Reedville House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 4 full baths, 1 half bath, Sleeps 14

Your family has been to Ocean City, Rehobeth, the Outer Banks or Virginia Beach -- but you found the beaches crowded, the traffic horrible and the restaurants packed. So you are looking for something different this year for your vacation. Something more relaxing, more private, less frantic. You have found what you were looking for. A vacation on the 30-mile wide Chesapeake Bay.

Enjoy your OWN PRIVATE 200-foot long soft sand beach -- perfect for swimming. Enjoy beautiful sunrises. Explore the area on two double sea kayaks. Relax on chaise lounges on the waterfront deck. Dine outside on the large flagstone patio. Play badminton, bocce, frisbee, or volleyball on the wide and shaded lawn overlooking the Bay. Cycle the country farm roads on 3 adult and 3 child bicycles. Marvel at dolphins, osprey, bald eagles, heron and pelicans.

The 4300 square foot house features a wide open floor plan, new appliances, baths and furnishings, and stunning and endless Bay views from every room. Amenities include: double hot/cold outdoor shower, foosball and ping pong tables, 55', 42' and 47'-inch flat panel HDTVs, high speed wireless internet and free long distance telephone. Charming carriage house apartment (always included in the rental) features queen bed, twin sleep sofa, full luxury bath and kitchen, central a/c, and private waterview deck..

Main Living Area Accommodations: The great room includes a huge wood-burning fireplace with unlimited firewood provided, comfortable leather chairs, a large sectional sofa seating 6, and a 55-inch LED TV with DVD/VCR. The great room is open to the both the kitchen and the dining room. Connected to the main living area is a fully screened sun porch overlooking the Bay as well as a second huge (34' x 16') vaulted sun room overlooking the Bay with a sectional sofa, 47-inch flat screen LCD satellite TV with DVD/VCR, foosball and ping pong tables, overhead skylights, ceiling fans, books, magazines, videos, and games.

Bird Watching : Bring your binoculars and camera! The Chesapeake Bay is well-known as a bird lovers paradise. From the beach house you can watch several local osprey, great blue heron, bald eagles and pelicans diving and catching fish as well as pods of dolphin passing by. Ospreys have established a nest within 100 feet of the property and a heron comes almost every morning to look for fish along the shoreline. In the winter months you can listen to the roar of a thousand Canadian geese arriving together to spend the night near shore. Cardinals, blue birds and other songbirds also abound among the bayberry trees, magnolias, huge azaleas, crepe myrtles, dogwoods, and towering lob lolly pines on the home's 1.5 acres of property. Patios and porches overflow with brilliant geraniums and hibiscus in summer months.

We can help you to arrange additional bike, kayak, windsurfer and paddleboard rentals, charter fishing/sailing/boating, sailing lessons, in-home catering, local chefs, marina services, winery tours, massage therapy, horseback riding, cycling tours, rowing (sculling) lessons, golf itineraries.

Why Tom Lang chose Reedville

We were looking for a getaway home to spend time with family and friends. We found an older beachhouse on a beautiful bayfront piece of property in a rural location only 2.5 hours from our primary residence. Some imagination and renovations brought the house back to life as a great gathering spot for family and friends.

What makes this house unique

A typical summer week at the beach house is spent boating, fishing, sailing, roasting marshmallows at the fire pit, swimming, kayaking, windsurfing, playing volleyball and bocce, birdwatching, crabbing --all without leaving the property! Throw in some golf, visits to nearby wineries, museums, and farmers markets, and you have a perfect recipe for a great vacation!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous time playing foosball, in fact we held a foosball championship! Our dog, Josie could not stay away from the beach. Our favorite room was the game room but our favorite thing was watching the sun rise and set over the bBay. We got great pictures of it. We love the house and hope to come again soon!

Fabulous winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

I was in awe at how the pictures were exactly like the property. 9 women and I had planned a weekend getaway for my 40th birthday. The house was emmaulate and the setting breathtaking. I enjoyed sun rises, sea kayaking (yes in the winter), fires and just sitting on the wonderful deck enjoying the amazing views. The beachfront is such a nice feature...easy entrance to the water, and I know wonderful for small children. This property is a away from it all.....very secluded and away from all the chaos some vacation spots offer. Enjoy local small towns and fare. The house was spacious...we never felt crowded and the kitchen....was large. I can imagine that is would be a wonderful summer vacation as well and plan to take my family this summer. Enjoy this wonderful home and the rest and relaxation a vacation can truely be!!!!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful summer family vacation here. Everything the owner describes is true to form. The house was well-appointed, clean and in good working order. We really enjoyed swimming and playing on the beach. They provide many toys for young children to enjoy outside. We are already planning our return trip. Thank you very much to the owners for sharing their beautiful home.

Beautiful Property with Great View

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home with four other couples, and we all thought it was just perfect. It is very spacious with several quiet places to get away and read, along with two large family room areas for us to be together.

The view of the Chesapeake Bay is spectacular, and we sat for a little while each day in the Adirondack chairs overlooking the bay. All of the appliances were nice, and the kitchen is well stocked.

My husband and I actually stayed in the carriage house apartment above the garage which ended up to be very nice too. It also has a refrigerator and sink in it along with dishes should you need them.

The owners are VERY responsive and were always available if we had a question about anything. They were also easy to work with in booking the property, and always got back to me in a very timely way.

Reedville is a nice quaint town, and there are also some other small towns nearby with gift shops and things to see. Our favorite part, however, was sitting by the water and enjoying the view with good friends.

Very comfortable with great yard for kids

  • 5 of 5

Tom really came to our aid this labor day as our first VRBO rental (not through Tom of course) had a major septic issue. We contacted Tom and he had the house ready for us in a few hours. We were unfortunately there after labor day so the town had little going on. We did have some trouble finding available restaurants during the week but this is not a problem if you love to cook or are there in the summer. The house is very comfortable with a play area and a living room area that accommodated us (two couples and a 2 year old). The 2 year old loved the playset outside and the grass was very nice. I enjoyed having the house set back a bit from the beach. The beach is tiny so be prepared for that as well as the occasional odor which I believe comes from a nearby fish or crab plant. This is a well maintained home with privacy and a great host. We would surely go back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review. We were happy we could accomodate your last-minute request and glad you all enjoyed the privacy, large lawn, the kids playset, and the private beach. The beach varies somewhat in size and shape from week to week depending on the wind, tide and overall water level in the Bay. The pictures on our listing represent the usual beach size. You visited Mon-Thurs and unfortunately most local restaurants are closed Mon/Tues. Reedville is one of the last major commercial fishing towns and the scent of the fishing operation can sometimes be detected from some areas of town but, fortunately that it is not an issue at our property location. We look forward to having you back again soon!

Wonderful Rental

  • 5 of 5

A perfect rental for multiple families, with great open spaces, very clean, and everything you'd need. The piece of land is beautiful and the views are perfect. We went with four couples with small kids and it was great. Highly recommend it.

Great retreat for a large group of friends

  • 5 of 5

Our November 11 - 13, 2011 weekend getaway spent in this gorgeous home was nothing short of perfect. The house was larger than expected (pictures don't do it justice)...the many bedrooms and baths were the perfect size...and we had our own private beach to excersise the kids + dog.

If you're looking for a place to host a family reunion or large group of friends, look no further. We look forward to returning very soon.
