Gloucester Courthouse, Virginia, United States

We are on a property that feels remote while at the same time, being close to restaurants, grocery stores, theaters as well as the historic triangle. We have a wonderful country store nearby that offers lots of yummy prepared foods. The property sits on the Ware River which provides opportunities for boating, fishing, crabbing and watching the diverse bird population.
