About Gary Ornoff
Gary and Christine Ornoff
Gary Ornoff purchased this House in 2006
Why Gary Ornoff chose Pine Top
We fell in love with this house on a new years day drive in 2006! We thought we were going to see a small home in need of repair but instead we saw a wonderful place that has a personality all its own! Something about being away from the City lights really can do wonders for the soul! We have enjoyed the River House for several years now and hope you find it as relaxing as our family does!

Big home plenty of space. I hate to be crucial over small things!
Let me start with this… for the money it’s a good deal. With that said if small things were improved we would have had a better stay. Attention to details matter to me. A lot of the blinds were either broke or do not function, light bulbs in bathrooms, bed room burned out. Luckily I found some bulbs. Kitchen wares need to be replaced: old or not functional. Trash was a concern. We were down for a wedding and were packed up pretty good in the car. We were scheduled to leave on a Sunday. We didn’t know how we were going to take care of the trash because no trash pickup… directions were left to the dump but were closed on Sunday. I would imagine your cleaning company would take care of this.. beings no trash pickup. Communication was clear, and Gary was very responsive. Thanks for allowing us to use your home.
Perfect weekend retreat!
We had a fantastic weekend at the River House. We were amazed at the size of the house. The photos don't do it justice. We enjoyed the private beach and kayaking around the river. Our dog had an amazing time exploring the surrounding area. We also enjoyed a trip to Main Street, Gloucester visiting the quaint shops on a rainy day. Ware Neck Produce had some amazing fresh shrimp which we cooked in the large kitchen. Plenty of cooking utensils to cook a banquet if you wished. We also appreciated all the games, DVDs etc. The house is so well stocked. We'll need to go back to enjoy it all as we ran out of time. A week here would be great. Thanks for a great stay. We'll be back!
Thank you so much for sharing this with the community! We love the house, it’s charm, location, and amenities!
It’s a great feeling to be able to share this relaxing house and make memories!
Great place for family getaway
We really enjoyed our stay at this home. We've been to many other vacation rentals and I was very happy with how laid back this one felt. Not only in location and amenities but also in how it was working with Gary on details. Our kids really loved the boats and it was so nice to be able to get out there first thing in the morning!! We also explored a bit and were sent to Haven Beach outside of Mathews. Super secluded and clean beach we enjoyed before the tide took our spot away. Lol
We'd be happy to return in the future!
Awesome property and location. Cant wait to visit again.
I just want to say this has been the best two days I've had in a very long time. I've had time to actually relax with the kids and find time to fish and crab. I feel rechargered. Can't wait to come back. Next time it'll be a longer stay
The house is really clean and spacious. The river is right across the street and was clean as well.
We loved the proximity to the private beach. The neighbors are super nice and helpful. The house had everything we needed. We brought our own kayak and paddle board and definitely got good use of them on the river as it isn't too crowded with bigger boats.
Thanks so much! We hope you get a chance to stay with us again soon.
I appreciate you taking the time to write a review!
All the best to you and yours!
