About Mark Ainsworth

We are lifelong resident of Virginia. My wife and I had a dream to build a second home for family and friends but once our kids grew up and went away to college we found ourselves not going to the lake as often as we used to so we decided to offer it up to a few rentals to offset some of the expense. Little did we know that the floodgates would open and our home became a favorite for many families that want to come back for return vacations and getaways. It is our long term desire to be able to retire at our Lake Anna home within the next few years and enjoy it all to ourselves even though our home has become the MOST POPULAR HOME on Lake Anna year in and year out.

Mark Ainsworth purchased this house in 2005

Why Mark Ainsworth chose Mineral

We built it from the ground up after seeing the 'Lot for Sale' signs while passing by on our boat when the community was first created. The views from the water were incredible when sitting in front of this lot and we could just imagine how beautiful the views would be from the house once we cleared all the forest away between the house and the waterfront. It took a few months to secure the land and ultimately get approval for our Luxury Log Home but we ended up being the first home to be built in this new upscale community even before the roads were put in. Our dream became reality after carefully choosing the home package from hundreds of log home companies. Every detail was custom as we imagined them. It is centrally located to all that makes Lake Anna great and before we could even move in we had people begging to buy it but we did not build it to sell .....we built it to enjoy our dreams! Never been disappointed for even one minute. Great neighborhood, Great People and Spectacular Home....what more could we ask for

What makes this house unique

Luxury and Logs combined with incredible views that are second to none. Our property is situated within 1/2 mile of a sandbar peninsula that washes sand all across our part of the lake and created beautiful natural sandy waterfront beach and most unique is the sandy lake bottom so you never walk in mud. The water is crystal clear everywhere from our beach to our boathouse which is 250 feet out from the waters edge.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely amazing! So stunningly beautiful that I truly hope that we have the pleasure of returning for a vacation here in the future.

Lake Anna is stunning even on stormy days. We saw tons of wildlife, especially birds (Bald eagles, herons, geese). The house is huge and has such comfy rooms and great shared spaces, you will not miss any comforts of home because the house is that fantastic!

We hosted my wedding here and even though the lawn is absolutely gorgeous, Hurricane Matthew had very different plans for what would've been an outdoor ceremony. But luckily for us the inside of the house is just as gorgeous and huge! The pictures don't quite do it the justice it deserves. Despite the rain, our wedding was absolutely perfect and it was incredibly fun to be able to host our wedding party at the house. It made the weekend feel incredibly special and intimate to be surrounded by our loved ones.

The Ainsworths were also incredibly easy to work with and very responsive. Unfortunately, one of our vendor's delivery trucks left a giant tire mark in the grass right off of the driveway (we had multiple problems with this vendor, so we were irate and incredibly embarrassed). We let the Ainsworths know immediately and they were very kind but wary due to concerns if it damaged a sprinkler system (luckily it did not).

Overall such a great experience! BEAUTIFUL LAKE! SPECTACULAR HOUSE! WONDERFUL OWNERS! Thank you for providing the setting that made our wedding amazingly perfect! :)

This is the fifth winter in a row my seven college suite-mates and I have rented Libby's Landing. We stay for three nights so we have two full days together. One day we travel to a local small town for sightseeing and shopping (and a winery) and the next day chill by the fire pit and take a hike through Lake Anna State Park. It's our home away from home.

Best vacation we had in a long time. The house was clean and well laid out for our huge family.

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Lake Anna for over 10 years and had some good luck and some bad luck with various rental houses. We wanted to go back to the one we found last year but it was booked so we gave this one a try and even though it was a little out of our was by far worth it and we are already booking it for next Summer. The girls loved the sandy beach. My wife and I loved the shallow sandy lake bottom along the shoreline so we could relax while they played in the water. The house was huge with everything we needed. My wife's father was able to move around with ease from his bedroom and all over the main level through the screen porch and on the huge deck in his wheelchair. Mark (owner) was easy to get ahold of and made sure we were happy with the house. The only issue we had was 1 day all the smoke detectors started going off for no reason and we couldn't figure out how to get them to stop. One call to Mark and he walked us through it to get it solved. Thanks Mark for making your home available as a rental. If you ever want to sell it, let us know.

Beautiful Lakeside Home

  • 5 of 5

Our management team spent time in this lovely home. Even though we were having a planning retreat for the coming months, having such a beautiful setting made our time so much better. The sunrises were stunning for those up early.

The six bedrooms allowed all of us to have our own space. There were soft and hard mattresses, so you had choices. Everything was very clean and tidy. We did notice that some things were placed or built for shorter people, a light fixture upstairs and walking out to the deck into the roof line of the fireplace. We just tried to warn our group so that no one got hit. The people upstairs had a hard time getting the doors to latch and stay closed. The bath tub upstairs drained very slowly and the water pressure was low everywhere. These were all minor inconveniences compared to the marvelous great room, kitchen and deck areas.

We had a nice fire outside in the fire pit one night and fishing off the boathouse deck another day. This is a wonderful home for families or work groups.

Four years in a row....we'll be back next year!

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful relaxing place for our college reunion. Seven of us James Madison University grads now consider this our second home and return each February to Libby's Landing. We are women in our late 50's and enjoy having our own rooms, the large kitchen and especially the great room overlooking the Lake. We rarely leave our communal spot!
