Welcome to The Yellow Door Cottage!

Welcome to The Yellow Door Cottage! Couldn't pass up a shot of the fabulous rug!  Loved the colors; had to have it! A view down the hall the the bedroom and bathroom. A peak into the bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom!  Small but functional.  A large wardrobe to store and hang. The view from the bedroom down the hallway. Coming back to the living room. Another angle of the living room.  Lots of light throughout the cottage. Gardening is beginning.  Love our flying pelican! Big back yard!

                            I actually stayed for two months and I could not have been any happier with my choice as I looked at several homes to fit my needs for my mini-sabbatical. The amenities, layout of the home and pictures provided on the site are spot on of what one would expect when they arrive. The property was clean and had updated appliances and furnishings throughout. Andi and her husband were readily available via phone or email if a question arose or if you were to lock yourself out of the home...yes, I admit it. There is however, a convenient lockbox on the porch with a spare key that saved the day. The area of Colonial Beach is very friendly, peaceful and laid back. I enjoyed the food a Dennisons Market on several occasions...it's a family affair and you'll feel right at home. My best times were spent on the porch in the mornings with my coffee and book or walks along the beach watching the sunrise. The sunsets on the bayside this time of year are just as spectacular too. I would definitely recommend the Yellow Door Cottage! Thanks a million Andi and family. This is definitely what I needed and you were great to work with. D Fleming

                            Owner response: Hi Dustan, Thank you so much for your lovely review! It was a pleasure having you stay at The Yellow Door. You were the perfect guest and I was so happy that our first long term guest was you! I'm so pleased that you liked the cottage and Colonial Beach! We love this funky little town and glad you did too. Andi

                            I took my husband to the Little Yellow Door Cottage for his birthday weekend getaway. I had never been to Colonial Beach and had no idea what to expect. Suffice it to say.... I WAS THRILLED :) This cottage was quaint, charming, cozy and more than adequately stocked for all of our needs for the visit. It was conveniently located close to the Pier/Beach and everything in town that we needed while we were there. I can't imagine staying anywhere else at Colonial Beach any time we go back (and we definitely will).... Andi has done a GREAT job on this remodel ... great little getaway... I highly recommend this location without any reservation.

                            Owner response: Hi Dana, Thank you so much for your lovely review! I am happy that you enjoyed yourselves. Colonial Beach is a really fun, funky, little town. Everything you could want is right there. I hope you do come back for another visit. I really enjoy the beach in the Fall as well as the Summer! Best regards, Andi

                            My husband and two boys absolutely loved this cottage. It was the perfect size for us. Very neat, clean and decorated just beautifully. The owner is very easy to work with, very responsive and really goes out of her way to ensure that your family is comortable and happy. There is a large back yard, an adorable front porch, a kitchen that we cooked all of our meals in. We were able to bike everywhere, visiting the coffee shop, the thrift store, the fishing store, etc. The owner provides towels and linens and beach towels, beach chairs, soaps and shampoos in the bathroom and the mattresses on both the bed and the foldout couch were very comfortable. I highly recommend this cottage. It is small and quaint...we felt fortunate to be able to stay in this cottage and plan to return.

                            The cottage is very cozy and homey. The owners did a lovely job of renovating and restoring it. The location is great, too, within two blocks of the beach, and a block or two of a number of restaurants. A very relaxing stay.

                            Loved the cottage, perfect getaway for two! We had fun fishing from the town pier and actually caught enough fish for several meals! It was fun motoring around town in a golf cart. Denson's Grocery has excellent seafood if you want to cook, the crabcakes are awesome! We also went out for dinner several times to some very good restaurants. Peace, quiet and disconnect from the fast pace of our everyday lives, this getaway was perfect!

