Tipsy Mermaid “Rivah House” Kayak/Paddlebaord/Crabbing/Fishing

Riverfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
We want to share our little slice of heaven with you on the Northern Neck. The house sits on almost 4 acres on an inlet just off the Corrotoman and Rappahanock Rivers. Bring your boat and dock it at our deep water dock. You can also rent a boat just around the corner at Yankee Point Marina. This peaceful house is perfect for fishing, crabbing, kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, swimming, or just taking a break from city life. We have lots of toys for you to enjoy with the house.
The house has 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths. Three of the bedrooms and two full bathrooms are located upstairs and the additional bedroom and bathroom are located in the basement. There is also a 2 car garage where we store the toys. We have 1 paddleboard, 2 children's kayak, 1 adult kayak, and a water mat that can be used with the rental of the house. Most of the rooms have multiple beds that make it convenient for families with kids. Enjoy having your breakfast on the huge screened in porch or enjoy a glass of wine on the dock as you fish. Take a kayak out in the morning and you might even see a dophin or two or our Heron who lives in our inlet.
The Location of the house is perfect for quiet evenings at home by the firepit or a quick ride to nearby towns. The house is only a 20 minute drive to the town of Kilmarnock and White Stone, Va. Both have quaint shops and restaurants and a few wineries nearby. You can also visit the beautiful Tides Inn hotel by car or take your boat from the house for lunch or dinner. Visit Belle Isle state park and enjoy 7 miles of beaches and explore their trails and wetlands which is only 10 minutes from the house. You can also order food from Ellen's Country store (3 milles) or head to The Oaks restaurant which is a 10 minute drive from the house.

We hope you enjoy the house as much as we have. We have decorated the house with bright and happy colors to make it feel like a vacation. Let the fun and memorable times begin.

Relaxing & Tranquil
It was a beautiful drive getting there & was easy to find. This time of year made it quiet & very relaxing, I'm sure in the peak season there's definitely more noise & boat traffic. There's only 3 houses on this particular road so it seemed more secluded & very minimal traffic so ideal if you have a pet. We took Francesca's advice & went out to eat at The Oaks. A little hole in the wall restaurant with the absolute BEST staff and delicious food! The ribeye literally took up 3/4 of my plate & the homemade croutons are to die for (we actually got some to go). The only issues with the home itself was that there was only a half of roll of toilet paper in each bathroom, no hand soap & a bunch of empty bottle in the shower (we didn't know if we should throw them away so we left them). Also, I didn't realize from the description that one of the bedrooms is actually off of the master so accessed by walking through the master or the sliding glass door leading to the sunroom. Since it was a bunch of us ladies, not a big deal, but would've been weird if it was a couples trip. Francesca is absolutely AMAZING & we would definitely go back! THANK YOU!! :)

This was a family trip. We loved the location, quietness, and the beauty we were surrounded by. We will definitely keep this house on our list.

Pretty Views
Property needs to be cleaned from top to bottom. Kitchen not well stocked. Common areas were spacious. Very quiet nice area. Cell phone reception not great. Wifi was fair. Sheets, towels (worn), soaps and shampoo a plus. Owner was very responsive to our needs. AC went out and they were right on it. The furniture was comfortable. Beds were comfortable. Saw a pair of eagles, many osprey on our kayak trips. Some saw some dolphins. It would be a great place to rent/have a boat.

First, the house itself was clean and well decorated. The yard was huge and allowed for plenty of room for fun and games. The water had jellyfish, so we opted not to swim. The kitchen could use more cook/bakeware as well as more cooking utensils. The unfortunate part is that we attempted contact a few times with the owner during our week stay regarding some issues/concerns, and we never heard anything back.

Nice house for families
We loved that this house had so many sleeping options. And the sun porch was great for evening board games.
