Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

Why Grimstead, Gwynn, VA, USA:
The Barking Dog Cottage was built in 2008. We were looking for a get away to relax and grow great family memories. Just crossing over the bridge to the island drops our stress level! We enjoy the tidal water and wildlife. As avid kayakers we visit the sand bar reef on the east side of the island and follow the activities of 'Stick Legs', the great blue heron who frequently hunts nearby. We hope you, too, can enjoy this getaway!
