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

What a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We took our family group of 19 to Tall Pines by the Bay and it is the best family vacation home we have stayed in. There is plenty of room for all of us to spread out. We enjoyed the kayaks, swimming in the bay, the fire ring (and smores) and the bikes. The house is well maintained and very clean. This is the best-stocked house and pantry we have ever seen. Catherine has thought of everything you need to take the drudgery of going to the store for necessities. We only shopped for major food items, Food Lion is in Mathews. While we were here we visited Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown. The house is conveniently located off the beaten path and within easy driving distance of all the attractions. If you have a large group this is the place to stay. You will not want to leave.

Well-Kept, Clean, and Well-Stocked

  • 5 of 5

The owners of the property really go out of their way to make sure that the stay is excellent. There were plenty of linens, towels, and beach towels-- all high quality. The pantry was stocked with basic items and all sorts of paper products. The owners even thought to get smore supplies for our children. There was plenty of charcoal and wood for the fire pit. The kayaks were a real hit with our toddlers.

Over the last 14 years, I have rented numerous properties in Nags Head, Long Beach Island, and the Finger Lakes. This property was by far the cleanest and best stocked. We cannot say enough about how friendly Catherine and her father Jack are. We will definitely be staying again. You made our stay a wonderful experience. Thank you!!

Great experience / great value

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends does this on a yearly bases for a variety of special occasions at different rentals and this house has been by far our best experience. The management team was super friendly and quick to respond to any questions. The house is fully stocked with just about everything you need all the way down to 10 different salad dressings. We ended up bringing way more supplies then we needed which was a refreshing change from previous experiences. Overall this is an amazing deal and we almost overlooked it because of the price but its completely worth it. There is a strong interest amongst the group to return to this house and we will be back!!!

Lovely house for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (9 adults and 9 kids) stayed here over the New Years Eve weekend for a 4 day trip. Catherine was lovely and answered many questions ahead of time that I had when planning for such a large family get away. Our family was coming in from all over so there was lots of coordinating to do! Catherine made that easy! The pantry was fully stocked with more items than you could expect! Our rooms were comfortable and beds all had high quality linens on them! The house was very clean and cozy but with plenty of room for 18 people to be and not be on top of one another!

Perfect retreat for a Girls Weekend to relax, refresh and renew

  • 5 of 5

This house is AMAZING! I planned a long weekend for a group of my girlfriends (12 of us). We wanted a place to get away from work, kids, husbands, and the craziness of life and just relax and have lots of laughter. THIS IS THE PLACE. The house is gorgeous, decorated tastefully and beautifully. The home is built with the best of everything, beautiful hardwood floors throughout, wide staircases, all bathrooms have slate floors and granite vanities and showers, and quality appliances. All seven of the bathrooms are roomy with large showers – and fully stocked. Bedrooms are large. Bath towels and bed linens are so soft and plush. The kitchen is gorgeous and stocked with everything you need for a week away from home. There were twelve of us, but we weren’t on top of each other. The house is large with many sitting rooms to get away and read a book or watch TV. The screened porch on the back of the house is a perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying the view. The layout of the house is perfect for large groups with one set of bedrooms on one side and another set of bedrooms on the other side of the house. Our hostess Catherine is so pleasant, extremely helpful and made sure we had everything we needed for a great weekend. The property is stunning with mature trees, nice landscaping and the home sits right on the bank of Queen Creek. We enjoyed our day sitting in our lawn chairs on the beach of the creek soaking up the sun on the beautiful November day. A few of us ventured out in the kayaks. We sat on the pier and enjoyed the view, then we spent the evening relaxing and enjoying good conversation around the fire pit. Urbanna VA is only 20 minutes away so we went into town to the Oyster Festival and on the way back we stopped at Cobbs Creek diner. The food was fantastic and I highly recommend this quaint little place. The reservation process from booking, to check-in to check-out was so easy and effortless. Catherine is extremely organized and instructions for everything were simple. We will definitely be back!

Perfect location for a Girls Weekend away to Relax, Refresh and Recharge!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I (12 of us) stayed at Tall Pines by the Bay for a long weekend in November for a girls get-a-way weekend. We had the best time. The house is simply perfect. It is so beautifully and tastefully decorated, clean, organize and exactly as it is described in the overview. The kitchen pantry and bathrooms are stocked with everything you need! Catherine was the most helpful and pleasant hostess making sure everything was perfect for our weekend. The towels and bed linens were so plush and soft. The home is immaculate, beautiful granite and slate bathrooms, hardwood floors through the home and the finest kitchen appliances and utensils. The property is stunning...gorgeous landscaping, mature tress and the house sits right on the bank of Queens Creek. We enjoyed our time outside on the pier and with on lawn chairs on the bank of the creek soaking up the sun on a beautiful November day, then enjoyed the fire pit in the evenings. The house in only 20 minutes from Urbanna so we ventured into town for the annual Oyster Festival. It was an easy drive to and from the festival. On the way back we stopped at Cobbs Creek Diner for a bite to eat and the food was delicious. I highly recommend it! The booking process and the check-in and check-out processes were easy and effortless. Catherine is very organized, helpful and a text or phone call away if you need anything at all. She is very responsive. We will definitely be back next year for the Oyster Festival weekend in November.
