About David and Kimberly Bruce
We are the Bruce Family. David and Kimberly Bruce-the owners of Bruce's Bend. We have 3 children. David was raised just one mile from the property and is very familiar with and loves the area. I was born and raised in New jersey till 1999 when I moved to Virginia. We both love to hike and be outdoors. Our children also love to hike and do all the outdoor activities that we hope you get to enjoy when you visit. We look forward to meeting new people who share the same love of the area.
David and Kimberly Bruce purchased this House in 1999
Why David and Kimberly Bruce chose Fincastle
David grew up just a mile down the road from the property. He had visited this house and knew the prior owners and told them that if they ever wanted to sell to let him know. Fortunately for us, they decided to sell and contacted David about purchasing the house. We love the house and plan on retiring here. We have had to move for a job change at this point and thought why not let others enjoy our home while we cannot.
What makes this House unique
David was in love with the house from the first visit. The view from the couch gave the appearance that the creek flowed directly under the house. We absolutely love the screened in porch. We love sitting on the couch in the screened in porch and have our morning coffee. The house has many great points--firepit, creek view, big side yard, patio area, deck overlooking creek and much more. The screened in structure out front is the origional camp that still remains. It has a fireplace which is a good place to sit back and relax or hangout on a rainy day or evening.

One of the best properties I have stayed at-a great place to get away
The owners were great to deal with. The property is in a very quiet, scenic valley that time seems to have forgotten. The nearby roads are very sparsely traveled and neighbors are not nearby resulting in much privacy. Great riverfront view with wading/boating access to a scenic parcel of the creek across from an island. Most distinctive attribute is a wonderful second story screened in porch. First floor bedroom bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever been on. Kitchen is fully furnished with everything you can think of. Check in/check out, tv, internet instructions /were very organized and easy to find in the three ring binder. Plenty of outdoor activities like Hoop Hole trail, Roaring run trail and other local rivers also for kayaking and fishing-James, Cowpasture and Jackson. You are a little bit away from eateries and grocery stores in Clifton Forge, Covington and New Castle--circa half an hour-so plan accordingly. This adds to the charm of the location though.
Great place !!
Everything you need in a perfect spot on the creek!
The pictures can't show just how amazing this home and property is! We rented the cabin for a weekend fishing trip and were not disappointed. The home itself has every amenity we could have wanted and beyond. The homeowners, David and Kimberly, were attentive and thorough. We really appreciate all of the effort they put in and we would recommend this property to anyone.
The property was beautiful. We loved being on the river. We had a fantastic time.
The property is very secluded and private, but wasn’t difficult to find. We loved being on the water and the fire pit was a plus. The s’mores ingredients left by the homeowners were a nice touch. We had a wonderful time
Beautiful property and house
We loved this place! Kimberly made sure we had everything we could possibly need. The free firewood just made it the best place I have stayed. The river is beautiful and the house was just lovely.
We had a great time! They have lots of activities to do around the house. We visited some good wineries and breweries around the area. If you are particular about pillows or knives I would bring your own. Overall, it was a great experience and the owners were pleasant and helpful. Would book again
