About the Property
Escape to quiet, laid-back Tappahannock. Tidewater Manor is a spacious and comfortable vacation rental home where sunrise over the water is breathtaking and experiencing a full moon is a thrill! The kitchen contains everything you need for cooking. If you’d rather cook out, a gas grill is provided. Don’t want to cook at all? No problem, Tappahannock has many great places to eat including the notorious “Lowery’s Seafood Restaurant” just a couple minutes away.
This is also a dream destination for outdoor enthusiasts. The property has lots of grassy waterfront yard for games and has a private pier if you like fishing or want to bring your kayaks and canoes. The river is a popular spot for bald eagles and Essex is one of the top five counties in the state for breeding pairs. Chances of spotting an eagle while visiting are fairly good. Tidewater Manor is located in the center of the Rappahannock River Valley National Wildlife Refuge and its Hutchinson Trail, right across the street, offers accessible fishing and nature trails as well as excellent wildlife viewing opportunities.
A couple miles up the road you can catch a round of golf at Hobbs Hole Golf Course. If antiquing is your thing, you’ll find Tappahannock has several shops you’ll want to visit. And Essex Movie Theatre might be of interest on that occasional rainy day.
Beyond the town you’ll find yourself surrounded by an area rich in our country's history. The area offers, great restaurants, wineries, state parks, and historical sites—including Stratford Hall Plantation (home of Robert E. Lee) and George Washington's Birthplace—all within a short driving distance.
Located just an hour north of Richmond/Williamsburg VA, and an hour and a half south of the Washington, DC beltway, Tidewater Manor is great for family vacations, family/friend reunions, and more.
