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.

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful place for an Anniversary long weekend and it was absolutely outstanding! I've read other people remark on having to climb 2 flights of stairs...but the view is so worth it! Half of the sides and the whole front is glass that looks out on an amazing view of the river and you can watch it from the tree tops. Although it is very close to old town, once you turn back the lane you are in a secluded oasis. The place was spotless, the amenities well thought out, and returning at night was like coming home! You've got to try this place. You won't regret it.

Gem on the river

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the River House at the end of a 2 week vacation in DC and Virginia. We've stayed in many VRBO rentals around the country and this is in the top 3. So relaxing and comfortable and we couldn't get enough of the stunning view of the Rappahannock River. The pictures on this site are accurate, but being there and watching the river swirls and currents, birds, sunsets, and trees was so much better! I took so many pictures! The kitchen had everything we needed to eat in, the place was immaculate, comfortable furniture and king bed, wi-fi, great TV, spacious, and a nice bathroom. The owners are great: very friendly and helpful yet not in the least intrusive. You are on the top floor of their home, but the apartment is very private and quiet. We would highly recommend this apartment to any couple staying in Fredericksburg, and would definitely stay there again.

Must See To Appreciate

  • 5 of 5
Wrapping up a seven day visit to the River House. This has to be one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. The view of the river is unbelievable. The floor to ceiling windows give you an unobstructed view from one bend in the river to the other. Waking up in the morning in the king size bed and seeing the river view is the perfect way to start your day. The loft is well furnished and provides you with everything you may need for your stay. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal if you choose to do so. Fredericksburg is a great location for sightseeing. The city is beautiful filled with many fantastic shops and eateries. The Blue Ridge Mountains and Washington DC are a short drive away. Ruth, Lee, and Chris were the perfect hosts providing us with whatever we needed. I would highly recommend the River House to anyone that is considering a visit to this area of Virginia.

ZBest Getaway in VA

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the pleasure to stay at the Riverview house in July. This place is just zbest and Lee & Ruth are the most gracious hosts. The floor to ceiling windows provide an amazing view of the river. The apartment loft is kept very clean and nicely decorated. The bed is big and most comfy. We just loved the balcony which also has a lovely view of the river. They have kayaks you can use too! Highly recommend this Riverview getaway.

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.

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.
