The surrounding 25 acres provide ample opportunities for children and pets to roam around The interior includes an equipped kitchen, two bedrooms, (a queen bed in one, 2 doubles in the other), one bathroom w shower, living room office space and two screened porches. The house is located in the historic Northern Neck region of Virginia. Enjoy crabbing, fishing, boating, kayaking, winery tours, and the historic homes of George Washington, Robert E Lee and James Monroe. If you prefer wildlife rather than night life this is the place for you. Wake up each morning to eagles, geese, herons, and local crabbers fishing their pots. This is a quiet rural location with plenty of acreage which will give you the chance to get away from the bustle and stress of the city. Most amenities can be reached within 30 minutes. A note for those from the city -- we live in an area where 'critters' are a fact of life. Some of them are a pleasure to see and some of them are a nuisance. We make every effort to accent the positive and eliminate the negative critters that you may encounter . Can be rented for the summer or the year at reduced rates HURRICANE and INCLEMENT weather policy. If weather conditions threaten your trip, contact the owner by telephone or text before cancelling or travelling. Generally speaking, if the house is safe and ready for occupancy, there will be no refunds made. If the owner has to cancel your reservation for safety or other reasons, you will receive a refund. Other options may apply so be sure to call or text. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: Not requiredMore
