About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

New 2007 guest house is located on the grounds of a pre-Civil War circa 1850 home, Milford II. The guest facility offers privacy in a lovely setting with water views of Stutts and Hudgins Creek from each room.

Sandy beaches for family fun, deep water, docking facility for boat owners, boat ramp 20 minutes from lodging, plus an excellent area for kayaks and canoes, all combine to create a great retreat for a week or weekend of 'fun on the water.'

Rigby Island (Hole in the Wall) located at the entrance of the Chesapeake Bay is only 10 minutes by boat. Bring your own boat or schedule a sightseeing tour with a stop at the island for swimming or sunbathing.

Very comfortable and relaxed place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time for our Labor Day weekend with another family at this is one of the best properties we have visited. Guesthouse is separated from main house and newly finished. It is very bright and clean with full kitchen and a small deck which exactly as described and in the pictures. Place is at waterfront with private pier and beautiful view. It is also close to a small town with shopping and restaurants (8-10 mins). You have both privacy and convenience. We were told that there is public beach near-by, but we did not have time to go. The thing we enjoyed most was their pier. We caught dozens of crabs, some small fish and one big sting ray! Our lovely hosts Norma and Carl are very nice and make us feel being home. Our only wish is that this property could be closer to where we live. We will be back and definitely will recommend friends

My wife and I and our children only had 2 days here but it was a great stay. The place was super clean and had everything we needed. The owners were friendly and made us feel right at home. Would love to stay here again

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting; the accommodations were "just like home". While we came to ride the TDC 2016 - the weather was not on our side. We would like to come back when we can enjoy the outdoor activities that abound.

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a relaxing and peaceful week. The property is wonderfully situated on Stutts Creek with views out into Milford Haven. The grounds are beautifully maintained. The location is very private but only 10 minutes from town. One of the highlights of our trip was the hospitality of the owners who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We plan to visit again soon.

Wonderful views and grounds.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in this apartment several times and always enjoyed the wonderful surroundings and views. The apartment is bright and clean and, in fact, the whole property is immaculate. The property owners are very friendly and helpful. We were surprised that there was no WIFI service, but the local library is very gracious to visitors and has that service available daily. There's also a laundromat in Mathews, open most days of the week, that makes quick work of that chore.
