This property has three full bedrooms and two bathrooms, allowing up to eight guests to sleep comfortably. A private dock is provided where guests can use stairs to go straight into the water, or can just enjoy catching fish and crabs. A canoe is provided for guests to use, while all visitors are encouraged to bring their own boat or jet ski for recreational use.

The hot tub provides incredible views of the cove and the sky, as the Northern Neck is one of the few places left where guests can still view the stars.
