Waterfront house with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, pet-friendly, min age 6 for kids
About Karla Scanlan
We (Dave and Karla) are the proud 'parents' of our yellow Lab, Skink, and rescue cat, Shamrock, and the delighted uncle and aunt of ten nieces/nephews. Our labs have traveled w/us on vacations down to the Florida Keys and up to Bar Harbor (where we honeymooned three decades ago). All the kids in our lives regularly remind us how amazing the rural life is and how lucky we are to be so immersed in nature. Don't hold it against us but we're die hard Dallas Cowboys fans since the late 70s!
Karla Scanlan purchased this House in 2016
Why Karla Scanlan chose Foster
The water view...just stunning views of the East River, the main reason we purchased Green Acres at the Bay. We spent the better part of a year renovating this farmhouse and property to provide a vacation paradise for couples, families and of course it's dog-friendly. Master gardener Richard worked his magic again to make the grounds spectacular including fire pit, pathway gardens and he even incorporated the original owners' skiff into the entrance way gardens. Let the relaxation begin!

Family Weekend Getaway
Green Acres is a fabulous place for a weekend getaway! The owners put a lot of thought into ensuring that each guest feels welcomed and at home during their stay. We had a full weekend of fun as a family and never left the property. We enjoyed Kayaking, fishing, biking, walking, time by the fire pit and more.
Long weekend getaway
This property was by far the cleanest and most organized Vrbo property we’ve ever visited. The home and property offered a peaceful and quiet weekend which was just what we wanted.
Wonderful setting, great house.
Clean and inviting and comfortable.
Amazing, accommodating and restful !!!
Wonderful place to spend a week. Wish we could’ve stayed longer. Karla and her husband did everything to accommodate my family.
Really made us feel great and our stay was terrific. The property was well groomed and the house was neat as a pen. We’ve stayed in many vacation homes and I must say that this one had that brand new feel to it. Love a clean environment !
The kitchen was well stocked and had so many bonuses that we really didn’t need to pack as much as we did. We had a great time fishing and crabbing from the dock. The kayaks were great and the general feel of the property was quiet and private.
Thank you for offering up your wonderful property. We want to come back next year.
Very quiet and relaxing stay. Enjoyed the fishing and crabbing and the house was very nice, overall we had a Great Time.
5 of us needed a 4 bedroom place for 2 nights to attend a weekend event in Yorktown, and we decided to skip the hotels for once and try a VRBO property. We agreed on Green Acres and what a great decision we made!
Every aspect of our stay, from booking through departure was perfect. Karla was a pleasure to deal with and every convenience was considered and provided. The house was incredibly clean upon arrival, the yard/grounds manicured, and the dock was well appointed.
We stayed 2 nights and cooked 4 times (2 breakfast and 2 dinners including a cookout on the Weber). We brought many things we thought a rental property kitchen may lack, but that was a complete waste of our time. Every type of utensil, pot, pan, etc.. was already there, clean and ready to use. What a pleasant surprise. Terrible to spend your first hour at a vacation rental cleaning up after the last guest. Absolutely not the case with this property. Excellent on arrival...straight to the dock for fun!
The 5 of us who stayed at the property are all in Retail so we are used to getting "1 star reviews" for very odd reasons. After finding zero issues with any aspect of the property through the first 24 hours, the running joke for our stay was "Wonderful Property, Location, Views, and Ownership but one of the 3 spatulas provided was a little flimsier than we would prefer...1-Star". The property is THAT good.
Really hoping to have another reason to stay again in the area soon, and this will be our first call. Anywhere between West Point, Williamsburg, and Hampton is all within an hour drive. Give me Green Acres over a Hotel off a random I-64 exit every time.
Would highly recommend this property to anyone needing a great retreat with family and/or friends. We should have stayed 4 nights instead of 2. Next time for sure!
Thanks to Karla and Green Acres!
