Three bedrooms, one with additional queen futon, Two full baths, covered porch and huge 2nd floor deck with amazing views. Fully stocked kitchen includes dishes, coffee maker and grinder, blender, crock pot, pots and pans and bakeware. Situated in Chesapeake Shores directly on the Chesapeake Bay, this small, intimate community gives you total peace and serenity.
Once again, we vacationed in this wonderful Chesapeake Shores Beach home! A wonderful home away from home. The location cannot be beat. Our family can experience all the fun expected at the beach WITHOUT the dangers of deep water. Aquatic life, walking to the lighthouse, and the peace of a totally uncrowded population. The home is great, and attention given to details, makes this place a great rental. The views from the second story deck is wonderful! Safe area for you and your family. Rick and Molly will work with you to ensure you and your family a comfortable vacation. We have recommended this property to all of our friends! Our favorite place to vacation! Again, don't allow the second row back fool you, this is a wonderful rental, and has great beach access. Several great restaurants in Mathews, and on Gwynn's Island. Great location for day trips to Williamsburg, Gloucester, Yorktown, and Jamestown. A wonderful place to stay!
We suddenly wound up with time for a last-minute getaway for five days during the last week in August, and Molly and Rick were extremely helpful in scheduling it on such short notice. We thoroughly enjoyed both the house and the beach access. The beach is, as another reviewer noted, about 30 seconds away. The kitchen and house had everything we needed - cookware, coffee fixings, extra paper products for kitchen and bathroom, laundry and dishwasher detergent, all those things you never expect to find at a beach house. :) I really appreciated that. The open kitchen with breakfast bar, and the living room, were especially comfortable, and we spent a lot of time there, just hanging out. We also particularly enjoyed the upper deck. It has an eastern exposure, so during hot afternoons, the sun is off the deck, and we had very comfortable shade. We liked the fact that the upstairs queen bedroom has an eastern exposure also, and if we chose (which we did) to leave the blinds up, we could wake to the sunrise. The kids' bedroom (the one with the option for 2 twins) has a western exposure, so the kids sleep in! We purchased the linens package, and I was ever so glad that we did. The towels were plush and ample, with more of everything supplied than we needed, and even designer sheets for the kids' beds. We also appreciated Molly and Rick's immediate, friendly accessibility when we had questions. The house is lovely and the decorations are too, and we enjoyed the total getaway. This was a relaxing and restorative vacation, and we would not hesitate to go back. Oh - lest I forget to mention: Richardson's Cafe, in Mathews, has the most awesome pork BBQ sandwich ever - it is huge, and we had a splendid lunch there. The Food Lion in Mathews will be your nearest grocery option, and it is very clean, with a good selection; I was very comfortable purchasing both produce and meats there. Don't forget the produce guy who parks on Main Street in Mathews with his truck; you pick what you want from the truck bed, then put your payment in through the passenger window. Also, be sure to visit the Mathews County Visitor Information Center. They have a wealth of information about the Middle Neck, not to mention some interesting pottery and art items, and near-irresistible baseball caps and aprons. I may have to return just purely to purchase both of the latter. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and we particularly valued the quietness and private nature of the neighborhood.
I visited this beautiful house with a group of friends over the July 4th weekend. Booking was simple and Molly was an absolute pleasure to work with. I had tons of questions and she very patiently and politely answered all of them. When we arrived, we were more than pleasantly surprised by the size, condition and location of the house. We had a group of 8 adults and we never felt cramped and the house came with a well-stocked kitchen that ensured we could comfortably and conveniently feed the group each day. The house had plenty of outdoor seating so we could enjoy lounging outside and the upper deck even had views of the bay. We enjoyed the easy beach access, which was only about a 30 second walk. Needless to say, we can't wait to return as soon as possible!
Molly, the owner, was a delight to work with! She was a wealth of useful information and so accommodating. The property was very clean and well-appointed with all the comforts of home. It's well decorated and was spacious enough for our family of 6. (2 adults and 4 girls ages 7-17). TV in every bedroom! The home is just as wonderfully described by the owner. It's extremely close to the beach...probably less than 200 yards. We spent hours on the Bay playing games, boogie boarding, swimming, and just hanging out on the beach. We were lucky to have great weather! We went crabbing one day and caught a few. A local waterman sold us a bushel for next to nothing! I highly recommend Richardson's Restaurant as well as Patsy's Restaurant. The seafood is awesome. The kids enjoyed the old-fashioned ice cream counter at Richardson's. Mathews has a pastry shop, The Cake Man. The sweets are divine; I highly recommend the establishment. This property is reasonably priced and a great value for its proximity to the beach. The community is very quiet. 5 stars and we hope to return next summer to this same house!
My family and I vacationed in this great Farm House Charmer. First of all, don't let the second row fool you, views from all the back windows, and the second story deck offer Bay views.. Access to beach right across the street. A TV in all of the bedrooms, and the living room as well. New appliances, renovations, and great location, promise a wonderful respite. Mathews is a gem! If you are looking to enjoy family and friends, without the crowds, this is the place for you. A crowded day for us offered 22 people on the beach besides our family. Great restaurants and neat shops in town, or, a grill on porch for those whom just want to enjoy their time at this neat home.
We stayed at this property over Memorial Day weekend. It was the perfect size for our group of 4. It could have easily accommodated another 2-4 people. Molly was very organized and welcoming. We didn't have any experience renting houses or with the area and Molly and Rick made it extra special. The property is well-maintained, very close to the beach, and a short drive to town. We loved the charm of Mathews and the Bay. We would definitely rent here again.
