Property description

Try n Rest
In the Historic Northern Neck of Virginia

Try n Rest. The name says it all, really. This vintage 4 bedroom cottage, with a new family room addition, sits on the shore at the mouth of the Potomac River overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. Try n Rest has a fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning, 2 full baths and a large screened in porch. It can accommodate 6-8 guests. A view of the Bay is enjoyed from the living room, porch and front bedrooms.

From the back door, walk 50’ to a large raised deck which overlooks the Bay and the broad white sand beach. Lying around with a good book is enough activity for some, but for those who prefer moving about, there are plenty of outdoor adventures. You can:
- fish off the shore for spot and croaker
- take long walks down the beach,
- stick a crab pot in at the shoreline,
- take your boat into a three mile long salt water creek
- play croquet or horseshoes in the large back yard
- ride your bikes on miles of flat quiet roads.
Public boat launching sites are within a 15 minute drive at the Great Wicomico River and the Little Wicomico River.

Try n Rest has no TV on purpose as we find this to be a place to enjoy games, books, and conversation.

You have selected an area not only steeped in early Virginia history, but also with memorable restaurants, such as historic 18th Century Hughlett’s Tavern and waterfront seafood restaurants in Reedville. A fifteen minute drive from Try n Rest takes you to Reedville (check out the Victorian houses and the Waterman’s Museum); a thirty minute ride reaches Irvington, and White Stone (towns with resort shopping and restaurants). Winery tours are in the area. You will discover Antique stores and Junque shops all through the area. Public golf courses are available at Tides Inn Resort and in the town of Callao. Finally, from Reedville, you can board a Tangier Island Cruise.

Couples tell us this quiet and beautiful spot is a perfect place for a romantic getaway or to celebrate an anniversary.

This is a great location for kids. The wide, sandy, safe beach leads to water with soft, sandy bottom that very gradually gets deep. Sandbars provide splashy water play with water less than 1 foot deep. There is a 14 foot restored waterman's crab boat parked on the front yard for kids to play in. Numerous indoor and yard games are provided. Seaside wildlife abounds. Fishing from shore is sometimes successful in catching small fish.

Try N Rest is located 2.5 hours southeast of Northern Virginia/Washington D.C. area, or 2 hours northeast of Richmond, Virginia.

For information and reservations, call Reid Carter at 804-651-1683.
