About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

Heron House in Rose Valley Coves on Lake Anna in Mineral Virginia is a beautiful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Nestled between Northern Virginia and Richmond, it's the perfect weekend get-away or a great place to spend a week fishing, swimming, boating, or just relaxing.

The main level of the house has three bedrooms that overlook the water with queen beds in two and two twin beds in the other. There are two baths on the main level. The basement has one bedroom that overlooks the water with a double/full bed and another bedroom with three sets of bunkbeds. There is a shared bath in the basement.

Outside you'll find two huge decks that overlook the lake with furniture for eating and relaxing; a boat house with parking for a jet-ski and a dock with a swim ladder so that you can enjoy swimming in the quiet cove. At night, you can roast marshmallows and tell ghost stories by the fire pit out back or enjoy a movie on the TVs in both living rooms - upstairs and down.

More information on the house and additional pictures can be found by scrolling down the page to the area after the Rates that says 'Links to More Information'.

Area marinas offer boat and jet ski rentals. Boat tie downs are available on the dock. The boat lift is not available for rental use, but the Jet Ski lift is. Water depth at the end of the dock is around 8 feet.

Sorry - No large parties, reunions, or weddings. Please keep to the maximum house occupancy of 15.

Great Lake House, Plenty of Space, Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

Nothing negative to say. The house was exactly as described had plenty of space/bedrooms/beds and had everything we needed for a great weekend.

Very quiet corner of the lake, nice dock and great fire pit. Would reccomend to anyone with 12-15 people or less. We had 10 and it was more than enough room.

VBRO process works to satifaction

  • 4 of 5

The process of finding property ... getting security deposit works at professional level. No issues with that.

The property I rented was as per the owner's specifications. There were no hidden details. You get what you see.

For a change next time I will try 100% lake facing property. By 100% I mean one should see significant area of lake.. and one more thing ..going there in fall has its own limitations. So summer should be better...

Nice house on quiet breezy cove

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I live and work in DC and rented this house for a weekend getaway to Lake Anna. Plenty of bedrooms upstairs and down to hold a large party. The kitchen was nice, and looked to be recently renovated. It had all the pots/pans needed for cooking for a large party, and the dining area had a very large table and lots of chairs for group dinners as well. The grill was also a great feature for this house, very large with the option for gas or charcoal and it cooked well. Nice AC and lots of ceiling fans in the upstairs rooms as well to keep cool and breezy, the house was always pleasant even when temps tipped the 100 degree mark.

Outside was nice as well, not a huge yard but enough to play some lawn games and a nice fire pit. The dock is in good condition with plenty of chairs and the cove was great for floating/swimming.
