About Mike and Donna Mills

We love fishing, gardening, long walks and sunset golf cart rides with our children and visiting grandchildren to count the egrets and heron.

Mike and Donna Mills purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Mike and Donna Mills chose Chesapeake Bay - Northern Neck

The property is a true getaway but so convenient to everything in the area. We moved to the main house in 2006 and purchased the cottage in 2012 to have available for famiy, friends and guests. Everyone loves to come to and stay on the island!

Enchanting island cottage

  • 5 of 5

This property is so unique - on it's own breathtaking island. The sunsets are worth the trip and we also saw an eagle!

The cottage is beautifully furnished and decorated. Everything you need for a relaxing commune with nature or as a base for exploring the wealth of area history.

We brought our Arts Council Sr Board and visited all of historical and reconstructed Jamestown areas.

This was a trip never to be forgotten.

The owners are wonderful and the neighbor is friendly and entertaining!

We will return!

Beautiful home in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

This house is great. The views of the river and marshes are breathtaking. The house also feels wonderfully isolated despite being minutes from shopping. All the amenities exceeded our expectations.

We had a wonderful New Year period hanging out in the cottage cooking great meals but also enjoyed exploring the locale and learning the amazing history of Yorktown, Jamestown and Williamsburg

This house was wonderful. Clean, comfortable, and the view was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this house. There were 6 of us, and it was plenty of room for 6. Very nicely furnished and decorated. Very comfortable, and the owners were quite accommodating. Great views of the river/bay. Lots of native birds. Even satellite tv and wireless internet. Far better than any motel, and quite affordable.
