Whitepine Cottage

Enjoy your vacation or weekend outing at Whitepine Cottage. Nestled among towering red and white pines, this very private, four-bedroom cottage on the Upper Conroy Rapids on the York River is the ideal rustic retreat for those wishing to escape the hectic pace of city life with a traditional cottage experience.

Whether relaxing on the deck to the sounds of the rushing water and wind in the trees, lounging in the cool water in one of many river pools, hiking the surrounding forest trails, or taking to the water with either kayak or canoe, Whitepine Cottage is the perfect spot to wile away the lazy days of summer.

Whitepine Cottage is also the perfect place to re-energize your creative side—whether you are a writer, painter or photographer, you will find no shortage of subject matter for inspiration.
