About Mary Pipkin -
We own and operate a marina and charter fishing service. Our family has been blessed to live here since 1985. It’s quite simply our life. And a good life it is, that we are privileged to share with you. We love our little corner of the world and our business allows us live and work and play on our beloved Chesapeake Bay
Mary Pipkin - purchased this Studio in 2007
Why Mary Pipkin - chose Heathsville
Why Heron's Nest ? We had so many inquiries about where to stay from our customers, we decided to have these lovely cottages built to meet the needs of our regular clientele. It was a greater need than we realized. In addition to fishing customers we now have families, honeymooners and regular folks like you and me longing for the Chesapeake Bay. They come for fun in the sun, fishing and water sports or just the peace and tranquility of being ….. on the Bay.
What makes this Studio unique
This is the perfect place for the action packed vacation. Situated right on the Chesapeake Bay and the Inter-coastal Waterway puts you right on top of the best fishing and sailing in the region. Bring your jet ski, small water craft and use our deep water ramp. Book a fishing charter or dinner cruise (on site) to fine waterfront dining. Witness glorious sunrises and restful sunsets. Sparkling fields of fireflies at twilight. The sounds of the sea birds. Or just relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of a lovely place not yet discovered by most of the world.

Cute bay cottage!
Nice, little getaway! Very drivable from Richmond and just a short drive to restaurants and pretty beach.
We have stayed at these cabins 3 times while we visit our friends in Heathsville, and each time we have been pleased! It fits our family of 4 (2 big kids) comfortably. My kids love the loft, and the beds are plenty big enough and comfortable for my husband and myself. The kitchen has everything you would need, minus the groceries. The cabin is always very clean, and Mary and Billy are great with communication. We will definitely be renting again!
I was more impressed with the pictures online.
To be quite honest, I don't know that I will ever book through VRBO again. I booked two reservations through this company and was not sent check-in information for either one of them. I was sent an invitation code 3 different times which had zero relevance. I was prompted to download the VRBO app in order to access my check-in / arrival information and once I did so, I was still unable to access anything. I ended up having to call only to find out that the check-in is done in person, which would have been nice to know ahead of time, considering check-in was at 2:30 and I was not checking in until 9:30 at night. I was also disappointed that this reservation advertised sleeping 4 people. The 2 people who slept upstairs in the Loft area couldn't even sit up in bed without hitting their heads on the ceiling. You really ought to consider only advertising this for 2 adults.
I’m sorry your experience wasn’t what you hoped for. I’m afraid that is a downside of booking with vrbo. You cannot have a conversation with people. We are very forthright with everyone about the size and sleeping arrangement (including the head room in the loft). There are 2 full size beds that can sleep up to 4. 2 more twins in the loft, so we can actually sleep 6 but, only advertise 4. Children and teens love the loft, being semi private with it’s own light and power source.
This is a “Studio” Cabin. It’s advertised that way and the pictures are very accurate. It is perfect for a small family or a few friends. I always offer / suggest booking two cabins if there is more than 1 family or couple. We also offer, “Sailors Rest”, a large waterfront home (3 bedroom 2 bath) with a private dock.
These tiny houses include a boat slip and free launch . We are on protected waters, right on the Chesapeake Bay with access to great fishing and recreational boating. Being nicely decorated and well appointed with amenities, including completely equipped kitchen, wifi and satellite TV, they are an excellent value for the price.
Check in time is 3PM, clearly stated on the site. As soon as your reservation is confirmed, our phone number and email are visible. I’m very sorry that this was not a good fit for you. May we suggest you check out all of our rentals for a complete comparison?
