Situated on 60 private acres and surrounded by more than 5,200 acres of wildlife management area and farmland, you will feel a world – and a century – away…

Cary Hill’s comfortable guest cottage, Holly Hill, makes an ideal getaway when you need a few days of peace and quiet…you’ll have to bring your own phone!

The beautiful 60 acre Cary Hill estate is located near the James River Plantations and just a short drive from the Historic Triangle of Williamsburg-Jamestown-Yorktown, fine dining, and outlet shopping! Several great golf courses, as well as seasonal pari-mutuel horseracing at Colonial Downs, nature trails, and boat ramp are nearby.
