Lake Anna house description

This beautiful lakefront home is situated on an almost two acre wooded site overlooking a protected cove on the large public side of gorgeous Lake Anna. The sunsets in the evenings are magnificent as the sun settles below the treeline to the west with golden rays reflecting off the water.

Laurelin ('Song of Gold' in Tolkien's Old Elvish tongue) has plenty of room for entertaining and relaxing. A large den/family room has a 42 inch Phillips HD flat screen TV with Dish programming and DVD player for those needing a break from the water. The central kitchen is very nicely equipped and features a 'pass-through' to the den area.

There are three bedrooms, a sleeper sofa, bunk beds, and three full baths to easily accommodate ten people, as well as plenty of floor space for additional air beds if needed (there are two double airbeds provided). The master bathroom suite includes a two-person Jacuzzi tub as well as a large walk-in shower. French doors on both levels allow for great views of the lake.


Wi-Fi Internet Access/ Phone Service: Laurelin has it's own Wi-Fi 'hot spot' to allow guests to stay connected by smart phone or laptop computer during their visit. High speed internet service is provided through a HughesNet satellite system with wireless N600 dual-band router, and the WEP encryption access password will be provided upon guests' arrival.

Land line phone service with unlimited local and US long distance calling is also included at no additional cost.

                                    Laurelin is a wonderful, private property, snuggled back off an already private community road; lending itself to a very relaxing atmosphere. Bob the owner is fantastic. We arrived by boat about an hour early and he saw us down near the dock and came down to say hello. We promised we weren't staying, merely trying to locate the house from the drop location via water. He told us the place would be ready in 15 minutes, so we got in a few minutes early! The kitchen is well appointed, tons of spices, dishes, pans, etc... The rooms are all pretty standard. The master has a large bathroom and jet tub. They have a fantastic group of CDs to play as well as a huge Xbox360 library. The kids had a blast between Xbox and pool. Additionally, they have a book library, that I suspect you could bring a book and take a book; but I didn't spend anytime reading while there. The dock is great for hanging out, or fishing, although a bit tight if you have a boat 24'+ long, getting in and out was tricky (but doable). We had a 26' power boat, a 14' fishing boat, a 12' sailboat and a 10' jetski and it all fit at the dock! Not to mention tons of floats and tubes and fishing stuff. The walk from the house to the dock is a decent incline/decline and not paved, so it can be a bit slippery after rain. Not a big deal, just a something to keep in mind for people with special needs. Great exercise! The picture of the back of the house doesn't show the fire pit he added, we didn't get to use it, but it would have been fun had it not rained at night. The house feels much more like someones personal home than a rental home; they have many extras you don't usually see. Also, we brought our two dogs who had a blast. The house has no indications of previous dogs or dog messes/smells. Our only near miss incident was one of the dogs taking off to chase a deer the first night there! We would definitely come back to Larelin, it was a great week! Thanks for the wine Bob!

                                    We had a great time here. The house is absolutely wonderful. It held 5 adults and 2 kids very comfortably. The dock was great, in a quiet almost private little cover in a great place for the kids to be able to jump of the dock over and over again without the worry of boats coming through. Even though we were there during the hottest week of the summer, we still had a great time playing pool and sitting around talking. We loved how the kitchen opened up to the living room so everyone could stay connected and even playing the occasional game of trivial pursuit (guys vs. girls). We are looking forward to more visits there in the future.

                                    We loved our stay at this beautiful, fully equipped, pet-friendly home on Lake Anna. The owner was very helpful with directions and suggestions for restaurants and places to visit. We loved watching the many birds at the birdfeeder, and a walk in the quiet surrounding neighborhood produced a sighting of two Pileated Woodpeckers. We enjoyed a visit to Lake Anna Winery, Lake Anna State Park, and Spotsylvania Battlefield. The property is in close enough proximity to Fredericksburg to provide a busy day or two of sightseeing and shopping. Our next visit will be in spring or fall, when we can make use of the dock on the property for kayaking on the lake.

                                    Recommended for: Age 55+, pet owners, girls getaway, families with teenagers, romantic getaway, sightseeing.

                                    What a beautiful home!! Extremely well equipt with all the little extras. The owner could not have been more helpful. It was a special girls trip but we all agreed our husbands would definitely enjoy Lake Anna. This house would make any vacation, year around, special. It would definitely be a treat during season of the year:)

                                    This place was fabulous! The house/lake/area and location was perfect. We had 10 people from age 1 to 76, and a great time was had by all!! The lake was beatiful, good for swimming, canoeing or fishing. Even our two dogs had a blast swimming and hanging on the lake dock!The house was roomy, with a great deck to relax and hang out, as well as dine outside on.The entertainment room was popular, with pool being played till the wee hours most nights. Parking was spacious, which we needed for all the cars. Monticello was only an hour away, and a trip to their was memorable for us. The new Food Lion was sooo convienent, with great Pizza, Chinese & Subway next to it, as well as a "valuable" ABC store! We met the owner, Bob Harlow, who was so gracious and welcoming-so glad to have met him! There is lots to do in the Mineral area but the propery was so enoyable and relaxing that, other than the Monticello trip, we were content to stay here. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a great lakefront house to spend some quality time with loved ones! We will be back!!

                                    Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children, pet owners, adventure seekers, families with teenagers, romantic getaway.

                                    Laurelin proved to be everything we hoped for and more. The house is beautiful, clean,well maintained and laid out nicely.Everyone in my family had there own space. Very much appereciated by my adult children. The lake and the area in general are both beautiful and quiet. A nice change from the hustle and bustle of my part of Connecticut. The Food Lion just up the street is very convenient. This was our first stay in Virginia. We enjoyed it very much. The people we encountered were friendly, the state lovely and there is a great deal to do and see. Both the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania Battlefields are near by, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is outstanding, as is Monticello which is also quite close by. Skyline drive was also very nice. I would recommed Laurelin to anyone and hope to be back again sometime as we had a very relaxing and enjoyable visit.

                                    Thanks for checking in on us after the earthquake (5.9 earthquake at 1:53 pm on 8/23/11- Once in a lifetime!)and helping us through it with a couple of bottles of wine. We had a great time with the kids swimming and catching catfish from the dock and playing pool. A great family vacation!

                                    Thank you for sharing your home. We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was lovely. Spent our time boating, water skiing, fishing, relaxing (we keep our own boat at Lake Anna Boatel, so very convenient for us). The new Chinese restaurant next to Food Lion was good!

                                    The house and property were beautiful and a very relaxing atmosphere. We enjoyed having an opportunity to be with our adult children and their boyfriends. We rented a pontoon boat for a day of fishing and swimming, and spent a lot of family time playing pool, cards, and board games. Sturgeon Creek Marina and Duke Marina were very helpful, and Food Lion was very convenient.

                                    The house was really nice and very roomy. Loved the warm lake and the rafts to float on. Used the dock every day (all day long!). Great for kids and adults. Everyone in the area was very friendly and the new Food Lion was very handy, as we mostly ate at the house. Also enjoyed the wine. Will definitely consider coming back!
