Perfect spot in Urbanna

  • 5 of 5

Mike made everything very easy with brief, but detailed instructions. The house was very clean, had everything you need, the beds were very comfortable, and the rooms were very spacious (including the bathrooms). If you have any questions or concerns, Mike is very quick at responding to his messages. Overall great stay.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

Very sweet property. Just what we needed in a cute quiet small town. A chance for a very busy of 4 to get away from the hustle. The owners thought of so many details. Our stay was effortless. And the local Grocery (IGA) was well stocked and super friendly.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place to stay. Very clean and quiet! We had a couple small things that needed done, lights changed out and the tub wasn't draining well. We let the owner know and things were fixed within a few hours. We were highly satisfied and will definitely stay again when we visit family.

Perfect spot in Urbanna

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place in Urbanna for 2 months and we're so glad we found the Blue Tango. It was absolutely perfect for our needs. Even though we weren't on vacation, it felt like it because the house and town are so relaxing and beautiful. The upstairs deck, with a view of the Rappahannock, quickly became our favorite spot for morning coffee or evening gatherings. There are 2 parks close to the house, perfect for dog walking and the house has 2 bikes for tooling around town.

Urbanna has really good restaurants, art shops, clothing boutique, live music, and friendly neighbors. Perfect spot for a getaway! Looking forward to going back for an actual vacation!
