As we mentioned in the previous post, Greg recently saw a bald eagle just off out pier. It turns out that our Inn is within the roaming range of the bald eagles at the Rappahanock River Valley Natinal Wildlife Refuge. One of the 3 refuges in the area, the RRVNWR protects the nesting grounds of bald eagles as well as other rare and endangered species such as the perigrene falcon and shortnose sturgeon among others.

Visitors can view the wildlife along this preserve with a day cruise aboard the Captain Thomas down the Rappahanock past the preserve and on to the Ingleside Plantation Winery. Hikers have their options as well, the Vorhees Nature Preservefor example. With 4 miles of self guided trails, the beautiful Rappahanock area can be seen in all it’s glory. The only catch is that the bald eagle nesting area is off limits during nesting season which lasts from mid-November to mid-July.

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.

The Historic Triangle:

Colonial Williamsburg – Interact with people from the 18th century and see how they lived. The centerpiece of the Historic Triangle, Williamsburg is a must see! 

Jamestown – The first permanent English settlement. Experience the life of the first settlers and Virginia’s first capital.
