Renters' quotes from our guest book:
'We really enjoyed our time here. So relaxing, just being able to sit on the deck and look out on the lake. We BBQ'd most evenings. We made use of the kayaks, which was fun. We spent a couple of days touring the local battlefields, well worth a visit. Fredericksburg was also worth a visit. '--from Essex, UK.

'We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and exploring parts of Virginia we've never visited. We loved kayaking around the lake and the wonderful tennis courts, too.' --from Falls Church, VA

'We had a wonderful family vacation weekend fishing, swimming, using the sauna and the lake. We wanted to stay longer. We visited James Madison's Montpelier. It was such fun. Thank you for your hospitality!'

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1977

About: We have owned this property since Lake of the Woods's earliest days, and built our home as a weekend getaway in 1977. We have recently refurbished it. Now that we are retired, we still enjoy using it as a getaway from life in Washington, DC. Lake of the Woods provides a woodsy environment that is still within a convenient drive to Washington, Civil War battlefields, movies, entertainment and restaurants.

Why Locust Grove, VA, USA (City):
We lived in a condo when we built this house, so it was, in effect, our first house as a married couple. We were lucky to find an architect who could take our ideas and transform them into a house that was perfect for our needs and for this site.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have preserved our property in a natural state, and the feel of a rustic, but very comfortable cabin inside. In colder months, we enjoy reading or watching television in front of the wood-burning fireplace, and entertaining friends on the deck in summertime. Over the years, our friends have enjoyed visiting Lake of the Woods and taking advantage of its many fine amenities.
