CHARMING RIVERFRONT COTTAGE FOR TWO WITH SUNRISE VIEWING FROM THE FRONT PORCH

Colonial Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

An authentic restored beach cottage with pleasing decor and great location

The Coral Cottage, aptly named for its beachy exterior color, sits a stone's throw from the riverbank. The Potomac River, which is 4 miles wide at this location, can be viewed inside through large windows or outside from the front porch or from double chairs at the river's edge. Hardwood floors and tasteful decor throughout the cottage please the eye, enhanced by the natural light from the many windows. There are two sitting areas in the front room -- one with a comfy couch and flat-screen TV for movie viewing and the other with chairs for reading and chatting. The kitchen is open to the front room with a sitting bar between. The bathroom with tub/shower and private bedroom are screened from the front of the house. Through the back door in the kitchen, there is a covered porch.

During your relaxing stay at our cottage, wake up to sunrise over the river and then enjoy your morning coffee on the front porch as you watch osprey and cormorants fish for their breakfast. Then hop on a bike* and take an easy, scenic 3-mile ride along the river and bayside. Or jump in your rented golf cart to tool into town to a quaint shop or family-run restaurant -- no chain stores here! A 10-minute walk or a 2-minute bike ride will bring you into town to the public beach, town fishing pier, visitor's center, marina or museum. Nearby wineries, historic sites and parks provide opportunities for other daytime activities. Nighttime activities range from star-gazing and wine/tapa sampling at The Tide's Market to tiki bar hopping and casino gambling at The Riverboat.

* Bicycles can be provided upon request

My wife and I have spent the last 3 decades getting to know Colonial Beach and growing to love its slower pace and unique charm. Although we have experience with rentals through our work, The Coral Cottage is our first vacation rental home.

John Lozinyak purchased this cottage in 2010

In 2011, we worked to restore this small cottage, attempting to keep its best features and at the same time opening up its interior by removing some walls and expanding its exterior views and natural light by replacing smaller windows with larger ones.

We think the cottage is in an ideal location with it's river frontage and quieter setting... yet convenient to the amenities of the town.

This is the one!!

I am so glad that I found this cottage when searching for my weekend getaway! John and Susan were so welcoming and helpful. Everything was perfect. The pictures don't due this sweet cottage justice. If you are used to small town living as I am, or want to experience it, this is the place to be. The people are friendly, and the neighborhood is peaceful. Sitting on the riverbank, drinking coffee, listening to the water lap the shore and watching the sunrise was AMAZING! I was even greeted with a personal note wishing me a peaceful weekend and along with lovely treat! Although I only live about an hour and a half away, I plan to make this a trip again, and next time I plan to stay a little longer~ While you are here, take a drive to Stratford Hall Plantation and visit "The Cliffs", breathtakingly beautiful site to see!

Quiet retreat perfect for a couple!

The cottage is well decorated and extremely clean. The owners are very generous with their time and resources. They left us a bottle of wine and some flowers :) When they found out that there was a boil water warning for the town, they called ahead to remind us to bring bottled water. It turned out that we didn't need the water after all and that it was cleaned for our stay, but we thought it was very considerate to receive that phone call from the owners! They also saw us on a bike ride and offered to pump up the tires- they are very available should you need them! Otherwise, the area of colonial beach is very quiet and fun. Take a bike ride down to the boardwalk, get some ice cream from Nancy's, and eat fried seafood at Wilkerson's! Then enjoy the sunrise and sunset in the chairs across the street! We didn't stay long, just for a few days for the weekend of our anniversary, but we loved it and would return! We also learned a new game and watched a few movies! Thanks for a great anniversary!

Perfect place for a vacation.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cottage by the river over a long, 4th of July weekend. We had an absolutely fantastic time. The place was so clean and just as described...maybe even better. The owners were both wonderful people, and couldn't have been nicer. We plan on returning again as soon as we can and would highly recomend this cottage to anybody who is interested in a stay in charming Colonial Beach!

Charming River Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had the most wonderful stay in Colonial Beach at this lovely cottage. Beautifully renovated with lots of windows looking out on the Potomac River. We loved sitting on the front porch and also in the Adirondack chairs overlooking the river. Great location - a little distance away from the public beachfront area made it to be a quieter side of town yet that area was only a short bike ride away. We loved that bikes were included in the rental. Full kitchen was nice for cooking, and we also enjoyed the stellar Thai restaurant in town, The Lighthouse, for an amazing waterfront meal. The owner of this property was very helpful and responsive, and everything was very clean and we had everything we needed. Overall, very comfortable, charming, and relaxing place to get away for a few days and be near the water!

Colonial Beach is a golf-cart community with a retro 1940's/50's feel and beachy look. It appeals to young couples, families, and retired folks who appreciate quaintness and want to avoid the cookie-cutter beach resort scene. It's great for biking and walking within the town, fishing and boating on the river and visiting parks (historic and otherwise) and wineries nearby. Local businesses provide opportunities for shopping (antique/thrift/consignment shops), dining out (restaurants, coffee shop, gourmet markets), and entertainment (tiki bars, gambling casino, special events).
