"I read the reviews for this home, as well as the pictures and we were excited to be visiting VA for the first time. I admit, as we meandered over the bridge from the Williamsburg/Yorktown area, where we had just spent the previous 2 nights in a condo and headed into Gloucester, we wondered if our decision to stay in a home further away from the heart of Williamsburg was such a good idea. I am thrilled to tell you that ALL those questioning thoughts disappeared once we pulled up to this beautiful home sitting on this magnificent piece of property! Even though we had read the reviews and viewed the pictures, we still were in simple AWE! As we toured the inside of the home, we kept getting even more excited. The interior is exceptionally clean, delightfully modern and peacefully decorated in a simple, uncluttered palette of creams, whites & wood tones, accented w/ pops of coral & blue to bring in the "beachy" feel. The interior creamy painted horizontal paneling on all the walls is done with excellent workmanship and creates the cottage "feel" inside! The Master suite is truly master! Spacious with a king bed in a rattan wingback head & footboard, a pull out sofa, a regular sofa, 2 night stands, tv and still loads of space to walk on beautiful wood floors and take in gorgeous un encumbered water views from all 3 sides!!! The master bath is spacious and modernly appointed. An unexpected surprise of luxury? Entering the walk in shower & discovering not one, but, 2 showerheads! One being a rain head mounted on the ceiling. This shower was always enjoyed after a day of kayaking, canoeing or sight seeing! We soon found the drive into Jamestown, Williamsburg, Yorktown, etc, simple. We might leave one morning, for ex: around 8:30 after cooking breakfast & we would be parking at Busch Gardens by 9:30am. Then after many rides and walking the park, we would leave by 3pm and by 4pm, our kids were heading out in a canoe on the river & we were relaxing w/ the tranquil breezes coming off the water, settling in to enjoy the 2nd half of an amazing day on vacation! The water views from EVERY window was so ministering to the soul, that preparing meals in the beautiful kitchen was a joy! Grilling under the house while playing games of corn hole was also so much fun! Staying here was THE BEST COMBINATION! Sightseeing, history, enjoying the theme parks coupled with an equal level of enjoyment of peaceful serenity and a wonderful place to exhale at the end of a day."
