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.

The cottage was charming. The views from the pier was stunning. John and Peg's hospitality made us feel welcome.
We crabbed, fished, canoed and boated.
Most important were the memories made with my wife, niece and daughter.
Recently stayed 2 nights at this lovely cottage whilst visiting my daughter in Gloucester. Tucked away from the main road, this cottage is so cozy! It just begs you to sit down and put your feet up and read one of the many books provided or listen to wonderful CD music from the vast selection provided. Cottage is well stocked with dishes, etc in the kitchen for cooking up a meal.
The bed upstairs is so downy soft that I slept fitfully which isn't always the case when I'm away from home. Peaceful, serene, a short walk to the river dock and obviously so well cared for...what more could you want? I plan to go back! Book it..you won't be disappointed!
My husband and I stayed here for our 10th wedding anniversary and fell in love with this cottage. It has all the amenities you need, the owners are really nice and welcoming. It was wonderful to walk around the property and see the gardens and being able to use the kayaks at our leisure. We hope to visit here again soon!
We enjoyed our two day trip here. The cottage is absolutely beautiful!! perfect for a nice quite getaway. I highly recommend it and will definitely be coming back :)
We loved our stay!
We couldn't have been more comfortable at Glebefield Cottage! Its bucolic setting, right on the Ware River, was perfect for our family while we explored the historic area. It's very close to Jamestown and Williamsburg, offered its own historic setting, and was a wonderful place to come back to and relax after a day of exploring. Margaret was very kind, responsive and generous. Thank you so very much!
A lovely, quiet place to enjoy a long weekend. Clean and comfortable. Thanks for a pleasant stay, and for letting our furry friend join us!
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.
