Rappahannock County, our home, is located one hour west and a world apart from Washington, DC. The joys of the region include miles of magnificent countryside, a slower pace of life, beauty all around, people who wave as they drive by and no traffic. There are no shopping malls or chain stores, no billboards and no traffic lights. Rappahannock County is filled with world class artists and musicians, 4 theaters, fine dining, award winning wineries, unique homes and great people who appreciate what they have … and do their best to preserve it.
Drive into Rappahannock at night and you will see no street lights, just stars and moon. A place of mountains, foothills, farms, serene places and magical vistas enhanced by the headwaters of seven rivers flowing from the Shenandoah National Park on the western boundary. Springs and streams are abundant. Wildlife abounds. These are the natural things. But there is more!….
