Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Thank you for a very relaxing Labor Day Weekend.

  • 5 of 5

The house is spotless and well equipped.

Brian has done a good job of providing pretty much everything you need except food. The nearby Food Lion took care of everything else.

We loved the quiet of his wooded property, yet easy access to Lake Anna.

Thank you Brian,

George & Debbie Gabriel

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We spend a lot of time at Lake Anna during the summer, but always make it a day trip. We decided to spend a long weekend and started searching online for places to rent. We are so glad we found Brian's place. It was not only a great location in a wooded area, it also allowed us to dock our boat. We had easy access to the boat ramp, everything we needed in the kitchen for cooking, a grill so we could barbeque and we were even able to make an evening campfire in the pit.

We would highly recommend this rental and look forward to returning in the future. Brian was also very helpful in answering our questions we had prior to renting.

Thanks for an awesome weekend at Lake Anna!

Bill and Donna W.

This property was excellent and Brian made the paperwork process and arrival so smooth! Very convenient location on the lake, and peaceful neighborhood with friendly neighbors! I would recommend booking this place and will strongly consider booking again for our annual Lake Anna trip. Thanks again Brian!

Very nice property, surroundings not what I wanted.

  • 3 of 5

The house was very well equipped, the only thing we didn't find was a baking sheet. But lots of dishes, cups, glasses, knives and cooking utensils, plus towels galore. Much appreciated. Brian was also very accommodating in letting us stay an extra two hours to see a World Cup game before heading out!

My disappointment had more to do with the location (I expected it to be ON the water: it is not), no internet or T-mobile coverage, and amenities having nothing to do with Brian: there is no beach, the water is very murky and much too warm (my first and probably last visit to Lake Anna), and beaches altogether are very few and far between and crowded: we could not even get in to Lake Anna Park on July 4.

I should emphasize that Brian is a very affable and generous host.

Awesome Stay, Wonderful Weather, Will come back in July or August !

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your Lake Anna home Brian and Donna! We came to the Lake for my nieces graduation and planned to stay the weekend. We liked the house so much we asked Brian if the rest of the week was available. We had a great time, we rented a pontoon boat and cruised the lake, fished, we went to Tim's Landing and also Lakeside Restaurants. Food Lion is nearby for groceries and BBQ essentials, Brian has a Weber Kettle grill we used, We cooked smores over the outdoor fire pit in the evenings. The kids had a ball, the property is wooded and the kids went out hiking and exploring the lake property. The Lake Anna State Park is only a few miles away and we were able to ride horses and enjoy their beach and amenities for one day. Another day we went and visited the Spotsylvania Courthouse Battleground and the Military Park. The kids can't wait to go back before they have to go back to school in the fall. Thanks so much.

Relaxing visit at a great place for a quick weekend out of the city!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Lake Anna for a weekend triathlon. There were no hotels close by so we looked for a lake house rental and found Brian's place. We needed something close to the park with enough space to stretch out. This house was the perfect size for a family, and we were especially grateful to be able to bring our dog. The house was clean, the beds were comfortable, and there were starter paper products. Brian made check in easy with detailed instructions. We arrived late so it was nice to be able to go straight into the house without having to meet up or stop at a rental management company. If you have a boat, there is a great boat ramp just down the street. The boat access makes it so easy to add on to a family adventure. Brian was also very responsive to my phone calls, emails, or texts when we had questions upon booking. Thank you, Brian, for allowing our family to enjoy your home!

Owner's Response: Thank You Elizabeth... I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at our Lake Anna home. I want to enjoy myself while I vacation so I strive to make everyone comfortable before and after they arrive. Please come back and visit us again and enjoy another week on the water this time... There are boat and jet ski rentals nearby so you run around the Lake in a boat ! Best Regards, Brian and Donna Whitehead

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.
