3 bedroom 2 full bath river home
Why Karen Byrd chose Church View
This property is great because you can experience so many things while on the island that you don't get a chance in other places. There is the beach, the marsh, fishing, crabbing, swimming, boating, floating, on the Rappahannock River which feeds the Chesapeake Bay.
What makes this House unique
You will fall in love with this place because the nature itself creates great memories. Watching the osprey and their young, or seeing dolphin pass by or watch your kids catch their first fish! The memories are endless! It is a safe place to ride bikes, take a walk down the beach or pitch a tent and have fun camping. We seldom get jelly fish so most days you can swim without worries! Paddle board, water ski, sail, kayak, or just float on the water, you will be refreshed when you return home!
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Nice getaway spot with friendly neighbors.
Great View in secluded area
We had a great time here. Plenty of beds and room for the six of us (5 adults and 1 child) with a great view in the morning. River is right there with a small beach and dock. It's also back on a quiet road, so it is a great place to get away.
Karen had everything there we needed and we had a great time!
Perfect for a “get away from it all” vacation
Adorable house with amazing views of the river. Excellent for complete rest and relaxation. Property is away from it all, sitting right on the water. Big dock for fishing, crabbing or just relaxing. Gorgeous sunset views, lapping waves and wildlife all around. If you want lots of entertainment this may not be the right property for you. We wanted to escape our busy life, with no plans or itinerary’s, lots of lounging and quiet, and the property is perfect for that. The house is adorable and well decorated. Awesome air conditioning, creature comforts, puffy couches and internet. The
kids wished they had better WiFi, but that was the whole point! We caught about a dozen crabs a day and steamed them up ourselves. Wish we would have brought our poles as the fish were leaping out of the water.
Local eats and shopping are about 30-45 mi away. But that was ok as we were mainly on hunker down mode most of the time. Highly recommend the Urbana restaurants “Something Different” home made ice cream amazing!!,(whisky gingerbread omg), Old Oak Tree restaurant (get the crab cake)and the pizzeria by the bridge, (great crust)!
We took the kids to Busch Gardens which was a hour away, had a great time and then we were right back to resting!
Beautiful nights spent around the campfire with starry skies or just gathering around the table playing cards.
Kayaking was awesome, but watch that yellow one! I could go on and on 😀�, we had a great time.
Thanks for the memories!
Thanks so much Ryan family! So glad you made memories on Montague Island! Thanks for taking care of our home as if it were your own! Hope we will see you again! The Byrd's
Exactly as advertised.
The river house was the perfect getaway for our group of four old friends. The provided crab pots helped us pull in plenty of Chesapeake blue crab and we enjoyed the kayaks for sunset paddling. Everything was as described and the owner's response time was great when we had a question.
Thank you for sharing your house with us. We would definitely recommend and return.
Thank you so much! It is a special area to make lasting memories! Thanks for being excellent guests treating our home like it was your own. Hope you can make it back in the future!
Great river house for couple with children
The location is perfect for boating and swimming, even though it is far from the Bay, which took us about 45-50 minutes to reach by boat. There is a dock, boat lift and even a nice small sandy beach right off the property. The common areas of the house are beautifully decorated and properly appointed. The kitchen is very roomy and well appointed. However, the way the bedrooms are furnished is perfect for a couple with children, but not for two adult couples. The pictures on VRBO appeared to show a bedroom with a Full/Queen size bed, and a second bedroom with a daybed that appeared to pull out into a Full-size bed. Instead, the daybed pulled out into two separate twin-like beds. This made our stay awkward when trying to assign rooms, as we were vacationing with another adult couple. There is only one true Full/Queen size bed in the house. I would suggest adding a second queen or full-size bed to one of the other bedrooms. Also, the tabletop grill provided was very small for a property that is advertised to accommodate up to six guests, but it was not a deal breaker for us.
The interior of the house was meticulously cleaned, but the outdoor area had debris and cobwebs around the back deck.
Also, the owner was very responsive when I contacted her about a couple of issues with one of the dining chairs and one of the mattress frames.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay as we spent most of our time outdoors.
Thanks so much for your review and for taking care of our home as if it were your own. The daybed can be made into a king bed, I am sorry I did not recommend that to you. Thanks so much for taking the time to review and help us to do better in the future. We will certainly address and look at some of the areas you suggested. Hope you will come back for a visit again!

This place is amazing! The house and owner was so warm and inviting. We enjoyed kayaking, fishing, crabbing and relaxing in and by the water. This house truly is a little piece of heaven on earth. It was the perfect birthday weekend! We would love to come back! Thank you so much for your hospitatlity and sharing your beautiful home!
Laurie, Thanks so much for your kind words. I am so glad that your birthday weekend was memorable. Because it has been our home for so many years, I am always so grateful when guests treat it like it was their own. Thank you for that. We hope you can make it back in the future. The Byrd's
