* See guests testimonials at end. *
A little piece of paradise! This cottage is located in Mathews County, VA which Budget Travel has ranked in the Top 5 Coolest Small Towns in America!
With this storybook waterfront cottage you'll get EXTREMELY CLOSE-UP views of the Piankatank River and Chesapeake Bay. Whether you're inside or out the expansive water views are unsurpassed! In fact, I know of no other place in the area where the home itself is so close to the water.
Viewing the sunrise over the water while laying in bed is unforgettable! Watching the sunset illuminate the sky while soaking in your private hot tub on the waterfront deck is sure to leave a lasting memory as well. The water is so close you could cast your fishing line into the water from your rear deck. You'll actually have to go out a little farther to catch the fish but the point is, 'you could'.
While not gazing at the water you won't be disappointed with what the rest of the cottage has to offer as well. It's furnished with top quality furnishings throughout.
Master bedroom has queen size bed with Novaform gel memory foam mattress, den has daybed with pop-up trundle that converts to either king size bed or two separate twin size beds. Both mattresses are memory foam as well. The living room, enclosed porch, and both bedrooms have high definition tv's with dvd player. All 4 tv's have access to satellite tv provided by DirecTV.
Kitchen is fully furnished with refrigerator, microwave, oven/stove, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, blender and garbage disposal.
Don't feel like cooking? Well, just walk out your front door and across the yard to the steak and seafood restaurant known as Sandpiper Reef Restaurant, 'Mathew's Best Kept Secret'.
Kitchen, living room, and both bedrooms have bamboo floors!
Outside on the deck facing the waterfront there is a large hot tub, fireplace chat set to lounge around and take off the chill on those cooler nights, plenty more seating, charcoal grill, and an outdoor shower with hot and cold water.
Quiet community offers residents and guests beach areas, pier, seasonal pool, tennis court, basketball goal, and play ground for small kids.

The cottage's extremely close proximity to the water is probably the closest you'll find in the area when it comes to BIG water views. The private outdoor waterfront hot tub that guests can soak in while taking in the views is also a rarity. The outdoor waterfront fireplace chat set complements the hot tub and helps extend the cooler days. From the endless views looking out toward the Chesapeake Bay to the enchantment of lights across the river at night, these sights and more help create a sense of wonderment that is hard for the eye to look away.
