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 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

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!

Relaxing, beautiful house.

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful place! Looks out over the water. Very relaxing and peaceful! Plenty of places to go looking for antiques. Not far from Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens. Lot of historical places to go see. Would definitely recommend this house.

Relaxing

Quite, quaint and clean. Beautiful location, close enough to things to do and far enough away to be away. Gloucester is a very warm pleasant community. Some good local restaurants, wonderful produce/seafood market and lovely shops. Close enough to larger cities for a day trips.

Awesome Relazing Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great house, well kept with nice linens and lots of little extras like coffee already there. The porch in the evening listening to the water was the best part. The kids had a blast playing in the water, and the guys took the kayaks out as well. Truely a hidden gem on the water away from the hustle and bustle of life!

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.
