For 15 years, the Onancock Christmas Homes Tour has been a not-to-be-missed event. Truly, this year is no exception. On Saturday, Dec. 12th, from 1 – 5 p.m., six cherished, transformed residences will open their doors to reveal treasures within.
Onancock is listed by Only in VA as one of ten “Most Beautiful, Charming Small Towns in Virginia” and by Washingtonian as one of 27 “Great Small Towns Near Washington, DC”; by Virginia is For Lovers as one of “22 Virginia Small Towns You’re Going to LOVE” in 2014; first of “Top 14 Small Cities In Virginia” by Cities Journal; and as one of “America’s Coolest Small Towns” by CBS News. It has been featured in Chesapeake Bay Magazine more than once. What makes this town so appealing? Its unique situation on Onancock Creek and its three main branches means Onancock is literally enveloped and embraced by the Creek’s waters. Each branch stretches and curves to grace this Eastern Shore bayside town with a bounty of waterfront properties. Three such residences and a fourth that overlooks the Creek are featured on this year’s tour.
