Property description

The Coral Cottage, aptly named for its beachy exterior color, sits a stone's throw from the riverbank. The Potomac River, which is 4 miles wide at this location, can be viewed inside through large windows or outside from the front porch or from double chairs at the river's edge. Hardwood floors and tasteful decor throughout the cottage please the eye, enhanced by the natural light from the many windows. There are two sitting areas in the front room -- one with a comfy couch and flat-screen TV for movie viewing and the other with chairs for reading and chatting. The kitchen is open to the front room with a sitting bar between. The bathroom with tub/shower and private bedroom are screened from the front of the house. Through the back door in the kitchen, there is a covered porch.

During your relaxing stay at our cottage, wake up to sunrise over the river and then enjoy your morning coffee on the front porch as you watch osprey and cormorants fish for their breakfast. Then hop on a bike* and take an easy, scenic 3-mile ride along the river and bayside. Or jump in your rented golf cart to tool into town to a quaint shop or family-run restaurant -- no chain stores here! A 10-minute walk or a 2-minute bike ride will bring you into town to the public beach, town fishing pier, visitor's center, marina or museum. Nearby wineries, historic sites and parks provide opportunities for other daytime activities. Nighttime activities range from star-gazing and wine/tapa sampling at The Tide's Market to tiki bar hopping and casino gambling at The Riverboat.

* Bicycles can be provided upon request

Car: Necessary

Colonial Beach is a golf-cart community with a retro 1940's/50's feel and beachy look. It appeals to young couples, families, and retired folks who appreciate quaintness and want to avoid the cookie-cutter beach resort scene. It's great for biking and walking within the town, fishing and boating on the river and visiting parks (historic and otherwise) and wineries nearby. Local businesses provide opportunities for shopping (antique/thrift/consignment shops), dining out (restaurants, coffee shop, gourmet markets), and entertainment (tiki bars, gambling casino, special events).

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My wife and I have spent the last 3 decades getting to know Colonial Beach and growing to love its slower pace and unique charm. Although we have experience with rentals through our work, The Coral Cottage is our first vacation rental home.

Why the Owner Chose Colonial Beach:
In 2011, we worked to restore this small cottage, attempting to keep its best features and at the same time opening up its interior by removing some walls and expanding its exterior views and natural light by replacing smaller windows with larger ones.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We think the cottage is in an ideal location with it's river frontage and quieter setting... yet convenient to the amenities of the town.
