About Us

Born from the mists of the Chesapeake Bay, the Brigadune Beachside Getaway takes you back in time, to when life was slower and simpler. Come relax with us, unplug and unwind.  Take a leisurely stroll on the nearly deserted beach, only a few minutes walk away.  Watch a breathtaking sunset, over the water.

This beautifully appointed property, overlooking the Bay, is owned and managed by Irene Thomas, a native of Tangier Island, whose roots can be traced back to early island settlers. Renovations began on the property in July of 2018 and continue as this beachside getaway strives to reach its full potential. 


The "Brigadune" name is derived from the word "Brigadoon", which Webster's defines as "a place that is idyllic, unaffected by time, or remote from reality." Brigadune is a nod to the timeless history of our Island, together with the fragile nature of a tiny, tight-knit community at sea level.
