Recent Lake Anna reviews

  • Great vacation home and we had memorable times

    "The property was a beautiful home with lots of room. House is clean and looked like recently constructed. There is a huge backyard to put fire place and had lake access. Incidentally the property owner was present next to this rental place during our stay and we were extremely pleased and very grateful for having to meet with them. Not sure if I could share this here, but it so happened that however hard we tried to get a boat rental during our stay,we could not get one due to long weekend time. Our party included lots of kids who were so disappointed that they could not get to go on a boat ride, when we casually expressed this to the owner they graciously offered a ride on their personal boats for all us, we have no words to express our gratitude as our kids and elders get to go on a ride when we thought we almost have to come back without boat ride. In addition the owners also shared their fire works with our kids and helped us setting up fire and making sure the kids had a blast during the fire works night. Overall we had an excellent and would highly recommend this place."

  • Great family vacation home

    "Sixteen of us we in this house and had room to spare. Wonderful house, well equipped with plenty of deck chairs. We had a place on Deep Creek Lake in Md and sold it because of the lake traffic. This location was perfect, quiet and very little boat traffic. Swimming, boating and fishing right off the dock. Kids had fun catching LARGE catfish. No body wanted to clean them so they were released for the next family. Had a problem with air conditioning and repair man was there within the hour."

  • Great lake house for all ages

    "We had a family get together at this lake house and it was wonderful. All ages from 1 to 80 enjoyed the house in their own way. The kids had so much fun down by the lake, jumping off the dock, trying to catch fish, and sitting by the fire-pit. The older family members relaxed on the outdoor screened in porch and watched the fun from a quiet distance. During the whole week we stayed we barely saw anyone, it was as if we had the lake to ourselves and the water was incredibly warm. The house was remarkably clean and well cared for. It is extremely homey and comfortable with a spacious open floor plan downstairs. The owner has thought of every tiny convenience one can think of to make the vacation that less stressful. Everyone LOVED the outdoor shower as well. If you are looking for a relaxing week - i highly recommend staying here."

  • Wonderful place!

    "This is a GREAT place for a large family gathering. Kayaking, paddle boating, swimming .... plus lots of living space for playing games in the evening. There's a nice fire pit to toast weenies and marshmallows too. We're coming back! This was already our second visit."

Lake Anna Travel Tips

200 Miles of Shoreline Perfect at Lake Anna Vacation Rentals

Located just 18 miles to the west of I-95, Lake Anna is around halfway between Richmond, VA and Washington DC. It is also easily accessible from both Richmond and Charlottesville. This man-made, freshwater lake is 17 miles long with over 200 miles of shoreline. It is Virginia’s second biggest lake and one of its most popular vacation areas.

What to Do on the Lake

Lake Anna condos are rapidly becoming increasingly popular as vacation destinations. The lake itself is certainly the big attraction. It offers excellent sailing, superb fishing and much more. The fishing enthusiasts head to the north side for the wide variety of fish such as several species of bass, bluegill, catfish, crappie, walleye, white and yellow perch. Fishing is so popular that there are local leagues and tournaments to join in with. Those looking to get out on the water will find boat rentals are readily available. The best place for sailing is to the south of the lake where the wide open water provides a great area. While those who are looking for water sports will find the area around the middle of the lake the place to be.

Lake Anna State Park stretches out from the shore and visitors will find this a great place to picnic. It provides launch facilities for boats that are available to the public. There is also a snack bar on the beach as well as an exhibition about the creation of the lake. Within the park, there is mile after mile of hiking and horseback riding trails. Also in the park are the remnants of the old Goodwin Gold Min and visitors may enjoy panning for gold here. While in the park, visitors will want to see the remains of the old plantation house which is easily accessible along one of the hiking trails.

Discover the History of America

Around Lake Anna vacation houses are also a variety of wonderful day trip options. The region is steeped in the history of the United States, particularly the Civil War era. Just a 30-minute drive away is one of the country’s most historic cities, Fredericksburg, dating from 1737. Here, visitors will find fascinating colonial period buildings alongside a delightful selection of stores and restaurants. It really is a charming place to spend a day.

Not far from here is the boyhood home of the first President, George Washington. The site of his boyhood home is at Ferry Farm, where the legend of him chopping down a Cherry Tree began. You'll also find the Rappanhannock River where he threw the silver dollar across it. Visit Washington’s mother’s home and the area where some of the worse battles of the Civil War were fought at Sunken Road at Marye’s Heights. Head to Spotsylvania National Military Park where there are over 5,500 acres of famous battle sites, including Chancellorsville, Old Salem Church and the Stonewall Jackson Shrine, marking the spot where he died. At Staunton, visitors will enjoy the Frontier Culture Museum where they can learn more about the life of the pioneers. This living history museum encompasses four farms. While in the area, take a trip to Montpelier to visit the home of James Madison, the fourth President and "Father of the Constitution."
