Best Vacation

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We came in for a weekend visit to participate in the triathlon. We were looking for a place that would allow us to bring our pup along. The cottage is nice and very well kept. It was clean and cool when we arrived. The furniture was comfortable and the porches were nice to sit on and relax. We highly recommend and will come back again next year.

Within Steps to the Beach

  • 4 of 5

This immaculate cottage is closely located near the beach and extremely quiet at night. Beautiful hardwood floors, tastefully furnished, kitchen open to family room so if you cook you are right with the family and the fenced yard is well manicured. Honestly, we have stayed in many properties throughout the U.S.. and this is by far one of best maintained properties. If I had to say anything negative about the property, I woul not say anything negative about the house itself. To be 100% honest, thiis beach itself is not one of my favs. Quieter than VA or Ocean City, disliked the beach restaurants and shops right next to the beach as it was a tad noisy. We prefer to walk barefoot a long stretch in the sand soaking in the beauty of the beach without a bunch of rocks between our toes and listening to music. With that said, if this house was in another location we would definitely stay there again.

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!
