The Misti Cove Cottage was the perfect long weekend getaway. Many comfortable spaces for rest and relaxation and the views did not disappoint. The property owner provided timely responses to all of our inquiries and we found the description and photos of the property to be true as posted and described. The only drawback was lack of beach access. Nearby property owners don't allow visitors to walk a few short steps to the strand of sand to the east. Instead, one has to walk west to the pier and then kayak down to the strip of sand. It's not exactly walkable from the pier, even at low tide, because the "walk" would have been in knee- or waist-deep water. This simply was not feasible for the elderly members of our party. Nevertheless, we made the most of it and drove to nearby public beaches to get our toes in the surf and simply enjoyed the Misti Cove beach from afar, as part of the viewshed. We also really liked the neighborhood pool. The interior of the home is bright and cheery, loaded with beach-y decor. The small town of Mathews is nearby, with several decent restaurants (Lynn's Diner on Rt 198 came highly recommended for seafood by several people we asked and did not disappoint). We also took a chartered boat tour on the East River with Trey who owns Chapel Creek Oyster Company. The tour departed from the Inn at Tabbs Creek (lovely place!) and over about 2 hours we learned many things about the historic properties in the area (there's a tide mill that ground grain for General George Washington's Army during the Revolution's Yorktown battle nearby), and the way of life for watermen and women, both historically and current day, on the Chesapeake Bay and surrounding areas. We look forward to returning again -- hopefully soon! Many thanks to the property owners for maintaining such a cozy cottage for folks like us to enjoy over an extended weekend stay!
