Why Gary Jacobsen chose Virginia

This home is lakefront property on the main portion of Lake Anna--directly across from the Lake Anna State Park. It is situated in Mineral, VA--NOT in Livingston, VA (incorrect statement on the VRBO listing).

Perfect for a weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

The yard is spacious and the lake view was nice (faces state park across the water). Caught a nice bass from the shore as well as some bluegill. Perfect for a relaxing weekend.

My Lake Anna vacation

  • 5 of 5

I had the most wonderful time here at this waterfront vacation home ! It turned out 10 times better than I could ever have hoped for. The spectacular views of the lake from the house and out on the deck were breathtaking. The house was spotless and clean. Everything in good working order. The cove on the back of the property where the boat and pier were ... was my favorite spot to swim. I loved the fact that there were few trees in front of the rental ... to allow for the great views of the lake from all spots in the house. I am looking forward to coming back again !!

Blissful Serenity

  • 5 of 5

Our small family of 4 simply loved this place! The cabin was clean, cozy and inviting! Everything you need to enjoy a wonderful time with the Love of Your Life and children! Even a lantern in the closet when a thunderstorm knocks out the electric at night. The lightning display over the lake was "beautiful" as we sat on the comfy leather sofa and watched in awe!! Grilling on the deck is another plus. While flipping hamburgers you can be entertained with all the activity on the water or an occasional splash of a fish, trying to lure a fisherman to the shoreline! Views of the lake are absolutely stunning... whether you're in or out of the cabin!! The short walk to the private dock is prefect for swimming, fishing, reading, or taking off in your own boat to explore the wonders of Lake Anna! The owners are great people to work with and respond very quickly if you have any questions! Hope to return again & make more memories!

We had a really wonderful time here. The house is great with a very relaxing view- on the water with boats speeding by. We also went to the children's beach in the community to go to the lake - really nice with a good playground - we had a 2-year old with us. Very enjoyable.
