Beautiful serene setting and lovely large home and property

  • 4 of 5

It was after dark when we arrived, and we awoke to a gorgeous view of the bay, and a lovely back yard with squirrels and huge mature trees. Obviously a property with a lot of history, the common rooms were well appointed and comfortable. The kitchen was amazingly well stocked with every pot and utensil imaginable. The bedrooms upstairs were older, for sure, but clean and with very comfortable bedding. We had 3 adult couples, and the configuration was 1 BR downstairs and 2 baths (opposite of the bedrooms) so that was awkward for our group, but we knew that going in. We could tell this would be a stunning place in the summer with the pool and dock, etc. Nice! The little town of Mathews had a cute country restaurant and we happened in during live music night. The owners were responsive and the property was well maintained. Yes, we'd recommend it.

Laid Back Perfection

  • 5 of 5

On the water views, quiet sounds of nature, and the romance of history await you at Belmont.

The completely stocked home (from condiments in the double fridges to shampoo in the showers) is a fantastic retreat from every day life.

Fishing and crabbing off the pier, swimming in the pool, relaxing to the soft calls of birds in the Florida room, and dining in front of an 180 year old fire place are all fantastic ways to spend your time on the grounds.

The owners also thoughtfully leave local recommendations of restaurants (we loved Lulu Birds!) and areas to visit. Busch Gardens and Williamsburg are also close -- and always amazing ways to spend a day.

Belmont was a phenomenal and memorable way to spend time with family, and we cannot wait to return!

Relaxing in Mathews

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of grade school buddies who get together for a Girls' Weekend each fall. This year we decided to come to Mathews and we stayed at Belmont Manor which was a great decision! Spacious well-appointed home with a beautiful pool, large yard and a spectacular waterfront view. Great location between Mathews and Gloucester Courthouse but the best was relaxing by the pool on the terrace or the large screened porch enjoying each other's company and the gorgeous view. We even saw dolphin out front one morning! Thank you, Marianne and Scott, for sharing your beautiful home.

Beautifully maintained historic home.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I visited Belmont by the Bay for a week long vacation. There were 10 of us and we never felt crowded. The bedrooms were a good size and the beds were very comfortable. There was a problem with the air-conditioning on the second floor and when we called the owner and she handled the problem quickly and efficiently. It was a pleasure dealing with her. We found our best days were when we went out to Williamsburg or other attractions in the morning and returned mid-afternoon and used the pool later in the day. My grandchildren are 2, 3, and 5 and the pool and outdoor space were wonderful for them. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at this lovely home.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Just took a recent trip to Belmont by the Bay with family and WOW we had a blast. The home is beautiful. We had fresh crabs and oysters right off the dock in the back yard. The pool was very clean and water felt great. We took a local fishing carter out to catch Spanish mackerel and Blues. The BEDS & PILLOWS in this home are unbelievable, better than home and that's hard to beat! So glad the owners were able to share such a wonderful vacation with my family that I won't forget!

Fabulous Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from our week long stay at Belmont Manor. The home and grounds did not disappoint. Our 3 daughters and their families traveled from as far as Phoenix and Seattle and us from Cleveland. There was something for everyone. Our grandchildren enjoyed unlimited swimming in the beautiful pool and tried their hand @ fishing with grandpa for the first time. My daughter who is a teacher and I explored the historical Yorktown. While the guys all spent a relaxing day at the house the girls spent a day shopping at the Williamsburg outlet mall. The grocery store is a mere 10 minute drive. The kitchen was spacious with all the amenities you could ask for and the bedrooms and family living area are spacious and clean. The dining room was large enough for the 7 adults and 3 children to share all our meals together. We also enjoyed a lovely family dinner overlooking the water in Gloucester at the York Oyster Company. The Belmont Manor provided us a vacation we will cherish for a long time.
