Colonial Beach cottage description

The Beachcomber II enjoys a great in-town location....steps to the beach, restaurants, entertainment, and shops. We are family and pet friendly with a fenced yard and a fun playground just through the gate in the backyard.

The Beachcomber II features hardwood floors and soft relaxing colors throughout. You will pass under the dogwood trees through the front door and enter into the sunroom, into a large livingroom with cable television, pick your bedroom and get ready for family meals in the eat-in kitchen. Your choice of bedrooms is a sunny twin room with built-in-bookcases, a master bedroom, with queen bed and private bath or a queen size bedroom across from the second bathroom with clawfoot tub/shower. A bonus kids loft is upstairs with two twin beds, and window seat; we recommend it for for kids.

While enjoying your stay with us, we have provided an outdoor dining space under the trees with a gas grill. WIFI is provided.


Beachcomber II is a charming cottage, great for families, couples or girl's getaway. We began welcoming guests to our first cottage, Beachcomber I on Hawthorn in 2011 and we so enjoyed giving guests a great place to relax and get-away. With the success of Beachcomber I, we bought this charming cottage in 2012. After a total renovation the Beachcomber II; a 3 bedroom, 2 bath vacation cottage with kid's sleeping loft is steps to the beach, shops and restaurants. Each year, we spend time in the off season to see what we need to replace or add. This year we upgraded one of the bathrooms and built a new shed for bikes and beach toys, added new Adirondack chairs under the front trees. Please come and enjoy!

The beauty of the Beachcomber is it is perfect for families and couples. The cottage features one floor living, unless you are a kid and want to escape to the kid's loft. We have a large fenced yard with a gate that opens to the town playground. We welcome well-behaved dogs; pet fee applies.

The enjoyment of the Beachcomber II isn't limited to the house. Along with the fenced yard; we feature a gas grill and outside dining under the trees, right outside the kitchen door. great for grilling out and 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, which you can see through the trees!

Colonial Beach, Virginia; 60 miles from DC,but a world away... 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 it's 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, and great crabs.

Spring and early summer is a beautiful time at the Beach, to enjoy a much quieter waterfront and explore the region's history and wineries!

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

A vacation to remember! In 2011, we introduced the Beachcomber I, located on Hawthorne Ave. After great acceptance by visitors, we purchased a smaller vacation rental property two blocks away; Beachcomber II on Wilder to great guest reviews in 2012. The Beachcomber II; a 3 bedroom, 2 bath vacation home, steps to the beach, shops and restaurants...please come and enjoy!!!

The beauty of the Beachcomber II is it is perfect for families and couples. The Beachcomber II is offers one floor living with a bonus kids loft. The home features a a master bedroom with private bath, a queen size bedroom, and a twin sized bedroom; on the first floor.

The enjoyment of the Beachcomber isn't limited to the house. It has a fenced yard, great for children and pets. From the eat-in kitchen you can view one of the town's playgrounds; the back gate opens right to the park. There is a tree covered picnic table with gas grill. The location is terrific, steps to restaurants, entertainment, shops and just one block from the beach and bathhouse.

Colonial Beach, Virginia; 60 miles from DC,but a world away... 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 it's 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, bird watching and discover the Chesapeake Wine Trail. The charm of of Colonial Beach is its unhurried pace of a small town and the enjoyment of several great waterfront restaurants, waterfront live bands on weekends during the summer, assorted antique/consignment shops, art galleries,and great crabs.

We have learned from our guests that Colonial Beach is a great launch-off place to explore the history of the region. Our guests have made day trips to DC, Fredericksburg, Manassas, Charlottesville, Williamsburg; all under 2 hours away...what a tremendous history trail. Additionally, two great amusement parks are an easy drive; Kings Dominion (1 Hour) and Busch Gardens Old Country and Water Park (2 Hours).

While Summer is the peak season; Spring and Fall are great seasons to enjoy the Northern Neck. Summer has many events; the Potomac River Festival , Blues Festival 4th of July, and International Jet Ski Races.

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

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My husband and I, who live and work in the DC area, fell in love with Colonial Beach on our first visit in 2005 and bought a weekend house shortly thereafter. Since graduating from George Mason University; I entered the hospitality business. Being a cottage owner is something I love. It enables me to improve and beautify properties and provide a nice place for people to enjoy their vacations.

Why the Owner Chose Colonial Beach:
In 2009 we bought our first vacation rental, Beachcomber I. That house was a partnership with my sister and my husband's brother; it was a total renovation. I found though that people really enjoyed themselves and discovering Colonial Beach and the area. A year later, a childhood friend that I grew up with in Wellesley, Massachusetts called when she found this listing on the internet. This house, which became Beachcomber II didn't need nearly the amount of work as our first project and had the same great location; steps from town and beach...so we jumped in and started the work....hope you enjoy!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Beachcomber II has a great location, or as guests tell me...it is a gem. I know they enjoy the location steps to town, beaches and a playground just through the back gate. Also it is mostly on one floor, except the kid's loft.
