Retiring in Williamsburg Virginia

Va Gazette Karen Queen

When they began looking for a place to retire, Jack and Grace Kalberer of Potomac, Md., wanted water, culture, a change of seasons, mild winters and good medical care.Kalberer, a doctor, retired at 61 after 31 years at the National Institutes of Health. He was an associate director coordinating disease prevention in the office of the director. Mrs. Kalberer was 51 then and ready to retire from teaching high school biology. They moved to Williamsburg in 1998.

Like many who retire to Williamsburg, they had vacationed in the area for a number of years. But it wasn’t their first choice in the beginning. They also had considered Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Florida, California, Wilmington, N.C. and Charleston, S.C.

“I happened to notice Governor’s Land advertised in the Wall Street Journal,” Kalberer says. “We were on our way down to Wilmington and Charleston and decided to stop here.”

When they stopped, Governor’s Land was one house existing, one under construction and lots of promises. A little more than five years later, they bought a lot and built a house in the community.

“We are taking advantage of some of the cultural things,” Kalberer says. “We like the outdoor life and attractions in Governor’s Land – tennis, boating. We’re learning golf. It’s a beautiful canoeing area. The birding here is phenomenal. We see great white herons, blue herons, ospreys, eagles, king fishers and everything else imaginable.”

As they get involved in the community, they are impressed by the people they meet. “The level of people who have been attracted to Williamsburg is pretty remarkable … four star generals, CEOs,” he says. “But they tend to be pretty low key regardless of the type of life they have led.” The marina at Governor’s Land was an added attraction. A final consideration that wasn’t in their original specs was quality dining. People don’t often think of eating out until they move somewhere and there’s nowhere to eat except fast food, he says. “That’s a plus around here – there are good restaurants at all levels. That wasn’t in our equation but it should have been.”
