CHARMING PRIVATE COTTAGE ON 100 WATERFRONT ACRES

Gloucester Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, full kitchen, living and dining rooms, screened porchs

Looking out across our horse pastures to the North River, Toddsbury Cottage has its own screened porch to provide you with hours of pleasant relaxation. Situated at the end of the lane bordering the walled garden and apple orchard, the Cottage is private and quiet. Oriental rugs, two fireplaces, and rich upholstery invite you to relax in the Cottage's downstairs rooms, while up the winding stairs, a romantic, canopied, four-poster queen bed awaits you in the large bedroom. Furnished with 18th century dressing table, bureau, and chaise lounge, the Cottage bedroom has windows on three sides that look out to the North River. Two additional twin-bed bedrooms, one with a genuine Franklin stove, can be added to a booking to accommodate a family of five.

Welcome to Colonial Virginia: An avenue of towering red maples serves as your welcoming committee at Toddsbury Cottage, located in beautiful Gloucester, Virginia. Standing tall and stately, these silent sentinels guide you up the lane to the place you'll call home during your stay. Toddsbury Cottage is the essence of a wonderful Virginia getaway.

Surrounded on three sides by salt water, the property sits majestically on 100 acres of Virginia countryside in the historic Tidewater region off the Chesapeake Bay.

Out here, where the land meets the water and the present meets the past, you'll have a rare glimpse of life as it once was in rural Virginia . . . unhurried, gracious, and breathtakingly beautiful.

Property History: Established as the 17th century estate of sea captain Thomas Todd, these broad fields stretching down to the tidal river have been farmed for more than 350 years, and have earned the designation Centennial Farm by the Virginia Department of Agriculture. Toddsbury, the original home on the property, is a National Register and Virginia Historic Landmark house, which today serves as the private home of the Montague family who own Toddsbury Cottage.

Just left Toddsbury and are making plans to go back. The house is gently weathered and comfortable with ample space for the four of us (two adults, two small kids). Beds are comfortable. Can't say enough about the hospitality, attentiveness, and friendliness of owners, who are just across the spectacular walled in garden. If you are looking for modern and shiny this is not your place. If you are looking for cozy, genteel, gracious accomodations a little off the beaten path (but with easy access to the Historic Triangle's many attractions) surrounded by spectacular pastoral scenery and water look no further.

Toddsbury Cottage

  • 4 of 5
The property was clean and well maintained. The rooms were clean and homely. The owners are friendly and pleasant and offered lots of suggestions for us to do. The cottage was in a pleasant location and there was lots of room for our children to run around in. The only downside was that we had very poor cell phone reception (AT&T) and there was no tv!! However, there was a video/dvd player that we could use. Lots to do nearby from visiting historic Williamsburg/Yorktown/Jamestown to Busch Gardens (my childrens favourite place!). A very enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend it.
