BEACHCOMBER I, FAMILY AND PET FRIENDLY 4 BDRM COTTAGE STEPS TO TOWN AND BEACH!

Colonial Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths (Sleeps 2 up to 10)

A family vacation to remember! House was newly renovated prior to becoming a vacation rental in 2011. In the winter of 2013; was added to the livingroom and dining room... our guests love the improvements we have made!; Our4 bedroom, 2 bath vacation home, is family and pet friendly; steps to the beach, shops and restaurants, please come and enjoy!!!

The beauty of the Beachcomber I is it is perfect for families and couples. The first floor bedroom and bathroom, give a couple looking to get-away great one-story living. If you have a family with you, the three bedrooms and one bath upstairs is great for family and friends.

The enjoyment of the Beachcomber isn't limited to the house. It has a fenced yard, great for children and pets. A kids clubhouse is in the backyard. Relax in the hammock under the holly tree, or read a book under the Magnolia Tree. Also we feature a gas grill and covered picnic area; great for crab picking! And just steps from the house are restaurants, shops, the beach, and fishing pier...be sure to get a soft serve ice cream at Nancy's or visit with Rocky across the street at Densons for great sandwiches and delicous hard scooped ice cream!

Colonial Beach, Virginia...the Gateway to the Northern Neck of Virginia.... a beach front haven, less than 2 hours from DC, along the Potomac River. Many say, it is place that time has forgotten with its slow pace, friendly people who wave as they drive past you on their golf carts, wide beaches where the Potomac River is 4 to 6 miles wide, within minutes to historical attractions; George Washington's Birthplace; the Lee Family Home, Stratford Plantation, explore Westmoreland State Park, and find Shark's teeth and more, great boating, fishing,crabbing, and discover the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail, Westmoreland Berry Farm. several great waterfront restaurants, waterfront live bands on weekends during the summer, great crabs. Just a quick hour away is Kings Dominion Theme Park; featuring great rides and waterpark.

Thanks for looking and be prepared to fall in love with Colonial Beach and the Northern Neck!

Colonial Beach is a along the Potomac River; 60 miles down river from Washington DC...so close, but a world away!

About Cathy Bokman

Cathy Bokman purchased this house in 2011

Why Cathy Bokman chose Colonial Beach

My husband George and I first discovered Colonial Beach on a day trip adventure from Chevy Chase, Maryland about 7 years ago. After several weekends, we bought a small cottage. Through the years, we have had lots of friends and family stay with us. All of them have fallen in love with the Town of Colonial Beach. Last summer my sister and George's brother started to look at houses; and together in February of this year; all three families joined together to buy this house built in 1940. All of us, with help of some great professionals have been working hard through a renovation to make it ready for guests this summer. We chose this house because of its great spaces, yard, and a location that is convenient to everything the beach has to offer.

The house with it all!

  • 5 of 5
This was a last-minute getaway for my niece's 8th birthday and the owner was really responsive and helpful when our other plans fell through last minute. And in hindsight, I'm glad they did. This home and our stay there was fantastic. We had two young kids in our group and they spent hours playing in the backyard and "clubhouse." We loved being so close to the beach and all of the restaurants (we love Denson's and High Tides), while still enjoying the small-town feel we've come to love in Colonial Beach. We had plenty of space to rest and relax and loved that the house was fully stocked with everything that we needed in the kitchen. You can tell that the owner really cares about this property and was responsive and friendly every step of the way. The only down-side was that we couldn't stay longer! We will definitely be back next summer!

FIRST FAMILY VACATION

  • 4 of 5
Took a chance to rent something not seen in person. However, the property was better than described. Expecting an older home, we were pleasantly surprised that the house looked newer than the photo. The inside was ideal and was expecting that old home musty smell. The interior was bright and fresh smelling.
The rooms were exactly as described and plenty of room for everyone without being on top of each other.

The beach was an easy walk except that the sand was a courser type than we were used to. I would recommend telling the guests to bring water shoes as the sand is course and there are some rocks in the swimming area.

Everything you need to make meals and cook is in the kitchen. The Grandkids loved the little clubhouse. And the back room is an added bonus for the kids to play the video games and not be in the way of everyone. They can spend time by themselves.

The town is small and not crowded. This leaves all the time to spend with the family and on the beach. No intimidation to go to the shopping malls or any other attractions as there are none in the immediate area.
We did make a day trip to the amusement park Kings Dominion which is an hour away. Not too far for everyone to travel. The park is terriffic..... Water Park and Thrill rides for the older kids.

I would not hesitate to recommend this to family, friends or anyone. The owner gave as much information we requested.

I could not have asked for anything more except if the house was right on the beach. We did not eat at any local restaurants as we cooked our meals in the house. We don't get together that often to eat all together. So this was a good change.

The process for reserving the property was straight forward and all my questions were answered up front. Thanks for Everything

Owner's Response: We are so glad we could host your first family vacation away with your kids and grandchildren. The house has played host to many families and like you, they all enjoy the space and the location. They, too, have often commented that without the distractions of a mall and active boardwalk; they spend more time together enjoying the area's history, cooking out, eating crabs, going to the beach; or just relaxing.

Thanks for staying and hope to see you again,

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I were in town for a dart tournament at the local Moose Lodge. There were 7 of us and we were all amazed at the space and comfortability of this house. It was like visiting a relatives home with all the amenities! It was within walking distance to all the fun stuff we wanted to do in addition to being only 5 minutes drive from the Moose Lodge. I'm planning on making my way back to Colonial Beach and will definitely try to check the availability on this house for all my future visits there.

Best Accomodations ever for our Large Family!

  • 5 of 5
Our family and another adult friend (our Alice :) ) vacationed here in late July. With 5 active children ages 10-17, we needed a place with plenty of room to have our own spaces. The Beachcomber offered that and so much more! Our kids loved the bikes and golf carts to get around the town. We felt safe letting them go the 2 blocks to the beach or down the road a few blocks to get ice cream. Most beach activities, shops, restaurants and more are walking distance from this home. It was perfectly clean and comfortable, and the owners were very attentive and responded quickly to our inquiries. We utilized all of the sleeping venues and all were comfortable and allowed us to get a good night's sleep to go about our fun the next day. Activities within 15-30 mins drive are RE Lee house. GW birthplace, golf, state park, and shopping for beach gear and groceries is only 10 mins away! We spent a day in Freerichsburg, about 30 mins away, and visited more historic places like Chatham House and battlefields. Wineries are 10 mins away by car, and Manassis is onlly about 1 hour. Absolutely perfect for short trips or to stay local. Many amenities and very friendly locals willing to assist if needed we chatted with a few really nice neighbors, too! We would go back in a heartbeat! Most relaxing and stress-free family vacation we have ever taken since we all had plenty of space. Do not hesitate to stay here!

Great Find

  • 5 of 5
We all enjoyed our week at the Beachcomber. With 4 adults and 2 children there was still plenty of room for us to all have our own space when needed. Everything was immaculate and there was everything we needed for our stay. The house was beautifully decorated. It was evident a lot of time and thought went into the choices throughout the house. It is a short walk to the beach and a few small shops. The High Tides restaurant on the beach was very good as well as the Dockside restaurant at the Marina and of course, Denson's Grocery with its made to order sandwiches is a must. Rocky, the owner, was very friendly and very helpful with questions we had about the area. Cathy, the Beachcombers owner was very friendly and heplful.
