Take a cruise on the Breeze to Tangier Island. A little history about Tangier Island. The tiny island community has attracted the attention of linguists because it's people speak a unique English Restoration-era dialect of American English. Few cars are present on the island, tourists and islanders all get around on golf carts, boats, mopeds, and bikes. Tangier is often referred to as the 'soft-shell crab capital of the world'. There are several resturants and gift shops. The Breeze leaves at 10am and returns around 4pm from Historic Reedville, Virginia, the center of the largest fishing industry in the United States. Only 1.5 hrs away.
Or take the Rappahannock River Cruise on the Captain Thomas. Departs from Hoskins Creek in Tappahannock at 10am and returns at 4:30pm.

Once there enjoy a buffet style lunch, take a tour of the winery and taste some of the wines that Ingleside has to offer after the tour. Only 40 miles from the beach house.

David and Virginia Geib. We are long time residents in the Washington Metropolitan area. We have grown to enjoy the Colonial Beach area and hope that your family enjoys it to.
This home was custom built for us as a secondary home but since then we have decided to rent this home on a weekly/weekend basis. We hope that whoever stays at our home enjoys it as much as we do
The favorite part of the house will have to be the sunroom with the large windows to view the sunset in the evening. This home is very well kept, close to Monroe Bay and a short walk to the beach.
