  • 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!!"

  • The Crab Shack is a PRECIOUS GEM!

    "This cottage is a true gem in every way. We had the best of times that we pictured ourselves living there! The furniture is amazing! Done with so much taste, I couldn’t help but notice how everything blended together and matched as if I was in a furniture showroom! We loved the leather sofa and chairs, how the TV had a mount so you could move it to wherever you can see best. We could even watch TV from bed! The telescope… we were literally keeping an eye on our rod tips from the inside of the cottage!! The decoration was mind blowing: the clamshell wall in the family room and the big glass bowl with hundreds of wine bottle corks! The pictures of crab fishermen and the big poster for Jimmy and Sook artistically constructed with the little shiny mosaic pieces! We are in love with this cottage and every little corner in it. While you’re there look up at the fans, even the fans match the décor!! You can see the water from every corner of this cottage! Even from the kitchen!! And the water is so close, we slept with the shutters up to see the sparkling water just a few feet from our bed till we fell asleep. We’d wake up to the same view in the morning! Even though the bed is super comfortable, we minimized our sleep to 6 hours a night because we couldn’t help but maximize our fun time! We’re addicted to fishing, so we were like kids in a candy store, stepping outside and fishing within seconds! Andy even has 2 rod holders set on the dock and there is a water tap too. We caught a drum fish, a small striper, several white perch on spinners, over a dozen crabs and the highlight of our trip was the huge stingray we caught on our first night there! She was massive, the two of us could barely lift the net to pull her out of the water and the fight was amazing! She took in so much line, we had no idea what we were getting. It was dark and we shined a light at the water when we had finally got her close to the dock and there she was whipping her tail!!! Andy is a darling, he saved no effort to perfect our stay! He was always one phone call away whenever we needed to ask him something and he was genuinely interested in making sure that we were happy. We’ll definitely be back and recommend the Crab Shack to anyone who wants to experience a waterfront cottage that’s truly special in every way!"

  • Memorable Family Gathering!

    "We are from Southern California in Dana Point. We were coming to Virginia for our son's United States Coast Guard graduation at Yorktown and wanted a place where our 4 generations of family members could come together for a week long gathering. I communicated with Danette prior to booking and based on that I decided this would be a great place for our family. We were greeted with the most genuine hospitality. Both Rick and Danette went above and beyond in their recommendations of local sights and making sure we were comfortable at the house. We were celebrating an early Christmas together and the house was decorated with the most beautiful tree and lights. It was truly a magical and memorable week that our family will cherish for years. We had so many amazing days from playing corn hole around the fire pit, to bike riding the country roads, to kayaking around the lake and much more. The house is steeped in history and we loved hearing the family stories from both Rick and Danette. This house and surrounding area are everything that's described and so much more!"
