About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 1-11)

Eagle's View, our 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath waterfront house faces the Assateague Channel with a stunning view of Assateague Island, the gorgeous Assateague Lighthouse and wildlife refuge. There are three levels of waterfront outdoor living with our private lighted dock, screened porch, open-air deck and third floor intimate balcony. Adirondack chairs and dining table sets provide plenty of seating for your delicious fresh seafood feasts; a glider on the dock for relaxing and dreaming; a steel-framed hammock on the screened porch is ideal for reading and snoozing! The bright and spacious great room with soaring ceiling overlooks the water and marshes, with the refuge and lighthouse as a backdrop. Two queen master bedroom suites make the home perfect for multi-generational guests. The third floor loft (with water view) is a wonderful respite for kids with their own TV, VCR and DVD library plus board games and puzzles. From the loft a hallway leads to two more bedrooms (two twins in each) and a large shared bath. The nautically-themed bedroom has terrific water views down the Channel to the Ocean Inlet. A dramatic catwalk from the loft leads you to a waterfront balcony where you will enjoy the spectacular view.

The kitchen is fully equipped to provide for all cooking needs with everything from coffee bean grinder, ice cream maker, Kitchenaid mixer to stainless steel crab steamer. We also provide crabbing equipment. The laundry with front-loading washer and dryer is conveniently located near the master bedrooms. There is a powder room off the great room. Master bedrooms have TVs; 2 flat screen TVs are also in the sitting rooms. WIFI throughout. We enjoy watching the wild ponies grazing below the lighthouse, as well as star-gazing and bird-watching, so we provide our guests with the use of our scope.

Relax on the glider on our dock and gaze at the lighthouse, or lose yourself in a good book! Our deck seats 10 to 12 for great seafood dinners off the gas grill, out of the crab steamer or carried out from the many great seafood eateries. Our plentiful video/DVD library provides hours of movie viewing while snuggled up with loved ones on the two couches in the great room. Greet the mornings while watching the sunrise over Assateague Island; you will see and hear the marshes come alive with marsh birds, herons, egrets, turtles, etc. Glimpse the occasional bald eagle soaring overhead, on the way to his/her nest on Assateague. Photograph wading birds and water fowl right from our deck. Vacations at Eagle's View in spring and fall provide the opportunity to view many more species of birds as they travel on the Atlantic Migratory Flyway over Assateague and Chincoteague. When the snow geese fly overhead in late fall, it will take your breath away! End your day with a late evening glass of wine on the deck or balcony and listen for the occasional owl hooting, whippoorwill call or pony whinnying across the Channel. Be mesmerized by the sound of the crashing surf on the Atlantic beachfront!

We have decorated Eagle's View with art from local artists, our photographs, decoys, nautical maps and real antique anchors, to add to the seaside feeling. Our collection of antiques includes oyster plates, faux scrimshaw, shells, decoys and nautical memorabilia. The furnishings are high-quality but comfortable and inviting, making our guests feel welcomed and relaxed in a bright and airy setting.

The quiet location on Little Piney Island, on the Eastside of Chincoteague Island is private yet not remote. We are close to everything! Bike to Main Street or Maddox Blvd. for shops, restaurants, the Island Creamery, the Sea Star Cafe for great sandwiches, carry-out food shops, miniature golf, bumper boats, etc., or to visit the two museums on the way to Assateague. There are no through streets and no commerce on our little island-neighborhood, so there is safe biking for little ones and walking for all. The almost constant ocean breeze is a refreshing delight which really deters the mosquitos. This Eastside location is ideal to access:

~ the bridge to Assateague

~the Wildlife Refuge

~the Visitor Centers

~the Atlantic Ocean beachfront

~restaurants and shops


~fishing, tennis and the playground at Memorial Park

~public boat ramps

~bike, scooter and kayak rentals

~kayaking down the Channel to Etta's Restaurant for dinner

~great photo opportunities of the Lighthouse and water birds


Keywords: Waterfront home with fantastic views of the Assateague Channel, Lighthouse and Wildlife Refuge. Enjoy the waterfront from our private, lighted dock~~~catch crabs for your dinner, read a book on the glider, kayak over to Assateague for close-up viewing of the wild ponies. Relax, refresh, recharge!

About Karen Lowe

We live in the heart of Hunt Country in Middleburg, Virginia, on our small farm where we raise Christmas trees, herbs, horses and cows. We love these Blue Ridge Mountains but we also love the ocean and this unique island. Rick is a Realtor, with a Middleburg brokerage specializing in rural properties here in Loudoun County. Karen runs her small gourmet food company from the farm. Together we raise Christmas trees and open our farm to customers who come back year after year for hayrides, hiking on the farm and cutting down their Christmas trees. We also run a vacation guest cottage on our farm called The Hunt Box which is filled with antiques. We've always had horses for our children who showed in the Hunter/Jumper circuit; now our grandchildren are learning to ride as well. We love to relax and read, besides kayaking, antiquing, photography, travel, birdwatching and gardening. We are active in local environmental groups.

