Great place and great service

  • 5 of 5

We showed up for the July 4th weekend and the house was clean and comfortable.

The owners followed up the following morning to be sure that everything was working well.

The WIFI was great despite being in a remote location.

We would definitely recommend this place.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family was looking for a relaxing vacation spot to de stress and enjoy time together. Everyone had a great time. The house is adorable and had plenty of room for all of us. The views of the lake from the dock were amazing. Although we were all refreshed from our time spent at Blue Water Retreat we hated to leave and decided we would definitely be back next year.....hopefully for a little longer!

Birthday Week

  • 4 of 5

Very quiet and comfortable. The Cabin is on a Very quiet street with Very little to no traffic. Perfect Cabin for dogs. We brought two small dogs ZUES and ABBY. The hallway is long enough to throw a ball from the couch to the front door (inside exercise for rainy days). The price was Great due to the fact that you can walk through the back yard and swim 20 feet to the public beach. Great open floor plan and open balcony upstairs for easy fellowship. Restaurant's and stores very easy to access. I would absolutely stay again.

Great Cabin, Great weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was comfortable and roomy enough for 4 adults and 2 kids. The owners were very responsive to all my questions and helped me navigate all that Lake Anna has to offer. Nicely maintained inside and the property has a large backyard complete with fire pit for roasting s'mores. Located on a quiet street perfect for kids to ride their bikes. Two piers are in walking distance from house for casting a line into the lake. Easy drive to grocery store and dinner options. Television had cable and movie channels for chilling out at the end of the night. Had such a great time and look forward to returning!

Blue Water Retreat

  • 2 of 5

The outside is great the inside is so- so pro's- you have quick access to the dock, large, stores near by, gated, quiet, Con's you can only open 3 window because the rest do not have screens in them they have sliding glass doors that led out to the deck but you can't have them open because the one has no screen and the second one the screen doesn't close, You can't see the lake from the place must have taken the pic when there was no leaves on the trees, Miss leading.

On the kitchen counter when we arrived there were so many ants and spiders hanging from the cabinets not kidding under the sink you will find the largest can of ant and spider spray, the 0utlets in both bathrooms do not work, called about it never got it resolved had to dry my hair in the kitchen, they have a large ceiling fan in the living room but you can't turn it on because the remote doesn't work. the furniture is so uncomfortable the you actually sink in to the sofas and not in a good way. I was told that there are movie channels and there none. Pro- the backyard is nice with a great fire pit lots of chair to sit on out there, When she mailed back the deposit "It got lost in the mail" WE will go back to Lake Anna but not here! :(

Owner's Response: This cabin is our second home not just a rental property. We are generally at the house at least 2 times a month with our children, friends and family for the last 9 years. We were at the house ourselves the week before and 2 weeks after they checked out. We always work with our guests to resolve issues as soon as they tell us of any. This reviewer never told us of any problems except for the outlet in the bathroom. We told them that their hair dryer tripped the GFCI breaker and all they had to do is reset it. Unfortunately the hair dryer put too much load on that outlet. I do want to call out specifically the items that are totally false. We do have movie channels ie. Starz via Dish HD with a 42in High Def TV mounted on the wall in the living room. We also installed internet this passed spring. The house has 4 ceiling fans and they all work, the living room has a switch and a remote which both work. I'm sorry they couldn't figure this out nor called us for assistance. We do apologize for the couch, we are in the process of fixing that. The lack of screen especially on the sliding glass doors is intentional because they get broken too often by renters and because of the house being in the woods pollen is very high and we try to leave the windows closed and rely on the AC to keep it cool. I highly doubt there were ants and spiders in the magnitude indicated. Our cleaning people are wonderful and they always make sure the house is in tip top shape. Unfortunately with living in the woods and people leaving windows and doors open you can get insects and that is why we leave the bug spray. Once again we were not called about this issue, it just showed up in this review. Our contract clearly states that deposits will be refunded within 30 day. Deposits are refunded once our property manager gives us the ok, which is always within 2 weeks. We either send from PayPal or a Check sent directly from our bank. This is the first time we ever had a check "come up missing" we promptly paid $25 for a stop payment and the reviewer finally agreed to accept a PayPal payment so it wouldn't get lost. Ronnie called my wife and started screaming at her about the lost check, extremely unprofessional behavior on his part. We don't even no if the check was really lost or not. We appreciate you not coming back and will be sure to tell our other lake house rental friends to be on the lookout for you, so they don't disappoint you in the future.
