  • Lovely, relaxing escape

    "The home in Mathews, VA is a lovely place to just kick back and relax. There are water views from practically every window. The front porch, with its swing and table with chairs was a great place to sit with a book and a drink and just enjoy the day. We all had a blast down on the dock using the provided crab traps. Such fun! We also took the kayaks out and had a blast on the water. Great way to exercise and feel relaxed at the same time. Finally, the pool... it was a terrific way for all of us to beat the heat and again, simply relax. This is a great away from it all type of location. If you don't want to deal with hustle and bustle or tourist traps this is certainly the place. The home itself is large, comfortable, clean and beautifully appointed. Plenty of towels, washer/dryer, fully loaded kitchen... everything you'd need is at your disposal. We had a really good time here and would recommend it. One word of advice though... be wary of a local bug... chiggers... They are outside in the grass and can really give a nasty bite which is rather itchy. We all found out the hard way. Just mind where you sit and perhaps use bug spray. This is not in any way a negative against the house... we were informed by a local pharmacist that these bugs are everywhere down here. But, that was the only downside to our whole trip. A wonderful time was had by all in this great home."

  • Simply put, it is the best!

    "Beautiful sunsets, warm and sunny days and the loveliest cottage on a river ever. Fishing, crabbing, swimming, or whatever is your fancy, is there for your enjoyment. The cottage has everything and more one needs to make your vacation worry free. The owners are on-sight and there to help if needed and make great recommendations for things to do and places to eat. We will and do go back for the past five years!"

  • Extremely Relaxaing environment!!

    "This was our first time staying at the Blue Heron House, but it won't be our last. My husband was looking for a relaxing getaway for his 42nd birthday and the location didn't disappoint. We've stayed at other properties on VRBO in the past and this home is definitely in our top 3. The house is decorated beautifully with beach motif all through out, no detail was spared. The views were beautiful!! We took 3 other couples along with us and the house accommodated us all comfortably. It was nice to have 3 cooked meals a day around the table, hang out by the pool, sit out on the deck to read and tan. This home is just what we needed to shut our minds down from work for a few days. The towels and linens were of great quality. Susan, the owner was very pleasant, laid back and responsive to our questions, and she made the check in and check out process really easy, which I appreciated as I only had about 3 weeks to pull together the celebratory weekend. All of our friends were impressed, and was so glad that it was only an hour drive away and that we didn't have to catch a flight back after such a relaxing weekend. They all want us to make this a yearly trip. I must mention we also rented the boat for a day- Well worth it!! The view of all the homes along the bay were astonishing, and then to come back and have crabs lined up in the crab pots to cook, was just icing on the cake!! In case you can't tell, we had a great time, in only 3 days!! Highly recommend to anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of life!!"

  • Romantic Solitude

    "My husband and I were able to escape on our honeymoon for only a couple of days, but we both absolutely loved this waterfront paradise. The views are stunning, the house is nicely decorated, extremely comfortable. The kitchen setting is beautiful and overlooks the water. The jacuzzi tub outside is positioned just right to give you privacy and still an amazing view of the water. Every detail was just right, even the fully stocked cupboards and the gas fireplace in the living room. I cannot wait to return!"
