    Description

    Welcome to Smith Island, and the Smith Island B&B, an idyllic place to put all your troubles behind and shed the elbow to elbow stress of city life. This 5 mile by 3 mile island is located in one of the most well hidden enclaves of yesteryear on the Chesapeake. Founded by Capt Smith in the 17th century, seasonal occupation by Native Americans goes back more than 12,000 years. Smith Island is rich in maritime history and is the home to the original Smith Island Cake. It's said even Bluebeard made Smith Island his occasional resting place between his pirating ventures. You'll find very few automobiles here, but a lot of golf carts and bicycles to easily get around. Operated as one of the only Bed and Breakfast accommodations around, this 3 bedroom, 3 bath residence with a bedroom and bath off the main level is a beautiful home and boasts terrific hardwood floors, a large and fully equipped kitchen, large living room, large laundry room with storage, a beautifully landscaped yard, gazebo, and out-building. All appliances convey for added convenience. It is cooled by wall units and heated by baseboard, but with an average temperate high of 80 degrees in the summer months, these are more than sufficient for personal comfort. This B&B is operated in conjunction with 3 other residences in the neighborhood, and all are offered for sale. The taxes are incredibly low, about $440 a year, all trash is incinerated at the community incinerator, there is community water and home waste disposal, so no septic or well to contend with. There is NO HOA fee and NO land lease. Smith Island is a waterman's and crabbing paradise and is only accessible by ferry or private yacht across the Tangier Sound. This gorgeous residence has long been the main house for guests at the Smith Island B&B. Residents of the Island can trace their ancestry back 13 generations to England and Wales, and Smith Island is inhabited by one of the region's oldest English-speaking communities, sometimes inaccurately thought to be described as 'Elizabethan' or 'Shakespearean.' If you're looking for a place to call home, operate your own business, or as a vacation landing place like no other, then chart a course for Smith Island. There are restaurants, gas, (for your boats and few cars on the island,) rental bikes, kayaks, golf carts, and more. There is no police force on the Island but it won't take long to discover the friendliness of the islanders makes it unnecessary. There is a volunteer fire department and grade school for the tykes as well as a community center. Come, see what the Chesapeake has to offer you.
