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!

Beautiful spot and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 adults loved their time away here. Having master baths for 4 bedrooms really was fantastic. Enjoyed the views, a wintertime fire - good stuff in every way. Tom & Arielle were very responsive to questions as we prepared to use their place, and had a wonderful spirit about them. We look forward to returning in a few weeks with another group!

I'd rent this home again in a heartbeat. We rented in the winter --- I'd love to see what it is like in the summer.

thanksgiving family reunion

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.
