4/5 Good

Solitude with friendly neighbors!
Peaceful! And also friendly! Some neighbors became friends. Peace without TV and very spotty WIFi and cell phone reception. Smith Road is two or three miles long and dead end. No traffic, beautiful sunsets and access to a splendid restaurant & good shops in Cape Charles. Would go back if & when possible.

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful Paradise
My husband and I absolutely LOVE staying at Bonnie and Rick's cottage in Cape Charles. We just completed our 2nd stay. It's a rare find! Right on the water - you can have your morning coffee in your pjs while down at the water's edge. The cottage is right there at the shore, so there is no need to pack things up for a day at the beach. Privacy fence on the beach that extends into the water makes it easy to bring your doggos with you, without having to keep them on a leash. Cottage itself is quaint and comfortable - feels like home! The location and the cottage itself make for a very relaxing, easy vacation right on the beach and on the water. Private and peaceful! Oh and the sunsets! The cottage faces west, over the bay - so you get glorious sunsets each day! Bonnie is fantastic to work with as well - available and easy to communicate with. Never had any issues!

5/5 Excellent

Our second stay here
Location location location! This house is in a perfect spot on a quiet secluded street with a waterfront view and no light or sound pollution. Sunsets are amazing. Water access to the bay with a backyard too. Would be perfect for kayaking. Perfect spot to stay home and grill. A/C runs well and wifi is pretty strong which is great because we had almost no service in the area without the wifi. This time around we had our new 3 month old son with us and the house was perfect for us to bring him out into the bay in short intervals and also for me and my fiance to be able to easily take turns going out to enjoy the water without the baby. Our dog loves running out into the bay as well! We brought a ground stake and tie out for him so he could hang with us in the back yard. One thing I'd say to be aware of is the shower stall is pretty small. My fiance is 6'5 and showering in there was a challenge but not impossible. The adorable beach town of Cape Charles is just minutes away. Busch Gardens is about an hour and a half away(we went there one day during our first stay here). We will be back again for as long as this rental is available!

Another Perfect GetAway
This was our 4th stay at Bay Dreamin'; it never fails to charm. We feel so at home in this darling little cottage! Even our dogs get excited when we pull up to the yard. We had some lovely days on the edge of the bay, just relaxing in the sand. Found time for day trips to nearby Cape Chares,Savage Neck Preserve, and our favorite, Kiptopeake State Park.The best time of day is sunset on the water; sitting on the sweet little dock in the backyard and watching the colors of the sky change is breath taking. .See you next time!

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
My husband and I were able to get out of town with the dogs and stay in this cottage. We loved it. Words cannot describe the view of the Bay, and Bonnie is not kidding when she says that each sunset is truly different. We made a point to get home in time to watch the sunset each night because the view was that great. Bonnie was so helpful and she immediately responded to any messages that we sent her. We would definitely come back.
