Cute, cozy, and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is exactly as described! It is super comfortable, clean, and has everything you'd ever need. We stayed with our 2 year old son and the space was perfect. The beach across the street was awesome. We walked to the playground everyday. And enjoyed a BBQ dinner at home (in the cottage) every night. Coffee on the front porch every morning overlooking the river was another huge perk. Really a lovely place to stay!

Perfect beach cottage

  • 5 of 5
We so enjoyed our stay at this cozy cottage. We are a family of 3 with a young son, staying for Colonial Beach's Riverfest. The cottage was wonderfully decorated and had all the amenities you could want . It was just a stones throw from the beach which we all enjoyed and made it great to view the fireworks and was an easy walk to the boardwalk and many of the towns shops and restaurants. John(the host) was so welcoming and was so kind to our son . We were so relaxed here, just lounging on the porch and ate most of our meals here. I grew up spending a lot of summertime in Colonial Beach as we kept a boat there and had family nearby. I'm glad to say it's kept a lot of the old fashioned charm, where people stop to chat on the porches, my son can bike ride(roads are nice and flat) and we can just unplug and enjoy real family time together- thanks for making it such a great getaway for us. We certainly hope to be back.

Fantastic Cottage Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently returned from Colonial Beach, where we celebrated our anniversary and stayed in this amazing cottage. The description and pictures are completely accurate. A comfortable little cottage and just steps away from the beach. The owners take a lot of pride in their investment and it shows in this cottage.

The owners themselves wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. And while they wanted to make sure they did not bother us, we couldn't help but engage them in conversation on the history of the town, as well as the property itself. We truly enjoyed our time with them.

The community of Colonial Beach is great. While the properties offers bikes for the guest, we did most of our travels by just walking the area. It is so close to some great restaurants like Densen's Grocery, as well as some fantastic little art shops. We stopped by Pottery by Hand, where we took a private lesson from Hannah in throwing clay on the wheel. We had such a great time and have the pottery to always remember our trip.

It truly is a great getaway from all the hustle and bustle, where you can enjoy the little things and some quiet time. I would highly recommend this property to all of my friends and family and we, ourselves have this place marked to return soon.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you had a pleasant visit to our off beat haven from the hustle bustle of this sometimes crazy world. We also enjoyed your visit and getting to know you two. I was worried that all the bad weather would dampen your enjoyment but, as you noted, there are so many things to do and Hanna is a wonderful pottery person. We would luv to welcome you back any time you happen to be on the east coast.
