Imagine getting away from it all by crossing a footbridge to an island Victorian cottage on a small lake. This guesthouse in Pungoteague is no mirage. Pretty Byrd Cottage on Evergreen Farm, an 18th century estate on the Chesapeake Bay, is a unique oasis which combines the best of today's conveniences with the charm of Victorian decor.
Surrounded by a three-acre pond, the cottage is accessible by walking across the footbridge or paddling over on the paddleboat. Enjoy breakfast on the Victorian Porch, then take a stroll through the gardens, or put on your bathing suit and stroll to the beach on the Chesapeake Bay. There are even kayaks if you are so inclined. You can even feed the fish from the bridge.
A charming retreat for couples or a pleasant solo getaway, Pretty Byrd Cottage is a unique and delightful experience.
My husband and I decided to cancel our reservation at a hotel chain near the Eastern Shore when we saw the pictures of this beautiful cottage. We were not disappointed. Both Cathy and Rhet were incredibly helpful on the phone and through email, and when we arrived, they welcomed us with a bottle of wine and a cake to help celebrate our anniversary. Pretty Byrd Cottage also had a fully stocked fridge that leaves nothing to be desired. The bed is comfortable, the cottage is private, and there are plenty of things to do nearby. Like others have mentioned, Cathy and Rhet are friendly and welcoming, and we were excited to watch the sunset from their beautiful back yard. Staying here for a weekend without a TV, cell signal, or wifi connection was not a problem; we talked and laughed more than we would have with the distraction of our technology.
The Pretty Bryd Cottage was the perfect wedding anniversary getaway. The house is amazing, and the beach is a short walk from the house. Cathy and Rhett were very accommodating, and they are a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for rest and relaxation. This is the perfect place for anyone to obtain inspiration or to clear their minds.
I am in love with this sweet cottage!! It was the perfect place to celebrate our 19th anniversary. A true place to get lost!! Attention to detail goes into all aspects of this cottage from the placement on the little island to the stocked refrigerator when you arrive!! Cathy and Rhet have thought of everything and even included a bottle of wine and a cake for our celebration. The property is very secluded and quiet and just a short walk will take you to a beautiful beach on the bay. We cannot wait to return. We have been to the Eastern Shore many times but this time we learned so much more about the history of the area. I would highly recommend this little piece of heaven to anyone wanting to truly get away from it all and recharge the batteries!! Cathy and Rhet are wonderful to work with and the property exceeds expectations!!
I can't imagine a better place to escape from the chaos of the world. Surrounded by water, this home was well stocked and loved from top to bottom. This is a perfect place to inspire creativity and an ideal respite from the outer world. Perfect. Thank you Cathy and Rhet. Todd & Alex
This place is a dream come true. Honestly a little piece of heaven. I could go on and on... but truly it is unlike any place I've ever been.
This is a picture perfect place.
It was more than great, it was awesome. We spent our honeymoon here and could not believe just how gorgeous this cottage was. The host were excellent while still respecting our need to be alone. The kitchen was fully stocked right down to the sparkling cider for our toast. This is a must do again and I highly recommend this place for couples to spend some real quiet time together.
Thank you Kathy & Rhet
