"My husband and I spent our 4th visit to The Blue House this past weekend. From the number of times at the house, you can tell we enjoy it! The house has all amenities needed but I do bring some extra pans for cooking and knives. We have tended to eat in making it like our home over the times we've stayed; taking day-trips from our base. We always enjoy walking in Town, visits for coffee to The Local, wine-tasting at The Dog and Oyster, hiking the trails, checking out The Tides Inn and always a meal at Merrior. Laura is wonderful and accommodating to work with and generous with her home. Enjoy!!"

"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."

"My husband and I stayed in this beautiful, well-appointed home over the 2015 Memorial Day weekend. As others have noted, the views from the house are spectacular. The master suite is quite luxurious, occupying the entire second floor of the house. Our son and his fiancée joined us for part of our visit and we all had a great time crabbing and kayaking. My husband and I loved having the bicycles. The area is very beautiful and quiet-osprey were nesting off the front of the property- and we awoke in the morning to the sounds of birds singing. Do visit the local store and remember to order your steaks in advance. They go quickly!
We had a wonderful lunch at Merrior in Topping, followed by a visit to the Dog & Oyster Vineyard in Irvington, two favorite spots for an outing. Williamsburg and Yorktown are less than an hour away, although you may not feel the need to stray that far from this lovely oasis. We are hoping for another visit!
Thank you Shannon!"

"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!"
