Location

Heathsville, Virginia, United States

This house is equidistant (9 miles) from Kilmarnock and Reedville, two quaint, friendly Northern Neck towns. Kilmarnock is full of cute local shops and Reedville boasts historic houses, two waterfront restaurants, and a classic ice cream parlor. Irvington and White Stone are only a few miles from Kilmarnock and also offer plenty of local color, shops, cafes and a winery. A mile by kayak down the river is a great waterfront restaurant. Hughlett Point Nature Preserve is a 10-15 minute drive away and is a beautiful spot along the Chesapeake Bay for hikes, a picnic or a swim. Local festivals, parades and shows are sprinkled throughout the year and Edgehill is a great place to celebrate holidays. If you have any specific requests like fresh flowers or local Great Wicomico River Oysters, please feel free to ask and we will do our best to accommodate you.
We are 70 miles from Colonial Williamsburg, 75 miles from Richmond, 80 miles from Virginia Beach, and 140 miles from Washington DC. The closest airport is in Newport News/Williamsburg International (Prince Henry Field) and is 60 miles or an hour and 10 minutes away. Alternatively, Richmond International Airport is a 70 mile journey.

During your stay
We'd love to help your trip be the best it can be. We will recommend restaurants, hikes, kayak trips, or the best crab bait. However, we will not be in the house at the same time as you unless you are only renting one room.
