      Splendid Vacation

      My family and I had a wonderful time staying at this marvelous cottage. The cottage was perfectly situated to provide the privacy needed for a leisurely and restful stay, but also close enough to Williamsburg and its surroundings to provide easy access to the many wonderful historical sites and amenities the area offers. If the cottage and its environs were not enough, our landlords for the week were the very best hosts for which one could hope. They showed exceptional care and concern for us and our well-being, and did their best to ensure that we had the very best experience. Highly recommended!

      5/5 Excellent

        Nice quaint and quiet out of way place. Great views of river and wildlife. Close access to area attr

        Very relaxed and enjoyable.

        5/5 Excellent

          Very enjoyable vacation

          The property is very well kept and its location on a private island makes it a very enjoyable place to vacation. It is close to one of the most important historic areas in our country. We took day trips mostly but would have enjoyed just being on the island. The owners were very kind and helpful. We hope to return in the future. For us, one week is not enough.

          5/5 Excellent

            Quiet retreat on the water

            This is a really nice property if you like a quiet place to stay near the water. The cabin has great views of the York River. There's plenty of comfortable furniture and it's well stocked for a small family/group getaway. The location is great, too - just a few minutes off the highway, with plenty of commercial areas nearby. There's local dining, chain dining, fast food; small shops, big shops, big-box shops, etc, etc. It's just a few minutes to Yorktown and half an hour to Williamsburg, Busch Gardens, etc, so there's plenty of tourism nearby as well. Our stay was scheduled just after Hurricane Dorian passed by. By mutual agreement, we delayed the start of our visit a day to make sure the storm surge didn't cause problems getting to the island. The owners refunded us for the missed day - which they were under no obligation to do. That's the sort of thing that breeds repeat customers.
