Welcome to Rivah Country

- a boater's paradise of beautiful waters, miles of coastline with deep water creeks offering sheltered harbor, and a full range of marine services. This is also a region of gently rolling farmland, horse farms, scenic drives, fields of daffodils and buttercups, and forests of wild turkeys. It's a genealogist's paradise as well, with historic courthouse towns holding some of the country's earliest records. We're within reach of Williamsburg and Richmond but away from their congestion, and with lots of our own amusements to offer. Come sail the rivers and the Chesapeake Bay, book a fishing charter, tour antique shops, golf, kayak, feast on local crab. Enjoy the mix of old and new - 18th century churches and courthouse towns, stylish shops and waterfront condos. Most of all, enjoy the unprententious charm of an area that hasn't been overcommercialized.
