Beautiful, peaceful vacation - we loved the house and the location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Beachhouse. The house was clean and cozy and the beach is beautiful and fantastic for swimming and evening walks. We really enjoyed our stay and had a wonderful "old fashioned" vacation that the whole family cherished and enjoyed. I would highly recommend it!

Quiet, cozy, and convenient to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cute farmhouse at the beach! The house was very quiet and comfortable. The beach was a very quick walk across the street, and the designated beach area was perfect! The sand was soft and the waves were gentle... Perfect for kids and relaxing! The house had an outdoor shower, which was great for removing sand before entering the house. The inside was spacious and had everything we needed. The top deck and front porch also offered great areas for enjoying the beach atmosphere. We had such a nice stay!

We tend to be repeat offenders, if we like a vacation house; and we love this one. This year we were lucky enough to stay l5 days in this vacation rental. Love the area. Peaceful without the worry of large crowds. The water is great, gentle surf, which allows for viewing aquatic life. Close enough for day trips, but we never make it out of Mathews. Great shops in town. Richardson's restaurant in town is a must!! Molly and Rick are wonderful to work with, and we love the house. We had NO mosquito problems, after yard was sprayed. The walk is less than 2 minutes to the beach. Walking toward the lighthouse and through the preserve is something you don't want to miss. Can't say enough concerning this updated beach rental. The outside shower is such an asset. Try this once, and you will be sold!

Beautiful home on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home. Very nicely updated. Molly was very knowledgeable about the area and always gets back to you with any question you may have in a very short time. The closest town with restaurants and grocery stores is about 15 minutes away but i enjoyed being in a quiet area. The house has plenty of room for a big family or a vacation with grandparents. We had 4 adults and 2 kids and still had plenty of room. We all enjoyed having WiFi thru out the house. The deck was nice to eat dinner on at night and it was great having access to a gas BBQ grill.

Relaxing Vacation on the Chesapeake Bay

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four recently enjoyed a four night stay at the Chesapeake Bay Beach House. The house was very clean and the owners, who live down the street, were wonderfully helpful and nice. Our two boys, ages 9 and 6, loved the beach...searching for crabs, fishing, and climbing the stone jetties.


- Friendly and helpful owners.

- Quiet and peaceful community.

- Very clean house with a large kitchen.

- A one to two minute walk from the front door to the beach.

- Quiet beach with soft white sand and only a few other families in sight.

- Virtually no waves since you're on the bay with stone jetties along the beach.

- Outdoor shower with spacious covered porch.

- Richardson's Cafe located nearby which is a fabulous "small town" restaurant.

- Close to a Food Lion


- Mosquitoes. Which are pretty common in the low areas around the bay. Just come prepared, as we did, with bug spray and citronella sticks.

- Lack of a driveway and front walkway. You'll need to carry your items through the front yard which isn't terrible.

- Outdated. Though the house is very clean and well maintained, it is outdated. Older bathrooms, laminate counters, etc.


If you're looking for a laid back vacation home, which is off the beaten trail, then Chesapeake Bay Beach House is for you. It's an affordable house for young families with small kids. The beach is wonderful with it's soft sand, calm water, and only a handful of other beach goers.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your visit. I wish we had known you had mosquito problems. They are a nuisance at the Bay, so we have the yard sprayed every three weeks by a mosquito company. They will come back and spray if there are any mosquitoes!

Great beach home!

  • 4 of 5

The house was great and was right across the street from the beach, although there was better beach access right down the street. We rented the house for the weekend with a group of friends for a wedding. The house had plenty of room for everyone, and we had fun bringing groceries and enjoying the amenities of the home. However, there is no internet at the home and most of us had little to no reception at the home, so communication was limited. Also, we had a very rainy weekend, with not much break in the weather to enjoy the nearby beach. Because of all the rain, we learned the hard way that you are dependent on the tides for access to and from the home in case of inclement weather. We drove through standing water a few times and had to turn around and wait because of the water covering the access road. We missed the brunch the morning after the wedding because we made the unfortunate mistake at trying to leave exactly at high tide, even though the rain had stopped the night before. We had to turn around and wait 2 hours for the water to recede in order to be able to leave the weekend.

Owner's Response: We are truly sorry for any inconvenience that the water caused you. I should have been more clear when I contacted to let you know about the tides. That was not typical. The bay was encountering impacts from tropical storm Ida in conjunction with the Super Blood moon. We have been renting our house for three years, and this is the first time Mother Nature has impacted one of our guests. Thank you for your nice comments about the house, and we hope you will come back again and have nothing, but blue skies. Thanks, Rick and Molly
