Post Visit Emails…

Hello Brian…

"I left my collapsible aluminum (HC) ramp at the side door. If you can contact your property/rental manager for me or give me that information I will gladly make either UPS or FEDEX shipping arrangements on my accounts. The ramp can be rolled up for transporting or shipping. Thank you, Tim H."

Good Morning Tim...

Did you receive your portable ramp back ??? We are glad we could help. Please let me know.

Best Regards and Safe Travels,


Yes, Brian I did and thank you and, for the life of me I can't think of her name right now (Sondra) or locate the email, for her trip to Spotsylvania. The ramp arrived in perfect condition. I was waiting until its arrival to write you back about my appreciation for the extra effort. If you have returned from England I hope you had a good trip and if you're still there I hope that everything is doing well for you. Again, thank you for your time and the use of your cottage/house/camp at Lake Anna.

Awesome week in the Lake Anna Wilderness

  • 5 of 5

Very Close to the waters edge at Lake Anna... We had 8" of snow our first day and headed out on the lake for one of the last days of winter fishing. The very next day the weather turned warm and sunny and all that snow melted. Brian is a great host and made recommendations for boat rentals and Restaurants for dinner. The home is clean and inviting, the kitchen is new and is stocked with pots, pans and utensils. We had a fire every night as there is available firewood on the ground from the winter snow. I would suggest bringing a bow saw for anyone who wants to make smores around the outdoor fire pit. There is a horse shoe pit to throw horse shoes and hiking trails to spend hours adventuring around the Lake. Lake Anna State Parke is only a few miles from Brian's home and it is fun to see so much wildlife. Deer drinking along the shore, Bald Eagles fly everywhere and the Lake is a bounty of several species of fish.

Thank you for being such a terrific host, we'll be back again this summer.

Awesome property

  • 5 of 5

Your vacation home is neat and clean, fully stocked with towels, linens, and starter paper supplies (we left some of our unused paper products for the next renters). The kitchen is completely stocked with everything you will need, even though we brought our own grill we found he had a grill with a grill brush in the shed along with a couple of chairs, oh and I almost forgot the two picnic tables. The beds are very comfortable, but you may want to bring your own pillow if you like a softer pillow. The pier is a short walk from the cottage, we were able to have our boat in the water all week. Brian was very easy to work with and property was as he described.

Cabin was clean and inviting. It was a perfect size for our family of 5.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The kitchen was supplied with everything needed to cook our meals. We used the Weber grill every night for dinner and took advantage of the fire pit for s'mores. The kids played horseshoes and watched movies late at night with the CD player supplied. It is only a short walk to the lake and we had the little lagoon to ourselves everyday. The boys caught fish in the morning and in the evening and we had fresh caught cat fish for dinner one night. It was a Great Lake retreat!

Wonderful Cozy Home at Lake Anna

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is! Our week long family stay here was excellent. So much thought went into creating a home that catered to hosting a family and enjoying time together. The kitchen was generally well stocked for this cooking enthusiast, and each of the rooms were roomy and thoughtfully decorated. The beds were very comfortable, and all boasted of having a great night's rest. Cooked Smores outside around the fire pit . In many ways it was nicer to enjoy the Lake in the early springtime without the crowds. The stunning views, bright green spring foliage, and the chirping birds created the perfect little slice of heaven to relax and enjoy a good book with a cup of coffee in the morning. The owner is very responsive, accommodating, friendly, and helpful. We highly recommend this place and hope to stay here again in the fall. We enjoyed this home and recommend it to other families.

Nice summer cabin with a couple exceptions

  • 3 of 5

I really liked the camp. Location is good with all the essentials to cook at home if you want, but close enough to local restaurants if you don't. Comfortable but not luxurious which was great for us. Clean and everything except floodlight by the side door worked. I had only 1 real complaint: the beds and pillows need updating. For kids it is not a big deal but for the parents they don't really allow for a good nights sleep which is important if you're going to be on the water all day or running around sightseeing. Also, it seemed to be closer to the lake in the ad. Not a huge issue but you have to plan ahead if you will be dragging tubes, wakeboards, coolers etc down to the boat slip.

Owner's Response: Hello Rick... Thank you for telling me about the pillows... I will get right on replacing them this weekend. You should have called me the first day of your stay, I would have replaced them immediately if I had known you were at all uncomfortable. I'm glad you had a nice week at the lake, I strive to make all guests comfortable with the home and even more comfortable with the cost of their stay... please come back and enjoy the new beds, pillows and linens. Best Regards and Safe Travels, Brian

Lake Anna Woods
Car: recommended

Lake Anna is the second largest fresh-water inland lake in Virginia, with over 250 miles of shoreline and some 13,000 surface acres of water. Lake Anna has become Central Virginia's premier choice for water sports and fishing. Initially known as a vacation community, the number of full time residents has grown steadily since the lake was created in 1972.

Lake Anna offers swimming, sailing, boating, world-class fishing, and multiple annual triathlons. Surrounding attractions include vineyards, antique shopping, golf, historic sites, theme parks, and hiking. To get the most out of the lake, one can rent a boat from various local marinas and businesses. Sailboat enthusiasts will prefer the more open, wide water appeal of the southern end of the lake (note: the lake's several bridges, including the main 208 bridge, are too low for a sailboat to pass beneath). Water sports junkies tend to enjoy the mid-lake area, while the fishing crowd has lots of hot spots in nooks and crannies of the northern 'on Golden pond' end. Anglers fish for over 30 species of fish including large mouth bass, striped bass, walleye, catfish, crappie, bluegill and white and yellow perch. Weekly fishing leagues keep our full time and local residents happy while sanctioned tournaments bring visiting anglers from afar.

Lake Anna is very conveniently located. Washington, DC is only about an hour and a half away. It's only about 30 minutes to Fredericksburg where the Virginia Railway Express runs daily to Washington, DC. And, a drive of less than an hour will also get you to Richmond or Charlottesville. If you haven't yet been to this wonderful place, it's time that you visit us. And, if you already have, we KNOW you'll come back.
