Guestbook comments from the owner

I turned on the computer to write to you and there was your message to me! Just wanted to say thank you for the towels and all you did to make our visit perfect. (we are giving the kids goggles for Christmas in remembrance of their pool time there). Everyone who has asked me how the trip went gets the same answer : "on a scale of 1-10 it was an 11" I also tell them that as beautiful as the photos were on line, it even more wonderful in person. We were so relaxed that we never left for the week except for grocery runs. The children enjoyed scavenger hunts each day--swam--played with all the games we found!

Fantastic Vacation Home for Large Group!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 10 adults and 6 kids had a great time this summer at the James Ross River Plantation! It isn't easy to find a place with what it takes to comfortably host such a large group, but this place fit the bill. Two fridges, extra freezer, large kitchen pantry and large BBQ let the piles of food needed get stored and prepared. The huge dining room let everyone eat together. The main floor master suite was very comfortable for those past comfortably using stairs. Upstairs 4 large bedrooms and two bathrooms were very nice too. The air conditioning, with separate thermostats upstairs and down, was up to the task for cooling Virginia summer heat. Lots of covered, screened porch outside too which we loved and used a lot. The Wi-Fi coverage was very good (both in the house and at the pool house). Better than most vacation homes we've stayed at previously, and as the group ages more kids are using more devices every year! The "house rules" including what to do when you leave were very reasonable. Simply empty the fridge, garbage and pile up your provided sheets & towels, and be on your way.

Outside there was LOTS of room to run around, and play our family baseball games. It's an active group so having room to roam was important for us and a big part of the fun for many of us.

Maybe the best for last - the pool house was FANTASTIC! I worried an indoor pool house in the summer would be too hot but, not if you're swimming which is the whole point! We found the temperature of the pool and the pool house very comfortable for use even on hot summer day. And beautiful at night with the pool lights. Bathroom with shower and deck off the side made the pool house a long term destination many days.

We found Linda, our liaison for the rental, extremely professional and helpful. We happened to be in the area the year before and she spent lots of time with us giving us a full tour which helped greatly in our decision to rent.

We had such a great time being together and hanging out, that we barely left other than to buy food. Maybe next year we'll do more area exploring. Because we definitely anticipate returning!

A True Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Time has gotten away from us since our visit to this beautiful home, just as time flew by too quickly during our Christmas stay at the James River Plantation. Although our visit seems long ago, our memories are vividly happy ones. From the moment we unlocked the first of two gates that protect this beautiful and secluded home, we knew we were in for a special and relaxing vacation.

When the main house came into view, we felt as though we had gone back in time to a country estate. The house’s wonderfully furnished interior was just as impressive, with its welcoming foyer; comfortable dining room, den, and bedrooms; and large modernly equipped kitchen, pantry, and laundry room. The view overlooking the water was lovely from sunrise to sunset whether we were having coffee on the front lawn or dinner in the large, glassed-enclosed porch. Yes, we had sunrise coffee in the front yard in December! The pool house (and its pool) is quite large and includes two bathrooms with showers, a table and chairs, and an outdoor deck with lounge chairs and a view of the main house and water. The heated pool was a perfect temperature.

The town of Urbanna is quaint, and everyone we met there was very friendly and hospitable. Many thanks to Linda for promptly responding to pre-rental questions and helping to make our stay so enjoyable. It was a perfect Christmas getaway. We hope to return to the James River Plantation, perhaps explore its beauty in another season.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We were unbelievably impressed everything was wonderful, the pool was great, Chris even came by to check up on us to make sure everything was good, which was wonderful, then Linda was very appreciated, everything was great, the grill even had an extra tank of propane just in case it was needed, plenty of trash bags, even provided aluminum foil. Another thing that was very nice was had an additional fridge on the porch, and even a chest freezer in case extra space was needed, the games in the living room were really nice too, it was a older home but wow water pressure in the showers was great, the shower in the pool house was nice also, so after this week of our stay if you are considering this vacation house, go for it, and have a great time, it's everything they have listed and more

Another Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5
This was my second stay at JRRP. My family, ranging in age from 1-89, all had a fabulous time!! We were all there to celebrate my son’s graduation from Christchurch School and it was perfect for us! The space is great for multiple generations and we were all able to fit around the dining room table, which was awesome! This is a wonderful old house with lots of character, and original features, which we all loved! If you are looking for new or modern, this house is not for you. However, if you want a classic river house, with lots of space, which accommodates different ages very well, this is for you! The pool house is amazing and allows the younger crowd to stay up later having fun without disturbing anyone else. We absolutely love this property and hope to return for a family reunion! Linda, the property manager is always responsive and helpful. The house is very close to the cute town of Urbann, where there are restaurants, a market, coffee shop etc. There is also a mini golf and ice cream shop just down the road. I would highly recommend this property to anyone!

The P.S. Family

  • 5 of 5
James Ross Plantation was everything described and then some. If you enjoy a beautiful old home, situated on the water, with lots of amenities then this is the place for you as it was for us. We had a wonderful family vacation here and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Waking up to the symphony of birds each morning and watching the peaceful sunrise was the perfect way to start each day. The ospreys, herons and even a beaver were sightings, which added to our enjoyment. The indoor, heated pool was an added luxury which we enjoyed daily, rain or shine. Linda and the very helpful pool man ( ? name) were quick to respond to our requests. We look forward to returning next year for another relaxing and fun filled family vacation.

The property was as advertised and photos were accurate. Our party of 7 had a wonderful time in this beautiful home with gorgeous surrounding property. The indoor pool was fabulous and appreciated in the sometimes cool weather. The owner, Linda was very attentive to any of our needs during our stay.

The home easily accommodated our party of 7 with room to spare for more. The kitchen is large and has all the necessities and the adjacent dining room has a large table for all to enjoy the meals. A large enclosed porch and other smaller rooms allow visitors to find some quiet space for reading etc. The outdoor brightly colored wooden chairs were used repeatedly and came with a wonderful view of the water and surrounding bush. Great place to watch the Ospreys rearing the young ones on a nearby nest.

Lots to do in the area. The ladies loved the nearby yard and rummage sales and nice shops in Urbanna and the boys caught enough catfish for a meal.

Sunrises over the water were especially lovely.

The nearby Food Lion grocery store is large and has anything you need with a good selection and friendly staff.

Our group loved this home so much we've booked it again for next year.
