We booked a night at the Rittenhouse after a terrible night at a hotel down the highway... Bob was very accommodating. He allowed us to check in early and gave us lots of tips on where to go around town. The property is beautiful-- he has lots of neat little walking trails going around his property. The rooms themselves are... More

Beautiful time capsule. Delightful owner, homey atmosphere. Property nestled in trees with a nature walk by a stream. Wish we stayed longer! We enjoyed The Shanty Restaurant nearby as well. The surrounding area has much to offer receationally.

Driving north over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge & Tunnel, this was the first overnight accommodations we saw, and we almost missed it, hidden away as it is. Drove through dense trees and shrubs to find Bob Rittenhouse sweeping the driveway by the office, despite his advanced years. A friendly conversation and look around the charmingly furnsihed old fashioned lobby and... More

This was our 11th stay with Mr. Rittenhouse. It goes without saying that if we weren’t completely happy with our stay and room, we wouldn’t have stayed this many times. The rooms are extremely clean and the view (at the back of the building with all the gardens) is excellent, while surprisingly quiet. We will definitely be back a 12th... More

After reading most of the reviews on this little motel, I decided this is what I needed at this time in my life. No phone, quiet, warm, relaxing place that reminded me that if this man has lived a blessed life, this is where I needed to go. It was everything I expected. I loved everything about it. The park...

Wife and I spent a long labor day weekend at this motel. We had a room in the back and it was huge. Everything is dated but the room was clean. Grounds were great for a small walk-about with the dog as this place is pet friendly. Bob - the owner is super nice and let us extend our check... More

Okay... I'm biased. I recently made my fourth trip to this motel/motor lodge at the southern end of Virginia's Eastern Shore. I love the motel and it's owner, Mr. Robert Rittenhouse. You feel like a friend visiting him, instead of a guest in his motor lodge. WARNING! IF you require the latest in hotel/motel furnishings and accomnodations, please avoid this... More

After traveling extensively thru east coast we came upon the Rittenhouae Lodge tucked away in St Charles VA on Route 13 in a beautiful wooded setting. The lodge is just that. An older lodge that, a lodge that steps u back I time complete w the most delightful owner Bob Rittenhouse. The room was large, clean and somewhat dated. Ask... More

Driving into the property the motel was well hidden from the road. Once down the driveway we could have been in New England for all we knew! The air was wonderfully scented from the fireplace. There are huge oak's and lob lolly pines.. camellias, azaleas and gardenia's. Our room on the corner was huge with a picture window looking out... More
