About the property

6 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 1 half bath (including separate 3 room apartment)

Lovingly renovated fabulous family get away located above the main part of the lake and offered for rental on a limited basis. Amazing views year-round from huge 2-level deck and stone patio w/fire pit. Spacious 2-story dock with available slip--sun and shade areas with power, refrigerator and swim raft for a day of relaxing and swimming in our 13'+ deep water. Luxury interior includes vaulted wood ceilings, fully-equipped granite kitchen, granite table for 10 plus bar counter seating, under counter ice maker, 65' flat screen TV, DirecTV, huge wood burning fireplace, wireless internet, leather reclining couches, reclaimed wood flooring. Linens and trash removal provided. Separate game room features 50' flat screen TV, video games, leather sofas, ping pong table and great views. Separate upstairs apartment provides extra privacy or overflow space for family groups. Spectacular views from main living areas, master, game room and apartment.

This family vacation home has been renovated, furnished and equipped for our personal use and is available for other families to enjoy when we can't be there. We rented homes at Lake Anna for 5 years before deciding to buy one, and we quickly tired of 'cookie cutter' rental homes with bland, neutral finishes and cheap carpet and furniture. If you're looking for a comfortable, welcoming home environment from which to enjoy the lake, this is the property for you.

Forest opening to spectacular lake access

  • 5 of 5

Two grandparents and two kids' families enjoyed a week here, sitting on the blessedly shaded deck (mostly bug free), overlooking an arm of Lake Anna. 83 steps down (and of course, back up) to the lake enables plenty of aerobic exercise. The trek is more than worth it. The kids fished, canoed (we brought one), sunbathed, and played in the water, using the float provided in the lake as a gathering, chatting, laughing place.

The inside spaces are generous and efficient. There are enough bedrooms, and bathrooms to serve 13 active people. The kitchen, with high-quality appliances, turned out meal after meal, serving us very well.

The remote location (down a gravel road and into the woods) is serene and mostly quiet. (There are the expected motor vehicles on the lake and neighbors' dogs were noisy, on and off.) Parking is generous and convenient.

A wonderful home with a breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

The home was absolutely wonderful; my family enjoyed our stay for our daughter's graduation. My only concern is that since it's a bit far out we lost our cellphone service but the home had fast wifi. Otherwise, the rooms were comfortable and lovely. The home was spacious and the view and steps to the lake itself were breathtaking. I would definitely recommend and would stay here again!

Wonderful Anytime of Year - Great for Groups

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over New Years and it was wonderful in the wintertime. There was an outdoor and indoor fireplace which we enjoyed on the cold nights. There was more than enough space for 12 people. Everyone was impressed by the beautiful views; pictures don't do it justice. Overall we were very pleased and are already talking about coming back in the warmer months.

Great Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

Mark's lake house was perfect for our group! We enjoyed the decks, fire pit and great views. The house has the perfect combination of lake and woods, but is still only a short drive from the grocery store.

Mark was also very accommodating for our needs!!

We would definitely stay here again when coming to Lake Anna.

Great Lake Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

High quality furnishings and appointments throughout this Home. Huge deck at multiple levels including the stone fire pit. We embraced the 82 steps to the water and fabulous covered boat area with our own challenge score card seeing who could do the most trips by the end of the week, some Healthy competition! The separate cottage was great for our daughter and her husband and new baby! Water was great right off the dock leading to a floating platform......I simply cannot list all the pluses here, and the only minus would be having to leave.
