Williamsburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description
3 BR, 1 BA, Sleeps 5

NOTE: Weekly Rate is for 6 nights as well as 7 nights, not by night as quoted on the 'Instant Quote.'

Our waterfront beach cottage sits on a bluff overlooking the James River and Jamestown Island, with steps down to your private beach. The free ferry across the river to Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown is 1.6 miles from the cottage. It runs every 30 minutes during the day until 9 p.m. when it runs every hour during the night. The land that our cottage is on was originally part of the Pleasant Point Plantation. Watch spectacular sunrises over the river from the deck or the front porch. You can take a ride in one of our two kayaks or row boat we have for your use (life preservers provided). After enjoying a day of history in Jamestown, Williamsburg, or Yorktown, having fun at Busch Gardens and Water Country, playing a round of golf at one of the many golf courses, shopping in Historic Williamsburg and the outlets, or enjoying some of the other attractions Virginia has to offer, come back to relax on the 'rivah' in the privacy of your cottage. Sometimes just sitting quietly watching the movement of the water, a tug boat going by, or eagles and ospreys fishing is just what is needed after a busy day. The moon coming up over the river is as beautiful as the sunrise.

Our cottage is in a neighborhood where there are no other rental cottages, only cottages used by their owners. There are no houses behind the cottages, only fields and woods. Once you leave the paved road, you are 0.3 mile down a dirt lane from the start of a perfect vacation. You will not hear any traffic noise. The view of the river is wide open (about a mile to the left is the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry and to the right is Cobham Bay).

Our cottage has a fully equipped kitchen with oven/convection oven, stove top, refrigerator, icemaker, microwave, coffee maker (with filters, coffee and sugar), toaster, and blender. Dinnerware, silverware, glassware, cookware, cooking utensils, paper plates and cups, cooking oils, basic spices, condiments, sugar, hand soap, dish detergent, dish towels and cloths, paper towels and trash bags are provided. In the backyard there is a gas grill ready for your barbeque.

The cottage is centrally heated and air conditioned.

All of the bedrooms are equipped with bed linens, extra blankets and linens, a clock, and a flashlight. One bedroom has a TV and DVD player.

The Bathroom has a tub with a hand-held shower. Hair dryer, towels, toiletries (soap, shampoo, conditioner, hand lotion), paper products, and first aid kit.

The cottage uses well water, so since not everyone likes well water, we provide bought jugs and bottled water.

Brochures for tourists attractions are provided.

Outside, there are two kayaks and a row boat with paddles. Adult and children's life preservers are provided. Also provided are beach chairs, beach umbrella, cooler, beach towels, floats, children's beach toys, and fishing poles with gear.

This is a wonderful place for children but the cottage is not child-proof. Cottage sits on a bluff with steps to the beach.

Pets are considered, and if approved, there is a $100 fee. Even though some of us like to take our pets on vacation, the next family that rents our cottage should not see any sign that a pet has been there. Please email or call us about your pet.

Our cottage is in a neighborhood where you will only see other cottage owners with their families. All the cottages are on the waterfront. It is a perfect location, has a beautiful view, but close to the ferry that will take you across the river. It is like having the best of both worlds. You will understand why the people who have a cottage here love it.

If you are looking for the perfect quiet summer vacation, this is the cottage for you! We walked in to an air conditioned space with two bottles of local wine and anything vacationers could ask for! We didn't even take our children to half the Williamsburg attractions we had planned on (including Busch Gardens) because they didn't want to leave the river or the turtles that appeared out of nowhere or the fireflies that they caught in jars each evening. As a mother of small children, I truly appreciated the distance between the cottage and the river (there are a good number of stairs one must go down ). The cottage was clean, adorably decorated, and stocked with water, cleaning supplies, good movies, and cozy beach towels. Wow! We would definitely stay here again!

p.s. We saw an awesome rainbow too! :)

We really enjoy our stay. This was truly a get away from everything vacation and we loved it. The cottage is set up with all the little homey extras you need, board games, books, kids movies, etc. that make you feel like a treasured personal guest and you have the beach all to yourself. Busch Gardens, Williamsburg and Jamestown are only a short trip away. We loved the ferry rides to "civilization", kayaking on the river and relaxing in the water. Can't wait to go back.

WONDERFUL Vacation

We had the best vacation we have had in years! I really enjoyed the "family time" that we had in the evenings. We would stay busy all day seeing the sights and attractions then come back, fix dinner, and go down to the river. We were the only ones there and really enjoyed the peace and quiet and sitting on the beach watching the boys in the kayaks. It was nice to get to relax together as a family with no one having to go to work, ball practice or whatever else is going on. We even played UNO or Yahtzee every night. Good thing we were the ones around because we got a little loud at times.
The cottage was more than I expected! It was so nice. It was very clean and stocked with more than I ever dreamed of.
The owners A.C. and Linda were very helpful and easy to work with. Our oldest son turned 17 while we were there and they even had a birthday cake waiting for him when we got there. It was great and he was very surprised. In our mad rush to pack and return home we overlooked a stuffed dinosaur that our 9 year old son had won while at Busch Gardens. He discovered he didn't have it when we were about 2 hours out. I called A.C. and he went and got it and I received t it in the mail today. It is sometimes the smallest things that mean the most.
We truly can not wait to return to this amazing place. We are so glad that we found this diamond in the rough!

Great Family Getaway

We had a lovely stay here. The owners (Linda and A.C) gave us a wonderful welcome and had provided everything we could possibly need in the cottage for our stay.
The views are stunning and the location is perfect for a peaceful family holiday - away from the crowds!
It's a short ferry ride over to the local attractions - Colonial Williamsburg and Historic Jamestown.
We will definitely be returning here, the children loved having some freedom to explore the beach and so did our dog!
