Onancock Virginia-A Corner of Paradise

Charlotte Hotel and Restaurant, Onancock Virginia

Every once in a while a location discovery is made that resonates with you and you just keep going back. In the case of Onancock Virginia the discovery was first made by Captain John Smith in 1608. He called the area now Onancock, “The gem of the Eastern Shore”. But according to photographer and travel writer Mark Edward Alkinson in an article, ‘A Shore Thing’, in the July/August edition of Virginia Living, the area is still relatively unknown by the general travelling public. He also writes that the locals worry a bit that ‘their secret might get out and their paradise be ruined.’

My take on that. Our country has many heavenly locations, we all have our travel bucket lists. Onancock Virginia is one and well worth a visit. The community may well be protective of their paradise but they are also known for being exceedingly hospitable to visitors and newcomers. They are a sharing lot.

Where to stay?  You know I was going there, right? The Charlotte Hotel is a boutique hotel and restaurant  with a distinct style and charm. Located in the heart of Onancock Virginia village. Writer Alkinson says the hotel is “home to one of the best little bars in America, really.” To go along with your adult beverage you will experience glorious food with a distinct taste of Virginia’s eastern shore. Local wines from Church Creek Winery and local waterman and farmers products are featured.

The Charlotte Hotel supports local watermen and farmers.

The Charlotte Hotel has eight guest rooms. The décor is refined with an artistic soul. Innkeepers feature their own created hand crafted furnishings and botanical artwork placed throughout the property. Reviewers comment on the open contemporary feel of the Inn’s rooms. Yet there is an intimacy and coziness, a great combination.

Current owners have built the business over the last eleven years and it is solid. They are now ready to move on.  Interested? To get a real visual idea of this little corner of paradise click here for a nice video. For more detailed information visit our Inns for Sale listing.

You just may want to visit, come back and then decide to stay in paradise. Onancock Virginia style.

The Charlotte Hotel- Boutique Hotel and Restaurant

Are you seeking a unique, one of a kind lodging property? The Charlotte Hotel and Restaurant located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia is a prime example. ‘Charming in Virginia’, this is the way The B&B Team’s has described this truly one of a kind boutique hotel and restaurant lodging property. Eight guest rooms in a beautifully renovated building, a thoroughly modern inn and acclaimed restaurant. Small but mighty!

We believe that today’s traveler often seeks lodging that communicates a unique, compelling and authentic experience. The Charlotte Hotel & Restaurant offers this all inclusive experience plus convenience. Exploring the charming small town of Onancock (pronounced “nan-cock”) is just steps away from the hotel’s entrance. Walk the quaint streets and soak up the local flavors.

When one thinks of the Chesapeake Bay it is often Maryland and Delaware that comes to mind. But tapering off the end of the peninsula is a 70 mile sliver of Virginia.

The area has always been known as a leisure week-end destination. But the inn has excellent upside potential for the mid-week business traveler with NASA’s increased development and reliance upon the installations at Wallups Island less than 30 minutes away. In addition a new hospital is under construction in Onancock, which will be a source of business for years to come.

The area has so much to offer guests who are looking for a “Slow Down Vacation”.

Travelers can go as slow as they want or…explore over a dozen deserted islands and beaches. Go on a Kayak Winery Tour. Explore additional nearby historic waterfront towns like Cape Charles and Wachapreague. Or ‘sail back in time’ to the car-less isle of Tangier. That is a road trip vacation worth the journey. Sign me up!

The Charlotte Hotel’s restaurant is also a large part of the property’s success and profitability. The owners and chef take pride in supporting local watermen, farmers and area businesses. The menu reflects the uniqueness and modern artistic feel of the boutique hotel and restaurant. It completes the package!
