Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: Currently live in Virginia and wanted to spend summers at our rental. We are having to spend more time at our jobs and are not able to be at our cottage as much as we had hoped. Just decided to rent it out for a while until we have more time to stay ourselves. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Why Grimstead, Gwynn, VA, USA:
We fell in love with this property when we sat on the sofa in the living room and saw the endless views of the spectacular Chesapeake Bay. So peaceful and relaxing.
