About Shannon French

When I was 27 years old, I decided to sell real estate. Shortly after at the age of 29, I decided to open my own brokerage, Southern Trade Realty (Oct. 2006 so you do the math to see how old I am now)! I quickly learned to combine my passion for designing, creating and decorating to another level. I started to invest in real estate at a very young age, and I am still very passionate about it. I really enjoy getting to know my guests and proud to say I now have repeat business. I concentrate on making sure my guests are happy and I take pride in the comfort of my properties and of course, the decor has to be just right. Feel free to call me Shannon 804-815-1912.

Shannon French purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Shannon French chose Tidewater & Hampton Roads

This area is where I personally grew up. I remember the days on the river at a very young age. I fished, crabbed, learned how to swim, relax, kayak, explore and I am still enjoying all of this today with my family and friends.

What makes this cottage unique

Pictures cannot even describe this property (many of our guests say this once they arrive). It is one of the most serene places to be. Listening to the waves crash up against the rocks at night, taking a nap in the hammock on a warm summer afternoon, to watching the Osprey on the river, there is not a better place to enjoy nature at it's best. It is all at your fingertips.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the pleasant and memorable stay. We love your cozy cottage. Our second stay is as good experience as the first one. See you next year. Happy New Year!

A Wonderful Stay at the Ware River, Gloucester VA

  • 5 of 5

The listing said there were incredible views & we were not disappointed! We awoke to beautiful sunrises & in the evenings exquisite sunsets! The main bedroom w/windows on three sides allows for stunning views of water & wild life. Snowy egrets, turns, gulls, blue crabs.... oh my! Nothing like sitting on the screened porch, with cocktail, listing to the waves lap against the shore & a lightning display in the sky trailing back & forth over the water!

Shannon was friendly, easy to work with and most accommodating! We look forward to our return to this well equipped & lovely home!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

The house was as described and we were very happy. The views were beautiful from each window. Sunrise and sunset were enjoyed daily! Very well appointed kitchen. Master bed and bath were huge. 2nd bedroom a bit small. Beds were very comfortable. Would return just for the peace and quiet!!

Awesome place, incredible views of sunsets, sunrises in the Ware River. Only drawbacks were fireplace and upstairs tv were not working. Would definitely come back.

Romantic Solitude

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were able to escape on our honeymoon for only a couple of days, but we both absolutely loved this waterfront paradise. The views are stunning, the house is nicely decorated, extremely comfortable. The kitchen setting is beautiful and overlooks the water. The jacuzzi tub outside is positioned just right to give you privacy and still an amazing view of the water. Every detail was just right, even the fully stocked cupboards and the gas fireplace in the living room. I cannot wait to return!

Wonderful views and this home is a place to "Relax, refresh, renew".

We rented in the fall, during some chilly weather, so we couldn't use the canoe or kayaks.

We're sure the summer months would be ideal to take advantage of the water right in front of the home.

We would have given this home 5 stars if it wasn't for the long delay in the return of our damage deposit. It was 16 days after we left that we finally received it. Renter beware!

That is this property's policy.

Wonderful Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful, well-appointed home over the 2015 Memorial Day weekend. As others have noted, the views from the house are spectacular. The master suite is quite luxurious, occupying the entire second floor of the house. Our son and his fiancée joined us for part of our visit and we all had a great time crabbing and kayaking. My husband and I loved having the bicycles. The area is very beautiful and quiet-osprey were nesting off the front of the property- and we awoke in the morning to the sounds of birds singing. Do visit the local store and remember to order your steaks in advance. They go quickly!

We had a wonderful lunch at Merrior in Topping, followed by a visit to the Dog & Oyster Vineyard in Irvington, two favorite spots for an outing. Williamsburg and Yorktown are less than an hour away, although you may not feel the need to stray that far from this lovely oasis. We are hoping for another visit!

Thank you Shannon!
