The space
The Fish House is designed for comfort and relaxation, similar to the Crab Shack but a bit larger to accommodate a family of four (minimum age of six for children) or four adults. The cottage is pet-friendly and the cleaning fee already includes a $75 pet fee for up to two dogs. Please let us know whether or not you are bringing pets so we can adjust fee as needed.

Eclectic art and decorations throughout the cottage showcase talented local artists as well as our love of the Florida Keys and some pieces from memory lane. The second level of the cottage contains your master bedroom with a king-size Sleep Number bed, a second bedroom with twin beds and a full size bathroom. The interior staircase is a circular staircase. The exterior stairs are full size. The first level offers an open concept gourmet kitchen and living room area with a leather sofa to sink into while enjoying the large screen flat panel tv, featuring satellite tv. Love to cook? Master Chef Karla designed the gourmet kitchen with cooks in mind and she loves to share great recipes for locally available seafood. Chill & grill with a gas grill, and two swings located underneath the cottage in the patio area. The cottage is elevated on concrete pilings for the view. Both bathrooms have showers (no bath tub).

Guests of the Fish House and the Crab Shack share the property amenities with each other and us: two tandem kayaks, swimming pool (in season), five hole mini-golf course with patio area, the pier and floating pier for easy launch of kayaks and reading and lounge chairs throughout the property. Also each cottage has two private adult bikes and a Weber gas grill available for use. As always, we ask guests to be mindful and courteous within shared spaces.

Where you’ll be

Bohannon, Virginia, United States

Mathews was voted one of the "Coolest Small Towns in America". Mathews County's culture is a bit like the Florida Keys (which we love) in that you quickly adapt to island time. You stop worrying about all your emails and to do lists and time is measured by meal time, cocktail time and nap time. Our double hammock swing poolside was purchased on a trip to Key West. We specialize in getting people to relax, take a deep breath and enjoy nature in all its glory. Mathews County doesn't even have a stoplight but we have 90 miles of water trails great for kayaking and boating and nine coastal trails that are part of Virginia's Birding & Wildlife Trails system. For bicyclists, the Tour de Chesapeake is held annually in Mathews offering bike routes of varying lengths.

We (Dave and Karla) are the proud 'parents' of 6 yr old Skink, our yellow Lab (we were also blessed for 14 yrs with Nothing-To-Me-Now Fredo and for 13 yrs with Deputy Festus, who you'll see in a lot of our photos) and the delighted uncle and aunt of ten nieces/nephews living in Virginia and California. Our labs have traveled w/us on vacations down to the Florida Keys and up to Bar Harbor (where we honeymooned 25+ years ago). All the kids in our lives regularly remind us how amazing the rural life is and how lucky we are to be so immersed in nature. For her primary job, Karla is a market research analyst. Don't hold it against us but we're die hard Dallas Cowboys fans since the late 70s.
