The perfect, quiet river front cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage at Captain's Watch is "as advertised". Beautifully appointed and in immaculate condition, we found it to be exactly what we were looking for in a getaway cottage on the shores the Potomac River. It is an easy walk from an assortment of excellent dining establishments and the art gallery in Colonial Beach. An excellent value by any measure. The proprietors are friendly, helpful, and a wealth of information about the local area. We will definitely be back.

Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

I was in the area six weeks for work. It was perfectly furnished for my stay and made being away from home for an extended time very enjoyable. The owners are very accommodating. Could not have had a better experience. Hope to visit again for pleasure. We will definitely look up this cottage.

Wonderful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband, I & our 6 mo old daughter stayed here for a long weekend in October. The cottage was very nice, accurately described (having a washing machine was awesome with the baby!). John was very helpful, but respectful of our privacy. The weather was perfect for strolling the streets and beach...a little too cold for the water tho! Overall, a wonderful long weekend!

Wonderful and Peaceful!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a first for me to be at Colonial Beach, but now after staying at this cozy waterfront getaway I know that I will return. The cottage is just as it is on the site well decorated and cared for. How nice to have a washer and dryer! It was so awesome staying there...it was relaxing, peaceful, safe and being across the street from the water was so very nice. Great streets to walk, great little town to walk around. Friendly people, and even though I did not eat out I did order in and cooked. The owner was a very nice person and I look forward to being there again and getting to know him better. The overall experience was WONDERFUL! I always use VRBO when I travel and I've not been let down over the years. I will return to Colonial Beach and to this cottage. By the way the landscaping is gorgeous and the little porch is great for coffee and to just watch the world go by.
