  • Best Vacation Ever!

    "Our family of 12 had a wonderful time at Grand View! We enjoyed the spacious house and room to spread out for all--loved the 2 living room areas with flat screen TVs and the FABULOUS master suites on the first floor both with big flat screen TVs. The kitchen was very spacious with a great view of the water and dock. We hung out on the big back porch in late into the evenings and played corn hole on the back lawn overlooking the water. The kids (ages 11-21) loved loved the pool and spent day and night there--lots of pool toys already there. We had older teens who enjoyed the tennis court too! We docked our boat and the guys went fishing out in the Bay everyday and everyone fished and crabbed from the pier too. We had a fish fry one night with all the fish and crabs! The grounds were beautifully maintained! The caretaker was wonderful and even brought us fresh eggs.We went to nearby Gloucester and Mathews for our shopping needs and checked out some of the small shops downtown and had dinner at Willoughby's on the Rappahannock River in White Stone one night ---outstanding seafood and service! This was a peaceful quiet vacation and the kids never wanted to leave the property! I Highly Recommend Grand View to all who want to enjoy spending time with family and friends! Thank You Cathy Leitz (owner) for everything you did to make our vacation the BEST EVER!!! We are already making plans to return next year!"

  • Our Annual Fall Gathering

    "Three couples who are longtime friends made a trip to the lovely waterfront house on the North River. Unfortunately, our fourth couple was unable to make it this year at the last minute. The accommodations were just perfect for our group. The things to see in the area are so numerous that we will have to do this again to see more. So, the house had a fabulous kitchen which was so well stocked and easy to work in. We actually did quite a bit of cooking there. The beds were so nice and comfy and each couple had plenty of space and great views of the river. A very peaceful area and a nice time of the year to be in that area. We did the Williamsburg visit, the Jamestown visit, and a boat tour of the Hampton Roads Harbor, which was almost my favorite thing to do. We were leaving just as Matthew the hurricane was heading up the coast but fortunately it did not get that far and I doubt that the property was affected at all. We would definitely return to this great, beautifully decorated home."

  • 2nd Time Around

    "This was our second visit to this marvelous property. And it was every bit as good as our first visit. Wanting to soak in the sun, sand, and surf - but without the crowds and commercialization, we stumbled upon this gem. The house and charming guest house were perfect for our group. The scenery is absolutely awesome. We played on the beach, swam, kayaked, hiked and biked. The porch was perfect for early morning coffee while watching a spectacular sunrise or having an evening cocktail while grilling out. The fire pit was a big hit again for everyone. We'll be booking our third trip soon!"

  • Incredible! Waterfront home away from home.

    "I’m pretty sure our leaving is a temporary thing. We love the crab shack, a beautiful ‘home away from home’ for any of us lucky enough to find it. It far exceeded any expectations. Olive oil for cooking? Yes. Great knives and pans? Yes. Comfy bathrobes? Yes. In fact it’s so perfect it's made us rethinking living in Matthews. Perhaps Williamsburg will be a better all-around fit and the Crab Shack will become our new waterfront home. Stay tuned. We have such wonderful memories of our stay there… one evening as I was cooking dinner my husband asked me to come out into the darkened garden. It was alight with fireflies.  So nice to have the family dogs nearby. Gentle and sweet. Helped as we were missing our cat. Karla and Dave have thought of everything to make you immediately comfortable and at ease. They are amazing hosts. We really love this place."
