Photos and Description of this Gloucester Courthouse holiday house

Beach front house

This vacation rental in Gloucester can comfortably accommodate up to 8 people with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There is a minimum stay of 3 nights during winter,3 nights on spring, 5 night on summer and 3 nights on autumn.No pets and no EVENTS of any sort sorry. Enjoy the breathtaking views on all sides of our beach house! Relax in the second floor balcony hot-tub as you gaze out across Mobjack Bay to the Chesapeake.(HotTub closed for season from June15 to Sept15) Sandbars shelter the private sandy beach and the gentle lapping waves are ideal for family fun, fire pit by the beach and gas grilling on the deck overlooking the beach. All upscale fittings with fully equipped kitchen and dining room, surround sound entertainment systems and gas fireplaces on both the first and second floors. Surrounded by glorious nature as private forested estates line the drive up to the beach house - perfect for peaceful walks, jogging or bike rides. Animal watchers can observe the local wildlife paradise that includes dolphins ospreys, snowy egrets, blue herons, bald eagles, great horned owls, wild turkeys, white-tailed deer and more. Kayak or jet-ski from the beach to explore the shoreline. Plenty of room to park your boat with public launches at Gloucester Point Beach Park and Ware House Landing to head out onto the waters for great sailing, crabbing and fishing. Pick up some locally caught crabs, fresh smoked ham or homemade jam at the historic Nuttals Country store 5 minutes up the road- serving the area since 1875 and so cozy you wont want to leave!

10 minutes away is the quaint town of Historic Gloucester with a Courthouse dating back to 1766, wide variety of restaurants, concerts on the green, Spring and Fall jazz festivals “Main Street Blues and Brews”, a museum and galleries displaying the works of local artisans. Only 30-40 minutes away are the Colonial National Historic Parks of Williamsburg and Yorktown. The local area offers many activities including horse-riding, kayaking, mountain-biking, golf and even an aquarium at the Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences (we can provide links and directions to all!). Just 5 minutes from the house, the Ware River Yacht Club offers tennis, kayaking and sailing camps for kids and holds an annual regatta. Water Country water park is only 40 minutes from the house and Busch Gardens theme park 40 minutes away. Dine on the waterfront at the fantastic River’s Inn Restaurant and Crab Deck or sample some Virginia wines at local vineyards: Williamsburg Vineyard (25mins), New Kent Winery in New Kent, Va (1hr) and White Fences Vineyard and Winery in Irvington, VA (1hr). Bring your clubs for a game of golf at the Gloucester Country Club (10mins), Pines Golf Club or the Newport News Golf Club at Deer Run (25 minutes), one of the best public golf courses in the country. Also within 1 hr drive: Virginia Air & Space Center in Hampton, VA Great escape from the city as our beach house is just a short drive from Norfolk and Richmond (1 ¼ hrs), Washington D.C and Northern Virginia (2 ½ hours). We bought the property as a second/ weekend home for a peaceful retreat to de-stress from our busy commuter lives in Washington DC. No smoking is permitted inside the house.

The house was beautiful and well-equipped for our ladies getaway long weekend.

  • 5 of 5

The house had what we needed, from ample towels to a well-stocked kitchen. It's far from the hustle of town, which was just what we needed. It's close enough to groceries and restaurants as needed.

We especially enjoyed the hot tub on the deck, and the fact that they provided a full moon was great. :)

There are also TVs, a karaoke machine, games and books, and a private beach. A beautiful retreat!

Great Property!

  • 4 of 5

The house had a great layout, with 3 floors of living & sleeping space. Kitchen, dining room and living room worked perfect as hang-out spaces. Great to be out of the way while only being ~1 hour from the primary tourist attractions (Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown, etc.)

Awesome house with large spaces and fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

We had five adults, one toddler, and two infants at the house and found it to be a great place to relax. The home is big enough for the kids to nap on one floor and not be bothered by whatever is happening on the other floors. The kitchen had enough pots and pans for us to make whatever we wanted, and the grill worked well.

The beach was fantastic, and we enjoyed using the kayaks. We had fun exploring the bay. And the views from the two balconies were exceptional.

There is no wifi, but we had sufficient cell service to get meet our internet and email demands. I would definitely book here again.

Beautiful home...caring hosts!

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival my family and I found the property description accurate regarding the locations, layout and amenities. The property was clean and appeared cared for. The owners communication prior to our arrival was more than satisfactory and a bottle of white wine was left in the fridge as a welcoming gift. As a family we decided it was a property that we would like to rent again in the future.

This is a beautiful home on the bay with a gorgeous view.

  • 4 of 5

The description was very accurate and the place was clean and well maintained. Our only complaint was with the hot tub. We wish the water had been changed prior to our visit but after a half dozen cleaning cycles through the filters the situation improved. The owners were great to work with and very responsive. We would definitely recommend this property to others.

We enjoyed Gloucester Courthouse and visited the Dogs and Oysters Winery. Great wine! Lunch at The Local in Irvington was great and breakfast at The Courthouse Restaurant in Gloucester Courthouse was outstanding.