Karen Lowe purchased this house in 2001

Why Karen Lowe chose Chincoteague Island

We vacationed here with our children for years and fell in love with the island! It is quiet, natural and family oriented, unlike many other beach resort areas. We love the educational opportunities and programs that are provided on Assateague, as well as the natural beachfront, wildlife refuge and all the hiking and biking trails. We love to kayak in such a natural setting. We have enjoyed meeting many talented artists and photographers on the island, as well as interesting shop owners. We find it a great source for the enjoyment of fresh seafood. Our children grew up reading 'Misty of Chincoteague' so we enjoy coming down to watch the Saltwater Cowboys in the Spring and Fall Pony Roundups as well as the Annual Pony Roundup, Pony Swim and Auction. The Volunteer Fire Department puts on a great carnival every July, which is great fun!

What makes this house unique

Incredible 180 degree waterview! The private dock, deck, screened porch and third floor balcony provide hours of relaxation and wildlife viewing. Crabbing from our dock provides a great dinner. We appreciate that Little Piney Island has no commerce and no through traffic, so it remains quiet, yet is convenient to everything. We love to kayak through the marshes and over to Assateague Island, and our dock is perfect for it. Star-gazing from the deck in this area with so little light pollution is excellent. Relaxing on the deck or balcony in the evening and hearing the Atlantic Ocean waves crashing on the beach on Assateague is so peaceful and rejuvenating.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time. Very nice movie collection!

House has a beautiful view and made us feel right at home. The addition of crab pots for guests would be great for the future.

[We took their suggestion and now provide 2 crab pots, which are the traps for catching crabs, for our guests to use.]

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review! It truly makes us happy to share our special place, Eagle's View, with other families. Our view of the lighthouse and wildlife refuge mesmerizes us, and always brings me peace. I do hope your grandchildren got to see the wild ponies on Assateague with the use of the scope and tripod we provide to our guests, and I hope that YOU got to relax on that new bench down on the dock right at the water's edge. The crab traps on the screened porch are one of the favorite amenities we provide our guests and it saves guests from having to buy them just to use for a week or a weekend. Glad your family got to catch some of the early season crabs! You are always welcome back at Eagle's View. Karen and Rick Lowe, Owners

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jane, for the nice review. We were so glad that we could arrange this last minute Christmas holiday stay for your family, and a great deal of that success was due to our wonderful Property Manager on the island, Stephanie Taylor who owns Eastern Shore Retreats. We enjoy sharing our little slice of paradise with others, and I'm glad you soaked up some sunrise/sunset views from our home. Everyone gets mesmerized by that spectacular view! You all are welcome back anytime! Karen and Rick Lowe

Wonderful home, clean, well-organized, everything as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

A perfect home for our get-away to Chincoteague. Plenty of room for 4 adult couples; kitchen was well stocked and clean. We would love to come back again - the owner was accessible and replied to all of our questions promptly. No complaints! Thank you for having us.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the great review, Elinor! All of our past guests agree with your assessment! :) I'm sure you and your family were mesmerized by our fantastic view; it's so calming and peaceful, and this year the unusually warm Autumn must have allowed for lots of deck-sitting and catching crabs off of our private dock. We hope you got to see quite a variety of birds, because we are right on the Atlantic Flyway for migratory songbirds and waterfowl. It's quite spectacular in Spring and Autumn. We were delighted to host you and your friends! You are welcome back anytime. Best regards, Karen and Rick Lowe, Owners

Fantastic location, wonderful owners, clean property...great place to stay. The marsh, birds, lighthouse, and dock...fantastic!

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear you loved your stay at Eagle's View!! You share the same assessment as all of our previous guests. :) That view simply calms me when I sit on our deck and just gaze at the lighthouse and the water, and watch the shore birds cavorting around. I hope you caught some crabs from our private dock, because this fall weather has been unusually warm. And thank you, Kelly, for the compliment! We feel blessed to own Eagle's View and we are thrilled when our guests have a memorable experience in our home! You are welcome back anytime! Karen and Rick Lowe, Owners

Very well appointed house that is organized, spacious, airy, and relaxed. There is space for everyone and things to do for everyone in the family. We all had a fabulous time staying at this house and of course a deliriously wonderful time on Chincoteague and Assateague. The perfect beach, bike, kayak, fishing, crabbing, bird watching vacation for the whole family.

Frequent sightings of wild ponies & otters & water turtles right from our deck, great birdwatching in the marshes and water fronting our house at low tide when the wading birds all arrive (herons, egrets, etc.), fantastic star-gazing with our scope in the dark night sky, Assateague Island provides miles of hiking and biking trails, bike to restaurants and shops from our house, bikes and boats are available for rental locally, an easy kayak paddle across the Channel brings you to the edge of Assateague and frequent close-up encounters with ponies grazing in the marshes, kayak or canoe to Etta's Channelside Restaurant dock just 8 minutes down the coast from our house!
