Property description

Enjoy water views from every room. Open air living, dining, kitchen and family rooms provide guests with
all the comforts of home. Four bedrooms and a FROG with 2 single beds.
Waterfront pier provides access for fishing, boating, crabbing and more. Bird watchers will never tire of all the osprey who flock each year to raise their chicks in nearby nests. The blue heron is a frequent guest and looks like a 747 come alive. They croak loudly when disturbed. Keeping the birdbaths full draws the blue birds and cardinals and chickadees..they splash like a toddler in a tub!

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. It was commissioned in 1804 by Thomas Jefferson. 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.

One of the oldest recorded churches in Virginia, KINGSTON PARISH EPISCOPAL CHURCH, est 1652, is situated in a lovely spot shaded by trees and dotted with many headstones of interesting, history making individuals.

SALLY TOMPKINS COTTAGE - Sally Louisa Tompkins was a Southern Belle who became known as the 'Angel of the Confederacy' during America's Civil War. The first female office of the confederate army is honored and remembered as not only a nurse, but a humanitarian, philanthropist, and Captain of Cavalry as commissioned by President Jefferson Davis himself. The cottage, circa 1815, is the oldest wooden structure in the historic district.


The Mathews Maritime Museum, owned and operated by the Mathews Maritime Foundation, houses artifacts, documents, and photographs depicting the history and legacy of Mathews County, the Middle Peninsula of Virginia, and the Chesapeake Bay. Kayakers and canoers alike enjoy MATHEWS MARITIME HERITAGE TRAIL.

GEO CACHING is a great activity for all the family and you will be surprised how many other visitors to the area are playing. A great outdoor activity if you tire of the water and beach.

PICKING BLUEBERRIES at Eastfields Farms. In late summer, the fields are overflowing with blueberries ripe for picking. Before you know it you can have 20 lbs. That will make a lot of blueberry pancakes!


Mathews County prides itself on annual events that draws crowds from all over including arts and crafts

festivals, a farmers market, book sales, Mathews Market Days Street Festival and so much more.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1993

About: World wide travelers from Va Beach search for a retirement retreat for their growing family and grandchildren.Our first grandson came to the water at age 3;he is now 26.Five more grandchildren followed and still visit often. It is our favorite family gathering place. 30 years in the USN,tech positions and then retirement for Jim made him more than ready for the quiet, secluded Mathews homestead.Lou Ann busied herself raising the 4 children,resuming her nursing career,studying music,theology and also becoming a travel agent.

Why Moon, VA, USA:
The owners found the perfect spot for building their retirement/vacation home. The only problem was, the property wasn't for sale. Several years of spontaneous visits forged an amazing friendship with the owner and when he decided to sell the property, he invited Capt. Jim & Lou Ann to take the reins and build their dream retreat. They spent a year in a used trailer,meeting their incredible builder,Bobby Thomas,who took their sketches and built our home. We still honor his memory by calling it 'the house that Bobby built'.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private road, secluded, peaceful, water access for fishing, boating, kayaking, Bird watching,especially the yearly migration of the osprey..arriving March 15 and departing September 15.The nest,west of the house,keeps our binoculars at the ready. Most evenings you will find us on the west porch,watching the sunset over Stokes Creek-it never gets old! The quiet surroundings soothe our souls.
