The Emma Frances is a charming, wonderful cottage in a lovely vacation spot. There are river views and the house is well-equipped with modern conveniences. I was alone for most of my stay and was completely comfortable there. It is the perfect vacation house. more

We are happy to have return renters like you that appreciate our efforts to make Emma Frances the best rental on the point! Thank... more

Came to Colonial Beach with my husband our 2-year old for the triathlon weekend. We stayed two nights and loved the Emma Frances. The house is well appointed and makes fantastic use of the space. We loved spending time in the out door areas. Sitting on the patio, around the firepit, and out on the cute front porch. We played ball in the front yard. My son loved the kid chairs in the back, as well as the dumptruck toy. Close enough to the beach to walk, and only a few minutes drive to downtown Colonial Beach. We really did not want to leave. We will definitely be back next summer. more

Management response:

We are so glad you found Emma Frances to be accommodating for your family. Our grandsons also love coming there to play and roast hotdogs and smore's in the fire pit. We will be adding some really cool amenities for next season that will appeal to kids and adults alike. We appreciate our renters and thank you for your kind... more
