Nice place near the beach
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and had just about everything we needed. Pete was great and answered any questions I had. There are quite a few restaurants within walking distance of the house and almost everyone in Colonial Beach is very friendly. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again given the chance.
Glad you enjoyed the house and your stay. Thank you.
Just what I was looking for!
I stayed for little over 3 months. I am a traveling nurse and found this cute little cottage in which I fell in love with! Perfect yard for my dog! Great location: walking distance to restaurants, the boardwalk, and so much more. Loved looking at the river each day! Pete was very easy to work with and responded very quickly to questions/concerns. If I am ever back in Colonial Beach, I will definitely stay here again!
Cozy, well decorated cottage, extremely comfy beds, close to everything and owners provide tons of extras - beach toys, margarita glasses and matches and candles! Will book again.
Comfortable place in a very quiet town.
We stayed for six weeks in May & June and enjoyed it! The house is comfortable and clean. Probably better suited for a shorter stay, but we made it work fine. We have a kayak and could carry it by hand to put in no problem. The neighborhood is extremely quiet — even on a holiday weekend, it was not busy. For us, the only hitch was that the queen bed is extremely soft, which is not our preference, but certainly may be for others. The twin beds are quite firm.
My family and I love visiting Colonial Beach, the town isn't over developed and more like stepping back in time. Alot of mom and pop businesses and the people are very friendly. The cottage was in a fabulous area and walking distance to everything, yet very peaceful and quiet. We rented a golf cart for the weekend and toured the area every day. We ate at Dockside Restaurant (Yum) and ate at Hunan Diner (which as great as well), the owner was hilarious. The cottage is 3 houses from the water. The beach is pretty private and just used by people who live on the street. The cottage was immaculate and had everything we needed for our stay. The master bed was amazing, felt like a temperpedic mattress- :) The kids enjoyed the wi-fi at night time, had i known that the property was fulled enclosed with a fence i would have brought our dog- he would've loved it. We will definitely be booking this property again. Everything was perfect !!
Clean, Comfortable, and a Great Location
The place is just as advertised. Before we even got there, Pete was a great host and provided all the information we needed. Upon arrival the house was clean and ready for us. It's a good size for 4 adults and even comes with a few board games and books. There was a central HVAC, window units for both bedrooms, and ceiling fans in pretty much every room so beating the heat was no problem. Also the beds and furniture were all comfortable and adequately fit the space. The house also has decent outdoor space with a small wood deck with a few patio chairs and a fenced in grass yard. Although, a warning for future visits, there were a lot of mosquitoes so be sure to bring the bug spray or citronella candles with you.
The location is really nice. It's set on a quiet side street about 3 houses in from the water. The house is very conveniently located within walking distance to just about everything. You can easily walk to the beach, just about all of the restaurants, and even back inland to the 7-11 or Food Lion. Before arriving we had considered renting a golf cart, but in hindsight it would have been wasted money since everything was about a 5-10 minute walk away.
We were pleased with our visit and would definitely stay again. Thanks for a great stay Pete.
Quiet waterfront, golf cart community on Potomac River just over an hour from Washington, DC.; an hour from Richmond, VA. Beautifully maintained sandy beach and marinas with great amenities. Some of the best crab cakes you'll find anywhere with live music available most weekend nights at some of the friendliest watering holes. This is a fantastic little town that's close enough to DC to make it a perfect weekend getaway, and far enough away to leave your stress behind and relax. You can walk to almost everything in town and there's plenty to do for all ages. Great Gourmet food shops, antique and specialty shops, classic car shows, old fashioned ice cream and a wonderful coffee shop!
