The Chilton Summer House offers abundant comfort, recreation, and relaxation for your family and friends on Virginia's Northern Neck. Situated on the wide expanse of the Rappahannock just upstream from the Chesapeake Bay, the water views are endless and the sunsets are spectacular. The Chilton Summer House is located about 20 minutes by land, ferry, or water from the Kilmarnock/Irvington area, where you can discover the trendy shops, restaurants, antiques, art galleries and golf courses. Nearby Belle Isle State Park offers boat and bike rentals and walking trails. Rich historical sites are a short drive. Too ambitious? Then just relax on the veranda or doze in the hammock on the riverbank. The bright and spacious home is located on a quiet gravel lane with plenty of privacy. The large great room looks out on the water. TV room is separate. Full bath and 1 BR on the first floor. 2 baths and 2 2-bedroom suites on the 2nd floor. Indoor or outdoor dining. Come and enjoy!
