"I recently booked a group ranging from toddlers to seniors for a stay at this location. When we turned into the driveway for this property, it was a "booking.yeah" moment for the group! The view here is spectacular. Several in our group had made plans for area activities but canceled these as the week progressed in favor of enjoying time at the property. Everything that is advertised on this site is true, but the house is far better than advertised. From the thoughtful extras the owners have put in the home to the cleanliness and quality of the property, this location will be one of our favorites for years to come. We have already referred others to make reservations for next year!
We also rented the guesthouse for our stay and this additional building was MUCH nicer than expected. If you are considering the extra building, it is just as enjoyable as the main house.
While it is true that the location is away from major roads and businesses, grocery stores, Wal-Mart, and shopping are a shorter drive than we anticipated. The fishing, pool, and views were wonderful.
This was one of the more relaxing experiences my group has enjoyed. I highly recommend this location to all interested parties!"

"We were a large group of friends enjoying all that Colonial Beach has to offer. The house has an open floor plan, large rooms and a fantastic porch area. Although our stay was during a colder month, the pool looked inviting. Wonderful water views from the side porch and we spent most of our time enjoying this part of the house. The bedrooms were large and the accommodations were comfortable. This property would suit a large group of family or friends. All activities and restaurants are nearby, some within walking distance. The owners went above and beyond!!! Highly recommend this property for your visit to Colonial Beach. Don't be surprised if some of the neighbors stop by for a drink ~ everyone is super friendly."

"Three cheers for Mary & Captain Billy! Very accommodating owners, friendly, helpful, just all-around great. The little studio-cabin was just what we wanted: simple, no-frills, quiet, secluded, clean, comfortable, and off the beaten path. We used the canoe, paddling out of the inlet and onto a tiny beach, nearby. The gentle waves thrilled our young children. The field of fireflies and sky full of stars were magical. Thank you for a wonderful stay!"

"We've stayed in many different places we've found on VRBO, heck we've OWNED a place we listed on VRBO, but this one was really special. The grounds themselves are what people say they are, they are like a park, or a Botanic Garden! I didn't know what Crepe Myrtles were before I got there, but I do now, and they are stunning! The HUGE pines are awesome, the entire grounds are incredible. The house itself is a step back into old Virginia, with books in the library a hundred years old! The dock was our "hang-out" spot, we had blue crab almost every night, the only time we didn't was when we didn't care to! The oysters, OMG, the oysters are RIGHT THERE in the mud, by the thousands!!! We ate them until we popped, and they were wonderful. The pool area is perfect...
But I have to say one of the features of the place the owner doesn't highlight is her Caretaker, who lives around the corner! I had a mishap with an oyster (4 stitches, actually!) and her Caretaker was there in less than 3 minutes with a complete "go bag" with everything needed to clean and treat the wound before I got to the Hospital to get stitched up. I'd add her as a major feature to this place, what price can you put on THAT when you're in a remote area?!
Do NOT miss the White Dog Bistro in Matthews when you go! WONDERFUL mid-1800's building and the food was sensational. Olivia's in Gloucester was very nice too!"
