Agrarian preserved countryside

Situated in one of the most historic regions in America, The Lodge at Moss Neck is nestled between Fredericksburg and Richmond in the idyllic rural setting of Caroline County, VA. Only 70 miles south of Washington, D.C., but far from the demands of modern life, this picturesque retreat offers an escape to outdoor activities and rich history.

Importance of Moss Neck

Located in an agricultural center, The Lodge at Moss Neck is surrounded by the charming villages of Bowling Green and Port Royal, and bordered by the Rappahannock River, which served as a highway of commerce from the Colonial Era through The Civil War. This distinctive escape offers a variety of attractions for everyone to enjoy, including the vibrant community of downtown Fredericksburg, where original 18th and 19th century buildings line the Historic District. While here, visitors can also discover an eclectic mix of over 100 stores, art galleries, boutiques, antique shops and chef-owned restaurants. There are local battlefields and museums to tour, wineries and farmer’s markets to explore, and championship golf courses to play.
