About the property

House, 7 Bedrooms, (Sleeps 18-22) Off Season 4 Day weekend rate.

Welcome . . This is our home and not a business. We travel extensively and rent a few of the weeks during our travel dates. This varies from year to year. Some years we have donated to such groups as Life Net and a few Christian Youth Groups.

Our property is perhaps the ultimate for family reunions. Spacious and private with so much to offer your family. Reunions are very special here. We are located on the end of a private peninsula. Faces west for great sunsets. You'll love our private harbor for your swimming enjoyment. Our private boat ramp is here on our property. Boat Ramp with docks for several boats.

WEDDINGS - Here you can have your ceremony, reception and your honeymoon all on the same piece of heaven. Weddings are limited to 75 people. We are selling the property next door where we previously parked many cars for large weddings.

Local Catering available with tents for weddings.

You may bring boats, Jet skiis, Canoes, sailboats and launch them at our own private deep water concrete boat ramp on the South side of the property.

We have lots covered decks. Enjoy an evening camp fire by the water.

Why The Owner chose Bumpass

We built our house with entertaining and our own family reunions in mind. Designing the decks with shelter from the sun and rain allows your family to enjoy outside deck activity no matter what the weather.

We built a seawall around to protect the property fro storms. Then added a Gazebo, docks, and boat ramp to maximize a second to none waterfront view.

We are located at the South end of Lake Anna where there's less boat traffic, deeper, cleaner water, fantastic views and terrific sunsets.

It is a very peaceful property but still allows families to take full advantage of all water activities. For protected swimming we built a sheltered harbor so we could swim without worries of boats passing by too close. This property is truly a piece of Heaven on Earth.

What makes this house unique

There's so much to do on our property that it's hard to describe it all.

So many places to sit and relax, so many areas to have fun.

Did we mention our deck on the roof to star gaze with an unobstructed view?

You can bring one or several boats, sailboats, personal watercraft , pontoon boat or rent one from a local marina.

One comment we often hear is that parents can spend quality time with their children here. So much to do together without the distraction of boardwalks etc as in Ocean Beach Rentals. Here you get to enjoy all the boating, swimming, jumping off the Gazebo, use the kayaks, canoe, playing games both inside and out, rest in a hammock under a tree. Watch the shooting stars from our roof deck. We can play board games with your kids or grandkids. And then there is the fishing off the docks. You can all be together or have your space in one of the many sitting areas like the Koi Pond. Sit and listen to the waterfall, watch the fish and relax.

2015 Reflection Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet place in the beginning of the year to pray and reflect about the past year and set goals for the next year. Emery Point was the perfect place for our group this winter. The first thing we noticed was how many stars we could see in the clear night sky. What a peaceful and beautiful place. The big living rooms were great to gather in and there were also many places to go and sit and be alone to reflect. We loved this place.

My group was able to enjoy the whole weekend but I had to rush back 2 hours away in the middle of the night since my wife was having a baby. It was about 2 weeks from the due date and we did not have a name picked out yet. Plus we did not know if the baby was a boy or girl. Early in the morning Emery Jane was born :) Her name will always remind us of your beautiful place, the crazy drive back home, and the great start to our new year!

Owner's Response: Wow, What an honor to have a child named sharing our name Emery and our property at Emery Point, Lake Anna. We had to sit back for a minute when we heard the news. First being so happy for you and your new bundle of joy and then for the honor of naming after us. We built the property in early 80's and this is the warmest most thoughtful thing that we have experienced to date. So glad we can share our property with your Christian Group. See you again in Jan . . next month. Jim, Laura, Harley and Charlie Emery

What a gorgeous property for our Williams family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

It took a long time for the Williams families to get together but now that we did we're going to keep it up each year. Six families with Gramps and Nana all on the same property with so much to do. The photos do not do it justice. Our highlights were star gazing on the roof deck, everyone (except Nana) jumped off the gazebo into the water. What a hoot that was.

We had a horse shoe playoff where the boys beat the girls but to be fair the girls beat the boys at Volleyball so it's a draw. We rented Kayaks, a canoe and a Pontoon boat and explored the very long lake and restaraunts along the way.

Our campfires had us telling ghost stories and eventually sing a longs.

There are no words to describe our time together other than stupendous.

Gramps liked to fall asleep in front of the KOI pond in the afternoons. Mike wants to add in that we could water ski starting right from the docks.

The kids made the Emery's a flag with all their signatures and well wishing.

Thanks so much for the opportunity of our family finally coming together. The William's family. PA, NY, NJ,MI,Fla and Darby England.

Absolutely perfect for any family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

I can not imagine more perfect location for any family reunion or special occasion! Being on a point, the home is surrounded by water on 3 sides and the views are spectacular! Our family spent a long weekend at Emery Point as the owners had donated a weekend getaway as part of fund raising event for Bethany Christian Services and their work with special needs adoptions.

Our family enjoyed jumping in the lake, playing volley ball and horse shoes, grilling, spending hours sitting on the porch, and more hours playing games in the great room. Everyone in our family absolutely LOVED the home on Lake Anna and we definitely plan to go back again!

Owner's Response: We feel blessed that we could support such a great cause. It's heart warming to "give back" when ever we can. Glad your family liked our property. It's a very special place. See you again some time in the future.

Wonderful wedding location!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful wedding week at Emery Point. There was plenty of room for everyone and it was so nice to have family and friends able to spend the week with us. I received so many compliments and inquiries about the property and how it was so beautiful. We had a blast and would wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone!
