Williamsburg cottage description

Jamestown-Williamsburg Area, Surry Va. A unique cozy Beach Cottage. Awaken to the sun rising over Jamestown Island--the birth of a nation. Sip coffee and walk the sandy beach. Enjoy the panoramic expanse of the James River. Retrace Pocahontas’s travel to Jamestown Island now enjoyed on a 20-minute ferry crossing with your car. Arrange a romantic dinner at the river prepared by a local chef or order a massage by a professional masseuse…just some of the possible pleasures at the 'Rivah' Cottage. Jamestown (3/4 miles), Colonial Williamsburg (5 mi), and Yorktown offer multiple days of enjoyment. In Surry, Smith’s Fort (2 mi), Bacon’s Castle, and the owner’s favorite, the beautiful 265-acre Chippokes State Park (a Plantation Home and working Farm) on the James River not to be missed. Shopping delights, restaurants and golf courses are advertised in a book full of maps and experiences to help you plan your day…or not! Beach chairs, novels or yoga make relaxing alternatives.

Option #1: A local Chef, Jane, offers an array of sumptuous menus (emailed upon request). Services range from Breakfast-in-Bed, picnics to go, meals dropped off or cooked on site. Jane worked for many years for Fetzer Vineyards in California before opening her very own 'Dish Cafe and Wine Shop'. Since moving to Surry six years ago, she has worked at area restaurants in Williamsburg and for caterers providing meals for special events. Consider treating yourself to one of her many selections or custom order your own menu.

Option #2: Enjoy an afternoon being pampered and order a massage in the privacy of the cottage for $70/hr. Contact the Owner for arrangements.

Option #3: Enjoy a motorboat ride down the James River ending with a meal at a river-marina cafe. Also, the State Park near the Cottage offers morning and evening canoeing, fishing providing bait and rods, fossil walks hunting for sharks' teeth, whale bone and the state fossil, Chesapecten Jeffersonian. There is also a guided River House tour by candlelight.
We supply hundreds of suggestions for filling your day to make your visit the first of many. You can never finish seeing and doing all that the Williamsburg area has to offer.
