  • 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!"

  • 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."

  • Beautiful haven

    "The Scanlons have created a beautiful haven in Mathews County, VA. Our first impression was that this was the most immaculate vacation rental we have ever stayed in! The Fishhouse has everything a family could need for a wonderful vacation. We fished, crabbed, swam, kayaked, road bicycles, watched movies, & slept like babies. We took day trips to OBX, Williamsburg, Yorktown, & Busch Gardens. Time in Mathews has a way of melting the weariness if the world away!"

  • Perfect!

    "My best friend and I spent a long weekend at the Piankatank cottage and couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting. The pictures do not do it justice. We only had three days and had made plans to explore but were so in love with the setting that, with the exception of a side trip to a beautiful winery and a movie under the stars in Urbanna, we decided to just stay and relax. The view was amazing and due to the cooler weather we were able to open the doors and windows to the porch so we could hear the river sounds and smell the marsh. We had the entire place to ourselves.There are so many things to see and do and nothing is very far away at all (it only looks like it on a a map). The Deltaville Market has just about everything you need and it's practically around the corner. J&W Seafood has wonderful fish and crabmeat. The kitchenette is small but we found it easy to prepare meals in. Everything is high end and well-cared for. The cottage was very clean. I could go on and on. We can't wait to go back and we definitely hope we can stay longer!"
