The space
This home is located on a private point of land with water on three sides. There are water views from all rooms in the home. The property includes 16 acres surrounded by rural farmland, water and woods. Wildlife include deer, ducks, ospeys, and bald eagles. Rivahhome is perfect for a quiet family retreat, romantic weekend, reunion or nature lovers adventure.

There are many shops, restaurants and boutiques in the town of Kilmarnock which is just minutes away. Also there are many seasonal events that take place in the area. Several golf courses and wineries are local.

Two paddle boards [SUPs] and three kayaks are provided. These are recreational kayaks. If you would like to bring a sea kayak, fishing kayak, etc. there is plenty of space to park between outings.

Reedville is a unique town, with numerous restaurants and a Fishermen’s Museum. The town is featured in Sea Kayaking Virginia: A Paddler's Guide to Day Trips [in our kayaking library]

The 316-acre Dameron Marsh Natural Area Preserve is one in a series of protected lands that line the western and eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia. This preserve contains one of the most significant wetlands on the Chesapeake Bay for marsh-bird communities.

PFDs [life jackets], paddles, etc. are provided.

Kayak Kits are also provided, which include:
Bottled water [unlimited, and more in basement if needed].
First aid kit

There is also a library of kayak books at the Rivah Home. These include three Basic Kayaking books, two Sea Kayaking books, one Sea Kayak Rescue book, one Kayak Navigation book and "Sea Kayaking Virginia: A Paddler's Guide to Day Trips".

Kayak fishing has become very popular, especially bass fishing [rockfish] in the Northern Neck and Chesapeake Bay areas. Our kayaking book collection includes four books on kayak fishing. General kayak fishing information is covered in "The Complete Kayak Fisherman", "Sportsman’s Best: Kayak Fishing Book", and" Kayak Fishing: The Ultimate Guide 2nd Edition".

Chad Hoover’s book “Kayak Bass Fishing” has detailed information on bass fishing in the mid-Atlantic area. Chad is the former president of the Tidewater Kayak Angler Association.
