About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter, Oak Lodge is host to travelers the year 'round. The calendar is totally up to date, so be sure to get a week or two just for you and your family!

Can you imagine yourself surrounded in this solidly built Abe Lincoln Log Home - with a wall of windows overlooking the cove, whimsical yet contemporary decor, and with an open kitchen and living area topped by an enormous cathedral ceiling. The lighting design of the cathedral ceiling is spectacular - a delight at night!

After playing all day either on sun-drenched Kerr Lake with your own boat or one from the rental firms in town, or on a guided canoe trip, out shopping in nearby furniture craftsman towns, or visiting an historic Southern Plantation home, the family returns to Oak Lodge. In the gourmet kitchen everything is pleasing: stainless steel appliances, a double-sided refrigerator with an ice dispenser, a host of pots, pans, mixers, even that the exhaust vent for the stove raises and lowers from the countertop is delightful. While preparing your favorite meal, laughter fills Oak Lodge as the whole family shares about the day's events - these are the times that memories are made of!

After a great dinner, you pop open your favorite beverage, and with a full tummy, it's time for cards. Maybe it's time to sit alone on the Juliette Balcony to catch up on that book you've been carrying around for a few weeks. It might just be nap time on the hammock out on the deck, overlooking the cove ... your sweetheart could join you for that nap because the hammock is built to hold two adults - up to 650 pounds. It's your call at Oak Lodge.

Oak Lodge, built in 2008, is a 3,000 square foot, two-story walkout log home situated on a private cove on Kerr Lake. The home is nestled on a plot of land so that it maximizes the view of the cove, has a paved driveway and plenty of parking at the top of the driveway for two more cars and a trailer.

A perfectly decorated, spacious and clean home just waiting for you and your family. Log home, lake-front living at its finest.

On the main level, the grand living room with wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooks the wooded areas and private cove. You'll also find over 1400 square feet of outdoor deck space perfect for your family and friends; two private, screened-in porches provide - the perfect place for catching up with each other about the day's events. Downstairs is perfect for the kids and the kid in you! Large play area, plenty of room to kick back, TV, four sets of french doors leading to the expansive patio overlooking the water.

Did we mention the living room has a large HDTV with DVR and DVD player, the MBR has a TV, the second main-floor bedroom has a TV, and the downstairs living room has a TV. All TVs have over 200 stations of programming.

The Master Bedroom has a two-person, two shower-head, all slate tile shower - be sure to take time to enjoy!

All beds are high-quality, heavenly comfortable beds.

To make your relaxing, high quality family vacation even easier, we now offer credit card payment plans spreading your payments out over three easy payments with our new Easy-3-Payment Plan^. As an additional level of assurance, when paying by credit card, you may opt to purchase Trip Cancellation Insurance. So, relax, it's all taken care of, and your fun-in-the-sun, lake-front vacation is ready at Oak Lodge.

There is no better house on Kerr Lake at a better rate than Oak Lodge. You deserve the best ... now call to get your share!

^Easy-3-Payment Plan processing fee of $25 applies.
^^ Property Damage Insurance processing fee of $10 applies

Nearest Restaurant
Many good family-owned restaurants on Virginia Ave

Clarksville, Kerr Lake, and the surrounding area offers plenty of outdoor activities, historic sites, restaurants, antique shops, and an enormous lake with 800 miles of shoreline!

Do not miss getting out on the water - no boat? No problem, we can hook you up with a local rental company.

For a night out, Cooper's Landing is a local restaurant run by a couple - Les and Nicole Cooper. On Friday nights in the summer, they will often have local or regional musicians play on the patio while you dine on some of the best steaks you have ever had! If you miss a Friday, no worries - their food is delicious, and the house they have converted into the restaurant is unique. Go!

History buffs do not miss Prestwould Plantation, a National Historic Landmark, as it is the most intact and best documented plantation surviving in Southside Virginia. Most notably, the site has one of the largest collections of slave writings in the country.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: I am an American Sign Language Interpreter. When not working, I like escaping to Kerr Lake and getting out on the boat and jet skis. I have a dog and she goes with me everywhere, especially on vacation!

Why Merifield Acres (Clarksville, VA, USA):
We built Oak Lodge in 2008 because we wanted to have a vacation lake-house at Kerr Lake to share with others. It's just three hours from our home in Charlotte, NC, which is close enough to get away on a weekend, but far enough from the busy life so we know we really did get away. We also wanted it to be a log home because the feeling a log home evokes is unlike a regular house - all the wood provides a charm like nothing else can. The property we chose to build the house is on a cove, which is important because we wanted to be able to swim safely, and have our boat not be subjected to winds and wakes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
At Oak Lodge, we like the porches and the rustic luxury the house exudes. When we are there, we cook out on the grill a lot, and we enjoy going to Los Banditos for excellent Mexican food when the mood to cook just isn't there for us.
