The Mystic Seahorse, a quiet cottage on Gwynn's Island in Mathews at the end of Kibble Creek off the Chesapeake Bay. Wintertime here offers many mild days to walk to the beach, ride a bike, relax with a movie, then enjoy dinner at a local eatery. And we are located within an hour of many historic sites, entertainment, wineries, breweries and shopping: Historic Triangle, Busch Gardens, many Antique Malls, Williamsburg Pottery, and much more!

We had a great stay this past weekend. The hosts have thought of everything to keep you entertained! Next time, we'll try to stay longer so we can enjoy the water more. It's a nice quiet part of the island walking distance to the beach. The kids had a blast too!

It's a great place and you won't want to miss it. Enjoy all the beauty of a island that sits on the Chesapeake Bay and the Piankitank River. A little closer to Heaven.
