Wonderful vacation destination!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed staying at Belmont! It was perfect for the grandparents who could stay in the first floor bedroom with its own bath. The rest of us stayed upstairs with the kids. The house is very charming and fully stocked! It was great having all the bath towels and pool towels provided. Everyone enjoyed the pool and sitting on dock to catch the summer breeze and sunsets. We caught crabs, fished and Kayaked. The big lawn was fun for yard games and we loved the fire pit for roasting marshmallows under the stars! So relaxing, quiet and peaceful. We hated to leave this special place but look forward to returning in the fall or again next summer!! The owner is very responsive and wonderful to work with.

Beautiful Waterfront Home in Mathews, VA

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Mathews County, Virginia, for several years now. This time we reached out to the owners of Belmont by the Bay. Belmont is a classic Virginia country home, yet with a big, renovated kitchen, a lovely swimming pool and all the modern conveniences. Its long screened porch, gazebo and dock make outdoor living just as enjoyable as the formal living room and comfortable family room.

And beyond the lovely home and sprawling property, the owners were gracious and helpful along the way, to ensure our stay was trouble free. Our three children loved our long weekend there. It is a quick drive into the town of Mathews as well.

We would be delighted to return again someday to Belmont by the Bay!

Awesome family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the historic Belmont Manor. The proximity to the river/bay, plus the wonderful pool, combined with an aura of history, all made for a wonderful stay. The house was very well kept and the owners were so thoughtful, providing so many of the vacation essentials right down to "smores" fixins for the fire pit. The house is located close to historic Jamestown, Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg, which we enjoyed tremendously. We also fell in love with the quaint town of Mathews Courthouse and all of its history. RIchardson's restaurant, which is in an old Rexall drug store with the original soda fountain, was a treat. Our children caught blue claw crabs and large fish from the dock. Simply a wonderful relaxing vacation. Can't wait to go back.

Our most memorable family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What an experience for all! The Belmont is absolutely gorgeous and so charming. The historical home is well kept and breathtaking. The view of the water is out of this world! We took our 3 young children with us who had an absolute blast! There are fiddler crabs and periwinkle snails by the water which they loved. We put both crab pots in the water and caught over 2 dozen blue crabs. We also paddle board up and down the river and saw tons of fish, skate, and osprey. We would love to make Belmont an annual family vacation.
