2 bdrm cottage, queen and double on 28 private acres on the York River in Gloucester, Virginia. Nearby inlets for kayak exploration. River is lightly traveled. Easy access to Yorktown, Newport News, Williamsburg, Jamestown, Richmond, Norfolk, Urbanna. This is a quiet getaway, not a place for 'fraternity or sorority' or group type partying.
We are currently having some maintenance problems with the pool and are looking for a contractor to refurbish it, we do not know when the construction will start. It is usable, the sides are a bit bubbly after a rain. All other amenities are in working order at this moment. Please note that this is a rustic residence/cottage NOT A HOTEL, not a gormet kitchen. NO PETS! The cottage is very private, but the Hot tub, pool, and sauna are on the owners side and available for your use. We have 2 ocean type kayaks and a canoe. Very very Light boats can be launched with 4wd. One bedroom is queen, the other is a double. Fantastic view of the river. Crab pots are available, but bring your own bait, best crabbing is late August/September. This is a RUSTIC COUNTRY COTTAGE. It's equipped BUT NOT FANCY. We have updated the electrical sockets to make them child proof. There is a large screen tv with basic cable if there is an event you can't miss. Also a DVD for movies. Internet availability is at the mercy of the supplier.
If you wish to use the land for events, you must apply for special rate. Let us know.
Gloucester Downtown (10 min), Yorktown (25min), Williamsburg/Newport News (35-40min), Richmond/Hampton/Norfolk (1hr). Bush Gardens, Water Country, Kings Dominion, Winery/Brewerys/Distilleries.
Depending upon our travel, we may or may not be available. Ask. We can help with travel plans or give privacy at your request.
Cottage power is wind and solar supplemented. Access to pier, fishing & crabbing, fishing licenses available nearby (if you stay on the property and fish from shore or the pier you don't need a license, if you take a boat out you will need a license), crabbing license not required).
We do have shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, lotion, toilet paper and paper towels supplied in the cottage. If you don't see them, ask. The cottage has a full kitchen with microwave, oven, full fridge with some condiments, and almost every utensil you may need...even for cooking the crabs you are going to catch in the crab pots on the pier! But it is a cottage, not a gormet kitchen.
If you need something special, or don't have what you need, please contact us and let us know.
The hot tub is 'salt' and will make your skin feel slick until you get out and dry.
We look forward to having you!
No extreme partying. Smoking outside the buildings please. Hot tub, sauna and pool are outside owner's house, but must be quiet after 10pm if using them. There is a trick to opening hot tub cover, please contact us before trying to open.
Please pull sheets, pillow cases, duvees, towels and put into laundry basket at front door. No deep cleaning necessary but please clean up after yourself. Clean your dishes and vacuum after yourself if needed.
Most importantly, go on adventures on the 28 acre property, use the kayaks, swimming pool, sauna, and hot tub! Have a great time!
