GET-A-WAY RIVER HOUSE

Gloucester House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Are you looking for a convenient and comfortable beach getaway? To get here it only takes us a few minutes from Williamsburg and there are no tunnels and the Colonial Parkway rarely has any road rage drivers or traffic jams like those found on the interstate or 158 to Nags Head.

Whether you like to play on the sand beach, bask in the sun, sit in a swing, lay in a hammock, go crabbing, fishing, or boating, or curl up with a good book or sack out with a good movie, Getaway has it all.

Gloucester is still a community that feels like a small town, much like Nags Head in the early 80's, with lots of local shops and local restaurants, but still has some nice franchises and chain restaurants if you are not but so adventurous.

Traditionally rented by the week, we can make special arrangements for a weekend or split week. Do you have family coming to town? Why not put them up here?

I was born and raised in Williamsburg, Virginia. Married my beautiful wife Lisa and we have three great kids who enjoy canoeing & kayaking on the river.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

I chose to buy this vacation home because of its proximity to Williamsburg. It is close enough for a quick drive and just far enough to feel like you are really getting away. Growing up in Williamsburg we often traveled to Virginia Beach or the Outer Banks of North Carolina for vacation. Now a lovely drive on the Colonial Parkway over the Coleman Bridge and we are there without the headache of a long traffic filled road trip.

My family loves to spend a day on the river kayaking, canoeing and lounging on the sandy beach. After a full day on the river we enjoy cooking out with friends, and maybe playing some volley ball or horse shoes. It is so laid back and relaxing for all of us. We Love the hammock and swing.

GREAT VACATION STAY

  • 5 of 5
The house was the perfect base for my daughter's wedding at Gloucester Point. We had family from Texas, Alabama and Pennsylvania who were all able to stay in comfort. The house is clean, roomy and has lots of amenities. We enjoyed the canoe several times. The kids had a great time exploring the house and looking for seashells on the beach. The only drawback was that the water in the bathrooms smelled like sulfur, especially in the master suite.

PERFECT GET-A-WAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time, but were so busy with other activities (Busch Gardens, Water Country, Living History Museum, etc) we didn't get to thoroughly enjoy huge yard and amazing views at the Get-A-Way River house. The property is well equipped and comfortable, the back yard is massive, and the beach area is a nice bonus. We will be back!

GREAT PLACE TO MEET

  • 5 of 5
Several family members from different states rented the house to attend a family reunion in Gloucester, 10 miles away. It is a perfect location. We were blessed with great weather so the kids could play on the little beach and in the yard. There were yard toys and an air hockey game in the garage that the kids enjoyed

The kitchen is great. I especially appreciated the separate ice machine which had a workout. There were plenty of plates,especially plastic for kids. Only one glass wineglass so it was mine!
The owners are making major improvements in the house. You can tell by the new carpeting throughout and the large TV's in the various rooms. Also a great radio in the kitchen. Great maps on the wall of the area and a neat globe in the living room(geographer's dream)

My husband and I had the master bedroom and it was great. I felt guilty it was so spacious and comfortable. The bed and furniture in the master bedroom are really nice.

I only have two recommendations. I hope the next improvement will be with the mattresses upstairs. For kids they are fine but the adults need something firmer. There is a cleaning service but they skimped a bit in the kitchen. The rest of the house was spotless. The owners may want to check once in a while to make sure they are getting their money's worth. I called the owner about trash removal and he solved our problem immediately and was glad I called. I highly recommend this house and look forward to coming again someday. If two or three couples came there could be a fight over who got the master bedroom.
We ate at Tony and Melina's--We also ate at Sals Pizzeria. Would recommend both.

LOVED IT! WISH WE COULD HAVE STAYED LONGER!

  • 5 of 5
We were having trouble finding a house that could accommodate two families with very specific requirements. The Getaway gave us everything we needed, plus everything we wanted and lots we didn't even realize we wanted - all in a roomy, lovely, comfortable house! The kids loved the large yard and beach, as well as the kites, balls, lawn games, and air hockey table; we just wish we had more time to enjoy the hammock, swing, canoe, and basketball hoop!

Most every room has a great view of the river, and the house is very clean and well maintained. The owner was helpful, friendly, and extremely responsive. We would love to return to The Getaway and will definitely be recommending it to our friends and family!

GREAT FOR KIDS

  • 5 of 5
We just finished our second stay here. The house and location are great and could not be more kid-friendly. I love the semi-detached playroom area and the cozy sunroom. Our two-year-old son loved the bunk beds, the beach and the river traffic.

BEAUTIFUL SETTING AND VERY RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from "Get-a-way". The accommodations are very nice, especially the master suite! Everything you could possibly need has been provided, all in good working order. The view of the river from the lawn is beautiful. The house is located in a very quiet area, which is great for "getting away from it all".
We dined locally at Tony & Milena's, very good Italian food. You can see Yorktown from the small beach at the house, and it's a 20 minutes drive, just over the bridge.
