Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms and loft, 2 full baths, sleeps 6-8

Brand New self-cleaning Hydropool Model 695 just installed -- come try all the seats and be truly pampered and relaxed!!

>>>>>Covered Boat Slip

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

Beautifully landscaped, level lot to the waterfront with both deep water and walk-in access. 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.

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!

Satisfied

  • 5 of 5

First time to Lake Anna and was very satisified with Day Dream Retreat. The place was very clean and had everything we needed during our stay. The king size bed was one of the most comfortable beds ever slept in and the living room was very cozy for lounging. The grounds were beautiful, views were beautiful, dock was great, and the hot tub made for such a great end to each night. What a great relaxing time we had. Was exactly what we were looking for. Also meet the owner when leaving and what a nice person. Would recommend this place and do plan to return again!

Beautiful House and Property!

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriends and I came down for a girls weekend. We loved the house, the lake, the hot tub and the firepit! The house was nicely stocked, we only had to bring towels and linens. The beds were very comfortable and we slept very well. The only downside was the showers were a little small, and the couch in the living room was a little old and not as comfortable as some of the other furniture. Also, we had to take our trash to the dump, which was about 7 miles away.

Still, overall, it was a great time!

While this was a work trip in the winter time, we enjoyed our stay very much! Would come back again.

  • 4 of 5

My stay was for 4 weeks on a work trip. My family came down to visit for a week as well. My 4 yo little girl had a blast at several areas within an hour drive and she loved the cabin and kids items to play with. The jet tub and hot tub were the cabin highlights for us. The view of the lake was very nice as well. Cabin is less than 10 mins from a grocery store which was nice for those last minute food runs.

Overall a great stay and Andrea was excellent from inital questions, to booking, in trip needs, and follow-ups.

I will say that the best improvement that can be made to this cabin is by far the living room furniture. None of it is comfortable at all..I would recommend investing in that area.It would make evenings by the fire much more enjoyable. I understand peak season is summer time and not a lot of time is spent inside, but for the other seasons and rainy days a comfy couch and chairs would top off this living room with a view.

I will be back in the area in July 2017 and will be considering staying again.

Great property for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

We looked at several options on Lake Anna, but this one struck our eye! We made plans at the last minute, and the owners were very responsive, house was clean and ready, and Day Dream did not disappoint. My wife an I went to relax prior to the holidays. Only regret was not renting this in the summer with the family! Can't wait to bring the kids next time. Great house, great dock, and spaces for relaxation and fun!

Day Dream Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Day Dream Retreat for a few days to relax from the holiday madness. The home was really spacious and had everything we needed for our trip. We loved the views of the water and all the different areas to enjoy it from including the deck to the hot tub to the fire pit near the dock. The owner was very easy to work with and we loved the bottle of wine that was left for us! What a great property!

Great Lake Anna Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Day Dream Retreat was an excellent getaway spot for my wife and I. Very well kept house in a great part of the lake. We loved the dock area and had a lot of fun kayaking in the area. The water views from the house are lovely. The hot tub really stole the show for us. We loved sitting in the hot tub at night, looking up at the starry sky and relaxing. Owner was super to work with and very attentive to making sure we had what we needed.
