For the inquisitive: Reedville is a fishing village located at the far eastern end of Virginia's Northern Neck, population around 2,163. It is located in Northumberland County, which has about 94,558 residents. Reedville is named for Captain Elijah Reed, who founded the town in 1874 when he started the menhaden fishing industry, which is still going today.

It features historic Victorian mansions built by factory owners and fishing boat captains. Main Street was known as 'Millionaire's Row,' home to wealthy fishermen who made their fortunes from the menhaden that was plentiful in the Potomac and Chesapeake Bay. The Reedville Fishermen's Museum, in the Reedville Historic District, tells the story of the menhaden fishing industry, the watermen of the Northern Neck, and the Victorian fishing village of Reedville. Self-guided walking tours of the historic district are available from the museum.

Reedville is also a significant charter-fishing center for Chesapeake bay. Don't forget to visit the local wineries.

Please note that we require at least 2 weeks notice for reservations. We will consider last minute rentals if we do not have guests arriving at least 2 days prior or after your visit. This is for cleaning purposes. Our Property Manager sanitizes the house before each guest which may require more than one person to assist and requires planning.

About Cheryl and Maurice

We fell in love with this house and property as it was on the River, had its own private dock and the property was gorgeous. We wanted to share this with others so they can see the beauty in Reedville as we did. We want our guests to be pampered so we include an extensive list of amenities on-site. We hope you enjoy the house as much as we do.

Cheryl and Maurice purchased this house in 2013

Why Cheryl and Maurice chose Chesapeake Bay - Northern Neck

This property is located off the Little Wicomico River with easy access to the Chesapeake for great fishing. Quiet neighborhood. Wonderful property to get away from it all for family reunions and quite romantic getaways.

What makes this house unique

Everything you may possibly need is on site.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can't say enough good things about our stay at Stunning River Retreat. Cheryl and Maurice have thought of everything. They provide everything you could ever need. Their home is very comfortable and easily accommodates two families with children.

The books that they compiled for information on the area are very detailed and informative.

Thank you for going above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable.

Go and stay and you won't be dissappointed. Everything you need is right here. So much to do at the house on a rain-day, or any-time. Kids NEVER got bored-fishing was good and it was so nice not to have to drive and put the boat in and out. Am planning on going back next year already. One word of advice though- GET YOU FISHING LICENSE BEFORE YOU START FISHING- wife and I took 4 year old for a ride the first day we put boat in water and ended up with lines in the water- cost us each $145.00. Pat had told us before that we could get a boat license for $38.00 but we were too stupid to go and do it. This allows anyone on the boat to fish. GO GET THE LICENSE before you start fishing. Ride on Pat's boat was AWESOME. Pat is a very nice man that was always happy to answer any questions- both before we came down and while we were there.

GO AND ENJOY, Craig and Sherri

Fishing Camp

  • 5 of 5

This was our seventh year. We have enjoyed staying at this house relaxing on the deck. The home is large enough for eight grown man. The kitchen is well equipped and very easy to work in. The bedrooms are large and clean. The furniture is all new and well maintained. The dock has plenty of room for 4 boats. The channel is very easy to navigate even in the dark. It's only about a 20 minute boat ride to the Smith Point inlet

Fifth Time Back!

  • 5 of 5

This is our fifth time back to Stunning River Retreat - yes, that's right, our fifth time! Obviously, I highly recommend this vacation house, not only because the house is well-equipped with countless amenities, but also because the owners, Cheryl and Maurice are an absolute delight. We were fortunate to having met them in a previous stay.

This stay was very memorable for my family and I as we had Thanksgiving dinner here. Such a delight to cook in the well-equipped/stocked kitchen. Entertainment here is plentiful, more than you can imagine. The location is very quiet and serene. The neighbors, if you do see them on a walk, are very friendly.

Upgrades are being done to this property - I cannot wait to see them, as we are already in love with this property and all that it offers as-is! We'll be back later this year. Perfect place to get away from it all and yet enjoy all the luxuries.

Love this home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th time staying at Stunning River Retreat. Maurice and Cheryl are a delight to work with. My sister, brother-in-law and husband all love the amenities this home offers. You only need to bring your clothes and food. Everything else is furnished. Entertainment abounds in this house from bicycles, fishing poles, games, electronics, pool table, basketball, corn hole, kayaks, paddle boat etc. Everything you need to keep busy is here. Kitchen is fully equipped with any pots, pans, appliances or utensils that you might need along with a great selection of spices. We brought our pontoon and thoroughly enjoyed going out just cruising the area and fishing. Crab traps are also provided by the owners if you wish to go crabbing at the dock. 2 gas grills and 1 charcoal grill are also provided. The hot tub was awesome and helped my Sis get rid of some of her aches and pains. I just enjoyed sitting under the shade tree and reading. This is a very quiet neighborhood. We always enjoy going to Chitty Chats for ice cream and make our annual trip to Crazy Crab for their to-die-for hushpuppies. We also drive in to Kilmarknock to do a little shopping in the town. And an extra touch that is oh, so nice is the bottle of wine and gift basket full of goodies that awaits you when you arrive. If you can't relax and unwind here, you can't anywhere. Super terrific vacation!! We will be back again!!

Awesome retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay, I only wish we would have stayed longer! The kitchen was very well equipped as was the game room. The house is clean and cozy and the fishing/ crabbing pier is a great way to spend some time as well.

Great home with so much to do!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our annual July 4 getaway. The home was so well outfitted for guests - the best we've ever experienced. It was exceptionally clean and everything was in working order. We enjoyed all of the amenities you have available - canoe, kayaks, paddle boat, pool table, hot tub, ping pong, bikes, crabbing and fishing... so much! Even with a rainy weekend, the kids fished and just had a blast. A great rental in a lovely location!
