About the Property
Private River Cottage near Jamestown, Williamsburg, Yorktown and Busch Gardens
Watch spectacular sunrises over the river from the deck or the air conditioned/heated front porch. After enjoying a day of history in Jamestown, Williamsburg, or Yorktown, Busch Gardens, or some of the other attractions Virginia has to offer, come back to relax on the 'rivah' in the privacy of your cottage. Sometimes just watching eagles and ospreys fish, playing on the beach or in the river, or kayaking is just what is needed after a busy day. Or you can just spend a day having fun on the rivah!
The James River here at the cottage is tidal water and is clean. The tide comes in and goes out very slowly, so it is great for children to play in. It is partly salty and partly freshwater. There is not a drop-off.
The free car ferry belongs to the VA Dept of Transportation and runs 24 hours a day. When landing at Jamestown, Williamsburg is 4 miles straight down the road (about 5 min.), and it takes less than 15 minutes to get to Busch Gardens. Yorktown is a little beyond Williamsburg. The ferry dock on this side is 1 mile from the cottage.
You will have your privacy here. There are no houses behind the cottages. Once you leave the paved road, you are 0.3 mile down a lane from the start of a perfect vacation.
Two kayaks, a row boat, a canoe, and adult and children's life preservers are provided. Also provided are beach chairs, beach umbrella, cooler, and beach towels.
