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 buisness. 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

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.

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.

PERFECTLY TRANQUIL!!

  • 5 of 5
This was just as we anticipated and so wonderful and relaxing. The view is spectacular and there is a lovely patch of beach. The porch is screened in for comfort, and we spent most of our time out there. Beds are comfy, kitchen well-equipped. We loved our canoe venture out into the bay too! Owner, Shannon was very helpful and responsive. You will love this place!!

BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 4 of 5
My family stayed here and this house was so nice! The house looked brand new and was beautifully decorated. The owners were available to answer any questions or make any suggestions for whatever you might need. The view was awesome and the beautiful birds and stingrays were so cool to see. The breeze coming of the lake on the deck beneath the house was pure perfection. The house had just about everything you might need. Oh and it does have internet. I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because of the following things. It would be nice if the upstairs had some kind of shades because although the view was stunning it would be nice to sleep in if desired (the sunrise woke you up bright and early) on your vacation. I was also disappointed with the beach and water access. We have young kids so when the tide was high the beach was gone and when it was low the water was too shallow even for them to swim in. You can't get in the water without water shoes because the bottom is pretty rough. The only other recommendation I have is maybe upgrading the TV in the living room. We brought our own blu-ray player but the TV was older so it didn't even have a spot to hook it up. Again having young kids and a few rainy days it would have been nice to put on movies for them or us. With all of that, we still had an amazing time, it was peaceful and sooo relaxing. Oh and I LOVED the screened porch!! It was even screened underneath so no bugs which was such a good idea! Thanks again!!

BEAUTIFUL HOME...WONDERFUL SETTING

  • 5 of 5
My wife, 3 year old daughter, and I spent five days here in April 2013. The home is beautiful - the main floor consisted of a kitchen, sitting area, bedroom, and bathroom. The second floor was an amazing master suite bedroom with king bed and bathroom. It was exactly as seen in the pictures. The home was well stocked with everything we needed - including things like salt & pepper, coffee, and even a full supply of toilet paper for our stay. There was a small washer & dryer available as well. The kitchen is well stocked with plates, cups, utensils and the like. The outside screened porch was very pleasant to sit on and enjoy the scenery.

During our visit it was a bit chilly and windy at times, but we were able to go into the water a couple of days using the small beach in front of the home. Sunrise was beautiful - especially from the master suite.

The home is well located to the area - downtown Gloucester is only a few minutes away with a variety of shops, restaurants, and historic sites. Yorktown is about 30 minutes away and Williamsburg is about 40-45 minutes depending upon traffic and route. We ate at Oliva's in downtown Gloucester and Riverwalk in Yorktown and recommend them both.

The owners have recently added internet access - a necessary evil when you are on vacation - and there were two televisions with Directv and DVD players. Although we didn't watch much TV, we did spend some time watching the events surrounding the Boston Marathon (home for us) and the subsequent search.

All in all we had a very relaxing vacation. We were up early every day with the sunrise - and with good reason - as the view was breathtaking and the windows were uncovered. Those with small children my want to devise a strategy to cover the windows in the bedroom if you don't want to wake up too early :-).

We would recommend this home to anyone who was interested in vacationing in this part of Virginia.

GA AND WV WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
The description and pictures of this cottage were accurate. Property was clean and well maintained. It had everything we needed and more. K cup coffee maker was a plus for me. The gas fire place kept us warm.This was the perfect place for us to spend time with our friends and just relax for a long weekend get a way.The view of the sun rising and setting over the water was just beautiful.We just felt safe here.Small town country atmosphere at it's best. Good local places to eat (Olivia's and Jessica's "Loved the sweet's at Jessica's") and the little shops in town. A Walmart super store is nearby for anything you need.Williamsburg is nearby for more attractions, site seeing and shopping, a nice day trip.The Richmond Airport is convenient, a easy drive to the cottage. The owner (Shannon) was great and easy to work with, she answered all my questions and made sure we had everything we needed on our arrival. Thank your son for the dozen of fresh eggs. We also enjoyed the snow on Saturday, it brought back memories of our wedding day 35 years ago.(February 1978) We loved our stay, would recommend this property to anyone wanting to kick off their shoes and just relax. Can't go wrong with this one. Would love to bring our grandkids back in warmer weather so they could enjoy the water. Thanks again Shannon,from your friends in Georgia and West Virginia.

PERFECT VACATION RENTAL FOR RELAXATION

  • 5 of 5
We were so glad we had chosen this cottage for our vacation rental when we arrived. My husband and kids were amazed how beautiful the cottage and its surroundings are. I was so glad they all decided they wanted to enjoy the next day at the cottage relaxing at the beach and having fun at the slide and kayaking. I was able to take a much needed nap in the hammock enjoying the sea breeze. My husband made good use of the outdoor gas grill. We were able to visit Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens, and Water Country USA. Buying the multi-park tickets online was a good deal. We were still able to stay at the cottage for a couple of days to relax. We were also able to visit the homemade ice cream shop and use the vouchers to enjoy a delicious treat. Thank you Shannon for allowing us to stay in the cottage and being so pleasant to work with. We all truly had one of our best vacations ever!

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
Exceeded our expectations! We absolutely loved our stay at the river cottage. Beautiful home away from home with everything you could need. We came to the area to visit the historic triangle, but loved the cottage so much it was hard to leave. You feel as if you are really secluded, but you are within 15 minutes of a Wal-Mart and everything else you could possibly need. Gloucester Courthouse is an adorable historic town just 10 minutes with lots of good restaurants and shops. Cottage is 30 minutes from Yorktown and about 45 minutes to Williamsburg and Jamestown. Thanks to Shannon and Corey for letting us stay at your beautiful cottage!
