Island Getaway ~~ Kayakers' Dream

Escape to Holly Bluff Island Guest House located on Holly Bluff Island, just a short 15 minute boat ride from the Mainland near Cape Charles, Virginia. 

This island is adjacent to the Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge, as well as, Smith and Mockhorn Islands at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay.

Our Story

The Guest House was originally built as a hunting and fishing camp in the 1930's.  This is the first time in the last 90 years it has been opened to the public. 

Holly Bluff was declared a Wildlife Refuge in 2001 and remains so .  It is a sanctuary for all types of wild animals and birds. It is a resting place for migratory birds, monarch butterflies, and raptors going up and down the East Coast.  It is the home of osprey and eagles, as well as a winter home to seals.  

Holly Bluff Island is within easy reach of Smith and Mockhorn Islands by motor boat, kayak or small sail boat.  Sandy beaches and majestic marshes surround a comfortable haven after a day on the water.  

Spirit of the Island

Here, your mind, body, and soul can't help but relax and become one with nature.  See eagles, kingfishers, song birds, deer, white and gray herons. Witness Spectacular Sunsets and Sunrises.  Be one of the few to stay on the only privately owned Island on the lower end seaside of the Eastern Shore of Virginia. 

Wonderful place for Artists, Families, Kayak groups, Scout groups, fishing, birdwatching, just sit back and watch this wonderful place from the decks on the house or go to beach with a good book.
