A group of us spent a weekend at Day Dream Retreat for a Mom's Getaway and we had a wonderful time at this home. The house was clean and cozy and the waterfront dock area was a perfect place to enjoy the sunset. We hope to make this an annual tradition!

Still Day Dreaming

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful week! We truly enjoyed our week long stay at Day Dream Retreat. Our various activities included: Fishing, kayaking, boating, floating (nice inflated island), hot tubbing (fresh and wonderful) bon fire w/s’mores (we left some wood for the next renters), reading and relaxing and maybe a couple of drinks in the screened in dock & the dock deck. We had cook outs and ordered out from a nearby pizza and Asian restaurant. We also enjoyed dining out at Tims & the Cove. We took a daily run through the back of the neighborhood and out through the adjacent neighborhood each morning. This was a great time spending time with the whole family before the kids had to go back to school. The house was comfortable (Master bed is excellent!) and sufficient for our family and a couple of overnight visitors. The decking around the house is plentiful and a beautiful view as well. We spent much of our time outdoors as one would want to do at the lake.

Notes to owner: There was an intermittent septic scent in the back yard that may have been coming from the neighbors. The outlet over the sink in the master bath was not working. I would recommend a wider entrance from the yard to the dock for better navigation in the dark or for elderly folks.

It was a little private slice of heaven for the week and we would definitely return.

Thanks for the bottle of wine! :-)

The house was clean and the grounds are kept nice. Lots of room, nice hot tub and we loved the boathouse with the screen room. Highly recommended.

We loved our week at Lake Anna! Andrea was great to work with!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Day Dream Retreat. Our kids, 3 teens, and their friends, had fun swimming, fishing, and kayaking.The deck was certainly our favorite spot with both open deck and covered screened deck. We spent the majority of our time outdoors! We rented a boat during our stay and used the covered boat slip. The lake was beautiful and not very busy which allowed plenty opportunity for water sports with very little boat traffic. Everything was perfect! Thank you, Andrea, for being so helpful and quick to reply to any messages so quickly! We look forward to returning to Lake Anna!

Great lake house!

  • 5 of 5

This house has an amazing lake side dock that kept us outside the entire time we stayed there. The screened in porch, comfortable deck furniture, and the outdoor speaker system was amazing. Even with the rain, we were still able to sit out and enjoy the water views and enjoy being outside at the lake. Other than to sleep, we barely left the dock.

I would definitely recommend this home to anyone who loves being on the water!

Wonderful Owner

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin... Andrea, you are so sweet and helpful! I appreciated your wonderful communication so much and willingness to work with us in anyway you could! You went above and beyond. The hot tub was wonderful and clean. The Screened in porch- well WOW! What an awesome touch! Perfect location on the lake- we had ample room to swim and layout. House is a little dated- but will not keep me from coming back! Master bedroom was very large! When you have such an amazing dock by the lake you really don't need or care about anything else! :) Thank you again for your warm hospitality and allowing us to rent your beautiful location on Lake Anna. I can not WAIT to return. (I already looked to book again with my family and was so disappointed to see there was no availability) Highly recommend. You won't be disappointed. :)
