CHESAPEAKE BAY BEACHFRONT WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS

Mathews Cottage Rental Photos and Description

- 3 bedrooms and one and one-half baths plus outdoor shower. SLEEPS 5. .

Want to get away from it all? Forget the daily grind by visiting Reflections, our attractive Chesapeake Bay beach cottage. Wake up to gorgeous sunrises and unlimited views. Walk the private beach to New Point Lighthouse, the second oldest lighthouse on the Bay. Spectacular sunsets are just a short walk to the Nature Conservatory's overlook on Mobjack Bay. Your backyard is a beach of sugar-white sand. The water is shallow and warm without dangerous waves, undertows and currents. You and your children will love it. How special is it? In February 2014 The HuffPost Travel Journal reported voters across the nation selected Mathews '1 of 15 of America's Coolest Small Towns'!

Reflections' Great room and master bedroom overlook the many moods of the Chesapeake. One bedroom is especially appealing to children - its beds are World War II Liberty ship bunks. Marine artifacts accent the room. The third bedroom features a wicker trundle bed and furniture - sure to suit any young girl's fancy. Reflections is tastefully decorated and so comfortable and relaxing you won't want to leave - ever.

What is it that makes Reflections so unique? You will know the minute you walk into the Great Room. The walls and decorations combine to make an interesting and one of a kind collection of marine art and antiques collected over many years of living and sailing on the Bay. Enjoy original water colors, stained glass and art which highlight the many moods of the Bay. If you're into artifacts you'll enjoy sleeping in the original officers bunk beds taken from a World War II Liberty Ship - a survivor of the German U boat Atlantic campaign. Directional signs from the deck of the famous liner S.S. United States can be seen on the walls of the Great Room along with survival rations and a life jacket from one of its lifeboats. All of this integrated into its beautiful setting on the Bay help make your stay at Reflections truly unique. Still unsure? View the video of Reflections taken by one of our guests, Pulitzer Prize winner and White House Photographer, Ron Edmonds.

Everything we wanted, needed and more!

  • 5 of 5
My Husband and I just spent a glorious week at Reflection's. Beautiful weather and a comfortable lovely home with the beach "front yard" provided us with daily gorgeous sunrises, kayaking with the dolphins, afternoons relaxing on the white sand, and evenings of waterfront dining,(on deck at Reflections) supping on local seafood as the gentle waves and bay breezes provided all the atmosphere we needed. Definitely will be back!!

Beautiful getaway on the Bay

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous stay at Reflections. The Bay is perfect for young children - our boys had a blast splashing in the surf even though they're not even old enough to swim yet, and my husband discovered a newfound love of crabbing. Michael and Barbara made the whole process easy and convenient. I highly recommend this lovely cottage.

Chesapeake Paradise

If you want peace, quiet and beautiful surroundings, this is the place for you. Walking on the beach in the morning and watching the sun rise was amazing. The cottage itself is over and above your usual vacation rental. This is a "home" with all the warmth and charm that you could imagine. You can see the heart of the owners in every detail they have put in the cottage. Michael and Barbara are a dream to work with and we wouldn't think twice about going back and we certainly intend to.

A true slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5
This was our second trip to Reflections and it was just as enjoyable and wonderful as our first trip. The house is perfect for a relaxing getaway. It is a hidden gem that once you experience, you will never forget. We love how this house just seems tucked away from the world! Waking up to the breathtaking sunrise and falling asleep at night to the sound of ocean waves make this place all the more special. The house is clean, the beach is beautiful, the people are nice...what more can one ask for on vacation. The water is calm and refreshing and the beach private. Having a beach as the backyard is a dream come true! A vacation to reflections is worth every penny. You leave feeling refreshed and dreaming of your next visit. We absolutely love it here and so do our boys and are hoping to return in the future. The owners are great to deal with and we would absolutely recommend this property to friends and family.

A Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for providing us one of the best weekends that we have ever had! We absolutely fell in love with your place! The pictures truly do not do it justice!

The rooms were far bigger than pictured and delightfully decorated. We loved the Liberty ship berths. I was continually touring your beautiful cottage and finding some picture or knickknack lovingly placed. A lot of love is in your place.

We walked down to the lighthouse, a delightful journey. We also fished with not much luck but who cared? Fishing was just an excuse to sit and soak up the ambiance. We dined at Richardson's and what a surprise!! I had the chipotle cinnamon crusted tuna with mango sauce and my husband had the stuffed grouper. What a find!

We were so fortunate to have the full moon and the first night, it shown directly into the great room and our bedroom. We slept with the windows open to listen to the soothing influence of the waves. Upon awakening, we watched the sun rise and heard loons! What an incredible morning.

Leaving was the hardest of all...we cannot wait to return!

Thank you so very much for providing just a little slice of heaven for us.

Kindest regards,

DLB & VEM

Ideally situated on Chesapeake Bay, sun, sand and water sports await you. If you tire of swimming, hiking and browning to a golden tan, try your hand at fishing, clamming or crabbing within sight of your own private deck. Kayakers love the many water trails and the chance to paddle with porpoise. If you love nature, you will enjoy the visits from many different migratory waterfowl including herons, osprey, pelicans and occasionally, eagles. The nearby town of Mathews is a quaint 19th century community with old homes and interesting shops. Trips to Jamestown, Colonial Williamsburg and Yorktown allow you to walk the streets of our forefathers and are easy commutes. Busch Gardens, Water Country, Virginia Beach and many fine golf courses are easily accessible. Centrally located between Virginia Beach, Richmond and Washington, Reflections is the ideal vacation site.
