About Harriet Barr
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.

Great place on the beach!
The home was clean and orderly. You can tell there have been upgrades done. We love the back porch overlooking the pool. The staff were kind and accessible even though we didn’t need them. Thank you for making our trip fantastic!
Thank you so much for staying with us! Please let me know when you would like to come back.
Not worth the price.
Very clean. Kitchen almost impossible to work in. Outdoor furniture should really be replaced. Did not feel we got our money’s worth.
Thanks for your review.
I'm not sure what you are referring to when you say you could not work in the kitchen. I would have been happy to help you with anything you needed if you had called. We have also replaced the outdoor furniture, as well as purchased new living room furniture.
Maybe try one of our other houses next time?
Great getaway location for a family or group of friends
We had everything we needed at the cottage when we arrived. It is a well laid out floor plan and I loved the area that was fenced in for our dogs to run a little off the leash. The pool was beautiful but closed due to our timing. I would go again. Harriet and all the associates in the office were absolutely great to work with and made our stay with them very easy. I opted for the package where they provide the linen and was very happy with the quality and cleanliness of the cottage.
I only gave it 4 stars because it said there was a private beach access from the cottage which I misinterpreted. I didn't realize we were across the street from the beach and the beach access is "Private" for all of the rentals together by Rentals on the beach. It did not deter our fun and it was very easy to get to the beach access. I felt a little misled but we all still had a great time and like I said, I would rent this location again.
Thanks for your review.
I will try to re-word the description so that it is more clear.
Take a look at our pictures online. We have purchased new living room and bedroom furniture, have more comfortable and updated outdoor furniture on decks and completely repainted. Check us out.
