You will enjoy the; outdoor park-like activity areas which include: sand volleyball court, tether ball, horse shoes, fire pit, barbecue areas, landscaped bridge, children’s play ground with swing set, picnic tables, scenic track for running or walking that meanders throughout the property, and professionally landscaped areas which complement the Chesapeake Bay’s setting and ambiance.

Sit by completely reconditioned in-ground pool and take in the amazing sunsets or take a soak in your spa/hot tub and enjoy the Eastern Shore lifestyle at this spectacular estate home.

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 Chesapeake Bay

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.

I apologize the lateness of this review. We actually stayed in May of 2014. The house was amazing, comfortable, luxurious, huge and well appointed. The owners were gracious and quick to respond to questions. We lounged in the pool. Sat on the dock. Walked the grounds. Played games. Watched tv in the huge media room. Lounged in the pool. Yes I listed that twice as we did it a lot!!!!

House and property is amazing

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 6 retired couples. We had a fantastic time at rhe house. It has everything... dock (we brought 4 kayaks and there are 2 there), heated pool, hot tub, fire pit, great porch overlooking the Elk River, media room with huge TV for movie watching and wonderful large kitchen. Plus many other extras. We didnt have kids with us but there is also a playground, volleyball court and plenty of sports equiptment. We had an amazing time.

Excellent Stay

  • 4 of 5

A family gathering of 13 fit quite comfortably in a lovely house with picturesque grounds. The activity level was high with pool table, pool, volleyball and tether ball but there was plenty of room for those who needed a little quiet time. We experienced a few mechanical problems, but I give Sheri credit - these were addressed promptly

Paradise at The River House!

  • 5 of 5

This was an exsquisite weekend away with girlfriends! Beautiful house, amazing views and sunset, luxurious pool and hot tub, and an excellent host who was easily accessible when needed for questions. Kayaking on the river was breathtaking. I can't say enough about this house except that I can't wait to go back!

A wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The River House with our adult children and their families, so there were 8 adults, 5 kids from 6 - 10, and a 2 1/2 year old. The house, cottage, and grounds were ideal. There was plenty of space for the kids to run around, lots of activities to keep them busy, and enough room to separate the families so no one felt on top of each other. The house is a short drive from shopping and also from a multiplex for a rainy day. It was a great week for everyone.
