Tucked away in the northern neck of Virginia is the quaint hamlet of Morattico which feels like a step back in time. Located along the Rappahannock river in Lancaster county it sits across Morattico creek from bell isle state park. It is rich with history. The name comes from an anglicized version of the native American tribe "moraughticund”. George Washington referred to the area as “the garden of Virginia.”
Morattico was once a thriving oyster and crabbing waterfront community. The Morattico museum, located beside this home, was once the old general store and now shows the love and pride of the citizens and days gone by. Each room is adorned by local history exhibits showing the past centuries of the village and providing vacationers a treasure hunt during their stay. Visit their website to see all the activities from oyster fests to live music and antique car shows.
This charming home is almost completely surrounded by water views. It delights in beautiful sunrises over the water while sipping your morning beverage. Listen to the sounds of the birds and water. You won’t believe it is a river because it experiences tide changes and salt water wildlife.
This two level home has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths with overhead fans. The first level offers the privacy of 2 separated bedrooms each with views of the water. One room has a double bed and the other is set up with bunk beds and has a full size mattress on the bottom which allows total accommodations for 3 people in the room. There is also a large full bathroom on the lower level.
The upper level is designed with an open concept living space and boasts of a large kitchen with island and bar and separate dining room. Access to a full size washer and dryer for washing all those towels after water sports! The family room has comfortable leather sofa that opens to sleep 2 additional people, perfect for those nights of family time. The master bedroom has a queen bed and is surrounded by a deck to encourage those romantic nights with a glass of wine under the stars and moonlight! There are 2 additional decks; one on the front where you can watch the sunrise and spend hours reading and watching the water and birds. The back deck provides shade for the hot times of the day. The yard is fenced in around the back. There is a boat dock that can be used for fishing, swimming or just sitting. A small sandy beach allows for shell sea glass collecting.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We both have lived in the Virginia for over 30 years and have raised our children there. We were very active in the community and with our children's school and extra curricular activities. We work hard and play hard and our goal is to enjoy life to the fullest.
Why the Owner Chose Lancaster, VA, USA:
For us, it is all about lifestyle and having fun (notice my husbands Miley Cyrus impression)! Living in Northern Virginia can be very stressful so we wanted a home where we could sit and relax and breath... Every morning we see the sunrise over the water and realize it is going to be another fantastic day! This home gives us an opportunity to get away from the craziness and enjoy each other and our family and revitalize.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This little village of Morattico reminds me of a Norman Rockwell painting. We fell in love with it the moment we saw it. It has so much charm and history, from the museum that was once the general store and is located next to our home to the quaint post office and piers. The home has 270 degree water views. The village is just part of the attraction. The people are warm and friendly. Always a smile and neighborly greeting.
