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 back yard.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is an original cottages and is really cozy! Our Four Seasons Cottage takes you back to simpler times, while providing all the comforts that make for a really nice vacation getaway! Bike Fest Oct 5-8th.

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.

Wonderful stay at Four Seasons Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our few days in the quiet golf cart town of Colonial Beach. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well-stocked. It has a cute beachy feel and the owners are very attentive to your needs. The cottage has everything we needed including Wifi and outdoor space!

The area is refreshing , calm, and has lots to do, the owners have a lot of suggestions of what to do and where to eat in a book for the guests.

I hope everyone has as good a trip as we did!

A lovely place to relax

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely cottage. The owners are attentive and have included many small touches to make your time in their home comfortable. The deck and the backyard catch breezes from both the river and small bay. It is definitely a walkable, bike-able community. The cottage is small but cozy, ideal for a couple or small group. My husband and I are geezers and could have used a railing on one side of the steps going up to the deck but it was a minor concern.

We found Colonial Beach's Sage Bakery--baked goods home-made, yum! and the Art of Coffee in Montross, worth the drive. To pick fruit--Westmoreland Berry Farm or just sit in the rocking chairs and rest your eyes on the lovely farm (goats to feed, too!) This is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the DC area and only a 90 minute drive!!!!

Owner's Response: Adding a railing next to the deck steps is a great idea! We are always updating our cottage to make it more comfortable and to keep it cozy. We advertise that we are small, cozy cottage, original to Colonial Beach. We are really glad that you enjoyed your stay and the town of Colonial Beach and even gave us a new place to try out in Montross. Thank you for being our guests! Lisa and Rudy

Great location. Comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed 12 days and had a very enjoyable time. More people would be tight because there is only one small bathroom. The owners were very responsive and answered our questions. We especially appreciated the new beach chairs and umbrellas. Also - a new BBQ grill. It's a homey place with a comfortable bed and is fairly well equipped. Thank you!
