Carters Creek, in Virginia’s Northern Neck, is perhaps best known as the home of the Tides Inn resort, but in fact its history goes way back. Since the early 18th century when Robert “King” Carter ruled the area, the creek has lapped peacefully in the shadows of stately houses. Most recently, its sloping shorelines and secluded branches have inspired a variety of “river house retreats” along its banks, many of them architectural gems of widely differing styles.

The style provides the allure of times past, yet embraces innovative elements of today’s lifestyle – an inspired river retreat that is an ideal gathering place.
