  • Fantastic boat

    "Very well appointed and maintained dead rise. If beautiful old boats are your thing don't miss this one."

  • Holly House--great place for families to feel at home

    "My siblings and I just spent a week at Holly House--it was lovely. It was top-of-the-line clean and everything was easy to find and in working order. The house is quaint--in the best of ways--but somehow it also manages to be roomy. There are several areas that invite being together, and there is also plenty of room be alone, when needed. We especially enjoyed eating at the table in the back yard.Very, very comfortable. We could not have felt more at home. Mike and Connie were extremely communicative hosts. When we did have needs, as people do who stay somewhere for a week, they answered and were 100% helpful right away. And yes, the freshly baked cookies were waiting for us---such a nice and welcoming touch. We loved Beaverdam Park's hiking trails and boat rentals. While we were visiting, the produce and fresh fish market on Main St was still running--I don't know if they only operate seasonally--and that is the place to get local, fresh food! The vegetarians among us were happy to find Sweet Tooth Cafe on Main St--not just sweets! Plenty of other good restaurants are an easy walk away from the house. The proximity to town is another reason it was such a great place to stay. I highly recommend Holly House."

  • Beautiful serene setting and lovely large home and property

    "It was after dark when we arrived, and we awoke to a gorgeous view of the bay, and a lovely back yard with squirrels and huge mature trees. Obviously a property with a lot of history, the common rooms were well appointed and comfortable. The kitchen was amazingly well stocked with every pot and utensil imaginable. The bedrooms upstairs were older, for sure, but clean and with very comfortable bedding. We had 3 adult couples, and the configuration was 1 BR downstairs and 2 baths (opposite of the bedrooms) so that was awkward for our group, but we knew that going in. We could tell this would be a stunning place in the summer with the pool and dock, etc. Nice! The little town of Mathews had a cute country restaurant and we happened in during live music night. The owners were responsive and the property was well maintained. Yes, we'd recommend it."

  • This house has everything!

    "We felt like we were staying in a private luxury resort with all the amenities. The house, property and owners were awesome. It was the perfect vacation for our family with 3 teenage boys. There was so much to do here and Paula and Larry thought of EVERYTHING to make your stay enjoyable. They were gracious, hospitable and thoughtful hosts, available when you needed them but making sure your privacy was respected. The boys enjoyed kayaking and fishing every morning while we watched and drank our coffee on the covered deck. There was so much to do from playing basketball, corn hole, horse shoes, frisbee, badminton, riding bikes, crabbing, watching dolphins, seeing the space station fly over and more! We saw an amazing heat lighting storm which lasted over an hour. It was better than fireworks! We loved the location. It was about a 50 minute ride to Busch Gardens/Water Country/Williamsburg which was a must do with 3 teenagers. We also enjoyed the Courthouse Restaurant for breakfast and Olivia's for dinner. The general store/post office nearby is a piece of living history. I can't say enough wonderful things about this vacation. This place is truly a treasure!!"
