Overview

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 2 other rental properties on the Bay (VRBO#399839 and #644192). We've rented for 3 years and had many satisfied guests and positive reviews.

About Bill

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

Why Bill chose Reedville

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.

What makes this estate unique

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

Great Property, Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We're a group of fisherman who have been coming down to the Northern Neck every year since 1975, and this was by far the best house we've ever rented! The property is amazing -- a beautiful location on the water, incredibly scenic, and huge. The house is spacious, laid out well for a larger group, and very comfortable. Outside, our favorite area was down by the bay, sitting in the comfortable chairs around the fire pit, sipping some wine, and watching the wildlife all around us -- ospreys, blue herons, cormorants, and geese. If you're looking for a private, quiet vacation spot with lots to do, you can't beat this sanctuary on the Chesapeake Bay in Reedville, Virginia.

Great Holiday Gettaway!

  • 5 of 5

The view from windows steal the show at this house! We stayed at the home over the Thanksgiving Holiday and it was fabulous. I was able to cook a traditional feast with all of the trimmings! I did make some items before leaving home such as the from scratch pies and rolls but cooked everything else on sight. The house is clean and well decorated. The private beach is filled with hidden treasures such as sea glass and antiques that have washed up on shore. My daughter found an antique ceramic jug with a few barnacles for added character! We roasted hotdogs and marshmallows in the fire pit. We enjoyed the beautiful sunrises every morning. I highly recommend this property.

Breathtaking Property, truly perfect for all crowds

  • 5 of 5

I normally don't write reviews but had to in this case. This house is simply extraordinary. The pictures (although enticing) still do not give it justice. The interior of the house is gorgeous, it hits you immediately that the architect was of extremely high quality, it is very welcoming and open, while still being cozy and functional. There were enough beds for everyone, all utilities/furnishings were modern, the kitchen was big and clean with many pots/pans and cutting boards to feed 10 people. There is a great screened in porch room that doubled as a the perfect poker table setup. The decks around the house were the perfect width, not pretentiously large but spacious enough to be comfortable...

This leads into the outdoor property. First, the architect/home owners have great flood lights that beam from underneath the porch (not from the trees) so the lights do not blind you but illuminate a nice portion of the yard, enough to throw horseshoes at night. Second, the landscaping is perfect. Enough trees are left standing to feel like you are wooded, and you are protected from the sun if you so desire, but yet you're right on the ocean! Perfect. The firepit simply can not be beat, and I have a high standard for firepits. It looks right out onto the ocean, serene and perfectly situated for story telling and cocktails. The garage full of games, kayaks and bikes was fantastic, we used all of them.

Perhaps the highlight of the property is the private sandbar. It is only 90 second walk from the backdoor of the house, a gorgeous fun walk along the beach and through very minor brush. IT IS A PARADISE. The sandbar extends out and allows for sports, sunbathing, generally great times. The water surrounding the sanddune is knee high, with hard sand bottoms, perfect for lounging and laughing in the water.

Obviously I'm a huge fan of this house, I will definitely be going back there. I applaud the home owners for their unique blend of style, comfort, practicality, and resourcefulness. I have dreamed of a house like this, it was a pleasure to see it come to life.

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.
