The Chesapeake Bay is well-known as a bird lovers paradise. From the beach house you will see local osprey, great blue heron, bald eagles and pelican diving and catching fish. You may see a thousand Canadian geese arriving together to spend the night near shore. Cardinals, blue birds and other song birds also abound among the magnolias, azaleas, crepe myrtles, dogwoods, and towering pine trees.

Why the Owner Chose Reedville: We had never been to the 'Northern Neck' of Virginia when we drove the 2.5 hours from Northern Virginia in late 2004 to look for a second home where our children, relatives, and friends could slow down and relax with us. We wanted a place on the water where we could swim, boat, kayak and play in the sand. We wanted a place without traffic, fences, and fast food restaurants. We wanted a place where our dogs could play in the woods, our kids could climb trees, and we could all spend quality family time together. We found exactly what we were looking for in this home.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We enjoy the sunrises over the Bay, relaxing on the hammock, lounging on the beach, and playing badminton, bocce and volleyball. We enjoy crab cake dinners and ice cream at the local ice-cream parlor. We enjoy biking and walking the country roads. We enjoy the local wineries, farmers markets and museums. We enjoy kayaking, fishing. paddleboarding and boating on the Bay.
