Great area for biking--all roads lead to the water and Mathews County is perfectly flat! Self check- in.

The 7 acre property includes a wooded trail, wrap-around waterfront with spectacular sunset views and a dock for launching canoes, kayaks, stand-up boards etc. Indoor amenities include a refrigerator, microwave, keurig, smart TV, wi-fi, privately controlled minisplit for setting desired heat/ac temp.

Guest access
Guests have access to an assortment of boats (canoe, kayaks, stand-up board) to launch from a private pier.

Other things to note
From time to time, there is a border collie named Albus Dumbledore on the property who is very friendly. Please let us know if you would like us to put him inside.

Location

Port Haywood, Virginia, United States

Mathews County is surrounded by water, rich with history and home to many artists. The town of Mathews has all of the basics (grocery store, laundromat, bank, pharmacy, etc.) along with several locally-owned restaurants, an active farmers market, antique shops, used book store, and art galleries.

The Paddler's Rest is situated down a lane about half a mile from a country store that has prepared foods, a wine cellar, craft beers, fishing gear, bait etc.

Cyclists and bird watchers might be interested in visiting the New Point Comfort lighthouse (5 miles) and Bethel beach (6 miles) as destinations. Paddlers can explore the history of the area by water using the Blueways Trail maps. Williams Wharf, the tide mill at Poplar Grove (owned by John Lennon and Yoko Ono) and Mathews Courthouse are all easy paddling destinations from the Paddler's Rest.
