Colonial Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom and 2 Bathrooms with bonus kids loft; sleeps 5 to 7 guests

The Beachcomber II enjoys a great in-town location....steps to the beach, restaurants, entertainment, and shops. We are family and pet friendly with a fenced yard and a fun playground just through the gate in the backyard.

The Beachcomber II features hardwood floors and soft relaxing colors throughout. You will pass under the dogwood trees through the front door and enter into the sunroom, into a large livingroom with cable television, pick your bedroom and get ready for family meals in the eat-in kitchen. Your choice of bedrooms is a sunny twin room with built-in-bookcases, a master bedroom, with queen bed and private bath or a queen size bedroom across from the second bathroom with clawfoot tub/shower. A bonus kids loft is upstairs with two twin beds, and window seat; we recommend it for for kids.

While enjoying your stay with us, we have provided an outdoor dining space under the trees with a gas grill. WIFI is provided.

Beachcomber II is a charming cottage, great for families, couples or girl's getaway. Last year we welcomed guests to the Beachcomber I on Hawthorne and so enjoyed giving guests a great place to relax and get-away. With the success of Beachcomber I, we bought this charming cottage, two blocks away on Wilder and are excited to be able to offer this for smaller groups this summer. We just completed the renovation with our first guests staying with us March 31st.The Beachcomber II; a 3 bedroom, 2 bath vacation cottage with kid's sleeping loft is steps to the beach, shops and restaurants...please come and enjoy!!!

The beauty of the Beachcomber is it is perfect for families and couples. The cottage features one floor living, unless you are a kid and want to escape to the kid's loft. We have a large fenced yard with a gate that opens to the town playground. We welcome well-behaved dogs; pet fee applies.

The enjoyment of the Beachcomber II isn't limited to the house. Along with the fenced yard; we feature a gas grill and outside dining under the trees, right outside the kitchen door. great for grilling out and 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, which you can see through the trees!

Colonial Beach, Virginia; 60 miles from DC,but a world away... 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 it's 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, and great crabs.

Spring and early summer is a beautiful time at the Beach, to enjoy a much quieter waterfront and explore the region's history and wineries!

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

About Cathy Bokman

My husband and I, who live and work in the DC area, fell in love with Colonial Beach on our first visit in 2005 and bought a weekend house shortly thereafter. Since graduating from George Mason University; I entered the hospitality business. Being a cottage owner is something I love. It enables me to improve and beautify properties and provide a nice place for people to enjoy their vacations.

Cathy Bokman purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Cathy Bokman chose Colonial Beach

In 2009 we bought our first vacation rental, Beachcomber I. That house was a partnership with my sister and my husband's brother; it was a total renovation. I found though that people really enjoyed themselves and discovering Colonial Beach and the area. A year later, a childhood friend that I grew up with in Wellesley, Massachusetts called when she found this listing on the internet. This house, which became Beachcomber II didn't need nearly the amount of work as our first project and had the same great location; steps from town and beach...so we jumped in and started the work....hope you enjoy!

What makes this cottage unique

Beachcomber II has a great location, or as guests tell me...it is a gem. I know they enjoy the location steps to town, beaches and a playground just through the back gate. Also it is mostly on one floor, except the kid's loft.

We just spent a week at Beachcomber II and could not ask for anything better in renting the cottage. Everything we needed was there and in great condition. Our little dog loved the freedom of the back yard. The owner was great and so easy to work with. There were (5) in our party and we had plenty of room to roam and a quiet corner in the sun room to read. I would highly recommend any of the Beachcomber rental homes. We will return next year.

Our stay at Beachcomber II could not have been more pleasant! The cottage had everything we needed and more - next time, I will know that I needn't bring so much kitchen stuff - it's already there! The cottage was beautiful - tastefully decorated with that "beachy" feel! We loved how convenient it was to everything in town. It was my first time staying at Colonial Beach and I'm in love! I want to come back and stay at Beachcomber II again and again!

Property was very clean and homey. Proximity to beach and the park next to the back yard was more than a mom with 5 kids could ask for. Thank you very much Cathy B. It was our first time ever renting a home and you made it beautiful!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad your family enjoyed their vacation! When we were remodeling the house, I thought to myself, what a great feature to be able to sit at the kitchen table and look out to the park to not only watch your own children play, but also to see any child's delight, playing at the park.

Hope we can see you again soon!

We made last minute arrangements with Cathy for our mini vacation at Beachcomber II with Cathy,s help. She was extremely nice to work with and she did everthing in her power help us get situated there.

My wife and I and our 2 Greatgrandchildren had a wonderful time on the beach and in the town of Colonial Beach.
My 2 Greatgranddaughters rode the 2 bicycles that were there all over town when they were not at the beach! My wife and I enjoyed visiting Presidents Washington and Monroes birth places. Itis a truly beautiful area! We all enjoyed the ice cream at Densons and at Nancys

We are already making plans for our next trip there,this time for a good bit longer

I stayed at the Beachcomber II for a little get away with my best friend and my 5 year old son. The house was spacious and clean with nice simple decorative touches. Everything was as listed and the area was just what we wanted. I would (and have) recommended this place to friends and will plan a return trip soon.

A vacation to remember! In 2011, we introduced the Beachcomber I, located on Hawthorne Ave. After great acceptance by visitors, we purchased a smaller vacation rental property two blocks away; Beachcomber II on Wilder to great guest reviews in 2012. The Beachcomber II; a 3 bedroom, 2 bath vacation home, steps to the beach, shops and restaurants...please come and enjoy!!!

The beauty of the Beachcomber II is it is perfect for families and couples. The Beachcomber II is offers one floor living with a bonus kids loft. The home features a a master bedroom with private bath, a queen size bedroom, and a twin sized bedroom; on the first floor.

The enjoyment of the Beachcomber isn't limited to the house. It has a fenced yard, great for children and pets. From the eat-in kitchen you can view one of the town's playgrounds; the back gate opens right to the park. There is a tree covered picnic table with gas grill. The location is terrific, steps to restaurants, entertainment, shops and just one block from the beach and bathhouse.

Colonial Beach, Virginia; 60 miles from DC,but a world away... 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 it's 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, bird watching and discover the Chesapeake Wine Trail. The charm of of Colonial Beach is its unhurried pace of a small town and the enjoyment of several great waterfront restaurants, waterfront live bands on weekends during the summer, assorted antique/consignment shops, art galleries,and great crabs.

We have learned from our guests that Colonial Beach is a great launch-off place to explore the history of the region. Our guests have made day trips to DC, Fredericksburg, Manassas, Charlottesville, Williamsburg; all under 2 hours away...what a tremendous history trail. Additionally, two great amusement parks are an easy drive; Kings Dominion (1 Hour) and Busch Gardens Old Country and Water Park (2 Hours).

While Summer is the peak season; Spring and Fall are great seasons to enjoy the Northern Neck. Summer has many events; the Potomac River Festival , Blues Festival 4th of July, and International Jet Ski Races.

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