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 Eagle Rock

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.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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

Lovely, remote property which is far nicer than the photos convey.

  • 5 of 5

This is a well built home with comfortable indoor and outdoor accommodations. The outdoor fire pit and indoor fireplace added to the experience. Regretted not taking the kayaks out for a spin on Craig Creek. It is remote, but that is part of its charm. Absolutely loved this place and the owners were very easy to work with.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

All was perfect! The location was tucked away and right on a great creek. The house was so cozy and comfortable and well-equipped with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen! The s’mores provided were a nice touch and we enjoyed the outdoor firepit.
