  • Spectacular sunsets

    "A simple, clean cottage with fabulous beds. Serene kayaking on the Ferry Creek and Piankatank River. A bald eagle flew right over me! Sunsets were absolutely gorgeous!"

  • A stunning river retreat, indeed.

    "We love this place so much that we returned for the second time this year! We first went in May and were able to enjoy activities outdoors. I was a little skeptical going during the winter season, but that was very short lived. We had just as much fun, if not more so than our previous visit. The hot tub is always a hit. We absolutely enjoyed the cozy living room where we stayed up late to watch movies. The kitchen is VERY well-equipped - you really don't need to bring any utensils, spices, etc. Added bonus, there is no pet fee! Our 11 year old Cockapoo had a ball. We will definitely be returning next year. Cheryl and Maurice are wonderful to communicate with via email should you have any questions about the place."

  • A Unique Opportunity

    "It is truly a unique opportunity to be able to stay at historic and beautiful Pop Castle. Our family of seven adults and 5 children under age 5 stayed here for a week in June. The first night, as I tucked one of the little grandchildren into her bed, she whispered in my ear, "I love this house". Two months later, back in her hometown, hardly a day goes by when she doesn't talk about the "River House". We were guests in a private home, without the owners hovering nearby! The kitchen was fully stocked with every pot, pan, spice, condiment, basket, bowl, utensil you could possibly need. As a family of cooks, we found there was everything we needed to create a feast or a picnic. Here's a rundown of all that we did and used on-site, in one week's stay: kayaked, cooked oysters out on grill, played croquet, swung from tree swing, caught crabs in pot off of dock, watched fireworks on July 4 from the dock, played games and cards, read, swam in river, dug in sand, played ball on the thick, lush lawn, walked, rode bikes, cooked out 3 lb. sirloin steak which we bought at market 5 min. from house, basketball, ping pong, drinks every evening under the huge oak trees, watched sunrises and sunsets, heard the rain on the roof, lived on the screened porch, watched movies, used instant and fast wifi, walked 2-3 miles safely on private roads, fished, played with doll house in kids' room, puzzles, ate well and slept soundly. The history of the house is fascinating and I highly recommend that you read everything you can find onsite about the house and property; let your imagination run free. While the house is old, it is beautifully restored, furnished, landscaped and well maintained. Bring very little as the property has everything you'll need, including hundreds of books and games for adults and children. The three villages of White Stone, Kilmarnock and Irvington are 5-20 min. drive and offer groceries, gas, propane, butcher, market, shops, and restaurants, but we didn't want to leave the property. As a change of pace, one family with kids found the nearby schools and churchyards that had climbing and swinging apparatus and took off for those a few mornings. Granddad, son and 5 yr. old grandson rented a fishing boat with captain and enjoyed a successful fishing expedition. The owner is responsive, personable, and thoughtful. I can testify to a fantastic family vacation and wholeheartedly recommend Pop Castle for any reunion, wedding, party, or family vacation."

  • Wonderful place!

    "We had a wonderful week at this Deltaville retreat house! The setting was private and serene, while still being minutes to the grocery store and farm stand. The house had everything we wanted, including 2 kayaks to play with and enough water at the dock for our own 2 boats. Moore's Creek is lovely, and has easy access to the Piankatank River. The house's kitchen is well stocked with good quality utensils, and the provided linens and towels were very nice. The house is very comfortable for two couples. We spent most of our time on the deck, overlooking (or out on) the Creek, but the living room is a cozy, comfortable place to read, talk, or watch movies. The dock is not a good place to swim, but the bird watching is fantastic! We hope to return to this house."
