Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We spent this past weekend in this home and had a wonderful weekend. We found everything in the home to be very clean and in working condition. The owner was very easy to work with and easy to contact. If you are looking to get away for a quiet, relaxing weekend, I can highly recommend Busbees Cove!

Fantastic time!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, restful and fun week. We had rented your place back in 2007 and had always wanted to come back. Our kids are grown now and we figured 2016 was the year to do this vacation again. We loved floating in the "hot" lake. One day we even had our own personal air show!!!! Coffee on the deck every morning was a great way to start the day and sitting by the fire was a fantastic way to end the day. We enjoyed our trip to the Lake Anna Winery. The peace and quiet was absolutely wonderful and we returned to the "real" world feeling rested. The property was clean and well maintained and I would recommend to friends and family. The hot tub was not working.....but who needs a hot tub when you have beautiful Lake Anna!!!!! Thanks again

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I am pleased to let you know that I was able to get the hot tub up and running again on the Saturday you checked out, but I do still need to replace one of the auxilary pumps and will do that the next time I am there. I also remounted the light string at the dock with stronger clamps so they can now be enjoyed by all! I hope to see you at our house again, and not so long between visits! Scott Kinne

Perfect Home for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We go to the lake every year for our family vacation. This home was great for families of all ages. I took my parents who are in their eighties and they were able to walk to the spacious pier and enjoyed the screened in area there. The home is furnished with comfortable furniture even the beds were great! The view from the house was spectacular and the sunset amazing. The home clearly exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend this vacation home.

Could not have asked for more. Stayed May 1 - 5, 2016

  • 5 of 5

The house design & layout is fantastic. The lot is nicely located at the end of the cove & protected from the weather by surrounding trees, while allowing a really great view of the lake from the main floor living space & the lower floor game room. We brought along 2 fishing boats, which were launched at the private ramp & fit nicely at the dock. Our group consisted of 3 retired couples. While the weather wasn't perfect, the stay was! The Bass fishing was fantastic! My wife & I have been coming to Lake Anna for several years looking for the right property to be our "go to" home. THIS IS IT! We will be back.

From the Owner

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!

Activity and Interests

There is plenty to do at Busbees Cove all year round. Come in

the summer for swimming, tubing and boating. Come in the fall to

enjoy the fall foliage or take a wine tour during harvest time. Come in the Winter to enjoy the Hot Tub and family gatherings. Come anytime to just relax, head out fishing, or watch for Eagles flying around the cove.

Nearby attractions include golfing, hiking and Kings

Dominion, or take time to visit Monticello, Charlottesville, or Fredericksburg, all

just a short distance away.

Boat rentals, jet ski rentals, and marina services are all available

on the Public Side of the lake.
