The 585-acre Russell Island in Accomack County is located north of Onancock. Approximately a 10-minute boat ride from either Deep Creek or Schooner Bay Boat Ramps, it is easily accessible regardless of wind and tide. The one-story cabin has 11 rooms and is sold fully furnished. The cabin has a propane refrigerator, commercial range, lighting and 2 generators. The property is made up of 3-4 acres of upland with the remaining acreage being primarily marshland with low lying sandy areas. Russell Island has an abundance of wildlife including ducks, sea birds, crabs, fish and oysters with recreational opportunities for waterfowl hunting, fishing, kayaking, bird watching, exploring, swimming and crabbing. The island has a long history of waterfowl hunting, fishing and socializing. This is an extremely rare opportunity to own an island in the Chesapeake Bay and enjoy a world class wilderness experience with waterfowl hunting, fishing for red drum, speckled trout and rock fish, hiking, oysters, crabbing and bird watching.
The island was named by Captain John Smith in the early 1600s in honor of Smith’s ship doctor, Walter Russell. Following being seriously wounded by a stingray, Smith credited Russell with saving his life.
President John F. Kennedy visited for duck hunting on several occasions.
