I am located in Norfolk proper, on the Lafayette River. Parking is in the driveway. The drive is narrow, but opens up at the garage giving a very comfortable parking spot for a class B or small trailer (but be sure your backing skills are up to it!). If backed in, the drivers side faces the neighbor's back yard. The passenger side opens up to behind my house with a very nice view of the Lafayette River. You are welcome to launch a kayak, but will need to be mindful of the tides. There is no water at low tide. Suggested Local Attractions:Norfolk has a lot of history. Many attractions are a short bike ride away. Several breweries within biking distance. About 20 minutes from Ocean View Beach, 45 minutes to Virginia Beach. Norfolk has lots of water and interesting places to launch a kayak. If you watch the tide you can put in at the house and paddle to supper or to have a drink. Williamsburg about an hour away.

No smoking. No children. No generators. No pets. Feel free to enjoy the yard and river.
Access Road Conditions: Access is through a city neighborhood. Drive is on a cul-de-sac, so there is plenty of turning/backing radius into the driveway. This is a single driveway which flares in front of the garage for open parking space. If pulling a small trailer, make sure your backing skills are up to it. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Street parking is available. Access is via a narrow drive only suitable for a class B or a small trailer.

15 amp plug access. Could launch a kayak or canoe from the property...we didn't... beautiful back yard with flowers. Careful backing down the driveway...it is narrow, had to put one wheel off the driveway into the grass to avoid curb and plants on other side of driveway. Owner was very nice. Would stay again sometime.

We were sorry we did not get a chance to meet our host. But enjoyed the beautiful setting right on the water. Quiet neighborhood we would stay again.

Katy greeted me and helped me back in to a spot with beautiful view of the river. She encouraged me to take advantage of the Adirondack chairs and enjoy the view. Hope to visit again someday. Thank you!
