Beautiful sunrise in Lake of the Woods

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during Thanksgiving to have our own retreat while visiting family in the area. My Mom lives in the same community so we know the area well after visiting her for years. This house is on the lake with its own dock. The sunrise from the screened porch is amazing. This house had everything we needed and was clean and in good shape. I’ll definitely stay here again on future visits to the area. Our experience was excellent. We are runners and running in this community is easy. The roads are quiet and there are really nice parks. Right near this house is a beach and a park with a walking path. From the Church parking lot you can access the Civil War Battlefield trail called the Battle of the Wilderness. It is a nice 2 mike walk or jog. This neighborhood is great access to the Fredericksburg/ Chancellorsville/ Spotsylvania Civil war areas. Fredericksburg itself is about 15 minutes drive. Plenty of shopping. Great historic district. Nice restaurants. The train ride to DC is a neat excursion. Can also go to Kings Dominion for a day trip from here. There is a lot to do in this neighborhood and in the surrounding area. As they say in the show Girls “Boredom is for the dull and unimaginative.”

Owner's Response: Awesome! You are 100% correct! This is an amazing area with great things to see and enjoy! I’m so thrilled that you were able to explore and experience a handful. Maybe next time Montpelier or the Shenandoah mountains will be a must see. Thank you for staying with us. 😊

Beautiful view, easy rental

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have been at the Lakefront Family Escape and once again it was a very easy rental, and a relaxing weekend. Lynn is absolutely fabulous to work with. Questions and concerns are promptly addressed. The house accommodates 10 adults very easily, the kitchen is completely stocked and the view cannot be beat!! We will definitely be back next year!

This home has everything we like in a rental property. The home is clean, the neighborhood is quiet, and grocery stores, restaurants and gas stations are all nearby. We were there for a week of visiting Civil War sites and this home was a short drive from most of them.

Great front porch overlooking the Pond!

Great overall weekend

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed ourselves. It took a day and half for me to realize we weren't on Lake Anna though--this could have just been me being naïve but I had no clue Lake of the Woods was an actual lake. We enjoyed this private lake though so it ended up being better. The house was very clean and in a great location. The weather was perfect and the use of the kayaks and the well stocked house was great.

The only complaint I have is day of arrival, check in is 4pm and when we arrived at 4:30, the house was still being cleaned. The woman cleaning left at 5:00pm. The upstairs bathroom shower would also not drain but I am sure that has a lot to do with numerous guests throughout the summer.

The sunroom on the back porch is the best part of this entire house. We ate every meal out here and it was a great way to relax without having to worry about bugs or direct sun--this was especially ideal for our two month old.

Overall, we would recommend this house to friends and family and would rebook.

Very relaxing and enjoyable vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this house several times now and have enjoyed it each time. Although, I must say, this time the place appeared to be much cleaner and tidier than previous stays....not that it was bad previously, but this time it seemed to be better. The house is well maintained and suited for all sizes of families/# of guests. The lake is so clean and perfect for any type of recreation. The community is quiet. Thank you so much for offering up your house.

A weekend to remember!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time playing in the water, kayaking, and sitting on the dock. The house was the perfect setup for our group of four adults and one baby. There were even toys for the little one! We hope to be back soon.
