LOVELY PLACE TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my boyfriend and 3 friends over a long weekend when we were in town for a wedding. The property was beautiful and a great place for us to gather. Everything was clean and well-kept. The kitchen had all of the necessary supplies and there were extra towels and linens in the closets. Our favorite part of the house was the back porch and private dock! It was so relaxing just to sit and watch the wildlife and boats go by. Martin and Keith were so nice, always available by phone and email leading up to our stay. They met us at the house to show us all the bells and whistles and were then available by phone if we needed anything. This house is great if you're looking to get away from it all and enjoy nature. Mathews is a cute little town with shops and a couple of restaurants as well as a grocery store, but its about 20 minutes away.

Our family visited the Mobjack Bay Cottage in June 2013 and we really enjoyed ourselves. We arrived on a Saturday morning at about 130am and Martin was kind enough to meet us and give us the tour of the cottage and show me where to find the coffee at nearly 2am!!!!!!!! Who does that????? Martin does!!! :-) We appreciated the tranquility and beauty of the area. Martin and Keith are both second to none!!! They were very hospitable and never wavered from being just as friendly as can be. When you're on vacation, you especially appreciate the welcoming faces and kind hearts and Martin and Keith possess both and so much more. We were welcomed with open arms. The cottage offered beautiful furnishings and comfortable furniture, cooking utensils and everything we needed for a great stay. The carpeting is so comfortable that half of the time, we just laid out on it, instead of enjoying the chairs! We enjoyed several outdoor activities: kayaking, fishing, collecting sea shells, a sailboat ride in nearby Yorktown and visiting the multitude of nearby beaches that are all close to Mobjack Bay. We especially appreciated visiting the Mathew's Visitors Center and speaking with Scott. Scott was extremely friendly and helpful and reminded us of why we loveeee small towns. We are also big fans of local libraries and Mathew's Library did not disappoint. The library director even came over and visited with us! It's two stories of beautiful library materials and they even have a children's library that we did not want to leave. If you enjoy home cooked food at a super, reasonable price (and who doesn't???), you'll enjoy Richardson's Restaurant across the street from the Mathew's Visitors Center. We also visited Southwest Pizza, which was a little pricier, but the portions were enough to last for dinner one night and for lunch two days!!!!! The local Wal-Mart is pretty close, but Food Lion and Dollar General are even closer. One of the folks we miss most is Ms. Alice. She is the queen of the Compass Marina and we could always look forward to Alice welcoming us in her own special way. You'll have to visit with her! Another special feature is that the cottage is ideal for people with disabilities, as it features a wheelchair ramp and main floor master suite with a hand held shower head and much more. Thank you, Martin and Keith, for making us feel like family. We appreciate you and can't wait to visit you again! God bless, Aimee, Tony & Chris :-)

PEACEFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Mobjack Bay cottage. The house itself is fantastic, especially when you factor in the views. Sailboats constantly sailed back and forth, which we loved watching. Tiny crabs scurried about, which even our 6 month old chuckled at a few times, and silly, but a big part of our stay: our 14 year old and I logged some major hours constructing puzzles. We couldn't remember the last time we put puzzles together. We did 4 while we were there and loved fiddling with every single piece. The simplest things can bring relaxation. My husband loved the constant bay breeze. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were spacious and the kitchen had every pot, pan, dish, tool, and gadget imaginable. We hope to come back and enjoy the serenity of Mobjack MANY times through the coming years.
