Rappahannock County Artisan Trail

Where Creativity and the River Begin!


Historically agricultural and with a strong commitment to land conservation, Rappahannock County in Virginia’s Piedmont Region has remained pristine and is described by many as “a scenic masterpiece made perfect by nature.” A rural oasis Rappahannock County boasts that there are no traffic light intersections, fast food franchises or “big box” stores. Although cell service is sparse, the lifestyle is both modern and connected as the region retains its rustic charm, specialized farming, arts & culture amidst its charming villages. Dining can be a casual experience at a local pub or a gastronomical experience under the direction of a master chef. Enjoy the variety and hospitality of our country inns, bed & breakfasts and vacation rental homes where many will tailor itineraries and activity packages to ensure that your visit is uniquely suited to you. The county’s lushly forested mountains and bucolic countryside provide inspiration for the creative process. A full schedule of visual and performing arts events, art exhibits and open artist studios and galleries await you in throughout the year. You will experience a sustainable way of life, where traditional agriculture has given rise to organic farming, orchards, vineyards and artisanal wineries. Visit a gallery opening, attend a concert, enjoy a relaxing massage, hike a mountain or explore scenic country roads,— you can do it all or you can relax and do nothing. Indulge your senses in Rappahannock County and take home special memories.
