Lovettsville is located in Virginia’s northernmost tip and was established by German immigrants in the late 1700s. The community was first known simply as “The German Settlement” and was formally named Lovettsville in 1836, although it wasn’t incorporated until 1876. Just north of town, you can cross the bridge over the Potomac to enter Brunswick, Maryland. (Many residents who commute to DC ride the MARC train from there.) The population of the town was just over 1,600 in 2010 but it has undoubtedly grown tremendously since. New home communities include Lovettsville Town Center, Dutchman’s Creek, Waterfield Hamlet, New Town Meadows, Kingsridge Estates, and Taylortown Meadows.
What We Love:
The town still takes great pride in its German heritage, hosting an annual Oktoberfest celebration and December Christkindlmarkt. There are plenty of other events throughout the year– our favorite is the Berserkle on the Squirkle, a 5K fun run held on New Year’s Day. Because the town’s center common area is neither a square nor a circle, it was ‘affectionately’ named the Squirkle. The course for the run is 27 laps around the circle, and the winner is chosen at random. (Presumably a good time is had by all!) There are also several very good restaurants in Lovettsville, including the highly rated Market Table Bistro. Their menu uses local and seasonal ingredients, bringing a true Loudoun farm to table experience.
