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.
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.
