"Had a great time in Colonial beach. Property was excellent , clean , well maintained and Jim and Glenda were very helpful and friendly. Lovely area for a quiet stroll. Easy access to local Civil War sights and Washington. Freidrecksburg was particulary interesting. Birdlife was great, especially the local bald eagles"

"I recently booked a group ranging from toddlers to seniors for a stay at this location. When we turned into the driveway for this property, it was a "booking.yeah" moment for the group! The view here is spectacular. Several in our group had made plans for area activities but canceled these as the week progressed in favor of enjoying time at the property. Everything that is advertised on this site is true, but the house is far better than advertised. From the thoughtful extras the owners have put in the home to the cleanliness and quality of the property, this location will be one of our favorites for years to come. We have already referred others to make reservations for next year!
We also rented the guesthouse for our stay and this additional building was MUCH nicer than expected. If you are considering the extra building, it is just as enjoyable as the main house.
While it is true that the location is away from major roads and businesses, grocery stores, Wal-Mart, and shopping are a shorter drive than we anticipated. The fishing, pool, and views were wonderful.
This was one of the more relaxing experiences my group has enjoyed. I highly recommend this location to all interested parties!"

"We chose this area because we had never been there and we traveled with elderly parents, so the house was a dream. Bill the owner was fantastic. We had car trouble on our way to Virginia and he directed us to a mechanic and did some chauffering for us. He also was available for other minor things we needed and directed to the seafood place. The layout of the house was very open. My dad uses a walker and was able to easily get around the house. Lots of space, there were five of us on this trip and we could all be in a different part of the house if we wanted to. Very comfortable beds and seating. We also were able to fish off the dock. My dad caught a small fish and was really excited, he hadn't fished in awhile. We took my mom to a winery and a small town about an hour away. We also got to see some historical areas. Washing tons birthplace and a couple of battle sights. Overall a great trip, many memories made. We would recommend this house and area for a peaceful, relaxing week. Thank you Bill"

"Our stay at Grandview over Thanksgiving was most enjoyable. Upon our arrival, everyone - people and pups - were enthusiastically greated by Karla, one of the owners. Any questions we may have had were answered and the Fish House was graciously prepared, both for the people and the pups! We enjoyed our morning and evening walks around the 'neighborhood' - the scenery and views from and around the cottage were stunning - and we found the Fish House a great place to return to each day following family gatherings. We would highly recommend Grandview on the Bay to anyone looking for a place to stay when traveling to / through Mathews. There is a lot to enjoy about the cottage and the area - all enhanced by the warm, welcoming hospitality of the owners!"
