Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks for a very relaxing and productive stay at Bay House!

What an amazing view you have there! I could not stop sitting out by the water with the binoculars waiting for the next nautical species to come by some miles off ... or watch the stunts of the ospreys -- hoping the young one down the way finally flies soon ... or speculating if the couple of teeny, tiny non-moving objects on the horizon were on Tangier or Smith Island.

And, if that wasn't enough, I was able to enjoy my hobby of radio listening by putting up an antenna and taking advantage of the near-coastal location to hear stations I can never hear back home in Alexandria.

I hope to come back again, maybe this fall, and bring my wife along. I know she would enjoy it as much as I did.

Perfect escape from it all and still have it all

  • 5 of 5
I spent a wonderful weekend in the off season on personal retreat, and could not have asked for a more ideal setting. With panoramic views, absolute peace, and every possible amenity, this is truly a home away from home. The hosts see to your every need. I enjoyed watching birds, boats and the weather change from day to evening and day to day while I relaxed, cooked and recharged for the year in comfort.

My family would really enjoy a week here during the summer because we enjoy each other's company and don't need tons of constant commercial stimulation, but this property is close enough to fun attractions to provide lots of options. This is definitely on our short list for summer possibilities.

Serenity Bayhouse

  • 4 of 5
We liked the house. For this time of year, when the wind and the chill/rain came thru we couldn't enjoy the outdoors; it would have been better if there was a game-room with a pool/ping pong table. There wasn't cell phone ability which we weren't prepared for. So, the young adults were a bit at a lose\.

Owner's Response: We have debated the need for a "game room". We may renovate the garage in the future for this purpose. Regarding cell phone service, it can be spotty depending on your carrier, which is why we make note of this in our pre-arrival instructions. Most of our guests have actually told us that they appreciate the properties value to re-bond with family members with games and videos provided at the house.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed in April 2013 and found the house perfect for our vacation. Traveling with 9 year old boy and girl, mother in law and wife, we all fit very comfortably. The kids had a great time kayaking in the bay. Grandma had a great time winning with her grand daughter at Pictionary. All very good fun!

Totally on Point!!

  • 5 of 5
Let me first say that, the home owners and property manager made the who rental process so delightful. What an awesome home and location. The view was truly breath taking and the atmosphere was peaceful, charming and satisfying. The house offered all the amenities of being at home. The bunkhouse was a "BIG" hit with the youth. The only disappointment experienced was that we rented at a bad time for fishing. My family and I hope to return again. Thank you for a dream vacation!!

We had a very nice time during the two weeks that we spend in August.The children ( 9 years old ) were very happy to swim easely when we stay at the house and kayaking with there father.Every body appreciate the landscape.When the weather was not too hot we liked to have dinner outside.
All the lising description of the location was right and complete and we never had before in France description so complete and exact with all the information about the stores and things to do in the country . We can recommend this house to our friends.
