About Harriet Barr

Sadly our owner, Dr. Sarah Forbes passed away in 2011.

Dr. Forbes was a compassionate physician, who was dedicated to her patients becoming Norfolk General's first female resident, and eventually chief resident of OB/GYN. In 1958, she became the first female physician to open a private OB/GYN practice in Newport News, in which she successfully and lovingly practiced.

Dr. Forbes was the first woman to be selected to the board and the first female president of the Boys and Girls Club of the Peninsula, where she was honored as a member of the "Wall of Fame" - the first and only woman to be so honored in the club's 65 year history.

Among her many awards were the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities' Humanitarian Award in 2007 and the Medallion Award, the highest recognition The Boys and Girls Club of America presents to volunteers.

She served as president of the Virginia Peninsula Academy of Medicine, the Newport News Chapter of the American Cancer Society, the Newport News Medical Society, and the Peninsula Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Her concern for her patients, affection for animals, and love for community lead her to support many organizations. Cancer Society, the Newport News Medical Society, and the Peninsula Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Her generosity benefited many organizations, including The Family Planning Council, First Baptist Church of Newport News, The Peninsula SPCA, the Mariners' Museum, Riverside Hospital, and Christopher Newport University.

All of our vacation homes are owned by Dr. Forbes' Estate which continues her legacy by using our profits to make regular donations to the charities she loved.

We take care of the houses like she would have wanted.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home is very easy to find. Close to food lion and outlet shops. Close proximity to beach ( walked with no problem took like 2 mins at a slow pace). The house has a parking for 5 cars and outside shower. on bottom floor of home there is a hot tub and washer and dryer. then up stairs on main floor there is a nice kitchen/living room combo with very comfy couch. There is also a queen bedroom with set of twin bunks which my kids liked. We loved the layout of this home and the deck was incredible with breezes blowing in off ocean.

A great weekend retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We took our middle school students to OBX this past weekend and stayed in Sea Biscuit. The cottage was great, everything they promoted it to be. Our students loved the space, especially the game room and theater room. The air hockey table was going everytime we were in the house. Beach access is right across the streat and very easy to get to. The view is amazing, especially at night. We enjoyed the space to spread out with 2 living room areas. The upstairs one being the largest which worked great as an area for us to all gather for our bible study sessions. One huge benefit was the elevator, it made moving our coolers, food totes and luggage much easier, plus we had one of our students on crutches from a softball injury so it made going up and down extremely easy for her. The customer service through the entire rental process was exceptional. We will happily stay here again next year.

Awesome Beach House!!!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters, their daughters and our husbands came down for a long Thanksgiving OBX vacation. We have never been down to the Outer Banks during this time of year and just wanted to try it. We typically come down in the summer each year. We absolutely loved the house, Sea Biscuit! The furniture and decorations through out the house were very welcoming and a comfortable atmosphere. Although there were only eight of us, the house has so much space and the floor plan is wonderful. We loved that the top and lowest floors both had wonderful kitchens and a nice private feel. The decks were spacious with really nice furniture on them as well. The views from the decks were very lovely and you could get a nice view of the ocean and hear the waves crashing at night. We enjoyed sitting in the theater room watching movies. The chairs were so comfy and relaxing. All in all, we had a wonderful time during our Thanksgiving stay and loved staying in the house. I would highly recommend this house for OBX vacationers!!!

A great family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

There were twenty two members of our family, who thoroughly enjoyed our visit to South Nags Head. Sea Biscuit cottage served us well. The pool was a great asset, and sitting on the decks enjoying the ocean breezes and beautiful sunrise was so enjoyable..walks on the pier and the beach waiting for the Dolphins to go by another favorite pastime. No problem finding your favorite seafood. All in all it was a memorable week not soon forgotten. Thank you!a

Perfect for big family

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited and loved every moment of it. The pool table was a huge hit as well as the nice pool. The cottage is large enough for of us to have our own bedroom. I would recommend it to anyone. It's just a short walk to the beach as well with a private beach access and the ocean front was awesome. Not very crowded near the private exit. The elevator was a tremendous help with the coolers and groceries.
