Why William Garber chose Colonial Beach

Centered between Washington, DC and Richmond, this Colonial Beach gem is a hidden refuge that provides a quick getaway, yet a complete change of pace. Nicknamed the Playground on the Potomac, the town is a short walk or drive away with restaurants, the Pier, and the Riverboat Off Track Betting. Full of history, George Washington was born near here at what is now the George Washington Birthplace National Monument. Alexander Hell maintained a summer home in Colonial Beach, the "Bell House." Sloan Wilson, author of "The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit," retired and died here. Perfect for any season, nap in the hammock in the spring, swim, fish and grill in the summer, tour the fall foliage, and curl up next to the fireplace in the winter.

What makes this House unique

Little touches will give you big opportunities to make the most of your time here. Between the waterfall pool, swings, hammocks, outdoor cooking station with propane grill, retro refrigerator, and even imbedded lighted countertops will make you fall in love with this private refuge. (P.S.- The sunsets are the best kept secret- don't tell!)

Bill and his wife were very accommodating and took the time to go over the house with us. If you are looking for a house to just escape and relax this is it.

                                                              We all enjoyed the dock and pool. Fishing was excellent, we caught a little of everything and it was so peaceful for us late fishermen. The home was very spacious and supplied with everything you would possible need. A wonderful place to spend a vacation with a family.

                                                              Great vacation.

                                                              The house and landscape were beautiful. We had a great vacation, Our grandsons loved the fishing and crabbing. They spent most of their time on the dock. The pool was beautiful with a waterfall at the one end. The only drawback to our vacation was nothing to do in town. Many restaurants were closed on Monday and Tuesday.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you for your nice review. So happy you enjoyed our River House. You guys were great and left the house in great condition. Hope you come back soon.


                                                              Great Time Had By All!

                                                              We recently rented Bill's house for a week and had a wonderful time. The house was clean, plenty of open space, bedrooms and we had 7 adults and little ones with us as well! The kitchen was probably the most stocked kitchen we've come across (we've been renting properties since 2011) and there were 2 of them as well. We did have a slight issue with the pool, though no fault of Bill's, and he was on it the same day! That says a lot. Its feels good to rent from people who take pride in satisfying their guests. The kids loved the pool (as did the adults!) and everything you need is only about 5 or 10 minutes away - so convenient. We look forward to coming back and enjoying another family vacation. Thanks Bill!

                                                              I loved it!

                                                              My family met here from east to west for a family reunion. The place is beautiful, clean and tastefully decorated. We had great weather, warm every day and we sure enjoyed the pool. Mr. Garber was very nice and very helpful. I highly recommend this rental. We want to come back next year!
