About Diane Boyle
We love the relaxed atmosphere of being right on the Chesapeake Bay where going to beach doesn't require leaving the property.

Peaceful and Picturesque Retreat
This comfortable home is the perfect place to restore your soul with the quiet natural beauty of the Chesapeake Bay. It offers all the modern conveniences with expansive views of the water reflecting the brilliance of sunrises and soft glow of pinks and blues on the horizon as daylight begins to fade. Treat your family to some time to relax and reconnect!
Glad you enjoyed it. Your description makes me realize I'm due for a visit.
Our New Home Away From Home!
We just returned from our stay in White Stone. People look for different things in a rental so what appeals to us may not be everyone else's cup of tea. So if you like quiet, seclusion, small towns, waterfront setting, private beach and beautiful home with 2 master suites then this is what you are looking for. The owner Diane is quick to respond to questions and you cannot ask for anyone more accommodating. Thank-you for sharing such a nice home Diane.
Like your own private island!
Our family of 10 had plenty of room. The kayak, paddle board and canoe were perfect for the beautiful shallow waters of Chesapeake Bay! There is a house next door but we still felt like we had our own private island! Sandy beach and warm, calm waters are perfect for young children. Lots of beach toys and beach towels available. Kitchen has many great amenities but could use some new larger fry pans. We cooked many great meals and the Weber gas grill was a plus! Make sure you hit the grocery store beforehand as it's quite a drive back into town! The Northern Neck area has cool shops, art galleries and lots of historical sites! We checked out The Steamship Era Museum and George Washington's birthplace!
Diane was great to work with! We can't wait to return!
Glad your group had a good time. We look forward to having you back and enjoying new larger frying pans. Thanks for the tip. We try to keep on top of the amenities throughout the year and do a major refresh at the end of each season. We'll make sure large frying pans are on the list.
Great location for getting away from the hustle ansnbustle
Wonderful home, very comfortable and plenty of room for everyone to stretch out and relax. Loved the location as it is 7 miles from the small town of White Stone. Cell service is not good at the house but that was almost a blessing! Enjoyed the beach to ourselves. You need to keep on top of your food bundled up as the ants will come out in full force but as long as you keep things sealed up and cleaned up they were under control. the weather was perfect while we were there in late July, occasional rain late afternoon in a few days but mostly hot and sunny. Had an issue with the air conditioning but contacted the owner and she had a repairman out first thing in the morning and had it fixed no problem. My family consisted of my husband and myself and our 5 adult children and a few of their friends. Not one complaint all week....... we would definitely return!
The cell service does stink regardless of your carrier! The wifi and free use of the land line typically will keep folks adequately connected. I'm sorry the A/C went screwy during your stay, but am glad we were able to get it fixed quickly. We look forward to having you visit again.
Great views of the bay!
The views were fantastic and the house was very roomy and clean. The weather was less than desirable but the house provided enough space to allow everyone to enjoy themselves regardless. Overall a success and we'd definitely return.
Glad you enjoyed the house and I'm so sorry the weather wasn't great. We continually try to improve the experiences of our guests so you'll find the house as good if not better next trip.
Beautiful home and beach
We had a wonderful stay! Beautiful weather, beach and home!! Blessed with perfect 90 degree weather. Home had everything we needed to enjoy our time there. A little paint and new screens on the doors but not a deterrent from our stay just an observation.
Thanks. We rely on our guests to point out needed improvements and attempt to have them addressed quickly. We'll get new screens on the doors. The cleaning crew doesn't always notice as our little visitors tend to poke their fingers or toys thru the screen leaving holes below eye level.
