This magnificent beach house is nestled among towering pine trees on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay at its widest point (30 miles across) and features a private 200-foot long sand beach that is perfect for swimming.
Experience the beautiful sunrises over the Bay. Relax on the waterfront deck or the large flagstone patio and watch the sailboats and ships pass many miles offshore. Explore the coastline on two double sea kayaks included with the house rental.
The Chesapeake Bay is well-known as a bird lovers paradise. From the beach house you will see local osprey, great blue heron, bald eagles and pelican diving and catching fish. You may see a thousand Canadian geese arriving together to spend the night near shore. Cardinals, blue birds and other song birds also abound among the magnolias, azaleas, crepe myrtles, dogwoods, and towering pine trees.
Reedville is a small town of beautifully restored turn-of-the-century Victorian homes and great seafood restaurants. Local activity options abound. Charter a fishing or tour boat from a local marina. Take the daily ferry to Tangier or Smith Island, two picture perfect villages on islands in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. Or bring your own boat and use the public boat ramp right down the road.
Explore the local farmers' markets or the Reedville Fisherman's Museum. Shop for art or antiques in nearby villages. Birdwatch at two Northern Neck nature preserves, golf at any of six local courses, or tour several nearby wineries. Explore the region's many historic attractions including the childhood homes of George Washington and Robert E. Lee.

Why Tom Lang chose Reedville
We had never been to the 'Northern Neck' of Virginia when we drove the 2.5 hours from Northern Virginia in late 2004 to look for a second home where our children, relatives, and friends could slow down and relax with us. We wanted a place on the water where we could swim, boat, kayak and play in the sand. We wanted a place without traffic, fences, and fast food restaurants. We wanted a place where our dogs could play in the woods, our kids could climb trees, and we could all spend quality family time together. We found exactly what we were looking for in this home.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy the sunrises over the Bay, relaxing on the hammock, lounging on the beach, and playing badminton, bocce and volleyball. We enjoy crab cake dinners and ice cream at the local ice-cream parlor. We enjoy biking and walking the country roads. We enjoy the local wineries, farmers markets and museums. We enjoy kayaking, fishing. paddleboarding and boating on the Bay.

We loved this home!
Our family had such a lovely time at this beautiful and fun filled home. There was plenty to do on the rainy days and the sunny days were stunning with our own little private beach and beautiful water. Wonderful host who seems to have thought of everything for a family get away.
Property is beautiful, right on Chesapeake Bay! Great location to enjoy Reedville and local attractions. House was clean and in good order. Well equipped kitchen. Bathrooms and bedrooms were nice; beds are comfortable. I would definitely rent this property again.
Lovely house, attractive location!
The house is spacious and accommodating, with all the amenities we would want. The waterfront location is attractive and tranquil. We have seen great wildlife from the back porch including bald eagles, osprey and more. Sunrises over the bay, as well as moon rise in the evening, can be an added plus. The owner is responsive and communication is excellent.
We will plan to visit again!
Just gets better every year!
This beautiful house has hosted a group of girlfriends and their kids over the past 8 years, so it really feels like home to us. It is spacious for everyone to have their space and yet the common areas are perfect for long conversations and catching up over great meals and wine. The bay offers easy access to swimming and water play and the sleepy town of Fleeton offers great biking and runs. Fresh seafood right down the road is a must. The owners have updated the house over the years and maintained it well, so it feels fresh every time we visit. We’ll continue to come back year over year as long as the Langs will let us!
The property was amazing inside as well as out!
We found the home to be beautiful, spotless, and well maintained.
Basic supplies - water, paper products, propane - in ample supply.
When we encountered a small problem with entry code, Mr. Lang responded immediately.
The grounds are, in my opinion, the most amazing part of this rental property! Large, beautifully maintained, an area of sandy beach for swimming and sand castle construction!
I personally enjoyed sitting by waters edge in the morning watching the sunrise.
The little ones especially enjoyed the sandy beach and swing/ slide set.
The first floor bedroom was perfect for our handicapped family member.
We did charter a nearby fishing boat one day of our stay, and hauled in an impressive catch providing that evenings meal!
A few trips into the quaint fishing town of Reedville - especially for an ice cream at Chitterchats - was enjoyed by both young and old! But, for the most part, the family enjoyed our time together in the quiet beauty of the immediate surroundings.
A small "catastrophe" occurred on our final day (a lost car key), and Mr. Lang did his best to be accommodating to our predicament.
I would absolutely recommend this property, especially if you need peace and beauty rather than hectic for your vacation!
Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit, and hope to have you back again soon!
A piece of heaven. We miss it already!
WE HAD A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE FOR TWO WEEKS. UNBEATABLE LOCATION WITH AN EVER CHANGING CANVAS ALL DAY. GOOD WATER ACCESS. NEED SOME MUSCLE TO USE THE KAYAKS , BUT A MINOR CRITIQUE. IT IS EXPENSIVE , BUT WE FELT WELL WORTH THE MONEY. VERY WELL EQUIPPED AND FURNISHED. WE WERE ONLY 5 , BUT A LARGE FAMILY RE-UNION COULD BE ACCOMODTED. (14+.) Thanks Tom and Laura.

Glad you enjoyed your stay!
