About Scott Kinne

Scott Kinne purchased this house in 2004

Why Scott Kinne chose Bumpass

When we decided to purchase a lake house at Lake Anna, we search the entire lake, both sides, for nearly a year trying to find the right property with nice deep water, without success. We then focused our desires on building the house of our dreams, and spent another year looking for the right land to buy. When we first found this lot it was fully wooded, but we had a vision of what could be achieved, and are now ecstatic about how it turned out. There are still a few items we will need to add to make it perfect for our retirement home, but we are extremely happy with it, and everyone who visits has great things to say. In the near future, we will probably be adding a detached garage with separate living quarters above it, along with an outdoor kitchen area and covered ceiling below the deck to allow enjoyment outside even in the rain!

What makes this house unique

When you arrive at the house, you will be greeted by the large wall of windows looking out to the lake. As you wander downstairs you will again be greeted by a large wall of windows to make sure that no lake activities will be missed, while still enjoying all the games provided indoors!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you! I had an awesome 40th Birthday! Your house is beautiful & the water views are so nice with the color change of the leaves. I couldn't ofasked for a better b-day. It was a fabulous girls weekend spent with twelve incredible women. We had so much fun laughing, eating & drinking. We made good use of the game tables & Karaokee machine. This is a birthday that I will treasure. Thnks for the wonderful new memories made this weekend!

Stayed at Busbees cove for a long weekend with my parents and my 2 kids (7 and 11) for our annual family spring getaway to lake Anna we have been doing for 5 years now. It was nothing short of spectacular. The house is absolutely gorgeous and very well maintained inside and out. Showed no signs of wear and tear like most all vacation rental homes do. Having the boat ramp on the property made launching our boat a lot less of a hassle and was also very nice for the kids to just walk right in the water from land. We spent the entire day and deep into the night at the dock the entire weekend. Having the screened in porch with the fan and the mini fridge in the screen in area on the dock was very convenient for drinks and snacks when coming off the water and not wanting to walk back up to the house. The property is very centrally located and it’s a short boat ride to just about any spot on the warm side of the lake. Being in the back of the cove no passing boat traffic near the dock was great for the kids to be able to swim and kayak without worry of boat traffic. The house was well equipped with everything in the kitchen area needed to cook. The views of the lake from inside the house were great. The downstairs game area was more then enough to keep people entertained. The owner Scott was very easy and friendly to deal with. Thank you to the Kinne family for sharing your beautiful home with us. We will be renting this house every year for this annual family trip!

Lovely home with wonderful views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this vacation property! The cove was beautiful on Lake Anna! It was great for everyone to swim and enjoy the views. The screened in porches were really nice. The game tables were a plus and plenty of shaded parking. The owner was great with response time for the couple of questions we had.

The PERFECT Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

Once again, this house was perfect for our get-away with friends! We have been to this house several times, and I am sure we'll be back again! The layout of the house is perfect for a larger group, and it has everything you could want for a fun get away - hot tub, karaoke, games, fire pit and more! I love the location on the lake because the views are great and you feel like you have some privacy being set back in the cove. More than anything, the owner is extremely helpful and provides swift replies to questions. I highly recommend this property for your Lake Anna vacation!

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! Upon arrival you take in the beauty of lake views and how homey and inviting the house is! The weather was unseasonably warm but muggy and rainy when we arrived so we spent a lot of time on the screened in porch which was fantastic. It got much cooler the next day and the fireplaces really warm up the place quick. We were sad we didnt get to use the fire pit but we dared ourselves to go out in the brutal cold and use the hot tub. (SO worth it!!!) and we warmed up really nicely coming in to the basement area after our dip with the fireplace going. We just had so much fun because the house is so comfortable and there is plenty of space to gather. We also visited Cooper Winery on Saturday which was a short 20 minute or so drive. We had such a fantastic time here that we want to come back again soon! Thank you Kinne family for sharing such a wonderful space and making guests feel at home!
