When I was 27 years old, I decided to sell real estate. Shortly after at the age of 29, I decided to open my own brokerage, Southern Trade Realty (Oct. 2006 so you do the math to see how old I am now)! I quickly learned to combine my passion for designing, creating and decorating to another level. I started to invest in real estate at a very young age, and I am still very passionate about it. I really enjoy getting to know my guests and proud to say I now have repeat business. I concentrate on making sure my guests are happy and I take pride in the comfort of my properties and of course, the decor has to be just right. Feel free to call me Shannon 804-815-1912.

Shannon French purchased this cottage in 2010

This area is where I personally grew up. I remember the days on the river at a very young age. I fished, crabbed, learned how to swim, relax, kayak, explore and I am still enjoying all of this today with my family and friends.

Pictures cannot even describe this property (many of our guests say this once they arrive). It is one of the most serene places to be. Listening to the waves crash up against the rocks at night, taking a nap in the hammock on a warm summer afternoon, to watching the Osprey on the river, there is not a better place to enjoy nature at it's best. It is all at your fingertips.

It was everything that was described in the VRBO listing and more. I was looking for a small place in a tranquil setting on the water not far from Richmond as the trip was a surprise birthday getaway. This home did not disappoint. It is beautifully decorated yet cozy and warmly inviting and the master suite and bath are to die for.
It was wonderful to see both sunrises and sunsets over Mobjack Bay and the river from all the windows in the main living area and the master upstairs. The home looked exactly like the photos and suited us perfectly as we specifically planned to stay in, relax, read and shoot photography of the water, coast and foliage. The furnishings are lovely and as we planned to cook our meals the awesome kitchen was part of the reason I chose this house.
We will be recommending it to everyone and definitely going back. Thank you so much Shannon.

Refresh my Soul

  • Submitted: Mar 26, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
I knew when I turned off Hwy 14 onto Ware Neck Road and drove along that beautiful road lined with trees and fields of changing colors something very special awaited me. Indeed it did! "Clearview" has been the perfect respite to catch my breath after a very busy year and refresh my soul. Didnt have any idea I'd be riding out Hurricane Sandy during my stay but felt very snug and safe here. Im so appreciative of you for providing such a lovely spot to rest, write, reflect and get inspired. Youve thought of every sweet detail and Ive felt so pampered in this elegant retreat. I never doubted that I could call on you should any need arise. Thanks so much and all the best.

This place "rocked my world"! This is my first vacation to the east coast and it was wonderful. We were married 2 weeks ago and this was the perfect house for our honeymoon. When I flipped on the light upstairs I was instantly in love- what a bedroom!

Most lovely rental!

  • Submitted: Mar 26, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
Just wanted to thank you for allowing us to stay at what has to be one of the most lovely VRBO rentals we've ever had the pleasure of visiting. We had a wonderful time just soaking up the serenity and restig from our tours of Yorktown, Jamestoen & Williamsburg. Friday, its on to Fredricksburg for us! We did eat at the Wild Rabbit Cafe and loved the food. We were lucky enough to have Friday night dinner at the Courthouse. Loved both properties! And we wouldn't want to have missed the cute store, either. Thanks again- such a delight!

Leaving is bittersweet

  • Submitted: Mar 26, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
Where to start! Your cottage was more than I ever expected. We needed a place to get away from the world and you provided that and more. Leaving is bittersweet as I do not want to leave the serenity, peace, quiet, solitude and wonder of nature however, we miss home. There is no doubt we will be back on a regular basis- God bless you and your family as you truly were a life saver for us.

Home away from home

  • Submitted: Mar 26, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
Our family greatly appreciated our stay here at the cottage. As we franticly searched for a home to stay in on our last minute vacation plans, I found this lovely home in proximity to all the attractions we wished to visit: Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown and Virginia Beach. We were not disapointed. We love everything about this place! The #1 reason I chose this lovely cottage was the use of kayaks and a canoe to explore the bay as well as use of early morning fishing for my husband. It truely felt like a home away from home. This home is the best place we have ever stayed and I hope we can return next year! I know each of us in the family enjoyed something different during our stay. My favorite part was simply the view from all the amazing windows and hearing the waves crash against the rocks at night. My husband loved fishing every morning and evening. My son enjoyed sitting on the screened porch and enjoying the breeze. My daughter enjoyed kayaking in the bay and racing her brother and winning the kayak race. All in all this "cottage" is amazing!
