Overview

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.

Wonderful restoration and location

  • 5 of 5
We love staying at the 18th-century dependency. The cottage was renovated beautifully. We loved seeing the old beams and the marks of the handtools. The dock is lovely. But the old icehouse is a wonder. And the thoughtful books of plantation history provided us with evenings of entertainment. Great local recommendations. And just down the street from Brent and Becky's bulbs! We can't wait to come back.

a wonderful respite

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from 3 days at the cottage at Glebefield. It is a wonderfully renovated space, with relaxing and pretty grounds and access to the dock and water. John and Peg are wonderful and generous hosts were helpful with information and advice. Our time was relaxing, restful, and quiet. We plan to return.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This place was incredible! Had an amazing girls weekend! So unbelievably beautiful and relaxing. The amenities were awesome and the cottage was extremely well decorated, quaint but delightful. The views of the Chesapeake from the private pier were stunning and the estate was simply gorgeous. Gloucester itself was nothing much but discovered The Farmer's Daughter(an AWESOME farmer's market a few miles out). Plus Yorktown beach is only about 20 miles away. I will definitely be back!!

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.
