Our waterfront beach cottage sits on a bluff overlooking the James River and Jamestown Island, with steps down to your private beach. You will have the privacy of a cottage and will be directly across the river from Jamestown and Williamsburg. The view of the river is wide open (about a mile to the left is the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry Dock and to the right is Cobham Bay)
Watch spectacular sunrises over the river from the deck or the air conditioned/heated front porch. After enjoying a day of history in Jamestown, Williamsburg, or Yorktown, or some of the other attractions Virginia has to offer, come back to relax on the 'rivah' in the privacy of your cottage. Sometimes just sitting quietly watching the movement of the water, a tug boat going by, or eagles and ospreys fishing is just what is needed after a busy day. The moon coming up over the river is as beautiful as the sunrise.
Our cottage is in a neighborhood where there are no other rental cottages, only cottages used by their owners. There are no houses behind the cottages. Once you leave the paved road, you are 0.3 mile down a lane from the start of a perfect vacation.
The free car ferry is part of the Virginia Department of Transportation and runs every 30 minutes during the day until 9 p.m. when it runs every hour during the night.

Why the Owner Chose Williamsburg: Our cottage is in a perfect location for privacy, has a beautiful view, a private beach and the James River to play in, but close to the ferry that will take you across the river to visit the sites you came to see. It is like having the best of both worlds. You will understand why the people who have a cottage here love it.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Private, beautiful view, can have fun on the 'rivah' as well as visiting Jamestown, Williamsburg, Yorktown, Busch Gardens, playing golf or shopping at the outlets.
