Very Nice House

  • 5 of 5

A very nice old house approximately 100 years old with a gracious owner. We will definitely consider going back if we have a large group as we did this time.

Tranquil, Beautiful and Spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We were a total of four adults and two nine year old boys.

The house and property were perfect for a relaxing vacation away from the metro DC area. The house is old and basically a colonial reproduction, and because of this, it is very charming. It is very large -- a bit too large for our group of six, really - but we enjoyed not being on top of each other and having the space to do our own thing when we wanted to.

There were four kayaks with a multitude of life jackets (adult and kid sizes), a couple of bikes, and some lawn games (e.g. croquet). We were out on the river every day -- swimming, fishing and/or kayaking -- and the river is close enough to the Bay/ocean, that there are tides, which is nice because it keeps the water moving. The river is not fast moving or deep (for those with little ones).

There was a charcoal grill, a hammock, and several Adirondack style chairs on the lawn that were perfect for enjoying "sundowners" and quiet views of the sunset and aquatic/bird life. There is not much in the immediate vicinity of the house, but a 20-minute or so drive got you to what you needed (shops, supermarket, restaurants, etc). We quite liked how remote it was. While there are neighbors, the landscaping and size of the lot, make it seem like you were alone out there.

No need to bring towels -- beach or bathroom -- as the house has an abundance. The beds, sheets, pillows, are all comfortable. There is a dish washer, washer/dryer, and all of the silverware, glasses, serving plates, etc, that you could possibly need while on vacation.

While we were there, there was a heat wave. The downstairs is cooled by central air, and the upstairs bedrooms are cooled by window units, which worked fine for us.

There is a caretake for the house -- Nelson -- who was at the house several times throughout our week's rental. Normally, this would be a big negative to me, but he is a really, really nice guy, and the house and grounds are so big, that it was not an intrusion at all.

The only negative is that the house is getting a bit run down and could use a bit of updating. Nelson keeps it all in good working order, but it seems like it hasn't had any major investments in quite a while.

Overall, though, it really was a wonderful and relaxing vacation, and I recommend the property to others who just want to get away from it all, spend some real quality time with family and friends, and do lots of fun stuff outside.

Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family's first stay at Bewdley was nothing short of spectacular....it is a gem! The house is very well-equipped and steeped in history. Built by Major 'Jimmy of Bewdley' Ball in the early 1700s, the original house was not that far from cousin Mary Ball's (George Washington's mother) homestead on the Rappahannock R. GW undoubtedly visited Bewdley in his childhood and explored the many acres of landscaped lawn that surrounds the present house now. No documentation I could find but what a good story!

The pier on Deep Creek leading to the river is perfectly suited for tying up a boat, fishing, or crabbing. We caught lots of both!

Days were filled with lawn games, watching the 4 year old grandson run with abandon in the open fields, or just sitting comfortably on the bank above the river. There is a perfect screened porch overlooking the river where nearly all our meals were taken.

And then there is the wonderful caretaker, Nelson, who unobtrusively but sincerely, will take care of your every need regarding the property and address questions you may have.

Bewdley is as advertised in the listing and not overhyped. I hope it's our first of many visits there.

  • 5 of 5

It is an awesome place. Lots of memories for my husband , he spent time there while he was growing up with the Cosby cousins. Now with our kids and grandkids continuing the memories of such a great place. Quiet and away from the hussle and bussle of this world.

Would love to have a gas grill added to the ammenities available.
