Wonderful Week In Urbanna

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week relaxing with our family in this wonderful river house in Urbanna. The screened-in porch was so perfect; that's where we spent most of our time. Our 23.5' Sea Hunt fit at the dock perfectly, and the bumper padding protected our boat very nicely. Our kids loved the dock which we used for fishing, kayaking and crabbing. The house was super clean, well decorated & furnished very comfortably on a quiet piece of land. We loved fantastic views of the Rappahannock River, Urbanna Harbor & Whitestone Bridge. Urbanna is also a darling place with fun shops & restaurants. A fantastic vacation spot in a quaint Virginia town!! Well Worth the Trip!!

Island Ln, Urbanna VA

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the area and we were pleasantly surprised with the property. It's a good sized house with plenty of bathrooms, a big kitchen, nice screened porch with great views of the water. If all you're looking for is a house on the water - this is it. If you're more interested in lots of local activities then you may want to head a little further south.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely beautiful house & property this is! This was our first trip to Urbanna with the plan to check out the area & other properties and come back annually. Well, we found the perfect house on our first try. No need to look any further! The house is gorgeous & spacious. The private little beach is perfect for our younger children. We have 5 kids seven and under between our two families and they had endless fun out there. It's safe, clean, and easy to monitor from the huge, beautiful screened in porch off the back of the house. All the bedrooms are spacious and each has its own private bath. Amazing! Everything you need is provided (although the one missing item was any form of soap...we'll be sure to pack some next time- it was an easy fix with a quick trip to the nearby, downtown area). Downtown Urbanna is super cute and there is an awesome mini-golf and creamery right outside of town. Also, the Mexican place right past the supermarket is delicious and cheap & the staff there was so friendly and accommodating to our party of 9. All in all it was a wonderful weekend and we hope to come back every year. This rental is just perfect! Thank you for sharing your home! We made some great memories.

Beautiful home for a perfect family week-end, great for sailors

  • 5 of 5

We came to the house for a family reunion with our sailboat and found a very well equipped dock just in front of the house as shown in the picture. The house is very comfortable, clean and well equipped with gorgeous views of the harbor. We loved the porch with its serene atmosphere above the water. Our grand children loved to play on the small beach below the house, and although the community swimming pool was available, we opted for a swim from the beach. Highly recommended rental to enjoy the Chesapeake Bay!

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely beautiful - decorated tastefully, and although furnished with exceptional amenities, we loved the fact that the house had a comfortable and homey feel to it. The layout was very convenient, especially the large master suite with it's lovely bathroom downstairs, and during the week able to have various guests visit and there was plenty of room and privacy for everyone. The three additional bedrooms upstairs each had their own separate bathroom, which was a great feature. The view from every window was gorgeous and so peaceful - sunrise over the river was something to see. I beleve my favorite thing about the house was the spacious screened-in porch that overlooked the river. My daughter's friends that visited loved spending time on the porch in the evenings and spent many hours sunning and swimming from the dock. The location of the house was also very convenient - we were able to get everywhere in such a short amount of time, whether it was the grocery store, cafes and the wonderful restaurants. We had a great week - I don't think we could have asked for nicer accomodations.. We highly recommend this beach house to anyone wanting the perfect getaway.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house. I have a 21 ft boat that we kept at the pier, I spent a lot of time out on the water. We decided that we needed a Virginia location this year that allowed flexibility for our family members to visit the days available to them. This house was 2 hours away from our home and we had children in new jobs located around the state. The location was perfect for us. Over the week we were able to catch about 2 dozen crabs with the crab pots that were available to use. We had porpoises swim by the pier on one occasion. The available kayak was used to cross the creek to the beach everyone likes to hangout at.

All of the rooms are nicely furnished and comfortable and with 4 bedrooms everyone could have their own room without anyone having to sleep on the sofa like we have done in the past at other locations. The screen porch overlooking the river was one of the favorite places for everyone to relax and read and to have morning coffee. The whole house is very spacious.

The area was very quiet throughout the week.

There is cable broadband internet that allows you to cable in one device, it would be nice if a wireless router were to be added to the cable modem.

Thank you for allowing us to use your lovely home

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your nice comments. Just wanted to let you know that we now have a wireless router up and running. We had installed it prior to your visit but it stopped working. MetroCast repaimen only give a repair date and a 5 hour window of when they will (might) show up, and I just did not feel I could ask a guest to schedule their plans around a repair. I am so glad the house and location worked out so well for you. Come again! Betsy
