Overview

About the property

A Restored Authentic Fisherman's Cottage With Pleasing Decor And Great Location

From the front porch of the Sunrise Cottage enjoy a 180 degree view of the Potomac River while rocking your cares away! Watch the sun rise between your toes from the larger bedroom's french doors. Sit inside in a sun-filled front room with large windows in gliding chairs or in the afternoon or evening on a comfy sofa and basket chairs in the back family room. With a good-sized kitchen and two bedrooms, this cottage is a perfect place to stay for two couples. You'll love it's cheery beachy decor and some original features (hardwood floor, paneled doors, metal kitchen cabinets).

The Potomac River, which is 4 miles wide at this location, can be viewed inside through large windows or outside from the front porch or from a bench at the river's edge. During your relaxing stay at our cottage, wake up to sunrise over the river and then enjoy your morning coffee on the front porch as you watch osprey and cormorants fish for their breakfast. Then hop on a bike* and take an easy, scenic 3-mile ride along the river and bayside. Or jump in your rented golf cart to tool into town to a quaint shop or family-run restaurant -- no chain stores here! A 10-minute walk or a 2-minute bike ride will bring you into town to the public beach, town fishing pier, visitor's center, marina or museum. Nearby wineries, historic sites and parks provide opportunities for other daytime activities. Nighttime activities range from star-gazing and wine/tapa sampling at The Tide's Market to tiki bar hopping and casino gambling at The Riverboat. (Click "more details" to read further.)

If this cottage appeals to you, you may want to also check out our other river-front cottage which is a few blocks away. It is called The Coral Cottage, property #3782422, and it can accommodate 2 people.

* Bicycles can be provided upon request

About John Lozinyak

My wife and I have spent the last 3 decades getting to know Colonial Beach and growing to love its slower pace and unique charm. Although we have experience with rentals through our work, The Sunrise Cottage is our second vacation rental home. We have had a great experience for the past couple years with our first vacation rental -- The Coral Cottage. We've met some really nice people and everyone has been very respectful of our property and appreciative of our efforts!

John Lozinyak purchased this cottage in 2010

Why John Lozinyak chose Chesapeake Bay - Northern Neck

We have worked to restore this cottage, attempting to keep its best features and at the same time opening up its interior by removing some walls and expanding its exterior views and natural light by replacing smaller windows with larger ones.

What makes this cottage unique

We think the cottage is in an ideal location with it's river frontage and quieter setting... yet convenient to the amenities of the town.

Colonial Beach

Colonial Beach is a golf-cart community with a retro 1940's/50's feel and beachy look. It appeals to young couples, families, and retired folks who appreciate quaintness and want to avoid the cookie-cutter beach resort scene. It's great for biking and walking within the town, fishing and boating on the river and visiting parks (historic and otherwise) and wineries nearby. Local businesses provide opportunities for shopping (antique/thrift/consignment shops), dining out (restaurants, coffee shop, gourmet markets), and entertainment (tiki bars, gambling casino, special events).

Lovely cottage -- I wish it were mine!

  • 5 of 5

A great cottage with just about everything one could need. My daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Although Mother Nature didn't fully cooperate with more than a couple of days of beach weather, the porch with it's great view and wonderful breezes more than made up for it. Watching the lightning storm over the river was amazing. If you want a relaxing break, this is the cottage for it.

Perfect for our weekend trip

  • 5 of 5

We came into the area for a wedding in King George. Colonial Beach was not even a 10 min drive away from our wedding destination. I stayed at the cottage with the husband and two small kids (6 and 10). We had some relaxing time at the cottage but we mostly enjoyed hoping around town to some local eats, the beach and some shopping. The cottage is adorable -- the perfect little cottage for our family get away. They had all the amenities we needed and much more. The home owners definitely cater to the needs of the travelers (activity, restaurant and shopping information, etc. -- it's all at your finger tips). I would definitely return if I was in the area.

Cute and Calming Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage sits right across the road from being able to watch the boat traffic as well as the sun rise and set. The cottage is charming. And the decor is lovely. They have thought about everything you could possibly need or want. John was a dear and hooked up the toilet in the second bathroom even though he was in the midst of a renovation! It certainly came in handy as we had kids visiting throughout the weekend. John was very easy to work with and extremely attentive if we had any questions. All of us had a great relaxing weekend. We will be back!
