About Mark L. Usry
Texan by birth I grew up in Oklahoma and first became part of the Cape Charles community in 1995. I enjoy the opportunities that are part of spending the last 30 years in higher education classrooms at James Madison University in Virginia for 20 years and currently at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania.

Why Mark L. Usry chose Cape Charles
This is my home upon retirement. This community is a combination of those who have been here for years and those that have relocated here more recently. It is a chosen community of many artisans, educators, professionals, workmen and entrepreneurs. This is a community that welcomes diversity - racial, faith traditions, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression - of all kinds, you will love it here if you are accepting of that diversity and ..... love amazing sunsets at the beach.
What makes this Cottage unique
A cozy home with a wide front porch and small back porch with a beautiful garden and amazing neighbors.

Love, Love, Love
We had the BEST time! This home is lovely and the gardens are gorgeous! Close to the beach and shops. Best family vacation ever!!
So glad you all enjoyed your stay! I love CC and am happy when others do as well!
Would definitely rent this place again
We've come to Cape Charles for a number of years, and have stayed in different places each year. This was our favorite place, yet. It was comfortable, well-appointed, clean, and SO close to the shops and the beach. Sure, everything in Cape Charles historic district is close to the shops and the beach, but when you are walking around with a few toddlers in the blazing heat every block counts.
The gardens are beautiful and peaceful. This is a well cared-for property and we felt truly relaxed here .
I am sure he had this in his materials, but in case you (like I) don't pay attention to the details, make sure you bring your own beach stuff like umbrellas, chairs, and toys. There is no outdoor shower, but we fared OK with the garden hose. There is only one shower inside the house, which worked OK for us because it was just our family, but if you were traveling with multiple couples it might be an issue. The room with the bunk beds (where we intended to keep our kids) has access to an open (and steep) staircase. We managed to block this off with a chair, but for very small children it might not be a good place.
All in all we loved it and hope to return!
Wonderful vacation in a beautiful home.
We loved our stay at the Kenner Cottage, the house is wonderful, well stocked with everything you need for a week at the beach. The yard is beautiful, very well kept. Cape Charles is a wonderful town, we have been coming for vacations for quite a few years now.
So happy to hear that you enjoyed my home and our community!
Thank you for the compliments.
We loved everything about the Kenmar Cottage! The location was very convenient to the beach, town, and the park. The house was well stocked with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We especially loved evenings on the porch!
The best place in Cape Charles!
My husband, three kids, and I just came back from a week at Kenmar Cottage and I have to say the pictures do not do the house and location justice. It is amazing. Location is perfect- close to the shops and the bay and perfect for
Walking and biking (my daughter and I biked everywhere!) the house is incredible and perfect for a family. The gardens, the way it is decorated- it’s just perfect. We look forward to returning next year!
Lovely week at Kenmar Cottage by the Bay
We enjoyed staying at Kenmar Cottage and would definitely stay there again. The location was great; it is close to the shops and restaurants on Mason Street and an easy walk to the Bay. The pictures on line do not do the house justice. The gardens in the back yard and the outdoor seating gave us ample opportunity to enjoy quiet visits with family and friends. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you might need. We appreciated the outdoor gas grill and cooked out several nights (the grill is getting a little tired and may need to b replaced soon). We thank our host for making his lovely home available.
So happy that you enjoyed my home. Hope to host you on a return visit. I will look into replacing that grill.
