About Us

Over 45 Years
of Family Fun

The Cutty Sark is located across the street from the ocean in the exclusive, quiet North End of the Virginia Beach Boardwalk. Shopping and fine dining are but a short stroll away.

When the late Cdr. Koch retired after serving in the US Navy, he and Mrs. Koch had the opportunity to travel the world. They stayed in Grand Hotels, and some not so Grand. What they loved best were small family operated vacation properties. For Over 45 years the Koch family have welcomed guest to the Cutty Sark Efficiencies and Historic Cottages. More than a century of Historic Coastal Cottage Architecture on one corner of beautiful Virginia Beach, home to one of the world’s largest resort cities. The Cutty Sark revels in its vintage history and hopefully will ever remain so.

Cdr. and Mrs. Koch have been the proud owners of the Cutty Sark for over 45 years, and it has been their living and their life.

Having seen many families grow up summer after summer at the Cutty Sark, the Kochs feel a very close friendship with their guests.

Since 1976, Cdr. And Mrs. Koch have welcomed Virginia Beach guests to the Cutty Sark Motel, many of whom have returned year after year to become considered an extended part of the Koch family. Unmatched hospitality and personal attention to your satisfaction ensures your family’s oceanfront holiday will be wonderfully unforgettable. Because of this sterling reputation, Cutty Sark Motel & Historic Cottages is not only a member of the Small Elegant Hotels of the World, but has also been praised in the pages of Virginia Living and Southern Living magazines.
