Overview

About the property

Cozy one bedroom cottage on riverfront property on lovely Ware Neck.

Come and spend your vacation in this quiet, peaceful setting on the Ware River. The estate boasts 290 ft of shoreline. This charming and historic 2 story cottage sits on 7 acres located on the Ware Neck Peninsula. The cottage has hand hewn post and beam construction dating to approximately the 1790s. There are fireplaces in both the living room and bedroom. There are ceiling fans in the bedroom and on the front porch. Just in front of the cottage is the restored icehouse built in the late 18th century and used to store blocks of ice brought from up north by steamboats down the Chesapeake Bay. The water front is a short stroll and has a pier with a floating dock. This is a perfect spot for watching beautiful sunsets while enjoying a glass of wine, fishing, crabbing or launching your canoe or kayak. The Cottage is 70 min from Richmond or Norfolk, 2 hours from DC, 45 min from Williamsburg, 30 min from Yorktown and 20 minutes to the Arts community of Matthews. It provides a great home base for exploring this beautiful and diverse region of Virginia.

This was the perfect getaway with peaceful surroundings, access to a private dock, nearby parks and quaint Main Street. Our hosts were friendly, helpful, and generous. We highly recommend this cottage and hope we can return for another visit soon.

Beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this beautiful and historic cottage. Great location close to Gloucester, Yorktown, and the Northern Neck on waterfront property. Cottage has all of the modern conveniences while retaining all of its old world charm. Could not have been nicer or easier. Enjoy!

The "Middle Cottage" at Glebefield is just beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here before, so no surrprises. We came back because it is a beautiful area and there is much to see and do. It's a very comfortable cottage. The owners truly want you to have an enjoyable stay and are great hosts.
