Come vacation in a beautiful waterfront setting! Mill Hill is a spacious riverfront estate dating back more than two centuries -- but with every modern convenience. With room for all, and every amenity you could desire -- including a chef's kitchen, water view side porch, porch swing, canoe dock, boat ramp, and gas fireplace -- Mill Hill is a great place for a family, a group of friends, or a couple to vacation. Crab or fish from the dock, swim, canoe, watch for osprey, or just just relax with a good book and your favorite beverage. Located in the heart of Tidewater in an area known locally as 'land of the life worth living,' you could spend days just enjoying this lovely property. However, if you can bear to tear yourself away -- you are within minutes of some of America's finest historic sights -- Jamestown, Yorktown and Williamsburg -- as well as fine elegant and casual dining, extraordinary antiquing and other great shopping, and a wide variety of water sports. Groups larger than 6 may wish to rent the one-BR cottage on the property as well (listing 3021375).
Few places are more beautiful -- or more historic -- than Gloucester County. Nestled in the heart of Tidewater Virginia, Gloucester County was once home to the Powhatan Tribe and Pocahontas, as well as notable colonial families such as George Washington's ancestors. The site of countless waterways and five broad rivers, including the North River on the banks of which 'Mill Hill' resides, Gloucester is a haven for sailing, canoeing, kayaking, and other water sports -- as well as dining on mouthwatering shellfish and other culinary delicacies. Just an hour from Richmond and 2 1/2 hours from Washington, DC, Gloucester is a great base for exploring all of the wonders of the Middle Peninsula of Virginia These include not only Gloucester's own historic courthouse circle, beautiful colonial Ware Church and Abingdon Church, and history museums, but also the charming arts community of Mathews just up Route 14 with its well-known lighthouse and sand beaches, and of course the world-renowned attractions of Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown and the College of William and Mary down Route 17 and across the York River.
