We had a fabulous time at this house for our friends trip for Memorial Day!
Great family friendly location!
Perfect for our family Thanksgiving. There were 11 of us. Plenty of room and plenty to do. No complaints with this family friendly rental!
Very nice place and good for what was needed
We were 2 families with young children traveling together to enjoy Lake Anna in the fall. The property was very quiet and secluded. Being on pond 1 in late September was perfect! The water was 90 degrees and we were able to enjoy lots of boating. We just wished the dock was not so shaded but we made the most of it. The hosts were very quick to respond to any questions we had and very polite. We super appreciated all the help! Overall the house was adequate. It probably could use a deep cleaning. There was quiet a bit of dust, some mildew in the master shower area and worn out rugs. Also we found mouse poop in the clean, put away dishes. I totally get it though...the house is in the woods. Don't get me wrong though, the house was spacious and perfect for out needs. The kitchen counter space is a bit limited but we easily adapted. If you are not overly picky then I would definitely recommend this place!
Excellent lake front property
We had a great time, and made use of the boat and canoe. The deck provided a great view of the lake and the barn had a fun game room. Would definitely revisit if in the area again.
I will reiterate what other people have posted in the fact that the warm side of the lake in the month of August is extremely warm. The water in lagoon 3 was 96 and by the dock of the house was 100. It was jacuzzi water. It was a nice halfway point between families to enjoy some rest and relaxation together.
Even better in person
The house and property is even better in person!
We had 10 adults and 2 dogs and had plenty of space. The only place we bumped elbows was in the kitchen, but each family took turns making dinner so it wasn’t a big deal.
The paddle boats were a hit and being on the cove was perfect for the kids to play around in the water with no boat traffic.
The pool table in the barn only had one working pool stick and the fuse ball table is wobbly.
We’re already talking about going back next year!
At Turtle Cove, there is lots to do! Take your boat out for the day, swim, fish or just enjoy reading a book by the water. The home has a canoe and rowboat for visitors to use (special
waiver must be signed for access to these), and also features a horseshoe court as well as a firepit
to enjoy the evenings by the lake. Should you end up with a rainy day, enjoy the selection of
movies, books or board games. Spend the afternoon in the 'Barn' playing pool or watching your favorite DVD's. You'll always find something to do at Turtle Cove! Local channels only are offered on the TV in the house. There is no cable or WiFi access.
Charlottesville, Fredericksburg and Richmond are all within an hour drive from Turtle Cove, so take an excursion and see some local sites! Wineries and breweries are also a fun way to spend an afternoon in the area.
