Why Larry and Sheila Tinker chose Gloucester

This cabin has been in my family since 1941. It was being built by my grandfather and his 3 sons(my father was 7 at the time) when Pearl Harbor was being bombed. So it has a lot of memories in it for my family. My husband and I bought it from my 2 uncles in 1991 and now share 2/3 ownership with my dad. We have refurbished it and updated it without taking away the beautiful memories of the history. You can still see the handprints on the A- frame wood ceiling from where they had to place each piece.

This cabin means a lot to me and my family and we look forward to sharing it with you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were looking for a relaxing waterfront getaway that was quiet, yet still had nearby activities. This place was perfect!! We spent part of each day exploring the area, but returned in the afternoon to enjoy the beach here, and spend time on the porch watching boats and the birds. Caught a few fish too!!

Thank you for a lovely stay.

Perfect Honeymoon setting!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin and its location was absolutely perfect for our honeymoon week! Sheila and Larry have everything you could want or need ready for you. The cabin is in a quiet, secluded area, but close to everything. We spent most of our week touring the Historic Triangle, but couldn't wait to get back 'home' to the cabin. It was so peaceful, so clean, such cozy decor. How great it was enjoying the deck or screened porch, taking in the view of the river. I can't wait to go back! Thank you Sheila and Larry for sharing your little piece of heaven with us! Kim and John

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This Cabin is Paradise. This was our second stay in only a few months. The cabin is beautiful. Very clean and well kept. Beautful deck overlooking the water to watch the dolphins as you sip your coffee in th morning. Very quiet and peaceful We brought our young children this time and they had a wonderful time fishing, playing on the beach and in the water, hunting frogs and visitng yorktown and Williamsburg. The home owners are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Will be back for yrs to come for our family vacations.

Relaxed and Enchanted where the U.S. all began....so surreal!

  • 5 of 5
First thank you for allowing others to enjoy this fantastic property. You are very accommodating and friendly. Everything was neat and we had all that was needed for a lovely stay. The cabin was spacious and unique. The views and beach gives the best gift of all to expand your mind....loved it! The location is close to everything, grocery, post office, fitness center, but being at the end of the road and across from the park felt very private. Being right on the point of were the battles took place was amazing and learning our history made me understand so much. Loved Yorktown Pub and that whole scene directly across the river. I was so impressed!! We would return.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The ladies and I had a wonderful Pre-Mothers day vacation. Friday evening we had dinner on the deck and watched a beautiful sunset. Saturday we walked Main Street in Gloucester and had a wonderful time. There are great shops to poke around in.

Notes:
There is a public boat launch less than 1 mile away and room to park a trailer at cabin. There is no dock at this time,but can secure in front of property by anchor. Use is at your own risk. The landscaping is a constant work in progress. There is a queen size sleep sofa in the living room for extra guests or the kids and a single fold out cot. A 32' HDTV in the main room and a small TV in the bedroom.. Some kids games. The electric fire logs in the fireplace, can be used without heat year round for ambience. The cabin is on a hill.There are 21 steps from the private parking area, but we also now have made a driveway up to the cabin, so now there are just about 4 steps to the walkway.Much easier access to the front door!! There is a table, 4 chairs, with cushions, and an umbrella on the deck for eating outside. There is a set of wicker chairs and cushions on the porch for just relaxing and taking in the view. And the Beautiful Sunsets! WOW!!
