About Rangeley Thornton

My husband and I purchased this home in the Northern Neck of Virginia to be able to have a place to stay for fishing trips and family gatherings.

Rangeley Thornton purchased this house in 1995

Why Rangeley Thornton chose Heathsville

If your in the area to visit family or friends, or just tour the Northern Neck, it is so much more comfortable to stay in a home than a hotel. This home is adorable and provides everything you will need for a wonderful stay in the Northern Neck.

What makes this house unique

Fishermans' House is 9 miles from Vir-Mar Beach which is a beautiful public beach right on the Chesapeake Bay.

Great for people travelling with pets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a party of 6 that stayed in this home in October for a rock fishing trip. This house has everything! We parked our boat in the front yard, was able to get our engine cleaned immediately after fishing. The house is only 25 mins from Smith Pt Marina. The house is very clean, beds are comfortable, everything about this house was great. I loved the location of it, just off rt 360 in Heathsville. Owner was very nice and accommodating. We will come back here every year. I highly recommend this house for any guests coming to the Northern Neck of Va.

I loved this house, the hospitality of the owner was fantastic and the area was great. Close to a public beach that is very secluded and the fully fenced back yard with the doggy door was an awesome benefit. I would definitely stay here again if I were to visit the same area.

Great for R&R

  • 5 of 5

Precious little house w/ plenty of spaces. We only had two of us, but could have easily accommodated for 4-6. Extremely clean, bright & had the basic necessities to make us feel at home. If you're looking to get away & enjoy quiet, it's a good option. Have to be willing to drive if you want to "do things." Would have been nice to have a little more detail on directions to the landfill. But, overall, great hospitality! & experience!

Great value and very clean. The owner is very cooperative and will help you with anything. The house is comfortable. What more can you ask for except you can bring man's best friend. There is a fence so your pets are safe. Thanks for a home when ours was being worked on.
