This charming cottage sits perched on a hill and is immersed in the trees on the edge of the James River in east Virginia. It is located just across the river from the historic Jamestown fort and Colonial Williamsburg. The city of Richmond and the city of Norfolk are approximately 54 miles from the property. Additionally, the magnificent Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel is situated 75 miles away.

After a fun drive down a curvy forest flanked road, guests will emerge into the sunlight with expansive fields on either side of them. As they turn left down a dirt path that leads to an old farmhouse, guests will dogleg around another field and enter the woods on a gravel road. When they arrive at the gate and step out, guests will vaguely see the vastness of the James River and hear the sound of a light breeze as it tumbles amid the leaves. Around the driveway loop, glampers will notice that they are at the peak of a hill that drops deeply into a greatly wooded ravine on either side.

Straight in front of glampers is the cottage which sits at the tip of the peninsula surrounded by views of the River. Glampers can shut off the vehicle and step outside. There is not another home or person in sight. Now, guests will officially be on vacation. As glampers stroll down the brown pebble path and past the shed that was built by boy scouts in the early 1900's, they will feel the breeze from the river feels stronger now and can see the detail of the water and the white sandy beach below.

Just as glampers step onto the entry deck they will notice two adult bald eagles soaring above the beach looking for prey. At about 70 feet above the river and the surrounding forest floor, the experience here is like being in a treehouse; albeit, a treehouse with a four-acre yard, and parking for 20. The breeze is loud in the trees now and gives guests the feeling of being blanketed by nature.

Guests can take advantage of the cottage's location on the James River and they can go kayaking and canoeing straight from the private beach. This location offers acres of privacy. Two kayaks and a canoe with paddles and 'high-end' life-vests, sized from toddler to He-Man are included. There is a private sitting area away from the house with amazing views of the river. There is also a fire pit and seating on a 70' hilltop overlooking the river. The Chippokes Plantation Park is home to a historic farm museum along with a plethora of outdoor attractions including equestrian trails, a swimming pool, and picnic areas. It also hosts special events throughout the year, providing fun for all the family.

In the town of Surry guests can find a winery, several beautiful plantations including Smith's Fort Plantation, the Brandon Plantation and Gardens, and the Lightwood-Historic 18th Century Plantation House.

In the neighboring towns of Smithfield and Williamsburg guests can enjoy more of our nations history by visiting the colonial areas and the original fort at Jamestown. Busch Gardens and Water County are also fun for the whole family.
