About the property

Lakefront 3 bedroom 2 full bath with spectacular views near Fredericksburg

Relax in this charming, spacious 3 bedroom 2 full bathroom home with 140 feet of private waterfront on a wonderful 550 acre three mile long lake about 15 minutes west of Fredericksburg. Washington, northern Virginia, Charlottesville and Richmond are about an hour’s drive. The three bedrooms (one queen, one full, and two twin beds) can accommodate one or two families. Enjoy the panoramic water views from the deck, screen porch, yard, or private dock. Because of the open floor plan, you have spectacular water views from almost anywhere in the house. The water is perfect swimming, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, pedal boating, floating, or just unwinding on the private dock. Guests have access to a pedal boat. Several uncrowded sandy beaches are close by, one of them a 5 minute walk

The Lake of the Woods clubhouse features a restaurant, bar, swimming pool, tennis courts, and a beach. Within the community you have access to golf (18 hole PGA course), tennis, basketball courts, and horseback riding. Other restaurants, grocery store, shops, and post office are close by. Local points of interest include vineyards, orchards, and Civil War battlefields.

If you are looking for total relaxation to “get away from it all”, bring a book, your fishing poles, and golf clubs, because this is it!

Please visit the Lake of the Woods website for more information about all of the amenities available in the community.

About Michael Elkin

Although we both grew up in Connecticut and are raising our son there, my wife's family is from the south and we wanted to get back to the 'Southern Hospitality'! We have always loved to vacation here.

Michael Elkin purchased this house in 2014

Why Michael Elkin chose Virginia

We had been spending our vacations in Lake of the Woods for many years. Our family fell in love with the lake and surrounding area and decided we would purchase our own lakefront home and offer it as a rental so others could enjoy the lake as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

The 140 feet of waterfront is amazing. The lakefront house is on large cove that is a no wake zone, which makes it perfect swimming, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, pedal boating, floating, or just unwinding on the private dock. Guests have access to a pedal boat. If you prefer, you can enjoy a meal or drink at the clubhouse restaurant with outdoor dining available. There is also a restaurant at the golf course. This gated community in Lake of the Woods is on a private 550 acre three mile long lake.

This home sleeps at least six comfortably with plenty of closet space. The upper level includes two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the other with two twin beds. The lower level bedroom has a full size bed. The upper bathroom has a shower/tub and the lower bathroom has a large walk-in shower.

The lower level family room includes a gas fire place and full size air hockey table.

Very nice house, great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a nice lakefront property to rent for Memorial Day weekend for a group of 4 adults and 3 kids (1 toddler) and this place was perfect! Plenty of room inside and out. Kids enjoyed the plethora of wildlife and the beach was within walking distance. We didn't get around to using the paddleboat but I'm sure it would have been fun. Owners even managed to provide a gas grill at last minute for our weekend of feasting.

It was just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was delightful. The house was clean and comfortable. Based on the pictures and descriptions, it was just as we envisioned. The yard is so peaceful and relaxing. Our daily "happy hour" by the water was made even better by the view. It was nice to get away from the daily chaos of life and at the same time have a lot of things conveniently nearby. We especially liked the walking trails throughout the community. Even though the water was still a little cool to swim, the April weather was enjoyable and we had fun in the paddle boat. The lake is beautiful and we were glad we brought our kayaks. We plan to come back, but next time in the summer!
