Portobago Bay -Eastern Fredericksburg Waterfront Community

Portobago Bay Article Image


Portobago Bay is a luxurious upscale waterfront community located on the banks of the wide and scenic Rappahannock River just southeast of Fredericksburg. Take in the breath taking sunrises across the serene Rappahannock River. Years of tidal river currents created one of the widest spans across the Rappahannock all the way from the mountains to below Tappahannock. This quiet place is called Portobago Bay. The community consists of 104 lots. The adjoining landowners purchased many of the lots. Only approximately 60 homes are scattered throughout the community and future available lots are a rare opportunity. The existing homes were perfectly situated to allow the best views to enjoy. They were all built to high standards, approved by the architectural committee to meet the best formation of this exquisite neighborhood. I personally call this area my home. My family loves the low light pollution standards to allow us to gaze at the stars. The community area offers a pavilion, beach, pier, boat ramp, and Lake Powhatan. We love to fish, boat, kayak, walk the 3-mile circle and just relax. Portobago Bay is protected from urban development with the bay to our east, Fort AP Hill to our west and farms with conservation easements to our north and south. This rare community is just far enough out to be peaceful and quiet and just lost enough to be convenient for commuters to the new Spotsylvania VRE train station and the City of Fredericksburg. If you visit this neighborhood, you will fall in love, just like we did.

There are several real estate opportunities here. One of my favorites is the stately brick rambler situated directly across the street from Goose Point Court.
