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 buisness. 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!

The house was beautiful and definitely everything that we expected and more.

  • 5 of 5

We went for a girls weekend, played games, walked on the beach, and made some great meals. We met the proprietor of the local corner store and staff at both post offices who were very helpful! They make some great chicken salad by the way!

We missed the eclipse that weekend because of some clouds but enjoyed impressive sunsets from the dock and a healthy downpour that we escaped by 2 minutes. The weather was unseasonably warm while we were there so we spent a lot of time walking the neighborhood and the beach. Even in February we found some crabs to examine and play with and jellyfish to watch. There was even some spelunking going on!

We enjoyed our time so much we stayed an extra day! Thanks Shannon for making your home so comfortable and inviting.

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic and we look forward to visiting again with our family of 6 or as a couples get away. Master closet was huge and perfect for pack 'n' play; second bedroom queen could sleep two kids and sofas in living room or master could sleep kids too. Kiddos loved the beach--definitely need water shoes as the homeowner says in her check-in notes. The house was well cared for, clean, and the homeowners are clearly thoughtful in their maintenance and furnishing of the house.

A beautiful house right on the water!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful New Year's Eve weekend at this house on the Ware River! The house was nicely decorated and had windows galore for a bright and happy environment. It's perfect for a romantic getaway with the upstairs being a huge and beautiful master suite. We look forward to returning!!!

Fantastic relaxing vacation on the water

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely stay at the pristine cottage on the water. The views were breathtaking and the house was comfortable and clean. It was about 40-50 min from all the stuff in Williamsburg and there was also a little charming local store 5 minutes away where we enjoyed some wonderful sandwiches and could pick up some food staples. We hope to return again.

Wonderful Birthday Getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a relaxing time. Enjoyed the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I had a good time trying my hand at crabbing and fishing from the dock. Our second time at this cottage but won't be our last. Thanks for a great stay.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

It goes without saying that the cottage is beautiful and the setting is amazing - what really makes the cottage stand out is the owners have made sure that every detail for your stay is perfect. Our trip was scheduled to return to Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown which were all a short drive. We would highly recommend the Waterfront Cottage.
