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.

Spectacular yet homey!
We stayed at Eagle's View for Columbus Day weekend. The house itself was so incredibly comfortable, and the deck with access to the marsh and the channel was a hit for my whole family. We rented kayaks and paddle boards, and we went crabbing right on the dock. The view of the lighthouse is tremendous. And we actually did see 2 gorgeous eagles from the kayaks!
The week we spend at Eagles View is the BEST week of the year
This is a little piece of heaven. The location could not be better offering total convenience to everything on the island, yet tucked away in a very quiet spot
The view of the lighthouse and the canals is so gorgeous and peaceful
We love the ability to paddle board, canoe and kyak right from the dock
as well as crab for those that are brave enough to handle them
The house is very warm and welcoming and very well equipped & maintained
We have been returning for many years and literally have watched our grandchildren grow up there. They count the days until they return
A great choice for a fabulous family vacation
And we love welcoming you back each year!! Returning guests are every vacation home owner's dream, not only because you are a "known commodity" but because it means you love our home almost as much as we do! I enjoy reading the comments in our guest book from you and your grandchildren each year. We are so thrilled that Eagle's View entices four different families back every summer. It's so heartwarming and rewarding to know that our guests have memorable experiences in our home!
a great place to be
Our family decided on very last minute, we want to be out together for Christmas. Karen responded my rental request quickly and got everything set up for us in a very short time.
The house is very clean and comfortable, very nice deco, the view is absolutely wonderful, all 6 of us loved our stay and we had a great time! I really enjoyed the sunrise and sunset views. we definitely go back again.
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!

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

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

Wonderful house, beautiful location. All you could want!
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!
