This lovely and stylish home is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, a quiet retreat, a great place to chill after a bike ride or a day of kayaking or golfing. Conveniently located walking distance to almost everything that charming Irvington has to offer. Situated on a lovely half acre lot between the renowned five star Tides Inn Resort and the Hope and Glory Inn, the Blue House offers privacy while just moments to it all! Historic Irvington, VA has been called 'Mayberry meets Manhattan.' Enjoy this quaint quintessential waterfront village without sacrificing great dining, shopping or style. Our house is an easy stroll or bike ride to a delicious meal at Nate's Trick Dog Cafe, great coffee and more at The Local, and the Chesapeake Club at The Tides Inn. The local shop 'The Dandelion' will keep you in style, and the gallery 'Objects' are also just up the street. The Tides Inn offers amazing spa services and an upscale gift shop. Enjoy history? Walk to The Steamboat Museum. Christ Church is one of the oldest churches in the nation and is just a short drive. There are many other historic sight nearby. Rent a boat for fun or fishing. Golf at one of the famous local Irvington courses, The Golden Eagle, or the King Carter. In warmer weather on the first Saturday of the month, Irvington hosts a wonderful Farmer's Market in the town square (yes, you can walk there as well!) An open air market featuring farm fresh produce and meats, crafts, plants, and something for everyone. There are other markets in nearby towns as well. Two miles to the east is the wonderful town of White Stone. Stop in at The River Market or Bentley's for lunch or dinner, visit Seven -- a sinful Martini bar, or shop for fashionable clothes and accessories at Farm. Take scenic Windmill Point Road to the Pelican Tiki Bar and enjoy drinks and watch the sunset of the Chesapeake Bay. Kilmarnock, VA is about a seven minute drive. There are great high end and casual restaurants there as well: Rappahannock Grill, Thai Pot, Carried Away Cuisine, Savannah Joe's Barbeque, and The Car Wash Cafe. Great antique stores, upscale shopping and RAL -- the Rappahannock Art League Gallery are all worth a visit. The Northern Neck is known for its festivals, parades and events. All summer long there are things to do and see. The Fourth of July features local small town parades with vintage cars and fire engines. The Irvington Parade goes right by the house. Dogs are considered on a case by case basis with an additional fee. Please contact us for details. Lodging is subject to state and City of Irvington sales tax. Please note we always have a two day minimum as we do not charge a cleaning fee. Holidays may require a three or four day minimum. Plan a trip to our house and let the stress melt away!More

About the neighbourhood
Irvington is nicknamed 'Mayberry meets Manhattan.' The area is steeped in history. Irvington has a rare blend of sophistication and charm not often found in small towns. It's fabulous, friendly and fun! The Blue House is an easy stroll to the Trick Dog Café, The Local Coffee Shop, The Steamboat Era Museum, and the amenities and restaurants at The Tides Inn.
Getting around
The downtown shops and restaurants of Irvington and the Tides Inn are walk-able from the house (half a mile or less.) A car is necessary for getting around between towns, although there is a trolley that runs between the towns of Irvington, Kilmarnock and White Stone in the summer months.
