Overview

Mathews Cottage Rental Photos and Description

- 3 bedrooms and one and one-half baths plus outdoor shower. SLEEPS 5 (3A/2C).

UNEXPECTED FIRESALE!!!!!! 2 or 3 day or 1 week Availability last week in May!!! Our vacancy is your gain. This is a one time offer - won't be repeated. 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.

Pure Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

If you want beautiful views, peace and quiet and a slice of heaven, this is where you want to stay. There's nothing better than sitting on the deck and watching the sun rise. The town of Mathews is close by and we have never met friendlier people. I would definitely recommend the White Dog Bistro for that special meal!! Can't wait to go back!!

Wonderful summer cottage

  • 5 of 5

If you have small children and are looking for a peaceful, safe and beautiful beachfront destination for your family, look no further. The cottage itself is very nice, spacious, and well equipped - with plenty of beach toys to satisfy even the most demanding sandcastle architects. And the location too is fantastic: nice clean sand, private beach, and a stretch of shallow, gentle water - only a few steps from the house. We're planning to come back next year.

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.

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.
