We wanted to celebrate my husband's 65th birthday on the Chesapeake Bay so we choose the area of southeast Virginia. We needed a place that would be comfortable for 3 adults and this home met our requirements. The cottage was very nicely equipped and the kitchen setup was the best we have had at a Homeaway rental. The beds are very comfortable and no one had any trouble sleeping. One of the best benefits was - we were far enough for the city lights to really view the stars a night. On Friday we spotted a bald eagle and a blue bird... total shock and amazement. We were able to relax in the hot tub and get in some exercise in on the bikes. My husband has never sailed on the bay or had fresh crab cakes and he got to do both. Robert was very helpful and directed us to the Neptune Festival which was having a regatta has part of the celebration. My husband was able to catch a ride on a 37 foot f sailboat for the Neptune Atlantic Regatta and he had a blast! Afterwards we had dinner at the Surfrider and the crab cakes were perfect. We highly recommend the Mathews area for the peace and quiet - and the drive is not difficult into the Newport or Norfolk. The only thing I can think that would have improved our stay would have been the addition of a grab-bar to assist getting out to the footed tub, otherwise it was wonderful!
Thank you Robert!
