About Sonja Wilder

My family and dogs love our lake house and would love to share it with others.

Sonja Wilder purchased this house in 2013

Why Sonja Wilder chose Mineral

After vacationing at Lake Anna for several years we decided to buy a lot and then build a house. The lot is on a quiet cove on the private side of the lake. Boat traffic is at a minimum. The cove has deep water. It is fun to swim or just paddle up and down the cove. The neighborhood offers a community pool and a community boat launch.

I love the drive to Lake Anna. The roads are pleasant to drive on with pretty views of farms and mountains off in the distance. Even the dogs get excited when we cross that first bridge on 522 and get a glimpse of the water. And I love the soaring windows and lake views when I walk into the house. The back of the house faces south and it's always bright and cheerful inside the house.

What makes this house unique

This home is perfect for a large family or a couple families getting together for a vacation. Our dogs are happy to share the house with other well-behaved dogs as well. The house is completely wheelchair friendly. There is even a gentle paved path that will take you on to the dock.

I customized this floor plan to make it accessible and to have a layout that would be friendly for vacationers. I stocked the house with everything a vacationing family could want. After having stayed in several houses with my family I knew what worked and what didn't. For example, the 2nd sink in the kitchen really comes in handy. Plenty of bathrooms help too. And the gentle slope and short distance from the house to the water makes for a much easier walk back and forth to the house to grab things for the kids. And EVERYONE loves the Theatre Room.

Lovely Family Home

  • 4 of 5

My extended family had a wonderful time at the Relaxing Retreat on Lake Anna. Although the outside was unseasonably frigid, we all had a great time in this spacious home. We were unexpectedly surprised by all the toys, puzzles, and games! Our one year old loved to play in the downstairs playroom, while the adults played 🏓?!

Second vacay and just as great

  • 5 of 5

This house is truly amazing. It has enough room for everyone and the water is so close. The theatre room tops the end of every evening with great family time. My teenagers spent the whole week swimming and fishing off the dock during the day and watching movies with the family in the evenings. A great place to unplug and get away from everything. Be prepared to cook your meals here, because there aren't a lot of places to eat in the area. The community has a pool, but we never end up making it there because everyone has such a great time at the house. If you like sipping your coffee in the screened in porch or love fishing off the dock, this is the place for you. I know we will be back again. We lucked out this year and got the last week of the season and it just started to get cool, but the water was warm. Truly amazing and you have to take a look. You won't be disappointed.

Fun for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

We've now stayed at this home for the last two years, and it's the perfect place for us. The kids are in the water non-stop and love using the SUPs. They can fish off the dock with their dad each morning and night. We watch movies in the theater room during afternoon quiet time or late at night. We play games at the dining room table and in the screened in porch. Bottom line - we have a blast and are making wonderful memories as a family.

Great Time/Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Sonya for providing such a warm and inviting atmosphere making it feel like home away from home. The second you walk in you are immediately reminded you are on vacation....a lake vacation. From the front door you are greeted with views of the lake and a 2-story family/great room which is an open floor plan combo with the dining room and kitchen. On this main level was two large bedrooms (both felt like master bedrooms) with their own luxury bathrooms. The upstairs loft looks over the family room and more views of the lake. The two bedrooms and 2 baths up are very large but quiet, couldn't here anything on the main floor once the doors were closed. This was very nice as we had multiple generations present on this family trip. The basement offered a large playroom with plenty of toys for the young and old including a very nice ping pong table where I left my ego several nights! This level also has a big bathroom as well as a big bedroom with a sliding glass door which opens up to a concrete patio which stretches the whole back of the home. My daughter loved the hammock! The kitchen had a very nice screened in porch off of it with a deck that stretches the entire main level, very nice and spacious. Possibly the best part of the home besides the views of the lake, is the boathouse. A large gathering deck to the right of the main boathouse offered so much fun to the family. We jumped off the deck, swam around the dock, played on floaties, docked our jetski and boat....Sunsets and sunrises are amazing from the dock! The homemade beach complete with new sandpit offered us the opportunity to wind down after dark while the little ones saw how many smores they could eat. Overall, my favorite home we have stayed in on Lake Anna by far! We hope to be back.

Relaxing and Fun Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed here in the beginning of August, and it was wonderful! The house is perfect for a large group (we had four couples, plus two young adults, and two little kids). It is nice that each bedroom has it's own bathroom, and the rooms are all very spacious. The no-wake location on the lake is great for kayaking, canoeing, and swimming. The sandy beach is fun for little kids. The house is very well equipped for indoor fun as well, with plenty of toys, board games, video games, and the movie room. The kitchen also had all the small and large gadgets you will need if you enjoy cooking, as we do. We will definitely be back!

Spacious interior... every room is comfortable and accommodating. Inside or outdoors; sun or shade; swimming, boating or lounging.... something for everyone. Our family included infant, toddlers, children, teens and young adults... everyone agreed it was our favorite location for our annual Fam-cation. Although we rented two houses, this is where we spent most of our time.

Tim's at Lake Anna
"Good variety of food and you can sit out on the deck and look at the lake. "
Food Lion
"Grocery store only 5 miles away. "
SUBWAY® Restaurants
"Nice place to get a sub. "
Lake Anna Winery
Car: necessary

I am on the PRIVATE side of Lake Anna. There are no marinas on this side. This means the lake is quieter with less boat traffic. But, it also means you have to bring gas in cans down to your boat/jet ski.
