Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Catherine;



I , wanted to take a few minutes to say Thanks for your wonderful hospitality. For providing everything that might be needed, to have a delightful and memorable vacation on Chesapeake Bay. Your home is beautiful, with wonderful views. Fantastic accommodation with room for 20 people. Kids and (adults) loved the crabbing from the dock and the kayaking. A quick 45 minute ride to Busch Gardens topped off the week.



I would without reservation recommend TALL PINES BY THE BAY AS A FIVE STAR vacation rental!



Thanks Again for everything

The best home rental I've ever experienced

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many homes for family retreats and this is by far the best I have experienced. Catherine and her family have provided so many resources such as bicycles, kayaks, games, plenty of dishes and silverware, lots of beds and bathrooms, appliances, spices, coffee, books, binoculars to watch to bufflehead ducks, a pier, a beach, and lots of room inside and outside. We are hoping to stay there again next year. I suggest taking photos with your smart phones of the supplies and dishes in the kitchen so you can replace any of those you use up. I had 5 people bring food, so it was hard to tell whose was whose. I also sometimes forgot exactly which cabinet which pot or dish belonged in.

A Perfect Gathering Spot for All!

  • 5 of 5

Tall Pines by the Bay is an exceptional property, perfect for creating lasting memories. Just over an hour drive east of the Richmond Airport and down narrow tree lined lanes, Tall Pines is nestled located along a beautiful tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. The home captivates guests with an expansive layout, capable of accommodating very large and diverse groups while still offering private spaces to get away from the action.

The home is in spotless condition, beautifully decorated and fully appointed to handle every imaginable need. While too long to detail here, a complete list of kitchen items, pantry stock, linens, indoor entertainment and outdoor recreation items is available from the owner. There is an amazing variety available and everything is of a quality you would find in your own home. For those interested in exploring the area, there is a massive collection of maps, promotional brochures, weekly publications and menus available.

Offering beautiful and often fog shrouded sunrises and the most stunning sunsets over the water, the absence of ambient light gives guests of Tall Pines an amazing star saturated night sky to enjoy around the fire pit with your favorite beverage following an evening barbeque. Bring your smart phone or tablet star gazing app! While our visit was over Christmas, water activities (boating, swimming, fishing and crabbing) would clearly be a warm weather highlight. The delightful owner resides nearby and was very responsive if needs arose or just for consultation. Our experience at Tall Pines by the Bay was exceptional and we unconditionally recommend it.

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

Tall Pines by the Bay is a lovely, spacious, beautifully appointed home! We were four families traveling together - 18 people in total - and there was plenty of space for everyone. There are plenty of things to keep one busy, but also great spaces for relaxing. The children had a wonderful time playing in the yard, kayaking, roasting marshmallows, etc. We used Tall Pines as a base from which to explore The Historic Triangle, and wish we had planned for more time at the house! The house was immaculate and the manager was very helpful and accommodating. I would recommend this house to everyone!

Graves

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation in this beautiful home! The house was spotlessly clean and perfectly equipped! There was plenty of space for sleeping and hanging out. The sandy beach was great for the young grandchildren and the water and swimming were super. We loved the fire pit in the evenings and the porch for morning coffee. Katherine was easily available if needed, but always respectful of our space and time together. It was a perfect vacation!

Family time

This was truly a home away from home. They have everything you need and more. We biked, kayaked, swam, crabbed, fished and just relaxed. We will hope they will have us again! Best time ever!

Absolutely wonderful vacation home!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a home away from home - THIS is the place for you and your family/friends! The owners have thought of absolutely everything that you might need to enjoy your stay, including spices and a thoroughly equipped kitchen to prepare meals. Catherine goes out of her way to make your stay perfect - welcomes you like family/friends. We celebrated our granddaughter's graduation from W&M during our stay, and she provided oblong folding tables for the party, coolers, etc. It is a peaceful and private getaway location, with plenty of fun things to do on site (bikes, helmets, kayaks, fire pit for s'mores, ping pong, fishing and crabbing from the dock (no license required), but also only 12 minutes away from the quaint town of Mathews, with several great places to dine - our favorite being Southwind Cafe. We also enjoyed a wonderful and tasty dinner only minutes from the house at Sandpiper Reef. Be sure to book a sunset cruise tour of East River with Capt. Trey of Deadrise Charters - only six passengers at a time - very reasonable and informative. Our only regret is that our stay was only for seven nights!!! Wish we could have given this ten stars! Don't hesitate - book your stay, today!!!
