About Scott Kinne

Scott is a VP at First Heritage Mortgage and has provided Residential loans to client in VA, MD, DC, & WV for the last 28 years. Brenda is an Assistant Kindergarten teacher in Fairfax County for the last 9 years and was previously Director of Operations for a large corporate travel company where she worked for 20 years. We have been married over 32 years and have two beautiful children who love spending time at the lake with friends!

Scott Kinne purchased this house in 2004

Why Scott Kinne chose Virginia

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!

The house was very nice and there was plenty of room for all 8 of us. It was nice to have a bathroom for each bedroom. The view was beautiful and we have some great pictures taken by my nephew. The lake was a little too warm but Scott told me about an area that had water a bit cooler. He was informative and helpful about the house and area. The ice maker was a plus and the kitchen is well stocked with dishes, etc. for cooking. I would recommend this property

Fantastic vacation !

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation at Busbee's Cove. The house was perfect for us. We were a group of 2 families consisting of 2 adults and 4 children. There was plenty of room for all of us. The family room had great views of the lake and plenty of seating for all. The kids loved the game room and spent the one rainy day we had playing pool and air hockey. The kitchen was big and well stocked with all the things we needed. The location on the lake was so convenient. The kids spent hours upon hours swimming off the dock and fishing. Being able to keep the wave runners we brought on the property was especially convenient as well. We highly recommend this beautiful property on Lake Anna !

Busbees Cove - A fun family vacation at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to Busbees Cove so that in itself tells you we love it! There is the relaxing furniture inside and out and plenty of room so nobody is falling over each other and privacy is easy to come by. The kitchen table is wonderful for family games in the evenings and the large living room table allowed the whole gang to help with puzzles. Plenty of indoor activities with the pool table, foosball, and air hockey too. Nobody had time to be bored! The owner is always a pleasure to work with and we look forward to returning again. If you are looking for a fantastic family home this is the place for you!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We used this home for family members to stay during our family reunion at our lake house nearby. The home was beautifully decorated and very well maintained, the pictures don't do it justice! Great water views and the kids loved playing in the water by the dock. Everything we could have asked for! It was very easy to work with the owners renting it and was a smooth check in and check out. Thanks Scott!

Amenities Galore & Mid-Lake Location is a Winner!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Busbees Cove before and we keep coming back because it has all the amenities for our family. We love having the boat ramp on site and having the house close to the water. You get awesome lake views from the home and deck which instantly relieves any stress! The game room plus bunk bedroom downstairs means the teens and kids can stay downstairs almost exclusively giving you peace and quiet! The owner is great to work with. We opted for the linen service (first time ever after 13 years of renting on the lake each summer) and I highly recommend it. No loads and loads of laundry when you go home! We also love the mid-lake location of Busbees Cove. We are 10 minutes to a grocery store. We are 10 minutes by boat to either end of the private side so we just come and go all day long as we please! For this size bdrm/bathroom house, the rental price is great compared to other private side rentals. We keep coming back to this winner because its clean, affordable, quiet, and has something for everyone!
