This Wonderful Waterfront Retreat is on The Elk River, just minutes from picturesque Chesapeake City. The 'River House' is a secluded sanctuary that offers inviting spacious living areas and two cozy bungalows. The Main House includes a great room with spectacular views of the Elk River and inter-coastal waterway, while two bungalows both offer jalousie window porches to enjoy the lovely breezes, views of the river and breathtaking sunsets. Enjoy the peacefulness of fishing from the dock or a beautiful day out on the magnificent river. Book Now, Serenity Awaits!

This is the perfect location for the multi family reunions, gatherings, and getaways. The ample grounds are ideal for wiffle ball, badminton, volleyball, horseshoes, and picnics. An intimate beach provides swimming, boating, and jet skiing, or just basking in the sun and napping in the hammock. There is excellent rock fish (striper) fishing or crabbing off the end of the 100 foot dock that is complete with an 8000 pound boat lift to cradle your boat or jet ski. In the evening, the kids can roast marshmallows in the fire pit and then pitch a tent and sleep under the stars. If you're looking for the perfect place for a guys weekend, a girls retreat, or a getaway for the whole family, you'll love the 'River House' .

Gorgeous location and perfect site for our family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property for a 70th birthday family/friends long weekend in late May. The property was the perfect location for all of us to gather. The site on the Elk River is lovely, interesting, and provided us with a fun place for the kids to dig/wade/swim. There is lots of lawn for badminton and corn hole games [you bring your own] and Dennis provided horseshoes and a pit for throwing them.

The "big" house was the main gathering space for meals and dancing to the delightful juke box music. That juke box has tunes from the 40's on and provided us with lots of happy sing-alongs as well. The views from the windows in the huge front room were spectacular. The massive size of that room held a goodly amount of us when the rains came, and we were not at all crowded. There was enough space for many activities to simultaneously happen [cards, puzzles, board games, art projects!]

There are lots of refrigerators in the kitchens and the garage. There is a gas grill which we put to good use and the cupboards were stocked with a great many dishes, platters, serving implements, etc. as well as condiments and teas that previous families had left behind, There were lots of pots and pans.

We brought our own linens and towels, but there were some at the house as well. There is a washer/dryer in the main house.

EVERYONE who came said that it was a PERFECT location for a family get-together and that we all need to come back again.

Couldn't think of a more relaxing spot

  • 5 of 5

Spent three days here with some old friends from far away and couldn't think of any place better. We played wiffleball on the lawn, floated on the river, watched the sunset from the dock, saw ospreys feeding their young, did a little fishing and cracked crabs outside on the picnic table with a few adult beverages. The owner, Dennis, has a great property on his hands.

A Fabulous House for Our Annual Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful vacation home. It was perfect for our group that numbered 16 for the weekend then down to 13 for the majority of the week. Ages ranged from 70 to 4 and how perfect to have the different houses to make everyone so comfortable. The main house with the large dining table was perfect for our evening meals with everyone around the table. The beach on the river, the yard for games, the quiet places to get away to read, the portable fire pit for evening gatherings and s'mores was the best. And a plus was proximity to a charming historical town where we got a river cruise that not only showed the area of the Elk River but also the Chesapeake Bay with loads of historical information. What more could you ask for... Oh wait...you are also within an hour of Philadelphia and Baltimore, two great cities to explore. We have been doing this vacation for 15 years to keep our scattered family close at least for one week a year and everyone agreed this was the best!! Hope to see you again!!

Daughter's Wedding Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This home was by far one of the best homes on the water in Chesapeake City. We rented this home because our daughter was getting married in Chesapeake City and we needed a close location so we would not have too much travel time! We had a large group, and the accommodations could not have been more perfect for us! The "Great Room" was the total hi-light and we all enjoyed gathering there to spend time together. It was exciting to watch the very large ships traveling down the canal. The pier and dock to accommodate our son in law's boat was perfect. The other cottages were perfect for the group we had staying with us. A wonderful kitchen, living room and the bedrooms in the main house were fantastic. I would recommend this rental to anyone for a nice getaway weekend! The only regret we had was that we spent so much time focusing on the wedding events, we did not have enough time to just sit around inside and outside to enjoy the scenery. I guarantee if you rent this home on the water,you will not regret it!

Best Girls Weekend Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This property provided us with the perfect setting for the 5th Anniversary of our annual Girls Weekend. The main house is beautiful, extremely comfortable and has every amenity you'll need. We loved the guest cottages too.

The bar was the perfect gathering place after sipping spiked cider by the outside fire pit and watching a gorgeous sunset each day. (Don;t miss out on the jukebox!)

The owners were wonderful to work with.

Chesapeake City is a short drive away and very quaint.We found a great band at the Chesapeake Inn Saturday night and a dependable taxi service to get us home. Five stars PLUS!
