"Now this is the life!" "A little piece of paradise!" "Livin the Dream!" "It doesn't get any better than this!" Just a few thoughts that may cross your mind when you come for a stay at The Cottage at Misti Cove.
While the name may be simple, don't let that fool you, for so are the best things in life! However, extraordinary amenities run a close second and this cottage offers extra helpings of each for the best of both worlds! Here, you'll enjoy resort-like amenities without resort crowds. Amenities like free WIFI, large outdoor pool, beach area, tennis court, and pier. Extras that even most resorts don't provide like your very own private extra large waterfront hot tub, private waterfront gas fireplace chat set, Relaxation Station ( a waters-edge private beach-like lounging area with adirondack chairs, table for 2, and wood fire pit ), your very own tiki bar, 2 indoor fireplaces, 4 tv/dvd players, 4 owner provided kayaks, 4 owner provided beach chairs, beach towels, 4 owner provided bikes, .......
With this storybook waterfront cottage you'll get EXTREMELY CLOSE-UP views of the Piankatank River at its widest point as it feeds into an arm of the Atlantic Ocean, the Chesapeake Bay, which is North America's largest estuary. Whether you're inside, or out, the expansive water views are unsurpassed! In fact, I know of no other vacation rental in the area where the home itself is so close to the water. Our cottage is the only home in the small 22 home Misti Cove community that is rented short term.
They don't allow homes to be built this close to the water around here anymore. The water is so close you could cast a fishing line into the water from your rear deck. You'll actually have to go out a little farther to catch the fish but the point is, 'you could'. Check out the pictures. The water is just as close as it appears. After all, it's all about the water..... so don't sacrifice on the view. YOU'RE COMING TOO FAR NOT TO HAVE EXCELLENT WATER VIEWS!
Viewing the sunrise over the water while laying in bed is unforgettable! Watching the sunset illuminate the sky while soaking in your private hot tub on your private waterfront deck is sure to leave a lasting memory as well. From here, you'll also be able to soak in abundant wildlife and marine life such as osprey, eagles, seagulls, deer, jumping fish, crabs, sting rays, and many other species known to the area. It'll almost be like vacationing in a wildlife and marine observatory at the same time.
While not gazing at the surrounding natural beauty, you won't be disappointed with the aesthetics of the cottage either. It's been recently remodeled on the outside and the bath has been renovated.

Both mattresses are memory foam as well. The Living Room, Enclosed Porch ('No Wake Zone'), Master Bedroom, and 2nd bedroom have high definition tv's with dvd players.

Kitchen, Living Room, Master BR, and 2nd BR have bamboo floors for that far away exotic feel!
There's more than meets the eye as well. However, rather than take pictures of inside the closets and cupboards, let me just tell you you'll find things like fluffy resort quality towels, a towel warmer, quality quilts/bedspreads, and an assortment of tiki bar accessories to name just a few.
Outside on the deck facing the waterfront there is a tiki bar, propane grill, extra large hot tub and fireplace chat set to lounge around and take off the chill on those cooler nights. If you've still got some energy left to relax, then maybe you could meander on down to the hammock a little closer to the water and rest for a spell. The hammock is canopied by two trees so once you get here you'll have it "made in the shade". Still got a little energy and perhaps feeling a little adventurous? You are now ready for the Relaxation Station... the mini beach-like area with adirondack chairs, a wood burning fire pit, and table for 2 just a sea shells throw from the water. FOR VARIETY, TRY IN REVERSE! Remember, while you're here you've got nothing but time, so why not relax and make it go as slow as possible.
Come stay for awhile and let time slow down. You'll soon find yourself saying, "Now this is the life!"
