About Mark Ainsworth

We are lifelong resident of Virginia. My wife and I had a dream to build a second home for family and friends but once our kids grew up and went away to college we found ourselves not going to the lake as often as we used to so we decided to offer it up to a few rentals to offset some of the expense. Little did we know that the floodgates would open and our home became a favorite for many families that want to come back for return vacations and getaways. It is our long term desire to be able to retire at our Lake Anna home within the next few years and enjoy it all to ourselves even though our home has become the MOST POPULAR HOME on Lake Anna year in and year out.

Mark Ainsworth purchased this house in 2005

Why Mark Ainsworth chose Mineral

We built it from the ground up after seeing the 'Lot for Sale' signs while passing by on our boat when the community was first created. The views from the water were incredible when sitting in front of this lot and we could just imagine how beautiful the views would be from the house once we cleared all the forest away between the house and the waterfront. It took a few months to secure the land and ultimately get approval for our Luxury Log Home but we ended up being the first home to be built in this new upscale community even before the roads were put in. Our dream became reality after carefully choosing the home package from hundreds of log home companies. Every detail was custom as we imagined them. It is centrally located to all that makes Lake Anna great and before we could even move in we had people begging to buy it but we did not build it to sell .....we built it to enjoy our dreams! Never been disappointed for even one minute. Great neighborhood, Great People and Spectacular Home....what more could we ask for

What makes this house unique

Luxury and Logs combined with incredible views that are second to none. Our property is situated within 1/2 mile of a sandbar peninsula that washes sand all across our part of the lake and created beautiful natural sandy waterfront beach and most unique is the sandy lake bottom so you never walk in mud. The water is crystal clear everywhere from our beach to our boathouse which is 250 feet out from the waters edge.

Incredible House for a multi family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This house, the location and the owner make this house a perfect choice for a large family or multi family vacation. We had 4 different families for a total of 24 people and there was more than enough space. The yard and the dock are extremely practical for young kids as it is very open and shallow water. We had 6 kids that could swim unassisted and 6 that wore puddle jumpers and the shallow calmer water was perfect for everyone. The dock is very nice, with a screened in table and plenty of chairs to go along with 2 slips.

The owner responds almost instantly to all messages and was very easy to work with for the week. They have a pretty fun game room in the garage with pool table, air hockey table, 2 couches and a full size fridge for rainy days. The tables and seating for meals was also perfect for a very large group . The kitchen is large and we often had 6 to 8 people in there with still plenty of room to move around.

We used the fire pit 4 nights and there is plenty of wood there. Our group loved our stay there and would HIGHLY recommend this house to anyone looking to vacation on Lake Anna

Great week on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Pulling in the driveway off of the quiet neighborhood road you are instantly hit with a beautiful view of the lake. The lot is large and has a nice flat lawn leading to the lakes edge. The driveway was nicely paved with a turnaround circle. It was a little difficult squeezing 3 full size trucks and SUV's with boat trailers in there but we managed. The house itself is an impressive structure and really has that “lake house” feel. Unfortunately the grass was really tall when we arrived on Sunday and was not cut until that Friday. We avoided using the lawn for corn hole and other activities throughout the week because of this. The mulch beds, deck and the pavers around the fire pit could use a little maintenance as well (spraying/removing of weeds/sealer). We got quite a few splinters from the deck.

The great room in the house couldn't be any better. It allows for everyone to be in one space at the same time with no crowding. Plenty of seating to eat as well as lounge. The house has plenty of beds, the showers were always hot and the AC units kept the house nice and cool. The entry door off of the deck was damaged and had a "Do not use" sign taped to the wall to keep guests from using it. This was an inconvenience when we were grilling, frying fish and steaming crabs and gaining entry back into the kitchen as well as general entry in and out from the deck.

The dock is really nice. Absolute perfect spot on the lake for watersports. We had 3 boats. The 2 boat lifts worked great and kept our boats from banging up against the dock. The 3rd we anchored just off the dock that was easy to get to. The screen porch was nice and the structure itself had plenty of place to escape the sun. The sand shoreline made for easy access to the water with kayaks and paddleboards. The water wasn't too deep and was comfortable lounging around on inflatables. The neighbor was even friendly and allowed our group to use his water trampoline.

All in all we really enjoyed our stay at this property and would recommend to others. We are not a group that harps on the bad and we always make the best out of our stay. The pros outweighed the cons. The cons only being maintenance items.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words about our home. We are so sorry the grass had not been cut prior to your arrival and certainly expect the lawn service to be on site every week. The only thing we can think is that with all the rain we have been experiencing this Summer, the lawn service must not have felt they could bring in their mowers without all the damp and wet ground. We apologize for the inconvenience. As for the broken dining room door. We had just discovered the door needed a major repair earlier that morning upon our arrival to inspect the house before your arrival. We are still waiting for the Anderson Doors Mechanical Parts to arrive so it can be functional again. We really strive to make sure our home is as good as possible every week so our guests will want to return over and over again. These negative items are definitely not the norm. Come again and everything will be just as perfect as all the good things you mentioned.

Wonderful location. Large home, lots of space for eating meals together, very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. Game room was a big hit!

Lovely unique place, right on the lake,beautiful view, great vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place!!! -- we have 23 in our family including our children and grandchildren so finding a reasonable place with enough room is always a bit of a challenge -- we usually end up with kids sleeping on airbeds or pull out sofas -- but we had plenty of beds and space for everyone!! The house was very well furnished inside and with a big lawn for our daily soccer tournaments and then jumping off the dock into the lake-- What fun! -- the owner was super responsive to any concerns we had -- When we drove up to start our vacation, one of my young grandson shouted, " Lincoln logs !!-- a house made out of lincoln logs!!" we all loved it !!
