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.

Loved Woodland Lake Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved staying at this lake house! It was our first visit to Lake Anna. The home has everything you could ever need for your stay. It was clean and comfortable. We especially loved that we could bring our 2 large dogs. We will definitely be visiting again!

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

Andrea, the woman in charge of the home for rental purposes, is delightful. SHe works with you, is always available to assist, and is always pleasant. The views from this home are gorgeous and the home itself is very nice. If you enjoy a long, luxurious soak, the master bath will be perfect for you. Also the bed in the master suite was comfortable, which is very important since the living room furniture leaves a bit to be desired in the comfort department. Andrea and the views are the keys to a pleasant stay in this property.

Dog-Friendly House w/ Wonderful Views

  • 5 of 5

Visited this lovely vacation home located in a convenient spot on Lake Anna with a group of 7 friends and our 2 dogs. The house was very fitting for our needs. We had enough space to spread out, while still maintaining a cozy feel. Within a 30 minute are a few local wineries, Lake Anna State Park and (if you visit in October) a few haunted houses.

The house itself was very well maintained, open-concept, with a great kitchen. I think they had every piece of kitchen equipment available that we could have thought of using. The grocery store is only a few minute drive down the road, so we made most of our meals at home. Bedrooms were nice, the 2.5 bathrooms were great to have with that many people. One of my favorite parts was spending mornings sipping coffee on the HUGE deck with expansive views of the lake. Only con related to the house was that the inconvenience of having to bring all of our own sheets and towels, because who want's to do laundry while on 'vacation'?! Though admittedly, this is clearly stated on the description.

The owner was even able to accommodate our very last minute request to check out late.

OVERALL: Would recommend and hope to come back soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you. I'm so glad everyone enjoyed their stay. Coffee on the deck in the morning is one of my favorite times. The lake is like glass. I agree about hassling with linens. Let me know and with enough notice we can set up linen service. Hope to hear from you again soon for your next Retreat. Have a wonderful holiday season.
