We upgrade and update every year to ensure a great experience for our guests.

Best Family Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

We would like to add our voices to the chorus of excellent reviews of Deer Beach Lodge--our family reunion/birthday celebration week was a spectacular success and great fun for all three generations. We swam, kayaked, pontoon-boated, ate too much, and played many, many games for a week of wonderful memories.

The house is perfect for a large group and gave us each enough privacy along with plenty of room when we wanted to be together--which was most of the time. It was exceptionally clean and well-equipped with everything we needed for the week (we used Lake Anna Linens rental and would recommend them as well).

Great place for family memories.

  • 5 of 5

Dear beach was the best equipped home I have ever stayed at. The home was clean inside and out. My family enjoyed the beach area that was easy for the little ones to play along the waters edge. I would stay here again and would recommend it for a relaxing vacation.

Our family of three generations stayed in the house for one week. We have been renting for over thirty years and I can honestly say this was the best house we have ever rented. It was spotless, had enough room for the 14 of us and and we all enjoyed the watercraft.

Awesome Lake Home!

  • 5 of 5

Deer Beach Lodge is the perfect getaway home for families looking for a serene place to make beautiful memories. Our family of nine just spent a long weekend there and everyone, ages 7 through 73, had a wonderful and relaxing time. The home is exactly as listed on the VRBO website. The lake, fire pit, beach, theater room, kitchen and comfortable bedrooms were exceptional. Joel was a pleasure to work with and I give this home a high recommendation. Everyone in the family gave a rave review!!

Beautiful home on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

It's rare to rent a home that looks exactly like the pictures - this is a beautiful home. The beach was great for the little ones and everyone enjoyed the boats - a definite plus. After a day of swimming we all gathered in the projection room to watch a movie on the reclining leather sofas. The house comes supplied with basic amenities like detergent, paper towels, and hand soap which is very convenient. Would definitely recommend - we all had a wonderful time!

Beautiful Home on Lake Anna

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful log style home on Lake Anna has been a favorite for our family to spend a weeks vacation at for many years now. The home is very well maintained, always very clean upon arrival, and has all the amenities a family could want! The large beach/swimming area is great for the kids, as well as the adults! Having a private dock area for our boat is a must. An outside fire pit for roasting marshmallows and hotdogs certainly makes for happy kids! ;-) The large eat out deck and large dining table is perfect for our extended family of 9. Oh, and I can't forget the movie theatre room is a huge plus for nights and rainy days! ;-)

Car: necessary

There is plenty to do at Deer Beach Lodge all year round. Come in the summer for swimming, tubing and boating. Come in the fall to enjoy the fall foliage or take a wine tour during harvest time. Come anytime to just relax or head out fishing.

Deer Beach Lodge has over 175 feet of shoreline as well as a natural sand beach with natural shallow water walking off the sand. Just a great place for children.

Nearby attractions include golfing, hiking and Paramount Kings Dominion Amusement Park or take time to visit key historical US sites including Monticello or Charlottesville all just a short distance away.

Boat rentals, jet ski rentals, and marina services are all available nearby and will deliver right to our boat launch.

For shoppers, Fredericksburg's and Richmond's shopping malls are just 35 to 45 minutes away. Antiquing is everywhere along the county roads all around the Lake Anna area.

Hiking is available in the Lake Anna State Park.
