A Restored Authentic Fisherman's Cottage With Pleasing Decor And Great Location
About John Lozinyak
My wife and I have spent the last 3 decades getting to know Colonial Beach and growing to love its slower pace and unique charm. Although we have experience with rentals through our work, The Sunrise Cottage is our second vacation rental home. We have had a great experience for the past couple years with our first vacation rental -- The Coral Cottage. We've met some really nice people and everyone has been very respectful of our property and appreciative of our efforts!
John Lozinyak purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why John Lozinyak chose Colonial Beach
We have worked to restore this cottage, attempting to keep its best features and at the same time opening up its interior by removing some walls and expanding its exterior views and natural light by replacing smaller windows with larger ones.
What makes this Cottage unique
We think the cottage is in an ideal location with it's river frontage and quieter setting... yet convenient to the amenities of the town.

Quick getaway from DC
The cottage is right on the Potomac in a very quiet neighborhood. The views of the river are stunning. The cottage is very warmly decorated, clean, and has everything you could want or need. The bed is very comfortable as well!
Colonial Beach Cottage
A wonderful stay in a great little beach town!
Definitely planning on coming back!
This beach front cottage had everything we wanting for a quiet weekend getaway. The rooms comfortably housed our group of four. We didn't cook any meals but the kitchen is well stocked. John greeted us in person and gifted us a delicious bottle of wine for dinner! The walk to town area restaurants and beaches was about 15 minutes, so very convenient. We will definitely be coming back.
Sunshine Home of warmth and happiness!
This was the best mini weekend vacation. We shared this cottage with another couple and had the best time. John was a gracious host that put our needs first and for most. He helped us find lots of nicks and cranny's in colonial beach making this trip a great exploration of the town and near by. We visited the first week of spring so things where still in "off season" mode, but that made know difference. We meet a lot of great friendly people and hope to be back visiting again as soon as next month. The Sunrise in the front living room and front bedroom are truly breath taking. Just snuggle up in bed with a cup of coffee and watch "the ball of fire" spread across the bedroom! The house was perfectly decorated from the heart and very comfy. (I wanted to take the bed home with me). Thanks John and Susan for a fantastic stay. Hope to see you again soon.
Heather, what a wonderfully descriptive review! Thanks so much! We enjoyed having you and Jeff and your friends as our guests and do hope you will come back soon. You left the cottage so nicely.. and we do so appreciate that, too.
Everything.... Just everything!
My mother and I flew in from Kentucky to spend Thanksgiving with my Navy son (Dahlgren). And what a holiday it was. The house was just perfect! From the fully equipped kitchen to any and all needs one would want.
We utilized the board games, movies, music choices, front porch, bottle of housewarming wine... Just everything.
John is a wonderful host and Susan has made their guesthouse as cozy and welcoming as if it were their own. The books and decor are very special touches. The beds sleep great too!!
Thank you for the wonderful memories with our sailor!!

Mundy, we somehow missed seeing your thoughtful review of our cottage until now. Thanks so much! We're pleased to know that we played a small part in helping to make your holiday time together special. And thanks, too, for leaving the cottage so nicely. We love guests like you!
Relaxing Water Front Cottage
Cozy cottage with great views of the water. It was perfect for enjoying a relaxing weekend. Loved the sitting room! John was an amazingly helpful host. We would love to return some day!
Lisa, thanks a bunch for writing a review. It does make a difference! Do come back!!
Colonial Beach is a golf-cart community with a retro 1940's/50's feel and beachy look. It appeals to young couples, families, and retired folks who appreciate quaintness and want to avoid the cookie-cutter beach resort scene. It's great for biking and walking within the town, fishing and boating on the river and visiting parks (historic and otherwise) and wineries nearby. Local businesses provide opportunities for shopping (antique/thrift/consignment shops), dining out (restaurants, coffee shop, gourmet markets), and entertainment (tiki bars, gambling casino, special events).
