  • A beautifully restored immaculately kept historic property. Wonderful destination for a family.

    "This house is definitely a labour of love to preserve a piece of American history. For a home built in 1763 it is very comfortable, has very modern appliances, Wi-fi, AC etc. Visiting some old properties prior, the wonderful quality of this home is it doesn't have an old smell. High end linens and comfortable pillows made it for a restful sleep. Judith provided a very helpful binder with information about the property, passwords and the code to the slave house, as well as info about the area. This place is very educational. The owner collected period furniture and accessories that are arranged alongside books and literature about the history of Virginia, and Virginia period furniture. I highly recommend to devote at least one evening , dress up, and have a candlelight dinner in the formal dining room. Look inside the cabinet for antique utensils. We felt that we took a trip in a time machine. Every morning and evening my husband and I had coffee and drinks in the library. It has a very fun CD music collection. This room is very conducive to creativity. I liked the fact the house doesn't have a TV. We travel with 4 kids ages 9 to 18. We played cards, had long dinners, watched the fireflies. Fireflies are amazing in Virginia! One day I would love to come back and write a book in this house."

  • Beautiful view, cozy cottage, relaxing area

    "Amazing views on the deck and private dock make for relaxing times on the water. The cottage is cozy and perfect for a getaway. Great food and activities right around the corner with Irvington and Urbanna a quick 30 minute drive away. Would stay again!"

  • Perfect!

    "My best friend and I spent a long weekend at the Piankatank cottage and couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting. The pictures do not do it justice. We only had three days and had made plans to explore but were so in love with the setting that, with the exception of a side trip to a beautiful winery and a movie under the stars in Urbanna, we decided to just stay and relax. The view was amazing and due to the cooler weather we were able to open the doors and windows to the porch so we could hear the river sounds and smell the marsh. We had the entire place to ourselves.There are so many things to see and do and nothing is very far away at all (it only looks like it on a a map). The Deltaville Market has just about everything you need and it's practically around the corner. J&W Seafood has wonderful fish and crabmeat. The kitchenette is small but we found it easy to prepare meals in. Everything is high end and well-cared for. The cottage was very clean. I could go on and on. We can't wait to go back and we definitely hope we can stay longer!"

  • Very comfortable and relaxed place

    "We had a great time for our Labor Day weekend with another family at this is one of the best properties we have visited. Guesthouse is separated from main house and newly finished. It is very bright and clean with full kitchen and a small deck which exactly as described and in the pictures. Place is at waterfront with private pier and beautiful view. It is also close to a small town with shopping and restaurants (8-10 mins). You have both privacy and convenience. We were told that there is public beach near-by, but we did not have time to go. The thing we enjoyed most was their pier. We caught dozens of crabs, some small fish and one big sting ray! Our lovely hosts Norma and Carl are very nice and make us feel being home. Our only wish is that this property could be closer to where we live. We will be back and definitely will recommend friends"
