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 over 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 George Washington

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. We are only three miles from Old Downtown Fredericksburg which offers many different eatery venues and shopping opportunities. Fredericksburg is full of historical sights and offers nightlife as well. We have canoes and kayaks available for exploring the river and you can swim from our private bank. The bird-watching from the RiverHouse is awesome!

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.

                                                            Beautiful space with everything you need

                                                            Caryn F.Fayetteville, NC

                                                            This property is absolutely beautiful! Walking up the stairs and into the living room area with all the windows and a gorgeous view of the river took my breath away.

                                                            Though the space is a single room, it is sectioned off very well. I spent most of my time on the porch watching the birds and enjoying the view.

                                                            The kitchen had all of the essentials. The bathroom having a shampoo/conditioner/body wash dispenser was a nice touch. The bed was heavenly. The space was immaculately clean. The owners thought of everything to include a step to get up onto the high bed. Not having to take the trash out at the end of the stay was wonderful. Just made departure very simple.

                                                            It is a shared entrance situation but the main home is separated very well and I barely ran into the owners at all. I felt that I had complete privacy. There are 2 full flights of stairs up to the space so, if that is a physical limitation for you, this could be challenging.

                                                            I would absolutely stay here again!

                                                            Like staying in a stunning treehouse

                                                            Cheryl C.

                                                            Pictures don’t describe the stunning view from every part of the room. You are looking out through the tops of trees, overlooking the river. Incredible! The bed is awesome and the room is spacious and quiet. Loved it and will be back.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            Thanks Cheryl, we look forward to seeing you again.

                                                            Spent Presiden'ts Day weekend here and had a great time.

                                                            ROBERT B.

                                                            Property was as advertised. Great location to relax and spend the day touring Old town Fredricksburg. Really enjoyed the quiet and the wonderful views of the river.

                                                            Comfortable and quiet

                                                            Brian S.

                                                            Great place to stay! Owners were very friendly and accomodating. Space was perfect for the two of us. All the amenities of home. The bed was remarkably comfortable and the gel topper made it very cool to the touch. No hot spots!

                                                            Would stay here again!

                                                            The view was spectacular

                                                            Kerry S.Phoenix, AZ

                                                            I had the whole top floor of the house. The house sits on the bank of Rappahannock River. The whole back side of the apartment is floor to ceiling windows. The view from the windows is the river and the woods on the other side. The view was spectacular. i watched the squirrels play in the trees next to my window for hours at a time. The best part was listening to the flocks of geese that would land on the river in the evening outside my windows. They have kayaks and canoes. I kayaked the river for a couple hours. I should have packed a lunch and spent the day kayaking. Lee and Ruth are great hosts. i will be staying with them, on my next business trip to the area

                                                            Perfect place for us!

                                                            Penny G.CINCINNATI, OH

                                                            This was our second visit to Riverhouse. We love the space and the wonderful view of the river. Staying here is one of the best parts of visiting family for Thanksgiving!
