About Shannon French

When I was 27 years old, I decided to sell real estate. Shortly after at the age of 29, I decided to open my own brokerage, Southern Trade Realty (Oct. 2006 so you do the math to see how old I am now)! I quickly learned to combine my passion for designing, creating and decorating to another level. I started to invest in real estate at a very young age, and I am still very passionate about it. I really enjoy getting to know my guests and proud to say I now have repeat business. I concentrate on making sure my guests are happy and I take pride in the comfort of my properties and of course, the decor has to be just right. Feel free to call me Shannon 804-815-1912.

Shannon French purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Shannon French chose Gloucester

This area is where I personally grew up. I remember the days on the river at a very young age. I fished, crabbed, learned how to swim, relax, kayak, explore and I am still enjoying all of this today with my family and friends.

What makes this cottage unique

Pictures cannot even describe this property (many of our guests say this once they arrive). It is one of the most serene places to be. Listening to the waves crash up against the rocks at night, taking a nap in the hammock on a warm summer afternoon, to watching the Osprey on the river, there is not a better place to enjoy nature at it's best. It is all at your fingertips.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the pleasant and memorable stay. We love your cozy cottage. Our second stay is as good experience as the first one. See you next year. Happy New Year!

This house is remarkable. Period.

  • 5 of 5
It was everything that was described in the VRBO listing and more. I was looking for a small place in a tranquil setting on the water not far from Richmond as the trip was a surprise birthday getaway. This home did not disappoint. It is beautifully decorated yet cozy and warmly inviting and the master suite and bath are to die for.
It was wonderful to see both sunrises and sunsets over Mobjack Bay and the river from all the windows in the main living area and the master upstairs. The home looked exactly like the photos and suited us perfectly as we specifically planned to stay in, relax, read and shoot photography of the water, coast and foliage. The furnishings are lovely and as we planned to cook our meals the awesome kitchen was part of the reason I chose this house.
We will be recommending it to everyone and definitely going back. Thank you so much Shannon.

Amazing Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home during the last week of June, 2012. We had a wonderful time. Every detail is covered by Shannon and Corey. The beds are so comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, the coffee was provided, and the water was gorgeous! My husband and son enjoyed crab hunting and we all spent time in the water. It was difficult to pull ourselves away from the house to see the sights. It took about 30-45 minutes to Yorktown/Williamsburg. We also visited Norfolk. However, we changed our plans to spend an extra day at this wonderful home just enjoying the Ware River and the cottage. We highly recommend this property and all it has to offer.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful property over Thanksgiving weekend. We were able to find the property without difficulty even though we arrived in the dark on the evening before Thanksgiving. We were thrilled to wake up the next morning and see the water all around us. What an amazing location and view! The property was wonderful Even though it was November, the days were warm enough that we enjoyed breakfast in the sun on the porch. We would definitely recommend and hope our travel plans allow us to return someday.

Springtime on River

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed this place Spring, 2010 during the Daffodil Festival in Glocester. The location was wonderful; loved the General Store and traveling to historical areas. The home is tastefully decorated with beautiful views of the river. A local gentleman told us there is no land between us and the Africa!
Not sure about the exact date; however, it was during the Cherry Blossom festival in D.C.

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I truly cannot say enough things about how wonderful our time was! The house is gorgeous! Everything is so tastefully done, and the views are priceless. The house is spotless and the beds are so comfortable. The town of Gloucester is close enough but the house retains a quiet seclusion so that we really were able to relax. The local general store was a treat...and not to be missed! Say hi! to Miss Luci in the post office within the store!

Things not to be missed are.....the Produce Market in Gloucester (great for those fresh items you might not want to pack and for local oysters), Olivia's (great, well-priced food with a casual atmosphere), and Nuttall's general store (nice prices and very convenient -- good for local souvenirs).

Shannon is a wonderful host! I look forward to seeing her again on our next trip -- because we will definitely stay here again!
