Cool old building
We enjoyed our stay at the Reserve very much. The house was very clean and well stocked on our arrival. We were there to fish and brought 3 boats with us, we were able to easily park all 3 boats and all 3 trucks without any difficulty. My only critique of the house is I am not sure I would call it a 4 bedroom. There is one bedroom downstairs and the old vault is attached to it. Upstairs is to small connected rooms. Not a big deal for our group as we were pretty much just there to sleep and shower. We would stay there again.
We’re happy you liked it and we enjoyed meeting you!
For Future guests....
We’ve tried our best to describe our place honestly and without pretense.
A tiny house...a lodge....( it’s a historic 1920’s old bank!)
The forum that there is to choose from is limited.... ie...they want you to make the reference (a bedroom & how many, etc.)
Please always refer to our pictures., it is evident that there are not private bedrooms upon viewing our site and our photos.
It’s unique space....unlike any other.
We hope to have you again.
Thank you again!
Had a blast.
Great spot and we had an awesome time. The owner was more than accommodating.
Thank you so much! We hope to see you again!
Please let us know what we could do better to get a 5 star.
It was overall Great!
I loved the house. It was very cute! It had everything you could need (home-away-from-home).
I did not love the lack of internet and the beds were pretty hard (too firm for us). There was one twin bed with memory foam mattress in the loft that was great (I slept there), all of the others had very firm mattresses. The rest of my family complained about a stiff neck and achy back.
But other than that it was absolutely wonderful!! Very cute and accommodating! I would stay there again and recommend it to friends!
Thank you! I’ve not had complaints about our mattresses before, but that is good to know. We will look into that.
We’d love to have you again and we hope you enjoyed your wedding weekend on the Shore.
Btw....We can not ( as we state on our booking site ) get internet where we are. We’ve tried and it is not available. You can get a hot spot but that’s as good as it gets.
We hope our guests will come, enjoy and disconnect!

Great house that was very comfortable! It is kind of isolated from activity but we liked the remoteness, but drivable to any type of dinning or entertainment in 15 or 20 minutes. Owners are super to work with and very responsive to questions.
These guests were not only respectful to us and our property, they paid it forward for the next guests!
We truly appreciate guests like this and hope to see them again.
Thank you so very much!
The Reserve is a terrific home away from home. It is clean and cozy and comfortable.
The Reserve served us well as a home base for a family wedding weekend. The location was convenient to several activities - fishing, golfing, Cape Charles, shopping, and the wedding venue.
Everything we needed was well provided (kitchen, bed and bath) so we could enjoy the Cape Charles area and the family wedding celebrations.
Thank you to Julie and Dan for being so gracious and accommodating. We look forward to returning to The Reserve.
We were very happy with visit. The four teenage girls loved the loft and they had their own bathroom with lots of privacy. The house was clean and had all necessities in the kitchen. They even had lighter fluid and matches for the charcoal grill. The fire pit was a hit even in the middle of summer. Some of our group took a day trip across the bridge to VA Beach, the CBBT is just five minutes away! Over all great stay and we would stay again.
Wonderful! Thank you! We’d love to have you again.
