“Private oasis in the tree tops!”
Reviewed 9 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at River House. Lee & Ruth provided EVERYTHING we needed for a comfortable & relaxing stay. The amenities we appreciated the most were the many floor-to-ceiling windows which let in plenty of light with spectacular views of the river and tree-top wildlife. The most comfortable bed EVER! Very clean and very private. Secluded and yet convenient to area restaurants and shopping. We had fun exploring the many antique shops in the area. We look forward to staying at the River House again in the future. Thank you Lee & Ruth for sharing such a refreshing hideaway to unwind.

“The Perfect Peaceful Couples Escape”
Reviewed 23 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The winter we made our second visit to the Riverhouse, and it was just as lovely as our first two years ago. The panoramic winter view of the riverbank through an endless wall of glass is both peaceful and inspiring, and makes even a dark or rainy day into a thing of beauty. Lee and Ruth are thoughtful, attentive hosts, and provide everything necessary for a brief or extended stay in their studio. The rental is a short drive from the bustle of Fredericksburg, yet provides a sense of privacy and isolation unparalleled by any other place we've stayed. The kitchen is outfitted with everything needed to cook for two, and the studio is clean and spacious. We enjoyed the new vegan restaurant in Fredericksburg, walked the canal path through the town, and sampled the historical sights. And then returned to enjoy our books on the comfortable couch with a spectacular view, and wish vacation never had to end.

Thank you for the kind words. We find that each season holds its own beauty and the view of the river is beautiful during all four of them. You are great guests and we thank you for choosing the RiverHouse for a second visit. We look forward to seeing you again!

“Perfect way to start our trip”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We added a 4 night stay at the RiverHouse on the front of our trip. Hoping for a quiet place to unplug and relax before enjoying the rest of our vacation. RiverHouse could not have been more perfect. We had the top floor "highly recommended". It was spacious, large and comfortable with a wall fulll of windows to the west. It feels like a true treehouse. Watching the sun set thru the trees is very nice. Spent some mornings and evenings on the deck watching birds and the river wildlife. Bed was super comfortable. We did spend a couple days in DC. The VRE train station is a short 4 minute drive away. Easy and convenient.

All & all, certainly would return and recommend to others.

Thanks Ron. It is wonderful waking up each day surrounded by nature but with town only minutes away; we think the best of two worlds. So glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you back again. You were great guests!

“Beautiful Meditation”
Reviewed 8 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The RiverHouse is exquisitely beautiful, uniquely serene and impeccably
managed. It was the perfect beginning and end to each day in
Fredericksburg. Lee and Ruth are very kind and accommodating, and the
location is within minutes of downtown with any amenity close by. I fully
intend to visit the property again, when I think the autumn color may take
my breath away. Thank you, Lee & Ruth, for your very healing home.

Thank you for your kind words, Jacqueline. Everyday I think to myself how fortunate we are to enjoy such a wonderful natural setting. It's great to experience life on the river during the warm months but as you've suggested, the river surroundings vary with each season. As the scenery changes throughout the year, it is always very special in its own way.

“Fredericksburg Delight”
Reviewed 3 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Spent a month at this spacious, and inviting studio, a peaceful respite.The wall of windows lends a feeling of airiness and being one with nature. Watching the historic Rappahannock and the traffic jam of birds at the feeders outside our windows was delightful.
Well equipped, nicely furnished with an especially comfortable bed. This is the perfect place to spend any amount of time, but, to us, it felt like coming home at the end of full days spent sight seeing etc. Lee and Ruth were attentive and gracious, the quintessential hosts!

Thank you Lynne! We love to watch the great variety of birds that come through our happy treehouse. I was very happy that you were able to see the eagle and the pileated woodpecker! You were divine guests and I certainly enjoyed my occasional conversations with both you and Giles. We hope to see you again sometime soon. The month went so quickly!
