"What can I say, I loved this place from the moment we arrived, after a long journey from Scotland it was so good to arrive at this perfect destination, with 2 bottles of wine and beers in the fridge ,The Fish House at Grandview on the bay was perfect for our party of four, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The owners Karla and Dave were the perfect hosts,they made us feel so welcome from bringing us over fresh crab to try, to taking us out on the bay in their boat, and it was great to meet Fredo & Skink their two dogs.We made good use of the pool, kayaks,bikes putting green and barbecue. A highlight of the holiday was a night at Donks Theatre Matthews very own family run Lil ole Oprey, great night.
Matthews Town was a 10 minute drive away with a few restaurants,supermarket and some local shops. Our favourite restaurant was The White Dog with good food and great hospitality, here we met a local couple who kindly invited us to their house and took us out onto the bay in their boat for an unforgettable trip, this just shows the kindness of the people in Matthews. Williamsburg, York Town and James Town were well worth a visit, with excellent designer outlets at Williamsburg. We took a train to Washington DC for an overnight stay, again well worth the trip.
Thank you Karla and Dave for sharing your little piece of heaven with us and I hope to return some day to meet up once again."

"We visited and stayed at another rental home last year for the 4th of July and wanted to find a place closer to Irvington this year. When looking, we found The Blue House and the location is a perfect jumping point for both Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula sightseeing. The house is convenient to the Tides Inn, restaurants, the Dog & Oyster vineyard and the Irvington Farmer's Market on Saturdays in the summer. The highlight of our stay was being able to roll out of bed and watch the local 4th of July parade, which walks right in front of the home. We enjoyed a few days trips this year to Mathews, Urbanna and Kilmarnock. Of course, no visit to this area is complete without a stop to both Merroir and Northern Neck Burger. If you like to read in bed, pack a book light. We highly recommend this rental home and a visit to this area if you haven't been. It's truly a wonderful small town and a nice getaway."

"Our stay at the Crab shack was amazing. Everything was provided for us at the property. There were binders full of information and directions to local attractions, dining, groceries, Etc. Karla was fantastic, she showed us how to crab and then clean the crab that we caught on the pier right outside of our vacation home. The sunrise and sunsets over the bay were perfect. Also the view from the top deck at night was an explosion of stars. Everything was extremely easy from first contact till our last day."
