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.

What makes this house unique

Open, airy and comfortable. Saltwater pool - Open Memorial weekend - Labor Day

Great location with lots of amenities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was very nice. The house met our needs very well. It had plenty of sitting room for all that stayed. Liked the layout of the house with the master bed off of the kitchen. The decks were very enjoyable to set on and watch the sun rise and set. Also the closeness to the businesses and restaurants was nice as well as being just a few minutes from the beach. We are looking forward to spending another week here next year.

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was very clean and accommodating. I found it to be very centrally located to the pier for fishing, Tanger mall outlet, and many excellent food choices. Over all our experience was great. The management was pleasant and made our check in/out easy as can be.
