About Evelyn Martin

After moving around for many years during their naval careers, owners John and Jan settled in northern Virginia 22 years ago. They purchased this home 7 years ago, are looking forward to many years of enjoyment at Lake of the Woods, and hope to share all it has to offer with you.

Evelyn Martin purchased this house in 2009

Why Evelyn Martin chose Locust Grove

Its so convenient to northern Virginia/ Washington, DC - just over an hour away, and has so much more to offer than the other lake properties we looked at. In addition to all the water related activities, there's an 18 hole golf course on site and another 45 holes within ten minutes of the community. Add in tennis, horseback riding, hiking, the clubhouse and other amenities, and almost any vacationer, young or old, can be satisfied. There are also many dining, shopping and sightseeing options nearby.

What makes this house unique

Relaxing... morning coffee on the dock... jump in the cove off the dock... grill good food... watch the cove's resident swans... canoe to the clubhouse for a good meal or beverage... 63 holes of golf to conquer... become a Civil War history buff... stroll in historic Fredericksburg... quiet afternoon in the hammock... a tennis match... fishing... a good kayaking workout

Beautiful Home/Better View

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely home. It was well equipped with all of the basic kitchen tools etc. The linens were of nice quality. Plenty of space to spread out so guests didn't have to be on top of each other. The little office was great too. But the best part of the stay is the screened in porch which included a great dining table. The canoe was a favorite of the children and we were out in it a number of times during the day. The view out the window is just wonderful and relaxing.

The management company was quick to respond and very easy to work with during our rental process. A real gem of a property.

The Perfect Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 2 kids just finished a 5 night stay at this lake house. This spot is set in a quiet cove that gets an ideal amount of afternoon sun. The deck provides plenty of space for laying out in the sun or getting together with family and friends. The house itself has a beautiful screened in porch with a great views of the lake. It has enough space available for family dinners or relaxing on a lounge reading a book. Our family enjoyed the time together on the water, golfing and spending time with our family. This is our second trip to the lake house and a special place for us. We look forward to making the trip again!

Peaceful and relaxing time on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a long weekend away from the busy streets of NYC with my family at this wonderful lake house. It was the perfect setting for what everyone sought in a weekend getaway. We enjoyed the local golf courses, peaceful setting on the lake, and lake activities (fishing, boating, tubing, and floating). The full kitchen and outdoor grill, along with plentiful seating, allowed our family to dine in while enjoying large family dinners. The home's proximity to grocery stores and shopping also provided for easy access to daily needs. I cannot say enough good things about this lake house and would recommend it to anyone seeking a lake house getaway!

Peace and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We'll we just finished up our sixth straight summer stay here at the cove of peace and relaxation. We took full advantage of everything this lovely place had to offer. My wife and I along with our daughter and her husband and two children (4 & 9) and our son and his wife enjoyed six beautiful days of gorgeous sun rises, swimming, outdoor cookouts and billions of stars often shoot through the skies. God truly blessed this spot on a quite cove with bountiful sunshine, refreshing lake water and an inviting dock that found ourselves in deep conversations well into the early A.M. hours. The lake house is the perfect place to retreat to cook a meal, freshen up or lay your head down for a peaceful nights rest. Plenty of room for all to get together or go off into your own peaceful meditation. We will without a doubt be back for a seventh consecutive getaway.

From a tranquill relaxed cup of coffee on the dock first thing in the morning to a romantic glass of wine late into the peaceful evening, our wonderful stay at your beautiful lake house was more than we could possibly had hoped for. The surrounding area beckons for many attactions, activities and restaurants but we found it very hard to leave such an awesome private vacation getaway. We enjoyed our days relaxing on the sun filled dock, canoeing your beautiful lake and spending many lazy hours laying on the tubes in your very quite and relaxing cove. We found your lake home more beautiful than the pictures on your website. We definetely felt the personal love and attention that you have touched in every room of your home. We will definetly find ourselves back at this perfect vacation getaway.

We rented the house for our children and grandchildren to stay in while visiting great-grandmom at the lake since her house is too small for our growing brood. We've been coming to the lake since the 1970's. The house was beautifully equipped and maintained; the owners very hospitable. The lake offers all amenities one can possibly imagine. We hope we can rent again next summer.
