Yorktown cottage description

'Huzzah!' (A 'colonial cheer') and Welcome! Your quaint and charming Yorktown cottage awaits you. Formerly the studio of renowned folk artist Nancy Thomas (visit her galleries in Yorktown & Williamsburg)this newly renovated (Jun 09) cottage is located in a quiet and scenic neighborhood on the Yorktown Battlefield on a bluff just above the York River. Your home away from home is just less than a mile across the battlefield to Historic Yorktown (a nice walk around the earthworks or a very short drive) and one-half mile from the Yorktown Coast Guard Training Station. The neighborhood of about 40 homes was laid out in the 1920's as an area of 'summer retreats' for folks from Richmond to escape the summer heat to swim, fish and crab in the York River. It is the only neighborhood completely within the confines of the Colonial National Historic Park, and sits directly on the Revolutionary War Battlefield (Oct 1781) and between the Union and Confederate lines on the Civil War Battlefield (Battle of Yorktown, May, 1862). Your hosts Rob and Sheri can provide as much information as you desire about local history, attractions, and the local area.

Your cottage includes everything you need to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Most folks come to explore the Historic Triangle (Jamestown-Williamsburg-Yorktown). But there is also Busch Gardens, Water Country USA, and a host of other activities nearby. The Colonial National Historic Park and adjacent Newport News Park have over 25 miles of tour roads and trails perfect for runners/walkers/hikers/bicycles...(your bicycles are ready!) In fact, Yorktown is the East Coast Terminus for a transcontinental bike route and the scene of numerous Peninsula Track Club and Colonial Road Runners Club races each year. Walking the mile long Riverwalk (along the York River) from the National Park Service HQ to the Yorktown Victory Center is a popular activity as well as overland hiking to the many little known Civil War sites within the park (we'll tell you where they are!)

Your all-new full kitchen has everything you'll need to prepare any meals you wish. We'll start you out with coffee and teas, bottled waters and toiletries. If you'd like to dine out great seafood is available evenings at the River Room (Duke of York Hotel) or Nick's Riverwalk Restaurant both right on Water Street with York River views. The Schooner Alliance (at our Water Street docks) is available for mid-day or romantic evening sailing. Don't miss a breakfast or a lunch at the Island Cafe also at the Duke of York Hotel.

Your cottage is a beautiful drive up the Colonial Parkway (3 lanes, no stop signs or stop lights) directly into Colonial Williamsburg and on from there to Historic Jamestowne. Perfectly located, your personal retreat is also well suited for painting, writing, or those doing historical research at Colonial Williamsburg and nearby sites.

Very nearby is the Yorktown Coast Guard Training Station. Graduations occur almost monthly. The cottage is a perfect place for parents and spouses to stay and only one-half mile away. Also, a perfect place to stay to attend graduations at the College of William and Mary.

There are five beautiful golf courses within 15 miles...your clubs are provided. The Yorktown fishing pier requires no license, we have all your fishing gear waiting.

Holidays and special events are a great reason to visit Yorktown. A perfect place to stay if attending a wedding at the historic 'Freight Shed' on Water Street. The 4th of July in Yorktown features all day activities, an evening concert, and a spectacular fireworks display over the York River! 'Yorktown Day' (19 Oct) is the anniversary of the British surrender at Yorktown and always a day long celebration with ceremonies (many visitors from France). From Thanksgiving through Christmas Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg have continual activities throughout the holiday season that are a joy to all. Yorktown is an all-year-long fun place to be...your cottage awaits you!
