Property description

Our home at Lake of the Woods has a large, partially wooded yard, with over 100 feet of lake frontage, a grassy front lawn, and a private dock located at the end of a deep water, private quiet cove. Go boating on the Lake in one of our two supplied kayaks or our stand-up paddle board (SUP), use the paddle boat, or go on a bike ride on one of our many supplied bikes. Golf on the private Lake of the Woods PGA course, or at nearby Meadows Farms. Relax in the hammock beneath the trees, play croquet on the lawn, read while sitting on the screened-in porch, or wind down in the hot tub. Play pool or have a game of darts in the game room. The house is warm and inviting, with natural wood walls throughout. Recent renovations include all windows and sliding panoramic doors; outdoor siding; hardwood floors in the dining room, living room and game room; and ceramic tile flooring in the kitchen and baths. On cool evenings, fire up the indoor gas fireplace while you watch a movie on the 50 inch flatscreen HD television. Use the Weber gas grill on the deck to cook your steaks, or if you were lucky, your fresh catch from the lake. Or if you don't want to cook, there are a variety of restaurants just outside of the gate (as well as at the Clubhouse), and in nearby Fredericksburg. The property is close enough to Washington, DC or Richmond to allow for sightseeing day trips.

There is so much to do at our home in Lake of the Woods! Ride a bike on one of the many paved trails at the lake. Swim, float or sun on the lake. Fish off the dock (fishing poles provided). Go golfing on the lake's private 18 hole, par 71 PGA course, or go out the back gate to Meadows Farm Golf Course, home of the Nation's longest hole. For a complete listing and description of the lakes' amenities, go to

History buffs will enjoy the various civil war battlefields, including Chancellorsville, Wilderness (which adjoins Lake of the Woods), Spotsylvania Court House, and Fredericksburg. Ellwood Manor, where Stonewall Jackson's arm is buried, is nearby. Rent canoes or kayaks in Fredericksburg, and take a scenic trip down the Rappahannock River. Bald eagles are almost always spotted! Go take a hike on nearby Skyline Drive, in Shenandoah National Park, or spend the day at Kings Dominion (just north of Richmond) riding roller coasters. Have a craving for fresh soft shell crabs or oysters? Go south about an hour to Virginia's Northern Neck. Or visit Richmond or Washington, DC, both of which are just over an hour away. Please note that you may not use your own boat at Lake of the Woods.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We are full-time residents of Northern Virginia. I work in Washington, DC. My wife teaches pre-school, and my son is attending James Madison University.

Why the Owner Chose Fredericksburg:
The water activities in the Summer, enjoying the fall colors in the Fall, the greenery and flowers in the Spring, and curling up with a good book in front of the fireplace in the Winter. And fishing, golfing, hiking and exploring year round! Truly a 'Four Season' property!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love Lake of the Woods proximity to the various towns and cities(Washington, DC, Richmond, Fredericksburg, Culpeper and Orange) and our primary residence, the lake and all that it has to offer, and the occasional wildlife sightings. It's not unusual to see hawks, herons, eagles, and many other birds. Golfers will love the proximity to the Lake of the Woods course, and to the nearby Meadows Farms course. Everyone can enjoy fishing off our dock or bulkhead.
