About Sheri

We are both from the northeast and have always enjoyed our summers with the warm weather and outdoor activities. We love real estate and when we first visited this home we saw so much potential. We have carefully and methodically thought through every improvement and change we have made to the property. We really treasure our time at La Casa Del Rio - The River House.

Sheri purchased this estate in 2011

Why Sheri chose Elkton

For years and years we searched for the perfect vacation home for our family. It seemed like everywhere we looked, our time was spent fighting traffic and navigating our way through the sea of other tourists. We actually 'stumbled upon' this amazing home and decided it would be perfect for us and so many other families. It is large enough to host multiple families and generations. Also, for the couple or even in-laws that want more privacy, the guest house is an incredible and spacious retreat.

What makes this estate unique

The views, the views, the views are amazing! You will simply melt with the sunsets.

Incredible - Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
My group (5 families with small children) stayed at this property, and the entire stay, from start to finish, was incredible. The house is immaculate and well-appointed, the owner was quick to reply to my emails, the location was perfectly convenient to the families from DC and from Pennsylvania. The views - just stunning. The long driveway even became a perfect backdrop for family portraits. We hope this house is still available throughout 2015, because the group unanimously agrees that the house was perfect for us. Thank you, Sheri, for making our trip such an incredible experience.

Wonderful return trip to the River House

  • 5 of 5
Once again, our family had a terrific time at the beautiful River House. Sheri - thanks for the kitchen improvements. We love all the room to spread out and the two sleeping wings. Our family has folks ages 3 to 72 and everyone had a ball. Plenty to do even in the cold and this year the little ones got out onto the playground. The place is immaculately clean and beautifully furnished and we will surely return.

Awesome family vacation at the river house!

  • 5 of 5
Cant say enough amazing things about the river house! We were a group of 12 adults ranging from 23-88 and two young toddlers. It was a perfect house for all. There was so much room, you never felt as if you were in each other's way at all. The views and property are amazing. From the river to the pool to the volleyball court. Sheri was very helpful and attentive- answered me promptly and took care of anything i asked. It truly is such a spacious amazing home. The pictures cannot do it justice- you see out to the amazing view from all the windows of the house -- from the driveway you can see the view through the home. Its gorgeous!

I have no complaints just advice/things to consider or things that could be improved. I realize its a large property but there were maintenance men there every single day of our trip- it affected my brother in law and sister in law most as they were in the guest house. They were fine its just there, and rather early. Also if you plan on cooking bring a couple decent frying pans and KNIVES - knives are a MUST. its such a luxurious house but some things in the kitchen need replacing, if you plan on cooking. The insects really weren't that bad (bring on the water) but there is a bee issue around the pool. Also keep in mind theres not much to do around the area. Chesapeake city is adorable. It was perfect for us but you'd have to travel for real "night life". We so loved mil run orchards!
I can only hope to be back one day! :) thanks for everything

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback Krista! After your stay I checked out the pots, frying pans and utensils. They suffered some wear throughout the rental season and we have invested in all new items. The home is fully stocked w/ a 14-piece pots and pan set that is brand new and a new set of knives. Also, I have picked up some tablecloths should our guests choose to use them.
As for the maintenance men, we are just about finished up with our extensive grounds improvement. We have added quite a bit of sod to make the grounds much more beautiful for our guests and we will not have extensive maintenance occurring in the future. We do our best to try and complete all maintenance Saturday afternoon before our guest arrive but sometimes there is not enough time to get everything done or the weather does not cooperate. We are committed to our guests having a wonderful stay at The River House.

Incredible rental!

  • 5 of 5
I rented the bay house with a group of 13 people and we had an amazing time! The views were incredible and the house was incredibly decorated and comfortable. The linens were clean and plentiful and all the beds were comfortable. There is nothing that i can add to improve our stay. It was one of our best vacations yet!

A Fabulous Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Nine women gathered in this amazing house to celebrate our YOFO (You are Only Fifty Once!) year together. The home is gorgeous and great for a large group with plenty of shared and individual space. As with many group gatherings, the kitchen was the main hang-out place and was a warm and cheerful place to be. The house was clean and spacious with state of the art technology for music and television and the wine was greatly appreciated too! The owner met us there and explained everything we needed to know and was lovely and welcoming.

The weather cooperated with 50 degrees and sunny on a February Saturday so sitting outside by the river (wrapped in blankets but still) was a real treat. And the hot tub at night was great too!

Chesapeake City was a cute little town for shopping and wandering but with such a beautiful home, we did not feel any desire to leave!

We hope to make it an annual event. Thanks again for a sweet getaway and a lovely weekend of memories.
