Bill and Suzie Kropfeld are the owners of a cozy, clean, safe and comfortable motel located on Route 13 South, nestled on the historic Virginia Eastern Shore at Cape Charles. Conveniently located on the southernmost tip of the Delmarva Peninsula, it is just minutes away from the Chesapeake Bay and/or the Atlantic Ocean. The Cape Motel caters to travelers and their families, fishermen with boats, and even the (mobile) camper can overnight here, with plenty of space for parking trailers of every size. The Kropfelds provide their guests the opportunity to relax from their travels at a slower pace and has reasonable rates, HBO/TV, AC, a pool, as well as a picnic area, with vending and laundry facilities also on the premises. Efficiencies are also available here. There are also facilities for the fisherman, complete with an area to clean and prepare their “catch of the day.” Cape Charles is world famous for their Drum fishing season (the record is 116 lbs.); and for its crabs, oysters and clams. Directly across from their establishment, you may dine at The Cape Center, where you may purchase gas, and/or browse their gift shop, before resuming your trip to points north beyond the Delmarva Peninsula; or to points south, across the newly expanded (to twin spans) 17-mile, Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel (just six minutes away/6 miles south) towards Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Hampton Roads and the southern Atlantic states.
