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.

Renewing our vows by the Lake . .

  • 5 of 5

My beautiful Bride Beth and I renewed our vows by the water on a spectacular day with all our friends and family. Just just as wonderful as our original wedding day. It was picture perfect. Wish we could make this an annual visit. Thanks so much for allowing us to share your property.

Team McDonald

  • 4 of 5

A few years ago, the McDonald family decided to initiate a yearly family vacation. Our first location was North Myrtle Beach. It was great time. Being the matriarch of the group, I thought it would be fun to explore different settings; to experience something for everyone. We have stayed in the mountains Pennsylvania and Lake Norris in Tennessee prior to landing at Emery Point in Virginia. It is not easy to find accommodations for our tribe. Our ages for 2017 ranged from 75 years young to 2 years old. We require many bedrooms and bathrooms and a kitchen and dining area large enough for family meals. After spending 2017 at Emery Point, we came to a group conclusion that we needed to look no further for the perfect McDonald vacation spot! Emery Point has everything to meet our needs, and that is not easy!

Emery Point has so much to entertain the family that we couldn’t get it all done during our week’s stay. The enclosed swim area was awesome for the little ones and those less adventurous. We had our own boat, water skis, tubes, and water boards; we rented kayaks. The kids spent hours on the water, many had their first ski lesson.

The family member who requires wheelchair access and loves to fish was thrilled with the opportunities that Emery Point offered her. If you just wanted a little quiet time, there were plenty of spaces to retreat. The large porches, pavilion, gazebo, playground, decks and grounds were all utilized; with our large group, you sometimes need your space!

If you have groceries, you never need to leave. Of course, we did find some great restaurants nearby. We did venture out to Lake Anna State Park to pan for gold, and there was some golfers in the group that visited some of the excellent golf courses. There are many places to explore within a short drive, but most chose to stay on our little paradise peninsula.

I won’t say it was perfect, but close. Mr. Emery has been keeping us up to date on the improvements being made, and we are looking forward to our 2018 vacation at Emery Point.

Made a wish come true

  • 5 of 5

Long story short, my 5 year old granddaughter was diagnosed with HLH and Leukemia and as she struggled for 6 weeks in the hospital, I asked if she had one wish what would that be? Her wish was to spend a week at the lake with all her family. Knowing that was no easy task at such short notice, I came upon Emery Point that would accommodate our big crew...ranging from 4 months to 85 years old. Jim was beyond understanding and accommodating our request and Emery Point exceeded our expectations. We spent a wonderful week together. The kids LOVED their little swimming spot inside the deck, they water skied and knee boarded (Yes, Hailey was well enough to also). On our last day, we had a "jumping Olympic contest" off the Gazebo. That was the kids favorite all week. Having the road paved allowed her to learn all over again how to ride her scooter, as well as all the grandkids LOVING to ride their scooters. The house was so large and everyone was so comfortable and ample space for 22 people. The highlight was we were there during the full eclipse and was able to snap a shot of the entire crew under the eclipse. We believe it was all in His timing because the darkness of her illness the past year is only a brief departure from the light. I can't thank Jim enough for making "A Wish Come True"!! There were huge smiles all week from all!!

Owner's Response: I find it difficult to write a response without being teary eyed but am so happy our property fit your needs and her wish. Very special indeed. So much to do here but yest the GAZEBO jumping is always the top choice. I must remind families to bring their scooters . . sounds fun. I know you are going to Disney next so have fun and keep in touch. God Bless your family and especially be with Hailey.

Beautiful place for a retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect time of year to be here, it was gorgeous! Weather and water were both warm. Days were long and sunset and sunrises were the best. Enjoyed the outdoor firepit and loved the huge dining table on the deck. Well designed place for a large group of all ages, well-stocked kitchen.

Owner's Response: Well thanks for your kind words. It is surprising just how warm the water is early June. I think it has to do with the depth of the water around the Point. It never freezes in the winter like the north end of the lake can do. Also, our swimming harbor is not real deep so the sun helps warm it up. Everyone is swimming even earlier on Memorial Day weekends so yes i agree on the nice water temps. Like you said you just can't beat facing the west across the water for the terrific sunsets. Be well and thanks again.

This place has it all! Absolutely phenomenal!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been to Emery Point several times and we have decided there is no reason to even try to find something better. It doesn't exist. The property is beautiful.The house is incredible. And the owners are just wonderful! There is 15 of us ranging in age from 1 to 65. And every one of us has a wonderful time when we are there! You will not be disappointed if you book with the Emerys.
