Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for a week. The house exceeded our expectations! The house was bigger than expected, spotlessly clean, decorated nicely, with a stocked kitchen and bath. Our hosts went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The kids loved fishing off the dock and a kayak was made available to us. We highly recommend this rental!

The Real Deal

  • 5 of 5
Vianna and Joe
Pennsylvania

“A Shore Thing” – this house is the real deal. Everything about the house is perfect, inside and out. Its furnishings, room layout, modern appliances are excellent. Views across Maddox Creek from the deck (where we had daily breakfast), or from the pier and boat house on the water all contribute to a most enjoyable stay. When was the last time you had an opportunity to feed swans by hand? More importantly, the house and surroundings fully meet all stated descriptions on the web site. You will not be disappointed when renting this beautiful home. We don’t usually return to previous vacation locations, but we would make an exception for “A Shore Thing”.

Owner's Response: We thank our renters for their wonderful review. They sent us a picture taken of a bald eagle up in one of the nearby trees. It's that time of year when they come up the creek to fish. Seeing swans take flight is also magical! Thanks once again for staying at Ashorething!

relaxing in the convenience of home

  • 5 of 5
With high expectations but even higher exceeded did we spend a week at the cottage. Before we went inside we sneaked in the backyard and were amazed by the beautiful view of the lake which has it's own private boat dock and shaded seating area. The inside of the cottage is absolutely beautiful and so comfortable and well taken care of. We felt we moved into a new home!
if you are looking in spending some family bonding time, this is the place to be.

Great Vacation Spot!!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our time at "A Shore Thing"!! David and Amy were great and very accommodating! We checked in late, as we were at my niece's wedding in Culpeper, Va. in the afternoon and it was no problem. The house is stocked with everything one would need for vacation. When we walked into the living room and looked out, the swans were swimming up to the dock! My sixteen year old son was amazed. Feeding them became one of the fun things for him to do!
The cottage is located close to many of the things we wanted to do, but so quiet if all you want to do is sit on the dock and take a nap!!
We were close enough for family to come for the Fourth of July. We sat on the dock and watched the neighbors fireworks!
The weather was great for our entire visit! We are from Louisiana so we really enjoyed being able to live outside on the deck and dock. The view is amazing, so calm and peaceful. We are looking forward to coming back.

The greatest compliment is that it felt like home from the minute we walked in and we didn't want to leave!

Owner's Response: We very much appreciate the feedback. Still endangered, the swan population has grown and we now have a dozen or so swans stopping by the pier for visits. Blue herons, mallard ducks, ospreys and bald eagles also add to the list of birds around the property. Glad everyone enjoyed the house, surroundings and scenery at Ashorething !

A Shore Thing

  • 5 of 5
Delightful home away from home! David and Amy have thought of everything; you will want for nothing. Full kitchen with everything you need to cook. Grill for outside cooking. Wifi, large screen TV, DVDs and lots of books to read in a cozy living room facing the water, with open area to the dining room. Beautifully decorated with many nice touches. Lovely newly added king bedroom and bath. Everything is sparkling clean and fresh. Convenient drive to downtown. Not everything was open as we were there a bit early for the season, but there are restaurants, sandwich shops, a diner...we even found a gym where we paid a walk-in fee of $7. Met great people in the area...be sure to meet Emily at Hall's and ask for a sample of her home made applesauce. A Shore Thing is perfect..whether you just want to relax and sit out on the doc and look at the scenery and nature, or take a short drive to area attractions. There is lots of history in Virginia so there is much you can see in a day trip. Thank you David and Amy for making our vacation extra special after a very long winter.

Owner's Response: Our guests were the first to stay at Ashorething since the addition of the new master suite with a waterfront view. We are very pleased that the 'new and improved' Ashorething received another 5 star rating. Thank you.

This was the best possible place to vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
The home was beautifully outfitted for our every comfort. Everything was clean and wonderfully decorated. The view of Maddox Creek was outstanding with a great dock to watch boats and kayaks! We were able to enjoy the beach, visits to Washington's and Lee's birthplaces and take day trips to Washington, D. C. and Monticello in Charlottesville. We were treated as honored guests of the owners who provided many extras for us. Thank you for a vacation that we will remember forever. This is an outstanding vacation rental.
