Despite some challenges- it was wonderful
Our stay was very lovely- The house itself is beautiful, there were all the things we needed for shower and cooking, and it felt very welcoming.
However, we faced two challenges:
The pool, which was the main attraction we were anticipating, was close for the winter (where was not indicated on the website before), and the Wifi, due to a storm, wasn't working.
After several conversations with the house owner (who was really nice and flexible to our needs), we had an excess to the pool (the wifi came back once the storm was over).
I'm happy to recommend on this house - just make sure the pool is open if you are coming before memorial weekend.
A lovely 'away from it all' break in southern VA
We stayed in this property for a week around Thanksgiving 2015 and were impressed by its comfort and well-equipped facilities from the outset. It's a 25 minute drive from Williamsburg, and not far from Jamestown, and is set against a backdrop of managed forest. Be aware there will be hunters around the area in the game season, so it's not wise to enter the forest, but they didn't interfere with us or our stay. Set adjacent to Cary Hill Manor, a small, fascinating and unique wedding venue, it has additional facilities beyond it's size, with a lovely pool and large pool-house during the warmer months. We wished we'd been there in the summer! It's a very private spot and well suited to anyone who has a dog, as the deck can be sealed off. Robin, the manager, was very professional and always responsive and helpful, and there was excellent communication about our booking from the outset. The property has a good-sized TV and an extensive range of excellent films. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom and two bedrooms upstairs give privacy if required for a second couple staying there. We found the large bed in the downstairs bedroom very comfortable, with a good-sized walk in shower and whirlpool bath adjacent. We would definitely stay there again!
The perfect retreat!
My family has been visiting Williamsburg VA for years and this was, by far, our favorite place to stay! It is set serenely off the beaten path but not too far from all the activities. The cottage was extremely comfortable and clean. We had all intentions of doing evening activities and dining out but enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and pool so much that we cooked and stayed in every night. The pool house with the game room became our favorite evening spot as we had domino tournaments nightly......what a fabulous way to enjoy time with my children 17 and 20 years of age. Robin was exceptionally courteous and helpful as was Steve who took the time to show us around as we admired the naturally beautiful setting. We were completely mesmerized with the birds, landscape and artwork. We certainly look forward to going back....thank you for a fabulous stay!
Great Family Trip!
We visited Holly Hill with our two kids (ages 9 and 12) for a week in July. The cottage was comfortable, clean, and had all the needed amenities for a comfortable stay. We especially enjoyed the large in-ground pool! Robin was wonderful and provided directions, suggestions for restaurants, and other good tips! We hope to visit again in the future.
A perfect weekend getaway!
This was a lovely weekend with my parents and doggie. It was a beautiful, peaceful, extremely clean cottage. It had everything we needed including the R&R- a shaded deck and a wonderful pool to relax by in the evenings. Perfect hospitality- the owner and property manager were super helpful and friendly. It was secluded enough to provide some necessary down time but close enough to Williamsburg and Jamestown to go out for the afternoon. We felt right at home and I can't wait to stay again!
A private oasis!! Loved every minute!
Such a special place! Our family of 5 were comfortable and so happy on our vacation. Felt away from it all, but still close enough to experience all the area had to offer!
