Busbees Cove - At Center of Private Side- w/ Ramp!
Lake Anna Central Virginia

Great House with a AMAZING View!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I (8 of us total) rented this house for a weekend getaway - to simply relax, scrapbook, watch movies and enjoy the amenities that this house has to offer. We were NOT disappointed! As a matter of fact, we have taken several trips to the Lake Anna area over the last couple of years, and this house was our favorite so far! We loved the open space that this house provided. The set up was perfect for a group like ours, with the kitchen/dining/living area all located together. We never felt crowded or uncomfortable. To top it off, the view from the main living are was AMAZING!! It really is a beautiful spot on the lake! The entertainment room in the bottom level of the home was perfect! There was so much to do - billiards, air hockey, karaoke and more! Once again, the use of space was perfect and we all enjoyed the entertainment. The hot tub was an added bonus! We would have enjoyed the larger TV in the main living area upstairs, but perhaps this is an upgrade that the owners will make in the future. In summary, the owners were wonderful to work with and the house was in great condition (clean, well-decorated). I have a feeling my group and I will definitely return to this home in the future!

Book Clubbers Delight

  • 5 of 5
Our book club has rented this house two years in a row. We've had a great experience both times. Great house, great proximity to lake. The hot tub, fire pit and karaoke are key! Just a couple of suggestions for the owner - maybe upgrade some of the beds to kings? Queens seemed a little small and there is plenty of space in the bedrooms. Also, the top rack of the dishwasher scared us a little bit - might be time to replace that boy. Other than that, this house has it all! Can't wait to come back to Hot Lake Anna!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your response! Probably won't undertake the changing of the beds until replacement requires it, but good suggestion. As for the dishwasher top rack, I have ordered replacement parts at this time as the plastic locks at the back of the rack appear to be working loose and causing rack to slide out farther than intended. That should fix issue. Thanks again for the notice and glad you liked our home!

Thanksgiving stay at Lake Anna

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (9 of us) had a wonderful stay at a lake house on Lake Anna over the Thanksgiving holiday. The house provided privacy (and bathrooms!) for each family and we felt "at home" during our 5 day stay. There were more than enough games to play and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils and cookware for any meal you wanted to cook up! All in all, I would recommend this property to any family wanting to live comfortably (with a fantastic view, I might add!)and have fun too!

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5
This house is amazing. Its light, bright with an airy feeling and is super clean. The bedrooms are spread out so no one felt cramped. The stand-alone ice maker was awesome for a hot week! We had no problems with any listed amenities and we would recommend this house highly. The on-site boat ramp is so convenient and the dock area is very nice. The view is wonderful and we enjoyed every aspect from sitting on the deck, grilling, using the game room after dark, to coming and going easily with our boat around the private side of the lake since this property is centrally located. The owner was great to coordinate payment and house access with good, detailed property information emailed to us ahead of time. We'll be back!

From the Owner

When we decided to purchase a lake house at Lake Anna, we search the entire lake, both sides, for nearly a year trying to find the right property with nice deep water, without success. We then focused our desires on building the house of our dreams, and spent another year looking for the right land to buy. When we first found this lot it was fully wooded, but we had a vision of what could be achieved, and are now ecstatic about how it turned out. There are still a few items we will need to add to make it perfect for our retirement home, but we are extremely happy with it, and everyone who visits has great things to say. In the near future, we will probably be adding a detached garage with separate living quarters above it, along with an outdoor kitchen area and covered ceiling below the deck to allow enjoyment outside even in the rain!

Activity and Interests

There is plenty to do at Busbees Cove all year round. Come in

the summer for swimming, tubing and boating. Come in the fall to

enjoy the fall foliage or take a wine tour during harvest time.

Come anytime to just relax, head out fishing, or watch for Eagles flying around the cove.

Nearby attractions include golfing, hiking and Kings

Dominion, or take time to visit Monticello, Charlottesville, or Fredericksburg, all

just a short distance away.

Boat rentals, jet ski rentals, and marina services are all available

on the Public Side of the lake.
