Try stand-up paddleboarding!

A couple of weeks ago, Steve Casper and Mackey Hall, the founders of Chesapeake Boardsports, set up in our back yard giving lessons in paddleboarding. It was great fun and surprisingly easy! After a simple lesson, everyone who tried it was standing up on their boards and paddling away. These boards look like super-sized surf boards and are well-balanced for easy navigating. Here’s some photos from that day:

As you can see, everyone was able to stand up and paddle away. Visit Steve and Macky’s website at go-standup.com.

Kayakers from all over who are in the know come to Mathews to paddle the Blueways Water Trails. They aren’t at all crowded and the scenery is spectacular! For birdwatchers, there’s plenty of rare waterfowl among others (Greg saw a Bald Eagle a few days ago right off our pier). There’s also historic and scenic sites to see like lighthouses and fishing villages.

Here at the Inn at Tabbs Creek, we are fortunate to be just a few hundred yards off the East River Trail. Tabb’s Creek is a short offshoot of the East River. There are 18 public access launch sites and for our guests, one private one a few yards from their rooms.

Hello! We are soon to be opening a bed and breakfast called The Inn at Tabb’s Creek, located in historic Mathews County Virginia (learn more about Mathews County here). We hope to be fully operational by the spring of 2009. Until then, we will be posting about the wonderful renovations we will be doing as well as highlighting some of the many sites to see and activities to do in and around Mathews.

Our B&B is located on beautiful, spacious waterfront property along Tabb’s Creek near the East River, which is an offshoot of the Chesapeake Bay. We offer access to kayaking, canoeing, fishing, sailing and birdwatching among many other activities. Conveniently located near historic Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown, the Inn at Tabb’s Creek is less than 3 hours from Washington DC and less than an hour and a half from both Richmond and Norfolk Va.
