About Harriet Barr

I am the Property Manager for Sarah E. Forbes MD, Trust.

Our Founder, Dr. Sarah Forbes passed away in 2011. She was a compassionate physician, dedicated to her patients becoming Norfolk General’s first female chief resident of OB/GYN.

In 1958, she became the first female physician to open a private OB/GYN practice in Newport News, VA.

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.

Sarah was often honored for her contributions to the organizations she served, and the community she loved.

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

She served as president of several community organizations that include 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 generosity benefited many organizations, including the Cancer Society, the Newport News Medical Society, the Peninsula Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Family Planning Council, First Baptist Church of Newport News, the Peninsula SPCA, Mariners’ Museum, Riverside Hospital, and Christopher Newport University.

We are continuing Dr. Forbes’ Legacy

All of our vacation homes are owned by Sarah E. Forbes MD, Trust 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.

Prefect Location, nice house for family with kids. Love the two kitchens. Elevator was a bonus.

  • 3 of 5

The location is prefect. For the money they charged the place deserved a deep cleaning. VERY DIRTY. The only problem we had was the cleanliness of the place.

This was our four year family reunion. It was great fun and for the most part everyone was happy.

  • 4 of 5

I would suggest that there be a way to wash sand off of feet other than the outside shower. With four adults and 11 children, it wasn't possible for everyone to shower off in the outside shower. Consequently, the floors got pretty sandy. We swept the best we could, but an outside spigot for feet would be nice. Also, more silverware in the upstairs kitchen. This is where we all converged for meals and had to go downstairs to get more. The children had a wonderful time and LOVED the pool. Overall, a good time.

Rustic but spacious

  • 3 of 5

This house is definitely spacious but in need of a deep clean and updating. It seems like this house has not been given the care it deserves because it is a very lovely place to stay. Kitchens and all Bathrooms need to be upgraded and the whole house needed some scrubbing. The locks on the exterior doors did not all work as they should have.

Our family did enjoy the common spaces that provided lots room for visiting and game playing. But, many of the things we were looking forward to using on rainy days were not working. The air hockey table did not really work and the DVD player in the theatre room ruined movie night. 3 of the decks had huge and active yellow jacket nests.

Owner's Response: Dear Billie, I really wish that you had notified us of your concerns when you were here. We have our own Maintenance man and he would have taken care of all your needs. As it turns out, the child of a previous guest had put toys in the air hockey machine. We found no problems with the DVD players and I would have been happy to send someone over to instruct you on how to operate it. We have the Operator's manual available too. We don't have Yellow Jackets here. You most likely saw Dirt Dobbers, which are very common. We keep spray on hand for controlling them. Again, I am sorry that you experienced problems. Please contact your rental manager immediately next time. If you don't tell us, we can't help.

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!!!
