HISTORIC COTTAGE ON WARE RIVER ESTATE

Gloucester Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cozy one bedroom cottage on riverfront property on lovely Ware Neck.

Come and spend your vacation in this quiet, peaceful setting on the Ware River. The estate boasts 290 ft of shoreline. This charming and historic 2 story cottage sits on 7 acres located on the Ware Neck Peninsula. The cottage has hand hewn post and beam construction dating to approximately the 1790s. There are fireplaces in both the living room and bedroom. There are ceiling fans in the bedroom and on the front porch. Just in front of the cottage is the restored icehouse built in the late 18th century and used to store blocks of ice brought from up north by steamboats down the Chesapeake Bay. The water front is a short stroll and has a pier with a floating dock. This is a perfect spot for watching beautiful sunsets while enjoying a glass of wine, fishing, crabbing or launching your canoe or kayak. The Cottage is 70 min from Richmond or Norfolk, 2 hours from DC, 45 min from Williamsburg, 30 min from Yorktown and 20 minutes to the Arts community of Matthews. It provides a great home base for exploring this beautiful and diverse region of Virginia.

The Great Escape

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have rented quite a few properties from this website, both in the States and in Europe. This is by far one of the best places we've stayed! The owners maintain the expansive land beautifully and are very accommodating. The cottage is neat and clean, and its decor is serene and encourages relaxation. We had access to the dock and the owners allowed us to use their gear to fish and to catch crabs, which we cooked for dinner. Our son had a wonderful time running around the entire property and hanging out on the front porch swing. Our best friends, who are a couple, live in Virginia and they had a great time visiting for BBQs and evenings on the dock. The property and the owners are just wonderful. A perfect escape from the noise of NYC.

Can I just say wow?!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so.much for your hospitality. Words don't describe this place. Everything is beautiful and around 7 each night, the water was smooth as glass. Being a teacher, I really appreciate the quiet and being able to relax. Met the neighbor who is growing this huge pumpkin, the butterflies were loving the zinnias. I cant believe Brent and Beckys bulbs is right down the road. I order from them every fall. Everything you've done here is perfect. Thank you so much. I tried it for 5 days but next time I'm gonna do a week.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed the property and look forward to having you again. The cottage is also a cozy retreat during the winter. We sometimes have whistling swans on the river during their migration over the coldest months of winter.

Escaping everyday life, going "Off the Grid"

Escaping everyday life, going "Off the Grid"
  • 5 of 5
The driveway must be at least a half mile long, displaying some massive oak trees and the occasional deer, turkey, or bunny.

The cottage sits on a perfectly manicured lawn with gardens, a variety of trees, flowering plants, and a few of the biggest magnolia trees I've ever seen (which were blooming with huge and fragrant flowers).

The cottage itself was very clean, well equipped, and well restored, with a beautiful wood floor and aged beams on the ceiling.

We left the property for a few adventures, like visiting Nuttall's Country Store, eating at a few excellent nearby restaurants, driving to Jamestown, and going to A Chef's Kitchen in Williamsburg for an unforgettable and entertaining meal.

We spent much of our time out on the dock and in the SUN! We enjoyed kicking around in my kayak and doing some fishing too. The few times it rained were just reminders to get back inside for a sandwich, a beer, or to just sit down and read in the coziness of the living room.

Though I could check my email on my phone, I chose not to for a week, and it was nice to put everything else aside for a bit and truly unwind.

We enjoyed meeting and chatting with John and Peg, and were very impressed with what they have created here. Everything about the cottage and the surrounding grounds was tidy, artful, and well maintained.

We found it so relaxing to experience the sights and sounds of the river, especially in this very private and lush setting. We enjoyed some wine, fruit, and cheese on the dock under a nearly full moon one evening, and it was fantastic!

We felt like the cottage was the perfect place to decompress, unplug, and just be with ourselves. Halfway through the week, we were already talking about "our next trip" to the cottage.

We enjoyed the quiet and privacy, as well as the fresh air as we sat and watched the birds. A clean, cozy cottage with interesting history. Lovely spot off the beaten track.

Peg and John were great hosts. The cottage and property is exactly like the pictures and so much more! The cottage is located close to town but far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet. Gorgeous estate and beautiful place to stay!

Owner's Response: We also love the fact that the cottage feels very "away from it all" , while at the same time it is very close to the town of Gloucester and also close to Matthews.

Happy Customer

  • 5 of 5
My stay at this immaculate cottage was delightful. The cottage was well-maintained, wonderfully decorated, and a quiet peaceful retreat. Everything I needed was available. It was wonderful to wake of a morning to the singing of birds and the well-kept grounds. The cottage is only a few minutes from Gloucester Courthouse with its many unique shops and restaurants. A few more minutes gets you to historic Yorktown and Williamsburg. There is also a charming " take-you-back-to-your-childhood" country store just down the road from the cottage where you can browse and enjoy a delicious lunch. I would definitely recommend this cottage to a friend or relative as the perfect, relaxing getaway.
