Description of the Reedville vacation home rental
Situated on the main street in Reedville, a small quiet village at the very tip of the Northern Neck of Virginia, this lovely home offers a summer respite from hectic urban living.

A fully maintained inground swimming pool overlooks the active Cockrell’s Creek and a boardwalk provides access to the water for launching of personal watercraft. An outdoor dining area adds to the outdoor living possibilities. Dining al fresco while the sun sets over the waterway is just one of the many attractions of the home.

Inside, make yourself at home amongst the antiques and regional bric-a-brac. A fully equipped kitchen with views to the water and an upstairs Juliet balcony off the master bedroom invite the outdoors in. If it gets cold (which it doesn’t) you can cozy up to a gas fireplace in the den while watching your favorite DVD movies on the large flat screen TV.

And if you need a change from watching the Ospreys nest and boats come and go, there’s always the front porch with its swinging bench to while away the long summer days with a good book. Don’t worry, there’s very little traffic on Main Street to distract you from your reading.

The lawn and gardens are kept neat as a pin by the provided groundskeeping. A weekly cleaning service can also be provided if requested. Cable TV, high speed internet (wifi) and unlimited telephone service are included. A washer and dryer round out the “necessities”.

Area Information
Reedville, Virginia is located at the easternmost point of what is commonly referred to as the Northern Neck. Steeped in history, the Northern Neck seems to have been bypassed by the modern world with all its hustle and bustle. Just 2+ hours from Washington DC, Reedville and the surrounding communities are like a breath of fresh air, where people slow down and take the time to get to know one another. While the area may not have instant access to a Starbucks, it does promote coffee drinking, coffee with neighbors on the front porch!

There’s plenty to see and do in the Reedville area.

If you are a boating person, you couldn’t have better access to the Chesapeake Bay area and all it has to offer. There are 4 marinas close by the property. If kayaking is your thing, you can launch from the private boardwalk and explore the nooks and crannies of the various waterways surrounding Reedville. You can engage one of many experienced area charter boat captains for a day of saltwater fishing, or take a cruise to Smith Island or Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay.

The area is filled with history. Settled in the early 1600’s, the Neck is the birthplace of many founding fathers, including George Washington at Popes Creek Plantation. Robert E. Lee was also born just up the road from George Washington. The area saw limited activity during the Civil War.

At one point in its history, Reedville was one of the richest communities in the country due to the Menhaden fishing fleets that made the Northern Neck their home. Main Street in Reedville still sports many of the original homes built by the affluent fishing captains. In fact, our home was built in 1896 by Capt. Clem Haynie for his bride Minerva, one of four identical Victorians built at that time. There are three still existing, with the fourth replaced over 50 years ago by a (now) huge willow oak now gracing the property.

As a reflection of the importance of the extensive fishing activity, Reedville is home to the award-winning Reedville Fisherman's Museum, a short stroll up Main Street. Their detailed exhibits and active boat shop are sure to interest anyone nautically-bent. They have many activities planned for the summer, including free concerts.

Located within a 5 minute walk are two excellent restaurants, one on the water. Also an ice cream parlor will temp you with its proximity, a 3 minute walk (or you can jog it in under 1 minute if you want to work off the calories)

Other local attractions include: Vineyards, Fishing Charters, antiquing, 3 golf courses, art galleries, James River plantations, Chesapeake Bay-Tangier or Smith Island Cruises, Historic Christ Church, a local community theatre and numerous other activities within the Northern Neck. Colonial Williamsburg and Virginia Beach are 2 hours away. Richmond and Washington DC are also about 2 hours away.
