About Andi Gabler

Hi!

My husband and I walked into The Yellow Door cottage last year and I fell in love with it! I always wanted to own a little beach cottage and this one spoke to me.

We purchased The Yellow Door in February 2013 and began working on it immediately. The cottage was totally renovated. New paint throughout, granite counter tops, new stove, tankless water heater, and big storage unit in the kitchen for dishes, food, etc. The bathroom floor was replaced with retro looking ceramic tile and granite topped with a vessel that looks pretty beachie to me! The bedroom was totally remodeled; removing the large closet and replacing it with a large IKEA wardrobe. A new queen size antique iron bed replaced the double bed and a small TV was included on the wall. The not so new door to the bedroom will be replaced with a period 'french' door soon; maybe by the time you arrive! The large glass panes will be covered in rice paper to provide privacy while letting light pass through.

The cottage has ceilings that are just shy of 10', giving that very open feeling. It's bright (4 windows in the living room alone!) and a window in every other room, including the hallway.

We've had a great time renovating this property and will be working on the yard, which is soooo large and prime for planting wonderful flowers and shrubs. Planned for the future is a screen room for summer meals and a hammock for napping! There is a lot of work to do in the yard.

There is a lot of space for parking your cars, jet skis, and boats, and we're working on killing the weeds and getting the gravel back in the driveway. We're almost there. All the gravel has been removed that covered the sidewalk in front of the cottage.

Please join us in loving this little cottage as much as we love it! It is very sweet and we've had the best time (Ok, I probably had more fun than Paul) renovating!

Enjoy!

Why Andi Gabler chose Colonial Beach

If you're traveling as a couple or with 1 or 2 children, why rent something large that you don't need? The Yellow Door Cottage only has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom (with tub) and has a comfortable, queen-size sofa bed in the living room. Everything in the cottage was just renovated, so clean, clean, clean.

There is lots of room in the driveway for your jet skis and parking, which is always at a premium at the beach. We are within walking distance of everything on the beach.

Located on the Point, you can see the Potomac River and Monroe Bay from the porch in the Fall/Winter, and from the sidewalk during the Summer. And, you can walk to the cute restaurants and shops. We're a block away from The Lighthouse Restaurant with Thai French food to die for!

If cute is what you're looking for, this is the place!

What makes this cottage unique

Parking, parking, parking! If you've been to Colonia Beach, you know how tough it is to park. The Yellow Door Cottage has great off-street parking for cars, jet skis, or a boat.

Located on the Point, we're within walking distance of everything that is happening during the summer. This is the place to be for location and comfort!

Yellow Door and More!

  • 5 out of 5
What a darling cottage! For a small place, Yellow Door has everything you need and more! This cottage is beautifully decorated, very clean and conveniently located near the public beach and downtown restaurants. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch, waving to passers-by and chatting with locals and weekenders - everyone is so friendly! We will most definitely be staying at Yellow Door again! PS - The beds, including the sofa bed, are VERY comfortable!

Beautiful Cottage

  • 4 out of 5
The yellow door cottage was a pleasure to stay in. It is a very well kept property with every detail thought of. The surrounding town was very quiet for a beach town which was not quite what we expected but the cottage itself was wonderful! Everything was very convenient to get to. Thank you for sharing your beach home with us. -The Lyon Family

Amazing Weekend In CB

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great memorial weekend stay at the Yellow Door Cottage. It was perfect for my boyfriend and I and I was amazed by truly how perfect our visit was. This property was the best we've ever rented. The location is prime for everything in colonial beach and it was nice to be able to walk anywhere (lighthouse restaurant - thai, yum!, dennison's grocery and the beach for a start). The cottage itself was quaint, cozy and a wonderful place to call a home away from home with every amenity you'd need. The bed was super comfortable & Andi didn't cut a single corner with this remodel. We'll absolutely be back! I highly recommend you stay here if visiting the area - you certainly won't regret it. :)

THE PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 out of 5
The Yellow Door is a true reflection of the owners personality, absolutely charming. The owners have thought of everything one might need to enjoy their stay. The bed and the sofa bed are so comfortable! Always had plenty of hot water for showers. The cottage is ideally located in the heart of Colonial Beach. It's an easy walk to everything. No golf cart needed, unless you want to add the charm to your adventure. I highly recommend an early morning jog/walk along the east shore as well as an after dinner dip at the beach. Gorgeous! Denson's had a great burger and the ice cream is as good as everyone says. If you have kids or feel a bit artistic, Pottery by Hand is worth a visit. Hannah,the owner, treated us like family and set us up with one of her personal classes. Actually, everyone we encountered was really friendly. Right down to the cashier at Dollar General who had a discussion with me on eating an oreo. He made me smile. Colonial beach and the Yellow Door was just what we needed to get away.

All That and More

  • 5 out of 5
I actually stayed for two months and I could not have been any happier with my choice as I looked at several homes to fit my needs for my mini-sabbatical. The amenities, layout of the home and pictures provided on the site are spot on of what one would expect when they arrive. The property was clean and had updated appliances and furnishings throughout. Andi and her husband were readily available via phone or email if a question arose or if you were to lock yourself out of the home...yes, I admit it. There is however, a convenient lockbox on the porch with a spare key that saved the day. The area of Colonial Beach is very friendly, peaceful and laid back. I enjoyed the food a Dennisons Market on several occasions...it's a family affair and you'll feel right at home. My best times were spent on the porch in the mornings with my coffee and book or walks along the beach watching the sunrise. The sunsets on the bayside this time of year are just as spectacular too. I would definitely recommend the Yellow Door Cottage! Thanks a million Andi and family. This is definitely what I needed and you were great to work with. D Fleming

AMAZING BEACH COTTAGE !

  • 5 out of 5
I took my husband to the Little Yellow Door Cottage for his birthday weekend getaway. I had never been to Colonial Beach and had no idea what to expect. Suffice it to say.... I WAS THRILLED :) This cottage was quaint, charming, cozy and more than adequately stocked for all of our needs for the visit. It was conveniently located close to the Pier/Beach and everything in town that we needed while we were there. I can't imagine staying anywhere else at Colonial Beach any time we go back (and we definitely will).... Andi has done a GREAT job on this remodel ... great little getaway... I highly recommend this location without any reservation.
