About Bill Metzger

Bill Metzger is originally from Oklahoma, but has lived in Virginia for the past 35 years. Now semi-retired I love living on the Chesapeake Bay and near the small but charming town of Mathews.

Why Bill Metzger chose Mathews

The house has expansive views from every room in the house. At least 110 years old this house has weathered many storms and hurricanes. It was a working farm. In this area most farmers also were watermen with fishing boats.

The house has been modernized to today's high standards yet continues to maintain it's coastal farm house charm. It has everything a coastal property should have. A quiet slide into the cove for kayaks, boat loading ramp and boathouse that can accommodate two 36' craft.

What makes this house unique

The first time I saw this property, it was love at first sight. Nothing beats the expansive views and when the sun is at a certain angle the water definitely looks blue -- thus, Blue Water Haven.

It is a haven from all the worries of the world. Although if you want to stay in touch with the world we have WiFi and TV's in every room.

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of five had a wonderful time at Blue Water Haven. Everything is provided for an enjoyable stay and the property is really well maintained and beautifully presented. We stayed for 2 weeks so had plenty of time to enjoy all the home and area has to offer. We made use of the kayaks, canoes and bikes and hired a boat for part of our stay. The local town of Mathews has some lovely restaurants and a couple of grocery stores. It i an easy 10 minute cycle away. We also visited the historic triangle and Busch Gardens, all approximately 1 hour away by car. We have stayed at several rental properties in the U.S. and throughout Europe and this was one of the best we have stayed at, in the most wonderful setting.

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 out of 5
We could not have had a more perfect vacation than we had at Blue Water Haven! Accommodating three generations (to include three children, ages 6, 9, and 11) can be difficult, but this large, beautiful house was ideal for us all. There was space for privacy and more than enough space for shared experiences. We biked, kayaked, crabbed, fished, roasted marshmallows around the campfire, enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the back porch, and swam in the pool morning, noon, and evening. We found everything at the house that we needed for a great time. We even found time for trips to Bush Gardens and Jamestown. Bill was quick to respond to any questions that I had prior to our arrival, gave us all the information we needed to find and enjoy the house and area, and he even gave us perfect weather for a vacation. Since we all had so much fun together at Blue Water Haven, I asked my family if they would like to vacation together again somewhere different. My grandson echoed everyone's thoughts when he said, "Why should we go somewhere else; this house has everything!"

Perfect for family vacation

  • 5 out of 5
I just returned from spending a week at this beautifully maintained property with my toddlers and my extended family including teenagers and the grandmother of all of these kids. Our family ranging in age from 2 1/2 to 64 all enjoyed the home and the amenities. I truly can't think of anything we needed to bring other than our clothes and food. Even getting food was no big deal as the local grocery store was just a few minutes away. The owners have thought of everything. So it was as easy of a vacation as I could have imagined. The setting is gorgeous and the home is spectacular. There was plenty to do right there at "home" while attractions like Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg were within an hour's drive. We had an amazing vacation and hope to visit this home again in the future.

Top notch in every way!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife & I just finished a week long "reunion vacation" at Blue Haven with 3 other couples who've been friends for over 30 years. Website pictures here are good but really don't do it justice. As other reviewers have mentioned, everything has been thought of. Views are spectacular and house is very comfortable. Privacy is easily gained with so many well-furnished bedrooms. Plenty of wildlife to be seen. A large osprey nest is in one of the large trees at the bay-side edge of the property. While boating close to the house, we saw a dolphin. Very very responsive owner. We mentioned our plans to use the grille pretty extensively through the week. The next morning, a brand new grille had been purchased to replace the "old one." Very easy to catch Chesapeake Blue Crabs. Traps for doing so are provided in the large boathouse. And, there's a propane fueled crab pot for cooking the catch. Everything has been well-cared for and is in top condition. Swimming pool too is crystal clear & a very comfortable temperature. We used the provided kayaks (including PFD's & paddles) and the bikes. Again, all are well maintained. By now it's evident that we thoroughly enjoyed the week and found Blue Haven to be an outstanding experience - no exaggeration.

Breathtaking and Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I just returned from a 5 night trip to Blue Water Haven. We had never been to the quaint area of Mathews, but stumbled upon Bill's listing when looking for homes near Williamsburg. The home impressed us as soon as we turned onto the long, tree-lined driveway. And once the home came into view, it took our breath away. The home is situated on a large plot of land which views of the Chesapeake from every angle. My three young kids (7, 7, and 5) immediately jumped out of the car and began exploring. Inside we found that Bill's descriptions and photos didn't do the home justice. Very cozy and chic and we immediately felt right at home. It was also much appreciated that we didn't have to pack and provide our own linens and towels. Everything with the exception of our meals was taken care of - including shampoo/conditioner, cotton swabs and q-tips, lotion, bug spray - you name it. Bill was there to greet us and show us around the home and property which includes a gorgeous pool (too chilly for us to take advantage of), shed filled with bicycles ranging in sizes and a boat house with crab traps, a canoe and kayaks. We also met the property cat, whom my kids enjoyed feeding each day. As far as bedrooms, the layout was perfect. My parents took over the downstairs suite and my husband, the kids and I took the upstairs bedrooms. We spent a lot of time relaxing at the house, taking day trips into Mathews and Gwynn's Island and enjoyed meals at Richardson's, the Seabreeze and The White Dog Bistro. We also enjoyed our trip to The Poddery, where we purchased some great pieces of pottery to bring home. Williamsburg and Jamestown were a short hour trip and it was very nice to be able to return "home" each day. Thank you so much, Bill. We had a great time, would highly recommend to our friends and family and will definitely be back.
