About patricia doss

My wife, Patricia, and I bought the property and had the house built 11 years ago. We allowed for a private apartment to be constructed in a portion of the lower walkout level. We recently opened the entire lower level for guests to enjoy all of what Rocky's Run

has to offer. Rocky's Run was named after Patricia's horse, Rocky, who passed too soon.

patricia doss purchased this house in 2003

Why patricia doss chose Virginia

We designed and built this house, choosing everything from nails, to shingles and all in between. Everything upgraded. Apt can be rented with 2 Br's- 1 bath/ sleeps up to 4....or full rental with additional 2 br and full bath

Week-ends available, week nights available/ minimum 3 night in peak season, 2 night in off for pricing/questions, including certain holidays. (Surcharges on holidays)


What makes this house unique

Relax, Reflect, and Recharge are the words to express the aura of this secluded, 7 acre retreat that is surrounded with mature hardwood trees, as well as open pasture, nestled on a deep water, open cove.

You'll immediately begin winding down as you enter Stagecoach Road, that was originally used in the 1800's to cross the river. It has been maintained in it's original state, and it initiates your peaceful adventure to experience nature and the lake, at your desire.

'Rocky's Run' will allow you to take a breath, and catch the magnificent sunsets, while listening to songbird's on our feeders, or catch a glimpse of an occasional wild turkey, or deer passing through.

Watch for bald eagles & fall asleep in the lounge chairs as the enchanting sounds of nature intoxicate you. Watch for beaver, ducks, geese, and herons. Find that huge cat-fish that always eludes our lure. Night-time in the screened porch exemplifies the romance of this rental and the lake.

Don't miss this opportunity to experience what so many renter's desire.....a chance to rejuvenate your body and soul.

By the way, full moons rising, sunsets, and stars you've never seen before, are absolutely no charge!

The house and property were exactly as pictured. The rental is lower level of the house and very spacious. Everything looked new and the owners Tom and Pat mentioned the oriental theme bedroom was fully decorated a few weeks earlier. We had a great week on the lake and were able to dock the boat at the private dock on the property. The house was extremely clean and exactly as pictures. We enjoyed fishing, boating, the boat dock and the deck (with fire pit) midway to the lake. The property was well lit at night with upper and lower walk lights. Lights also at the dock and deck. It is a short walk to the lake in a very quiet inlet. Tom and Pat are very friendly owners and made us feel welcome. Tom is also a talented singer/songwriter with his own cd's.

Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rockys Run with three other couples for NYE weekend. We rented the entire lower level which was a perfect amount of space for us. The house was beautiful with amazing views of the lake. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. There was plenty of room for us to all hang out in the living area and play many board games that were stocked in the house. Tom was kind, responsive, and accommodating throughout the rental process. Rockys Run provided us with exactly what we were looking for, a quiet relaxing weekend away from DC.

Awesome Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented a few properties for various vacations and weekenders, but Rocky's Run was by the far just THE GREATEST. This house is one of a kind. Beautiful views, landscaping. Unique and comfortable home. It is so quiet and relaxing. The owners are friendly. The kids loved the place and were never "bored". There is so much to do on the property alone, that we figured the next time we visit Lake Anna, we won't plan near as much time away from the house. It's off the beaten path, but near the necessities like groceries and fuel. I only live a couple hours away, but I felt like I was in a completely different place. Thanks Pat and Tom. We will be back!

We had a great time relaxing by the lake. Everyday we swam, fished and kayaked. In the evening we would cook on the grill and also roast marshmallows. The grandkids were worn out by the last day. The home is beautiful.

Beautiful , Relaxing & Owners are AMAZING! con't..

  • 5 of 5

Yep, I shattered the stove with minutes upon our arrival! We were in shock, then laughter but when our husbands walked in, they could NOT believe their eyes. Of course we had to let Tom and Pat know that we destroyed their stove but I was too nervous to call so I made my brother-in-law do it. Tom was chill about it as we were freaking out. He said no problem, we had a stove within days…good thing we had the electric skillet and the grills 

Tom is a musician, and we were chilling on the deck and he came down to play us some of his songs and he made one for me! We were laughing so hard, we were crying.

He made a deal with me…he said give him the money and he would make a claim with his insurance company and if they approved it, he would reimburse us our money….AND HE DID!!

Amazing property, amazing owners…Rocky’s Run is a MUST!!!

Owner's Response: I enjoyed meeting all of you and playing songs for you, especially, "Jena Broke The Stove". Nothing like spending your birthday at the lake with friends and family and we enjoyed having all of you here. We hope to have you all stay with us again, but we should keep Jena away from the new stove!! LOL

Outstanding Lake View Get Away - In Living Color

  • 5 of 5

We were blessed with perfect weather and the leaves on the trees were in full fall colors - SPECTACULAR - doesn't do the view justice.

The sunsets from the boat house were AMAZING.

The accommodations were clean, neat, comfortable and cozy. The owners are great people with warm hearts that make you feel welcome.

We loved the quietness of the home which is nestled in the trees which makes the place very peaceful and relaxing. It is a great place to away from it all, recharge and feed your soul.

We definitely plan on going back.
