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.
