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.
Why Harriet Barr chose Nags Head
This property is too cute to pass up. Did you know? When Peppers was first built, Dr. Forbes rented it to a Catholic Cardinal. He liked it so much that before he left, he blessed the cottage. It has been our most popular couples cottage ever since!
What makes this Cottage unique
Enjoy the rocking chairs on the front porch and the side enclosed deck for eating outside or just enjoying the fresh air. The enclosed deck is great for keeping dogs and small children safe.

Rentals on the Ocean
Wonderful vintage charm!
Wouldn’t change a thing. Cute little cottage had everything we needed.
This is a very nice property and is in a good location.
Good location! Small, clean and tidy cottage.
Cottage was clean and comfortable. Very nice for 2 people. Easy access to the beach. The only thing that may be an issue for some is the configuration of the bathroom. Very tight around the toilet. Shower head is very low. We enjoyed our stay, location is excellent. Nice area for walking and biking.
