Guestbook comments from the owner
We were looking for a relaxing waterfront getaway that was quiet, yet still had nearby activities. This place was perfect!! We spent part of each day exploring the area, but returned in the afternoon to enjoy the beach here, and spend time on the porch watching boats and the birds. Caught a few fish too!!

Thank you for a lovely stay.

This cabin has been in my family since 1941. It was being built by my grandfather and his 3 sons(my father was 7 at the time) when Pearl Harbor was being bombed. So it has a lot of memories in it for my family. My husband and I bought it from my 2 uncles in 1991 and now share 2/3 ownership with my dad. We have refurbished it and updated it without taking away the beautiful memories of the history. You can still see the handprints on the A- frame wood ceiling from where they had to place each piece.

This cabin means a lot to me and my family and we look forward to sharing it with you!

SERENITY

loved this place! was as described and just so serene and privately peaceful. Owners are wonderful and we would recommend this property. The RiverView Restaurant and the EggHead Diner were great to enjoy a meal. Everything is close by and the owners were great! We can't wait to come back again!

RELAXED AND ENCHANTED WHERE THE U.S. ALL BEGAN....SO SURREAL!

  • 5 out of 5
First thank you for allowing others to enjoy this fantastic property. You are very accommodating and friendly. Everything was neat and we had all that was needed for a lovely stay. The cabin was spacious and unique. The views and beach gives the best gift of all to expand your mind....loved it! The location is close to everything, grocery, post office, fitness center, but being at the end of the road and across from the park felt very private. Being right on the point of were the battles took place was amazing and learning our history made me understand so much. Loved Yorktown Pub and that whole scene directly across the river. I was so impressed!! We would return.

WONDERFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 out of 5
The ladies and I had a wonderful Pre-Mothers day vacation. Friday evening we had dinner on the deck and watched a beautiful sunset. Saturday we walked Main Street in Gloucester and had a wonderful time. There are great shops to poke around in.

COZY CABIN GETAWAY WAS VERY ENJOYABLE

  • 5 out of 5
This Cozy Cabin Getaway was very nice, relaxing, as well as, comfortable.

The owners were very accommodating.

Although the water was still very cold, due to it being early season, we had a very pleasant stay.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 out of 5
WOW!

This was a cabin meant for relaxing and enjoying the stay in Virginia. My wife and I Had a great time.

It has everything you need to make yourself feel at home. Great views of the York River. Great people and great enviroment.

Close enough to civilization but seems like your xdeep in the country because it is so quiet and peaceful.

I recommend this Paradise to All!

The memories last forever and I hope we can make another trip to the Resort this Summer.

Thanks So Much,
Mike and Misty Johnson

Notes:
There is a public boat launch less than 1 mile away and room to park a trailer at cabin. There is no dock at this time,but can secure in front of property by anchor. Use is at your own risk. The landscaping is a constant work in progress. There is a queen size sleep sofa in the living room for extra guests or the kids and a single fold out cot. A 32' HDTV in the main room and a small TV in the bedroom.. Some kids games. The electric fire logs in the fireplace, can be used without heat year round for ambience. The cabin is on a hill.There are 21 steps from the private parking area, but we also now have made a driveway up to the cabin, so now there are just about 4 steps to the walkway.Much easier access to the front door!! There is a table, 4 chairs, with cushions, and an umbrella on the deck for eating outside. There is a set of wicker chairs and cushions on the porch for just relaxing and taking in the view. And the Beautiful Sunsets! WOW!!
