About Lee & Ruth Stone
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 over 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 Lee & Ruth Stone 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. We are only three miles from Old Downtown Fredericksburg which offers many different eatery venues and shopping opportunities. Fredericksburg is full of historical sights and offers nightlife as well. We have canoes and kayaks available for exploring the river and you can swim from our private bank. The bird-watching from the RiverHouse is awesome!
What makes this Apartment unique
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.

We really enjoyed our few days at the river house. So many windows and beautiful birds to look at. The bed was so comfy and we slept so good. We look forward to our return.
Beautiful location overlooking the river. Third floor apartment with all the amenities. Just as advertised. Clean and quiet. Hosts were very accommodating and helpful. Would highly recommend!
Just what I needed ... a beautiful place to write and relax. The apartment is comfortable and overlooks the river. The owners are kind and gracious.
River house stay in Fredericksburg, VA
Outstanding studio nestled next to the river and in a quiet neighborhood provided restful evenings to end busy days visiting family and seeing the sites. The balcony has treetop views for birdwatching.
Still a great place to stay
This was our sixth time staying at the Riverhouse in Fredericksburg. The hosts are great people who have become more than just people we say hello and good bye to. We hope to return to the house and to visit with Lee & Ruth for years to come.
Beautiful space with everything you need
This property is absolutely beautiful! Walking up the stairs and into the living room area with all the windows and a gorgeous view of the river took my breath away.
Though the space is a single room, it is sectioned off very well. I spent most of my time on the porch watching the birds and enjoying the view.
The kitchen had all of the essentials. The bathroom having a shampoo/conditioner/body wash dispenser was a nice touch. The bed was heavenly. The space was immaculately clean. The owners thought of everything to include a step to get up onto the high bed. Not having to take the trash out at the end of the stay was wonderful. Just made departure very simple.
It is a shared entrance situation but the main home is separated very well and I barely ran into the owners at all. I felt that I had complete privacy. There are 2 full flights of stairs up to the space so, if that is a physical limitation for you, this could be challenging.
I would absolutely stay here again!
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.
