About the property

Waterfront with private dock, 3 bedroom, 3 full bath, great views

***One of the few areas at the lake with High Speed Internet.

***Also on CRAIGSLIST.

Welcome to our wonderful waterfront retreat in the woods. We continue to enjoy so many great times at the lake house and now want to share it with others.

This is a lakefront home directly on Lake Anna with 200' of prime waterfront in the sought after Pigeon Run portion of the lake. The area boasts deep water for any size boat even in the worst drought. The house has a large deck to sip your morning coffee and a covered dock where you and the kids will spend hours swimming and enjoying the water. The fishing is great right from the dock and we regularly catch nice sized catfish and bass in the early morning in late afternoon. This is a great area to waterski or tube. Some of your guests can sit on the dock and cheer as they watch your young water skiers get up for the first time on a pair of skis or wake board. There are two marinas (Anna Point and High Point) right around the corner and has a boat launch, snacks and any boating supplies you may need. There are a few restaurants just a short boat ride away.

The home is on two acres. A short walk down the drive will give you access to another 16 acres where you can hike your own private nature trails. Either through a hike or in the home’s great room, there is wildlife. The high vaulted ceilings include a few of the owner’s hunting trophies from the woods of Virginia. Inside or out, there are many opportunities to just prop your feet up and relax.

The master has a king size bed with its own bath. There are two other bedrooms with queen size beds and one also has bunk beds and a toddler bed. The basement has a trundle/day bed which makes into two twins. There are TVs on both levels with many, many movies to choose from. There is also an assortment of games and a ping pong table. Friends will love to hang out on the bar stools in the fully equipped kitchen.

The deck off the great room is a perfect place to eat dinner with a dining area for ten people. There also is a gas grill for those nights you want to throw on a steak or eat the day’s catch. Smores around the fire pit is a favorite of kids and adults alike. The rental comes with the use of a three person canoe for exploring a meandering creek not too far from the dock.

There is a local winery, restaurants, grocery store and various other shopping just minutes away. Everything you need to have the perfect vacation is here!

What a great location and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at this location, nice sunset views and right on the water. The place had everything we were looking for and plenty of activities right on the property. Great location on the lake, everything was a short boat ride to get to. Couldn't of asked for anything else from the property, everything was neat and clean. Thank you!

Nice and clean house

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the cleanest houses we ever rented on lake Anna (we rent twice a year for the last ten years). It was enjoyable, the house has everything you need. Everything worked as expected. We made fire, kids managed to play soccer in the backyard, overcoming a little bit of slope.

The dock is better suited if you want to rent (or bring your own, I guess) a boat, as the waters are quite busy on weekends. Just swimming close to the dock is Ok, but not relaxing at all if you want to kayak, or Stand Up Paddle board. Friday was quiet, but Saturday and Sunday brought a lot of traffic from the nearby marina.

Quiet, relaxing home away from home

Very nice, clean house. Quiet cove location. We enjoyed the fire pit and use of the canoe. We hope to return many times.

Just the right amount of time and fun!

  • 5 of 5

The house is and has everything advertised. We stayed 3 days and spent all of the time by the dock, playing with the kids, swimming, canoeing, name it.

We grilled and ate outside on the deck.

We made fire on the fire pit and prepared some smores for the kids.

The owners even left a closet with water toys, life vests and chairs by the dock. Very thoughtful and highly appreciated.

Just wish the site was a little more clear from the start on what the price is. At the end, it was a little more $$$ than I expected.

Don't get me wrong, the house was great and we really enjoyed it. It was the price structure as you are booking that can be deceiving. But that is not the owner's fault.

Congrats on a great house and thinking of all of the details for your guests.

Perfect for our trip

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice time at Days on the Dock. This is our 7th stay on the lake and our 1st time to try a new home. We needed the extra space for our family and kids friends. The ac was not working on arrival due to lightening strike, but we were made aware of this prior to arrival. Fans were provided and ac fixed exactly when they said it would be!!

We have stayed on a protected cove most of our other yrs, so it was a hard adjustment for our family to be in a busier cove. There was a lot of boat and jet ski traffic on Pigeon Cove. Didn't help it was getting closer to the 4th holiday and right around the corner from 2 marinas.

The grounds were perfect for our kids and friends to set up corn hole and have a great time playing. The dock and lounge chairs were perfect for hanging out at the dock for lazy afternoons.

The beds were very comfortable with the exception of the bunk beds...very unstable feeling to 18yr olds as well as not the most comfortable. Linen service was great...nice sheets and towels, plenty of them.

Thank you for opening your home and allowing us another great vacation on the lake!!
