This is the world's most adorable & tiny beach cottage. Ideal for the solo traveler or romantic couple seeking down time away from the madding crowd & looking to relax on a quiet beach or go sight-seeing.

The kitchen has sink, micro, mini-fridge, NO stove. Cooking is outside on the gas grill with side burner. There is air conditioning + ceiling fans. The sandy beach is only a few steps distant on the Chesapeake Bay & an outside shower aside the pink cottage will refresh you after your beach time. Incredible sunsets over the Chesapeake Bay!
Pink Cottage Amenities: The Pink Cottage (efficiency) has air conditioning + ceiling fans in addition to the usual Chesapeake Bay breezes.

Activities and Attractions: Boating of all types abounds. Trailer your own boat or jet-ski, wave runner, or load your kayaks on top of your car, and they will see a lot of use at Smith Beach. The community boat ramp (steps from the cottage) is at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and a creek area know as 'The Gulf.' So there is quiet water for novice and/or young kayakers/canoers. The fishing is unsurpassed!! Kiptopeke State Park is nearby for hiking, nature walks, birdwatching, etc. Shop and enjoy the casual to elegant dining options in nearby Cape Charles (10 miles south) or Onancock (30 miles north).
