About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
Walking into the main floor, you are quickly touched by the sun-drenched feel of the house. With heart-of-pine floors throughout the main floor of the house, all reclaimed from a factory in Connecticut, and windows with expansive views of wetlands and water, the physical structure of the house is complimented by the crisp and clean style throughout. Topping this off, the tin roof is perfect.The open kitchen plan, designed by a local Richmond restaurant owner, makes for a welcoming space for all. A separate eating area, both inside the house and on the screened-in porch, provides ample space to enjoy each other's company over a meal. The living room has stylish but comfortable seating for a nap or a nice long chat. There are three bedrooms on the same floor, with enough privacy and space in each: One has two twin beds, another has a full bed and personal access to the bathroom shared with the great room, and the master bedroom has a queen-sized bed with it's own bathroom and front porch access. The loft space, with two twin beds, as well as a fold out queen sofa, accents the open floor plan and provides another place to lounge and relax.
Catherine's Cove is located only minutes from Main Street, Matthews, where shopping and dining are available, if you want to venture 'downtown'! The house has a well appointed kitchen, so onsite dining can be even better.
DONK'S LIVE THEATRE is just up the road. This 1947 true piece of Americana is the kind of old movie house or theater that the late Charles Kuralt would have stopped at and done a story on for his On the Road Series. Opry singers and talent contests, are just a few examples of how you can walk back in time for a fun, country evening.
NEW POINT COMFORT NATURE PRESERVE is a short 15 minute drive. It provides a unique look at life at the edge of the Chesapeake Bay. The lighthouse is the third oldest still standing on the Bay.Depending on the tide, this site combines tidal shallows, mudflats, beach, exposed pilings, and deep offshore channels, all of which offer their own assortment of numerous waterbirds, lusty displays of fiddler crabs and yellow Seaside Dragonlets, our only truly saltwater dragonfly. You may experience this beauty on the boardwalk, or launch a kayak or canoe there. Located in Mathews County at the southern end of Route 600, Virginia Historical Marker N-89.
HISTORIC WILLIAMSBURG and YORKTOWN, WATER COUNTRY, AND THE WILLIAMSBURG OUTLET STORES are all a 45 minute drive..
We built this vacation home just nine years ago as our vacation retreat from the City. With our adult children scattered about the country, we have decided to share our home with you. Please call or write to reserve your dates!
