All upscale fittings with fully equipped kitchen and dining room, surround sound entertainment systems and gas fireplaces on both the first and second floors.

Animal watchers can observe the local wildlife paradise that includes dolphins ospreys, snowy egrets, blue herons, bald eagles, great horned owls, wild turkeys, white-tailed deer and more. Kayak or jet-ski from the beach to explore the shoreline. Plenty of room to park your boat with public launches at Gloucester Point Beach Park and Ware House Landing to head out onto the waters for great sailing, crabbing and fishing. Pick up some locally caught crabs, fresh smoked ham or homemade jam at the historic Nuttals Country store 5 minutes up the road- serving the area since 1875 and so cozy you wont want to leave!

10 minutes away is the quaint town of Historic Gloucester with a Courthouse dating back to 1766, wide variety of restaurants, concerts on the green, Spring and Fall jazz festivals “Main Street Blues and Brews”, a museum and galleries displaying the works of local artisans.

Just 5 minutes from the house, the Ware River Yacht Club offers tennis, kayaking and sailing camps for kids and holds an annual regatta.

Sunrise is Spectacular

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful sunrise, relaxing private view of the water, with tree covered dirt roads for walking. Cute general store just 2.5 miles for emergencies. Gloucester Court House offered plenty of civilization and store access. Great family retreat.

The house was beautiful and well-equipped for our ladies getaway long weekend.

  • 5 of 5

The house had what we needed, from ample towels to a well-stocked kitchen. It's far from the hustle of town, which was just what we needed. It's close enough to groceries and restaurants as needed.

We especially enjoyed the hot tub on the deck, and the fact that they provided a full moon was great. :)

There are also TVs, a karaoke machine, games and books, and a private beach. A beautiful retreat!

Great Property!

  • 4 of 5

The house had a great layout, with 3 floors of living & sleeping space. Kitchen, dining room and living room worked perfect as hang-out spaces. Great to be out of the way while only being ~1 hour from the primary tourist attractions (Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown, etc.)

Awesome house with large spaces and fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

We had five adults, one toddler, and two infants at the house and found it to be a great place to relax. The home is big enough for the kids to nap on one floor and not be bothered by whatever is happening on the other floors. The kitchen had enough pots and pans for us to make whatever we wanted, and the grill worked well.

The beach was fantastic, and we enjoyed using the kayaks. We had fun exploring the bay. And the views from the two balconies were exceptional.

There is no wifi, but we had sufficient cell service to get meet our internet and email demands. I would definitely book here again.

Beautiful home...caring hosts!

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival my family and I found the property description accurate regarding the locations, layout and amenities. The property was clean and appeared cared for. The owners communication prior to our arrival was more than satisfactory and a bottle of white wine was left in the fridge as a welcoming gift. As a family we decided it was a property that we would like to rent again in the future.
