About the owner: Gary and Christine Ornoff

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester Courthouse, VA, USA:
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!