                            Owner response: Hi Connie Thank you for your lovely review! I'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay and were out and about at the beach. Denson's is one of our favorite must stop places at the beach and there are some really restaurants as well. I know you're coming back and appreciate that you think enough of the cottage to do so! Again, I appreciate you taking the time to submit a review! Best regards, Andi

                            We loved our stay at the Yellow Door Cottage! The remodeling/updating is fresh and thoughtfully-done. It's the perfect size for a couple or small family. The neighborhood is safe and very well-kept, and a short walk brings you to the beach and the main street. We walked everywhere, but bikes would be perfect here, too! We enjoyed several restaurants, a coffee shop, and local ice cream, but we also cooked in the cottage, which was great. If you're a bird enthusiast, you'll love the Osprey families! Last, but not least, we had fun looking at all the golf carts in the community, especially the personalized ones. We would absolutely rent the Yellow Door Cottage again!

                            Owner response: Hi Meredith, Thank you for your lovely review! I'm so happy that you enjoyed the cottage. I do hope you'll come back and visit again. We also just love the funkiness of the beach! Best regards, Andi

                            Wonderful little cottage close to the water. Perfect for a couple or couple with small children. All the amenities one needs from Internet, high definition TV, washer/dryer, to movies and toys! Decor is lovely. Close to restaurants, beach, and local stores. We highly recommend it!

                            Colonial beach has so much to offer as does this cottage! Just steps away from all the action I don't believe you will find a better place. Relax on the porch or just enjoy the cozy charm. Why battle the bridge when this hidden gem is right in your backyard.

                          Year Purchased: 2013

                          About the owner: Hi! My husband and I walked into The Yellow Door cottage last year and I fell in love with it! I always wanted to own a little beach cottage and this one spoke to me. We purchased The Yellow Door in February 2013 and began working on it immediately. The cottage was totally renovated. New paint throughout, granite counter tops, new stove, tankless water heater, and big storage unit in the kitchen for dishes, food, etc. The bathroom floor was replaced with retro looking ceramic tile and granite topped with a vessel that looks pretty beachie to me! The bedroom was totally remodeled; removing the large closet and replacing it with a large IKEA wardrobe. A new queen size antique iron bed replaced the double bed and a small TV was included on the wall. The not so new door to the bedroom will be replaced with a period 'french' door soon; maybe by the time you arrive! The large glass panes will be covered in rice paper to provide privacy while letting light pass through. The cottage has ceilings that are just shy of 10', giving that very open feeling. It's bright (4 windows in the living room alone!) and a window in every other room, including the hallway. We've had a great time renovating this property and will be working on the yard, which is soooo large and prime for planting wonderful flowers and shrubs. Planned for the future is a screen room for summer meals and a hammock for napping! There is a lot of work to do in the yard. There is a lot of space for parking your cars, jet skis, and boats, and we're working on killing the weeds and getting the gravel back in the driveway. We're almost there. All the gravel has been removed that covered the sidewalk in front of the cottage. Please join us in loving this little cottage as much as we love it! It is very sweet and we've had the best time (Ok, I probably had more fun than Paul) renovating! Enjoy!

                          Why the Owner Chose Colonial Beach:
                          If you're traveling as a couple or with 1 or 2 children, why rent something large that you don't need? The Yellow Door Cottage only has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom (with tub) and has a comfortable, queen-size sofa bed in the living room. Everything in the cottage was just renovated, so clean, clean, clean. There is lots of room in the driveway for your jet skis and parking, which is always at a premium at the beach. We are within walking distance of everything on the beach. Located on the Point, you can see the Potomac River and Monroe Bay from the porch in the Fall/Winter, and from the sidewalk during the Summer. And, you can walk to the cute restaurants and shops. We're a block away from The Lighthouse Restaurant with Thai French food to die for! If cute is what you're looking for, this is the place!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Parking, parking, parking! If you've been to Colonia Beach, you know how tough it is to park. The Yellow Door Cottage has great off-street parking for cars, jet skis, or a boat. Located on the Point, we're within walking distance of everything that is happening during the summer. This is the place to be for location and comfort!
