About Lee & Ruth Stone

We have lived in the Fredericksburg area since 1995. We raised our five sons here and enjoyed many of our summer days playing on the river. Ruth graduated from the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond and has worked as a home health nurse for 25 years. She now works for a local home health agency. Lee retired as an officer after 23 years with the U.S. Coast Guard. He has his masters degree and works as a Systems Engineer. We enjoy traveling, meeting people and learning about their lives.

Why Lee & Ruth Stone chose Fredericksburg

Our Riverhouse is a unique property on the Rappahannock River due to the proximity to the water, nature and to downtown Fredericksburg. When we purchased this home years ago we did so with the intention of sharing its beauty and an appreciation of the river with others.

What makes this apartment unique

A wall full of floor-to-ceiling windows and a private balcony overlooking the Rappahannock River; a beautiful private space and easy access to downtown Fredericksburg.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Imagine nice pictures of the RiverHouse, then deciding to stay there, then moving in late at night. . . and the next morning: YOU DON'T TRUST YOUR EYES!

Reality is by far beating the pictures and you're forgetting to shut your mouth again. Not to mention that the snow covered everything outside (how did Lee & Ruth manage this?). From a guest's view, it was their best idea to offer the RiverHouse's studio for holidays & vacation. We enjoyed nine wonderful days being inspired every morning by what we saw outside while having our breakfast.

Lee & Ruth were very fast in answering our inquiries. For example, we arranged a late arrival without any problems. They were very helpful, warm & kind. As a nice surprise, we were welcomed with some fruits & a tasty red wine (thanks so much!). The studio not only has this stunning view, it also has everything you need and a certain personal touch because of the nice pictures on the wall & other stuff leading to...well, feeling like at home. By the way, it's also very close to downtown (a must see!). We hope to be returning soon & thank you very much, Lee & Ruth, for the hospitality.

Serenity Now

  • 5 of 5
We reserved this place in early Spring but had no idea where it was or what to expect. When we arrived, our wonderful hosts greeted us and immediately made us feel at home. They were as great as the living space is.
The views from the loft space on the top floor of the home are exquisite. You can sit inside or out and take in the 180-degree view of the Rappahannock River as it wends its way past the house. You're surrounded by trees, birds, and rustling leaves...and that's about it. Although there are neighbors at some distance, you never see them or hear them.
The bed is big and comfortable, the whole place feels nice and modern, and if you need anything at all (the hosts even lent us their Ninja food processor for the week), Lee and Ruth are happy to provide.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words Rick. We try to make everyone feel like they belong. Thanks to your feedback, we have now placed the studio on its own network. The throughput has increased substantially. We look forward to seeing next year.

Wet,enjoyable,and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful find. The river house was wonderful and relaxing after days of touring the area. The river was flooded due to the massive rains this season, but we had the joy of watching the river from the tree tops. The studio had everything we needed along with great hosts. Hope to return someday. Would recommend to anyone wanting to get away to relax.

Perfect VA vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to call "home" while commemorating the 150th anniversaries of The Battle of the Wilderness and Spotsylvania. This beautiful, peaceful place on the river was the perfect spot to return to each night to reflect on all that happened on this land during May, 1864.

Thanks for providing such an awesome accommodation to weary travelers!

Best always,

Couldn't ask for a better place to stay

The views were spectacular, the room was comfortable and beautiful. The location is convenient to everything and yet you feel like you are a world away. We woke up to hear the birds singing each morning and watched the sun set over the Rappahannock each night! The kitchen had everything we needed for making breakfast in the room. I hope to come back again when we have more time to relax and enjoy our stay! The owners have truly made an ideal getaway for anyone who wants to relax!

Car: recommended

Our rental property is located in southern Stafford County on the tidal section of the pristine Rappahannock River which is designated a state scenic river. The water here is flat and tranquil. The home is in a peaceful park-like setting. Bald eagles, great blue herons, hawks, ospreys, kingfishers, woodpeckers, owls, finches, ducks and more thrive here. The property has easy water access. Canoes, kayaks and life-vests are available to enjoy the river. You can even paddle to downtown Fredericksburg (which takes about 45 minutes), dock the boat at the riverside park and stroll to lunch at a nearby restaurant. It's a 5 minute drive by car to historic downtown Fredericksburg where there are numerous shops, restaurants, galleries, national parks and historic homes to explore. The Fredericksburg area features much American history with numerous civil war battlefields and cemeteries available to tour. Today, Fredericksburg is a vibrant community with an active art scene involving crafts, music and the performing arts. There are public golf courses, museums, local wineries and many other enjoyable activities.
