Yorktown Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

'Huzzah!' (A 'colonial cheer') and Welcome! Your quaint and charming Yorktown cottage awaits you. Formerly the studio of renowned folk artist Nancy Thomas (visit her galleries in Yorktown & Williamsburg)this newly renovated (Jun 09) cottage is located in a quiet and scenic neighborhood on the Yorktown Battlefield on a bluff just above the York River. Your home away from home is just less than a mile across the battlefield to Historic Yorktown (a nice walk around the earthworks or a very short drive) and one-half mile from the Yorktown Coast Guard Training Station. The neighborhood of about 40 homes was laid out in the 1920's as an area of 'summer retreats' for folks from Richmond to escape the summer heat to swim, fish and crab in the York River. It is the only neighborhood completely within the confines of the Colonial National Historic Park, and sits directly on the Revolutionary War Battlefield (Oct 1781) and between the Union and Confederate lines on the Civil War Battlefield (Battle of Yorktown, May, 1862). Your hosts Rob and Sheri can provide as much information as you desire about local history, attractions, and the local area.

Your cottage includes everything you need to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Most folks come to explore the Historic Triangle (Jamestown-Williamsburg-Yorktown). But there is also Busch Gardens, Water Country USA, and a host of other activities nearby. The Colonial National Historic Park and adjacent Newport News Park have over 25 miles of tour roads and trails perfect for runners/walkers/hikers/bicycles...(your bicycles are ready!) In fact, Yorktown is the East Coast Terminus for a transcontinental bike route and the scene of numerous Peninsula Track Club and Colonial Road Runners Club races each year. Walking the mile long Riverwalk (along the York River) from the National Park Service HQ to the Yorktown Victory Center is a popular activity as well as overland hiking to the many little known Civil War sites within the park (we'll tell you where they are!)

Your all-new full kitchen has everything you'll need to prepare any meals you wish. We'll start you out with coffee and teas, bottled waters and toiletries. If you'd like to dine out great seafood is available evenings at the River Room (Duke of York Hotel) or Nick's Riverwalk Restaurant both right on Water Street with York River views. The Schooner Alliance (at our Water Street docks) is available for mid-day or romantic evening sailing. Don't miss a breakfast or a lunch at the Island Cafe also at the Duke of York Hotel.

Your cottage is a beautiful drive up the Colonial Parkway (3 lanes, no stop signs or stop lights) directly into Colonial Williamsburg and on from there to Historic Jamestowne. Perfectly located, your personal retreat is also well suited for painting, writing, or those doing historical research at Colonial Williamsburg and nearby sites.

Very nearby is the Yorktown Coast Guard Training Station. Graduations occur almost monthly. The cottage is a perfect place for parents and spouses to stay and only one-half mile away. Also, a perfect place to stay to attend graduations at the College of William and Mary.

There are five beautiful golf courses within 15 miles...your clubs are provided. The Yorktown fishing pier requires no license, we have all your fishing gear waiting.

Holidays and special events are a great reason to visit Yorktown. A perfect place to stay if attending a wedding at the historic 'Freight Shed' on Water Street. The 4th of July in Yorktown features all day activities, an evening concert, and a spectacular fireworks display over the York River! 'Yorktown Day' (19 Oct) is the anniversary of the British surrender at Yorktown and always a day long celebration with ceremonies (many visitors from France). From Thanksgiving through Christmas Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg have continual activities throughout the holiday season that are a joy to all. Yorktown is an all-year-long fun place to be...your cottage awaits you!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I spent a week at the Charming Battlefield Cottage and absolutely loved it! Our hosts were very generous in all that they provide and attentive to our needs. The location was quiet and private while being within easy access to all that the historical triangle has to offer. Would highly recommend a visit to the Charming Battlefield Cottage!!

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were in town for brief tour of the area and elected to stay in a quieter area away from the hustle of major towns - this place was a perfect fit! It's close enough to everything and yet it's a very peaceful place to come home to at the end of the day.
Pros:
Super clean (and I'm really picky about this)
Fantastic hosts
Well stocked and appointed guesthouse
Convenient location
Unbeatable price
Washer/Dryer
Air Conditioning
Cons:
The bed with a bit too firm for me (but it wasn't enough to detract from my stay)
Those with respiratory allergies might want to bring their own sheets - a bit too much dryer sheet scent (they offer use of the washer and dryer so you could also quickly wash and dry them if needed and the hosts were so wonderful I'm sure they'd take measures to fix things if you notified them of allergies prior to your arrival)

This place is absolutely adorable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to any and everyone. My husband and I hope we get the opportunity to stay here again someday. A huge thank-you to the hosts - they were always available and helped make our stay in the area a fantastic one.

Best Place Ever

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent our 5th anniversary here. The cottage is exactly as described and more! It is the perfect location for relaxing (private beach!) and exploring. We took full advantage of the triangle, Busch gardens and Virginia Beach. We spent the day at the Waterfront which has great restaurants and shopping. York beach is great too. Sheri and Rob are great hosts! They provided everything imaginable. Definitely the place to stay. We look forward to being able to return!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I spent 7 wonderful nights in the cottage. We had a great time exploring the historical triangle as well as going to see the USS Wisconsin in Norfolk and taking a trip to Virginia beach at night (a little more than 1 hr away). Sheri and Rob supply the cottage with all the things you would need to cook a meal at the cottage. They also supply plenty of information about the area with pamphlets and books. My boyfriend got great use of the books. The cottage is wonderful and so are Sheri and Rob. Upon arrival it was raining, Sheri came out with umbrellas ready for us. If you are looking for a great quiet get away, this is your place. No need to look any further!

We had 10 fab nights in Sheri & Rob's charming cottage. It's everything you need plus extras. Use the bicycles and explore, walk into Yorktown for a meal, sit and enjoy the peaceful garden, do the history and culture or like us enjoy visiting family in Newport News. Sheri & Rob are lovely hosts and nothing is too much trouble. We will definitely return. Xx

Comfortable, cozy, private cottage

  • 5 of 5
Dear Sherri & Rob,
Thank you so much for sharing your “Charming Battlefield Cottage” with us, it is exactly as described. The cottage is very comfortable and homey, and the two of you made us feel very welcome. Thank you for the coffee and tea, candy, and the flowers that added a burst of color and a welcoming touch! We hope to return to continue visiting the historical sites in the surrounding areas.

This cottage is very clean and is in a very quiet, very safe area and is centrally located to Jamestown and Williamsburg as well as restaurants and shopping.

The historical triangle of Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown is a must see; allow at least a week to see everything. Highlights of the triangle are Yorktown Victory Center, Yorktown Battlefield Visitors Center, Historic Jamestowne, Jamestown Settlement, and Colonial Williamsburg.

Jamestown, Historic Jamestown, and Yorktown Victory Center are run by the state; Yorktown Battlefield Visitors Center and Colonial Williamsburg are run by the Federal Government so bring your National Parks Service pass with you.

Thank you both again for the hospitality and service to our country.

Bob & Renee D.
