Relaxing Retreat in "Downtown" Urbanna Steps from Restaurants, Shops & More

Riverfront vacation home with private pool and kitchen
Welcome to our “Little Key House” – named because Urbanna and our little house reminded us years ago of the charm of Key West. Before your hosts bought and re-opened the Chesapeake Inn in Urbanna, we poured our hearts into this sweet little house, which is small in square feet but big on heart and fun.

With its front porch rocking chairs and white picket fence, Little Key is a peaceful retreat from the stresses of daily life – a quintessential small town escape. The pool, hot tub, and kids toys make Little Key perfect for a laid back family vacation, but the house also works well for a couple or a group of friends. And the high speed internet makes working from Little Key entirely possible – zoom meetings are much more pleasant poolside!

During Oyster Festival, LKH is the perfect home base. It is right on both parade routes (we carry the front bench to the street) and is just steps to the Festival beer garden, oyster tents, live music and childrens rides. It is an oasis from the crowds (and port a potties!) -- it is very easy to enjoy the festival but also relax during the weekend.

And regardless of the weekend, spend your day reading a novel in the hammock, grilling fresh seafood or exploring Urbanna on foot or on one of our bikes. Our house is just two blocks from Urbanna’s best restaurants and shops, a short walk to the cutest little waterfront park you’ll ever see, and three blocks from the Rappahannock River. And we’re happy to share our favorite restaurant, hiking and exploring recommendations – plus our area offers the best antique and thrift shopping around!

And because your hosts also own and run the Chesapeake Inn right here in Urbanna, you are welcome to take advantage of the Inn’s kayaks and surreys, and we include the very same amenities we offer Inn guests – toiletries, snacks and more.

But all that is extra -- Little Key House is really the star of the show! Little Key, which was fully renovated in 2020, has a flowing floorplan that allows both family time and enough space to be alone. The heart of the house is the two story kitchen/dining room with beautiful marble countertops, oversized doors opening to the back deck and pool, and everything you need to prepare your favorite meals, including upgraded appliances, a Keurig and more. The first floor also has a living room, comfortable family room, study with a reading nook/twin bed, a screen porch looking over a rose garden, a bathroom with a river rock shower and the washer and dryer.

Upstairs, the main bedroom has a beautiful King bed and an attached bathroom with the home’s original vintage claw foot tub. The second bedroom boasts built in bunkbeds and a daybed that expands out into a king size bed. Also upstairs is a loft/family room with a queen sized pullout sofa and a balcony overlooking the pool and backyard – the absolute best place for a cup of coffee in the morning.

Outside, you’ll find a spacious deck, a pool, hot tub, outside shower and a fabulous double hammock. At nearly half an acre, the fenced yard is big enough for a casual football or volleyball game and the perfect way to keep your furry family member happy on vacation. And our firepit is a wonderful way to roast s’mores under Urbanna’s amazing star-filled skies.

Come join us for a weekend, a weekday getaway or a week long vacation in our Little Key House, the cutest little cottage in the heart of Urbanna!

Spectacular Cottage
We travel quite a bit but this is one of our favorite places we've stayed. The house is very nicely decorated and quite welcoming. We enjoyed the pool and large outdoor area too. The house is equipped with everything you need. Gari was very responsive and helpful. I would recommend 100% - - you won't be disappointed!

Perfect little get away
This was the perfect place to get away for a few days before the start of school. Our schedules didn’t allow for our usual week at the beach this year. Urbanna is much closer and Little Key House had all we needed: a pool, hot tub, bikes to ride, and quiet nooks for everyone to spread out and relax. Within walking distance of local shops and restaurants, tucked in to a quiet neighborhood, it was a great location! We had a great time cooking, swimming and just hanging out together as a family.

Beyond expectations
It's impossible not to rave about this gem of a property where Gari and Matt have exceeded expectations as they created a wonderful home away from home. Everything you need is here. Outdoors has an expansive yard (pics do not do it justice) that our family (and pup) loved burning off energy running around in. The pool and hot-tub are a great respite - as are all the options for outdoor seating, dining, and relaxing on the porch, hammock, and deck(s). The house is incredibly welcoming with thoughtful touches throughout - including well stocked supplies, a fantastic open-air kitchen and dining space, and lots of fun nooks and spots to snuggle up to read a book or play games that are in supply at the house. The fact they provide an excellent guide with restaurants and things to do upon check in, as well as the option to take advantage of the Inn's amenities was icing on the cake. When we weren't hanging at the house, we were within minutes of kayaking, biking, playgrounds, and wonderful strolls around Urbanna. We are already looking forward to coming back!
