Swim, kayak, hike, bike, fish, catch crabs - explore nature at its best - all on our property!

We are Northern Virginia natives who cherish convenient getaways to water and woods. We found it on the Chesapeake Bay. The easy commute to a nature-lovers dream located in a folksy, family-oriented community is all we could ask for.

Bill purchased this estate in 2013

The tranquil setting and spectacular views are why we chose this property. We've owned another nearby Bay-front home for two years and continue to enjoy it immensely (VRBO#399839). But this property is different and unique in many ways. We look forward to enjoying and sharing both properties for many years to come.

Peace, privacy, and stunning views - all thanks to nature!

Seclusion

  • 5 of 5
As a family of 5 we seldom have the opportunity to get away. So we plan our trips for seclusion (fishing, boating, jet skiing). This was the ultimate piece of Heaven that we have come across in a long time. The house was clean and well appointed. The view was breath taking. The ability to relax was all around us. They had one clock in the house (on the stove) which was the wrong time - NO ONE was even thinking about correcting it - it did not matter what time it was. It was a true bonding with the kids vacation! Almost forgot about the birding - magnificent!! Bill was very helpful and was a great person to work with. Would love to return next year, if timing permits.

Fabulous Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The preserve exceeded my expectations! The home was well equipped and furnished for an extended family with six young children. The bunk room was a real hit!
The property is beautiful and well designed with children in mind. They could play in the playhouse or build sand castles on the gorgeous beach. We arrived with bikes and kayaks in addition to the ones which come with the house and so at one point there were seven kayaks lined up on the beach. The Bay and adjacent Gaskin Pond are also great for fishing, crabbing, birding or even walking on the sand bar. We had frequent sightings of the resident Bald Eagle! And with the family science teacher I'm sure the children went home with much newly acquired knowledge.
Evenings were spent around the fire pit telling stories and roasting marshmallows. And on a cool evening there were books and puzzles to entertain us inside. There was no need to leave, there was so much to do right there.
Bill was always reachable and most helpful; he seems very concerned about the comfort of his guests.
We had a fabulous vacation and I can think of nothing I would have changed. We most certainly will try to return.

Great Vacation for a group of Friends!

  • 5 of 5
Our four families just returned from a fantastic week of relaxation and fun on "the Preserve." The kids loved exploring the property! There is a very private beach along the Chesapeake bay side of the property and an inlet that provided hours of fun kayaking and swimming. The water was extremely warm and very shallow in the inlet so the kids could easily wade almost everywhere. There were areas of silt that the children would sink into, but if you stayed towards the mouth of the inlet it was sandy. The 6 kayaks provided were used daily and we frequently saw bald eagles, osprey and heron. We also saw dolphins just a few feet offshore. The fisherman in our group unfortunately had no luck, but he had fun anyway. The house was very comfortable and we loved the screened in porches (upstairs and downstairs). The top deck was also a favorite spot. The design of the house allowed the cooks to feel like they were part of the action as the kitchen, dining room and living room were all in a great room with a wall of windows. The kitchen was well stocked, the bedrooms were spacious, the master bedroom was huge and there is an outdoor exposed shower that was perfect for rinsing off before coming inside. The house was clean and everything worked for us. The outdoors, the privacy and the view was the star here. The private beach had gentle waves and the kids could go out 40 feet from shore and still stand up, which made for a relaxing time on the beach. As far as the surrounding area, we explored a few wineries, but the towns are quite small (Kilmarnock is about 30 minutes away and seems to be the largest in the area). There is a Food Lion (we were pleasantly surprised by the selection - including beer and wine) about 25 minutes away and a small country store about 5 minutes away. Cell phone reception was poor for our plans (Verizon and Sprint) but we were able to get service at the end of out driveway. The WiFi in the house worked great. Bring bugspray (I seem to be a constant target no matter where I go) but others in our group had few problems.
We had a wonderful vacation and Bill was great to deal with, I would highly recommend this home.

Spectacular!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family (my husband and two kids under 10) and I just returned from a truly amazing weekend. We had never before stayed on such a beautiful, exquisite property and wow- what a treat! And it's only a short afternoon's drive from DC to get there.

Without even leaving the property we:
Kayaked, fished in both a freshwater and saltwater pond, hiked in the woods, went crabbing off the dock and played in the Chesapeake Bay surf on our own private, secluded sandy beach. We played basketball, croquet, horseshoes, and a wicked game of softball on the expansive front lawn.

At night we relaxed, drank wine, and listened to the waves against the shore. There's an upper level observation deck with lounge chairs so we could just sit back and look up at the stars. We even roasted s'mores at the Bay front fire pit, which is surrounded by Adirondack chairs.

We also went to the sweet little town of Reedville a few miles away for ice cream at Chitterchats. Soooo yummy!!! But for the most part we had everything we needed right there at the house because the owners have thought of everything.

All the rooms are lovely, with tasteful, fun decor and everything was extremely clean, including the well stocked kitchen complete with the tools needed for a crab feast. (Yes, did that too!)

My husband and I stayed in the gorgeous master suite that seriously has it's own wing! The kids loved the bunk beds.

When can we return? For two weeks next time!

amazed

  • 5 of 5
The preserve is the best kept secret in Virginia. My family loved it. Nobody wanted to leave. The house was wonderful. The views were amazing. If you love wildlife you'll love the preserve. There were wild turkey, otters, osprey, turtles, cranes, frogs ect. Grab some water shoes and have the time of your life. No crowds, no noise but nature. It surpassed our expectations. The oven didn't work. But I took outdoor stove, oven/smoker so it was no big deal. I prefer to cook outside anyway. We will rent again.

Exceeds expectations!

  • 5 of 5
It's not often that something is exactly how we imaged it to be and even more rare that it exceeds our expectations...The Preserve will not disappoint you on any level. From my inital contact with Bill he was more than available to answer any questions that I had. The property offers unmatched privacy and fantastic water views. If you enjoy nature, look no further you've found the right rental. I don't want to mention everything we saw during our week but here's a few.....dolphins, great blue herons, great egrets, night herons and there's even an osprey nest right out front. Bring your camera and plenty of food..you will find everything else you need, and much more, at The Preserve.

Thanks Bill, we will certainly be back.
