Mathews County's culture is a bit like the Florida Keys (which we love) in that you quickly adapt to island time.

We specialize in getting people to relax, take a deep breath and enjoy nature in all its glory. Mathews County doesn't even have a stoplight but we have 90 miles of water trails great for kayaking and boating and nine coastal trails that are part of Virginia's Birding & Wildlife Trails system.

Grab a drink and head up to Crow's Nest, our rooftop deck with stunning views of the East River and kick back at our LL Bean dining table/chairs topside or stretch out in the lounge chairs. What would vacation be without swimming! Refresh yourself at our swimming pool with bar area, double hammock swing, loungers, rocking chairs, dining table & grill.

Revive yourself with a nap in the huge couples' hammock in our mint garden (great for tea or mint juleps/mojitos). Quiet time abounds as well so relax in one of our reading areas or just kick back and rest in the lounge chairs located throughout the property. Bird watchers love viewing dozens of water fowl and bird species including our resident heron, egret and osprey. Stroll around the pathways and neighborhood and enjoy our wildlife and gardens with coastal landscaping. If you want to try an adventure, take our kayaks for a paddle and our bikes for a spin. Love fishing? Bring your boat, tie up to our pier and join in catching some of the hundreds of flounder and rockfish garnered by our guests and resident expert, Capt Dave who is happy to provide local fishing intelligence.

From fishing on the Chesapeake Bay, to dipping your toes in the water while watching the birdlife from the dock, to feeling the constant breeze on the screened 10X50 porch, Catherine's Cove calms the mind, relaxes the body and soothes the spirit. With year-round water access to the Bay only minutes away, Winter Harbor has excellent crabbing and fishing (including fly fishing!), smooth and peaceful kayaking, birding, and sun bathing. In autumn and winter, the raised hearth fireplace creates a warm space to cozy up with a good book or hold long conversations with family and friends. Walking into the main floor, you are quickly touched by the sun-drenched feel of the house. With heart-of-pine floors throughout the main floor of the house, all reclaimed from a factory in Connecticut, and windows with expansive views of wetlands and water, the physical structure of the house is complimented by the crisp and clean style throughout. Topping this off, the tin roof is perfect.The open kitchen plan, designed by a local Richmond restaurant owner, makes for a welcoming space for all. A separate eating area, both inside the house and on the screened-in porch, provides ample space to enjoy each other's company over a meal. The living room has stylish but comfortable seating for a nap or a nice long chat. There are three bedrooms on the same floor, with enough privacy and space in each: One has two twin beds, another has a full bed and personal access to the bathroom shared with the great room, and the master bedroom has a queen-sized bed with it's own bathroom and front porch access. The loft space, with two twin beds, as well as a fold out queen sofa, accents the open floor plan and provides another place to lounge and relax. Catherine's Cove is located only minutes from Main Street, Matthews, where shopping and dining are available, if you want to venture 'downtown'! The house has a well appointed kitchen, so onsite dining can be even better. LOCAL ATTRACTIONS: DONK'S LIVE THEATRE is just up the road. This 1947 true piece of Americana is the kind of old movie house or theater that the late Charles Kuralt would have stopped at and done a story on for his On the Road Series. Opry singers and talent contests, are just a few examples of how you can walk back in time for a fun, country evening. NEW POINT COMFORT NATURE PRESERVE is a short 15 minute drive. It provides a unique look at life at the edge of the Chesapeake Bay. The lighthouse is the third oldest still standing on the Bay.Depending on the tide, this site combines tidal shallows, mudflats, beach, exposed pilings, and deep offshore channels, all of which offer their own assortment of numerous waterbirds, lusty displays of fiddler crabs and yellow Seaside Dragonlets, our only truly saltwater dragonfly. You may experience this beauty on the boardwalk, or launch a kayak or canoe there. Located in Mathews County at the southern end of Route 600, Virginia Historical Marker N-89. HISTORIC WILLIAMSBURG and YORKTOWN, WATER COUNTRY, AND THE WILLIAMSBURG OUTLET STORES are all a 45 minute drive..

