This cabin has been in my family since 1941. It was being built by my grandfather and his 3 sons(my father was 7 at the time) when Pearl Harbor was being bombed. So it has a lot of memories in it for my family. My husband and I bought it from my 2 uncles in 1991 and now share 2/3 ownership with my dad. We have refurbished it and updated it without taking away the beautiful memories of the history. You can still see the handprints on the A- frame wood ceiling from where they had to place each piece.

This cabin means a lot to me and my family and we look forward to sharing it with you!

We were looking for a relaxing waterfront getaway that was quiet, yet still had nearby activities. This place was perfect!! We spent part of each day exploring the area, but returned in the afternoon to enjoy the beach here, and spend time on the porch watching boats and the birds. Caught a few fish too!!
Thank you for a lovely stay.

Thank you for having us at your cabin for our weekend getaway. The sunsets were beautiful while we relaxed on the beach. We also took a nice sailing cruise on the river aboard the Schooner Alliance. Sleeping in was definitely the best. Thanks again.

First thank you for allowing others to enjoy this fantastic property. You are very accommodating and friendly. Everything was neat and we had all that was needed for a lovely stay. The cabin was spacious and unique. The views and beach gives the best gift of all to expand your mind....loved it! The location is close to everything, grocery, post office, fitness center, but being at the end of the road and across from the park felt very private. Being right on the point of were the battles took place was amazing and learning our history made me understand so much. Loved Yorktown Pub and that whole scene directly across the river. I was so impressed!! We would return.
