Urbanna, Virginia - A Virginia harbor town.

Urbanna, Virginia – A Virginia harbor town.

Located on a deep creek harbor off the Rappahannock River near the tip of Virginia’s Middle Peninsula, (just south of the Northern Neck), the quaint town of Urbanna is evocative of a small New England town embracing progress without compromising its love of the past. Here, a drug store with a soda fountain dating from 1930 coexists with an upscale coffee shop just across the street.  Oyster and Crab shacks do a thriving business as do newer restaurants that feature innovative, contemporary menus.  Two graceful and traditional B&Bs coexist with a newly remodeled motel whose interior more closely resembles a lavishly-appointed high-end hotel.  A modern art gallery worthy of Kennebunkport shares space with an old-fashioned  auction hall.

Come and enjoy an easy going lifestyle… like no other!

Urbanna town clockResidents of Urbanna love their small town and eagerly welcome visitors and guests to share in the rich culture and history that abounds.  This 300-year old town with a population of 500+ boasts seven Colonial-era buildings in town that have been in continuous use since the late 1700s.  Four of these are on the National Register of Historic Places.

From March through October, you will be charmed as oystermen, sailors and power-boaters bound for the Chesapeake Bay ease around each other in the town’s harbor. In November of each year, Urbanna hosts the famous “Oyster Festival,” attracting thousands of visitors who sample oysters — fried, roasted and raw on the half shell — and to purchase arts and crafts. The streets of this small town, lined with Victorian- and-Colonial-style houses, are vibrant during this festival and others, like “Art on the Halfshell,” and the new “Cocktail Boat Races.”

Urbanna has been referred to as “sort of like a miniature Annapolis – a place on the water where history, contemporary culture, picturesque sights, tourists, new residents, old-timers and boaters all come together.”

And now, on the harbor, we offer you casually elegant, maintenance-free living at The Residences at Oyster Harbor! 

Your Pearl awaits you!
