The full kitchen includes a Keurig coffee station, electric stove, dishwasher, sink, refrigerator with ice maker, and a small table for two. You'll also find pots & pans, kitchen utensils, silverware, plates, and glassware.

Bring your firewood or collect your own and enjoy a cozy fire in the cottage's firepit in the large private backyard. If you enjoy cooking on the grill, grab a tablecloth for the picnic table and just add your burgers our flat top grill !You might even see Gary the Groundhog, the cottage's mascot!

LOVE being outdoors? Load up your fishing gear, floaties, and sand buckets and enjoy the perfect location for fishing, tubing, kayaking, swimming, and canoeing. Set up a relaxing trip with nearby Virginia Outdoors or go on your own. ALWAYS wear a life jacket!

The River Cottage also runs along the Belmont-Ferry Farm Trail—Enjoy a two-mile hike, bike, or jog through three public parks in Stafford County! Scenic beauty surrounds you as you following this winding path through the Historic Port of Falmouth.

The path is fully paved and provides scenic stops along the way. Trail entrances are located on River Road at John Lee Pratt Park and Historic Port of Falmouth Park and on Butler Road at St. Clair Brooks Memorial Park. The YMCA water park can also be accessed by the trail.

LOVE history? Two minutes down the road you'll be excited to Tour Chatham Manor, which today is the headquarters of the Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park. Few houses in America have witnessed as many important events and hosted as many famous people as Chatham. Take a quick drive across the Falmouth-Rappahannock River Bridge and you'll be in historic downtown Fredericksburg!

While staying at the River Cottage you'll also only be about 10 minutes or less away from the University of Mary Washington, Celebrate Virginia After Hours outdoor concert venue, many dining and entertainment options in Central Park, Fredericksburg Expo Center, and the Silk Mill wedding and event venue and many, many other exciting, fun, & educational things to do!
