Waterfront Living in Onancock Virginia

Onancock Creek

Onancock, Va. is one of the most quiet and ideal places on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.  Set back about 2 miles off of Rt 13 in Accomack County on the Onancock Creek, this small town exudes Americana.  The town Warf has a boat ramp and dock for your short or extended boating stay.  A favorite stoping point for boaters traversing the Chesapeake Bay and heading south to the Intra-coastal waterway in Norfolk.  Market Street is the main drag into town and intersects with North St in the center of town.

Within walking distance of the shops and restaurants is the town docks ….. The Onancock Wharf.  Side streets along the way hold a mixture of  1700 to early 1900’s homes and more modern brick ranch style homes.  Manicured lawns and gardens lend to the late 1800-early 1900 waterman’s ambiance of the town, where everyone knows their neighbors.

On a recent sunny fall day visit … what is striking .. is the calm  stillness and quiet atmosphere  of the town . broken  only by the occasional chatter of seagulls and motor boats on the creek.

If your looking for that “Mayberry RFD” style of living and Coastal Lifestyle …. Onancock has it all.  A great place for a weekend excursions, vacation homes, retirement or year round small town living.
