There is snow falling in the mountains so now is the time to enjoy the wide variety of outdoor winter fun Virginia has to offer. Virginia’s Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains are home to four ski resorts that offer downhill skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing. Fortunately, for our residents they are all just a day trip away from Embrey Mill. It’s fun for the whole family from beginner skiers to the most experienced. Here are a few resorts we recommend, that are all within driving distance.
Though we all love the idea of flowers, chocolates, getting dressed up for a romantic, candlelit dinner and the exchange of sentimental gifts, once we start to have our own little “Valentine’s” running around that picture perfect scenario seems harder to attain. However, just because it’s no longer just the two of you, Valentine’s Day can still be a holiday filled with lots of love for the entire family.
It’s no secret that as the air gets crisper and the sun goes down earlier that it’s harder to get the kids outside to play. Especially this time of year, after they have collected all sorts of new toys from Santa, most are content waiting for spring to arrive for outside activities to resume. However, here at Embrey Mill, with so much open space, parks and trails, it can be the perfect Winter Wonderland to play, explore, and spend family fun time together. Here are some ideas to encourage the kids to be curious and creative right here in their own neighborhood.
The sun was barely awake as ghosts and goblins, clowns and emoji’s started their stretching to prepare for the Second Annual Halloween 5k and Monster Mile Saturday morning. The Jeff Rouse Center and Embrey Mill sponsored the race with 377 registered racers.
Do you need a little less stress and a little more magic in your holiday?
If so, look no further than Busch Gardens Christmas Town in Williamsburg, Virginia. It’s a place full of Christmas magic, so close to home. It’s that special time of year when the kids start getting so excited about Santa making a visit, but where mom and dad tend to get a little stressed. Although it is the most wonderful time of the year, shopping, wrapping, cooking, baking and preparing for family visits can be a bit overwhelming.
The most wonderful, happy, and exciting time of the year will be here before you know it! Embrey Mill will be shining like a Winter Wonderland with beautiful sparkling lights, ribbons and wreaths throughout the community, giving you that warm happy holiday feeling! Want to know a secret? Embrey Mill gets an early visit from Santa every year right before Christmas!

The Knight family cemetery is located on the farm formerly owned by the Knights and later, by Jackson Musselman, son-in-law to Lewis Knight. The cemetery contains several graves; however, only two are inscribed.
It is that time of year again; the kids are back to school! We all know the first few weeks of school can be stressful for families with getting back on a schedule, making it to the bus stop on time, packing lunches and helping with homework. What’s a better way to relieve some of that stress for both, mom, dad and the kids by having a fun family day at one of the many Fall Festivals right in here in Stafford County?
Somehow, it’s already November, the leaves are well into “Fall” mode, and the fall school sports season is well under way. As things heat up at the local high schools, it should be noted that two prominent schools – Colonial Forge and North Stafford – have a long-standing sports rivalry that, once again, will be in full swing.
With Embrey Mill being centrally, located near Washington DC and several military bases we understand, maybe a little more than most, what it is like to have so many of our loved ones, neighbors and friends, fighting for our freedom. Lighting our front porch green is a small token to show our gratitude.
You can feel the air changing; the kids are once again riding the giant yellow school bus; and leaves are starting to change color, the signs of Fall are all upon us.
Every year Embrey Mill’s HOA holds a family focused Fall Festival. Imagine Super Hero’s, Jedi, and Power Rangers taking over Embrey Field as they come to play games and compete for the best costume prize.
When you say it you can feel it :Chill-e Cook-off. That’s right it’s time to chill out and enjoy the 2nd Annual Embrey Mill Chili Cook-Off as an Embrey Mill resident. This is a family fun event where everyone can enjoy the afternoon in Festival Park flying kites, throwing Frisbees, tossing the ball and just Chill-ing.

When most people attend a basketball game, they can expect long lines to get in, loud music, overpriced junk food, and the feeling of tension every time someone has to take a free throw. However, during the Washington Wizards game that took place on Veteran’s Day, retired U.S. Army Sgt. Timothy (Michael) Goodrich and his family got a huge surprise during halftime that they did not see coming.
