About the neighbourhood
We are on the beautiful Ware Neck Peninsula which lets you enjoy the peace of being in the country while still being a short drive to the towns of Gloucester or Matthews to enjoy a good restaurant or local shops and galleries. We are also a convenient drive to Yorktown (25 min) or Williamsburg ( 40 min). We offer a nice retreat at the end of a day of taking in all that this historic area has to offer.
