Our waterfront beach cottage sits on a bluff overlooking the James River and Jamestown Island. The steps to the beach are shared with the cottage next door. You will have the privacy of a cottage and will be directly across the river from Historic Jamestowne and Williamsburg. You can see Historic Jamestowne from the cottage.
The James River here at the cottage is tidal water and is clean. The tide comes in and goes out very slowly, so it is great for children to play in. It is partly salty and partly freshwater. There is not a drop-off.
Directly across the river is Jamestown Island, the place of the first permanent English settlement in America. Our cottage has a beautiful view, a beach and the James River to play in, but close to Historic Jamestowne, Williamsburg, Yorktown, Busch Gardens and other sites that you are coming to visit. Even if the weather isn't perfect, you can sit on the enclosed porch and watch Eagles and Ospreys fish or tugboats going by.
You will have privacy here. There are no houses behind the cottage, just woods and fields. The cottage is down a 0.4 mile lane so there is no traffic noise.

This place was amazing. The house was super clean and well organized with essentials. Beds were very comfortable. The view is breathtaking. From swimming, kayaking, wildlife, laying out on the beach and shells the size of your hand it was the best time ever! My family and I can’t wait to come back.
