Belmont on the Bay is breathtaking inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

Belmont is the most comfortable and relaxing rental we've ever experienced. The owners maintain the home and grounds very well making it just perfect for our stay and not that you need anything, but they are very responsive when we needed help working the DVD, lol. My group has been staying at rentals twice a year for nearly 15 years and we love this place so much that we have decided to make it a regular instead of seeking other rentals.

Belmont can be your home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing time at Belmont. The only downfall we had was not being able to stay longer. We immediately felt at home when we arrived and were greeted with the view of the creek and its beautiful furnishings. The kitchen was very well equipped, there truly was not one thing that they had not provided for our use. It's so nice to go to a vacation home and have EVERYTHING you need. They even provided smores makings (including the roasting sticks) for us to enjoy. Marianne reached out to us as soon as we made contact with VRBO and stayed in constant contact with us throughout our stay, she answered every question and concern we had.

The description of the house was very detailed, the beds were so comfy, the linens and towels were soft including towels for the pool.

We loved using the pier for fishing and enjoyed the pool. It is so nice to rent a home that has a large pool for all of us to enjoy at one time.

I truly could go on and on because there were so many amazing things at Belmont. I believe it is so wonderful because Marianne and Scott are such lovely people and have opened up their hearts and home for us to be a part of it.

We would highly recommend it to family and friends and we are planning on returning again.

We ate several times at Olivia's in the Village and would highly recommend it.

I promise that you will have an amazing vacation full of fun, relaxation, fishing, swimming, good sleep and lots of great cooking.

We thank Scott and Marianne for sharing their beautiful home with us!!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

My family vacationed for the second year in a row same week at Belmont by the Bay. We were so impressed once again by this amazing property. Our fishing experience off the dock was very exciting this year! We were lucky enough to catch several small sharks and a few very large sting rays along with many croaker. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to anyone looking to relax in a beautiful and peaceful bay home!!!

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!
