We are a group of women with varying interests, such as crafts, quilting, hiking, sunning, exploring and just hanging out. This house was perfect!! Nine of us shared this house and the weekend was perfect for sitting on the dock, wandering around the area, and catching up on movies. Just what our spirits needed. The multiple common area rooms gave us all plenty of room to spread out and do our things, but keep connected sharing our interests. We can't wait to do it again. Bill is a fantastic host and thought of everything to make our stay fun and relaxing. We will be back!
Perfect vacation spot if you enjoy spending time watching wildlife,fishing, and kayaking.Had fun on the dock checking out crabpots . The house was comfortable and very roomy for taking adult children and grandkids and was nice place to spend time away with family. Bill the owner was very nice and helpful whenenever we needed info. If you bring a boat pay close attention to tides so you get in and out before low tides.Didn't go out looking for things to do enjoyed looking out at water. Saw bald eagles, herons, and osprey.. Caught lots of croaker out in boat... Saw lots of small brown rays and caught a big one.. Had a nice time.. :)
We recently spent a week at Parker Shores and I definitely plan to go back! I happily reccomend this house as a great get away. If you're looking for a quiet, restful vacay -- look no further! There are canoes, bikes, kayaks, fishing off the pier. The house is very comfortable and homey. There were four adults and one child in our party for the week. We all had a great time. The house was nicely equipped and if we needed anything at all Bill was quick to meet our needs. Also, I highly recommend going on the Chesapeake Wine Trail!!!!
The property is big, spacious, extremely well equipped and gives you everything you need to enjoy your getaway. Outside the dock, crabbing and fishing gear, kayaks, bikes, barbeque, firepit and hammock are brilliant. Our 14 and 12 year old always had something to do. The wildlife on view (Golden Eagles, Ospreys) is fantastic, the stars at night and peace and tranquility need to be experienced to be believed. And when Hurrican Irene came to visit, Bill was absolutely superb in his support - gave us the reassurance, knowledge and additional gear we needed, then followed up with a generator and fuel (power was widely out), coffee and news, letting us know all was OK without once intruding - a great host, a brilliant house and a superb location for a get away from it all family holiday. We loved and would go back in a heartbeat. Just make sure you shop before you get there - it is out of the way! Thanks!
Bill, you have a wonderful home and you are a wonderful host! My wife, our 3 kids (ages 9-14), my mother-in-law and my sister-in-law along with our two dogs stayed here during the first week of August 2011. It was a perfect vacation and your home truly fit all of our needs. The foosball table and ping-pong table, the canoe and kayaks and the kids' bikes got plenty of use as did the provided fishing gear and crabbing gear. The house was big enough for us all and comfortable enough to feel like home. Thanks so much for always being available to us and for your wonderful hospitality. We miss the "rivah" already and would love to return again....maybe for an adult get-away and winery tour weekend this Fall? Thanks so much for opening your home to us and for your attention to every detail.
We had a wonderful time at Parker Shores. The house is beautiful and provides you with anything you may need (Really anything. We have never seen a vacation rental so thoughtfully stocked).
The area is very peaceful and the community so friendly. We visited a winery and enjoyed our first Virginia wine (delicious!).
Our dog had a blast and received the title of "Rivah" dog in addition to her "Adventure" dog title which she obtained in Oregon 3 years ago. She did a whole lot of swimming and fetching sticks.
We spent many nights on the dock staring at the stars and taking in the silence.
I tried my hand at fishing...well you can't be good at everything. It was fun trying and I amused my husband at the same token.
We did not want to leave; even the dog was bummed out when she saw we were packing!
Thank you Bill for making our stay amazing.
