About the neighbourhood
Our rental property is located in southern Stafford County less than two miles from historic downtown Fredericksburg on the tidal section of the pristine Rappahannock River, 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 less than a 5 minute drive by car to historic downtown Fredericksburg where there are numerous shops, restaurants, galleries, national pa... more
