About Lisa Rudacil

Rudy and I live in Silver Spring, MD, which is less than a two hour drive from Colonial Beach. I have been going to CB since 1986, to visit our friend whose grandparents built a cottage at the Beach before the Gov Harry Nice Bridge was built. There used to be a ferry boat carrying thousands of visitors from DC and Maryland that floated down the Potomac River to the beach. We fell in love with the quiet neighborhood, beautiful sunsets and the restaurants! We decided to buy our cottage as a home away from home.

Lisa Rudacil purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Lisa Rudacil chose Chesapeake Bay - Northern Neck

Our cottage is two houses away from a wonderful view of Monroe Bay, which the locals call the Creek. It's so beautiful in the summer time to take a walk, ride your bike or take a golf cart ride around this part of Colonial Beach. We love our back deck and our large fenced in back yard.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is an original cottages and is really cozy! Dog owners love bringing their companions with them on their trips, which is great, because we have a huge fenced in back yard. Our Four Seasons Cottage takes you back to simpler times, while providing all the comforts that make for a really nice vacation getaway!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comfortable, relaxing vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week in Colonial Beach. Our cottage was clean, comfortable and well-stocked. We will return; and we will select The Four Season's Cottage. It was inviting and relaxing. It it perfect for two to four people. With only one bathroom, five or six would be crowded. The dining area is spacious, but the actual living area is on the small size, but comfty and cozy for a couple or a family of four. We loved the area, a lot of historic attractions, we enjoyed swimming and the beach, good restaurants. We appreciated the small town and very friendly people. Quite different, not a million beach shops and other tourist trappings. Great fireworks on July 4th and enjoyed the live music. Lisa and Rudy were outstanding owners, responded quickly to email questions prior to our visit, and we knew they really wanted us to have a good time and enjoy their home. They made everything easy upon arrival and departure. I have already recommended Colonial Beach and The Four Seasons Cottage to friends and family.

The Four Seasons Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The cottage was a

sweet very clean home.away from home with everything that we needed and more. The caretaker was super sweet and helpful. However if you have a dog don't leave it outside more then 10 minutes because the neighbor sleeps until 10 am. But all in all it was great and we are already planning our next trip.

Owner's Response: Dear Annette, We are thrilled that you had a great time and are planning a return trip to our cottage!! We ask all of our guest's with dog guests to accompany while they are outside in the yard for the majority of the time that they are in the yard, so that they don't feel nervous and bark. Our cottage is in a neighborhood and we hope that everyone is courteous to our neighbors. We are happy when it is a pleasant experience for all!

Nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

Spent the weekend with friends at this charming little cottage in a quiet area of Colonial Beach. It has everything you could think of. The weather was a little cool to take advantage of the large back yard and the back deck with a grill. The house has all the basics and the hosts are very welcoming. They have lots of resources for finding good restaurants and fun outings. All in all we had a lovely stay.

Great little get-away for a family of five - Colonial Beach, VA

  • 4 of 5

This is our second little get-away to Colonial Beach, VA. My husband and I have a very hectic work schedule as well as a hectic school schedule with three young girls. Trip from DC only two hours! We needed a short relaxing get-away and this house, location worked out great. We did have to jump in the car to drive to the beach but it was only about 7 - 8 blocks away. Would have preferred a walking distance house but wasn't a big deal. House was very pleasant, simple, had everything we needed and was clean. It was a tight fit but the weather worked out for us and the backyard was huge! Little deck outside and indoor sun room in the front really was key! One bathroom with five of us was a tiny issue BUT no drama. Bedrooms were fine and worked nicely. I would book again! Nice having beach chairs provided and wash/dryer BUT no dishwasher. Big dinners? Bring paper products...a lot easier. Kitchen was well stocked and equipped. Look forward to next year!
