SECLUDED WATERFRONT FAMILY HOME W/ DOCK + SAND BEACH; FISH; SWIM; GREAT VIEWS

White Stone Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3Bedrooms, 2Bathrooms Sleeps 6 near White Stone, Lancaster Co.,Virginia, USA

This secluded three bedroom home is on an old family vacation retreat on Francis Point . Our family would love to share this beautiful spot with yours. Our Small sand beach is a wonderful place for children to play and the shallow water is also ideal for wading and dip-net crabbing. This relaxing getaway on Carter Creek, is in the tidewater area near where the Rappahannock River joins Chesapeake Bay.

Make sure you bring along your binoculars to watch the birds and boats. At night, this is a great location for star gazing, as we're far from the bright city lights.

You can fish and swim off our dock and moor your boat (5' depth at end of dock at MLW), or pull your small boat up on the shore.

While you are here you can visit historical sites, colonial churches, museums, old fishing villages and interesting antique and other shops. Marinas and charter fishing boats are also nearby, as well as golf courses & great restaurants.

There are plenty of other tourist attractions to visit within an hour + drive

Away for the weekend

  • 3 of 5
This house is a wonderful location with lots of privacy, beautiful beach, and on a very historic point of land. It is an old farmhouse with old bathrooms and decor but very homey. Kitchen is new and very well equipped not only with dishes, pots, and pans but with also supplies of things that you may have forgotten. We enjoyed our stay.

Lovely cottage on white sand beach, with it's own private pier. Wonderful views. The cottage was very clean and the kitchen well-equipped with anything you might need. Safe, convenient location.

Sweet Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our family has stayed at Francis Point for a few different occasions; family retreat, girlfriend weekend, anniversary celebration. They are gracious hosts. The crab were plentiful off the dock. The fish were biting. We enjoyed a picnic on the beach and the dock. We played Clue by lantern light on the back porch in a storm; it made the game particularly fun! With coffee on the dock in the morning and wine on the porch in the evening; it was delightful. We miss it still! We can not wait to get back to that part of the country.

Excellent long weekend -The fish were biting!

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent a long weekend at this cottage. It is on a beautiful point and set off from the Rappahannock River, and tucked away in calm waters. Lots of privacy. Great for the dog as well. The fish were practically jumping on our lines so if you have young kids they would love this. The house is fully stocked and well organized. It is not overdesigned so you feel right at home and comfortable. Good for canoeing and kayaking. You could also bring a larger boat there, but we did not. There are also a few good local restaurants but this house is built for staying put and relaxing. Thanks - we loved your place!!

Owner's Response: We are always pleased when our guests have a good time. We've had a number of others say the fishing from the dock -(and from a boat in the River) was great. The crabs have also been plentiful here. We do welcome larger boats, too, as the water is 5 ft. deep at Mean Low Water (low tide). Glad we were able to accomodate you on short notice.

Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Francis Point Cottage. The location was exactly what we were looking for - remote and very quiet but not too far from town, and in the Northern Neck. The property faces Yopp's Cove, providing a beautiful view, a good place to put in our kayak, and except at highest tide, our very own small but private beach. The house sits near the end of a pennisula where Carter's Creek joins the Rappahannock River, so there is a view of the Rappahannock also, and the breezes are cooled by water no matter which way the wind is blowing. Yet White Stone is less than five minutes away, and Kilmarnock only 15 minutes or so

The house itself has everything you might need during your stay; the kitchen is well equipped, there's plenty of space to spread out, and the porch facing the cove was our favorite room. Six people could stay here quite comfortably; eight is probably doable, more would be a squeeze, though I'm sure it's been done. The process for checking in and checking out is simple, and communication with the owner is timely and thorough.

Overall, the only problem with our stay was that it was too short; next time we will definitely stay a full week.

Family Friendly

  • 4 of 5
My family and I have visited Francis Point Cottage for several years now. It's hard to find a spot on the river or bay that has all that it does! Nice sandy beach for young kids to swim or catch minnows (sandy beaches are hard to find on the river!). A dock for Dad's fishing boat. Crabbing. Beautiful wildlife. The lot is VERY secluded. There are some very nice restaurants nearby. The location is perfect - on the inside of creek, where I love to kayak, but close to the river and bay for hubby's sport fishing. A grassy yard by the house for outdoor games like frisbee, croquet or bocce is also fairly unique. Great views for those who prefer to stay dry and cool indoors. Something for everyone! The cottage is older, but I find it to be relaxing and charming. Ever year our family considers where we will vacation, and we can't stay away. We love Francis Point.

This secluded home is on an old family farm/vacation retreat with wonderful views all around. Families will enjoy relaxing in this beautiful, peaceful, rural tidewater area. We're on Carter Creek (see picture), 10 miles up the Rappahannock River from the Chesapeake Bay. The small local towns of White Stone, Irvington and Kilmarnock have festivals, antique shops, good restaurants and museums. Visit historical sites, old fishing villages and Belle Isle State Park. Small sandy beach at cottage is wonderful for small children. Crab, fish, watch the birds and boats and star gaze during the dark nights. Bring your boat or you can charter fishing boats nearby for a great day of fishing in the Rappahannock River or Chesapeake Bay. Williamsburg and Busch Gardens Amusement Park are about 55 miles. Norfolk is 75 miles and Virginia Beach is about 90 miles (2 hours). Washington, D.C. is about 3 1/2 hours away. There is a duck pin alley in Kilmarnock.

Other Activities: Go dip-net crabbing, fish or swim off the dock - pull-up ladder available. Sunrises, sunsets and Star gazing are great at the cottage. Kayaks can be rented and delivered to the cottage. There is a nearby ramp for launching your motor boat and personal water craft which you can tie-up at our dock.
