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 9 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. One summer my sister and George's brother started to look at houses; and together in February of 2011; 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.
The Unique Benefits at this House: What are guests share with us they love about the house is comfort, location, and space.
Let me start with space. On vacation being together is fun, but sometimes different groups want to do different things and this house is great for being together, yet finding your own space. The house features two living spaces, sun porch, eat-in kitchen and dining space. Additionally, the large fenced yard with the covered picnic area, shaded and sunny areas, and playhouse offers something for everyone.
You can't beat the location if you want to take advantage of everything the Colonial Beach has to offer! House is just 2 blocks from the beach and fishing pier. It is less than one block from restaurants, library, museums, and churches for most denominations.
Comfort is a combination of the space and decor. Our guests always comment that it is a pretty house. They are comfortable and enjoy the well stocked kitchen, games, books, toys in the playhouse, assorted bikes and beach stuff.
