Gwynn's Island Cottage is waterfront cottage with its own private beach located in Mathews County, VA.. The Cottage offers breathtaking, panoramic views of Hills Bay and the Chesapeake Bay beyond. Modest but comfortably furnished, the Cottage sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms, one with a queen and one with 2 twins. The northwest orientation provides spectacular sunset views over the water from the house, deck, yard, or beach. From the master bedroom, guests can see out to the Chesapeake Bay.
A fully equipped kitchen, an updated bath, and a washer and dryer are available for guest use. From the great room and dining area guests can enjoy panoramic views of the water.
Just a few steps down from the yard is a small but private sand beach where guests can swim, fish, crab, kayak, float on a raft, lounge or enjoy an adult beverage. Hills Bay is a clean, shallow, sandy-bottomed body of water, perfect for children and explorers alike. After a quick rinse in the outdoor shower after a day on the beach, guests can use the charcoal grill for cooking up the day’s catch or fresh seafood from the nearby market. Your day is capped off with a sunset over the water.
The Cottage has Dish TV and wifi. In the Shed, 3 bikes are available to explore Gwynn's Island, a natural sanctuary with much history. Guests also can use the single and double kayaks, stand up paddleboard, rafts, crabpots, crab net, beach and camp chairs and table, grill utensils and charcoal, croquet set, and pup tent and hammock.
Smoking is not.
