Patricia and Bobby; We are blessed to have you as guest. Glad that you had good weather, and another relaxing time on the James... Happy Holidays Sincerely Janet and Rob
The cottage was quaint and clean, well stocked with supplies. The area was wonderfully quiet.
I was surprised by the house behind the cottage (not shown in pics) and donkey next door. But really only heard the cars on the shared driveway. I’d stay again. Bed was comfy! House is within a manageable drive to shopping and restaurants.
Picture-perfect stay and wonderful hosts
I couldn't ask for a better retreat from DC. The views coming into the windows at all times of day were just beautiful, and we actually decided to spend more time at the airbnb than in Richmond like we'd planned. Janet and Rob were responsive and gracious hosts and we couldn't recommend them more.
We came up for a weekend long lacrosse tournament and took the extra time to fish and enjoy the views. What a lovely place this was - and we hope to play this tournament again next year. We will be coming back but for an extended stay.
Very nice close location to Richmond Raceway. We came in for the race and stayed several days.
Beautiful setting. Walk down steps to a beautiful dock on the James River. The house is so welcoming and beautifully decorated. Everything you need is there. So very glad we chose this location for our stay.
Location, location, location Beautiful river setting with an amazing dock So much to do and not enough time to get it all in. House is terrific. Very clean with all your household needs taken care of. Our favorite place while visiting Richmond family
