Weather

Virginia weather has a bit of everything. There is the occasional snowstorm to be experienced in the winter, but temperatures during that season are generally mild in comparison to D.C. or places north. The summer brings humid and warm temperatures, but highs rarely get above 90 degrees, with comfortable overnight lows in abundance.

Williamsburg is surprisingly accessible from all surrounding areas, including Tidewater and Hampton Roads. You can travel her easily by private car if you live in the neighboring states of Tennessee or North Carolina. For those you choose to fly, Richmond International Airport is a great option, where you can then rent a car and be inside Williamsburg proper inside of 90 minutes.

Located directly across the James River from Jamestown & Busch Gardens, we enjoyed taking the free ferry across the river to the Williamsburg & Jamestown attractions. The private beach with gentle surf & warm water was so enjoyable for us and our 3 kids....not to mention the kayaks and canoe provided! The beach is also ripe with the biggest whole clam & oyster shells I've ever seen. It has such a magical feel! The house itself was so comfortable for our family of 5. We enjoyed sitting on the deck together or eating at the picnic table on the covered porch. The owners are so friendly and helpful and added extra comforts with extra toiletries, snacks, & wine upon arrival. The only 2 negatives I could say are that it is on a gravel road that made using a navigation system difficult when we were first arriving but most great places are off the beaten path, right? The only other surprise was that the property is situated high off the river on a small cliff so there are 60 steps down to the water. It really didn't bother us but a good thing to know if you're bringing small children. We loved our visit so much that we think we'll come again... Maybe even retire to the area. So much natural beauty, truly a treasure.

The owner is a bit new at this, so there were a few bumps in the road, but they resolved quickly. The TV is very l difficult to operate as you need about a half page of instructions which they will be providing to next guest. Please note that there is no internet and no amenities from the resort also. We really enjoyed our stay. Morgan has been managing this property and she was very responsive and helpful.

The owner has added so many small touches to this home that everyday we found ourselves finding something new to talk about. The collection of DVDs, the magazines, the champagne at our arrival, the fresh fruit and cereal she left us... just an amazing little waterfront home that felt like ours. I wanted to add that my husband and I were really hesitant about our stay, mostly because we're really active, love having things close by, and we love the DC city life because of that. But we had things planned everyday, the Go Ape Zip line adventures and Colonial Williamsburg. So everyday we came home really tired and as soon as we stepped in we felt peace overcome us. We played chess and watched some movies we had never seen from the movie stash (thank you Carol). We stopped by the local restaurant (Surry Seafood Co) and enjoyed some drinks close by. The ferry was a great experience but definitely wouldn't want to cross back and forth multiple times in one day. But we loved our slow days and we loved Carol's hospitality. We rarely say the words, "we want to go back" but Carol's home is definitely on our list. Thank you, for sharing your charming home. You made it feel like ours for three unforgettable, peaceful, and beautiful days away from the bustle of DC.
