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.

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.
