About Cathy Bokman
We first discovered Colonial Beach in 2006 and after enjoying the easy drive from Chevy Chase, MD and the warmth not only of the beach, but also the people...we bought a small cottage on the Point in 2007; ironically next to what is Beachcomber III. We loved sharing it with our family and friends. When not relaxing at the beach, my day job is in the hotel business and I thought it would be fun to own a vacation cottage rental. In 2011, we bought our first beach rental; Beachcomber I on Hawthorn with some of our family members and undertook a major renovation...all of the hard work was worth it...we enjoyed being able to share this hidden secret of Colonial Beach with others. The overwhelming acceptance and positive comments we have received from guests saying how much they enjoyed their stay was very gratifying and in 2012 we bought another rental; Beachcomber II on Wilder. It, too, has been well received by our guests. I will say, it is a lot of work keeping the houses nice for our guests...but I have tremendous help from a team of local people who make sure it is clean, keys work, everything is in working order, lawn cut..special thanks to Katie and Phyllis who treat these cottages like their own and Ethel, Chris, and LLoyd who pitch in, as needed. I know, like me, after you experience the welcoming calm of Colonial Beach, you will be back many times...and we hope it is at one of the Beachcomber Cottages!
Cathy Bokman purchased this House in 2013
Why Cathy Bokman chose Colonial Beach
We chose this property for a couple of reasons; view, size, location, and the fact that it was demolished to the studs so that it was really a clean slate. As we reconstructed it; we changed the layout for maximum enjoyment of the view and adding the ability to have a guest suite within the house. Also we liked that it was one story; through the past several years of renting we have found that many of our guests want the accessibility of one level living.
What makes this House unique
We think you will enjoy the views from the front porch, livingroom, and dining room. We think you will like that it is close to a quiet beach. Many guests in our past rentals have enjoyed that we are family friendly; including your dogs. They also love the two large separate living areas; large den in back of the house and the front livingroom...giving people time together and apart. Please tell us what you enjoy!

Colonial Beach is perfect vacation area. Quiet and relaxing.
The home is so much bigger that it appears. There was ample room for our large group and it was an easy, short walk to the beach. Open floor plan was nice. Easy to visit with each other while cooking.
Pictures don't even begin to show how nice!
Our family loves this house it was very clean, decor was terrific, great spaces...Thank You! We have been coming for the past 4 years...and will be back!
We had a wonderful time. Beautiful house with an amazing view. Very spacious and the owners which lived next door were very accommodating.
We hope to see you, your friends, and family again! While we live next door, we work hard to be accessible, but still give you your privacy. Actually, many of our guests don't realize we are next door.
Have a great summer and come see us again soon and often!
Everything and more!
Hi Cathy. I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how very much we enjoyed our stay at 1419 Lossing this past weekend. Over the years we have stayed at quite a few VRBO homes, and I must say that yours was by far the best one we have experienced. It was so well stocked with everything that we could possibly need. We were very pleased with the location...so nice and quiet yet close to a couple of good restaurants so that we didn't feel the need to do a lot of driving for a good evening meal. Thank you for making your home so inviting to your renters. It was a pleasure to stay there, and if/when we come back to that area, we will certainly contact you.
Wonderful location, with a spectacular view of the Potomac! Didn’t realize how large this place was... lots of nice touches as well! Also, wonderful communication from owner. Hope to visit again!
Thanks for spending your holidays with us!
Yes the house is deceptive...has great space, but appears small from the outside. We were surprised when we first looked at purchasing it several years ago. In the redesign we opened up the house, but also tried to make sure it had some cozy feeling as well!
We hope to see you with us again and often!
Everything was great! The house was great! Everyone had an excellent time! Thank you!
We enjoyed having you and your friends with us again; we are glad you enjoyed the home! It is wonderful to see old teammates get together for a reunion.
Come see us again next year!
A family vacation to remember at the Beachcomber III; the newest of the Beachcomber cottages, welcoming guests since June 2014! Our 4 bedroom, 3 bath vacation home, is family friendly. This cottage features a quiet location with waterview and is steps to the quiet Castlewood Beach and boat launch on the Point. Located one mile from the center of town; the house is close to the beach and Docksides Restaurant bar and marina is just 3 blocks away! The beauty of the Beachcomber III is it is perfect for families and couples. The house is a one story easily accessible home featuring 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. House has great space to relax with a large open eat in kitchen, livingroom and family room with den. A hidden gem of the house is that there is the ability to have privacy in the back of the house for a couple with a bedroom, bath, kitchenette, and den; that can be locked off for privacy. The enjoyment of the Beachcomber isn't limited to the house. Great views from the front deck of sunrise over the river Also we feature a gas grill and picnic area; great for crab picking! Colonial Beach, Virginia...the Gateway to the Northern Neck of Virginia.... a beach front haven, less than 2 hours from DC, along the Potomac River. Many say, it is place that time has forgotten with its slow pace, friendly people who wave as they drive past you on their golf carts, wide beaches where the Potomac River is 4 to 6 miles wide, within minutes to historical attractions; George Washington's Birthplace; the Lee Family Home, Stratford Plantation, explore Westmoreland State Park, and find Shark's teeth and more, great boating, fishing,crabbing, and discover the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail, Westmoreland Berry Farm. several great waterfront restaurants, waterfront live bands on weekends during the summer, great crabs. Just a quick hour away is Kings Dominion Theme Park; featuring great rides and waterpark. Thanks for looking and be prepared to fall in love with Colonial Beach and the Northern Neck!
