It began before time.
The majestic beauty of the Eastern Shore was shaped by the tides, time and the rhythm of water. This exceptional spot on earth has inspired countless adventurers, settlers, dreamers and visionaries to embrace its magic.
Captain John Smith himself traversed the waters of the Chesapeake, the world’s largest bay, where many say the ‘story of America’ began. In 1614, when an expedition settled Smith’s Island for fishing, the Shore’s wild and rugged landscape was redefined. Its fertile land and bountiful waters provided for Virginia, and soon, a nation.
When the railroad arrived in the late 1800’s, the Eastern Shore prospered like never before. It created our hometown, Cape Charles, with its Post-Victorian architecture and bustling harbor port. But still, the allure of shore reached far beyond progress and productivity. The Eastern Shore’s Hog Island was a favorite retreat of President Grover Cleveland, where he would spend weeks in perfect relaxation.
More than a century later, the founders of Bay Creek would begin creating their own kind of ‘perfection’ here beside the healthful waters of Virginia’s Cape. The Bay Creek story had begun—one of making family memories, discovering adventures and taking time to explore the wonder of the landscape that has inspired generations.
Bay Creek neighborhoods exist in harmony with wetlands, woodlands and the wildlife that makes its home here; distinct coastal architecture joins wide, welcoming streets, fabulous sandy beaches—and a community of friends and family like no other. The magic of life at Bay Creek is, indeed, one for the ages.
Close to everything.
Cape Charles is perched on the southern tip of this iconic peninsula and is squarely in the hearts of those who call Bay Creek home.
