Our island cottage is located on a privately owned 15 acre island in the York River. The cottage is only 2 miles from all convenient amenities but you are in your own quiet, secluded waterfront setting with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. The island is less than 15 minutes to historic Yorktown's Riverwalk shopping and beach community. Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Busch Gardens and Water Country USA are only 20 minutes via the Colonial Parkway. This is one of the most gorgeous, tranquil scenic drives in America.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We love fishing, gardening, long walks and sunset golf cart rides with our children and visiting grandchildren to count the egrets and heron.
Why the Owner Chose Gloucester Point, VA, USA:
The property is a true getaway but so convenient to everything in the area. We moved to the main house in 2006 and purchased the cottage in 2012 to have available for famiy, friends and guests. Everyone loves to come to and stay on the island!
