About the Property
2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Waterfront Cottage
you'll feel like you are back at summer camp in this peaceful cottage with beautiful original pine walls and tall ceilings. Its cozy porch faces directly onto Rogers Creek, with views of the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay.
We call this cottage "The Little House" because it is the smaller guest house on the property-- the "Big House" is nearby across the yard. Just down the hill is our sandy beach.
Both the kitchen and bathroom were updated in 2014. The cottage has central air conditioning and heat plus ceiling fans in every room.
Lie in the hammock to watch both spectacular sunsets and sunrises. Great star gazing.
For your use find beach chairs, beach umbrella, noodles, inner tubes, coolers, fishing gear, sand toys, bikes, a fire-pit, adult kayak, one junior kayak, and a paddle board in the garage.
Sleeps 4 in two bedrooms, one with queen bed and one with twin beds. The bathroom has a shower, no bathtub.
Kitchen has electric stove, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and refrigerator with freezer. Wireless internet service, no TV. Painted floors, hooked rugs, quilts, and lots of charm throughout.

The cottage's zip code locates it in Heathsville, Va. but it is about 9 miles from Heathsville, on the Potomac River in Edwardsville, Va. It is a very rural, peaceful spot with big open water views (Potomac River is 10 miles wide here). Perfect spot for fishing, sunbathing, kayaking, boating, biking, and sightseeing in nearby small towns.
Year Purchased: 1981
About the owner: We are native Virginians and live in Alexandria, VA. The property includes 2 cottages, a garage, 1/3 acre, and a dock. It's our family's favorite place and we've been restoring and upgrading it for the last 35 years. I love painting furniture and floors and anyone can see I have been very busy with my projects!
Why the Owner Chose Heathsville, VA, USA:
Definitely its proximity to the water. Candy Point is practically surrounded by water... you can hear the waves at night. Visitors feel like they are on a boat because the house is up on a hill and you see water everywhere you look!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
In the spring you can watch ospreys ( just back from their winter journey to Argentina) building their nests. Bald eagles soar above the creek. We have bluebirds and hummingbirds too. It is a very quiet setting --at night you hear the waves and the frogs across the creek at Froggy Bottom. Plus the star gazing is amazing!
