Our 110 acre sanctuary is a peninsula with the Chesapeake Bay to our east and private lakes to our north and south. It features an incredible 1000 feet of private Bay-front beach and over 3000 feet of pristine inner-coastal shoreline - overall, boasting nearly a mile of private, water-front property!

Here, nature is your only neighbor. White sandy beaches, a cozy lagoon, a giant sand dune, and an immense forest provide the perfect habitat for all kinds of wildlife - and lots of family fun. Swim, kayak, hike, bike, fish, catch crabs - explore nature at its best - all on our property! Enjoy a deluxe kids' play set, basketball, volleyball, horseshoes, and many more outdoor and indoor games too.

Spread out in our stunning and spacious 4100 sq. ft. home. Designed by renowned architect, Jim Glave, it enhances your experience with an open floor plan and panoramic views of the Bay. A large screened porch directly off of the kitchen is perfect for dining, entertaining, and relaxing. A rooftop deck provides dramatic and unique views. 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths accommodate up to 14 people. The first floor master suite is extraordinary with a central sky dome, sitting nooks, built-ins, and a lavish bathroom with a separate vanity, two sinks, walk-in shower, and Jacuzzi tub.

Explore our community. Historic Reedville, once considered one of the wealthiest towns in America, has 19th century mansions that will astound you. A fisherman's museum, antique shops, fine restaurants, wineries, and challenging golf courses are also popular attractions.

Come for the peace and privacy. Leave with a better perspective. The Preserve is the perfect Chesapeake Bay experience!

About Bill

We are Northern Virginia natives who cherish convenient getaways to water and woods. We found it on the Chesapeake Bay. The easy commute to a nature-lovers dream located in a folksy, family-oriented community is all we could ask for.

Bill purchased this estate in 2013

Why Bill chose Chesapeake Bay - Northern Neck

The tranquil setting and spectacular views are why we chose this property. We've owned another nearby Bay-front home for two years and continue to enjoy it immensely (VRBO#399839). But this property is different and unique in many ways. We look forward to enjoying and sharing both properties for many years to come.

What makes this estate unique

Peace, privacy, and stunning views - all thanks to nature!

Our family included 4 generations and all were pleased and impressed. A crib for the baby, kayaks and lots of beach for the teenagers, huge kitchen for preparing meals for the parents, and a wonderful master suite for us older folks. Everyone of us enjoyed the screened porch with ample space for playing cards and breathtaking views of the bay! Dolphin and crab watching entertained us all. We plan a return trip!

Better Than We Imagined!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 families were so pleased that our long awaited Family Week turned out to be wonderful and staying at THE PRESERVE was better that we had imagined. The spacious home and grounds were the ideal environment for our 5 active grandkids , ages 2- 8. Everyone settled in and enjoyed the open spaces and porches inside. Because the kitchen is in a wide open area, we all laughed and worked together cooking some delicious meals. The kids loved the fire pit and Grandpa was in charge of our S’mores party. A great deal of time was spent on the beach, in the water and especially learning to kayak. Both 8 year old boys were fantastic and traveled far in the local calm waters. The master suite was double the size of our room at home and the skylights gave us a sense of being out in nature . Even our littlest member played on the playset and the horseshoe games kept the adults busy during the day. For some in our group, it was their first time crabbing and my grandsons learned to be patient while fishing. Overall, we loved every day and every minute we spent relaxing together at the Preserve.

There are just no words for how amazing our week was at this incredible property! First off it is absolutely gorgeous! Everywhere you look is a breathtaking view! The house is absolutely amazing! There is more than enough room for everyone. And the views from every room in the house are absolutely breathtaking! Our entire family was in tears the day that we had to leave! There were so much that we did not get to do. I feel like we could spend a month there and still not see and do it all. My large family has vacationed together for 15 years and this is by far the best home we have rented! We are huge collectors of Seaglass. We found more Seaglass on this property then we typically Find in three trips! The sandbar was just incredible! My son who is a lover of animals had such an amazing time with all of the wildlife! Crabs, turtles, deer, Birds just to name a few. The large front yard made it perfect for the children to run and play. Evenings around the fire pit or absolutely perfect and unforgettable! From my youngest who is 11 months old to my grandparents who are in their 80s, there was something for everyone! Hands-down the most incredible location we have had in 15 years! Counting the days until we are back there again! It just Cannot come fast enough!

Another great stay at this wonderful Chesapeake Bay property

  • 5 of 5

This past weekend, our fishing group stayed, for the second year in a row, at this wonderful property on the Chesapeake Bay, and it was a thoroughly delightful experience once again. The house is amazingly comfortable, well-stocked, and "livable." We love the seclusion, the scenery, the wildlife, and the rustic elegance. It was cool enough, even in late May, to have several fires in the fire-pit by the water, and sitting out looking over the Bay was so peaceful. We watched a box turtle lay her eggs just a few feet from where we sat!

But the best part of the experience has been dealing with Bill, the homeowner. He's been so responsive, completely pleasant and friendly on the phone and through emails, and thoroughly comfortable to interact with. You can't go wrong with this fantastic rental -- we'll definitely be back.

Surpassed all Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We have rented from this owner before and knew we were in for a great stay. The views from this property are nothing less than astounding! You have front row seats to amazing morning sunrises, flashing lighthouse, soaring Eagles and beautiful Chesapeake shore. Great Blue Herons are your neighbors and Wild Turkeys cross the driveway in a hurry. The beach is wonderful, the pond picturesque and the lagoon magnificent. The grandkids loved the kayaking in the lagoon - warm water and shallow sandy bottom. Night fires by the shore in the fire pit will always be remembered. The house was huge and comfortable for everyone - screened porches and decks take in all the views. So quiet, you only hear the wind in the pines and the soft lap of the waves on the shore. If you have a chance to stay here - do not let it pass by. Memories to last a lifetime.

A Magnificent Escape

  • 5 of 5

This year was our second visit to this property, and, because of the cost, I told my family that it would our last time here. But everyone again had such a wonderful time that I’m no longer convinced that’s so. It is expensive, but it’s a roomy house with a wall of windows facing the Bay, and playing in the water, kayaking in Gaskin Pond, the birds, the view, and the privacy make it easy to leave behind day to day minutia. The house is comfortable, and has a stunning master suite, two screened porches, including one tucked away upstairs, and a generous deck overlooking the Bay. The large table in the great room is perfect for puzzles, meals, watching cargo ships and tugs, and enjoying the hummingbirds. There are ample kitchen supplies, and even some pantry items. But it’s the water – the small freshwater pond on one side, the Bay, and then Gaskin Pond on the other side – that really speaks to me. It has been a fabulous place for our three-generation family. Again, thanks so much to Bill for his gracious assistance.
