About Larry and Sheila Tinker
Owner: Sheila Poland Tinker. I grew up in Gloucester and graduated from Gloucester High in 1977. Married Larry Tinker in 1993, moved to Yorktown and had one beautiful daughter, Brittany.
Larry and Sheila Tinker purchased this Cabin in 1991
Why Larry and Sheila Tinker chose Gloucester Point
This cabin has been in my family since 1941. It was being built by my grandfather and his 3 sons(my father was 7 at the time) when Pearl Harbor was being bombed. So it has a lot of memories in it for my family. My husband and I bought it from my 2 uncles in 1991 and now share 2/3 ownership with my dad. We have refurbished it and updated it without taking away the beautiful memories of the history. You can still see the handprints on the A- frame wood ceiling from where they had to place each piece. This cabin means a lot to me and my family and we look forward to sharing it with you!
What makes this Cabin unique
Beautiful stone fireplace with electric fire logs for ambience. French doors that open to the screened porch, where you can see the most beautiful sunsets on the York River. Can fish right from the property without getting a fishing license. (ask for details on confirmation number to do that). Very peaceful and quiet but still close to alot of fun things to do. We will consider pets, but need to know full details beforehand. Have had trouble in the past and are now very cautious about allowing them, but understand how important they are to your family. We have 2 Yorkies of our own and love being able to take them with us.

Charming hillside view over the York River
This charming cabin sits on a woodsy hill overlooking the York River at Gloucester Point, across from the historic Yorktown Battlefield. Inside, the cabin was wondrously decorated with lots of snowmen to my wife's delight and dolphins & other maritime themes for me.
Piece on the river
Thanks for letting us share your cozy cabin on the river . The view was spectacular and the sunsets were therapeutic!
house was clean and comfortable. larry was a pleasure to deal with. cold and windy during our stay but view was very nice. bald eagles, pelicans, gulls, loons, woodpeckers kept us company along with a snowman or 2. we will be going back in the summer.
Perfect start to a new year!
We enjoyed our quick trip, it was just what we needed to have a great start to the new year. We all wish we could’ve stayed longer, and look forward to coming back!
Can't wait to return
Cabin is charming, very comfortable, and has everything you need. The view is amazing and it has a small private beach on the York River! It is very close to Yorktown, Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Langley AFB/Ft. Eustis. We are already trying to plan an time to return. Sheila and Larry met us at the cabin and showed us around. It was wonderful to meet them and it is obvious how much they love the cabin.
