Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Linda,

We had such an amazing vacation! James Ross River Plantation is awesome! My husband, son-in-law and grandkids were in their glory fishing off the pier. Of course we spent a lot of time in the pool (also amazing). I loved the dining room (the pictures don't do it justice)! It was wonderful to be able to eat our meals together. The beds were so comfortable, we all slept well. Thank you for sharing this beautiful property! We hope to be back next year.

Impossible to describe, property is simply amazing. Adults & kids alike were in heaven.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this home/property justice, it's an amazing place! The house fit all of us comfortably, we cooked every afternoon & night. Kids were in the pool all day/everyday. Took boat rides with Capt Phil, crabbed and fished off the dock, enjoyed the kayak & canoe and even brought 3 SUP's which were in constant use. You can even take them to the Seafood Market & Bar just down the river. Waterfront scene is beautiful, surrounded on 3 sides, we'll be back!

Staying at the Jame Ross is like time traveling back to the peace and calm of old Tidewater Virginia

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful celebration of our 45th anniversary at James Ross with our children and grandchildren. Our grandchildren wanted to live there forever. Their video devices were quickly replaced with hours of swimming in the great pool, fishing, watching birds and lots of wildlife, walking on the piers, fire pit and s'mores, swinging on tree swing, talking and snuggling with their grandparents as we sat by the water. Our family disconnected from the outside world and connected to each other. We enjoyed living in a wonderful old house with lots of interesting rooms and furnishings. The downstairs gun room turned into half bath was a little spooky to grandkids! They loved the porchs, staircase and comfy bedrooms. We enjoyed picking up delicious seafood by boat and car from nearby Urbanna Seafood Restaurant.Bring your family to the James Ross and create memories of enjoying nature and time together.

Simply Amazing! Could not have asked for a better vacation.

  • 5 of 5

After vacationing for the the last 8 years in Nags Head, NC my family and the 3 other families that we vacation with decided to change our venue to the James Ross River Plantation. We are so glad that we did. The place is simply amazing. Boating, fishing, crabbing, swimming, kayaking, paddle-boarding, miniature golf, Busch Gardens, Water Country, etc.; we did it all. The property is within an hour drive of Williamsburg, VA which has unlimited entertainment options if you care to leave for awhile. However, the property itself offers so much there really is no reason to leave. The air-conditioned pool house was our favorite spot during the week as the heat and humidity were ridiculous. The indoor pool is enormous and the kids had an absolute blast. The boathouse was also a nice treat as it housed a complimentary kayak, canoe and life vests for all of us to use. We also brought an additional kayak and two paddle boards so we all spent many evenings on Robinson's Creek paddling around. The boathouse could easily accommodate 2 large boats and we will definitely be bringing our boat next year. The main house was extremely comfortable and was suitable for our group of 8 adults and 8 kids. There were enough beds for 14 and we brought two twin air mattresses. The kitchen offers everything you need to prepare meals (which we did every night) and the HUGE outside grill was utilized regularly as well. The living room area was very comfortable and the kids congregated there most nights to watch movies. There were tons of board games available to us as well. The home was clean and comfortable and we were very pleased with it's condition considering it's age. The Adirondack chairs and hammock overlooking Robinson's Creek were fantastic and they were utilized each morning and evening. Linda St. George was fantastic and easy to work with. A SEVERE storm came through during our stay and she reached out to us to warn us ahead of time and then checked in with us the next day to make sure we were ok. We highly recommend the James Ross River Plantation and we know you will not be disappointed.

Wonderful family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property! The house is beautiful, clean and well stocked. It has everything you need. The beds were really comfortable. We really loved the large dining room and our family of 10 enjoyed all of our meals together with room to spare. . We also spent a lot of time on the enclosed porches. I especially enjoyed the porch off the kitchen that contains a vintage stove- so private. The pool is amazing with 2 full baths and a washer/dryer combo that's perfect for keeping bathing suits and beach towels ready for the next swim. We enjoyed many hours fishing off the pier. The grandchildren were awed by the amount of life in Robinson Creek. We also took advantage of the canoe - so peaceful! We loved the privacy and the long driveway. The people of Urbanna made us feel completely welcome. The miniature golf course is minutes away (which was great because we didn't want to leave the property for long) and was a blast! We are looking forward to coming back!

Fantastic is the best Description

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the plantation is awesome. The house, grounds, pool house, views and outdoor options are great. The house is well stocked. You can relax overlooking the water and wildlife either from inside the porches or outdoors. It is perfect for a wedding, reunion or a family get together. You will love it.