We’ve spent over a decade designing and renovating our property Grandview to give guests impeccable access to nature, relaxation and privacy. In May 2011, we finished the construction of the luxurious “Shack” complete with king size bedroom and gourmet kitchen. From your roof top deck, enjoy expansive views of the East River. Watch the sun rise over the water with your morning coffee on your private balcony. Crave relaxation? We’ve got it! Find what suits your vacation style best – swimming in the pool, fishing or crabbing on the pier, kayaking, biking, bird watching, strolling around the coastal landscaped pathways or lounging in chairs and hammocks located throughout our three acre property. Grandview has excellent access to the Lower Chesapeake for sailors, intracoastal cruisers & fisherman with dockage for small boats & deep water anchorage for larger craft.

The second level of the Shack contains your bedroom with a king size Sleep Number bed as well as a living room area with drink fridge and a leather sofa to sink into while enjoying the large screen flat panel tv, featuring satellite tv with the professional football package and a 200+ DVD collection. Love to cook? Master Chef Karla designed the Shack’s gourmet kitchen with cooks in mind and she loves to share great recipes for locally available seafood. Step outside and pick fresh herbs from the garden. Think swings are just for kids or the outdoors? We’re big kids at heart and couldn’t resist adding a swing to the downstairs living area. Hop into the swing and soak in the view, watching the tide roll away. Looking to create your own sunset celebration? Grab a drink and head up to Crow's Nest, our rooftop deck with stunning views of the East River and kick back at our LL Bean dining table/chairs topside or stretch out in the lounge chairs. What would vacation be without swimming! Refresh yourself at our swimming pool with bar area, double hammock swing, loungers, rocking chairs, dining table & grill. Can’t get enough of the water view then try your hand at good ole fashioned crabbing with chicken legs and strings on the pier or relax in the Adirondack chairs while the crab pots do the work for you. Revive yourself with a nap in the huge couples’ hammock in our mint garden (great for tea or mint juleps/mojitos). Quiet time abounds as well so relax in one of our reading areas or just kick back and rest in the lounge chairs located throughout the property. Bird watchers love viewing dozens of water fowl and bird species including our resident heron, egret and osprey. Stroll around the pathways and neighborhood and enjoy our wildlife and gardens with coastal landscaping. If you want to try an adventure, take our kayaks for a paddle and our bikes for a spin. Love fishing?

