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.

A wonderful week

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!

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!!
