“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!

“Loved The Riverhouse”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had an excellent stay at The Riverhouse. Everything was spotlessly clean and all we needed was provided. We loved watching the river flow by and the birds and the wildlife. It is close to shopping, dining and the historical downtown.

It's great to have the peacefulness of the river and wildlife, yet be so close to Old Town Fredericksburg. It's the best of both worlds! Thanks, and we hope to see you back again soon.

“Serenity Incarnate”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My wife and I were in town for the weekend to do some wine tasting, some good food eating, and for me to do the Cannonball Century (cycling event). All we needed was a nice place to stay to rest our heads between events, what we got was a beautifully quiet respite from our daily lives. The studio apartment is huge, the view is spectacular, and our hosts (Lee & Ruth) while available for anything we might need (which was nothing: everything we need was already in the apartment) allowed us all the privacy we could have asked for. All and all a very warm and comfortable place to stay for those looking for an alternative to the sterility of a hotel. I would recommend this to anyone.

Thanks Tom! The Fredericksburg RiverHouse is definitely NOT like any hotel. We're glad you had some time to enjoy the view and hope to see you back again next year.

“Amazingly unexpected”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

After frantically searching for a place to stay close enough to shop but far enough away from the maddening crowd my friend and I happened upon Riverhouse. The pictures nor description do it justice, it is truly amazing. Lee and Ruth literally welcomed us into their home without us ever feeling anything other than safe, secure, and secluded. We were living in an elegant treehouse for 3 days-or at least that's how it felt. The studio is huge with wonderful full windows for an expansive view of the river just steps away from the shore line. Since it was a girls weekend, we used both the king size bed and the full futon and they were wonderfully comfortable. The arrangement is open and airy with significant privacy and the balcony is perfect for that breath of fresh air. The kitchen was just the right size for quick meals with abundant dinnerware and cutlery. It was in pristine condition and spotless! I especially appreciated the smattering of art decor from what I assumed were the owners adventures. My friend and I both felt we got much more than a place to stay for the weekend-by the second day we were calling it home. What a wonderful experience, made that much better by the inexpensive cost. We could not have imagined how wonderful the stay was going to be. Now every time we do a shopping trip we're going to check with Lee and Ruth first!

Relaxing and watching the river roll slowly past, does make it feel like you are far out in the country but being only minutes from downtown Fredericksburg has its perks! It is also nice to have a short commute to Richmond or the Washington DC area when we want a taste of the big city life. We hope you ladies come back soon, you were marvelous guests!

“Peaceful and idyllic”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is the perfect place to chill. Lee and Ruth made us feel welcome but didn't intrude. I loved all the wildlife we could see from the windows especially with Lee feeding the birds!
They gave us directions into downtown and recommended where to park and eat.

We enjoy feeding all the songbirds that fill the trees here; but it is just as enjoyable watching the Great Blue Heron, Ospreys and Eagles feed themselves on the river. Thank you for your gracious comments and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
