About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

NOW TAKING RESERVATIONS FOR SUMMER 2017 -

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.

The 4000 square foot house features an open floor plan and endless Bay views from every room. The huge great room features an antique wood-burning fireplace, 55' LCD Smart HDTV, large sectional sofa, and comfortable leather chairs. It is open to a kitchen with new stainless steel appliances and 4-person breakfast bar, and to a large dining room with table for 10. The huge front porch, giant all season sun/game room, or fully-screened rear porch are all perfect spots for breakfast with the family or to read a good book.

A large private studio apartment above the detached garage is included in the rental. It features a queen bed, twin sleep sofa, full bath, central air conditioning and heat, SAT TV/VCR/DVD, small kitchen and elevated deck with great Bay views. The apartment comfortably accommodates 2 adults or a small family and is perfect for extra relatives or friends.

In the main house, the upstairs king bedroom features a large in-suite full bathroom with double sinks. The upstairs queen bedroom includes an attached annex room with a full-size baby crib and shares 1 full and 1 half bath with the 'kids bedroom' featuring a pair of twin-over-double bunk beds. The queen bedroom on the first floor has a full bath directly across the hall.
The house also features a 12 x 10 private double outdoor shower with hot water.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

Why the Owner Chose Reedville, VA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
