Property description

What a great place for a fishing/boating retreat or just to "get away from the city". This is a warm waterfront cottage on the deep waters of the Coan River. 3 bedrooms and 1.5 bath. We have recently added WiFi as it is now available in our area. Located in Lottsburg, VA it is only a few miles to shops and restaurants in Callao, Heathsville, Reedville and Kilmarnock and just minutes by water to the Potomac River and only 9 miles to the open waters of the Chesapeake Bay. Bring your boat and keep it on the 10,000 lb boat lift at your own private dock where you can swim or catch fish and crabs. Watch nesting Bald Eagles and Osprey, spot dolphins playing in the river. Two Kayaks are provided for you to explore the beautiful wildlife and shores of the river. Just a short distant to the Tangier Island Ferry that leaves and returns daily to the historic and unique island from another time.

Just 2 hours from DC area and 1.5 hours from Richmond, Va, this is the perfect spot to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and to spend time in the beautiful and fruitful waters of the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay.

Lottsburg is located in Northumberland County just West of the County seat, Heathsville. The area was occupied at the time of English settlement by the Algonquian-speaking historic tribes of the Wicocomico and Chickacoan. The county was created by the Virginia General Assembly in 1648 during a period of rapid population growth and geographic expansion. Settlement began in this area of the Northern Neck around 1635. Originally known as the Indian district Chickacoan, the area was first referred to as Northumberland in the colonial records in 1644. The following year, John Mottrom served as the first burgess for the territory in the House of Burgesses, which met at the capital of the Virginia Colony at Jamestown.

The colonial court ordered the two tribes to merge and by 1655, assigned them a reservation of 4,400 acres (18 km2) near Dividing Creek, south of the Great Wicomico River.[3] By the early 1700s, the Wicocomico tribe was greatly reduced, and English colonists took control of their lands. They were believed to be extinct as a tribe as, landless, they disappeared from the historical record. Descendants of the last weroance are working to regain recognition as a tribe, the Wicocomico Indian Nation.[4]

The size of the county was drastically reduced in 1651 and 1653 when the colonial government organized Lancaster and Westmoreland counties from it.

Of the 172 counties that have ever existed in Virginia's history, Northumberland ended up being an "ancestor" to 116 of these –– more than the current 95 counties (several were lost to other states, such as West Virginia).

20 miles to the East, Reedville is a small village in eastern Northumberland County on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. Reedville is home to the Atlantic menhaden fishing industry. It is named for Captain Elijah W. Reed (1827-1888), who is credited with bringing the menhaden fishing industry, and the tremendous wealth that resulted from it, to Reedville –– and to Northumberland County in general.

Dozens of fish-processing factories, most recently Omega Protein Corporation (successor to Zapata Haynie, Reedville Oil and Guano Company and Haynie Products Company) and Standard Products Company, have dotted the Northumberland coastline near Reedville and adjacent fishing communities.

Today, Omega Protein remains the largest industrial organization in the area. Omega, with a fleet of large oceangoing fish-harvesting vessels, supported by a number of spotter aircraft, is a major industry in the area and on the Eastern seaboard. Menhaden, once caught, are cooked in large mass and processed for further use in various applications, including as a protein additive for poultry feed.

Located at the eastern terminus of U.S. Route 360, Reedville is a popular place to begin fishing charters and trips to Tangier Island in the Bay. Reedville is also a tourist destination itself, steeped in the history of the menhaden fishing industry. The Millionaire's Row of Victorian Era mansions and several watercraft of the Fishermen's Museum are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
