Perfect "get-a-way-from-it-all" place!

Perfect "get-a-way-from-it-all" place!
  • 5 of 5
We wanted a quiet and peaceful place to celebrate our 28th anniversary and was very pleased that we found it here at Bluebird Cottage. This little cottage was perfect
for just the two of us, and had everything that we could of needed. As a woman, what hit me first was the smell. Flickering candles throughout the rooms gave off the light smell of
sweet fruit and made the rooms inviting and cozy but for my husband his favorite thing upon entering was the wonderful hum of the Air conditioning which had the cottage cool and crisp!
Owner, Eddie, was fantastic and happy to help us out with questions and tips about fishing, eating and travel. He even took the time to help us get our boat in an out of the water. The
creek out to the Bay is a great place to relax and fish, although we kept wishing the wind would die down just a bit. (Can’t fight Mother Nature). Flounder was big, puppy drum and blues
were fighting and we even caught a Sea Robin. The roads were also great for biking so bring your bikes.

The only thing I wish we could off had at the cottage was our dog, but since the owner has dogs, I certainly understand why no pets are allowed. Other than that, this place is perfect and
we hope to come back again, maybe before our next anniversary, for another long weekend getaway!

This Place has it all!

I had a few weeks off in between job this summer and was looking to get away, spend some time on my boat, fish, read, and relax. The Bluebird Cottage was the ideal getaway! I took the boat across the bay from Lynnhaven (VA Beach) and was greeted by Eddie as arrived at the dock. The accommodations were perfect and exactly what I was looking for. A clean, quiet, relaxing cottage with all the amenities needed for my 3 night getaway. Eddie welcomed me, showed me around the property, offered me use of his truck if I wanted to explore the winery just up the road and made me feel right at home. Since I was solo on this trip, I spent hours on the dock reading, watching, and relaxing. I grilled and ate while watching the sunset each night. It was pure perfection.

Eddie shared the local fishing spots and helped me navigate the waters around the cottage. By far, the highlight of the trip was an evening fishing trip with Eddie where we caught 8 red drum between 40-60 pounds! What an adventure!

Eddie is a gracious host, extremely accommodating, and will give you as much attention or privacy you would want. Eddie made my trip special!

I highly recommend the Bluebird cottage for its location, privacy, amenities, and of course Eddie. I will be back for sure!

This cottage hugs you

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I consider Blue Bird cottage a "Home away from Home". It is decorated with heart and soul to give a feeling of peace and comfort that we all want while on vacation. As Americans living in The Netherlands, we visit annually to check on our retirement property located in near the cottage. During our first stay, Eddie and his partner Thelma, welcomed us into their home and hearts; we are blessed to say that our first friends in VA are truly awesome.

Just a few side notes:

I am a runner thus must say for FYI to other runners: the area is flat, fast and easy to do a quick morning run. An out/back from the cottage w/o traffic is 4 miles, using small side roads off the "out/back" can give another mile.

If coming to this area for the first time I recommend reading "Off 13" by Kirk Mariner. Eddie introduced us to this book, we had to buy a copy for future use.

We did "take out" from "Little Italy" in Nassawadox. Missed having good pizza (not a Dutch thing), "Little Italy" filled us up with good, cheesy, crusty slices.

A wonderful week at The Bluebird Cottage

  • 5 of 5
What can you say about Eddie and the Bluebird Cottage that hasn't been said already? Eddie met us on our arrival, helped us get settled in, gave us a lay of the land and treated us to bottle of wine form one of the local vineyards (which we visited during our stay). The cottage was just as described, comfortable and cozy, well appointed and all the amenities we would need for the week. We visited Cape Charles and ate at each of the the two marina restaurants. Both were good stops, a visit to the more upscale location (can't use names in the review) is definitely a must, good service and good eats. We spent much time in and around the water. Our kayaks were easy in and easy out at the dock and we even brought home some of our catch for the dinner table. Eddie made sure we were well taken care of and was more than ready with dining and tourist advice (stay away from Tangier Island, we learned the hard way). He even took me fishing so I could catch the biggest Red Drum i'd ever caught. Fresh oysters, crab and flounder from the bay was all we could hope for. There is plenty of driving to be done to see the sights, but we knew that going in to it. Kiptopeke made for some nice beach time and was almost deserted at the end of the summer. Make sure you bring what you want to the cottage as the round trip to the market is almost an hour. If you think you might need it, bring it. All in all, we would definitely return as you depart feeling like one more of Watts family!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first vacation in 5 years, so we really wanted it to be special. Superlative! The cottage is better than pictured. The location is wonderful. We fished from the pier (caught croakers and spots), visited the local winery, took naps, used the wifi to tell folks at home what they were missing...and so appreciated the gentle, gracious of Eddie. Booking again as soon as we get home to check our calendars! If you're looking for a quiet place on the water, look no further.

The Pearl of Machipungo

Wow! What great getaway. The cottage and surroundings are gorgeous, very clean and comfortable. The afternoon bay breeze is lovely enjoying it in an adirondack chair. Eddie, your hospitality was second to none. Thank you for the incredible fishing trip and dinner. I feel Alan and I have made new friends.
I cannot wait to come back!
