Come vacation in a beautiful waterfront setting! Mill Hill is a spacious riverfront estate dating back more than two centuries -- but with every modern convenience. With room for all, and every amenity you could desire -- including a chef's kitchen, water view side porch, porch swing, canoe dock, boat ramp, and gas fireplace -- Mill Hill is a great place for a family, a group of friends, or a couple to vacation. Crab or fish from the dock, swim, canoe, watch for osprey, or just just relax with a good book and your favorite beverage. Located in the heart of Tidewater in an area known locally as 'land of the life worth living,' you could spend days just enjoying this lovely property. However, if you can bear to tear yourself away -- you are within minutes of some of America's finest historic sights -- Jamestown, Yorktown and Williamsburg -- as well as fine elegant and casual dining, extraordinary antiquing and other great shopping, and a wide variety of water sports. Groups larger than 6 may wish to rent the one-BR cottage on the property as well (listing 3021375).
Few places are more beautiful -- or more historic -- than Gloucester County. Nestled in the heart of Tidewater Virginia, Gloucester County was once home to the Powhatan Tribe and Pocahontas, as well as notable colonial families such as George Washington's ancestors. The site of countless waterways and five broad rivers, including the North River on the banks of which 'Mill Hill' resides, Gloucester is a haven for sailing, canoeing, kayaking, and other water sports -- as well as dining on mouthwatering shellfish and other culinary delicacies. Just an hour from Richmond and 2 1/2 hours from Washington, DC, Gloucester is a great base for exploring all of the wonders of the Middle Peninsula of Virginia These include not only Gloucester's own historic courthouse circle, beautiful colonial Ware Church and Abingdon Church, and history museums, but also the charming arts community of Mathews just up Route 14 with its well-known lighthouse and sand beaches, and of course the world-renowned attractions of Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown and the College of William and Mary down Route 17 and across the York River.
We were in awe when we arrived at your beautiful place! It is charming and perfect for our family of six. My 7-year-old son said today was his best day ever. Thank you for the sweet touches. The fresh flowers were wonderful. We had the best time here!
My adult niece and I recently had the pleasure of staying at Mill Hill. I love, love, loved my time there. Mill Hill is a dream from colonial times fully updated for the 21st century. A long winding entrance lined by daffodils leads to a pretty white house on the banks of a river. The grounds include magnificient magnolias, camellias, a boxwood garden, and a rose garden. Inside the house, there are many authentic touches, (old ornamental fireplaces, wide plank wood floors, and hand-forged door hardware). But best of all, there were views of the river and the creek from many windows. All of the rooms were beautifully furnished. The master bedroom on the main floor where I slept was both accessible and extremely comfortable. Kitchen appliances and bathrooms are up-to-date and in excellent order. Ditto for the wonderful gas fireplace in the River Room. It was a cozy scene as we read, listened to our favorite CDs and watched a very light snow fall outside the huge windows overlooking the water. (There is a large TV in the River Room, duly equipped with DISH channels, but we opted for the serenity of music.) On the grounds there is also a charming one-bedroom guesthouse - all fully outfitted. (Although we did not need any extra space since the house alone is 3,000 square feet, I can imagine that a large family group might want to rent the house or cottage.) Also, nearby is a boathouse and a large barn. Have I mentioned the air? It's pure and sweet. Ten minutes from the house is the charming historic town of Gloucester Courthouse. Among the restaurants we sampled was Jessica's On Main where we enjoyed a grilled chicken and garden salad with huge chunks of freshly cooked chicken, potato leek soup, homemade bread, and divine desserts (black-bottom New York cheesecake & Keylime pie!!) all made right there. I can't wait to go back to Mill Hill in the summertime with the rest of the family!
I have stayed at Mill Hill on two separate occasions and it is truly a special place. The setting on a small peninsula virtually surrounded by the river and creek is just lovely and very private, and the sunsets breathtakingly beautiful. Accomodations at Mill Hill are luxury class and the main house is historically accurate while completely comfortable. Outstanding décor and large, outfitted chef's kitchen. We especially enjoyed dining on the porch and champagne at sunset on the dock. Mill Hill is perfect for a family retreat or a "gal pals" long weekend. I can't wait to go back!
