Reunions and Business Retreat to North River in Gloucester County, Virginia
North River is the ideal setting for family reunions, as well as for small groups holding meetings and workshops. Our unique lay-out, with meeting rooms in one house and accommodations spread across three houses, provides a combination of settings for group activity as well as for solitude. Whether you’re toasting reunited families and friends at dinner, discussing ideas, practicing yoga, or putting together scrapbooks, our setting will facilitate your experience. Wireless internet, fax, and telephones stand at the ready, as does our personal chef and our fully outfitted kitchen. The handsome sitting-room with wood-burning fireplace serves as an adjunct meeting and “breakout” room to the primary conference room. North River offers several miles of quiet walks for conversation and discussion — along the shore . . . down our country lanes . . . to our rare 18th century ice-house . . . inside our 18th century walled garden, a full acre-square. Come and let the magic of this setting work its charm on you, your families, and friends.
At North River, we especially encourage artists to come and practice their medium! Whether you are a writer, a painter, a musician, come solo or bring a group of your fellows. The large meeting room in Creek House has excellent acoustics for groups rehearsing. Our several miles of shoreline, our pastures, orchard, meadows and woodland all provide stunning spaces for landscape painting, or for the writer taking a walk. If you are a group of artists, please contact us so we can help you plan a productive visit to our fairytale setting.
