Large estate on the Potomac River to suit the needs of families and events
We are water people who dry-dock during the winter. As a teacher and engineer, we love projects, being outside, and socializing with our neighbors. Boating is our favorite sport, past time, destination and we can't get enough. The River House Inn is an estate with 400 feet of waterfront on the Potomac River and 32 acres of land here in Widewater! We offer The River House as a whole house for reunions, weddings, corporate events. We have only had great experiences hosting guests. Life motto: Find the good and praise it what have you got to lose?
Owner purchased this Estate in 2017
Why Owner chose Stafford
It's ON THE WATER! My favorite place to be! The eagles and osprey never disappoint for entertainment. The fishing is incredible: bass, snakehead, catfish (you can always hop over to the creek and fish off our other dock). If you are lucky, you will see the growing flock of turkey, families of deer and rabbits. That bark at night? That's Mr. Fox calling out.

The amount of space we provide easily accommodates large groups for fun and celebrations.

Beautiful home on the river. Plenty of room for a large gathering.
Would definitely rent again
Owners were wonderful and the property was GORGEOUS!!
Privacy and Gorgeous Views!
My family and I rented this home for my birthday weekend. There were 6 adults and 2 children. From the moment we pulled up to the property (which is inside this incredible wooded state park) we knew we had picked the perfect place for our family gathering and celebration. The home is HUGE and very unique with lots of character and charm. The views of the water are seen from almost every vantage point in the home. We spent a lot of time on the screened in porch and ate many of our meals out there. Inside was a wonderful great room with a TV and pool table which we enjoyed. The back yard is quite large and allowed for the whole family to play outdoor games including soccer. There were two kayaks that we all enjoyed and corn hole. The fire pit and chairs on the stone patio overlooking the magnificent views of the water were especially nice in the morning to watch the sunrise or in the evening to enjoy a beverage by the fire. The kids liked to fish off the dock.
Paige, the Owner, was very nice and informative and easy to contact and responded quickly. She was very accommodating and had the place nicely set up and ready for us. We loved our stay and will definitely be back!
PS: My 2 grandsons had a blast and the oldest who is 6 told me that this was his second favorite vacation ever! Only to be beat by his first favorite which was Bermuda. So you can’t get a better endorsement than that!
Awesome river retreat on the Potomac.
Paige was a great host and our team enjoyed the property.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay on the river. You were wonderful guests and we hope to see you in the future.
