Best of Fall ->>> last 2 weeks in October --->> just REDUCED!

------->>>> Child & Adult Kayaks now available for renter use <<<<---------

Beautifully landscaped, level lot to the waterfront with walk-in access. Great party dock with screened room with fan and sunning areas. Dock in deep water AND a shallow swim area for our younger guests! Covered boat slip available for renter use!!! Plenty of space to park your trailer.

Located on the Public side, Day Dream Retreat has an amazing waterfront with hardscape level access, walk-in to water and a HUGE party dock. Firepit, fan in screened dock area, plenty of sunning room. Deep water for boats and a wonderful, safe swim area tucked back from the main channel but with easy access.

A-frame great room, fully equipped kitchen, huge master suite with Jetted Jacuzzi double size soaking tub and loft bedroom / playroom makes hanging out inside the house almost as fun as hanging out by the water.

Perfect for couples or the entire family, the retreat is located in a small community with the waterfront tucked back from the channel. Discover the wonderful water views combined with the privacy and serenity offered by the beautifully landscaped lawns and surrounding trees.

The inviting great room with its full lakeside windows and cathedral ceiling is a wonderful place to gather and unwind. Snuggle in for a romantic evening in front of the gas fireplace or some me-time in the large master suite with jetted jacuzzi tub and large sitting area with lawn and water views.

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. Enjoy a romantic retreat or family renewal at Day Dream Retreat. Available all year around.

Lovely

Beautiful home in private setting. The boathouse was our favorite place to spend our time. Swimming off the dock and a screened in porch for lunches and spending an evening. Would definitely go back.

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

No complaints here! The house was immaculate, only had 4 adults, so there was plenty of room. The docks and water area was the spot to be, exactly what we were looking for! The homeowner did utilize the apartment below the home for 2 of the days we were there, but that was fine. Would stay here again!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and didn't mind that our maintenance weekend fell on your week. Have a wonderful rest of 2016 and think of coming back to Day Dream again soon.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay at Day Dream Retreat over the 4th of July holiday week. There were a couple minor issues upon checking in but the owners were very responsive in getting them taken care of. They even got a repair man for the hot tub out on the holiday. The house is beautiful and has a lovely path down to the water. The dock is where we spent most of our time. It has a screened in porch with very comfortable furniture, ceiling fan, and radio. Most of us laid out on the dock or floated in the lake while others enjoyed the shade of the dock. The beds could have been a little more comfortable but all in all a great place to stay!

A lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

As my son stated, this house was amazing! Our family of five was very comfortable. The dock was wonderful, with a screened in porch and a covered boat slip. The only improvement I would make would be to replace the wall paper in the master bathroom. We loved hiking around Lake Anna and enjoyed the Copper Vineyard. We even looked into the possibility of buying a home while we were there!

An overall GREAT stay!!!

  • 4 of 5

Staying at the Day Dream Retreat was overall an AMAZING experience!!! The house is absolutely beautiful and was very clean upon arrival! The only downfall for us inside the house was only 1 queen bed and the other being a Full (it was small), but we were perfectly aware of this when we rented, but 2 queens would have been better. The high ceilings in the living room make that area a nice seating area to just sit around and chat. Now for the outside......Absolutely the best part of the rental! The gorgeous plants leading down to the dock and the well kept up yard made for a great walk down there. The screened in room on the deck was the BEST part! We spent most of our time down there. It was very relaxing and the kids were able to play right there in the water and we could stay in the screened room. The fan down there was an added bonus to help circulate the hot air. Being able to dock our jetski right there and enjoy our time on the lake was so convenient. We loved our stay here and would love to return again next summer for a longer stay!! The only downside to outdoors was on the deck by the house, we were eating on the picnic table and wasps were swarming us. There was a fairly large nest in the peak of the back of the house. We didn't let it "ruin" our time, we just didnt eat on the deck anymore, instead we ate down at the lake or in the house. I planned on emailing the owner after we left. I'm sure they will take care of it, the owner was very quick to answer all my emails and answer all my questions!

Owner's Response: So glad everyone enjoyed their stay and that you loved the house, yard and dock. You're right - immediately called the pest service and they came out right away and took care of the wasps. Hope to hear from you again soon about your next "Retreat". Have a happy and healthy rest of the summer, - Andrea
