About the neighbourhood
Rigby Retreat is located on a quiet, one-acre lane directly facing the Chesapeake Bay but protected by a sand bar referred to as 'Rigby Island'. It's near a popular fishing spot referred to as 'Hole in the Wall', just south of Gwynn's Island in Mathews County. Directly across the bay is the Eastern Shore of Virginia, and another popular fishing spot known as 'the Cell'. Wolf Trap Lighthouse is visible off of New Point Comfort where another namesake lighthouse is located. There are two small public beaches nearby. Yorktown has a large public beach about 20 minutes away, and is part of the Historic Triangle of Yorktown/Jamestown/Williamsburg. Virginia Beach is 40 minutes away. Busch Gardens/Water Country and Kings Dominion are approximately 40 minutes.... more
