Our vacation river home was designed and built to entertain our many friends and family members. We affectionately refer to it as 'the house that love built'. It is owned by 2 couples that have known one another for 30 years. Trish & Jeff Tomsic and Alston & Bruce Johnson of Richmond.
We new the Northern Neck was special, but had no idea of its splendor! The crabbing and fishing, the endless sighting of Bald Eagles, Golden Eagles and Osprey. The fabulous sunsets and evenings entertained by the starlit sky you must experience! Everyone who has been here wants to come back...so we decided to share. We open our home to guests only 5 weeks out of the year. This keeps our home a home, and allows others to enjoy what we experience the rest of the year.
We are lucky enough to live in Richmond, a short drive to the River, which allows us to visit frequently. We also like to travel, and believe that this hideaway should never go without a family enjoying all that it and the Rappahannock River has to offer.
We have 9 award wining wineries within 30 minutes of our point.
There are many Historical attractions and quaint towns to explore, small locally owned restaurants that take pride in the local specialties.
Antique shops and thrift stores speckle the local landscape which provides treasure hunting at its finest!
Our neighborhood is small and shared by wonderful, friendly people who appreciate the area as much as you will.
A common misconception of the Rappahannock River is that people think of our river being a muddy river. The Rappahannock River is far from that. It is the cleanest river on the east coast. There is absolutely no Industrial sites along it's shores. We have the most incredible expansive view with white sandy beaches and when the winds picks up...we have rolling waves that put you at the beach! . Everyone loves the sound and the smell of the salt water and constant Virginia Breeze! Out Point is named Little Florida and when you Google Earth it's location, you will see why!! It is truly a magical place!
