“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bird's Nest! Everything was clean and beautifully decorated. Tanya left us some homemade cookies that were to die for! Every detail was thought of to make our stay comfortable and inviting. The weather was not the greatest for most of the Trip, but my boys were still able to enjoy the water and fish from the dock. It's about a 15 minute drive into town with several great restaurants and local shops. Truly a hidden gem that we hope to visit again!”
Need a change of scenery? Summertime on the river is great! Stay with us and enjoy river and town amenities. Drop in your kayak or SUP at the river access beside the house. No time to grocery shop? Walk to the restaurants in town to enjoy outdoor seating or takeout. Several are open with outside dining. Enjoy some history too in this 1750s home. Come and enjoy our place in the Town of Tappahannock, which was once described in a poem of old as the “lovely little nest of quietness and rest”.
“This house is charming and filled with history. This historic house is quaint and perfectly placed in the town of Tappahannock Va, just a few feet from the banks of the Rappahannock River. Karen was prompt and very quick to respond to messages. She provided wonderful recommendations for breakfast that only enhanced our stay. The little touches around the house made you feel warm and welcomed. The house has historic charm and a few quirks that make it a lovely place for a couple to visit. It was the perfect place for our visit to Tappahannock. The house was sparkling clean, with free parking. If you like southern history consider this lovely place to stay while in town!”
Morningtide Cottage is the perfect getaway! Enjoy our amazing waterfront sunrise views, visit local wineries, and relax in a tranquil setting surrounded by woods and water. Our family-friendly home has plenty of space for lawn games, bike riding, fishing and swimming from the dock. There are nearby marinas and launching points, so bring your boat to enjoy exploring the Yeocomico River, with just a quick ride out to the Potomac. Visit us to appreciate Virginia's rich history and natural beauty!
“This was a perfect weekend getaway. The cottage has been nicely updated and the view from the kitchen is worth the drive. We have two kids and this was the perfect place for us to crash for a weekend on the Northern Neck. The house is nice but not so nice that you are scared to let your kids touch anything. Very clean with everything you need. It very much felt like home. We enjoyed walking down the docks and watching the wildlife. We grabbed some local crabs and had a feast on the deck/dock. There are a couple places within five minutes that cook them fresh to order (when in season). Overall, awesome trip.”
