Kingfisher Cove This rustic and secluded cabin provides a perfect escape for a romantic couple or a small family. Kingfisher Cove is located on 22 acres of peaceful woodlands. The privacy of this wooded retreat provides a relaxing and serene setting. The lake and dock are a gently sloping walk from the house and offer a level waterfront on a quiet, peaceful cove. There is a large sun deck with shade pergola with swinging chairs perfect for napping away the day while the kids play in the large sandpit. Take out the kayaks and explore the surrounding water. In the evening, gaze at the stars in the large wildlife meadow and roast marshmallows outside in the fire pit. This home has wireless internet, plenty of books, movies and games for children and adults to enjoy as well. The on-site launch ramp makes it convenient to launch your boat. The boathouse can be used for a fishing boat.

Amazing water access and privacy
The dock area is amazing! We caught tons of fish, saw lots of wildlife including beavers, went kayaking and hiking in the woods and roasted marshmallows. Our 7 year old had a blast while we got to relax. The house is a bit rustic but it's spacious and the kitchen is upgraded. We can't wait to go again and bring some friends with us.
Thank you for your kind response. We are glad you had a good time. We hope to see you again next year!
The dock is fantastic.
This is a rustic location and facility, but the dock was huge and and the hanging chairs were great. Caught lots of fish. The kitchen was well equipped. It is not a huge house, but the beds were comfortable and the home clean. You are surrounded by woods and nature. Lots of privacy. We would go again.
Thank you for your kind words. We have striven to make the house functional while keeping it simple. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
If you want private access to the water on kayaks or swimming, this is an amazing option. You can't see another house from the water or the rental! The deck is amazing, and the house was everything we needed. The kitchen seems recently renovated- there wasn't anything we didn't have available to us. We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Kingfisher Cove.
I stayed here with my mom and two sisters this summer! We loved it! The house was clean and the property was super peaceful. The dock is amazing and we lived the sky chairs! Would definitely recommend it!
We stayed at Kingfisher Cove in June of 2013 but the calendar didn't let me go back that far. The house is rustic but comfortable, we didn't spend all that much time in the house but it had everything we need. The deck is wonderful and that is where we were most of the day or out on the lake in the kayaks. If you are looking for privacy this is the place. It's on 20+ acres of land far from any other dwellings. During the week we saw no one and on the weekends an occasional jet ski would come down the cove but never close to the property. Great place for a romantic getaway.
A Rustic Retreat with Lots of Potential
We booked Kingfisher Cove for a long weekend. We wanted something different from the beach - a little more seclusion - a little more peaceful. We expected a rustic cottage/cabin, and that's what Kingfisher is. Although we were a little surprised to find the walls to be plywood (a little more rustic than we anticipated), the accommodations and amenities were quite adequate, and the home was tidy and clean. The kitchen is quite small, making it difficult to have more than one person in the kitchen trying to prepare meals, but sufficiently equipped. Also, if you have children accustomed to taking a bath who may not easily adjust to taking a shower, note that this house only has showers. All in all, we enjoyed the home and it suited our needs well.
As far as the property, we we're slightly disappointed. The pictures are a bit deceiving. I would appear that the fire pit area is immediately adjacent to the house - off the back deck, perhaps. That is not the case. It's about 50 or 60 feet away (guesstimate), and the dock and boathouse is another couple hundred feet away from there. Also, the pictures show a nicely kept yard and area between the fire pit and dock. That was not the case during our stay. The yard immediately surrounding the house, and just up from the dock, were cut; however, everything else was overgrown. This was disappointing because we didn't feel comfortable trekking through the 22 acre property to explore, when there was poison oak and tall grass everywhere. The tall grass was no less than a foot and a half tall, and having seen a snake on the property (we weren't really surprised or troubled by this - we were in the woods afterall) we didn't want to go trampling around in tall grass where a snake could easily be hiding.
The dock itself was magnificent! HUGE! The swinging chairs that were provided were also lovely and made for great relaxation under the pergola. The sand pit and provided sand toys were a nice bonus - our 2 year old loved it! Unfortunately, once we discovered a snake nesting on the edge of the sand pit, we had to make it off limits. There were also three kayaks provided, but we never had a chance to use them. Our trip was plagued by rain, or the threat of rain/a storm, so we never took them out.
Although completely unrelated to the house, I still feels it's important to mention for those unfamiliar with Lake Anna, as we were prior to this trip - it's a gorgeous area, but there is nothing to do if there is inclement weather.
