About the property

6 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms (sleeps 12)

Completed in 2013, Stubbs Cove Overlook sits on a gentle hill on the public side with spectacular views of the main lake.

GAME CHANGER: One of the biggest complements we receive is that 4 of our bedrooms have their own private/attached bathrooms. Talk about stress reduction with lots of friends and family staying together! This unique feature is one that brings guests back time after time. In addition, we added walk-in closets to 4 of our bedrooms to allow separate sleeping for little ones in pack-n-plays. This too has turned out to be a great aspect for many families.

The yard has a gentle slop down to a great boat house perfect for sunning, swimming, fishing and playing on the cozy beach. Our beach provides great access to the water with a sandy shallow bottom perfect for all ages. The end of the dock provides deep water of 4 - 6 feet depending on rain fall.

Stubbs Cove is a great inlet that allows quick access to main lake but allows for safe swimming off our private dock. We are right beside Lake Anna State Park which provides boat access to the Stubbs Cove area.

The home is designed like a bed and breakfast with relaxation in mind. Beautiful finishes are used throughout with fine woods, granite, oil-rubbed bronze and other modern features. Attention to detail can be seen with such amenities as a walk-in pantry, laundry chute, tv/game room, spacious garage and beautiful wood-burning, 2-story, stone fireplace with wood beams.


***Boat-Slip with Swim Platform and Beach***

***Paddle Boat***

***Stone Firepit***

***10 min to groceries/restaurants***

The home has five bedrooms, a den/loft, and an office.

The house has five full baths, four of which are directly attached to bedrooms. The three bedrooms downstairs all have main lake views, each with their own full bathroom and double French doors, giving these 3 bedrooms the feel of private hotel rooms.

The master bedroom upstairs has gorgeous lake views, its own full bath, luxurious tile floors, and a large soaking tub and separate shower.

The private loft and home office can be used for sleeping as well.

The second bedroom upstairs serves as a bunk room and has four beds as well as a full/large-bathroom across the hall.

Downstairs also has a TV/Game room with foosball table and flat-screen with Dish Satellite/DVD, and great selection of board games and movies.

Whether you are enjoying the sun-deck of the large, two-slip, boat house (one of the slips is available for guests to use for their boat); paddling around in the 4-person paddle boat; soaking up the rays or grilling your favorite meal on the large house deck; roasting marshmallows around the fire-pit; or just relaxing by taking-in the lake views - - you will enjoy the outdoors at Stubbs Cove.

There is so much to do within an hour of our location, or just enjoy all the lake activities.

About Arielle and Tom

We are a fun-loving, Christian family who enjoys being outdoors and getting away from the hustle and bustle of Northern Virginia. Stubbs Cove Overlook is our 'little piece of heaven' that makes a perfect escape for our Heffernan clan. From our 20-month old to our parents who are in their 60s and 70s our house is a great retreat for all ages.

Arielle and Tom purchased this house in 2013

What makes this house unique

We really gave a lot of thought to having a well laid out home for a lot of people. One thing people mention over and over is that having four of our six bedrooms with their own adjoining bathrooms really makes things a lot less stressful with getting ready. Another item people enjoy is that we included 4 of our bedrooms with walk-in closets that can accomodate pack-in-plays to give little ones their own space as well!

At the top of the list of what people like is enjoying our water site with its beach and sunning deck. And of course everyone LOVES the large fire pit and enjoying the stars while roasting marshmallows!

thanksgiving family reunion

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to Lake Anna- family members loved having their own bathrooms! The kitchen was great, the view was amazing and we loved being close to the state park for playground and walks.

Great time away from home!

  • 4 of 5

We visited the lake with a group of friends and had a wonderful time--again! The guys loved fishing from the dock and the girls loved the views from the deck. The fire pit provided entertainment as well. The homeowners were wonderful to talk to and work with. This home would be a great location in the summertime for swimming!

Wonderful, beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time. We surprised our mom for her 60th birthday and it was a lovely location. Everyone had their own rooms with their own bathrooms which were a huge plus. We had plenty of space for 8 adults and two children under 2. The only issue we had was that the water filter on the refrigerator was a bit slow - but is that really a complaint? It only meant it took a few minutes longer to get back outside! :) We loved our stay, it was perfect!

Owner's Response: Well thanks to you letting us know we replaced the water valve on the refrigerator! (who would have thought a 3 year old refrigerator would need that replaced??) Now the water pressure is good to go and getting outside quickly is a breeze! Hope to have you back - - Blessings, Tom and Arielle

We found the property to be exactly as described. The lake access and the sandbox were amazing. Our family get together was fun and memorable and we would highly recommend this home to others. Arielle was very kind and quickly responded to all of my questions. A good time was had by all 😃?

Family get together

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There was plenty of room for all our family, a nice set up and things to keep all ages busy and entertained. The house and accommodations were exactly as advertised and owners were prompt in responding. The walk to the boat house and dock was somewhat difficult for seniors in our group.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you all had a great time! Our family is multi-generational too (Dad is almost 80 and in-laws in their mid-seventies) and they never have issues with the walk to the dock - - but we are glad the views from our house and yard gave your older family member a relaxing area to enjoy their weekend too! Many Blessings, The Heffernans

Perfect Family Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! This home was perfect for our family vacation (8 adults and 2 children.) Not only is it a beautiful, comfortable home (with a bathroom off each room ~ SO nice!) but the lake view was perfection. We especially enjoyed hanging out at the boat dock where the little ones had a sandy area to play along with a shallow wade in area. (The baby turtles that swam around & delighted all with their antics were especially endearing!) We had family cook-outs and home cooked meals every night & then enjoyed the full moon & stars with s'mores in the fire pit. Linens are provided but no bath towels, which we somehow missed reading, but made do with our beach towels. No one complained, that's for sure. If you want a week of fun filled memories with your family, this is your house. Many thanks from the Faris Family!