              Mariner's Legacy-circa 1867. **No weddings allowed** You will be looking 1 1/2 mile up and 2 miles down the East River. The spectacular views will take your breath away as the river laps literally feet away from you. East River has been called 'Little Annapolis' by the 'Chesapeake Bay Magazine'. The uncongested waters provide for a cruising heaven for you to watch kayaks to yachts travel pass. If you want to experience what it is like to live on the water, you must come to Mariner's Legacy. There is nothing comparable to it in Mathews County on the rental market for maritime history, 22 acres of open space and privacy as well as wide, miles long river views and proximity to the Mobjack Bay and Chesapeake Bay, The home and property have been passed down from great grandfather, Isaac Ward, a sea captain, to present day owner and husband. The oak wood flooring, molding, chair railing, wainscoting, 10 foot columns and ceilings, doors and door handles are original to the house. The home has been lovingly and completely remodeled and open for the first time on the rental market In July 2015. The house was built by ships carpenters [ships wrights] after the Civil War for Captain Isaac Ward of Somerset County, MD. He had been a blockade runner in the Civil War and had used Williams Wharf to "drop off" goods bound for Richmond. He bought this property with his war profits from Mr. Williams' brother. Mathews County maritime history radiates throughout the house through decorative items and books describing the long and eventful history of the ancestors and the Chesapeake Bay region. The porch is a perfect place to watch all that nature has to offer; ospreys' catching the evening meal as their mates call out to them, eagles as they soar over your head, dolphins chasing schools of fish and fiddle crabs scurrying across the sand. The house is on a double peninsula that looks due north 1 1/2 miles up the East River, past Williams Wharf into Put-In Creek and southeast 2 miles down the river towards Mobjack Bay as well into Mill Creek and Raines Creek. This means you have the river in front of you and the creek behind you. You will be able to launch your boat and moor it at a dock and boat ramp owned by the owners in the adjacent Raines Creek. Mariner's Legacy is perfect for the fisherman in your group. If you bring your boat, cruising the rivers of the Mobjack Bay is a favorite activity, as well tubing or running out to New Point Lighthouse. Or if you prefer, you can anchor your boat just off shore the sandy beach and walk up to the house with your daily catch. The sandy area is perfect for launching kayaks and small sail boats. This area has a hundred foot or so gradual walk to deeper water, typical of Tidewater Virginia. The sandy river bottom has been a perfect area for generations of children to enjoy the water without fear of getting into deep water quickly. Four kayaks are provided with the house. There is a 7 acre wide expansive grassy yard overlooking the rivah and is perfect for a pick-up game of soccer, crochette, volleyball & cornhole. The children will love playing tag & chasing lighting bugs as generations of children have done before them! The fire pit is on the western side of the house so you can sit and enjoy the sun setting over the East River as you roast your marshmallows. The house is a three story classic Tidewater vernacular farm house. The theme is nautical-chic. The neutral walls are offset with fabrics in farmhouse colors (deep red, navy, khaki). The palette is echoed throughout the house-from the first floor "rivah" room and dinning room to the third floor gathering area. The ground floor has an enclosed heated porch with washer, dryer and second refrigerator. This opens into the Back Foyer, which has storage for outdoor dining ware. Laundry products, paper towels, toilet paper, paper plates and napkins are provided. Dish and dishwasher detergent as well as any clean-up products are provided. You will also find the crab steamer, with wooden mallets and crab seasoning provided as well as the sturdy brown paper to put on the picnic table for you own crab picking while watching the sunset. One of our guests said "You know it has been a good meal when you can wrap it up, throw it away and hose down your table!" The updated kitchen has new stainless steel appliances. Cooking for 12 will be no problem in the top of the line well appointed kitchen. The dinning room has a farm table with seating for 12. Plenty of extra cozy seating on 2 additional leather sofas for reading or conversation are also in this room. The 'rivah' room overlooks the expansive views of the East River, with lots of seating for watching the 55 inch flat screen HD TV, playing games or just enjoy relaxing. The full downstairs bathroom is on the west wall. The second floor has four bedrooms with queen size beds with high thread count luxury linens and reading alcoves overlooking the river and creeks. There are two full bathrooms are on the second floor. Oversized luxurious Egyptian cotton bath linens are provided to each guest. As you enter the third floor family area, there is a Pottery Barn sofa and 48 in flat screen HD TV with "take your breath away river views"! Plenty of additional seating is provided to read or lounge. On this floor are two bedrooms, with two twin beds in each room. One of the bedrooms is decorated for your favorite pirate. Family lore has been passed down that Captain Ward's brother had a parrot and a peg leg! Capt. Ward inherited the parrot, which was know to say "Captain Ike, someone's at the mill!" The western window overlooks the remnants of this tidal mill. A half bath is on this floor. The porch wraps around three sides of the house and all three sides overlook the East River. The proximity to the water provides panoramic views for your morning coffee right through evening cocktails! There are seating areas on each side of the porch beckoning you to come and sit awhile. A hammock with hooks on either side of the porch allows you to follow the ever present breeze that being on a peninsula gives you.

Revive yourself with a nap in the huge couples’ hammock in our mint garden (great for tea or mint juleps/mojitos). Quiet time abounds as well so relax in one of our reading areas or just kick back and rest in the lounge chairs located throughout the property. Bird watchers love viewing dozens of water fowl and bird species including our resident heron, egret and osprey. Stroll around the pathways and neighborhood and enjoy our wildlife and gardens with coastal landscaping. If you want to try an adventure, take our kayaks for a paddle and our bikes for a spin. Love fishing? Bring your boat, tie up to our pier and join in catching some of the hundreds of flounder and rockfish garnered by our guests and resident expert, Capt Dave who is happy to provide local fishing intelligence. If you want some sand in your toes, we are a short drive from Haven Beach, Aaron Beach and Bethel Beach in Mathews with great birding, shell gathering, strolling. If you’re looking for a day trip, we are an hour away from Colonial Williamsburg & Busch Gardens, Yorktown and horse racing at Colonial Downs. We are centrally located between Virginia Beach and Washington DC and a mere 90 minutes from Richmond. We are proud to be a Virginia Green facility!
