Turtle Cove - Waterfront- Private Boat House

Excellent! 4.7/5 -
(15 traveler reviews)


Property Details

Updated: Aug 22, 2016
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, sleeps 14

More pictures on Facebook, search Turtle Cove Lake-Anna. Located on the priviate side of Lake Anna, Turtle Cove is a quiet retreat for anyone wishing to get

away from it all! The home is nestled in the woods with approximately 100' of waterfront directly on Lake Anna.

Since this home is located on the private or 'warm' side of Lake Anna, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the water early in spring and late into the fall. In August, the water does get warm, however, a short boat ride to cooler portions of the lake will help to cool you off on those hot summer days!

The private side of Lake Anna is considerably quieter than the public side. You will find that on most days, there is very little boat traffic and you will feel as though you 'own' the entire lake.

Great getaway. Private, fun.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The house is very nice and clean and spacious. We had a blast. The 'Barn' is such a great feature! Game room, a great place to gather at night. Our family used it every night. We could not believe how warm the Lake was! Love the property, with all the trees! We enjoyed the fire pit. We had some rain a couple of days, but we were still out by the water. As for the TV, we only turned it on twice, to watch a couple of movies. Everyone had such a good time. One thing though. It would have been nice to have a dock ladder to get in and out of the water. Other than that, great summer rental. Thanks!

Great for my family to have fun and relax

  • 5 of 5

Turtle Cove was the perfect destination for our family vacation! The house itself was beautiful. There was plenty of room for the 3 adults, 4 kids (ages 7 to 17), and 2 dogs we had! Actually more than enough room! With the home being right on the water we had plenty to do!! We were able to stay busy the whole time and not one of the 4 kids complained about being bored even once which is a miracle if anyone has kids!! With the home being close to many boat rental places, since we didn't bring a boat we were able to rent one without an issue! Also the home is close to a grocery store, dollar store, and gas stations so if you need anything it's very convenient! We were also able to make it into the big city of Fredricksburg for some shopping one day (and this was a short drive away from the house also!) I hope my family will return to Turtle Cove again soon!!

First place we've ever stayed where you had to bring your own sheets and towels. Probably nice at one time but now old tv, broken pool cues etc. Expensive for what you get.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that your vacation was not up to your standards. Many vacation rentals do require you to bring your own towels and linens and this is very clearly stated in the rental agreement. The pool cues have been replaced and I suppose the TV is not the latest model. It does only receive stations with the antenna, not cable or satellite, and we realize this could be an issue for some guests. However, we would hope that by having the lake in your backyard, the TV wouldn't be as much of an issue. Again, we are sorry to learn that you were disappointed. We truly do love it when people have an enjoyable vacation and are happy with the home.

Spacious, clean, comfortable home. Bunk bed mattresses uncomfortable. Other ones good.

We enjoyed our five day stay at Turtle Cove immensely. There was plenty of room for 10 of us and lots to do. Some even swam and it was over Thanksgiving and we canoed, enjoyed campfires by the lake, played games in the barn rec room, and relaxed indoors. The TV was never even turned on!!!! The area is quiet and conducive to family reunions. Kathryn was very accommodating and helpful every time I emailed her and answered all my questions immediately. A great grocery store is less than 10 minutes away. I would definitely return to Turtle Cove for another family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at the Turtle Cove......and it almost feels like second home now. The house is clean, homey, relaxing....when you come in it feels like it is extending its welcoming arms to you!

The deck outside is huge, atop the trees overlooking Lake Anna; thelake and its toys are warm and inviting. The kids loved the fire pit......everybody loved the kitchen and dining area 😀

The owners are just wonderful people! Very easy to deal with.....I cannot stress enough how how we love this house. Watch out, John and Kathy, my friends are planning to buy this place from you! 😉😍😀 lol

Overall, it is a happy place to be, and we can't wait to be back again!

Turtle Cove

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time. Turtle Cove had so much to offer. We swam and skiied in the warm water. In the evening we had a nice relaxing fire. Also, we enjoyed hanging out in the barn with family and friends playing pool and foose-ball. Turtle Cove is warm and inviting.
