We enjoy the relaxing time we have at Colonial Beach. The Bikini Bottom has everything we need so it is a fuss free vacation every time we visit.
Colonial Beach Va is a step back in time. Laid back, low key, low cost location with a nice modernized cottage and a magnificent view of the Potomac River.
What was a cool factor is one of the main ways of getting around is by golf cart, so we rented one. They were all over the place. The cottage was on a quiet residential street and a short walk to the beach. No problems whatsoever with the house. Owners checked with us so that showed they cared. Had all you need. Locally, things to fill your time=beach, boardwalk, a three day blues Festival we went to, classic car show, some nice restaurants/bars=all within five minutes by golf cart.Fredericksburg was 30 minutes away. Another gem with bustling shops and restaurants in the walkable downtown. The Colonial Beach 7-11 store seemed to be the center of local's activity. All in all, a top notch cottage with a lot to do in the area.
We had a great stay at the "beautiful cottage". Everything was as described. The views of the Potomac River from the back yard were amazing - so peaceful. The cottage was actually larger than we expected. Clean and well maintained with a little cottage charm of a few antique and unique pieces of furniture. Nice kitchen, large laundry room, plenty of seating to lounge out on the porch or family room in front of house or kitchen/dinning room in back of house or eat under the covered porch outside or around the fire pit in the back yard. We enjoyed our two favorite restaurants in Colonial Beach 1)dockside (great views of potomac, music, drinks at the tiki bar and good seafood poor-boy sandwich) 2) Lighthouse (nice view of the Monroe Bay beautiful at sunset, great food more upscale, amazing flounder). We look forward to our next visit - Kiki & Walt
My husband and I came for a much needed get away and it was Great!!!! The area was peaceful and relaxing, walking distance to the beach. The house was wonderful, spent every evening in the backyard by the fire pit! Can't wait to bring our boys ...planning many more trips to Colonial Beach.
My family and I really enjoyed the stay. Everything we needed was there for our use. I would have provided a five star rating if not for the infestation of flys on the patio area.
This was my first trip to this cottage and Colonial Beach . I didn't know exactly what to expect as there is very little information about Colonial Beach that isn't just regurgitated on Web and the cottage pic's are limited. I was immediately smitten with both. The area is what my mother and I jokingly called 'Sleepy Hollow ' it has such a relaxing vibe , gorgeous views, lots of nature to enjoy and some great food. Perfect family locale! The cottage was amazing. The rooms were large and nicely decorated. There were only 3 in my party but the place could have easily accommodated many more. The views from the kitchen and dining area and backyard were fantastic. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was for the a poor cleaning job when we checked in- the previous party must have broken a glass and we wore shoes the whole time as we kept finding shards throughout the weekend. Also the cooking tools left much to be desired and we purchased a couple replacements for our stay. I will definitely be returning to Colonial beach and hope to stay at Bikini bottom cottage again. The owner was gracious and responsive and we had a wonderful time !
Our family of 4 loved this place! We stayed here when our boys were 7 and 3 years old and it was easy street! Tile floors, cement driveway (great for bikes, skates etc), washer/dryer and a fenced in yard. To top it off it's on a slow moving side street and only a 0.3 mile walk to the beach. The beach was secluded during the week and even had a volleyball net. There's a park the same distance away and about 0.5 miles from the house is a great waterside place to eat/drink (they even had the NASCAR race on, much to my husband's delight!)
Only two things would have made the stay better for me personally; a blender and a screened in porch (Mosquitos eat me alive and were raging while we visited). Still, a top notch rental for laid back vacationers, very attentive owners!
