I like to stay in homes, tree houses and cottages with a unique character. I hope to start traveling more soon and can't wait to see all the amazing spots AirBnB will take me!
