About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps up to 4 adults and 4 children

Come stay on the Private Side of Lake Anna in this well appointed lake-access country home on 5 wooded acres with waterfront boat house. Take a five minute stroll (500 yards) or short drive to our community's low-traffic cove on Lake Anna where you'll find your very own private boat house with parking for 2 vehicles. Enjoy the boat house's screened porch and large vinyl-decked swim platform w/ladder (no splinters); have a campfire down on the 50 x 50 waterfront parcel where we have a fire ring w/grill. Our community has only 13 homes, all on one or more acres, making for a very private and peaceful experience. 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 American Eagles that frequent the area. 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. Please note that during the summer months I only rent the home by the week.

This 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, frig with icemaker & filtered water, 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, fuseball, 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 and old weber charcoal grill for making that perfect lunch or dinner. Enjoy midnight star-gazing that you'll never experience in the city or suburbs.

Nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This worked out great. Enjoyed swimming and kayaking from the boat house. The beds in the 2 bedrooms where very comfortable. We had a nice bond fire that evceryone gathered around to cook hot dogs and marshmellows. The basement with all the games and TV where great the grandchildren and quest that visited us during the 3 weeks we where there. We have many great memories because this home and all it's amenities made for a perfect vacation.

First Time Visit to Lake Anna

  • 5 of 5

This was our first but not our last visit to Lake Anna. If you want to get away from the DC rat race, this place will take you there. The house was clean and very well equipped, all we needed was the food and linens. Our children loved the use of the kayaks. It was our youngest child's first time in one and she was a natural. Mr. Chadwick's recommendation to have his neighbor take us out on the lake fishing was spot on. He knew exactly where to go and as my wife said "has the patience of a saint" as he took me, my son and his friend out fishing (two 10 year old boys)and remained calm the entire time!!! They caught their fill of fish and had the time of their lives doing it. We were only able to stay for a few day so we look forward to our next visit which will definitely be much longer.
