"We went as a group of 14 people with 3 families (8 children 4 and under). We fit comfortable in the house!
**Review of the lake - the lake is awesome. The intake temp was 84 and the discharge temp was 98 which made a nice 88-93 degree lake depending on where you were. Our cove was maybe on the cooler side (88), but our kids were in the water at 8am when it was 67 degrees outside. They LOVED it. We thought the lake was a great size and it wasn't busy at all. We rarely ran in to another boat during the week and on the weekends - maybe 3-5 boats. All watersports were great!
***Review of the house - this house was perfect for our families. Each of the parents had a room to themselves (upstairs master, upstairs queen and downstairs queen). We each had a child in with us (pack n plays and closets - the downstairs closet fit the pack in play perfectly). Master bath was great - huge shower and large jet tub. Four kids shared the bunk room and then one child was in the twin room. You cannot hear much downstairs except foot traffic from above. The kitchen is well stocked with spices, utensils and extra stuff like a crock pot, large roasting pan, parge pot, etc. There was nothing that we wished we had. The dining room we only used for lunch - kids ate at the picnic table and adults ate in the screened in porch which was awesome. Plenty of room. Living room was only used for naps during the day and a puzzle but was more spacious than the photos lead you to believe. The downstairs was great for a playroom - we mainly used it for movies in the afternoon and evening. There is a wet bar with a mini fridge down there. There is a bathroom, laundry room, and storage room that has a regular fridge (good for beer/drinks, extra food).
***Outside - the outdoor space was great - the sand beach and kayaks were a hit. We made a few fires for s'mores. What made this house so perfect for us was the "zero-entry" beach into the water. The beach slopes to a comfortable 4-5ft by the END of the dock. Like I said, the water is clear and so letting our beginning swimmers play around was perfect. The dock was spacious and it was so nice to have a covered boat slip. The extenion of the dock into the water (L-shape) made it a perfect "swimming zone" boundary for our kiddos. The boathouse had life jackets, paddles, tables, chairs and electricity for music down by the lake.
***We will abdsolutey be returning to Lake Anna and can't find a better house than this!"

"Just a quick review. This is the second stay at Tips Inn for my group of about 7 family and extended family. We love the water. The warm side of Lake Anna in May is perfect. Water temps already in the 70's and 80's. The house is always clean. My only need to contact the rental coordinator was to inquire about an extended stay. She responded in minutes, not hours. I have nothing even remotely negative to say. Spacious house. Superb location. Strongly consider this property. You will not regret it."

"We had a wonderful vacation in Richmond! The location of the house is perfect for accessing all there is to do downtown, the Fan, Careytown, and beyond. We walked to many wonderful restaurants! The house itself is beautiful as well as comfortable. I would love to stay there on our next visit!"

"what a wonderful week we had! The accommodations were great...loved sitting on the covered deck with the ceiling fans watching the sun rise and set! Took most of our meals outside there also! Beds were a bit hard, bathrooms beautiful and kitchen well stocked. Could use a griddle! Loved the location with all the docks....the ladder on the property dock was a bit hard to climb up, but easy access to other dock ladders made it easy to be in and out of water. Never ran out iof hot water and loved having two fridges! Hope to be back next year!"
