Beautiful waterfront retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in July 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed the amenities and setting at Lake Anna and wouldn't hesitate to rent here again. Very comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen and games/videos, deep water at the dock for our boat and for swimming/kayaking. Only helpful thing would have been land access to the water as we had to go off the dock every time to get so a little challenging to get in and out of the kayak off the steep bank-would be helpful to have steps down into shallow water-just a thought.

Nice quiet cove in no wake zone for relaxation.

Beautiful community.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you liked the Retreat and thank you for the feedback. We hope you'll be back soon to try the new couches. Not sure what was up with the TV, relatively new flat panel but that's been replaced as well. Have a great 2017. Thanks, Andrea

Lovely getaway on the lake

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful and the location was perfect. A great combination of woods and lake. Fall is the perfect time to go. There is great hiking in the area and also a beautiful view of the lake from the deck and living room. The puppy loved it too!

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spacious property with lots of amenities. Visited with our family of 6 and the dog. Plenty of room for everyone. On a rainy and windy Saturday we hunkered down and enjoyed several movies from the extensive DVD collection. We launched the boat from the community ramp and tied up at the homes private pier. Even though the weather didn't cooperate we had a terrific weekend.
