Our waterfront beach cottage sits on a bluff overlooking the James River and Jamestown Island, with steps down to your private beach. You will have the privacy of a cottage and will be directly across the river from Jamestown and Williamsburg. The view of the river is wide open (about a mile to the left is the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry Dock and to the right is Cobham Bay).
Watch spectacular sunrises over the river from the deck or the air conditioned/heated front porch. After spending the day in Jamestown, Williamsburg, Yorktown, Busch Gardens, Water Country, or some of the other attractions Virginia has to offer, come back to relax on the 'rivah' in the privacy of your cottage. Sometimes just watching eagles and ospreys fish, playing on the beach or in the river, or kayaking is just what is needed after a busy day. Or you can just spend a whole day having fun on the rivah!
The James River here at the cottage is tidal water and is clean. The tide comes in and goes out very slowly, so it is great for children to play in. It is partly salty and partly freshwater. There is not a drop-off.
You will have your privacy here. There are no houses behind the cottages. Once you leave the paved road, you are 0.4 mile down a lane from the start of a perfect vacation.
The free car ferry belongs to the VA Department of Transportation and runs 24 hours a day. When landing at Jamestown, Williamsburg is 4 miles straight down the road (about 5 min.), and it takes about 15 minutes to get to Busch Gardens. Yorktown is a little beyond Williamsburg. The ferry dock on this side is one mile from the cottage.
