Riverfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
Fifty feet from the Rappahannock River sits the historic farm home built in 1917 by local renowned boat builder Gilbert White. Just updated with all of the modern amenities, it is the ideal home to relax and enjoy the Rivah Life with friends and family.
Sitting on a large quiet cove at the mouth of the Rappahannock and Chesapeake, you can avail yourself of the crabbing, fishing and wildlife viewing that is literally at your doorstep. With a personal beach and dock, you can bring your power boat to tie up all week or rent one from our local rental companies. We provide two kayaks, along with life jackets of various sizes as well as a 12 ft long floating mat to enjoy. Crab trap, fishing pole and oyster rake are available to try your luck at catching dinner.

This home offers 4 bedrooms, two of which are joined as a suite. With 2,100 square feet, living room, sunroom, and two full baths, it is an ideal size for two families to share, perhaps with grand parents along staying in the first floor queen size bedroom. The kitchen has all the amenities, including dishwasher, gas stove, microwave and lots of extras that make cooking for a group easier. We have high-speed wifi, central air/heat, deck, jacuzzi and gazebo with great views of the water.

Little Oyster is available for Sat-Sat rentals through early September, with a minimum 7-day stay. We are a strict no smoking home, and we're sorry but we're not allowing pets.

Little Oyster is located on Fleets Island, just minutes from White Stone, Irvington, and Kilmarnock. Enjoy the local wineries, take the family to the Compass Entertainment Center for a round of putt-putt golf and a movie, go antiquing at the many shops in the area, and dine out at fantastic restaurants, including the famous Tides Inn. Or plan a day of history - you can be in Yorktown in an hour and Williamsburg in 1-1/2 hours.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to enjoy a week living the "Rivah Life" down here in the Northern Neck.

NEW for 2022: We listened to our wonderful guests and added a washer & dryer! Follow us on Instagram @littleoysterriverhouse

Family memories made
From start to finish our family vacation this year was absolutely amazing. Michael was an amazing host and always responded to questions quickly. He also let us know that we could check in earlier than planned because the house was ready! The house was perfect for my family. The restored house was perfect and cozy. We explored the waters, caught crabs in the crab traps, enjoyed watching the sea life (jellyfish and sting ray), fished, floated, kayaked, played lawn games, enjoyed morning coffee in the gazebo and night time soaks in the hot tub. We cooked amazing meals in the well stocked kitchen and enjoyed games with the family on the sun porch in the evenings. We had camp fires and the kids enjoyed late night movies in the family room. Beds were comfortable and the house was nicely cooled by central air and added window ac units. We were sad our vacation had to end....but have so many amazing memories! Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home! Megan

Beautiful peaceful location. Upstairs tub didn’t drain. A lot of bugs everywhere! Very well stocked kitchen. Yellow Kayak was missing plugs and took on water. Great crabbing! Lots of kid items in home which aren’t listed like a porta crib, high chair and life jackets.

Northern Neck Nirvana!
This is a lovely property inside and out. We were a group of seven family and friends with ages ranging from 21 to 76 who vacation together yearly and everyone voted this their favorite trip and property. The water views are stunning (and can be enjoyed from almost all of the house) and the yard is lovely with wonderful "old-fashioned" southern landscaping that included gardenias and hydrangeas. A nice long dock and plenty of water activities for everyone. Lots of fun eateries around plus a fully stocked kitchen for preparing and enjoying the incredible local seafood available. Definitely a little slice of heaven on the "rivah".
