Peace and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Blue Water Retreat at Lake Anna and the owners could not have been more accommodating and understanding when they learned we needed to stay at the home longer than anticipated.

There were several things we liked about our stay; the owners were awesome, convenience to the lake and boat ramp, cooking marshmallows in the big fire pit in the back yard, plenty of land space to play games and bocce ball, quiet and peaceful, and going to restaurants by boat or land. It was the perfect little getaway.

The house was very clean, simple, but welcoming.

If you are looking for a peaceful, family oriented getaway, I'd highly recommend staying at Blue Water Retreat at Lake Anna.

The Coziest Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This house is located in a very quite and friendly neighborhood. The cabin is adorable, and welcoming, and sits on a nice little plot of land equipped with a fire pit and a very short trail to the beach/lake area.

Laura and Jeff are the best for opening up their home to us for our family vacation. Very friendly and such a great experience renting with them! Highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to vacation at Lake Anna!

Cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, we walked down the lake front first thing in the morning to watch the sunrise. The neighborhood is very family and dog friendly located in a cul de sac. The check-in and check-out process was smooth and we will come back again.

Exactly what the Dr ordered

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a quiet place for R&R and this was perfect. A quaint little place in the country. The who experience from beginning to end was as smooth as possible. Laura and Jeff make it as easy as possible, and are available if needed to answer any concerns the little beach was perfect for my two little ones to enjoy. I will definitely be going back in the future.

Wonderful home and great hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this lovely and charming home. It's beautiful inside with everything we need, the lake is located behind the back yard with 3 boat ramps in the gated community. This house is close to the Lake Anna state park. Our children loved swimming in the private community beach and roasting marshmallows at the fire pit in the backyard. It was perfect for our family and the owner made reservation experience seamless from start to finish. We would highly recommend it and plan on returning.
