THE WATER VIEW - the main reason we purchased Green Acres at the Bay. The stunning views of the East River provide impeccable access to nature, relaxation and privacy at the Chesapeake Bay. New in summer 2017 this renovated farmhouse provides a vacation paradise for couples, families and of course it's dog-friendly. All the modern conveniences (wifi, 40" tvs in every bedroom and 50" in living room) and an abundance of outdoor living: deck, fire pit, relaxing chairs everywhere, hammock. Located in Mathews County, voted one of the coolest small towns in America.
Green Acres quickly works its magic on guests with its privacy, abundant nature and relaxation. The birdlife is simply amazing (Karla's dad is an ornithologist so we have a great appreciation) and on a clear night you can't believe the stars! Mathews County's culture is a bit like the Florida Keys (which we love) in that you quickly adapt to island time. You stop worrying about all your emails and to do lists and time is measured by meal time, cocktail time and nap 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. For bicyclists, the Tour de Chesapeake is held annually in Mathews offering bike routes of varying lengths.
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. We are centrally located between Virginia Beach and Washington DC and a mere 90 minutes from Richmond.
