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 had so much fun at the Fish House. The house itself is gorgeous and has every amenity imaginable, including a wonderful view of the water. Karla and Dave went above and beyond to answer our questions and make sure we had a wonderful time. My brother and I spent most of our time in the kayaks, but he also did a lot of fishing from the docks with some help and guidance from Dave on the best bait for the waters there. We also got a crabbing lesson from Dave. There was so much to do without leaving the property. The decks on the Fish House are great for reading, relaxing, or eating a meal - we even watched the lunar eclipse from there! We will definitely go back and have already recommended it to all of our friends. Maybe next time we'll bring our dogs!"

"We rented the house for my children and the grandkids so that we could be in Mathews for my niece's wedding. Everyone loved the place. The views, setting, and amenities were all just what we needed. My 9 year old grandson can't stop talking about the crabbing, and my son-in-law wants us to all come back."
