Time has gotten away from us since our visit to this beautiful home, just as time flew by too quickly during our Christmas stay at the James River Plantation. Although our visit seems long ago, our memories are vividly happy ones. From the moment we unlocked the first of two gates that protect this beautiful and secluded home, we knew we were in for a special and relaxing vacation.
When the main house came into view, we felt as though we had gone back in time to a country estate. The house’s wonderfully furnished interior was just as impressive, with its welcoming foyer; comfortable dining room, den, and bedrooms; and large modernly equipped kitchen, pantry, and laundry room. The view overlooking the water was lovely from sunrise to sunset whether we were having coffee on the front lawn or dinner in the large, glassed-enclosed porch. Yes, we had sunrise coffee in the front yard in December! The pool house (and its pool) is quite large and includes two bathrooms with showers, a table and chairs, and an outdoor deck with lounge chairs and a view of the main house and water. The heated pool was a perfect temperature.
The town of Urbanna is quaint, and everyone we met there was very friendly and hospitable. Many thanks to Linda for promptly responding to pre-rental questions and helping to make our stay so enjoyable. It was a perfect Christmas getaway. We hope to return to the James River Plantation, perhaps explore its beauty in another season.
