My wife and I were looking for an easy escape weekend near DC and we found it at the River Terra Retreat. With the help of Kristine, the "guest whisperer," we had a weekend to remember. The house is a lovingly restored Victorian home, but with all the modern comforts one would expect in a retreat. We stayed in the... More

Perhaps you know of another Inn in VA with a similar name??? Well, River Terra is the Inn at Little Colonial Beach for a fraction of the price. This Inn is immaculately clean and very nicely decorated. We stayed in the 2nd floor suite and really enjoyed the spacious bedroom, bathroom and private balcony with a view of the Potomac... More

BEFORE YOU READ! * If you are dieting, this is not the place for you. * If you enjoy food as much as I do, you will love River Terra. * If you want to walk/run some calories off (so you can enjoy more deliciousness, of course), you can easily get a 5-mi loop in. It was flat and beautiful,... More

River Terra provided us with a superb getaway for a couple of nights. Kris was welcoming from the beginning of our visit. She made us feel right at home in a special sort of way. We stayed in a second floor suite with abundant amenities. The deck was gorgeous with a slightly obstructed (not a real problem, but worth knowing)... More

What a wonderful weekend! Kristine goes above and beyond, to make your stay memorable! Gourmet breakfasts and incredible tapas! Chatting with her in the mornings, over coffee, about all the charity work she and her church do, was by far, my best memory! I cannot wait to go back and stay in the suite upstairs, it was gorgeous!

I stayed here with my boyfriend for Labor Day Weekend and it was a really great experience. Kristin was super friendly, welcoming and helpful, she really goes above and beyond. First, just the breakfast made the trip worthwhile. It was so delicious : maple bacon, rustic baked eggs, hearty french toast, fresh fruit, glazed peaches, ect.... We stayed three nights... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the first floor rooms last month. My husband was participating in the Colonial Beach Tri on Sunday, so we came down for Saturday night. And boy, were the reviews accurate. From the time of booking, Kristine went above and beyond to ensure we had a pleasant stay. When we arrived, we left... More

River Terra Retreat ...and are willing to go off the beaten path to get them. A beautifully restored home that is more than you'd expect for for a B&B tucked away in sleepy Colonial Beach, VA, a one-traffic light town on the Potomac River. Only open a year, this expanded and renovated 1911 home, welcomes guests in five rooms. Ours,... More

I was lucky enough to find this B&B on TripAdvisor as a nice weekend vacation for 4th of July weekend. All the reviews are spot-on. We stayed downstairs and shared a bathroom with another couple, but everything was extremely clean, the room was comfortable and well-kept, and the food was amazing. Bottom line, if you want a peaceful, fun stay... More

My husband and I usually don't stay in B&Bs but decided to recently while visiting Colonial Beach. River Terra Retreat is an exceptional B&B and Kristine is a wonderful hostess and (I can't say this strongly enough) marvelous cook! Her breakfasts are absolutely the best and her tapas are wonderful as well. We stayed in the Greyhound room which is... More
