Beautiful and rejuvenating vacation! Perfect trip for all ages.
"My family was a little skeptical of my booking this house in an unfamiliar location. It turned out to be THE PERFECT getaway for all of us (ages 1-65!) It was immediately obvious as we drove down shady country lanes to the property that we were all going to relax during the vacation! The setting is utterly beautiful and peaceful. There is a quiet magic to this area that is unparalleled; it feels like you have stepped into a bygone era when people used to enjoy the simple things in life! With the opportunities to enjoy kayaking (scenic views and historic homes on the river!), picking wildflowers, ping pong tournaments, splashing in the pool, bird watching (with homeowner provided binoculars!), grilling by the riverfront, local seafood, resting in the hammock, s'mores by the fire pit, and unwinding on the comfortable sectional sofa with a great book...how can you go wrong?! Owner even provides super children's book collection! Waking up to the beautiful river views outside of (one of two) master bedrooms each morning, I felt so excited to spend each day here. The other reviewers are correct--even though there are some neat day trip opportunities nearby (we did go to Colonial Williamsburg one day--about 60 minutes' drive), you will not want to leave the property. The house is well-stocked with every single thing you need for a comfortable stay. Food Lion is a decent grocer and about 30 minutes into (the quaint!) downtown Mathews. We returned home and immediately booked the river house for our family vacation next year! Thank you for quite a memorable and relaxing vacation!!"

"We were a party from England of 6 adults and 5 children visiting Virginia for my nieces wedding at Tides Inn.
Pop Castle was perfect for us all . It was just like a visit to a friends house with everything you want in place.
We hosted an English tea party for the wedding guests , many of whom had come from Portland Oregon.
All of us have taken away wonderful memories of a comfortable family house with great views.
The swing will be remembered by children of all ages .
Thank you for sharing your home and making these memories possible"

"We truly enjoyed our weekend at your cottage, it was so comfy and had everything you could possibly need! The location is awesome, within walking distance of the boardwalk area and restaurants. Can't wait to come back!"
