About the Property
Spacious layout, many activities available or just relax.
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 use). 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 hall leads to three comfortable size bedrooms. 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.
Easy day trips can be made to Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown, and other historic sites. Charter fishing trips and boat/kayak rentals are available throughout the County. 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!
Mathew Courthouse Village is a quaint town with several restaurants, shopping, grocery store, gourmet pizza parlor, antique stores, ice cream parlor and small boutique shops. Be sure to stop in the Visitor’s Center at Old Sibley’s Store and pick up a copy of the Blueway Water Trails or find it on-line. Mathews has 2 public beaches – Haven Beach and Bethel Beach Preserve. More information can be found at Mathews County info site or google them. Call before renting we are glad to talk about the house and area in detail! Cheers!

About the owner: We found this house in Mathews on a Saturday when we decided to look for waterfront property on the prior Wednesday, it was that easy! When we drove through downtown Mathews, even before seeing the house, we knew Mathews was the place for our future getaways. And then it took us about 6 years to rehab the house to it's current state. Mathews is a special place for those looking for relaxation, peace and to get away form it all to recharge.
Why the Owner Chose Port Haywood, VA, USA:
Call with any questions before renting. We are happy to talk with you about the house and the Mathews area! This is our third season (2017) and we have been joyfully overwhelmed by the interest!
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
We have no visible "next door neighbors", (although the neighbors are great). To one side of the property is a Nature Conservancy coastal area, approximately 100 acres. The picture here is just past the house making the 15 minute walk to one of the "walkable" overlooks facing Mobjack Bay. You can see the Chesapeake Bay too. From the screen back porch "room" 28x16 you can see the Wolf trap lighthouse at night and sometimes during the day. There is much wildlife and on the ground and flying above to watch while on the porch and property!
