About this property

Get-a-way River House

Are you looking for a convenient and comfortable beach getaway? To get here it only takes us a few minutes from Williamsburg and there are no tunnels and the Colonial Parkway rarely has any road rage drivers or traffic jams like those found on the interstate or 158 to Nags Head. Whether you like to play on the sand beach, bask in the sun, sit in a swing, lay in a hammock, go crabbing, fishing, or boating, or curl up with a good book or sack out with a good movie, Getaway has it all. With a newly upgraded well system and furnishings including new pillows, you will be comfortable as well as relaxed at The Getaway. Gloucester is still a community that feels like a small town, much like Nags Head in the early 80's, with lots of local shops and local restaurants, but still has some nice franchises and chain restaurants if you are not but so adventurous. Traditionally rented by the week, we can make special arrangements for a weekend or split week. Do you have family coming to town? Why not put them up here?

4/5 Good

Great value

Greg was very easy to work with. The place was really nice. We enjoyed it very much. Kids had a great time.


Our stay

The property is beautiful , the home is very nice . Check in was easy , there were no cleaning supplies so we were not able to get portion of deposit back but over all the property was amazing .

5/5 Excellent

Great experience

We had great experience. Kids liked to play on the beach and fires. We also caught some crabs.

5/5 Excellent

Great waterfront location.

We used the house as home base for day trips to Richmond and Yorktown. We wished had more days to go elsewhere this trip. My wife especially liked the York River waterfront. We actually saw a dolphin close to shore one evening!

4/5 Good

Mixed Bag

Property is as advertised- many nooks and crannies to explore, plenty of space, and bathrooms galore! The property manager is accessible and easy to work with- very responsive to messages, questions, and requests. We enjoyed the space, river access, and amenities during our stay. We had some difficulty with the uneven floor plan and low ceilings in spaces and lawn maintenance was needed. Overall, a great place for our vacation and met our needs and expectations.
