Recent Chesapeake Bay reviews

  • Truly the best vacation in years!

    "We looked for a centrally located home to visit with our grandson (and his parents,of course). From the moment I saw this house, I knew it was the one. The owners go out of their way to make their guests feel as though they are home. They keep the house in wonderful condition and provide a local company to call if any problems arise. I loved the book they provide guests with. It explains expectations upon checkout, how to use equipment, local attractions and restaurants among many other useful pieces of information. The house is beautifully decorated with soft seashore shades of paint and collectable nautical items. The floors are all wood. It feels as though the owners have decorated for themselves. It is beautiful. After we booked some updates took place that pleased us very much: WiFi was added and rear porch was entirely screened in. It was the perfect place for our 20 month grandson to play. The lawn was well kept so that he had a large area to play also. There are many games to play, inside and out. We had some small dogs with us. They loved it too. The kitchen had everything you need to make a gourmet meal if you are so inclined. I used the products we brought but it was really nice to know there was backup available to keep us out of the stores and off the road. We had several days where we didn't leave the property. There are things do do if you are more restless. We just needed down time. We found it here. I wish there were words to explain how wonderful and restful this home is. Try it yourself. To see it is to believe it!"

  • Holiday in Colonial beach

    "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"

  • Great Time at Grandview on the Bay

    "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!"

  • Wonderful Waterfront Escape

    "We rented Grandview as a place for guests to stay during our wedding weekend in Mathews; it was perfect. The house is spacious, very clean, tranquil, and perfect for relaxing in the country. The backyard is HUGE; it's perfect for lawn games like cornhole. The owners and the caretaker were very easy to work with; we had no headaches through the whole rental process. From the moment my guests walked in, they marveled at the house. There was enough space that we could spend plenty of time together with space for privacy when needed. We all had such a great time, that everyone is talking about renting a place like this every couple of years, not just for weddings! If we do something like this in Mathews again, we will absolutely rent Grandview for as long as we can all take off work! If you want a memorable vacation rental away from home, at a far better deal than a hotel or B&B, look no further than this house. You'll love it."
