Kinsale House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Shannon Point Lodge is located at Sandy Point, VA, in the heart of Virginia’s historic Northern Neck, approximately 2 hours from Washington, DC and 1.5 hours from Richmond, VA. It rests on the banks of the Shannon Branch of the Yeocomico River, near Kinsale on a private waterfront point. It was initially built in 1932 as a fishing cottage and was fully renovated in 2008.

The Lodge is now a 2400 square foot single-story house with an open floor plan that includes beautiful panoramic views of the water. Open layout is also wheel chair friendly. Newly added 12 x 24 waterfront deck with handicap ramp.

The house easily sleeps 10-12 with 4 bedrooms(2 bedrooms on each wing) and a sleeper sofa, 2 full bathrooms, central air and heat, cable TV, a fully equipped kitchen, “Rivah” room with a gorgeous waterfront view, washer-dryer, and a large waterside porch.

Bring your boat and jet skis. There is a pier with 2 boat slips (3.5 – 4 ft MLW) at the property for your use and enjoyment. There is also great fishing and crabbing from the pier. Sandy Point Marina with boat launching facilities and gasoline is located within one mile of the property.

In addition to Summer water and outdoor activities, don’t miss Fall rockfish and hunting seasons.

Excellent Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

5 stars are really not enough. Bill and family go above and beyond -- they don't just rent the home (clean linens, kitchen with utensils, cable TVs, Internet, canoe, kayaks, bikes, fishing rods, etc.)... they want to be sure you enjoy your stay. We caught fish, kayaked, cooked outside by the fire, lay in the hammock... you can keep kids of all ages busy for days without having to go anywhere.

Family fun

  • 5 of 5

We chose this area because we had never been there and we traveled with elderly parents, so the house was a dream. Bill the owner was fantastic. We had car trouble on our way to Virginia and he directed us to a mechanic and did some chauffering for us. He also was available for other minor things we needed and directed to the seafood place. The layout of the house was very open. My dad uses a walker and was able to easily get around the house. Lots of space, there were five of us on this trip and we could all be in a different part of the house if we wanted to. Very comfortable beds and seating. We also were able to fish off the dock. My dad caught a small fish and was really excited, he hadn't fished in awhile. We took my mom to a winery and a small town about an hour away. We also got to see some historical areas. Washing tons birthplace and a couple of battle sights. Overall a great trip, many memories made. We would recommend this house and area for a peaceful, relaxing week. Thank you Bill

A Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was just as we saw in the pictures, very spacious and lovely. We had some friends stay the first night and they spent the next day fishing and having a great time in the water. And as for Bill, the owner, he was super. We had to call in a few times and he was there within a few minutes. He could not do enough for us. The beds were so comfortable and plenty of room for all of us. I have told several people you could have 20 people there and no one would be in any one's way. All in all I cannot say enough good things about Shannon Point Lodge. We cannot wait to return next year.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

Had a reunion of sorts,girls weekend with friends dating back to kindergarten. We made our way to the cottage from upstate NY, Raleigh NC, Washington DC and Richmond, VA. Not knowing what to expect, we were all pleasantly surprised. The Owner was most accommodating - providing firewood, awning on back deck and even some added handicapped accessories for the convenice of a wheelchair bound visitor. Couldn't say enough about the Owner and his need to make sure we were accommodated. The cottage is very comfortable and homey. It is well appointed. Even the gray skyes did not prevent us from having a great time.

We rented this home to vacation and be close to family and friends in the Northern Neck of Virginia.

The owners and home met all of our expectations. We got to visit with our nearby relatives and enjoy some outdoor activities, as well as quality relaxin time. I would recommend this property to anyone who enjoys the peace and tranquility of outdoors.
