Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 4 adult/4 child, has 3 kayaks, 1 canoe, 1 paddle boat

Come stay on the private side of Lake Anna in our well appointed country home on 5 tranquil acres with a beautiful waterfront boat house which includes a screened porch, large vinyl-planked swim deck, boat slip, 3 kayaks, 1 canoe, a paddle boat, and hammock chair. This cozy home has a kids playhouse with swing and climbing wall, a fire pit, a hammock, ping pong, foosball, and lots of kids toys. Sailaway Bay has booked solid every Summer for many years and has provided a lot of fun and relaxation for its many guests. At only $1582 for a full week's rental during prime Summer season (this is the total price which includes all fees, cleaning, tax, rent), Sailaway Bay is a reasonably priced week of vacation that won't break the family bank.

At Lake Anna, properties are described as either "Waterfront" or "Lake Access." "Waterfront" means the home is directly on the water, sometimes that means there is 300' of shoreline, sometimes it means there is a small inlet or cove with very little waterfront. "Lake Access" means the house isn't located on the water, but usually there is a community common area with a boat ramp and sometimes a boat slip assigned to the house.

Our home is sort of a hybrid between Waterfront and Water Access. The home itself is not located directly on the water, but our property includes a private 50' x 50' parcel of land with a boat house which is located directly on the water on our gorgeous low-traffic cove with very nice western sunset views. Enjoy the boat house's screened porch and large vinyl-decked swim platform w/ladder (no splinters). The boat house is for the exclusive use of our renters and the community boat ramp is only a few steps away from our boat house. Take a short cruise in the sit-on-top kayaks (three of them), the big green canoe, or the two-seater paddle boat (life jackets included) provided with the rental and keep watch for an American Bald Eagles that frequent the area. Our community has only 13 homes, all on one or more acres, making for a very private and peaceful experience. The private side of Lake Anna has less boat traffic because there are no public parks or marinas and our cove is great for swimming for that reason. Sailaway Bay offers a great waterfront experience at a significant cost savings compared to that of a waterfront rental; you'll enjoy a memorable family vacation at a very reasonable cost.

Additionally, we like this hybrid set up a lot. When we had small children (they are grown now), we liked being a little bit away from the lake so we didn't have to worry about the kids slipping out of the house and down to the water without our knowing. When we go to the water (the boat house), we take a leisurely 10 minute stroll or drive down and park. The water is 0.4 miles or 700 yards from the house.

Our cozy home has a beautiful great room with cathedral ceiling, hardwood floors, ceiling fan and wood burning fireplace. An adjacent dining area is equipped with a table for seating eight. A counter/bar between the dining area and kitchen seats three and is great for extra dinner seating or for supervising the chef while watching TV/DVD/BluRay (Satellite TV). The kitchen is fully equipped and has a double sink, large refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, range/oven, toaster oven, blender and other kitchen necessities. The home has 2 bedrooms (queen size bed in each), 2 full baths, and a full basement, but sleeps 4 adults and 4 children with the pull-out couch (queen size) in the great room and two futons in the basement. In the basement you'll find a ping-pong table, foosball, tv/vcr/dvd (satellite TV), piano keyboard, kids toys (Barbies,etc.), and a washer and dryer.

The 5 wooded acres surrounding the house make for a serene setting. Mom can relax in the hammock while dad plays with the kids on the custom fort/swing with climbing wall and rope swing. Later, have a bonfire in the large fire pit. There is a cute front porch for enjoying that morning coffee and watching the blue birds sing 'good morning' and a large back deck with a Weber gas grill for making that perfect lunch or dinner. Enjoy midnight star-gazing that you'll never experience in the city or the suburbs; use our high-powered binoculars to observe birds and stars alike.

We think you'll thoroughly enjoy a stay at Sailaway Bay as we have for many years. We try our very best to keep our home well maintained and equipped for some good family fun (canoe, kayaks, play area, toys, movies, etc.).

Please note that during the summer months I only rent the home by the week.

About TC and Karen Chadwick

We love Sailaway Bay and have enjoyed it for many years. We chose our home because it was located on 5 peaceful acres in a small community with a deeded waterfront area where we built a boat house. We've watched our kids grow up enjoying the lake and now we're sharing it with other families at a very reasonable cost which is considerable less than that of a true waterfront rental.

Why TC and Karen Chadwick chose Virginia

Our home is a hybrid between a water-access home and a waterfront home. Our home is not on the water, but our boat house is on the water. So it affords guests a tranquil vacation experience with waterfront benefits at the cost of a water-access rental.

What makes this house unique

The five acres make the home extremely private and relaxing. We love getting our morning coffee and sitting on the front porch and watching the birds. In the evening, a camp fire with the stars is awesome. The boat house is great for swimming, kayaking, fishing and sunbathing. There is plenty of fallen wood for camp fires, a great play area with swings and a climbing wall with fort, a hammock, large back deck, 3 kayaks, 1 canoe, and a paddle boat.

Fabulous house

  • 4 of 5

There was so much for our grandkids to do--- playground, lots of toys/games, ping pong table, foosball table, to name a few. The dock with a separate screened room was fantastic with a canoe, several kayaks and a pedal boat.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

The home was thoughtfully appointed with everything that you need (and a few things you may have forgotten to pack). The boat house was terrific. The fishing was fantastic! We hired Chris McCotter of McCotter's Guide Service. The whole trip, while short, was fantastic.

Instant relaxation

  • 5 of 5

A home away from home. This place is so comfy and welcoming. It's like going to grandma's house with the bonus of a lake. It is located off of dike 3 and the water was perfect. We floated on rafts and used the kayaks. The boat house is perfect. It has shade for those that burn easy and a tanning area for the the sun lovers. Highly recommend this site. We used the basement area to do a family puzzle together and enjoyed hanging out playing ping pong. We did yoga in the cleared out wooded area where the fire pit was located which was very nice.

Perfect for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and the owners were communicative and very easy to coordinate with. Their home was perfect for a family with kids - with toys and DVDs, and games. Our family created a lot of memories here. The boat house was the perfect place to watch the fireworks with our private viewing and no worries on parking. We had endless fun at the lake - this was our first lake trip and it won't be the last! Thank you TC and Karen!

Everything you want for your week at the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

The house was welcoming as soon as you pulled in the driveway! Then to walk in to a clean and decorated place, Was were home for a week! The walk to the lake was a break in just sitting around it was a brisk walk to a great little get away on the lake. The deck was clean and inviting the little screened in porch was nice to have breakfast lunch and dinner. And then to wait for the surprise of each day! the Sunset. The add extras were nice, canoe kayaks books and board games. Wanted to take a venture to Waltons Mt. but maybe some day. The pictures did not lye ! Thank you for a great place,
