About the property

6 Bedroom, 6 Bathroom Custom Built Lakefront Vacation Property

Looking for an escape to the lake? Whether you need a week or just a weekend, we have just what you are looking for. This lakefront custom built home has unobstructed lake views from the main floor with a glass rail system surrounding the veranda. With 6 bedrooms 4 full baths and 2 half baths, there is plenty of room for everyone. There are two screened porches, one off the dining room, great for the group and a private one off of one of the master bathrooms that makes a great private get-away.

There are two master bedrooms with queen size beds and private bathrooms located on the main floor, along with main living areas; entry from the four car carport is on the main floor. We have a well stocked kitchen, huge living room overlooking the lake, and an extra large dining room table. Outside downstairs has a covered porch with picnic table and plenty of seating in the shade for watching boating, swimming, or yard games.

We have an abundant “game closet” including, among other things, a kickball, a soccer ball, and a badminton set. Play in our huge, grassy yard, great for all kinds of games. There is sun and fun galore with a large dock for swimming and fishing and a sundeck on top with lounge chairs for the sun worshipers. The boathouse is equipped with life jackets, noodles, and floats for daytime fun. It also includes an iPod connection, speakers, and nighttime lighting for your enjoyment. If your family enjoys the quiet of evenings around the fire roasting hot dogs and marshmallows for s’mores and singing songs, or telling ghost stories, we have a large fire pit; just bring your own wood. Just a side note, if you have never seen the night sky filled with stars because you live in the glow of city lights, you have got to experience it. It is truly magnificent! If you happen to have a rainy day, we have you covered. There are plenty of board games, card games, a PlayStation 2, DVD's, wireless internet and our personal favorite, karaoke.

The “Lake Escape” is located in Tanglewood Shores Golf and Country Club, just 6 miles off Interstate 85, Exit 4 in southern Virginia. Your rental includes access to the recreation area which includes a boat ramp, beach, roped off swimming area, children’s playground, grills, picnic tables, covered picnic shelter, volleyball court and basketball court. There is access to the community swimming pool and 9 hole golf course for an additional cost.

Nice relaxing week at the Lake.

  • 5 of 5

Lake Escape exceeded our expectations. We were a group of 19 - 11 adults and 8 children under the age of 13yrs. There was plenty of room for the family without feeling like we were tripping over each other. The house was clean, the kitchen well stocked for cooking, baking, and grilling (we did all three), and there were lots of extras (toys, games, magazines, books). We enjoyed roasting marshmallows over the fire pit, hanging out in the hammock, playing wiffleball in the back yard, and walking to the beach area for swimming with the little ones and beach volleyball for the others. The older kids enjoyed jumping off the back pier and taking the paddle boat out on the water. There were plenty of life jackets for our use and kick boards in the boat house to make the moms and grandmas in the group feel more comfortable. We also appreciated the filtered water in the fridge and the use of the washer/dryer. Faith was quick to respond to any questions we had during the week and the check in and out process was easy. Thanks so much for providing your home for a great week away with the family! We hope to be able to come back again!

Beautiful, relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Your home was exactly what we needed to be able to get our entire family away for a long, long weekend. The view is amazing, the yard was perfect for the kids to be able to toss baseballs, play soccer and throw the football. Thank you for being flexible on our dates and also for being so responsive. Everyone had a great time, even my wife loved your kitchen and was able to prepare family-sized meals with very little effort. Thanks!

Great Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This house was very spacious and right on the lake. The large yard was perfect for all of our active kids. We had 23 for an extended get away and we had plenty of room. The layout of the house was super and the two kitchens were nice to have! Faith was great to work with and so flexible. Thank you so much for helping us make great memories!

Nice spacious house right on the lake - great for big family get together

  • 4 of 5

Nice house and location. Plenty spacious enough for a big family get together. Mostly a great house, but could really use a deep cleaning and maybe some new carpet in some rooms. Unfortunately the gas logs didn't work in either rooms where gas logs are installed - would have really liked to have had these for the stay since it was chilly. Kitchen is well stocked. The entire family had a good time and we would consider staying here again.
