Overview

About the property

Cozy one bedroom cottage on riverfront property on lovely Ware Neck.

Come and spend your vacation in this quiet, peaceful setting on the Ware River. The estate boasts 290 ft of shoreline. This charming and historic 2 story cottage sits on 7 acres located on the Ware Neck Peninsula. The cottage has hand hewn post and beam construction dating to approximately the 1790s. There are fireplaces in both the living room and bedroom. There are ceiling fans in the bedroom and on the front porch. Just in front of the cottage is the restored icehouse built in the late 18th century and used to store blocks of ice brought from up north by steamboats down the Chesapeake Bay. The water front is a short stroll and has a pier with a floating dock. This is a perfect spot for watching beautiful sunsets while enjoying a glass of wine, fishing, crabbing or launching your canoe or kayak. The Cottage is 70 min from Richmond or Norfolk, 2 hours from DC, 45 min from Williamsburg, 30 min from Yorktown and 20 minutes to the Arts community of Matthews. It provides a great home base for exploring this beautiful and diverse region of Virginia.

Beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this beautiful and historic cottage. Great location close to Gloucester, Yorktown, and the Northern Neck on waterfront property. Cottage has all of the modern conveniences while retaining all of its old world charm. Could not have been nicer or easier. Enjoy!

The "Middle Cottage" at Glebefield is just beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here before, so no surrprises. We came back because it is a beautiful area and there is much to see and do. It's a very comfortable cottage. The owners truly want you to have an enjoyable stay and are great hosts.

Summertime Couple Retreat

Lovely cottage and surrounding area. Peaceful and quiet. Cottage has everything you need, just bring food. Must see historical battlefield and museums in nearby Yorktown, Jamestown, and Colonial Williamsburg.

The cottage was perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was a great place to come back to so we could unwind after our days out. It was also a perfect location. We would definitely recommend it!

Charming and very comfortable cottage surrounded by history.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. We found the cottage to be just what we needed for a trip to attend a wedding in nearby Gloucester Court House.

The weather prevented us from taking full advantage of the river and the surrounding history. We plan to return and base explorations of Yorktown from your charming accommodations. It was everything we hoped for and more.

Thanks for sharing your cottage with the world.

A great stay.

  • 5 of 5

The grounds were beautiful. The croaker were biting and we had fun exploring Gloucester and Gwynn Island. Everyone was so friendly. We also visited the American Revolution Museum in Yorktown, just 30 minutes away. Just one note, if guests are challenged by stairs, then realize that the partially spiral staircase can be difficult.

The trees were beyond amazing. We enjoyed the Ospreys feeding their young, and saw bald eagles. You can make this an adventure or just chill in this incredible setting.

We are in a lovely rural setting and yet close enough to Yorktown, Jamestown and Williamsburg to enjoy all they have to offer including historical tours, amusement parks,

Farmers markets and fine dining.
