About the property

3 Bedroom, 3.5 bath house that sleeps 10

This fully-furnished, 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home is available year round! Situated perfectly on the public side ('cold side') of Lake Anna on a quiet narrow shallow water cove just off the main lake by Plentiful Creek. The large wooded lot allows you privacy and to truly feel like you have gotten away from it all! The open floor plan, with spacious living areas make this a great house for friends and families to gather. Two living areas with comfortable seating, TVs, DVD players, WII console allows for both kids and adults to enjoy without arguments.

Sleeping for 10 is a breeze with two master bedrooms, large kid's bedroom with trundle boat beds, and a queen sleeper sofa in the main downstairs rec room. Fighting for time in the bathroom shouldn't be a problem with the 3.5 bathrooms.

Lots of deck space and outdoor seating allow for additional eating and gathering space. Also a great place to watch the local eagles, osprey and herons catching their dinner! Brand new in 2015 is a 1500 square foot boathouse with a large sun deck (please note that the electric jet ski and boat lifts are for the exclusive use of the owners), bar, jet ski dry dock and ample space to tie up your boat! Spend your days out on the water or enjoying the large yard and decks. A beautiful fire pit is a great place to gather in the evenings for s'mores, ghost stories and rehashing the days events. There is also a 4 person Jacuzzi Hot Tub to soak in on the main deck to ease your sore back if you took too many spills while learning to wake board!

Once you arrive for your getaway you won't have to leave the house. A large open kitchen, gas grill, and spacious dining inside and out! Washer/dryer on the main level of the house. A great place for family and friends to gather. This house has it all!

Week long rentals during peak season are Sunday-Sunday. Long weekend rentals are available in early and late season but cannot include a Sunday to allow for week long rentals.

Please contact the owners with any questions!

* Please Note... The water depths vary in our cove depending on rain levels and time of year. We want to advise renters using prop driven boats that they may need to exercise caution and discretion when navigating to deeper water which is less than 100 yards from the dock.* This is usually a concern in late August-September when lake water levels are at their lowest point. You can swim off the dock if you choose but please No Diving as the water depth is only 2.5'-3.5'' off the dock.

Why John and Marisa Phillips chose Lake Anna

We purchased this property in 2014 because we always dreamed of owning our own place at Lake Anna, a place where we could get away from our everyday life and unwind. We look forward to sharing our get away with you!

What makes this house unique

We love living on this private cove right off the main lake! Keep your eyes open because you just might catch an eagle, osprey or heron catching their dinner! The main part of the lake is just a short boat ride away. The cove offers a great shelter from lake traffic and does indeed make for a quite place to relax.

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the week! Great house with everything you need! Only issue is the water level around the dock. Besides that, a great rental and overall a wonderful experience!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! We are hoping that mother nature will start helping us out with the lake level and provide some more rain (during the night would be preferred!).

Great first experience at Lake Anna!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our family vacation on Lake Anna! This was our first time in this area, and John and Marisa were very helpful in answering all of our questions in the weeks before our trip. The house is beautifully laid out, and worked well for our group (there were 10 of us altogether). We spent a lot of time in the open living area and on the upper porch in the hot tub and just lounging in the Adirondack chairs. They have a pack-n-play, high chair and baby gates available for guest use, which was very helpful (we had an 18 month old with us) since we would have had to bring those things along otherwise. Dock and boat house provided a neat hangout area, and we made use of the fire ring out last evening there. The lake is located directly at the end of the back yard - the walk down and up is a little steep, which didn't bother us, but is something to be aware of. There are other houses adjacent, but the woods give plenty of privacy. This house is located on a quiet finger of the lake and not on the main part. One thing we didn't realize is that you are responsible for transporting all your own trash to the local facility - not a big deal as its very close by. We brought our own pontoon boat, which we were able to launch at Lake Anna State Park and dock at our boat house all week without any issues. Overall we had a lovely time, and would definitely recommend these accommodations!

Overall it was a great property in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

It was well kept and perfectly met our needs. The boat dock was great and where we spent most of our days. The separate space in the basement was great for the kids to get away. I could seen renting there again.

Great getaway, well-decored house with a scenic view

  • 5 of 5

This house was a great find for a group of college alumni catching up over a few days. The house has three bedrooms and a pull-out sofa, which was perfect for us. We always felt like we had plenty of room, even for our sizable group. When we arrived the sheets and towels were washed and folded, and the house was also clean throughout. The first floor is perfect for a group of people since the kitchen, dining area, and living room area are all in-line so that everyone can be part of the conversation. The house also has a lot to do if you don't want to do a lot of traveling - there's a hot tub off the master bedroom/living room (so you don't have a cold, wet walk!), a TV in the each two living areas, a propane grill (with an extra tank to be safe, which was nice), lots of board games, and a canoe! The wifi isn't for streaming movies, but we found it to be fine for checking email, sharing short videos, etc. There is also ample information throughout the house - light switches that should stay 'on' are labeled as such, etc. The owners are also very attentive - at one point an electric breaker went out (can happen anywhere), and the owners had it fixed within something like 2-3 hours...and that was on New Year's Eve! We really appreciated that responsiveness on a holiday, when it would have been really easy to have instead said they couldn't get someone out until a couple days later. The view is serene, with large windows on both floors facing the lake. The house is perfect for people who want to have a friendly, open space to relax without needing to go elsewhere. ...Oh yeah, and there's a Margaritaville margarita maker! (Do you really want to risk choosing a lake-house that DOESN'T have a margarita machine? Why chance it!?) Would definitely recommend for a group of people or sizable family, up to 8 people easily, 12 if you're good friends/family.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your thoughtful and kind review! We try to make our lake house as comfortable as we can for guests and pride ourselves on our quick response. We were a little worried that we wouldn't be able to get someone on NYE, but were very thankful that we could. We are glad you were able to reconnect with friends and ring in the New Year at Osprey Landing!

Lovely lake house nestled in atop a small hill overlooking the water.

  • 5 of 5

There are some truly amazing homes to choose from when staying in the Lake Anna area but we can't imagine having stayed anywhere but Osprey Landing! It is spacious and so well appointed; the atmosphere is inviting and relaxing with so many beautiful views of the water no matter what time of the day. And how well-equipped! Everything we needed was already there.

The family area off the kitchen was a great gathering place for us, with the fireplace adding extra warmth. The dock was large enough for all of us to stretch out on and laze the day away (or on which recover from long canoe rides).

The owners, John and Marisa, were attentive and welcoming, availing themselves during our stay with regard to any questions or concerns. They made us feel like our enjoyment of their home was top priority.

Great place to get away from hectic life!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property very much! If you love kayaking, fishing, nature and just want to relax, then this is a place for you. The house felt like home, very comfortable and very nicely stocked with all kinds of kitchen things you would need if you enjoy cooking. Our favorite was the fire pit where we cooked food as we shared ghost stories, watched fire and stars. The owners are very attentive and welcoming too! Seems like they anticipated many questions one would have while staying there. Research the area around the lake prior to coming over! There are things to do in the driving distance. If you rely on technology entertaining your kids then it's not the best place to visit. Although there is wifi available it's very limited. This is the place where you do real fun with kids, board games, puzzles, outdoor stuff, but there is huge game room available for all too. Nice decor inside, well maintained house and just the place you will enjoy away from noise and busy hectic life!
