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 Hayes
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!

Quiet Seclusion but still near the action
This property is very quiet and relaxing. Lots of birds around and just a good relaxing feel. We had fun fishing on the bridge and at the owner's dock. A short drive to the main road for all your needs and only about a 1/2 hour to all the attractions. York River Charter fishing is nearby and we had a great time catching sharks and cobia. For improvement feedback, the beds were uncomfortable for some. Upstairs the mattress was very firm which was fin for my wife but not so much for me. Owners were very accommodating and had good communication. I'd recommend this to others.
It was a nice place to stay , bf was at ft eustis and this was very close by. However, I’d never stay in that particular area of Virginia if it weren’t for that connection
Perfect Vacation Rental
We really enjoyed our vacation at this lovely property. The house was in perfect location that allowed our family to enjoy some quality time together. It had everything that we could possibly need. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. We hope to be able to return in the near future!
This cottage was beautiful! Right on the water, comfortable, perfect for our vacation. The owners were great to work with and we would definitely come back. The kids had a great time catching crabs in the backyard and watching birds.
Great place to relax!
Great location with great views. Owners were helpful and accessible to answer any questions. Would definitely stay again!!
Loved it so much we came back!
This place is a treasure. The views from Carmine Island are spectacular. The house was supplied with everything we needed. The neighbors, Skip and Ginny are so kind and welcoming. We haven't met the owners in person but they have been great with their communication. Our kids loved the little fiddler crabs and seeing the birds in the wetlands. The sunsets from here are some of the best we have ever seen from the bridge. A photographer's dream.
Our friends loved it so much and said they'll come back too. There is so much history in the area. Skip said that this was the area that Pocahontas and Capt John Smith were in and within walking distance is the chimney of John Smith. We loved going to the beaches in Yorktown and swam. Basically, the house is amazing and surrounded by amazing locations.
Our island cottage is located on a privately owned 15 acre island in the York River. The cottage is only 2 miles from all convenient amenities but you are in your own quiet, secluded waterfront setting with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. The island is less than 15 minutes to historic Yorktown's Riverwalk shopping and beach community. Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Busch Gardens and Water Country USA are only 20 minutes via the Colonial Parkway. This is one of the most gorgeous, tranquil scenic drives in America.
