Jamestown-Williamsburg Area, Surry Va. A unique cozy Beachfront Cottage. Awaken to the sun rising over Jamestown Island--the birth of a nation. Sip coffee and walk the sandy beach. Enjoy the panoramic expanse of the James River. Retrace Pocahontas’s travel to Jamestown Island now enjoyed on a 20-minute ferry crossing with your car. Arrange a romantic dinner at the river prepared by a local chef or order a massage by a professional masseuse…just some of the possible pleasures at the 'Rivah' Cottage. Jamestown (3/4 miles), Colonial Williamsburg (5 mi), and Yorktown offer multiple days of enjoyment. In Surry, Smith’s Fort (2 mi), Bacon’s Castle, and the owner’s favorite, the beautiful 265-acre Chippokes State Park (a Plantation Home and working Farm) on the James River not to be missed. Shopping delights, restaurants and golf courses are advertised in a book full of maps and experiences to help you plan your day…or not! Beach chairs, novels or yoga make relaxing alternatives.
Option #1: A local Chef, Jane, offers an array of sumptuous menus (emailed upon request). Services range from Breakfast-in-Bed, picnics to go, meals dropped off or cooked on site. Jane worked for many years for Fetzer Vineyards in California before opening her very own 'Dish Cafe and Wine Shop'. Since moving to Surry six years ago, she has worked at area restaurants in Williamsburg and for caterers providing meals for special events. Consider treating yourself to one of her many selections or custom order your own menu.
Option #2: Enjoy an afternoon being pampered and order a massage in the privacy of the cottage for $70/hr. Contact the Owner for arrangements.
Option #3: Enjoy a motorboat ride down the James River ending with a meal at a river-marina cafe. Also, the State Park near the Cottage offers morning and evening canoeing, fishing providing bait and rods, fossil walks hunting for sharks' teeth, whale bone and the state fossil, Chesapecten Jeffersonian. There is also a guided River House tour by candlelight.
We supply hundreds of suggestions for filling your day to make your visit the first of many. You can never finish seeing and doing all that the Williamsburg area has to offer.
We've traveled enough to know what it takes to feel elegant and have everything you need. You don't even need to bring your toothbrush. Being a former realtor, Carol knows about property appeal. She knows a lot about mental health and creating a feeling of wellness. One you will want to repeat.
This is one of few Riverfront properties offered in the Williamsburg area. I want to share my view with the world and pass on to you the inner peace you'll feel during your stay with memories that will bring you back again. Weddings, Anniversaries and other special times are our speciality.
Watch the eagles and osprey glide by, sometimes a pelican or two.
In sight of the ferry landing on a short, dead-end road.
This cottage is about as close to heaven as I will ever get. I have had many wonderful weekends in my time but none as elegant as this one. Thanks for the memories.
