Gloucester House Rental Photos and Description

3 BRM/2 BATH. on 2 acres of waterfront property

Our beautiful, spacious ranch style home is tastefully decorated and sits right on the banks of the historic York River. Our 200' private dock has a charming little bench at the end and fishing rod holders for a relaxing day catching some sunshine in the spring, summer and fall, as well as fabulous fishing of all sizes, 6'-10lb., and many varieties, such as croaker, spot, red drum, catfish, striped bass (rock fish) and skate. There is a small beach to take you into the river for some swimming or for some watercraft fun, such as kayaking and canoeing (which can be rented locally or you can bring your own) during the warmer weather. Our home is off the beaten path but has a direct route into town or to one of the many attractions in the area. Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown and Busch Gardens are within an hours drive from our retreat. The exciting and delicious Urbanna Oyster & Seafood festival is the first weekend in November, Friday 11/6 and Saturday 11/7/15, and is less than 20 miles from our house in nearby Urbanna, VA. Our lovely living room is filled with beach-themed accents, a large flatscreen TV, wifi, a Bose stereo system, cozy leather couch and a pretty 'beachy' holiday tree to celebrate your vacation time! The kitchen is delightful and has all the amenities you could want and the gorgeous dining room looks out at the river flowing by. We have a comfortable sun room at the back of the living room and the two over-stuffed chairs and ottoman's have a relaxing view of the water, too. Our gentleman's parlor is wonderfully decorated with leather chairs, a fabulous chess board, a built-in cabinet filled with books and games and other eclectic furnishings. We have three large bedrooms, all with a flatscreen TV and quality bedding. One room has a queen bed and sports a nautical theme. The second bedroom has a king bed with a weaved headboard and retro leather swivel chair to relax in and the third bedroom has a full bed, a twin daybed, dressing table and an ensuite. Perfect for a family when they need some downtime. There is also a charming full bathroom off the main hallway and an efficient laundry room for our guests to use. Please, come and enjoy one the best vacation homes at the most affordable price in the Gloucester area! We are close to DC, Baltimore, Richmond, and just over 6 hours from the NY Metro area. What are you waiting for? Come stay at our one-of-a-kind retreat! Please call me directly to discuss a reservation, 973-769-4628! Please do not rely solely on e-mails.

About Karen Sabin

Karen Sabin purchased this house in 2012

Why Karen Sabin chose Gloucester

Our property is private and secluded and offers a sense of serenity. The 200' dock has a nice bench at the end to make you feel like you are floating on water and watching the sunsets from there is absolutely fantastic! We found this property years ago and did extension renovations to make it feel like a home-away-from-home. We have furnished it with only the best and have added personal touches to enhance the rooms. We hope all of our guests have a memorable experience staying in our home! Please call me directly to discuss a reservation, 973-769-4628! Please do not rely solely on e-mails.

What makes this house unique

Our home is located a few miles off the beaten path, but close enough to local attractions. Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown are across the York River, which you can see from the back of the property. Busch Gardens is nearby, too, as well as historic Gloucester Courthouse. We are only 6 hours from the NY/NJ area and just 3 hours from DC and Baltimore. Please call me directly to discuss a reservation, 973-769-4628! Please do not rely solely on e-mails.

Wonderfully Relaxing Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is just like the pictures, no surprises. It has everything you need for a weeks vacation. The dock provided wonderful views of the river and sunsets, and we enjoyed fishing and crabbing from the dock. In the yard there is a beautiful (huge) wooden picnic table close to the river, we were able to enjoy two meals out there. I had never been to the area and had questions about the rental and what to do while there, they were very prompt with getting back to me with any question I had and was very helpful. I would definitely go back to this home.

Wonderfully relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time in this home immensely -- just wish it had been longer! The setting is gorgeous -- it felt completely private, and the yard, dock, etc were all extremely well-maintained for guests' enjoyment. Our kids had a great time playing bocce on the expansive back lawn and we sent an entire day just fishing off the dock and kayaking. The house itself was lovely, by far the nicest bedding and towels I've ever seen at a VRBO property, and the home was filled with so many nice touches. The only thing we found lacking was a big pot to steam all the crabs that we caught off the end of the dock! I would definitely stay here again if I were in the area.

Very nice home and responsive service

  • 4 of 5

The York River home was well priced, especially as regards to other competing homes on the VRBO site located in the general area. And service was responsive. I'd like to have given it 5 stars but we had a few problems, first with A/C and also a few other items. They were fixed very quickly, however. I must say the view was wonderful and the outdoor space was the best. LOVE that picnic table! My husband and I and our daughter and her BF had a great 4th of July supper and used the convenient outdoor grill.

My husband loved the view, the number and quality of TVs and the WiFi.

The linens were of nice quality and quantity. I've stayed at a lot of places where they either had no wash cloths or there were only a few, so this was a nice amenity. The decor was extremely pleasing and you could tell the owners/manager took great care to make sure the home was comfortable. I still say the cook top needs improvement and a couple NEW non stick pans would be wonderful. The older ones worked reasonably well, but not great.

The area is gorgeous. It does take a little driving to get places, but that's country living, as my daughter said. ;-)) We still managed to visit Richmond and the capital building there. They had a wonderful tour guide. We also hit Williamsburg, Yorktown, Virginia Beach and Charlottesville (Monticello).

The weather was muggy and hot, which prevented full enjoyment of the home. But the home is roomy, comfortable and did I mention the view? The sunsets were spectacular and you can see the view from almost every room in the home.

I gave my list of recommendations to the manager, Karen, and she was very grateful and solicitous with a prompt return of my deposit. This is a new listing but I think with time and feedback from future renters, it will become a VBRO favorite. And did I mention the view? ;-))

I was very impressed with the privacy & serenity.

  • 5 of 5

The home is stunningly well appointed with a nautical feel.

The fishing was bountiful and had several meals on the picnic table which seats 12. I enjoyed the cathartic feel of the property.

Customer service was excellent and the house was immaculate.

I plan to stay a month next year.
