“Relaxed interlude at the Riverhouse”
Reviewed 2 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Can't say enough good things about this wonderful property overlooking the Rappahannock River. Clean, quiet, with every convenience of home, we enjoyed a very special stay in our suite on the top floor of this home. Air conditioned comfort is available, but it was great to simply turn on the overhead fans and open the screened windows, and watch/listen for the squirrels, raccoons, and every kind of bird in the trees nearby. Fireflies and the frog's river songs lull you to sleep at night. Would return to the Riverhouse in a heartbeat!!!

After living here for many years, we still love to open the doors and windows and enjoy the sounds of nature. We are very fortunate to be this close to Old Town Fredericksburg and still enjoy nature's tranquility.

“Closest thing to a treehouse overlooking River, and spacious too!”

This rental was the BEST lodging we have experienced so far! It is the entire top floor of a three story clapboard house that sits directly on the Riverbank not far from Fredericksburg. Yes, you need to climb two sets of stairs to get up there, but if your legs work, it is well worth it and you won't be disappointed. The entire back wall are windows with a little balcony. It feels like you are up in the treetops just gazing down on the river below. King sized bed is VERY comfortable. Full kitchen, fridge, micro and a little eating area. Futon couch, TV and the SPACE! Lots of it! Bring your own food though. No breakfast served here.

Liked best: Location, spaciousness of the loft, and the VIEW!
Liked least: We've stayed places where a little treat basket or something to nibble on was waiting on our arrival. That would have been the cherry on top of this fabulous experience.

Thanks David, we often think of it as a tree-house as well. It's a great place to watch the river roll slowly by and see the blue herons, eagles, ospreys and a multitude of songbirds go through their daily rituals. Even during the winter there is life to view on the river.

“don't miss this view!”

This apartment near historical Fredericksburg was great. The apartment was so comfortable and welcoming. The view was addictive! I hated to leave in the morning (even though we were there for sightseeing). Even in the middle of the night I stood at the wall of windows enjoying the glimmering river view. I was disappointed when we didn't get home in the afternoon before dark; I heard that there are awesome sunsets. The morning we left, the owners asked if we had seen the pair of eagles -- missed them. I'd love to back. The RiverHouse is centrally located for so much sightseeing!

Thank you for the kind words. It's hard to believe all the wildlife the river attracts. Yesterday, I watched as two Blue Jays dive-bombed a two-foot tall Barred Owl! The owl wasn't bothered in the least. We hope to see you back soon.

Watching the river roll slowly past and the sun drop silently below the horizon are two of my favorite activities here at the RiverHouse but I must say, canoeing on the river is my #1! We do look forward to seeing you every Spring, you are great guests.
