SECLUDED WATERVIEW HOUSE WITH PRIVATE DOCK NEAR CHESAPEAKE BAY

Gloucester House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

At the end of a sandy lane, Ferry Creek is waiting for you to discover its mystery and beauty. The property is located off of the Piankatank River and is 7 miles, by boat, to the spectacular Chesapeake Bay! Bring your water craft and enjoy deep water docking at the private pier. Spend days on the water and fun filled evenings with friends and family or bring your journal and simply relax on a 28 ft deck/balcony with serene views of water and landscaped grounds.

Enjoy sightseeing in Yorktown, Williamsburg (Busch Gardens and Water Country) and just 10 minutes from historic Gloucester Courthouse.

Unique floor plan allows you to gather for shared activities or steal moments for yourself. Great for Reunions and Girls Getaways! Bring your imagination and Ferry Creek will do the rest!

If you have a larger group and need overflow room..........consider additional space in waterfront FERRY CREEK COTTAGE VRBO listing # 591005....It is directly across the street and is a smaller 2 bedroom/1 bath directly on the water.

Upon request, special arrangements can be made such as catering and kayak rentals. We are proud to sponsor works by local artisans and make them available for purchase.

APRIL STAY.

  • 4 of 5
It was important for me to have some down time away from the standard hotel, people and noise. This place was just right. Quiet, comfortable, with no pressure. Water access and great views of nature and water.
We were able to cook in and with a short drive eat out and see the sights.
Size is right for two people let alone the deck space.
Thanks again to Pam for thinking of what we might need for our stay we could not have asked for more.

PEACEFUL RELAXATION!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here while I worked in a neighboring city. I was here on and off from Feb. 2013 to August 2013. I am ssoooo happy that we picked this house! The house was the perfect size for my family and I and friends that would come and stay too! It has a great common area and having 4 floors helps with the privacy when needed. The view of the water is amazing. It is great to fish and watch the sunset! The next time we go to this area we will be staying there again! It is well worth it!! It is close to so many interesting sights also!

Owner's Response: ....It was such a wonderful experience having you stay thru the summer at Ferry Creek....and bringing family thru the season to enjoy the area. You definitely tried out the local dining spots ! I am still recommending with great success the Sandpiper Reef for seafood ......and several other restaurants you tried. You were my greatest "culinary reviewer" ! Hope you will find your way back down to the Creek one day soon!!

PEACEFUL....BEAUTIFUL....SERENE!

  • 5 of 5
Like Forrest Gump says, "It's like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get." After looking at several VRBO's (a really great way to see places, btw) we chose this property on Ferry Creek. The pictures just do not do it justice, it is so spacious, open and beautifully decorated - the skylights make it so bright and cheerful. I got such a 'kick' out of the main bathroom....I could never tell if the lights were on or not....really wonderful! We enjoyed the views from the large deck and only wish we could have spent more time just 'chillin' there in the peacefullness. But, alas, we were checking the area out for our (imminent) retirement, so we were kept busy. The owner, Pam, was very helpful and knowledgeable and so great in directing us to all the local amenities and sites. She even brought us a lovely Williamsburg Wine with a cheese platter after our long hard day 'scoping it all out' . Thank you, Pam, we will be back - but the next time we will definitely be there for a longer stay....maybe until our 'new' home is ready! :-)

TRANQUIL AND QUIET

  • 5 of 5
Everything was really great. Every year I go on vacation with my sisters and we always choose somewhere different to go. I have to say this was such a secluded, tranquil and relaxing place to go. When we got there, a cold bottle of wine was waiting for us along with muffins. It was so welcoming. If you want to get away and boat and fish on the river, write a book or read, or just enjoy the quiet, and look at the river when the sun goes down you wouldn't be disappointed. The house was so lighted with natures light with skylights in the livingroom, bathroom and dining room which made you feel even closer to nature. The owner could not have been more gracious. The rooms were peaceful, and we did not need for anything. We also were not too far from going sight seeing. I would definitely go there again and try a different season of the year.

Owner's Response: A "Sisters Getaway Reunion"......Just love knowing that you all had a ball...exploring the area with days of high-activity and yet having the quiet serenity to come home to each day!! Come back soon......there's so much more to EXPLORE!! Be sure to see the Yorktown Farmers Market next time...they have some good crafts and music!!

FAMILY VACATION LIKE IT SHOULD BE!

  • 5 of 5
Surrounded by breathtaking beauty Ferry Creek was just right for our family of seven to reconnect without distraction. The well designed and decorated space was conducive to our focus on the family festivities. We enjoyed games, old family favorite movies, cooking together, and lots of time to relax and talk on the deck.
We brought kayaks and fishing rods for simple fun off the pier. Probably the only thing we wish we had had was a boat to enjoy river sports to the fullest. Pam, the lovely keeper, was great to work with and has provided all the necessary amenities for a delightful care free get away!
