Relax in our spacious and fully-furnished guesthouse on the grounds of the colonial-era Summerville Plantation. All the amenities - to include a large, open kitchen, WiFi, a 55" high definition TV and a full-size pool table. Quiet and secluded, with a private swimming pool and a rear deck that overlooks the woods ... and, in the early Spring, thousands of daffodils. Take a quick 40 minute drive to Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg - or just hang around historic Gloucester Courthouse.
