CHARMING BATTLEFIELD COTTAGE - TOUR RUN BIKE ROMANTIC GETAWAY

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!

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.

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
Sheri and Rob,
Thank you for wonderful stay at the Yorktown Battlefield Cottage. I enjoyed the view of the York River from the upstairs sitting area, the proximity to the battlefield for morning and evening walks, and the comfort provided after the end of a long day. I also appreciated the small touches of hospitality....the coffee and tea, the area information, the super comfortable chairs and bed, etc. The cottage was just what I needed after a busy week of meetings and sightseeing excursions and visits. Thanks so much for an enjoyable stay. I highly recommend the Battlefield Cottage to others!!

BEST STAY IN HISTORIC TRIANGLE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Battlefield Cottage for a week and can only repeat what other reviewers have! If you like attention to detail and peace and quiet, you will be more than happy with this rental. The cottage is more than roomy for two and the flowers and chocolate were a welcoming touch upon arrival. Not to mention all the extras (bikes, beach towels, golf clubs, coolers) you are welcome to use. Sherri and Rob were welcoming and helpful hosts. Be sure to do the battlefield auto tour they provide (once the National Parks are open again!), visit the Victory Center, and take a sunset sail on the schooner. Visit Historic Jamestown and take the tour by the archaeologist--very interesting. Visit Jamestown Settlement to see the reconstruction. And, of course, Williamsburg is a 2 to 3 day visit itself--try Chownings Tavern for lunch and Shields for dinner--and just sit and watch the 18th century go by. Then return to the cottage and relax in this little hideaway.

COZY AND COMFORTABLE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week at the Charming Battlefield Cottage to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We will always remember our stay and hope to visit again some day. The cottage is so Cute, Clean and Comfortable. We did not meet Rob, he was out of town that week, Sheri was so great and made us feel so comfortable, it was like we have known her for years. There is also so much to see and do in the area. If you stay at the Charming Battlefield Cottage you will not be dissappointed.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week at this little battlefield cottage. Everything of this experience was just
perfect. We have stayed at 10 or more VRBO listings in this country and Europe and the Mann's cottage was probably one of the best. Sheri and Rob have thought of everything a guest might need.
The cottage is in a wonderful location in a charming little town where there is lots to do and see. Sheri was so helpful to us recommending places to eat, driving directions and generally being the perfect hostess. We would highly recommend this home away from home.
