BEAUTIFUL COLONIAL HOUSE AMIDST TRANQUIL GARDENS!

Gloucester Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

Experience springtime in Tidewater Virginia and enjoy the crocus, forsythia, daffodils, dogwoods and more blooming in our beautiful gardens at Lisburne! A time for inspiration and renewal. A time to marvel at the kaleidoscope of color that only Spring can bring. A freshness and a new beginning.

An overnight stay at the Blue Bell Cottage offers a chance to experience the beauties of Virginia's 'Golden Age' while enjoying the original colonial tavern like those in Colonial Williamsburg.

The cottage has been furnished with exquisite antiques while containing contemporary comforts. Its perfect proportions belie is spaciousness. With a large living room, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, and informal dining area, this is an inviting dwelling place.

The Cottage and the surrounding grounds have been immaculately maintained. Additionally, walking areas with extensive gardens featuring English boxwood, camellias, azaleas, and rhododendron are particularly glorious in the spring. The Cottages at Lisburne are in harmony with nature amidst beautiful gardens and tranquil pastures with our llama, Bojangles, and his dutiful followers, a dozen Dorset sheep.

Your visit is our pleasure!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Enjoyed our stay at the cottage - a highlight was talking to the owner and taking a tour of his wonderful garden. It was also fun to stay in a house similar to the ones seen in the Historic Triangle!

WE WOULD NOT STAY HERE AGAIN

  • 1 of 5
Re Blue Bell: *LISTED AMENITIES NOT THERE ON ARRIVAL: Wifi, Broadband, Telephone Service, DVD. We learned only by accident two days before arrival that Broadband and Wifi would not be there; the absence of Telephone Service and DVD was a surprise and we reported them. Telephone service was never activated; a DVD was dropped off later but too late for our purposes. *CONDITIONS ENCOUNTERED: No privacy curtains or shades in bathrooms and upstairs bedrooms; custom installed upstairs bathroom light was shot, very noisy hum, completely inadequate light; jetted tub did not work; upstairs air return filter caked with dust; no wastebaskets in upstairs bedrooms; miscellaneous lights did not work or bulbs burnt out or missing; mice poison left exposed on the floor near basement refrigerator; back door hardware stopped functioning so the convenience of using the door was lost; exceptionally noisy dishwasher; supply of plates, bowls, and saucers barely adequate for three people; kitchen sink spray hose did not work; dining table is approximately card table sized; kitchen refrigerator is cabinet sized with conventional refrigerator in basement; surprisingly noticeable noise from the road. *ODDS AND ENDS: Hosts were not on site when we made the requested one-hour-prior-to-ETA phone call, and the housekeeper who answered didn’t know we were due to arrive. With only a week’s stay and a planned schedule and no phone, there was no time to drive repeatedly to the hosts’ residence to report all the deficiencies (which appeared or occurred sequentially over time) and then wait around for maintenance personnel, so we made do and reported in writing upon departure and subsequently; host has stated that deficiencies will be corrected for future guests, but has not responded twice to the suggestion of a partial refund due to our not having received full value for money. *GENERAL IMPRESSION: Poor communication between hosts, housekeepers, and reservations/principal contact person; inadequate staff procedures for routinely inspecting, reporting, and correcting deficiencies; recommend any future guests check on corrective measures taken.

THE BLUE BELL COTTAGE MARCH 27-APRIL 1, 2010

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely house! My family enjoyed the cottage for 5 days. The cottage was even more beautiful than the pictures. Towels, linens and robes were 5 star quality. I highly recommend this cottage to anyone who would like to stay in a true colonial home full of antiques, beautiful paintings and pictures. If you are a cook, bring your favorite frying pans and your favorite knife. The owners are wonderful with true southern hospitality. My kids were thrilled to be able to play tennis across the road at the owners court. We were less than a half hour from Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown. Also very close to stores but still away from it all. The grounds were gorgeous with the trees and flowers just beginning to bloom. We loved it.
