You'll be able to enjoy your evenings hanging out on the party dock, grilling, sitting by the firepit or doing something you get pleasure from, rather than pulling your boat in and out of the water. Get an early jump on the fish, too. Lake Anna's sport fishing includes largemouth bass and stripers. Perch and catfish are in plentiful supply as well. Boat rentals, marina services, and professional fishing guides are available nearby. Tell them we're on the public side.

There is plenty to do at Day Dream Retreat and in the areas surrounding Lake Anna, even when the weather is not cooperating. Play a game, watch DVDs or read. We have games, DVDs and books for all ages. Go golfing or wine tasting, tramp battlefields, see Montpelier or Monticello. The nearby State Park has hiking trails and a sandy beach.

Lake Anna, an easy 90 minute drive from DC and less than an hour from Richmond or Charlottesville is one of Virginia's best kept secrets. Its clean waters offer swimming, water skiing and world-class fishing. Nearby attractions include vineyards, golf courses, antique shopping, historic sites, hiking in the State Park and easy access to King's Dominion.

A group of us spent a weekend at Day Dream Retreat for a Mom's Getaway and we had a wonderful time at this home. The house was clean and cozy and the waterfront dock area was a perfect place to enjoy the sunset. We hope to make this an annual tradition!

A lovely home, on a beautifully landscaped property.

  • 5 of 5

The open air feel of the main living area and large back deck were perfect areas for gathering family indoors and out. The kids loved the spiral staircase up to (their own private clubhouse) the loft. Very family and kid friendly, with plenty of games and toys. Good sized dining room and a well stocked kitchen big enough for several chefs. The local grocery (Foodlion) is only a few minutes away. I think Wal-mart is about 35 minutes away if you forgot or need anything major.

The master bedroom felt oversized, at first, compared to the other bedroom, but there was plenty of room and sleeping arrangements to be had. Perfect for one large or two medium to small families.

We were in town for a wedding on the lake, two houses over. The master ended up being the brides preparation location. With the seating area and plenty of floor space it was perfect for the bride, her mom and five bridesmaids to do hair and makeup, and not get stepped on by the photographer.

We spent most of our time at the grooms parent's home, but taking time to walk around the property; we would definitely take advantage of the amenities on a future visit. The dock would be great for fishing or launching kayaks, with the grill and firepit close by. Plenty of grass for the kids to play and a great hot tub.

Andrea was great to work with, and readily in contact, even on the day of our check-in. The home is well maintained and cleaned, and we found it exactly as listed. A wonderful experience.

Beautiful and peaceful home away from home on the lake

  • 5 of 5

The owners graciously hosted us for a few days for a Mini-moon at the lake. The owner was so responsive, answering all our inquiries quickly and making the experience very easy. The home is beautiful and well kept. We brought our 2 year old lab with us. He loved the water and dock so much we spent most of our time there throwing sticks. The jacuzzi outside and master bathroom whirlpool were a real treat as well. Would highly recommend and will definitely be coming back!
