Car: Recommended

Our rental property is located in southern Stafford County on the tidal section of the pristine Rappahannock River which is designated a state scenic river. The water here is flat and tranquil. The home is in a peaceful park-like setting. Bald eagles, great blue herons, hawks, ospreys, kingfishers, woodpeckers, owls, finches, ducks and more thrive here. The property has easy water access. Canoes, kayaks and life-vests are available to enjoy the river. You can even paddle to downtown Fredericksburg (which takes about 45 minutes), dock the boat at the riverside park and stroll to lunch at a nearby restaurant. It's a 5 minute drive by car to historic downtown Fredericksburg where there are numerous shops, restaurants, galleries, national parks and historic homes to explore. The Fredericksburg area features much American history with numerous civil war battlefields and cemeteries available to tour. Today, Fredericksburg is a vibrant community with an active art scene involving crafts, music and the performing arts. There are public golf courses, museums, local wineries and many other enjoyable activities.

 

Owner info

About the owner: We have lived in the Fredericksburg area since 1995. We raised our five sons here and enjoyed many of our summer days playing on the river. Ruth graduated from the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond and has worked as a home health nurse for 25 years. She now works for a local home health agency. Lee retired as an officer after 23 years with the U.S. Coast Guard. He has his masters degree and works as a Systems Engineer. We enjoy traveling, meeting people and learning about their lives.

Why the Owner Chose Fredericksburg:
Our Riverhouse is a unique property on the Rappahannock River due to the proximity to the water, nature and to downtown Fredericksburg. When we purchased this home years ago we did so with the intention of sharing its beauty and an appreciation of the river with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
A wall full of floor-to-ceiling windows and a private balcony overlooking the Rappahannock River; a beautiful private space and easy access to downtown Fredericksburg.
