About Shannon French
When I was 27 years old, I decided to sell real estate. Shortly after at the age of 29, I decided to open my own brokerage, Southern Trade Realty (Oct. 2006 so you do the math to see how old I am now)! I quickly learned to combine my passion for designing, creating and decorating to another level. I started to invest in real estate at a very young age, and I am still very passionate about it. I really enjoy getting to know my guests and proud to say I now have repeat business. I concentrate on making sure my guests are happy and I take pride in the comfort of my properties and of course, the decor has to be just right. Feel free to call me Shannon 804-815-1912.

Why Shannon French chose Schley
This area is where I personally grew up. I remember the days on the river at a very young age. I fished, crabbed, learned how to swim, relax, kayak, explore and I am still enjoying all of this today with my family and friends.
What makes this Cottage unique
Pictures cannot even describe this property (many of our guests say this once they arrive). It is one of the most serene places to be. Listening to the waves crash up against the rocks at night, taking a nap in the hammock on a warm summer afternoon, to watching the Osprey on the river, there is not a better place to enjoy nature at it's best. It is all at your fingertips.

Mom's 61st birthday getaway
Perfect. My daughters and I were thrilled with the property. Beautiful, immaculate home with a gorgeous view from every room in the house.
Great views, cozy atmosphere! Will return
Relaxing weekend in Schley
Thank you for opening up your home to allow others to enjoy it. We loved staying in your beautiful home in Schley. We especially enjoyed sitting on the porch with our coffee in the morning watching the sun rise - BEAUTIFUL! My sister and niece enjoyed the hot tub after our long day of activities and sightseeing in Williamsburg. We look forward to coming back again - soon!
Relax, breathe, heal in beautiful surroundings
Stunning property. This home is thoughtfully designed and situated to capture best views from all around. My husband and I escaped for just a few days in celebration of our 30th anniversary and once here, we didn't want to leave. I especially appreciated the panoramic windows in the master suite; the views, the fresh air, the sound of the water hitting shore below, and the shade of the pine tree made it feel as though we were sleeping outside. Plenty of room for the yoga mat. My husband spent hours fishing from the private pier, and we enjoyed the kayaks each day. We seemed to be the only ones on the water for as far as we could see! It was completely private and incredibly peaceful and spacious. A nearby market had fresh produce and seafood, so it was an easy choice to cook in and enjoy the sunsets and hot tub. The comfortable seating areas were well designed to capture sunrises and sunsets. This house was very clean and had everything we could possibly need, so there were no bothersome distractions from our retreat. Thank you Shannon for a wonderful, very healing and much needed escape. You are obviously a pro at this!
Above and Beyond
This home exceeded our expectations. We have stayed in many homes over the years for vacation and we can easily say that this was the best equipped and appointed home we have stayed in. In addition to the usual; cork screw, pans, spatulas, coffee makers, etc., what we really appreciated was the high-end feel of generous air conditioning and consistent, predictable wifi. Despite the fact that we spent most hours outside of the home on the beautiful property out in kayaks and fishing off of the pier, coming in to a cool clean home each day was luxurious.
The location is remote, but the general store is a landmark and has any bit or bob you might need. And Gloucester is rich in history if you can pull yourself away from the idyllic setting on the river. We enjoyed some of the creamiest ice cream ever at the Short Lane Ice Cream Co and delicious donuts at Sunrise Doughnuts.
Shannon, the owner, was friendly, accessible and responded quickly to inquiries.
This is a 5 star getaway!
Place to relax
We were wanting to relax and get away for our anniversary. This was the place! Watching the wildlife and being right on the water was awesome! The home is beautiful and the owner is great to work with. We highly recommend this rental!
