Things To Do

Since each season on the Eastern Shore has its unique natural splendor, Cape Charles House is open year 'round for your enjoyment. Umbrellas and sand chairs are available for a day at the beach or take a stroll through town to the galleries, antique and gift shops. You can even rent a golf cart in our golf cart friendly town to explore the Municpal Harbor, downtown shops and Bay Creek Resort. 

Fishing, clamming and crabbing are other activities to be enjoyed out of doors; hardier souls may desire advance reservations for guided fishing, hunting or shooting expeditions. Boating excursions on the bay, around the barrier islands, or to Tangier Island are available. Chincoteague and Asateague Islands are only a short drive away.

Other outdoor pursuits include golf at one of Bay Creek Resorts two award winning PGA Signature Golf Courses, one designed by Jack Nickalus and one by Arnold Palmer. Visits to the Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge or The Nature Conservancy. Nearby Kiptopeke State Park, located at the tip of the Eastern Shore, is one of the state's newer parks. The Eastern Shore is well known for bird-watching and naturalists as a migratory path for birds and butterflies in the spring and fall.

History permeates the villages and towns. Nearby Eastville has the oldest continuous court records in America, dating to 1632.

A self-guided historic walking tour of Cape Charles, as well as antique shopping and weekend country auction sales, make pleasant diversions. The Turner Bronze Foundry and Gallery and the NASA Wallops Island Visitors Center are also of interest.

We welcome boating guests from the Chesapeake Bay. Public and private moorings are available at Cape Charles Harbor and Bay Creek Marina; both are just minutes from Cape Charles House, with pickup service available.
