Lake Anna house description
Heron House in Rose Valley Coves on Lake Anna in Mineral Virginia is a beautiful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Nestled between Northern Virginia and Richmond, it's the perfect weekend get-away or a great place to spend a week fishing, swimming, boating, or just relaxing.
The main level of the house has three bedrooms that overlook the water with queen beds in two and two twin beds in the other. There are two baths on the main level. The basement has one bedroom that overlooks the water with a double/full bed and another bedroom with three sets of bunkbeds. There is a shared bath in the basement.
Outside you'll find two huge decks that overlook the lake with furniture for eating and relaxing; a boat house with parking for a boat and jet-ski, a water trampoline, and a dock with a swim ladder so that you can enjoy swimming in the quiet cove. At night, you can roast marshmallows and tell ghost stories by the fire pit out back or enjoy a movie on the TVs in both living rooms - upstairs and down.
More information on the house and additional pictures can be found by scrolling down the page to the area after the Rates that says 'Links to More Information'.
Area marinas offer boat and jet ski rentals. Boat tie downs are available on the dock. The boat lift is not available for tenant use, but the Jet Ski lift is. Water depth at the end of the dock is around 8 feet.
Sorry - No large parties, reunions, or weddings. Please keep to the maximum occupancy of 16.

The house was exactly what we expected: clean, large, and accommodating. The kitchen is massive, housing every appliance and utensil necessary. The living room was very enjoyable for movies, games, and watching the fight Saturday night. Several "master" bedrooms upstairs housed king or queen beds, while the bunk bed room in the basement slept the remainder of our crew. The basement offered another great entertainment area, stocked with a pool table, air hockey, and a slot machine. Several couches and a big screen TV made this an ideal spot for relaxing. Although the water was cold, the dock and boat house were inviting. Sitting out here in the mornings was peaceful and relaxing. Appropriate depth and location for dock fishing too. The back yard, two-story deck, and fire pit provided the ideal hang out during the days. This house was truly incredible during the Off-Peak season, which begs the questions, how amazing is this property during Peak Season? Highly recommended, will stay and rent again. Owners were very friendly and helpful throughout the entire rental process.

I have to say, I was not impressed with the house. The owners stated that it was fully equipped. Not having a dishwasher on Thanksgiving weekend for 15 people in a small kitchen really doesn't constitutes fully equipped. The pictures shown are not accurate. Looks can be deceiving. The cleanliness of the house and fixing up broken windows,screens, doors and kitchen are seriously overdue. My husband had to use his own blower to blow three weeks of leaves that were on the deck, just to get in and out with kids. You can tell no one has been there for awhile. Next time I plan to have owners lay out a description of everything in the house and if possibly do a drive by. Otherwise our family had a wonderful time despite the house.

Owner response: In the house’s defense – it is on a 1 acre wooded lot and is a lake house so bugs are prevalent. This is off season for the house so not as much use as the summer and will be longer in between cleanings and visitors. When we use the house in the fall / winter we usually have to sweep the leaves off the decks because it’s so heavily wooded. We find the small kitchen to be cozy and do plan to add an automatic dishwasher over the next year. We’ve used the opportunity to have our children, nieces, and nephews be the dishwashers and pitch in to help the family. We do appreciate the feedback and are glad that this family had a wonderful time in the end!

Our families had a fantastic vacation together at the Heron House in Lake Anna! We did exactly what the property description says and more: fished, swam, relaxed, watched movies, went boating, jetskiing, wakeboarding ++++. The house was actually nicer and roomier than the pictures reflect. We would definitely go back!

I couldn't do the house justice in a little comment box. We had everything we needed, the process was painless and the house was absolutly perfect! I can't imagine how much fun it would be in the warm weather since we went in the winter. Definitly recommend the house and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

It was even better than we hoped for. The view is wonderful. The heron was in the cove all weekend. We fished and swam and saw lots of wildlife. The house is just right. Beth & Ed
