Welcome to Stafford County

Stafford County is most notably known as being the site of George Washington’s boyhood home. Located north of Fredericksburg City, Stafford County offers a great mix of suburbs, estate neighborhoods, farmland, and waterfront properties! Looking for a great summer spot? Head over to Aquia Landing and put your toes in the water and, *erm*, tush in the sand. Take a leisurely stroll through the trails at Widewater State Park or check out Crow’s Nest Natural Area Preserve to learn about Virginia’s land conservation achievements. If all that exploring makes you hungry we recommend dropping by Mason Dixon for their signature ‘comfort grub’ menu! If you’d rather dress up and have a true gourmet experience make a reservation at the Log Cabin Restaurant!
