About Tom Robertson, 540-268-0908

Tom is retired. We down-sized to smaller home. The lake house is a great place to get the whole family together. Lots of room for everyone to have their own space.

Tom Robertson, 540-268-0908 purchased this house in 2003

Why Tom Robertson, 540-268-0908 chose Locust Grove

We were looking for waterfront home, preferably in gated community. Only 60 miles from D.C. A lake is free from salt water and wave damage. The family can enjoy the use of kayaks and pedal boats in a calm environment. Home has large dock to moor boats, etc. Very desirable for us.

What makes this house unique

The huge screened porch offers a great space for dining outside or just enjoy watching the waterfront activities. The house is very comfortable; a great place to put your feet up and relax.

Very warm and comfortable home. We had only 8 people and the house can sleep 16 but I would return again because we loved having all the space and the beautiful view of lake.

Great House for a Very Large Group

  • 5 of 5

All week I heard people in the group talking about how perfect the house was for us. Plenty of sleeping space for our large group and a huge area with the kitchen and living room for everyone to gather, not to mention the amazing porch. The kids loved the lake and the Rec Room. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to any large group coming to the area.

Big and comfortable.

This house was a great big house for our big family. The view was lovely! The children loved playing on the lake. They fished, kayaked, and played on the peddle boats. The location was central to lots of great historical sights and shopping. We had a great stay!

The Lake of the Woods is a private gated community located on Route 3, about 15 miles west of route I-95 at Fredericksburg, Va.
