|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
As you walk up to the front porch; one of the rocking chairs will beckon you to come sit and enjoy the view of the river..keep going.. through the large front doors, you will want to relax on the sofa or comfy chairs in the livingroom and once again enjoy the views..keep going to the dining area that seats 6 to 8 with a French door out to a patio with BBQ grill...the fully equipped kitchen with island, dishwasher, microwave, stove, and refrigerator complete with an adjacent laundry room are great spaces for the family to enjoy...but there is more...keep going to the family room with stone fireplace (candles only) and wetbar. House features 4 bedrooms; 3 with Queen size beds and one with 2 twins. The 3 bathrooms; one with shower/tub and the other two with walk-in showers. House has cable and Wi-Fi.
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. 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 cottage in 2013
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.
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. Please tell us what you enjoy!
The cottage was above and beyond my expectations! My best friend and I brought our kids and grandkids for a few days and then they left and we had the whole place to ourselves the rest of the time to antique shop around town, go to the different fairs in town, have some good seafood, and enjoy the wonderful cottage, sitting on the front deck watching the river flow by. Just awesome and relaxing! Can't wait to come back!
We stayed for a long weekend Thursday - Monday and it is a great house - great location and the kids loved being so close to the beach. It is a great beach for little ones as it is so shallow for a long way out and no big waves. House nice and big and plenty of space for every one and great amenities The only reason I did not give it five stars is that my two daughters said their beds were really hard - not soft at all and for ours (master) it really creaked every time you turned around and we were afraid we would wake everyone anytime we turned or moved. Overall, a great stay and we would definitely come back again. The town is great and we rented a golf cart, plenty to do and there are plenty places to eat out as well.
Thanks it was great!
We booked this cottage for a weekend away with two other couples and the cottage was spacious enough for all of us to feel comfortable and all have a level of privacy! It is a quick walk to the water, the Marina and Tiki Bar. Other restaurants are a 15-20 minute walk and the town is very cute. Our weekend was incredibly hot, so we didn't really get to enjoy as much of what the area has to offer, but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless. While we were there, the power went out due to a car accident and while this resulted in an unexpected change in our plans, we still had a great time! However, we were quite surprised to be offered the opportunity to come back for the weekend on the owners, what a great surprise and excellent customer service! Would definitely recommend this cottage for a quick getaway from DC with the makings for both low key and fun!
My family had a wonderful time on our vacation at Beachcomber 3. The house was clean with plenty of room for everyone. We especially enjoyed riding the bikes in the evening with the breeze coming in off the water. And there were plenty of games to keep the kids occupied while we were fixing dinner. My favorite time was sitting out front with my coffee enjoying the view first thing in the morning.Cathy was always available to answer questions which was greatly appreciated! All in all I would recommend it to my friends!
The cottage was very spacious and in a lovely position with great views to the river. There was lots of room for all seven of us plus Ellie dog. It was well equipped with everything we needed. The area is lovely and peaceful with the quiet beach a short walk away. The Tiki bar/restaurant is also a short walk away and it has an enclosed sandy beach area, ideal for the children to play. We had a fantastic week, very hot weather. great air con in the cottage. We hope to return. The only reason we didn't give five stars is because of the standing water in the enclosed grassed area, which attracted a lot of flies. Cathy was very easy to work with and any issues we had were dealt with promptly. We stayed from July31st for a week
What a wonderful retreat and spectacular find! This property deserves an A+ rating for the cleanliness and ease and comfort of feeling just like home. There were plenty of rooms to relax and unwind in so that we were not on top of each other. My kids especially enjoyed the televisions, while my husband and I enjoyed the one floor living. The owner Cathy was very easy to work with and very responsive. The view and quaint town were enjoyable! Thanks for a memorable vacation.
A family vacation to remember at the Beachcomber III; the newest of the Beachcomber cottages... currently undergoing a complete renovation....it will be ready in June 2014 for its first guests! Our 4 bedroom, 3 bath vacation home, is family and pet 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. It has a fenced courtyard, great for children and pets. Also we feature a gas grill and picnic area; great for crab picking!
