Reedville House Rental Photos and Description
2 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 4 (guest house avail @ additional rate sleeps 2)

This breathtaking, custom-built, luxury home boasts wall-to-wall sliding glass doors on the main floor that overlook the mouth of the Potomac as it opens into the Chesapeake Bay. The home is designed to give the illusion of sitting on a boat or ship on the water when enjoying the main floor.

Warm yourself with the white marble framed fireplace this Fall and Winter. The third story or cupola offers a 360 degree view of the river, bay, creek and quiet countryside that leads up to the property. Fall foliage colors lay beneath you as far as the eye can see. Eagles often rest in the large, towering trees next to the house with an eye-to-eye view of them.

The estate is surrounded by a 8 foot privacy fence creating a sense that you’re the only one on the water while staying here. Over 300 feet of shoreline surround the property offering you never ending WATERFRONT VIEWS of the beautiful Potomac River and the large ships that cross the horizon on the Chesapeake Bay.

Home is decorated with fine quality furniture, antiques, and appointments. More details below photos.

Fall and Winter Seasons: Quiet walks along the beach as well as sunny hamlets hidden from the winds offer great reading and resting opportunities with first row seating for Eagle, Osprey and Blue Heron watching.

This room offers two reading areas overlooking different views of the water and surrounding scenes as well as a spacious walk-in closet/dressing room.

The master bath offers a spacious waterfall shower, massage shower heads and shower bench with his/her vanities.

The 2nd bedroom is located on the main floor next to its own bathroom & has a full size bed. Views of the Bay greet you as you wake with your own private sliding door access to the screened-in porch.

Matthew is a native Virginian whose family have loved and enjoyed the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay his whole life. Lachelle grew up in the Midwest on the plains, kayaking, canoeing, and enjoying water-sports on the rivers and lakes that weave their way through Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri.

We were stunned when we pulled up into the drive the first time to see 711 Marshalls Beach Road. The wind was strong, whitecaps rolled across the mouth of the river. (Lachelle felt right at home, as if she was back on the windy plains in Iowa.) As we entered the garden gate, we were stunned. No one could have prepared us for the expansive, break-taking view of the Chesapeake Bay that greeted us as we entered the courtyard.

Our home is the only home on Marshalls Beach that is rented. You are surrounded by Richmond and Northern Virginia families who have traveled here every weekend through the summer for as many as seven generations. Southern hospitality abounds.

The design of the home is the greatest feedback we receive. Every local contractor, builder, real estate agent or neighbor who visits us at the house are floored -- completely awestruck by the property. Many of these folks grew up on the Bay and River or have lived/worked the properties there for years. We think that says it all.

A relaxing weekend getaway close to DC

We were looking for a quiet weekend getaway that was a short drive away from our home in the DC area, and this place was perfect. When we arrived, we sat down in the rocking chairs on the screened-in porch and enjoyed the breeze from the Bay. That and a glass of wine helped us immediately feel relaxed :) The views of the water through the wall-to-wall windows were always amazing! We saw a bald eagle flying by the windows as we were in the kitchen, which was awesome to see up close. We will be back.

The house is very pleasant and very well fitted , the place is gorgeous, the neighborhood very friendly. We have really appreciated our stay in Lachel's place, well located for those who enjoy History, seashore and quietness. We will come back for sure. A very nice place for family holidays and a romantic house for couples.

Coffee and sunrises over water, naps in the breeze on the screened porch, walks along the beach and creek, tying flies in the cupola for the next day's fishing, cool Belgian ales at sunset, stars at night. Oh the joys of retirement ... even if it was just pretending for a few days ... it was well worth it, and this place is perfect for it. The owner is gracious and accommodating beyond expectations. The house is fresh, bright, clean, and thoughtfully provisioned in excess. If you need to get away and heal your brain from the rat race, or just want a leisurely rest, you will not be disappointed.

Gorgeous views in a very private setting

We stayed at this gorgeous home over New Year’s weekend for a quiet getaway. The home is absolutely lovely; the pictures do not do it justice. Located at the end of a very secluded road, the home provides extensive privacy and quiet seclusion. There are 3 stories to the house, each one with ample windows with fantastic views of the river, the bay, and a tiny creek that meets the river next to the house. Each body of water provides lovely views and interesting wildlife to observe. The cupola on the 3rd floor is perfect. We had breakfast there every morning, and one morning a bald eagle landed in the tree right outside the window. Overall the house is very comfortable and includes everything you could want or need. It was a very relaxing and peaceful place to stay.

My partner and I have stayed at this property several times. It is truly the ultimate in relaxation, we didn't want to leave! The house itself is clean, well-maintained, and gorgeous. It's open and airy, with awesome views from pretty much everywhere. The bedroom in the guest house has wide windows on all sides and is amazing to wake up in. The amenities are top notch: well appointed kitchen, big screen tv, comfy furniture, even a grand piano! The location is incredible too: totally private, very quiet, and the neighbors are extremely friendly but not invasive. We enjoyed kayaking in the nearby channel, hanging out on the beach, having cocktails in every location imaginable, and enjoying nature. TONS of wildlife to enjoy!
If you want to venture out for the day, there are lots of cute little antique shops close by. And of course tons of great seafood!
The owners are really good people, a pleasure to work with. I would (and have) recommended this as a getaway vacation for anyone.

I loved staying at this house! It is tucked away on a corner lot with water on two sides and windows all around. It almost feels like you are on a boat (without the sea-sickness) since everywhere you look there is peaceful water. There are a ton of little nooks and crannies to relax with a good book or just take a nap in the sun - one of the decks or balconies, in the cupola, in the sunroom or on the nearby private beach. The space is warm and open with a beautiful kitchen for making a meal, an enormous master bedroom and of course, the guest house to keep friends close but still private. This is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and just relax.
