About Cathy Bokman

We first discovered Colonial Beach in 2006 and after enjoying the easy drive from Chevy Chase, MD and the warmth not only of the beach, but also the people...we bought a small cottage on the Point in 2007. We loved sharing it with our family and friends. When not relaxing at the beach, my day job is in the hotel business and I thought it would be fun to own a vacation cottage rental. In 2011, we bought our first beach rental; Beachcomber I on Hawthorn with some of our family members and undertook a major renovation...all of the hard work was worth it...we enjoyed being able to share this hidden secret of Colonial Beach with others. The overwhelming acceptance and positive comments we have received from guests saying how much they enjoyed their stay was very gratifying and in 2012 we bought another rental; Beachcomber II on Wilder. It, too, has been well received by our guests. I will say, it is a lot of work keeping the houses nice for our guests...but I have tremendous help from a team of local people who make sure it is clean, keys work, everything is in working order, lawn cut..special thanks to Katie and Phyllis who treat these cottages like their own and Ethel, Chris, and LLoyd who pitch in, as needed. I know, like me, after you experience the welcoming calm of Colonial Beach, you will be back many times...and we hope it is at one of the Beachcomber Cottages!

Cathy Bokman purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Cathy Bokman chose Colonial Beach

We chose this property for a couple of reasons; view, size, location, and the fact that it was demolished to the studs so that it was really a clean slate. As we reconstruct it; we are changing the layout for maximum enjoyment of the view and adding the ability to have a guest suite within the house. Also we liked that it was one story; through the past several years of renting we have found that many of our guests want the accessibility of one level living.

What makes this cottage unique

We think you will enjoy the views from the front porch, livingroom, and dining room. We think you will like that it is close to a quiet beach. Many guests in our past rentals have enjoyed that we are family friendly; including your dogs. Please tell us what you enjoy!

Nice place!

  • 4 of 5
As noted, the house has been newly renovated. Pictures don't lie - great layout and nice design. There were 8 of us and we had plenty of room. It was great having 3 bathrooms! There are several small beaches all within walking distance. None of them were ever crowded. We took a day trip to Westmoreland State Park - well worth the visit. They have some great hiking trails, beaches AND an Olympic sized swimming pool. Also took a tour at Ingleside Winery - had fun doing the wine tasting. My son, son-in-law and grandchildren went fishing with Captain "Frog" and had a great day! They caught plenty of fish which we had for supper that night. (I left Captain Frog's business card in the binder at the house.) Kids had fun riding the bikes provided by owner - nice small town so safe for kids to ride around.

A family vacation to remember at the Beachcomber III; the newest of the Beachcomber cottages... currently undergoing a complete renovation....it will be ready in June 2014 for its first guests! Our 4 bedroom, 3 bath vacation home, is family and pet friendly. This cottage features a quiet location with waterview and is steps to the quiet Castlewood Beach and boat launch on the Point. Located one mile from the center of town; the house is close to the beach and Docksides Restaurant bar and marina is just 3 blocks away!

The beauty of the Beachcomber III is it is perfect for families and couples. The house is a one story easily accessible home featuring 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. House has great space to relax with a large open eat in kitchen, livingroom and family room with den. A hidden gem of the house is that there is the ability to have privacy in the back of the house for a couple with a bedroom, bath, kitchenette, and den; that can be locked off for privacy.

The enjoyment of the Beachcomber isn't limited to the house. It has a fenced courtyard, great for children and pets. Also we feature a gas grill and picnic area; great for crab picking!

Colonial Beach, Virginia...the Gateway to the Northern Neck of Virginia.... a beach front haven, less than 2 hours from DC, along the Potomac River. Many say, it is place that time has forgotten with its slow pace, friendly people who wave as they drive past you on their golf carts, wide beaches where the Potomac River is 4 to 6 miles wide, within minutes to historical attractions; George Washington's Birthplace; the Lee Family Home, Stratford Plantation, explore Westmoreland State Park, and find Shark's teeth and more, great boating, fishing,crabbing, and discover the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail, Westmoreland Berry Farm. several great waterfront restaurants, waterfront live bands on weekends during the summer, great crabs. Just a quick hour away is Kings Dominion Theme Park; featuring great rides and waterpark.

Thanks for looking and be prepared to fall in love with Colonial Beach and the Northern Neck!

Become be one our first guests in Beachcomber III - Waterview!

Notes:
This house is the third of our great Beachcomber Cottages; all listed on Homeaway; Beachcomber I (900979) and Beachcomber II (956917). Under total renovation, we bought this shell of a house that was demolished to the studs; it has new plumbing, AC, windows, flooring, insulation, lighting..really ALL NEW. Also the house, is one level living; with easy access so while not handicapp has great accessibility with walk in showers and wide doorways. There is a terrific waterview from not only the front porch, but also livingroom, kitchen, and diningroom. The large family room features a stone fireplace and plenty of space to gather. We are excited about our third cottage and hope you will make it part of your family's vacation plans! We also welcome well behaved dogs; fee does apply.
