"Deep River Cottage" ~ Corrotoman River ~ Great Views & Deep Water

This quaint wood-shingle-sided cottage boasts one of the best views in Lancaster County, looking south and east down the long Western Branch of the Corrotoman River, and offers a sheltered, deep-water harbor off the Chesapeake Bay.

The 2-bedroom, 1-bath waterfront house is perched upon a forested hilltop with a gentle path leading down to a sandy spit and deep water dock with a boat lift. There is a nicely landscaped path leading from the driveway to the waterfront deck, where two sliding glass doors open to the Great Room. Bold colors and an open floorplan complement this casual seaside retreat. The open Kitchen has a brick wood-burning fireplace with a Dining Area by the glass doors overlooking the river. The Living Area enjoys views out the matching glass doors. The dark green tiled floor adds a touch of elegance to the shared bath which doubles as a laundry room, and the two yellow bedrooms have attractive wood floors and windows. There is protected storage space in the walk-in cinderblock crawl space, and room to stow the crab pots under the deck in the off-season.

This home is located in Corrotoman-By-The-Bay subdivision, with a mix of inland and waterfront homes, which has a community water supply, swimming pool with club house, tennis courts, small golf course, boat ramp and pier. The POA fees are $80.00/year plus $50.00/year for use of the swimming pool.

The Corrotoman is a very pristine river with no large cities or industries along it's length and is host to several nesting Bald Eagle pairs. This house fronts on the Western Branch and the Corrotoman River empties into the Rappahannock River, about 10 nautical miles from the Chesapeake Bay.

The driveway takes you up a hill to a landscaped path leading around the side of the house.

As you approach the deck, the water views are captivating.

The downstream views from the deck are complemented by a river breeze that blows out of the south.

A gently curving stepping stone path takes you down a gradual slope to the waterfront.

The deep water dock has a boat lift and gets you right out into the saltwater for sailing or fishing.

This sand spit makes a nice point and gives wrap-around water views from the house.

This picture illustrates the wrap-around waterfront. What a great "Breakfast Nook!"

The Dining area features a fireplace in addition to the water views..
