Perfect relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

We brought our old friend group back together for a long Memorial Day weekend stay at Serenity Cove on Lake Anna. Our group of about 20 was a mix of couples and singles, aged 28-35, from all over the US.

The house was perfect for our needs with plenty of space for everyone to sleep comfortably. The private bedrooms were nice and spacious. If I had designed this house, I may have turned some of the enormous closets into extra bedrooms - some of the closets are seriously larger than my childhood bedroom. The kitchen (with double everything!) was great as we divide up cooking meals. The space provided plenty of room to spread out prep and serving.

Most of our time was spent outside on the dock. There were chairs provided for lounging and there was even a paddle-boat for use. However, above all else, the water slide was most people's favorite feature of the house. If it wasn't for the great company, the slide might have been the highlight of the weekend.

As an added bonus, the owners were great to work with. They provided tons of information in advance and even had a caretaker meet us upon arrival to show us around. One of our friends forgot their jacket/keys and they over-nighted them to her immediately.

We've already re-booked for next year (and for a longer stay). Can't wait!

Perfect for extended family vacations!

  • 5 of 5

Property was large enough to accommodate 25 family members, ranging from 16 years old to 87. There was room to eat, prepare food (6 cooks fit easily), relax and have fun.

Particular hits were the water slide, the media room, the decks- and the available jet ski.

Property was clean and everything worked. You only need to bring food- any utensil you need is here!

The location is spectacular and provides one of the best views of and access to Lake Anna. Owners are very easy to deal with (unlike some others in Lake Anna area)

Neighboring properties are of similar quality, completing the upscale experience of the weekend. Just perfect!

Beautiful, well appointed house on a great lake

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a company retreat in April and it was perfect. The great room was large enough to handle > 20 people (we rented a second house as well) during our group sessions and the kitchen could handle the cooking load for the whole group. The property provides great locations for finding a quite spot for some downtime or fireside fellowship at night. The house is on lagoon 3 of warm side of Lake Anna, so the water is unusually warm. We had a ski boat on the water every day in mid-April.

Long Overdue Review

  • 5 of 5

Our 2013 Ladies' Retreat was held at Serenity Cove. We enjoyed ourselves to the utmost. We found this property to be just what we needed for our long weekend getaway. We were able to truly retreat and seek God. We hope to book it again and again for years to come. Maybe even a summer booking for a family reunion.

The owners were easy to work with and answered all our questions/concerns before our arrival. They showed flexibility with arrival/departure times. That was crucial to us as we had ladies coming from as far as Michigan.

We can tell that the owners take pride in their home. We are glad they aren't selfish and share it with us.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for the weekend and had a wonderful time. The house is very thoughtfully laid out. The kids had a play room upstairs that they had fun in while the adult felt comfortable. The play area in the backyard was also great for the kids. The adults were able to relax and play. There is so much to do without even having to leave the house. It is very spacious so we never felt that we were on top of one another. The house was clean and the Kitchen may have been my favorite thing, two of everything. Making it easy to prepare big family meals and store the food that we brought. I would stay at Serenity Cove again and would tell any of my friends about it.


The owners and the caregiver were awesome. Very easy to communicate with and met all our needs.

Too Little Time

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place for our family reunion. We had 23 people, aged 9 mos-60 yrs.and all gave Serenity Cove rave reviews. The waterfront is the best we had ever seen- a wonderfully protected and graduated beach for children with their own small slide with water cascading down it to make them squeal with delight. There was a floating dock that the teens,grade schoolers and adults had many contests on. The water is warm and beautifully clean, with exceptional ski, tubing and wakeboard conditions. It was hilarious to watch from the 2nd story large lakeside deck and see family members attempt the water sports- can't tell you how fulfilling this was and wonderful for those unable to participate; they had just as much fun! Grandparents would love to sit and watch close-up but not get wet! The house wowed everyone, and was all it was advertised. Though such a large group, we had plenty of room. The huge deck we used for each meal, and had movies in 1 room, x-box in another, pinocle in a third, while a main competition was going on w/air hockey,fooseball and billiards, with teams switching out from room-room; this made going to bed almost impossible as no one wanted to quit! We also had a family b-ball tournament and hooted as the men returned to their teen years!

The 3 chefs in the family were quite pleased with the kitchen, and there was plenty of fridge room. Best of all, there was always a place to get cozy with different siblings and their children and have long intimate talks of how life was, to reconnect in so many ways. It was great to be the hero to all, as I had chosen Serenity Cove.

We brought along our own small ski boat, but are already thinking about renting the large boat the owners have- it looked great and we could fit many more family on it. They also had a jet-ski which was also tempting. It was very convenient to have boat fuel at the house for purchase,and it is sold at the price the owner's pay for it. The lake seems endless, and in addition to sporting, it was quite pleasant to tour around it and see the sights. In 5 days, we never got to see it all.

We contacted the manager with several questions, and he was very informative and helpful.

We would definitely return here... with 23 people and 5 days, we never ran out of things to do, and never had to leave the property. The beautiful setting, lakefront and amenities can't be beat. I would highly recommend this for any family who wants a respite and reconnection.
