About Cheriton Virginia
Named after Cherrystone Creek, a saltwater inlet from the Chesapeake Bay and home to the famous and tasty Cherrystone clam, Cheriton is a small, colorful hamlet located between the Bay and the sea. Founded in 1884, Cheriton residents enjoy a quiet life anchored by a tiny downtown area with little shops and an art gallery plus nearby banks, medical offices and shopping center. The boat ramps of Oyster and Cape Charles just a few minutes away offer easy access to either the Atlantic or the Chesapeake, especially convenient for those looking for flounder, drum or trout or even an off–shore tuna excursion. And the beaches, Palmer and Nicklaus Signature golf courses, restaurants, shops and library at Cape Charles, less than 10 minutes away, offer so much to do. The well maintained homes of Cheriton range from the modest to the large and historic but all offer their owners a big slice of the Eastern Shore of Virginia’s serene, coastal way of life. And not far from town are a number of small waterfront neighborhoods, both Bayside and Seaside, offering beachfront or boating homes or lots for sale, all centered around our relaxed, water–oriented lifestyles.
