The SpaceThe house, Sunrise Point, is situated on a peninsula with close to 180 degrees of water frontage surrounded by 7 acres of woodland.
Imagine yourself sitting on the boat dock with a steaming mug of coffee or tea watching the sun come up and burning up the mist over the water, while wondering what to do today. Perhaps some fishing, or put the crab traps out for dinner, may be take a boat ride and stop off at one of the dockside restaurants for lunch, kayaking, a spot of horse shoes, a bike ride, or a walk in the woods to work off lunch. Then fire up the gas grill and throw on whatever you caught / bought today, out on the deck while sipping a favorite beverage. After dinner may be play cards or board / video games or even watch a movie. Nah, why not just laze in the hammock all day, read a good book, snack on some great seafood, and have an early night to wake up fresh to see the next Northern Neck sunrise over the water!

Come down to the 'RIVAH!' Guest AccessThe House key is provided once your booking has is finalized. Your booking is considered finalized once you have accepted, executed, and returned our standard rental agreement, your booking has been accepted by owner, and the rental cost paid. Interaction with GuestsWe as hosts are as available to you from the day you reserve your stay to the time you check out. Our mission is to help make your vacation / holiday a great one! With that in mind we will do everything we can to make you comfortable and at home in your place by the river. The NeighborhoodDowntown Reedville is small town Americana with streets and houses right out of a Norman Rockwell painting. You will be surrounded by hundreds of square miles of navigable water ways as well as the majestic Chesapeake Bay that provides fantastic boating, sailing, jet skiing and water skiing. The fishing is fantastic all year round whether you want to charter a boat and crew to fish the bay for Rockfish and Blues, or you just want to fish the many rivers, creeks and coves...or just off our dock for that matter. As well as fishing off the dock, there is nothing like baiting our crab traps, dropping and tying the traps off the end of our dock in the morning and pulling them in around 5pm and broiling the blue crabs up for a rustic crab feast at the picnic table with a favorite beverage. Getting AroundThe house is in a rural area and is quite secluded so you will need a car. There is plenty of parking available on our drive way. The house has several bicycles for guest use. Other Things to NoteWhether it's boating, fishing, crabbing, BBQing, eating out on the screened porch, sipping margaritas or mohitos on the sun splashed deck, napping in an outside hammock, exerting yourselves with a game of horse shoes, walks in the private woods, or simply sitting on the dock with a steaming cup of Joe watching the mist on the river as the sun comes up, or just curling up in a comfy chair with a good book from the house library, this vacation home is for you!
It's secluded yet close enough to walk or drive to everything we need when we are there. We love the beauty and history of Reedville and surrounding area. The woods on our 7+ acre lot is home to many woodland creatures such as deer, foxes, rabbits, wild turkeys. The sky is the domain of not only owls, buzzards, hawks and birds you expect to see in rural Virginia, there are also ospreys, storks, grebes, pelicans and all manner of sea birds, and it is not uncommon to see majestic bald eagles (there are upwards of 30 pairs living in the area) patrolling and competing with ospreys for the fish in our cove. And at night we can look up and be enthralled to see countless stars on a pitch black sky with the night sounds of the surrounding woods as a sound track.
