Overview

Fredericksburg House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, with private dock and lake views in golf community.

Our home at Lake of the Woods has a large, partially wooded yard, with over 100 feet of lake frontage, a grassy front lawn, and a private dock located at the end of a deep water, private quiet cove. Go boating on the Lake in one of our two supplied kayaks or our stand-up paddle board (SUP), use the paddle boat, or go on a bike ride on one of our many supplied bikes. Golf on the private Lake of the Woods PGA course, or at nearby Meadows Farms. Relax in the hammock beneath the trees, play croquet on the lawn, read while sitting on the screened-in porch, or wind down in the hot tub. Play pool or have a game of darts in the game room. The house is warm and inviting, with natural wood walls throughout. Recent renovations include all windows and sliding panoramic doors; outdoor siding; hardwood floors in the dining room, living room and game room; and ceramic tile flooring in the kitchen and baths. On cool evenings, fire up the indoor gas fireplace while you watch a movie on the 50 inch flatscreen HD television. Use the Weber gas grill on the deck to cook your steaks, or if you were lucky, your fresh catch from the lake. Or if you don't want to cook, there are a variety of restaurants just outside of the gate (as well as at the Clubhouse), and in nearby Fredericksburg. The property is close enough to Washington, DC or Richmond to allow for sightseeing day trips.

About Robert Berdo

We are full-time residents of Northern Virginia. I work in Washington, DC. My wife teaches pre-school, and my son is attending James Madison University.

Robert Berdo purchased this house in 2001

Why Robert Berdo chose Fredericksburg

The water activities in the Summer, enjoying the fall colors in the Fall, the greenery and flowers in the Spring, and curling up with a good book in front of the fireplace in the Winter. And fishing, golfing, hiking and exploring year round! Truly a 'Four Season' property!

What makes this house unique

We love Lake of the Woods proximity to the various towns and cities(Washington, DC, Richmond, Fredericksburg, Culpeper and Orange) and our primary residence, the lake and all that it has to offer, and the occasional wildlife sightings. It's not unusual to see hawks, herons, eagles, and many other birds. Golfers will love the proximity to the Lake of the Woods course, and to the nearby Meadows Farms course. Everyone can enjoy fishing off our dock or bulkhead.

Beautiful Lake Front, Packed with Fun

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six spanning three generations had a great time at the house.

It is a beautiful lake front house packed with fun. It has everything we

needed for a relaxing vacation. If you like to get onto the lake, there are

at least five ways of doing it, single kayak, double kayak, stand up

paddle, pedal boat, or swimming. If you like to bike around the quiet

neighborhood, there are five comfortable bicycles to choose from in the

garage. Not to mention the hidden gem, a Ping Pong table.

The first thing we noticed was the hammock outside of the house when we

arrived. My two kids had a lot of fun there. Inside of the house, it was

beautifully decorated, there was a pool table in a separate room, dart

board, four TVs, a computer and internet. Many great DVD movies to choose

from, books, board games, everything that has "fun" written on it is there!

It has a fully functioning kitchen, washer and dryer as well as two full

bathrooms which are very convenient if you have more than four people in

your party.

Our favorite restaurants were Venice Italian for lunch and the Club House

for dinner. We bought groceries at the food lion which is just cross the

street from the front gate and cooked great barbecue using the Webber gas

grill on the deck.

We saw two white swans during our stay. My favorite spot in the house is

the front porches, both first and second floor, where I can stare into the

lake or the tall trees in front and let imagination go wild.

I wish we had rented for more days since we haven't got a chance to use the

hot tub and fishing gears provided yet, but we will return soon for our

next vacation.

Comfortable, very well-maintained house at beautiful lake spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time in this very nice community. The house was everything that was promised and the owners made our stay very comfortable, convenient and very well prepared. The hot tub was lots of fun, the lake beautiful and we enjoyed our bike rides through the neighborhood. We stayed with 7 people, including grand parents, and can highly recommend this vacation rental.

Great little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We are just returning from a great, relaxing, and fun weekend! This home provides a wonderful time, whether you're looking to completely relax or be active outside. We spent a lot of time in the wonderful hot tub and used the kayak/paddleboard during the day on the gorgeous, calm lake. Our dogs had a blast as well and we went hiking on our way out on the Wilderness Battlefield. Highly recommend this rental - thank you, Rob!

THANKSGIVING WITH FAMILY

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family holiday. I cooked a full Thanksgiving feast and your kitchen provided the perfect setting. Since it was cold out and we could not use the lake, we really enjoyed the hot tub and the gas fireplace. The house and amenities are great.

great reunion location

  • 5 of 5

We had a mini family reunion at your lovely home. Rob provided us with a detailed list of information in regard to the house and it many amenities. It was excellent because it left us with no unanswered questions. We fished, biked, and had fun with the kayaks and paddle boat. The fall colors were outstanding.

Enjoyed our time at your home.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of motorcycle riders and wives enjoyed a very relaxing time together, seeing and enjoying the beauty of your lake front home. We have some great pics and wonderful memories of our stay. The morning sunrises and sunsets overlooking the lake were stunningly beautiful. As owners and caretakers you provided us with all the conveniences we needed. Some said, they wished they could have had time to have utilized the kayaks, bikes and other amenities that were supplied. It would be a great place for a family getaway, but our purpose was to ride motorcycles in the Shenandoah Mountains, and to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Thank you for sharing your home and making us feel at home.

There is so much to do at our home in Lake of the Woods! Ride a bike on one of the many paved trails at the lake. Swim, float or sun on the lake. Fish off the dock (fishing poles provided). Go golfing on the lake's private 18 hole, par 71 PGA course, or go out the back gate to Meadows Farm Golf Course, home of the Nation's longest hole. For a complete listing and description of the lakes' amenities, go to LOWA.org.

History buffs will enjoy the various civil war battlefields, including Chancellorsville, Wilderness (which adjoins Lake of the Woods), Spotsylvania Court House, and Fredericksburg. Ellwood Manor, where Stonewall Jackson's arm is buried, is nearby. Rent canoes or kayaks in Fredericksburg, and take a scenic trip down the Rappahannock River. Bald eagles are almost always spotted! Go take a hike on nearby Skyline Drive, in Shenandoah National Park, or spend the day at Kings Dominion (just north of Richmond) riding roller coasters. Have a craving for fresh soft shell crabs or oysters? Go south about an hour to Virginia's Northern Neck. Or visit Richmond or Washington, DC, both of which are just over an hour away. Please note that you may not use your own boat at Lake of the Woods.
