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, as well as fish 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 kayaks and canoes (which can be rented locally or you can bring your own!). 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. We have a lovely living room 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 to the back of the living room and the two over-stuffed chairs and ottoman's look out at the river, 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 for your relaxation 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 the best vacation 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.

Our family loves our beautiful vacation home because we see sunsets like this most nights of the year. The secluded location and serene surroundings offer our family a retreat from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. We truly relax when we visit our home and hope our guests will do the same! Please call me directly to discuss a reservation, 973-769-4628! Please do not rely solely on e-mails.

Karen Sabin purchased this house in 2012

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.

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.

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.

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.

Additional information about rental rates

cleaning fee $195
Refundable damage deposit $400
The refundable $300 security deposit is due to hold the reservation and to cover damages and/or excessive cleaning issues that may occur during our guests stay. I usually get that back to the guests within a day of their departure. Half the total balance is due 30 days before intended arrival and the balance is due upon arrival. Monthly rentals require a $600 refundable security deposit.
Notes Credit card payments will be charged an additional 1% of total rental or $10.00, whichever is greater, to cover rising bank fees. We thank our guests in advance for their understanding of this new policy and will continue to provide the best vacation experience to our guests.
