on Virginia's Southern Chesapeake Bay
An avenue of towering red maples serves as your welcoming committee to North River, an historic Virginia bed-and-breakfast and vacation retreat. Standing tall and stately, these silent sentinels guide you up the lane to the place you'll call home during your stay.
