Fantastic Paddlers Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We (Burnham Guides) brought a group of paddlers to the island for 3 days of kayaking around the barrier islands and everyone said it was the best trip ever!! These were all people from the Eastern Shore, who got to experience something special in their own backyard, and they were amazed. We normally camp, so pulling up to this cozy guesthouse with comfortable beds, hot showers and a fully-equipped kitchen was a real treat! The Hehls are the most welcoming and hospitable people and we also enjoyed their dog Belle! Among the highlights: we bought a bushel of fresh crabs from watermen at the boat ramp and Karl steamed them up for us; sunsets on our own private beach, morning yoga on the deck, good food, conversation and drink around the table, oh, and paddling everyday to Mockhorn Island, Smith and Fisherman, bird-watching including two bald eagles. These islands all once had homes like this 1930s Holly Bluff hunting lodge, but they have all fell into disrepair or succumbed completely to the sea. This is a slice of history and one of the only opportunities you will ever get to stay on a Virginia seaside island. We are returning in the spring.

First Paddling Trip

  • 5 of 5

What a great Base camp for a paddling weekend! The Beds were very comfortable!(slept like baby). Clean, and for a neat freak that was very important! Ladies, no need to bring your hair dryers. Didn't think they had outlets for them. Soooooo go and just enjoy the simple things. In my one word I think this place is AWESOME!! Not to mention, the owners Carla, Carl and Mary were very nice people. They wanted everything right for us!

Getting Away

Whenever I have been to Holly Bluff, I feel I have totally been away from this world I live in, refreshed, relaxed and exhilarated.
