About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16), 4300 square feet

Eastover was part of a land grant in 1637 from the King of England to Henry Brown. Over the years, land was both acquired and subdivided into different parcels, leaving 283 acres, including the Manor house to the Baptists. Although the Manor house was not Henry Brown's house, it still has been of historical importance to many people. According to one historical record, the Manor house was built in the 1880's.

The Peninsula Baptist Association purchased Eastover in 1972. Eastover has served as a place of retreat for church groups seeking God's guidance and as a host for organizations conducting summer camps. We continually endeavor to make Eastover a place where God is welcome to speak to His people.

Our guests enjoy a time of peace and relaxation at the Manor. It has breathtaking views of the James River from a 100-foot elevation, one-half mile of beach and 283 acres of woods, lake, ravine and fields. Depending on what time of year will determine what you may see when you wake in the morning and look out your window. In the spring and summer you may see a baby fawn cuddling with its mama, or smell the fragrance of fresh cut hay in the air. The fall brings beautiful colors all around and glimpses of squirrels storing up for the winter. If your stay is in the winter you may be so blessed as to see a fresh blanket of snow on the ground and cardinals racing about to eat their red berries. You may even spot a Bald Eagle soaring in the blue sky. Whatever time of year you join us, enjoy your coffee overlooking the James River. Then take a hike down to the beach or through the woods.


Be sure and plan a day or two to visit the area plantations, Jamestown and Yorktown Settlements, Busch Gardens Theme Park or enjoy the shops of Williamsburg and Smithfield, home of the famous Smithfield Ham.

Virginia has so much to do and see; you will need more than a week to experience our beautiful state.
