About Kimberly Bruce

We are the Bruce Family. David and Kimberly Bruce-the owners of Bruce's Bend. We have 3 children. David was raised just one mile from the property and is very familiar with and loves the area. I was born and raised in New jersey till 1999 when I moved to Virginia. We both love to hike and be outdoors. Our children also love to hike and do all the outdoor activities that we hope you get to enjoy when you visit. We look forward to meeting new people who share the same love of the area.

Kimberly Bruce purchased this house in 1999

Why Kimberly Bruce chose Shenandoah Valley

David grew up just a mile down the road from the property. He had visited this house and knew the prior owners and told them that if they ever wanted to sell to let him know. Fortunately for us, they decided to sell and contacted David about purchasing the house. We love the house and plan on retiring here. We have had to move for a job change at this point and thought why not let others enjoy our home while we cannot.

What makes this house unique

David was in love with the house from the first visit. The view from the couch gave the appearance that the creek flowed directly under the house. We absolutely love the screened in porch. We love sitting on the couch in the screened in porch and have our morning coffee. The house has many great points--firepit, creek view, big side yard, patio area, deck overlooking creek and much more. The screened in structure out front is the origional camp that still remains. It has a fireplace which is a good place to sit back and relax or hangout on a rainy day or evening.

The only thing wrong is we had to leave...

  • 5 of 5

A true home away from home. This wonderful piece of property situated on what is essentially your own private piece of Craig's Creek. This home met and surpassed our expectations. There are a couple of great hiking trails nearby in Hoop Hole and Roaring Run. A very welcoming and accommodating location to enjoy a restful, relaxing and refreshing vacation.

Wonderful Family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the cabin and the area. There is lots to do within an hour drive of the cabin or sit back and relax and listen to the water on the screened in porch. The kids took a kayak ride and had a blast. Thanks again for opening up your cabin to us.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome experience at Bruce's Bend. We rented it out for a guy's weekend with three adults and fours kids. Everyone had a blast. The cabin has everything that could possibly be needed for a fun time. The owners have thought of everything and are so easy to work with. It is so quiet at the cabin and Craig's Creek was a lot of fun to play in. We kayaked, tubed, and swam for many hours. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a quiet getaway with lots of fun in the creek. Thanks for the great time.

We can't say enough about our short weekend stay at this lovely home. Kim & Bruce were excellent with communication, both before and after our stay. The home is very clean, well taken-care-of, and is situated in a gorgeous area. We definitely look forward to returning sometime in the future, God willing. Thank you again for a lovely stay. :)
