Carters Creek - All Shapes, All Sizes

Carter’s Creek, in Virginia’s Northern Neck, is perhaps best known as the home of the Tides Inn resort, but 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.
