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.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this estate in 2011

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.

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

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.

GREAT PLACE FOR FAMILY GATHERING

  • 4 of 5
Our extended family celebrated Thanksgiving together this year at the River House. We were a group ranging in age from 2 to 70 and everything in between. Grandparents, parents, young adults, teens, kids, and little ones - and we all enjoyed ourselves. We especially liked the spaciousness of the house, the beauty of the interior, the views of the river, the quiet location, the way everyone could do their own thing, or gather in small groups, or all be together in the living room or dining room for a meal or a game. Depsite the chilly weather, people played basketball, walked by the river and went jogging. Wish we could have stayed longer.

AN EXCELLENT STAY AT THE RIVER HOUSE ON THE ELK RIVER

  • 5 of 5
My family and I booked this home and highly recommend it you anyone that enjoys million dollar views and high end quality homes. Indicative of quality is how the property is represented and Sheri was very professional, pleasant, and informative. Before arriving, we thought that the pictures on the website were too good to be true but the house is in perfect condition, as shown in the pictures, large rooms, clean, fully equipped, in addition the pictures of the sun sets on the water were more imazging in real life. The property has many features that we did not see on the web site and that was a nice surprise. Also the near by area is superb for fine dining, historical sites, house back riding, water sports, and Delaware for tax free shopping. Once there, we found out that the house surpassed our expectations in every way and we will certainly book this house again.

BOOKING MY NEXT STAY NOW!

  • 5 of 5
I had an amazing stay at the Riverhouse with my companion and four of our closest friends. We all live a very active and healthy lifestyle and this property was able to accommodate. This incredible home sits on about 6 acres of land that was great for runs, working out, and just enjoying the outdoors without leaving the gates of the estate. This property also features a volleyball area, a basketball court, and kayaking, we had more than enough options to stay active while being on vacation.

Inside the home was just as pleasing! Every detail was carefully planned out. The beds were extremely comfortable and the rooms were spacious. The bathrooms were also spacious and plentiful, it seemed like everywhere you went in the home you ran into another one. We had a lot of fun preparing meals in the kitchen as it showcased everything you could think of to make a delicious and healthy meal. When you add the movie room, pool table, guest house, and hot tub, it really just sends this home over the top.

About a mile away from this property we found nice dining spots in Chesapeake City. Just a short drive over the bridge. A small and cute little town with tons of character. We didn't spend much time here though, because it seemed like everything we needed was back at the house. We will definitely be back at the Riverhouse and we are booking our next stay now. Thank you Sheri for the amazing time! Looking to visit you many times more in the future.
