Margots, also known as Eagle's Nest, Eagles Lodge, and Claybancke, is a historic home located near Tettington, Charles City County, Virginia. It was originally built about 1700, as a 1 1/2-story, three-bay brick structure above a basement, until raised by addition of a frame second story in the 19th century. The house measures 44 feet, 4 inches, by 20 feet, 8 inches. It is one of a few surviving circa 1700 medium-sized houses of Tidewater Virginia. In 1973, the property was sold to the Virginia Commission of Game and Inland Fisheries by the Beale Estate.[3]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]
