Harborton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom with fireplace and balcony plus a sleeping loft . Sleeps 3

Imagine getting away from it all by crossing a footbridge to an island Victorian cottage on a small lake. This guesthouse in Pungoteague is no mirage. Pretty Byrd Cottage on Evergreen Farm, an 18th century estate on the Chesapeake Bay, is a unique oasis which combines the best of today's conveniences with the charm of Victorian decor.

Surrounded by a three-acre pond, the cottage is accessible by walking across the footbridge or paddling over on the paddleboat. Enjoy breakfast on the Victorian Porch, then take a stroll through the gardens, or put on your bathing suit and stroll to the beach on the Chesapeake Bay. There are even kayaks if you are so inclined. You can even feed the fish from the bridge.

A charming retreat for couples or a pleasant solo getaway, Pretty Byrd Cottage is a unique and delightful experience.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm

A Dream Come True

This place is a dream come true. Honestly a little piece of heaven. I could go on and on... but truly it is unlike any place I've ever been.

This is a picture perfect place.
It was more than great, it was awesome. We spent our honeymoon here and could not believe just how gorgeous this cottage was. The host were excellent while still respecting our need to be alone. The kitchen was fully stocked right down to the sparkling cider for our toast. This is a must do again and I highly recommend this place for couples to spend some real quiet time together.

Thank you Kathy & Rhet

Idyllic, Serene, and Relaxing.

  • 5 of 5
In looking for a week-long birthday solo getaway, I rented Pretty Byrd because of its beauty inside and out and because of its idyllic location. I have an incredibly stressful job with so many demands - and the thought of running away to a remote cottage on a lake for five days seemed like the perfect antidote. And it was. Hardly any cell reception, no internet, no television (yes, there is a DVD player but who cares?) - complete bliss. I couldn't get plugged back into the office without a 25-minute drive. The home itself is even better in person - so cozy and sweet. Cathy and Rhet made me feel so welcome - I learned the history of the cottage and in reading the guest book, I learned about all the visitors before me that fell in love with Pretty Byrd just as I did. I will definitely return.

What a quiet place to gather with friends and talk, talk, talk. Cathy and Rhett left us a radio, a bottle of wine, and a refrigerator full of breakfast foods and snacks. The party was on! It is very difficult to get phone reception, so chat with the spouses was kept to a minimum. This is our second go round a the cottage and the paddle boat is always fun. If you take it over to the little island, bring something to clean off the chairs as this is pretty "byrd" cottage. We watched the sunset over the water from Cathy and Rhett's back yard (bring bug spray and the wine). The next morning we went for a jog. Beautiful scenery. They mentioned a kayak, but were not there long enough to use it. I would suggest bringing the bicycles.

I can not believe that I am so late in submitting my 4th review of this beautiful property. We were here again May 2013 and felt like we were coming home. Cathy, Rhett, the geese and the fish in the protecting moat, welcomed us with open arms.

What made me realize this oversight was looking at their reservation calendar today and deciding to come again in May 2014. Last year we came back with the primary purpose of recovering from shoulder surgery. I had the same procedure on the other shoulder, so now it is time to put my feet up again.

For anyone looking to get away from it all and totally relax, this is an ideal location. The cottage is great and the hosts are better than family.(We want to come back)

Cathy and Rhett---we will see you soon.

The perfect romantic get away!!!!!!!!!

My husband and I spent out honeymoon at this beautiful place. It is so much more than we expected. It is so quiet, clean and relaxing. The host are amazing. I hope we can go at least once a year from now on to celebrate our marriage. Words can not express how wonderful this place is you just have to go experience it for yourself. I will say the sun set is breathtaking. It a must do again and again.
