About the property

Waterfront and peaceful

Here is the best of both worlds!! Hide from the hustle and bustle of city life with your own lakefront getaway. Be part of a community with pools, beaches, tennis, golf and horseback riding. Visit the sights of DC in just over an hour. See historic Fredericksburg, VA, and the battlegrounds of the Civil War, in your own back yard. This lakefront cottage is one-of-a kind and perfect for a family of 6, or two couples. We would love to welcome you!

About M.J. Tierney

Older, established, semi-retired couple, we love sharing our beautiful home with friends, family and others who are looking for a getaway!

M.J. Tierney purchased this house in 2015

Why M.J. Tierney chose Virginia

Everything is open and on one level for those who are older, or who have small children. We love sitting on the deck looking out on the lake.

What makes this house unique

You are only a little over an hour from D.C. and the area is full of things to do - history, golf, wineries, you name it!

Great stay in Virginia!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at MJ's house on a beautiful lake and found everything clean and tidy! MJ was easy to communicate with and responsive. The weather was rainy so we were unable to experience the community much, but we did visit Richmond, Monticello and Fredericksburg and found MJ's house convenient to all three locations.

Wonderful stay at The Landing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend stay at The Landing! The house was well-equipped. The owners have provided all of the basics, plus many additional items you may have forgotten at home. We enjoyed touring the local battlefields in the mornings and spending the afternoons on the lake. Our family loved the paddleboat, kayaks and tubes available for floating around. We had a relaxing end to the summer and will definitely be back!

Great place to enjoy family and make lasting memories!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for two couples to share! We were able to host a small family reunion and surprise our Mother for her 75th birthday! Lots of outdoor spaces to gather. Indoor spaces full of quaint details and provided all we needed during our stay. We had a great time. Thank you for letting us share your home. The memories are priceless!

Beautiful property, very clean, well equipped. Visiting children were able to enjoy swimming, kayaking, and paddle boating. Sitting on upper deck was peaceful, quiet. Walmart, CVS, Food Lion, are nearby. We would love to return.

Beautiful lakefront location; cozy, comfy house

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful, relaxing week at "the Landing". The house had everything one would need - kayaks, paddle boat, washer/dryer, dishwasher, and hammock/deck furniture. Lake of the Woods is a great community with golf, two lakes, restaurants, and hiking trails. Owners were easy to work with and communicated frequently before and during. We would happily stay here again.
