About George or Barbara Akst

My husband and are both city folk (born and raise in Chicago and New York). We now live in Washington, DC area and love to travel to water! We have a home in Nags Head (Fancy Free I), a home at Deep Creek Lake in Maryland (Fancy Free II) and we just purchased this home at Lake Anna (Fancy Free III). We hope to make Lake Anna our retirement home!

George or Barbara Akst purchased this house in 2013

Why George or Barbara Akst chose Central Virginia

We just purchased what we hope will be our retirement home. However, before we retire, we decided to share it with others. We have completely redesigned the kitchen and are adding amenities every time we have a chance to visit our new home. We invite you to share our quiet, peaceful lake front home.

What makes this house unique

The moment we walked into this home, we loved the open space. In addition, the size of the home (4400 sq ft) allows us to create many different, yet cozy gathering areas and offer many locations for fun ( poker table, pool table, ping pong, foosball.....etc and that is just the indoor games. Outside you will find a private beach, swimming dock (plus the boat docks) children's play area, fire pit, and so much more. We keep adding stuff every time we come. Before we are done we plan to have a volleyball net, horse shoes, basketball and ????

The perfect rental home at the lake!

  • 5 of 5

If I could give this home and its owners more stars, I would!

We cannot say enough about how much we loved our stay at Fancy Free III at LKA!

The house is situated on a quite cove, perfect for tubing or water sports!

The home itself is gorgeous, with an amazing open floor plan with beautiful views from every single room in the home! The kitchen is enormous, updated and is stocked with anything you could ever possibly need. The rest of the home is super clean, spacious, and accommodating for any age!

The beach is perfect for the little ones and the dock was so much fun for everyone to swim, fish and dock our two boats under. We were initially only supposed to rent the home for a short weekend in June but loved the home SO much we didn't want to leave, and decided to rent it for the rest of the week!

There was so much to do here we couldn't enjoy it all in only 2 days!

We have been back to LKA almost every weekend this summer and we almost always drive by the property on our boat just to go see the home. We wish it was our own!

The owners were fantastic to work with and answered our phone calls on the second ring!

They made making our reservations fast and easy and working with their properly management company (Sunset Properties) was a breeze!

You won't be disappointed if you stay here!

Thanks again for the memories!!!

Nana's review

  • 5 of 5

Such a perfect house that became a home for all 13 of us for our family reunion. Great memories were made that will last us for years to come. Everything we needed was supplied by the owners to keep us comfortable. Spacious, clean and comfy rooms. The views were amazing from the front windows that we would just sit and watch the lake as evening or dawn approached. Great Kitchen supplies. We had plenty of space and places to hang out and just enjoy each others company. The beach was perfect for the grands and adults as well. We rented water toys and just have the best time ever! We left happy and tanned. Thank you family and thank you owners of the perfect vacation house.

This home was perfect for our group of 10 adults. We brought a ski boat and the large boat house allowed us to keep the boat in the water and easily accommodated our ski equipment. Everything inside the home was in good working order. The gourmet kitchen was well stocked. There were plenty of tidy beds and bathrooms. The downstairs refrigerator was convenient to grab cold beverages while playing outside. The views from inside the home of the lake are truly spectacular! Large windows abound. We are an active bunch and this house offered pool, a ping pong top, basketball, horse shoes, foosball, air hockey, not to mention a closet full of games. We soothed our aches from all our activities in the large hot tub. We had a great time and will definitely be back to Fancy Free III.

Relaxing Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home at Lake Anna with our family. We certainly enjoyed our long weekend at the lake. We had fun fishing, enjoying the view of the lake from the deck, taking walks, talking around the fire, the hot tub, and just getting away and enjoying each other for a few days surrounded by the tranquility of Lake Anna. This was our first trip to Lake Anna and we hope to make it an annual family gathering-thanks again!!!

Fabulous house!

  • 5 of 5

The owners have thought of EVERYTHING necessary for a multigenerational family gathering. Spacious rooms for everyone and plenty of things to do including but not limited to game/rec room, horse shoes, hammock and hot tub. Star gazing around the firepit was incredible along with a few amazing light shows from the heavens on two stormy nights. The sandy beach area/boat dock were natural meeting places along with the state of the art kitchen and open family room area. We would highly recommend Fancy Free III. Worth every penny!

Wonderful, relaxing time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Lake Anna for our family. This house was everything I was hoping for! It is very family oriented with a little of something for everyone. Very clean and spacious with a large well equipped kitchen, a great downstairs family/rec room and plenty of outdoor activities. The views are amazing and the boat dock with small sandy beach was enjoyed as well. Our Sprint cell service wasn't good but we were able to connect with WiFi easily. We highly recommend this home and hope to return soon. Thank you so much for allowing us to spend our vacation at Fancy Free III.

Lake Anna is one of the largest lakes in Virginia. Lake Anna State Park is six miles from our home with ample opportunities for hiking and biking. With two boat docks, a swimming dock, private beach, fire pit, children's play area along with many indoor and out amenities, most folks don't want to leave the property!
