3 Bedroom 2 Bath House With Big Kitchen And Open Floor Plan In Colonial Beach

This cute and comfy cottage has just enough room for everyone! It's beautifully furnished and the big kitchen, cathedral ceilings and open floorplan make it an ideal space for spending time with family and friends. Located one block from the Classic Shore waterfront, this cottage is a great place to catch the sunrise during an early morning stroll. It has three bedrooms and two baths. Located in a quiet neighborhood, the fenced in back yard is a great place for barbeques.

Downtown Colonial Beach is a quick trip by bike or golf cart and includes quaint coffeehouses, funky shops and all the makings for a quintessential small town beach getaway! Don't miss a walk along the sycamore-lined boardwalk, fishing from the Town Pier, sunbathing or beachcombing along the Potomac River shore and lots of good eats at the many great restaurants to choose from.

When you are ready for a change of pace, a short drive away are great parks, historic sites and attractions including Westmoreland State Park, George Washington's Birthplace, Stratford Hall (home of Robert E. Lee) Ingleside Winery and Westmoreland Berry Farm. Enjoy a day of sightseeing, hiking, kayaking or just a quiet country drive all less than 30 minutes from Colonial Beach.

About Cathy & Jeff Thompson

We love Colonial Beach! I grew up coming to the Beach and the Northern Neck where my family owned different waterfront properties over the years. My father was in the Navy and he and my mother loved being near the water. I remember many family drives along the Colonial Beach waterfront just admiring the shoreline. We live and work in Maryland now but we find ourselves returning to the water time and again repeating those shoreline drives and enjoying that same timeless view.

Cathy & Jeff Thompson purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Cathy & Jeff Thompson chose Colonial Beach

I was delighted to buy a home of my own here almost ten years ago and to share those beach experiences with my husband and daughter. Some of our happiest memories were made here and it's great to think about new families making memories as well. We love walking the beach collecting beach glass, taking a bike ride around the Point, or making a family meal at the cottage. And summer doesn't start for us until we have ice cream from Nancy's.

What makes this cottage unique

We bought this house when it was new in 2007 after falling in love with the cathedral ceilings, big kitchen, and open floorplan. It's great for families with young children and the fenced in back yard is a bonus. The neighborhood is close to everything yet still quiet in the evenings. The cottage is filled with unique finds that I've collected over the years. There's loads of beach cottage charm in this place.

Better than average Colonial Beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

Starfish has several good points compared to the other Colonial Beach properties that we have rented, and there have been quite a few. Starfish is fairly new, things are in working order, there is off-street parking for two vehicles, it is clean, and the house is not stuffed with old furniture and "cutsie" items (like old stuffed animals) that fill up the space. The bedroom space is generous; guests are able to put luggage in the rooms without moving furniture as in many other places. Amenities are sparse, however, so bring toilet paper, tissue, paper towels, hand soap and bath soap, etc. The towels are not luxurious. If you arrive in the late evening on a holiday there may not be any stores open in Colonial Beach where you can purchase such items. The fireplace and the sofa are nice, but only two adults can really sit comfortably in the living room if you want to watch a weekend football game or hang out by the fire in the evening. The kitchen is adequate for cooking meals and there is a big table with enough space to sit down for meals or game-playing. There is no view. It is possible to walk to restaurants and shops - probably takes about 15 minutes.

Clean and beautiful house but bring your own basic amenities.

  • 4 of 5

Starfish Cottage was clean and spacious! Great location in Colonial Beach. Bring laundry and dishwasher detergent, paper towels, coffee filters, etc. Extra bath towels may also be needed for those after-beach showers. Overall, a great trip!
