Osprey Nest at Grandview
Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of Virginia’s tourism industry. Virginia Green has established "core activities" specific to each sector of tourism, and these practices are considered the required minimum for participation in the program. However, Virginia Green encourages its participants to reduce their environmental impacts in all aspects of their operations, and this profile provides a full list of all their “green” activities. These are the activities that guests / customers can expect to find when they visit this facility.
Osprey Nest at Grandview
The Osprey Nest is a king-size rental suite specializing in relaxation and privacy for guests wanting to vacation and enjoy Mathews County's Chesapeake Bay, Virginia. The entire second floor of our home, Grandview, is dedicated to the guests of the Osprey Nest.
We are permanent residents of the Chesapeake Bay and want to do our part to ensure its continuation for generations to come.
