About the Property

Waterfront vacation home with 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom vacation h

Located in the quaint riverside village of Morattico VA, this charming vacation home provides a relaxing getaway from city and urban living. The home is situated on an acre of land and provides waterfront access to the Lancaster Creek with views of the Rappahannock River. There are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms (one with tub and one with shower), two screened porches (front and back) and a spacious living room with working fireplace. Five ceiling fans throughout the house and in each bedroom along with central A/C keep the home comfortable all summer long. A dock on the property with built-in seating provides water access for canoes/kayaks, crabbing/fishing, entertaining, and watching incredible sunsets over the water. Two kayaks with paddles and life jackets are available at the house. (Water at the end of the dock is about 1 foot deep during very low tides.)

The house has a total of two beds (king and queen). A twin-size portable mattress is also provided. The third bedroom contains a sectional sofa that sleeps two adults comfortably and the living room sofa will sleep one adult comfortably. Please note that the sofas are not pull-out sleepers, but were selected based on being comfortable for sleeping (ie, seat cushions lay flat and the back cushions can be removed to make up twin-sized bed sleeping arrangements.

Morattico is a quiet, relaxing place with it’s own tiny waterfront post office, white frame church and a Waterfront Museum. The Museum is located just a few doors down and provides a glimpse of history into the once vibrant oyster, fishing, and crabbing industry that sustained the town for many years. You’ll also learn about the history of the town and Northern Neck going back to 1608 when Captain John Smith met the Morauchtacund Indians. Gradually since the 1960’s the town has slowly transformed into a vacation and second-home destination.

The Northern Neck is home to nine wineries, known as the Chesapeake Wine Trail. They include Athena Vineyards, General’s Ridge Vineyard, Good Luck Cellars, The Dog & Oyster, Ingleside Vineyards, Oak Crest Vineyard & Winery, Vault Field Vineyards, Jacey Vineyards, and Belle Mount Vineyards.

Located adjacent to the town of Morattico is Belle Isle State Park, with the entrance 5 miles from the house. The park features a beach, picnic facilities, public boat landing, canoes, motor boat rentals, free concerts, and nature trails.

Many interesting historical attractions are nearby, including George Washington’s birthplace located on Pope’s Creek off the Potomac River. Some other noteworthy stops include Stratford Hall (Robert E. Lee’s restored plantation home), Christ Church (built in 1735), Mary Ball Washington Museum and Library, Reedville Fishermen’s Museum, and Menokin (home of Declaration of Independence signer Francis Lightfoot Lee).
Some favorite restaurants with waterview dining include Merroir in Topping (Rappahannock Oyster Company), The Tiki Bar at Windmill Point, Horn Harbor in Burgess and The Crazy Crab in Reedville. Two restaurants are within 10 minutes of the house: The Oaks and Corner Bar & Grill. Other great places to check out are The Car Wash Cafe, Northern Neck Burger Co., Trick Dog Cafe, Rappahannock Grill, Relish, and Lancaster Tavern.

Golfers can head to the par-71 at King Carter Golf Club or the par-72 course at Golden Eagle. Both offer challenges to players of all levels, with holes set amidst a beautiful natural backdrop. The 19th hole at both courses offers dining opportunities.

Cell phone coverage: Verizon and AT&T have towers throughout the Northern Neck peninsula. Sprint and Virgin do not have towers, but their signals are adequate at the house since towers from across the river reach Morattico. 2G coverage is available from T-Mobile.

Morattico is located 70 miles from Richmond, 115 miles from DC, 95 miles from Norfolk, and 145 miles from Baltimore. The closest major airports are in Richmond (72 miles) and DC’s Reagan National (108 miles).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I grew up in Richmond, VA and spent many hours each summer on the James river, Chesapeake Bay and intercostal waters of Eastern Shore Virginia where my dad grew up. Naturally I just love being on the river in the Northern Neck of VA and enjoy all the great things about this part of the state--fresh produce and seafood, beautiful parks, wineries, historical landmarks, etc.
