Great place to calmly unwind. Close friends also have a home in Urbanna. Great access to many other travel locations, like DC, Richmond, Wiliamsburg/Yorktown/Jamestown & Va Beach

Nice, out-of-the-way place for a quiet weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I found The Blue Tango to be clean and quite comfortable in a new and modern above-garage apartment setting. The place is as pictured and as stated and I would happily stay there again! It was very convenient to have access to the washer and dryer as well!

Great place for a quick winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

Nice, quiet place to spend a few days away from it all. Perfect size for two people, but the downstairs bedroom/bath could have easily worked for another couple or a few kids. Everything as described. Didn't use the kitchen much, but nicely apportioned. Nice video system for a movie night. Quick response from the owner to a minor question. Lots more going on in Urbanna in the Spring/Summer months--but this was perfect for a 30th anniversary get-away.

Peaceful and restful!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a small-town on the Rivah (well, near-by), this property is very nice.

We were looking for a peaceful and restful Thanksgiving, and we got it.

Everything was great!

Thank you.

Great place for a small group

  • 4 of 5

The Blue Tango is a bonus find for me, as I love to fish the Rappahannock River and nearby Bay, but finding clean, reasonable accomodations in the area is really tough. The Tango fits the bill, and on top of that is located in a great spot for weekend relaxation within Urbana. It is well provisioned with kitchen essentials, the beds are comfortable, full laundry room and the garage provides storage room or a room for inclement weather indoor activity. The neighborhood is friendly, we talked with several locals. The owner Mike was very understanding and supportive of a special request I had and an unfortunate report of property damage. The only reasons I didn't give it 5 stars was no cable or satellite TV is available. My fishing buddy's Netflix worked fine for entertainment, but I had to miss a Captials game I really wanted to see. Bob
