About David and Kimberly Bruce
We are the Bruce Family. David and Kimberly Bruce-the owners of Bruce's Bend. We have 3 children. David was raised just one mile from the property and is very familiar with and loves the area. I was born and raised in New jersey till 1999 when I moved to Virginia. We both love to hike and be outdoors. Our children also love to hike and do all the outdoor activities that we hope you get to enjoy when you visit. We look forward to meeting new people who share the same love of the area.
David and Kimberly Bruce purchased this House in 1999
Why David and Kimberly Bruce chose Eagle Rock
David grew up just a mile down the road from the property. He had visited this house and knew the prior owners and told them that if they ever wanted to sell to let him know. Fortunately for us, they decided to sell and contacted David about purchasing the house. We love the house and plan on retiring here. We have had to move for a job change at this point and thought why not let others enjoy our home while we cannot.
What makes this House unique
David was in love with the house from the first visit. The view from the couch gave the appearance that the creek flowed directly under the house. We absolutely love the screened in porch. We love sitting on the couch in the screened in porch and have our morning coffee. The house has many great points--firepit, creek view, big side yard, patio area, deck overlooking creek and much more. The screened in structure out front is the origional camp that still remains. It has a fireplace which is a good place to sit back and relax or hangout on a rainy day or evening.

Everything was amazing!
house is great and right on the creek, perfect for a weekend of hiking and kayaking.
Perfect place to unwind and relax!!
Beautiful and Serene
This is a beautiful and serene piece of property. The house is nice and comfortable. It is well-kept and the owners appear to be adding and updating all the time. We needed a minor repair while we were there and it was fixed within hours of reporting it. How great is that!
It was a little difficult for senior citizens to negotiate the hill down to the creek and the rocky beach was not easy for the old people either. However, for younger people and children the tubing, canoeing, and kayaking as well as hiking should be great fun. We went to reconnect with old friends and the open and screened porches with the quiet, peaceful, green woods and the constant presence of the entertaining hummingbirds couldn't have worked out better.
A peaceful getaway
My family enjoyed this property very much. The river was peaceful and the house is very nice. The host Providing smores ingredients was very thoughtful and appreciated.
Make sure you have all your necessities, because finding groceries and beer is very difficult. Craft beer is not found at any local retailers.
There are 3 additional properties sharing the driveway and within walking and viewing distance. We were lucky they were vacant every day after our first night.
I would definitely stay here again.
Family Vacation 2019
When looking for a home for our 2019 Getaway, we came across Bruce's Bend. We loved that it was near the water and that they had all the equipment we would need to have some family fun! Wonderful home, has everything you need for cooking! Kids enjoyed the playhouse and swing set. We were able to go out on the kayaks and enjoy the creek. The house was clean, the bathroom shower downstairs could have been a tad cleaner. Contact with the owners was great! Kim answered all questions quickly. Our main issue was getting into the home! When we got there we were unable to put in our code and open the door. We had no phone service to send messages or retrieve an answer. The battery in the keyless entry was low, so you could not hear when it was accepting the code. We did eventually get it!!! I'm sure that it is fixed now!!
We loved the back screened deck, it was enjoyable to sit and listen to the water flowing and the thunderstorms that came in nightly while we were there.
Our only drawback was the rock bed in the creek. It is tricky to walk in to the water. Especially us older folk! Slippery even with your water shoes...
The steps down to the water are a little sketchy! They tilt in a bit, I'm guessing from the creek rising throughout the year! The bottom step, has several metal rods sticking out right where you step off.
However, with that being said! It's beautiful and quiet. So, for a quiet and serene vacation...
