THE ULTIMATE CHESAPEAKE BAY EXPERIENCE!

Reedville Estate Rental Photos and Description

110 Acres, 1000 Ft Of Private Bay-Front Beach, 3000+ Ft Of Lakefront Shoreline

Our 110 acre sanctuary is a peninsula with the Chesapeake Bay to our east and private lakes to our north and south. It features an incredible 1000 feet of private Bay-front beach and over 3000 feet of pristine inner-coastal shoreline - overall, boasting nearly a mile of private, water-front property!

Here, nature is your only neighbor. White sandy beaches, a cozy lagoon, a giant sand dune, and an immense forest provide the perfect habitat for all kinds of wildlife - and lots of family fun. Swim, kayak, hike, bike, fish, catch crabs - explore nature at its best - all on our property! Enjoy a deluxe kids' play set, basketball, volleyball, horseshoes, and many more outdoor and indoor games too.

Spread out in our stunning and spacious 4100 sq. ft. home. Designed by renowned architect, Jim Glave, it enhances your experience with an open floor plan and panoramic views of the Bay. A large screened porch directly off of the kitchen is perfect for dining, entertaining, and relaxing. A rooftop deck provides dramatic and unique views. 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths accommodate up to 14 people. The first floor master suite is extraordinary with a central sky dome, sitting nooks, built-ins, and a lavish bathroom with a separate vanity, two sinks, walk-in shower, and Jacuzzi tub.

Explore our community. Historic Reedville, once considered one of the wealthiest towns in America, has 19th century mansions that will astound you. A fisherman's museum, antique shops, fine restaurants, wineries, and challenging golf courses are also popular attractions.

Come for the peace and privacy. Leave with a better perspective. The Preserve is the perfect Chesapeake Bay experience!

Note: We own another rental property on the Bay (VRBO#399839). We've rented it for 2 years and had many satisfied guests and positive reviews.

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!

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.

GREAT TIME

  • 5 of 5
This was an amazing "get-away." The house is gorgeous and very roomy. The view of the Bay is phenomenal. Enjoyed kayaking, laying on the beach, walking the beach, and sitting by the bonfire roasting marshmallows (yum). The house was clean and equipped with every thing you could need. The owner was EXTREMELY helpful and VERY courteous! The ONLY suggestion would be to maybe update kitchen appliances (stove wouldn't work but no biggie....we used the grill and that makes the food taste better). I would HIGHLY recommend this location to anyone!

Owner's Response: We're so glad you had a good time, particularly enjoying our large beach. Very sorry about the stove not working. Upgrading our kitchen appliances is on our "to do" list, but everything was functioning fine last time we checked.

RARE SECLUSION ON THE BAY

  • 5 of 5
What a property. My family of five rents a house each year for Memorial Day, along with three of my friends and their families. We had a total of 7 adults and 7 children. We have rented several properties at various locations on the Bay in the past, and never before have we stood at the waterfront and looked left and right and not seen another house or person. This property is immense, and the views are breathtaking. With small children, we spent most of our outdoor time back in the saltwater lake that has a protected beach. The kids loved paddling around on the kayaks, playing in the sand, and swimming in the calm water. My buddy had his 17' Scout which he launched at the public boat ramp 2 miles away, and kept tied to the pier on the property back in the south lake. He had to bring it in and out at high tide, but we had a great time on that boat fishing and taking the kids for rides. The house itself has a very unique design. The bedrooms fit everyone in our party comfortably, and the kitchen/family room is spacious and functional. We particularly enjoyed the glass doors that line the entire back of the house (facing the water), that allowed wonderful views of the water from the house. There is also a screened porch where we spent several hours reading and enjoying the view and sounds of the water on the beach. At night, we headed for the fire pit and Adirondack chairs out next to the waterfront. The kids did smores and we all enjoyed ourselves well into each night.
The only negative that we experienced were the bugs. They weren't bad during the day, but in the evening they came out in force. Bug spray did a fair job at keeping them away, and usually there is a breeze which helps a lot. I talked with the owner after our stay and he has hired a professional to come and spray the yard and woods surrounding the house, which should take care of the issue.

I should also point out that the owners were very responsive. We had a couple of minor issues during our stay, like how to get the DVD working, and they were available immediately by phone and helped us work through the problem.

If you are looking to "get away from it all", as we were, then this place is tough to beat. It is rare indeed to be on a waterfront property on the Chesapeake Bay and not be able to see any other houses around you. Everyone in our party had such a wonderful experience, and we look forward to returning here in the future.
