Overview

Overview

Williamsburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 BR, 1 BA, Sleeps 5, private and close to Jamestown and Williamsburg

Our waterfront beach cottage sits on a bluff overlooking the James River and Jamestown Island, with steps down to your private beach. You will have the privacy of a cottage and will be directly across the river from Jamestown and Williamsburg. The view of the river is wide open (about a mile to the left is the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry Dock and to the right is Cobham Bay)

Watch spectacular sunrises over the river from the deck or the air conditioned/heated front porch. After enjoying a day of history in Jamestown, Williamsburg, or Yorktown, or some of the other attractions Virginia has to offer, come back to relax on the 'rivah' in the privacy of your cottage. Sometimes just sitting quietly watching the movement of the water, a tug boat going by, or eagles and ospreys fishing is just what is needed after a busy day. The moon coming up over the river is as beautiful as the sunrise.

Our cottage is in a neighborhood where there are no other rental cottages, only cottages used by their owners. There are no houses behind the cottages. Once you leave the paved road, you are 0.3 mile down a lane from the start of a perfect vacation.

The free car ferry is part of the Virginia Department of Transportation and runs every 30 minutes during the day until 9 p.m. when it runs every hour during the night.

Two kayaks, a row boat and canoe, adult and children's life preservers are provided. Also provided are beach chairs, beach umbrella, cooler, beach towels, floats, children's beach toys, and fishing poles with gear.

Our cottage has a fully equipped kitchen with countertop oven/convection oven, stove top, refrigerator, icemaker, microwave, coffee maker (with filters, coffee and sugar), toaster, and blender. Dinnerware, silverware, glassware, cookware, cooking utensils, paper plates and cups, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, baggies, coffee, cooking oils, basic spices, condiments, sugar, hand soap, dish detergent, dish towels and cloths, paper towels and trash bags are provided. In the backyard there is a gas grill ready for your barbeque.

The cottage is centrally heated and air conditioned.

All of the bedrooms are equipped with bed linens, extra blankets and linens, a clock, and a flashlight. One bedroom has a TV and DVD player.

The living area has satellite TV (DirecTV) and a DVD player.

The Bathroom has a tub with a hand-held shower. Hair dryer, towels, toiletries (soap, shampoo, conditioner, hand lotion), paper products, and first aid kit.

We do not have internet access, however, the whole historic area of Williamsburg has free WiFi. Go to www.williamsburgwifi.com to see the coverage area and instructions to connect. Also, most restaurants and stores in the Williamsburg area have free WiFi.

Brochures for tourists attractions are provided.

This is a wonderful place for children but the cottage is not child-proof. Cottage sits on a bluff with steps to the beach.

Pets are considered, and if approved, there is a $100 fee per pet. Even though some of us like to take our pets on vacation, the next family that rents our cottage should not see any sign that a pet has been there. Please email or call us about your pet.

Why A.C. Traylor chose Williamsburg

Our cottage is in a perfect location for privacy, has a beautiful view, a private beach and the James River to play in, but close to the ferry that will take you across the river to visit the sites you came to see. It is like having the best of both worlds. You will understand why the people who have a cottage here love it.

What makes this cottage unique

Private, beautiful view, can have fun on the 'rivah' as well as visiting Jamestown, Williamsburg, Yorktown, Busch Gardens, playing golf or shopping at the outlets.

Shell paradise that's a haven for little ones and close to Williamsburg, VA

Shell paradise that's a haven for little ones and close to Williamsburg, VA

Our family had such a great time at this adorable cottage! First, Linda and AC (the owners), included much more than is typical for a home rental so read the description before packing essentials or stoping by the grocery store. We were impressed with how clean the cottage was and the welcome gifts left for our arrival.
One of the most unique features of this cabin is its location on the James River. You are literally across the river from the Jamestown Settlement (which you can see from the cabin) and all that Williamsburg has to offer. The ferry ride across the river is a lot of fun, especially if you have little ones as we did.
The beach is so nice for letting the kids and furry friends run wild. We were amazed at the shells and fossils we found.
This is a remote little paradise with lots of outdoor activities at the ready and a car ride away from Busch Gardens and the awesome history on the founding of our great country!
Thanks, Linda and AC!

Cannot wait to be back

  • 5 of 5
It was perfect. It was the vacation that my whole family truly enjoyed. We cannot wait to go back again. It was relaxing. Linda and AC really make us feel special with welcome goodies that we really enjoyed. My husband and I felt in love with kayaking. We kayak across the James River, it was a great workout. There were a lot of great DVDs that kids really enjoyed watching. We all got up early one day to watch the amazing sunrise. After this trip, we plan to learn to fish. We saw fish just jumped out. Next time we visit there, we would like to catch our own dinner. This place is a gem.

Slowing down and enjoying the sweet life

  • of 5
This home away was everything it claimed to be and more. Beautiful home with sweet thoughtful touches. It was so quiet and peaceful we felt as if we had our own private island. The beach was beautiful..the seashells were huge and gorgeous, the river huge. We all caught fish. Our dog never had so much fun. He was pooped out every day. We really didn't need to go to any tourist places. Although we were a short ride from the ferry which was cool. Five stars to this home. Woyld definitely love to return.

A Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
For a truly relaxing and historically rich vacation spot, Bay View is the place. With thoughtful attention to every detail, the owner's gracious Southern hospitality shines bright. Arriving to a meticulously clean house, with beds made, baskets of fresh towels, muffins for the morning, and a bottle of wine, made settling in a breeze---especially appreciated with young children! We thoroughly enjoyed the boating options (with kayaks, rowboat and canoe), the plentiful fish in the river (both freshwater and saltwater), the warm, calm water, and the gently sloped shore of the James River, the private beach replete with interesting shells, and the breathtaking array of birds, from eagles to osprey, blue herons to hummingbirds....a birders treasure trove. The proximity of the cottage to the Historic Triangle offered an abundance of history, from the birthplace of the first permanent English colony at Historic Jamestowne, to the birth of the United States of America in Yorktown. The only disappointment was the necessity to leave after our week stay.....we will greatly look forward to another visit!

Bay View is Awesome

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful vacation spot. The owners have thought of everything to make your vacation spectacular. The cottage has everything you need and is so clean. The owners are wonderful people and made us feel right at home.
The views are just amazing. We enjoyed kayaking for the first time, swimming and relaxing on the beach watching the birds.
Hope to return next summer to this rich in history vacation spot.

Like coming home to family

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful gem is picture perfect. Every detail has been thought of ahead of time by your "new, extended" family. The owners are kind and caring and they have lots of little treats in store for you and your family. It's peaceful and picturesque. My children (ages 4 and 7) really enjoyed their time here on the "rivah!"
