About Gary Ornoff

Gary and Christine Ornoff

Gary Ornoff purchased this house in 2006

Why Gary Ornoff chose Gloucester

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!

SUPER RELAXING!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 4 of 5

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.

Perfect getaway close to the water

  • 4 of 5

Each year our group of college friends gather for a weekemdcof catching up. This house was perfect! There was lots of space, including a separate tv room for the guys to watch the hockey finals! While not right on the river, it's just across the street with easy access and neighbors who share their part of the beach. We saw a bald eagle soaring along the water and an osprey family with a new chick! Beds were comfortable enough for just two nights. Bring ice and enjoy getting off the Internet for a while. We sure did!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review for our property! I wish the sky's were clear but sometimes we all need some time to unplug and relax with the family and sounds like that was what the doctor ordered:):)

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent Easter weekend 2017 at The River House and had an amazing time. The house is perfectly located right across the street from the river with wonderful views and access. We were traveling with 6 adults and had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the house. The canoe and kayaks were perfect since we could all head out on the water! The house has all the essentials and worked perfect for a weekend getaway. The neighbors were very friendly and let us use there beach to launch our kayaks from and even offered us some free range eggs (I did see the review of the rooster but we didn't see or here it so it may have been removed). The only small complaint we would have is the beds were not very comfortable and should probably be replaced but it looks like this is in the plans for this year. This is a great house for the price and I would encourage everyone to stay here.
