Relaxing and quiet comfortable house to spend the holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place that my grandaughter, fiance and us could just relax and spend time together. A shore thing was perfect. In addition we had a beautiful view of the water and wildlife. The kitchen had everything I needed to make our Thanksgiving dinner, we just brought the groceries. We were close enough to spend a day in Fredriksburg and several interesting small towns in the area. The owner met us when we arrived and it was a simple after of getting keys and iformation about the house. A great place to stay, cute and very clean.

Perfect Waterfront Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spent a weekend at this lovely property, and hope to be able to go back again. Perfect setting - right on the Maddox Creek with fabulous views. Saw eagles, hawks and heron and enjoyed the natural surroundings. Spent a little time in the center of town in Colonial Beach and explored the beachfront and a few local shops. Not very busy during the off season, and we liked it. The house itself was impeccably clean, well stocked and ready for our visit. David was very accommodating with our arrival and departure, and we are thankful that they shared this lovely home.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a long weekend. Everything about the process was top-notch. David met us there to give us the lay of the land and, if he hadn't, we could have easily managed as everything is clearly marked. He also answered our questions regarding dining in the area. Unfortunately, we didn't listen. Stupid! Also, for those that are familiar with house rentals, this place lacked nothing. Just bring your food and beverages and you're all set. Honestly, this was likely the best rental I've stayed in.

100% Perfection in Everyway!

  • 5 of 5

We rent an average of 10 properties a year and A Shore Thing was by far the best of all we’d ever seen! We’ve been trying to rent A Shore Thing for over a year now, but, it was always booked. Now that we’ve been there, we know why!

From the inside, the cottage is luxuriously furnished and in excellent condition. Everything looks and functions as good as new! The kitchen had everything we could think of and more. The silverware drawer had a double sliding tray for an extra touch of pampering and convenience! The living room had beautiful burgundy leather furniture with a heavenly view of the water and trees. BTW, while watching TV one night, we felt cold, we opened the drawer in the coffee table and it had a blanket. We were blown away!

The master bedroom was like a spacious suite in a 7 Star hotel with a water view! It has a walk in closet and an exceptional master bathroom that had: shampoo, conditioner, hand moisturizer, disposable cups, a brand new towel set with a towel placed right next to you wherever you need one! The laundry area had everything that we could possibly need and it was all labeled so you’d know at a glance where everything is. There is a small closet in front of the kitchen it had extra plastic bags, tons of them for our convenience. It’s unbelievable; there is nothing that this cottage lacks. We could live there!

The dock was amazing! Huge, perfectly lit at night and has a covered part with high quality comfortable furniture. We fished throughout our trip. Caught many catfish of decent size, white perch on spinners, spot on night crawlers and even crabs on a rod and reel! We had a blast.

The level of convenience we found in this place is unbelievable! It’s as if David and his wife Amy spent months just thinking of every single thing that would make their guests comfortable and totally pampered. Thank you so much guys, we’ll definitely be back!
