Girls Weekend
Wanted to point out something. I stayed in upstairs bedroom on left. Inside the doorway there is a raised nail that I caught my foot on. Just needs to be pounded down so no injury happens. Very clean, very comfortable and homey. Did need tissues, however. Only negative is road noise. All in all, a wonderful time there. Thank you!

A Charming Stay Near the Sea!
Our stay in Mathews was wonderful! This home is well-maintained and cozy, and the owners placed a lot of thought into the amenities – especially for dog owners! The house has a lot of character. Natural light and light paint really compliment the wood paneling in the living room. The dining room space is great, and the kitchen has everything we needed. The bedrooms are very comfortable. The house is very close (within walking distance on a good day) to some nice restaurants and downtown Mathews. It's just across the road from Salty Dog, which has excellent pizza. We really appreciated the information binder that contained lots of info about the area. And it's only a few miles from some lovely beaches. Highly recommend!
