What's your dream community?  For me and my family, it’s Portobago Bay. This lovely Rappahannock River waterfront community is located just 5 miles south of the town of Port Royal, or 23 minutes from Cosner’s Corner and less than 30 minutes from the Dahlgren Naval Base. We are just far enough out to enjoy the peace and quiet of the country life.

I have been a resident of Portobago Bay since 2000. We built our home here in 2004. Since then, just when we think we’ve seen and done it all, we discover another feature that Portobago Bay has to offer. We love the views across the wide Rappahannock River, the quiet walks around the three-mile circle, the community gatherings at the pavilion, the annual Easter egg hunt, the Memorial Day picnic, the Independence Day cookout, the Summer Regatta, the crab feasts and the annual Trunk or Treat. Portobago Bay started out by drawing interest in 1985 from those looking to retire. Portobago Bay now has residents of all ages. Many families with small children call this place home.

Portobago Bay Largemouth Bass

I recently had the opportunity to take my children out fishing in this community. I took my 11-year-old son, Thomas, out to Lake Powhatan for his first fishing trip with artificial baits. His first cast with a plastic worm yielded a 4 lb. largemouth bass. After several photos, he released the fish back into the lake. Not to let her brother out do her, my daughter, Rachel had me take her cat fishing at the dock. We dug some worms and went fishing. Within a couple of minutes, her rod bowed and she reeled in a perfect eating sized blue catfish. Before long, she had a stringer full. I cleaned them right on the dock at the fish cleaning station. We took them home and cooked them for dinner. We've made so many wonderful memories here.

Portobago Bay has real estate opportunities. I’m considered the top resource for Portobago Bay homes for sale. The homes here are gorgeous with Williamsburg styles and colors. No two are alike. If you are in the market for a new home,  you may want to consider touring the Bay. My family and I would love to have you as our neighbors. Call Tom at 804-513-9179.
