Step back in time for a week at one of the oldest and most historic estates in America. Hike around two beautiful fresh water lakes, home to one of the largest concentrations of river ospreys on the east coast (or explore the lakes via canoe or kayak). Eagles live in the woods and kids will love catching Chesapeake blue crabs at the boathouse dock. You’ll sleep to the sounds of the wind rustling through the huge oaks, and enjoy lovely walks to the beach.

Rosegill totals about 700 acres, which includes two large fresh water lakes, a dock and waterfront on Urbanna Creek, and a mile of waterfront on the Rappahannock River. We encourage you to take advantage of the property and its proximity to Urbanna. Colonial Williamsburg is 45 minutes away. Fun things to do include walks in the fields, to the lakes and to the beach. The dock on Urbanna Creek is an excellent spot for children to go crabbing.

We have two canoes and two kayaks, and Urbanna Creek offers a large expanse of protected water to explore. The Rosegill lakes abound with fish and are accessible via your jon boat or a canoe. You can launch a motorboat in Urbanna at a commercial boat ramp, and keep it at the Rosegill dock for your vacation – it easily handles a 5’ draft. Water skiing and wakeboarding are fun on Urbanna Creek above the bridge. In the summer, the swimming pool at Rosegill is available, albeit shared by those who might be in other houses on the property, and for rainy days, there are games and puzzles in the breakfast room cupboard.

Rosegill sleeps 11 in 9 beds in 5 bedrooms. There are 3 full baths upstairs, and 2 half baths downstairs. We are limited to 11 staying overnight, and total guests at any one time — without permission of the landlord — is limited to 25.

The house is entered via a front door, which faces away from the river. Downstairs there is a modern kitchen – with island, two sinks, a new gas range, Bosch dishwasher, and large built-in refrigerator. You can choose to eat in a small breakfast room which seats 6, the large dining room (seats 12 or more), the river porch (not heated or cooled), or outside on the lawn under the huge oak trees.

The wood-paneled den has cozy seating for watching TV. The large formal living room, also wood paneled, is wonderful for formal entertaining. On the river side of the house, there is a large stair hall that extends the full length of the house. There are two small half-baths downstairs.

The house has central heat and air conditioning. The living room has an iMac computer available for guest usage. We have new laundry machines – washer and dryer – on the East Porch. On the West porch is an extra refrigerator and the exterior door to the swimming pool.

A flat screen TV in the den has DirecTV service and a DVD player. We have good Apple wifi coverage throughout the house and the nearby lawn and pool area, but it is connected to a sometimes unreliable Verizon DSL broadband connection. Welcome to country living! And really, if wifi and TV are vital to you, Rosegill is probably not the place for you.

Each season is special - cozy and private in winter, beautiful in spring and fall, and active in the summer when the pool is open.

Come to Rosegill. Prepare to fall in love.
