The graceful columned manor house welcomes you like a southern belle. The accommodations are romantic and timeless. Warmth and intimacy greet you the minute you walk through your private entrance into the grand parlor. Casual elegance abounds with hospitable interiors and well appointed rooms.

The gently sloping lawn has also been the site of magical wedding receptions, cocktail parties and many hotly contested croquet matches. Just how civilized can life be!

Guest AccessThere is a detached studio on property that is not part of the rental. It is unoccupied, but is for owners' use only. Interaction with GuestsWe live about 40 minutes away in Gloucester County. If you have an emergency, we can be there if we are in town. But normally, you'll have the place all to yourselves and you won't see us. The NeighborhoodOur cottage is located in a rural setting across a quiet road from a gorgeous hayfield and a few horses. We do have some neighbors, and they are lovely, quiet people who will not intrude on your peaceful experience. The river is a half mile walk past fields and woods, and usually includes a wildlife sighting or two: deer, eagles, hawks and turkeys are our neighbors too. This is a great spot to relax, read, walk, bike, sip wine. (There are several good wineries in the area too--as well as the very popular oyster bar/restaurant, Merroir.) Getting AroundThis is a rural area with no public transportation. Other Things to NoteIn very hot and very cold weather, the enclosed porch may not be comfortable enough to use during the very hottest or coldest parts of the day.

Steeped in History Step back in time to 1763, when William Churchill, the patriarch of one of Virginia’s leading colonial families, completed the construction of Wilton House, an elegant, now beautifully preserved, T-shaped Georgian plantation house near the Piankatank River in the Tidewater region on Virginia's Middle Peninsula. Whether you come for a weekend or a week, a month or a season, Wilton’s eight graciously furnished rooms -- filled with 18th and 19th century antiques, dramatic oriental rugs, and an alluring collection of 19th and 20th century paintings – will provide stimulation for the senses, respite for the soul, and renewal for the spirit. Three bedrooms and three accompanying bathrooms make Wilton House an inviting setting for one or two couples or a small family or group of friends. The house can comfortably accommodate up to six overnight guests. This historic plantation house is a travel destination in its own right. But Wilton is also a convenient jumping off point to explore the quiet pleasures of Tidewater Virginia, from kayaking along the nearby Piankatank River, to sailing from Deltaville, eating fresh oysters along the Rappahannock, or exploring the nearby villages of Urbanna, Kilmarnock and Gloucester Courthouse. Richmond, Colonial Williamsburg (intimately tied in spirit and history to Wilton House), and a host of James River Plantations are within an hour’s drive. The House: Reception Rooms Sit for a while in the paneled parlor, the most elegant room in the house, with walls wearing only their second coat of paint ever, “Williamsburg blue,” applied over 200 hundred years ago. Mr. Churchhill entertained his most important guests in this showpiece room. Today the furnishings are intentionally simple -- just four early Queen Anne chairs around a 1760 drop-leaf table, placed in the center of the room -- the better to appreciate this remarkably well preserved paneling, in the high-style of the late Colonial period. This can be a place for a game of cards, for animated conversation, or for simply imagining what has transpired within these four walls over the past two and a half centuries. Across the hall, the Red Room awaits, a less formal, but no less striking parlor with its stunning red-painted woodwork. This gathering room is the perfect spot for conversation among friends, drinks before a fire, board games, reading, or listening to music. (One of two Bose music systems is here in The Red Room.) There are no TV screens at Wilton, but there is high speed Wi-Fi throughout the house and in this spacious room you might comfortably catch up on your email or otherwise connect to cyberspace while sitting on the Sheraton period sofa, or one of two the circa 1790 lolling chairs. Or you may be inspired to sit at the impressive ca. 1800 Virginia slant-front desk and bookcase and pen a letter to an old friend. The antique furnishings here, as in the rest of the house, are not just to be viewed and admired but to be used for their intended purposes. Make yourself at home. Formal Dining Room and Country Kitchen Walking from the two front parlors and the central passage between them toward the back of this T-shaped house takes you to the staircase hallway. This is the heart of Wilton, and, yes, it’s all original: the painted paneling, the heart pine stairs themselves, the walnut balustrades and handrail. Passing through the staircase hall, the elegant dining room beckons. The mostly Federal period furniture here includes the ca. 1800 mahogany Hepplewhite table, with its impressively figured wide boards; eight Federal period dining chairs, and a 1790 Baltimore serpentine sideboard with two Federal knife boxes sitting atop. A tall clock keeps the time, and sparkling period-style lighting illuminates several 19th century American paintings on the walls. Plus, all you need for an elegant dinner setting is at hand: gleaming crystal stemware, a complete 19th century dinner service, and flatware to match. Despite all the attractions of the foregoing rooms, you may find yourself spending a lot of time in the kitchen, with its warm hearth of 250-year old brick fabricated on the premises. Abundant bright natural light from its three windows on the east, north and west walls reflects off newly plastered white walls over 18-inch thick masonry. Underfoot are warm (and well worn!) heart pine floors. There are top of the line appliances here, of course, and gleaming white French Limoges porcelain as well as everything you need to cook -- for two or ten (or not at all.) The feeling is of a country style kitchen, simple yet elegant. A late 18th century hutch table and six Windsor chairs provide an inviting setting for everyday day meals, or perhaps an intimate chat over a spot of tea. Upstairs... Head up the steps from the stairway hall and you will find three bedrooms and three full baths. To the right at the head of the stairs is the privately situated master bedroom suite, in the rear portion of the house. You first enter the bedroom, with its inviting antique queen-sized, four poster bed, ca.1820. Early red-painted wooden shutters here will keep out the unruly morning sun. Beyond is a large, full bathroom and dressing area, where a 4-foot square Carrera marble and glass rain shower mixes company with 250-year old heart-pine floors and the most unusual of the 23 window seats in the house. In front of the hearth, a 1760 mahogany, “colt-footed” Irish drop leaf table and accompanying desk chair invite you to linger. The two other bedrooms and bathrooms sit across the upstairs hallway in the front of the house. The large Churchhill Room, on the Southwest corner, has its own en suite bathroom, with tub and shower wand. This amply proportioned room features an antique Southern black walnut acorn-top bed, retrofitted as a California king. Two easy chairs (ca. 1980!) and a stunning 1790 mahogany slant front desk make this an inviting space for sitting, reading, writing, study -- and sleeping! On the Southeast corner is the smaller third bedroom, the Salem Room, with its mahogany carved double bed, ca. 1820, a ladies dressing table and a 1790 shield-back arm chair, (all from the Massachusetts North Shore, possibly Salem.) This bedroom is served by the adjacent hall bath, with its spacious subway-tiled shower. More Afield... And, yes, there is more. Outdoors, two patios and several benches invite you to enjoy the fresh country air and the massive English boxwoods that wrap around the front of the house. Beyond, a stroll along the driveway, across the fields and through the woods of Wilton’s 25 acres makes a nearly one-mile loop. Log Cabin Need just a little more solitude? A 19th century log cabin -- heated but not plumbed -- sits 100 feet to the west of the house; its one room with fireplace and sleeping loft above provides a place apart. Slave/Kitchen Quarter And last but not least is another special feature of Wilton plantation. One hundred and fifty feet to the east of the main house is a circa 1840 dependency. This 16’ x 32’ cabin is a duplex structure, divided down the middle into two rooms, each with its own outside entrance and fireplace. This outbuilding was most likely used as a slave dwelling as well as a kitchen and perhaps a laundry. The chimneys have been rebuilt, and failing plaster has been replaced and re-worked, but the structure, like the main house, has lost none of its authenticity. Guests are invited to use the cabin, and their imaginations, to ponder what it must have been like to live and work in this space nearly 200 years ago. Your Host Your host during your stay at Wilton will be Judith Dickinson. Judith was born in the south west of England and has spent her professional life in the hotel industry and private estates. She uses these skills running her bed and breakfast, Atherston Hall, in nearby Urbanna. Her attention to detail ensures Wilton is always beautifully prepared for arriving guests . She will be also be happy to make special arrangements for your visit, including catered meals, provisioning, housekeeping, laundry service, and event planning. Wilton and its 250-year history beckon. We await your inquiries -- and your arrival.

