3000 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Genevieve
10 Guests . 4 Bedrooms . 3 Bathrooms

Overview

Sited high on a secluded 13 acre wooded lot w/ 350+ feet of beach, this lovely lodge is ideal for family vacations, reunions with friends or hosting a large party. The 40'x18' great room has two dining areas: both the 10 ft farm table and the 10 foot antique library table seat 12-14 each. Enjoy the panoramic view of the river from comfortable seating, fish or crab off the dock, build sandcastles on the shore, watch the resident osprey & eagles, read, listen to music or just relax. The kitchen, w/ 3 ovens and lots of counter space, accommodates many cooks. River House is located in Weems, 2 mi from Irvington, home of quaint cafes, fine restaurants, a winery & The Tides Inn and is 4 mi from charming Kilmarnock and White Stone with their antique centers, art studio, restaurants, museums, etc. There is a public boat launch nearby. Enjoy exploring the Northern Neck, so rich in history & revel in the gracious people who call this home. Come soothe your spirit by the magic of the Corrotoman.


Quiet and Secluded: The River House property is divided by a small private gravel road into two parts. 6+ acres on the river side with the house with a walk-way to the dock. The circular drive provides parking for numerous cars and the level yard is landscaped with many azaleas, camellias, laurel, bays, pines, magnolias and old growth trees. There is an Audobon Bird Sanctuary easement adjacent to the property. The 8+/- acres on the south side of the road is wooded with old paths throughout. The area roads are blacktopped and flat providing for an easy walk or bike ride.

Where Eagles Soar : The eagles are back, but they are sometimes eclipsed by the osprey who nest atop a pole in the river directly in front of the house. The osprey come in March to hatch and raise their offspring in warm weather and then fly south in October. Bring your binoculars if you are a birder for there is much to turn your eyes skyward. Herds of deer roam this area; however no hunting is allowed on the property. Crabs are plentiful during season and can be caught in the crab trap provided or off the dock with string, bait and a crab net. Fishing is pretty good too. A crab pot is available and the outdoor gas grill has a separate burner for cooking seafood.
