3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6
When you can finally get away, isn't nice to feel special and pampered? Fish Tales gives you a beautiful master bedroom with Queen Kingsdown luxury set with custom decorating and TV in closet for those who must sleep with your favorite stars (and not the ones in the sky)! The lovely second bedroom with queen size bed and antique headboard is so comfortable you may sleep later than you have in years! Kids often fight for the third upstairs 'super' size loft-bedroom with two full sized beds and TV! Some adults like to push the beds together for a super sized king sleep. All have either a view of the river or woods, or both! Every attention has been paid to the comfort of our guests from double pillows per person to cotton linens. You'll enjoy the treat away!

About Catherine Bennett, Realtor®, Real Estate Broker & Owner
Hi, I'm Catherine Bennett, a full-time real estate Realtor and principal broker. After showing and selling hundreds of waterfront properties here since 1996, it was time to find a waterfront getaway of our own! Robert is an architect, professional engineer and Class A contractor so renovating this home is a delight for us. We're constantly updating and decorating, and are eager to share this special property with you.
Catherine Bennett, Realtor®, Real Estate Broker & Owner purchased this house in 2001
Why Catherine Bennett, Realtor®, Real Estate Broker & Owner chose Lancaster
This property appealed to us because: First, it is located right on the Corrotoman River, my favorite river because it is very clean and excellent for fishing and boating. It is THE river for sailboaters! By "right on the water", I literally mean it is built about 25 feet from the water. Waterfront homes are now allowed to be built no closer than 100 feet from the waterfront. Second, it has an amazing tidal pond that serves as a grocery store for the local waterfowl and habitat for ducks, otter, and other fascinating woodland creatures. You'll be amazed at the drama that nature unveils daily, including the awesome birdwatching right here on the Atlantic flyway. Third, it has a floorplan that makes it cozy for a couple or excellent for more people with gathering and private spaces. Two fireplaces make it charming in winter and the wrap around porch with screened porch below makes outdoor living in Virginia's excellent weather ideal. And because I love tall rooms, the vaulted ceiling in the front half of the first floor makes it wonderful! Fourth, it has woods on two sides, the river on the third side and on the fourth side, up the hill, is one neighbor. You can't get much more privacy! Fish Tales is 1.3 acres, including the tidal pond that is accreting, the opposite of eroding! Fifth, it is in Corrotoman By The Bay, a wonderful little community with a terrific salt-water swimming pool, beautiful professional quality tennis courts with pickleball. Free exercise equipment and wi-fi at the clubhouse, playground, and many other features. Parties, parades and other events are highlights of this area and the neighbors are a true delight.
What makes this house unique
It's true that we have cable wi-fi, the best we can get here. The service is through Atlantic Broadband and it allows you to stay in touch for wi-fi meetings, work, and school. Most guests comment on the incredible views throughout the house of one of the most beautiful rivers in Virginia. There's occasional kayakers, fishing boats, and sailboats that distract you from the awesome birds and wildlife who live on and follow the river. They also love how beautiful the house is and the wooded setting. Best of all, they love that we welcome your family dog! The picture is of Robert with our darling Old English Sheepdog, Fanny, enjoying a few minutes of snuggle time in the living room at Fish Tales. The sofas are leather so they are dog-friendly.