The Cottage of Content is on "loan" as a short-term rental through March 2017. Please check back with us in March if you'd like to make a reservation! Thank you! This whimsical, artsy cottage is in Wake--a tiny hamlet snugged up to the Rappahannock River and biking distance (about 6 miles) to the quaint sailing town of Deltaville, VA. It is small and simple, away from noisy distractions, with a front porch for wine sipping and counting lightning bugs, and a three-season screened porch for breakfast, scrabble, reading, talking, sleeping (full-size futon) or enjoying the drama of a summer thunderstorm. The Cottage of Content (named after a British pub dating to 1485 in Carey, England fondly remembered by one of the owners during his military career) overlooks a sweeping hayfield frequented by Canada geese, wild turkeys and deer. If you're lucky, you'll be there on a day they're cutting hay. Truly, nothing smells better. Starry, dark nights are best enjoyed with open windows to hear the owls, the occasional whippoorwills and crickets. A half-mile walk past woods and open fields ends at the small public beach on the Rappahannock River. Don't forget to bring your bikes, kayaks and running shoes as our quiet, rural roads and waterways await. For boaters, a large public boat ramp is approximately two miles away (kayak put-in is easy from either the beach or boat launch), and the much-acclaimed Merroir Tasting Room on Locklies Creek is 6 miles away (also accessible via kayak, boat or bike). There is a 2-person kayak at the cottage that you are welcome to use. There are several local farmer's markets from May through the fall on rotating weekends (Irvington, my favorite; Urbanna and Deltaville), along with a local farm stand (Merryvale Farms) and an excellent seafood retailer (J&W Seafood) in Deltaville. This is a great little spot if you have business in Deltaville or surrounding counties, or just need a quiet getaway for a few days. It's not for partiers, but it is for readers and cuddlers, porch sitters, nature lovers and wine sippers (did I mention that already?)--and I would be remiss if I didn't tell you about the wonderful wineries waiting to be discovered, from Good Luck Cellars (our favorite) in Kilmarnock and the Dog and Oyster in Irvington to farther up the Northern Neck where you'll find Athena, Hague, General's Ridge, Jacey and Belle Mount. Lots of great places to eat as well. Golfer? There are three excellent 18-hole golf courses within minutes: The renowned Golden Eagle at the Tides Inn, King Carter in Kilmarnock, and the Piankatank River course in Hartfield (just a few miles from the cottage). The location is also very convenient to the Northern Neck, Urbanna, and the counties of Mathews and Gloucester. It is also an easy drive to Williamsburg or Jamestown, as many of our guests have pointed out. It's a perfect spot for a couple, though it is large enough to accommodate up to four people. We hope you'll be our guest, and that you'll enjoy the Cottage of Content as we do. We'll leave a bottle of wine on the table for you! Good Stuff to Know: The beds in both bedrooms are full-size There is one full-size futon on the porch Linens are provided The kitchen is well stocked, but I would not attempt a Julia Childs extravaganza There are lots of wine glasses There is an outdoor shower Bathroom has a shower, no tub No washer and dryer Good phone signal with Verizon Patio with gas grill and seating Front porch with seating
