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

Best. Vacation. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 generations (6 adults and 5 children) spent the past week at Tall Pines...a lovely spacious property and beautiful setting. First off, my husband and I are neat freaks, and found this house to be immaculate. You cannot find a more responsible or attentive owner than Catherine. Her personal touches did not go unnoticed. Not only is the house equipped with kayaks, bikes, crab pots, games, etc. for outdoor activities, you will find a fully stocked kitchen/pantry...just like at home, only someone else had done the shopping!

We had 3 day trips planned, but none of them happened as everyone preferred crabbing from the dock, kayaking, swimming, or just relaxing on the porch playing games and generally hanging out together. Isn't that what summer vacations are all about? And ending our days with s'mores by the fire pit gazing up at the stars...doesn't get much better than that.

Even our grandchildren appreciated how special this place is. Their comments ranged from: "Can we stay longer?...Can we buy this house?...When can we come back?...to This is the coolest house ever!" Tall Pines offered something for everyone and helped our family create memories that will last a lifetime.

Perfect Home for Our Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Last week at this time, I was sitting on the front porch watching our nieces (ages 7-12) and parents kayaking on Queens Creek. This is at least our 15th home rental and the most beautiful and well equipped home. Catherine has supplied this home with everything you could possibly need. There were 15 of us, 11 adults and 4 children. A day was spent at Busch Gardens, another at the Water Park, and another at Yorktown. Before sunset, all kayaks were being used and someone else was building a fire in the fire pit where we all relaxed and shared the happenings of the day. Because the home was so well supplied, we sat down to two large family meals. It was just like Thanksgiving. Oh, one of the best parts was watching the girls catch crabs and then cooking them over the fire pit. I could go on and on, but I think you need to experience the greatness of this rental yourself. You won't be disappointed.

Great place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I together with our children and 10 grandchildren (18 total) celebrated our 50th anniversary at Tall Pines. We couldn't have found a better place because there was something for everyone - fishing, crabbing, water skiing, tubing and just plain enjoying the amazing house. Evening sunsets over Queens

Creek were enjoyed from the dock, fire pit, porch, and the house! The house is large, beautifully furnished and kept squeaky clean. The pantry, cabinets, linen closets etc. were fully stocked with everything we needed and more. Bathrooms and TVs are everywhere. Catherine is a gracious and friendly landlady and

did everything she could to make our stay enjoyable. We brought our boat and enjoyed short cruises to Piankatank Sound, Gwinn's Island, the Rappahannock River and the Chesapeake Bay. This was surely a five star vacation experience for us and I hope we can do it again sometime.

Great Time in Virginia

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home - beautiful property with so many amenities. Love the kayaks, fire pit for s'mores, outdoor grill deck and screened in patio. Our family didn't want t leave. This was ideal for our family's gathering. Thanks for providing such a well stocked home.

The owner was always available and happy to assist, if needed. We will be definitely recommending to others. The family loved Mathews, Yorktown and surrounding area, but mostly loved spending time at the property.

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!!
