Bill Metzger is originally from Oklahoma, but has lived in Virginia for the past 35 years. Now semi-retired I love living on the Chesapeake Bay and near the small but charming town of Mathews.

The house has expansive views from every room in the house. At least 110 years old this house has weathered many storms and hurricanes. It was a working farm. In this area most farmers also were watermen with fishing boats.

The house has been modernized to today's high standards yet continues to maintain it's coastal farm house charm. It has everything a coastal property should have. A quiet slide into the cove for kayaks, boat loading ramp and boathouse that can accommodate two 36' craft.

The first time I saw this property, it was love at first sight. Nothing beats the expansive views and when the sun is at a certain angle the water definitely looks blue -- thus, Blue Water Haven.

It is a haven from all the worries of the world. Although if you want to stay in touch with the world we have WiFi and TV's in every room.

TOP NOTCH IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5
My wife & I just finished a week long "reunion vacation" at Blue Haven with 3 other couples who've been friends for over 30 years. Website pictures here are good but really don't do it justice. As other reviewers have mentioned, everything has been thought of. Views are spectacular and house is very comfortable. Privacy is easily gained with so many well-furnished bedrooms. Plenty of wildlife to be seen. A large osprey nest is in one of the large trees at the bay-side edge of the property. While boating close to the house, we saw a dolphin. Very very responsive owner. We mentioned our plans to use the grille pretty extensively through the week. The next morning, a brand new grille had been purchased to replace the "old one." Very easy to catch Chesapeake Blue Crabs. Traps for doing so are provided in the large boathouse. And, there's a propane fueled crab pot for cooking the catch. Everything has been well-cared for and is in top condition. Swimming pool too is crystal clear & a very comfortable temperature. We used the provided kayaks (including PFD's & paddles) and the bikes. Again, all are well maintained. By now it's evident that we thoroughly enjoyed the week and found Blue Haven to be an outstanding experience - no exaggeration.

BREATHTAKING AND RELAXING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just returned from a 5 night trip to Blue Water Haven. We had never been to the quaint area of Mathews, but stumbled upon Bill's listing when looking for homes near Williamsburg. The home impressed us as soon as we turned onto the long, tree-lined driveway. And once the home came into view, it took our breath away. The home is situated on a large plot of land which views of the Chesapeake from every angle. My three young kids (7, 7, and 5) immediately jumped out of the car and began exploring. Inside we found that Bill's descriptions and photos didn't do the home justice. Very cozy and chic and we immediately felt right at home. It was also much appreciated that we didn't have to pack and provide our own linens and towels. Everything with the exception of our meals was taken care of - including shampoo/conditioner, cotton swabs and q-tips, lotion, bug spray - you name it. Bill was there to greet us and show us around the home and property which includes a gorgeous pool (too chilly for us to take advantage of), shed filled with bicycles ranging in sizes and a boat house with crab traps, a canoe and kayaks. We also met the property cat, whom my kids enjoyed feeding each day. As far as bedrooms, the layout was perfect. My parents took over the downstairs suite and my husband, the kids and I took the upstairs bedrooms. We spent a lot of time relaxing at the house, taking day trips into Mathews and Gwynn's Island and enjoyed meals at Richardson's, the Seabreeze and The White Dog Bistro. We also enjoyed our trip to The Poddery, where we purchased some great pieces of pottery to bring home. Williamsburg and Jamestown were a short hour trip and it was very nice to be able to return "home" each day. Thank you so much, Bill. We had a great time, would highly recommend to our friends and family and will definitely be back.

A WONDERFUL WEEK

  • 5 of 5
My siblings and our spouses try to meet annually for some quality and relaxing family time! This year we chose Bluewater Haven based upon the location, description, photos and the posted reviews. We had the most amazing week! The house and property far exceeded our expectations! From sitting on the veranda overlooking the amazing water view to biking in the quiet neighborhood to trying our hand at kayaking in the calm waters to enjoying evenings sitting around the fire pit our week at Bluewater Haven was wonderful. The house is well appointed, decorated beautifully and is so comfortable! We do look forward to a return visit!

BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had such a great time at Blue Water Haven. The house was very clean, comfortable and well stocked. And the pool, boathouse, kayaks, and bikes were such a bonus. I actually hate to leave such a positive review because I would like to keep this place a secret, but the owner obviously deserves the business. He knows how to take care of his guests. We cannot wait to return!!
