Trip Report A Mother/Daughter long weekend in Rappahannock County

Jump to last reply

My mom (62) and I (32) wanted to enjoy a long weekend away together over the MLK holiday. After doing quite a bit of searching we decided to stay close to home (we both live in Virginia) and have a weekend "away" in our home state.

My mom found a place called "The House on Water Street" and we had a wonderful experience. http://www.thehouseonwaterstreet.com/
We contacted the owner, Barbara, and told her our plans. She was immediately responsive and actually put together an entire weekend plan for us. It was fantastic.

You rent the whole house (three bedrooms) and they provide all the breakfast items in the fridge and freezer. So you get a bed and breakfast experience but the privacy of a self-cater rental. We actually ended up eating mostly our own stuff for breakfast but we enjoyed the tea and granola that were available. And the croissants and bagels in the freezer looked tasty.

The house is great, there's a gas woodstove in the living room that you can turn on to enjoy, there's a TV and DVD/VCR with a selection of movies and DirectTv. There is wifi. There are plenty of books and magazines to look through while you relax. There are two bathrooms, one with tub and shower, one with a clawfoot tub. And the gardens around the property look like they would be really nice during Spring/Summer/Fall. There is a little Sprinhouse porch-like area that must be great for reading in warmer weather. The only negative about the house is that the stairs to the bedrooms are really steep and narrow. Anyone with mobility issues might find them to be too much.
