Authentic Mathews County Fisherman’s Farmhouse located in New Point, VA. This renovated 3 bedroom farmhouse is waterfront on Dyer Creek which opens on to the Chesapeake Bay. Situated on 6 acres next to the Nature Conservancy Preserve makes this rental a nature lover’s paradise. “Bayside at Bavon” is framed between twin mature Magnolia trees. The sweeping front porch has a porch swing and chairs, which make it an ideal spot to drink morning coffee or meet for a cocktail. The wrap-a-round porch leads to a screened back porch ideal for lounging under ceiling fans, grilling today’s catch of the day or watching the boats come in from a day out on the bay. Whether you decide to cook in the well equipped kitchen with rustic beams or eat on the screen porch, the full lite French door makes it easy to entertain guests in either location.
The middle parlor, now a comfortable living room with leather sofas, Heriz rug, Adirondack twig rocking chair and a walnut dry sink is an easy to use room whether you want to read a book or watch a movie. (Flat screen TV only for DVD & AmazonFireStick, no cable). The downstairs full size bath has been finished with nautical charts and an old painted chest with stripped top that has been converted into a charming sink. The shower is extra hot to wash off the day’s excursions or use the deck outdoor shower overlooking the water. The middle upper hall leads to three comfortable size bedrooms and a new full bath with a small washer dryer. Guests must bring their own linens, bath and bed. Bed comforters and pillows provided. The front bedroom features 5 windows with water views and a double size comfortable oak bed. The painted floor hallway leads to the two other bedrooms each equipped with new windows, double beds and a pair of bunk beds ideal for children. Guests provide all linens and bath towels.
“Bayside at Bavon” is an ideal weekend or week retreat for kayak lovers, bird watchers, artists who are looking to capture a photographic image, or a cozy family get-a-away. The rustic charm will put you in touch with nature and wash any stress away. Enjoy an easy 15 minute walk to the overlook which provides easy kayak & canoe launch. A short boat ride leads you to a large white sandy beach overlooking Thomas Jefferson’s New Point Comfort Lighthouse. Although the lighthouse is not open to the public, it gives explorers a historic destination point and you can kayak out to it, if ambitious, (about a 1/4 mile off the beach).

Marinas and public boat ramps are nearby. Busch Gardens and Water Country U.S.A. are about an hour away – but why leave…Mathews is the best kept secret on the Bay!
