Want to get away from it all? This is the place for you. Drive down Candy Point Road and
you'll feel like you are back at summer camp in this peaceful cottage with beautiful original pine walls and tall ceilings. Its cozy porch faces directly onto Rogers Creek, with views of the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay.
We call this cottage "The Little House" because it is the smaller guest house on the property-- the "Big House" is nearby across the yard. Just down the hill is our sandy beach.
The kitchen and bathroom were updated in spring 2017.
A washer/dryer stack unit has just been installed.
The cottage has central air conditioning and heat plus ceiling fans in every room.
Lie in the hammock to watch both spectacular sunsets and sunrises. Great star gazing.

About Rob Whittle
We are native Virginians and live in Alexandria, VA. The property includes 2 cottages, a garage, 1/3 acre, and a dock. It's our family's favorite place and we've been restoring and upgrading it for the last 35 years. I love painting furniture and floors and anyone can see I have been very busy with my projects!
Rob Whittle purchased this Cottage in 1981
Why Rob Whittle chose Heathsville
Definitely its proximity to the water. Candy Point is practically surrounded by water... you can hear the waves at night. Visitors feel like they are on a boat because the house is up on a hill and you see water everywhere you look!
What makes this Cottage unique
In the spring you can watch ospreys ( just back from their winter journey to Argentina) building their nests. Bald eagles soar above the creek. We have bluebirds and hummingbirds too. It is a very quiet setting --at night you hear the waves and the frogs across the creek at Froggy Bottom. Plus the star gazing is amazing!

Perfect Stay at the Little House on Candy Point
My husband & I along with our three year old golden retreiver David had a wonderful stay at the Little House. Everything we needed was there - all we brought were some groceries.
The property was the perfect size for us! If you're looking for a quiet, secluded vacation surrounded by beautiful water views this is a perfect fit!
Beautiful and so relaxing!
The Cottage, property and overall experience was exceptional!!! From the home and its appointments/décor, to the wonderful grounds situated on a point with great views, a sandy beach and dock for sunbathing or crabbing/fishing and sunsets...the list goes on and on... The owner is very accommodating, we love your place Anne - and we will definitely be back.
Thanks. Jim & Jeannie
The house is very nice. Much bigger on the inside than you would expect. The views are amazing and the house has just about everything you need. The owner is right next door so even if we had problems we could've just talked to them. They were very nice. We really enjoyed bbqing and sitting in the screened in porch. The directions for dropping off the trash at the end of our stay were very helpful. We were very sad to leave, but look forward to going back soon!
My husband and I stayed at Candy Point with 2 friends of ours. It was very spacious inside, and the outside was absolutely gorgeous. Anne was very helpful and responsive if we needed anything. I highly recommend staying here for a weekend getaway (or longer!).
We Love the Little House!
We just completed our second stay at the Little House. We were there in June and loved it so much we went back in October. The Little House is a wonderful place to relax. A beautiful setting, a cozy, comfortable cottage, it is just a great place to unplug. Our favorite time was early in the morning, sitting on the screen porch with a cup of coffee, watching the herons and eagles over the water. Anne does a great job of adding little touches to the cottage to make it feel homey and very comfortable. We highly recommend the Little House to anyone wanting to slow down and relax in a very scenic setting. We come from Minnesota, so getting there isn't easy, but we will return whenever we find ourselves in the DC area, looking for a beautiful place for some downtime.
So beautiful, comfortable and relaxing
We had a great time relaxing, kayaking, swimming, crabbing and cooking out on the campfire. Anne went out of her way to be sure we had crabbing supplies and even left us chicken necks in the freezer! The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The "creek" leading into the Potomac and Chesapeake was way better than I expected. It had a sandy bottom which made it great for swimming and was really pretty to kayak. I saw blue herons and eagles.
The cottage's zip code locates it in Heathsville, Va. but it is about 9 miles from Heathsville, on the Potomac River in Edwardsville, Va. It is a very rural, peaceful spot with big open water views (Potomac River is 10 miles wide here). Perfect spot for fishing, sunbathing, kayaking, boating, biking, and sightseeing in nearby small towns.
