Twenty square miles of watery fun in the heart of Virginia

Set in the middle of the three booming metropolises of Washington, D.C., Richmond, and Charlotte (each an hour to an hour and a half away), Lake Anna is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of big city life. Formed by the North Anna Dam on the North Anna River, the lake is one of the largest freshwater reservoirs in the state, and offers enough water sports to satisfy even the biggest outdoor enthusiasts. From history to wine tasting, a Lake Anna vacation rental offers something for everyone in your group.

Things to do

Try your beverage of choice, straight from the source

You'll want to bring your designated driver, because there are plenty of local wineries and distilleries to explore, including the Lake Anna Winery, right in town. While mom and dad enjoy some adult beverages, the kiddies can get their thrills at Kings Dominion theme park or panning for gold at Goodwin Gold Mine. History buffs are in for a treat, because there are lots of Civil War sites dotted throughout the area, like the Spotsylvania Courthouse Battlefield. The town of Bumpass is home to the Jerdone Castle plantation, dating from 1742.

Activities

A welcoming wonderland of water and wine

If it involves water, you can probably find it at your Lake Anna vacation rental. From swimming, fishing, and paddleboarding, to sailing, kayaking, and canoeing, the inviting waters are the perfect way to cool off in the summer. The lake draws anglers from miles around, thanks to the more than 30 species of fish that call it home. The surrounding area has miles of trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. The more indoorsy types in your travel crew will love the top-notch antiquing and wine tasting nearby.

Weather

There's a season for everything at Lake Anna

You have your pick of the seasons when you're booking a Lake Anna vacation rental, because they get them all here. While you can expect a mix of sun and rain year round, you might see a little snow in the coldest months of December to February, when the lows dip below freezing. You'll typically see highs in the 70s and 80s from May to September, soaring into the upper 80s or even 90s in July and August (conveniently there's a lake nearby). The fall leaves put on quite a display in October and November.

Natural features

Fish, fish, and even more fish in Lake Anna

Given that Lake Anna is one of the largest freshwater lakes in the state, it's no surprise that it's chock full of fish. The lake's 13,000 acres are home to more than 30 species of the scaly guys, including several types of bass, perch, and catfish, much to the delight of the anglers who flock here in droves. The surrounding lands are made up of rolling hills and verdant forests, with a scattering of pastoral farms for good measure. You're sure to encounter plenty of friendly wildlife if you get out on the trails.
