Little Bay House sits on a sandy cove of Little Bay, just off Fleets Bay on Virginia's Chesapeake Bay. The wide water is perfect for kayaking, paddle boarding and sailing small crafts. The long private beach is shaded by tall pines and our shore has a soft sand bottom that is swimmable for even the very young.
When our family discovered Virginia’s Northern Neck we found a place with a seaside vibe, natural wooded beauty and small town charm. White Stone, Irvington and Kilmarnock are all within minutes of Little Bay House and all have unique central shopping streets with local merchants; bakeries and delis, burgers and donuts, boutiques and coffee shops.
You can find more details on our website and Instagram profile.

Our site is full of details about where we love to eat, towns and places to visit, where to find the wifi password and the check in and check out procedures. It is your virtual guestbook that you can dig into before, during and after your stay.
We are taking precautions against Covid-19. We offer:
• Bleach cleaning between each family. Cleaners wear masks and gloves and do not clean for 14 days if they have traveled outside of the area.
• The option to check in up to 2 days after the previous guest has checked out while only paying for the nights you stay.
• Plenty of desk spaces and high speed internet for working from the house.
4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, one half bath and one outdoor shower, sleeps 12
Typically our 2,300 square foot home is set up to accommodate three families vacationing together. Since this year is anything but typical, I'll leave it at accommodates 12 with heaps of sleeping and living spaces for all. One side sleeps the kids and the other the adults – that’s how we do it. You do what works for you.
Three sets of twin bunks along with a half bath and outdoor shower accommodate the kiddos – or kiddos who are now adult sized! Can we say heavy duty bunks? Three additional bedrooms accommodate couples with queen beds fitted with Leesa mattresses and pillows (two share a full bath and one has its own). And a board game room with a deep queen Couchbed (yep, Couchbed, Google it) can be closed off. Each room has a white noise machine and blackout curtains.
Common spaces include the board game room, a screen porch that can be closed up and conditioned with the home’s central heating and air, dining room with a large farm table, spacious den for watching tv – we provide you high speed internet, a Netflix account (you may sign into any of your streaming accounts through the TV) and Apple HomePod (this requires your own Apple account or you can stream audio with Bluetooth). The deck has lounging chairs and a picnic table. A charcoal grill sits just off the deck.
We have a long private beach that is our favorite place to be outside when we're here. Among tall pines just off the beach hang 3 double hammocks. A few Adirondack chairs, a picnic table and a swing are scattered among the trees. A large lawn on both the water side and woods side are great for games. And a deck with 4 more lounge chairs and a picnic table are just off the open porch, so you can catch the views from the sun or shade. A fire pit is provided and is great to use on the beach.

We will do our best to be sure each new guest has a starter set of the disposable items listed above. In regards to our vintage candy machine, help yourselves. There is a Walmart down the road in Kilmarnock if you want to help restock with more goodies (you know, if your kids eat them all up!) If you're not going out to the stores, though, don't worry about it!Get the full listing »
