vacation rental description

The Crab Shack at Grandview provides the ultimate cottage for relaxation on Mathews County’s Chesapeake Bay VA. We’ve spent over a decade designing and renovating our property Grandview to give guests impeccable access to nature, relaxation and privacy. A great romantic vacation getaway or a memory making adventure for a small family awaits you. In May 2011, we finished the construction of the luxurious “Shack” complete with king size bedroom and gourmet kitchen. From your roof top deck, enjoy expansive views of the East River. Watch the sun rise over the water with your morning coffee on your private balcony. Crave relaxation? We’ve got it! Find what suits your vacation style best – swimming in the pool, fishing or crabbing on the pier, kayaking, biking, bird watching, strolling around the coastal landscaped pathways or lounging in chairs and hammocks located throughout our three acre property. Grandview has excellent access to the Lower Chesapeake for sailors, intracoastal cruisers & fisherman with dockage for small boats & deep water anchorage for larger craft. We hope your time at Grandview will show you why we came to Mathews for a weekend and decided to stay a lifetime!

cottage rental amenities

The Crab Shack was designed for comfort and relaxation. The second level of the Shack contains your bedroom with a king size Sleep Number bed as well as a living room area with drink fridge and a leather sofa to sink into while enjoying the large screen flat panel tv, featuring satellite tv with the professional football package and a 200+ DVD collection. Inflatable beds with all bedding are available for kids. Love to cook? Master Chef Karla designed the Shack’s gourmet kitchen with cooks in mind and she loves to share great recipes for locally available seafood. Step outside and pick fresh herbs from the garden. Think swings are just for kids or the outdoors? We’re big kids at heart and couldn’t resist adding a swing to the downstairs living area. Hop into the swing and soak in the view, watching the tide roll away. Looking to create your own sunset celebration? Grab a drink and head up to Crow's Nest, our rooftop deck with stunning views of the East River and a sunset over the soybean fields, and kick back at our LL Bean dining table and chairs topside.

What would vacation be without swimming! Refresh yourself at our swimming pool with bar area, double hammock swing, loungers, rocking chairs, dining table & grill. Can’t get enough of the water view then try your hand at good ole fashioned crabbing with chicken legs and strings on the pier or relax in the Adirondack chairs while the crab pots do the work for you. Revive yourself with a nap in the huge couples’ hammock in our mint garden (great for tea or mint juleps/mojitos) or rejuvenate your body & spirit in the large hot tub on Grandview’s waterside screened porch. Quiet time abounds as well so relax in one of our reading areas or just kick back and rest in the lounge chairs located throughout the property. Bird watchers love viewing dozens of water fowl and bird species including our resident heron, egret and osprey. Stroll around the pathways and neighborhood and enjoy our wildlife and gardens with coastal landscaping. If you want to try an adventure, take our kayaks for a paddle and our bikes for a spin. Love fishing? Bring your boat, tie up to our pier and join in catching some of the hundreds of flounder and rockfish garnered by our guests and resident expert, Capt Dave who is happy to provide local fishing intelligence. 

Looking for a romantic getaway just for two, check out the Osprey Nest at Grandview (VRBO #365572) for our rental suite or rent both the Shack and the Nest at a discounted price for a larger group. While smoking is not permitted in either the cottage or the suite, guests are permitted to smoke outdoors in approved areas. We are pet lovers and have a pets considered policy so please contact us about your specific pet to see if Grandview is right for vacationing with your family member. Courtesy laundry service provided for week long guests. Spend less time packing and more time playing! At Grandview, we provide many items that other rentals make you bring or rent. See our website for a complete list or email us with any needs or questions. Let us know how we can make your time in Mathews County GRAND!
