A little piece of Heaven here on Earth

Riverfront vacation home with private spa tub and kitchen
Spring is here, and the Cove is alive with wildlife. Little Wicomico Cottage is perfect for a get-away!

July 4th is still open!

*** Due to the Coronavirus, we have instituted a 4 day breathing period between all bookings this year to allow time for the virus to die and to do our best to assure that you and our cleaning staff are as safe as possible. ***


It is amazing what you see while sitting in the sun room. Last year in April, we saw an eagle being dive-bombed by two Osprey in the cove. He landed in the water and used his wings to swim to shore, It was like watching the nature channel!

Little Wicomico Cottage is located on a cove off the Little Wicomico River in the Northern Neck of Virginia. The Chesapeake Bay is accessible by boat. There is a boat and Jet Ski launch within a quarter of a mile of the cottage. Vir Mar Beach, a small local beach, is 3 miles away by road.

This is a no smoking home. Ash Trays are provided outside.

The Sun Room
Adjacent to the Dining Room, the Sunroom provides a location to decompress and watch the water and the wildlife. Eagles, ospreys, otters, foxes, deer, herons, and songbirds have been seen from this room. 5 o'clock Fred is what we call the blue heron that shows up around 5 o'clock every evening. Oscar, the otter shows up periodically, swimming through the cove. Bill and Hillary, our Eagle pair, are around every now and then. Bill gets around.

The Outdoor Spaces

The property is beautifully landscaped and offers spectacular views from almost every room. The breezeway is a great gathering place for bar-b-ques, crab boils and enjoying the breezes from the water.

The front lawn is wonderful for playing ball or crocket.

Relax in the hammock while reading a book, or watching the cove.

Enjoy sitting out on the deck at the picnic table under the umbrella.

The dock is a great place to fish or catch crabs and to tie up your boat or jet ski while staying with us. There are fishing poles in the breezeway.

The dock has stairs for water access.

5/5 Excellent

So relaxing
This place was amazing. Just what my family of 8 needed to get away from the real world. We were able to reach the owners whenever we needed them and they left treats for our puppies and kids. Very nice and so clean. I would recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be returning.

Very Quiet and peaceful
This is a very well maintained property. Very clean. Can watch the oyster boats while sipping morning coffee and watch the sun set over the river in the evening. Great place to walk the dog; almost no car traffic. Fire in the fireplace in the evening was perfect for the cool windy evenings. Sure the warm weather months have more activity and traffic, but would certainly return for another stay.

So peaceful
First, the owners are such wonderful people to work with and very accommodating. House has everything labelled, so things are easy to find. Mornings here are really something special. Watch the sun and mist over the water as little fish jump while you enjoy your coffee or tea. You could swim off the dock in warm weather and we enjoyed quiet time out one evening at sunset on the Cano. We highly recommend this home and it's owners. 🙂
