Colonial Beach house description

A family vacation to remember! House was newly renovated prior to becoming a vacation rental in 2011. In the winter of 2013; was added to the livingroom and dining room... our guests love the improvements we have made!; Our4 bedroom, 2 bath vacation home, is family and pet friendly; steps to the beach, shops and restaurants, please come and enjoy!!!

The beauty of the Beachcomber I is it is perfect for families and couples. The first floor bedroom and bathroom, give a couple looking to get-away great one-story living. If you have a family with you, the three bedrooms and one bath upstairs is great for family and friends.

The enjoyment of the Beachcomber isn't limited to the house. It has a fenced yard, great for children and pets. A kids clubhouse is in the backyard. Relax in the hammock under the holly tree, or read a book under the Magnolia Tree. Also we feature a gas grill and covered picnic area; great for crab picking! And just steps from the house are restaurants, shops, the beach, and fishing pier...be sure to get a soft serve ice cream at Nancy's or visit with Rocky across the street at Densons for great sandwiches and delicous hard scooped ice cream!




Colonial Beach, Virginia...the Gateway to the Northern Neck of Virginia.... a beach front haven, less than 2 hours from DC, along the Potomac River. Many say, it is place that time has forgotten with its slow pace, friendly people who wave as they drive past you on their golf carts, wide beaches where the Potomac River is 4 to 6 miles wide, within minutes to historical attractions; George Washington's Birthplace; the Lee Family Home, Stratford Plantation, explore Westmoreland State Park, and find Shark's teeth and more, great boating, fishing,crabbing, and discover the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail, Westmoreland Berry Farm. several great waterfront restaurants, waterfront live bands on weekends during the summer, great crabs. Just a quick hour away is Kings Dominion Theme Park; featuring great rides and waterpark.

Thanks for looking and be prepared to fall in love with Colonial Beach and the Northern Neck!

Colonial Beach is a along the Potomac River; 60 miles down river from Washington DC...so close, but a world away!

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: There are three families that own The Beachcomber. Each of us contribute our special talents from renovation, decoration, marketing, and management. I have worked in the hotel industry all of my career and enjoy welcoming people to our home or to several of the rental properties we own; so I speak on behalf of all of the owners; we look forward to having you and your family as our guest.

                          Why the Owner Chose Colonial Beach:
                          My husband George and I first discovered Colonial Beach on a day trip adventure from Chevy Chase, Maryland about 7 years ago. After several weekends, we bought a small cottage. Through the years, we have had lots of friends and family stay with us. All of them have fallen in love with the Town of Colonial Beach. Last summer my sister and George's brother started to look at houses; and together in February of this year; all three families joined together to buy this house built in 1940. All of us, with help of some great professionals have been working hard through a renovation to make it ready for guests this summer. We chose this house because of its great spaces, yard, and a location that is convenient to everything the beach has to offer.
