If you are in the area I would strongly recommend using Gary and his wife's home. Clean, polite, friendly environment for a small or large group. Thanks guys me and my wife appreciate your efforts.

Gary and Nani's house is incredibly beautiful, and you can't beat the property - the river is gorgeous, and they have many opportunities to take advantage of the outdoor space. Nani cooked us wonderful Korean food both nights of our stay; they truly went above and beyond to provide a welcoming environment. Never thought we'd come to the area again, but we might just to be able to stay at this house again.

This was a wonderful home to stay in. Everything was beautiful, and the hosts were so nice and friendly. My favorite moment was seeing the fog over the water in the morning and seeing two eagles fishing right near the dock.

Gary and Nani are amazing hosts. They are so caring and dedicated to making sure you have a great stay. The house and property are spotless and beautiful. We ended up not doing many activities around the area (of which there are many) because we felt so comfortable at their home. I strongly recommend getting a bottle of wine from randolphs and just hanging out on the pier for a while. There is an eagle nest in the vicinity and we were lucky enough to see her while we were there. Gary said the eagle hangs out on their pier from time to time. There were several other guests there at the same time we were, and it was very enjoyable to all come together at the end of the day and have a group discussion. I highly recommend Gary and Nani. Thank you for everything!

I loved staying with Gary for the weekend. My room was huge with a magnificent view of the James River. I would absolutely stay with Gary again when I am back in the area.
