What makes this house unique

Wooded location. True log cabin feel with all the amenities. Safe swim area in wide part of no-wake cove that is close to entrance - no boat or skis going directly by.

Sitting on the porch (try the rocker) with the stillness and serenity of the lake views is the best way to renew and recharge.

Peace and Quiet in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific lakefront property. It has 3 nice size bedrooms and a finished basement.

The views from everywhere are great. My wife and I enjoyed our week on the property. Our only wish was that we were there for two weeks.

Plenty of sun and plenty of shade. Perfect for everyone.

The lake is large and beautiful We rented a pontton boat for a day to explore all the coves.

A great family place.

A visit to Monticello is a must.

Love Lake Cabin Retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year my cousins have chosen to share our Cousins Weekend at Lake Cabin Retreat on Lake Anna. The weather was not as friendly this year, with rain on both Saturday and Sunday, but this did not ruin our good time. This year all 8 of the cousins were gathered and we managed the sleeping quite nicely, though some sharing had to be done. Everyone commented on how wonderful the place is, well supplied and the views are gorgeous. We managed to spend some time on the deck on Friday afternoon when the weather cooperated and we also enjoyed the hot tub more than once. We seldom repeat a location for our long girls weekend, but were so impressed with Lake Cabin Retreat, and the quality of the care it is given by it's owners, that we opted to return here this year. The WiFi was an important aspect as we researched things to do and how to get there.. We enjoyed the new Smart TV which we used mostly to watch DVD movies. We'd brought many and there were many at the retreat for us to enjoy as well. More rain this year, more movies. But the views are just wonderful. How can you not relax and enjoy when you are in such natural beauty, rain or shine!

I am thinking this would be a nice place for my family - children and grandchildren - to spend a week long vacation when the grandchildren are a bit older. I do hope to return.

Great property for a large group getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I just graduated from law school and were looking for a quaint place to escape from DC for a few days. We loved this house because of the old-style cabin feel to it, but also the modern amenities that were offered. Andrea was very accommodating and was very responsive to messages on HomeAway. We received our security deposit back very quickly with no hassle. There is a marina about 10 minutes away (via car) that rents kayaks that we tok advantage of. Everyone had an incredible time and we will definitely consider returning.

Nice Weekend at the Lake

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Lake Cabin Retreat. We spent 3 nights with a group of 6, and we found the property just as described. The home was very charming with plenty of space for our group, and we particularly enjoyed the outdoor space -- the hot tub and fire pit most of all. The location was excellent, with a grocery store just a short drive away, and with a nice dock area situated on a pretty quiet part of the lake. The owners even left a bottle of wine for our arrival, which was a nice touch. I would definitely recommend this rental to others.

Our only complaint was with respect to the optional "linen" package (sheets and towels) that was mentioned in the rental agreement. We sprung for this option to make things easier, but it absolutely was not worth the extra $75 cost. For that price, we expected the sheets would at least be on the beds when we arrived, but we discovered this was not the case just before going to sleep the first night. What's more, the sheets were a hodge-podge of linens, and some were torn and didn't fit the beds very well. Had the package been better described ahead of time, we would have simply brought our own sheets and saved the money.

That said, our experience overall was a positive one, and this is a great location for a lovely getaway with a great group of friends or family.

Perfect for our girl's weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This really was a dream house! We rented this house for a girl’s weekend at the beginning of April and had an amazing time. First, the location is amazing, you are lakefront and the views of the lake (especially when the sun is setting) are breathtaking. There is PLENTY of room for a large group (we had 12 women) and we were all very comfortable. There is PLENTY of seating outside (especially down on the dock and by the fire pit, where we spent most of our time). The hot tub was surely a plus! We loved all of the quaint details and décor inside the house and the cabin-like feel. There is a Food Lion 5 minutes down the road, which was convenient! All of the girls are already talking about when we will stay here again!
