Beautiful sunrise in Lake of the Woods

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during Thanksgiving to have our own retreat while visiting family in the area. My Mom lives in the same community so we know the area well after visiting her for years. This house is on the lake with its own dock. The sunrise from the screened porch is amazing. This house had everything we needed and was clean and in good shape. I’ll definitely stay here again on future visits to the area. Our experience was excellent. We are runners and running in this community is easy. The roads are quiet and there are really nice parks. Right near this house is a beach and a park with a walking path. From the Church parking lot you can access the Civil War Battlefield trail called the Battle of the Wilderness. It is a nice 2 mike walk or jog. This neighborhood is great access to the Fredericksburg/ Chancellorsville/ Spotsylvania Civil war areas. Fredericksburg itself is about 15 minutes drive. Plenty of shopping. Great historic district. Nice restaurants. The train ride to DC is a neat excursion. Can also go to Kings Dominion for a day trip from here. There is a lot to do in this neighborhood and in the surrounding area. As they say in the show Girls “Boredom is for the dull and unimaginative.”

Owner's Response: Awesome! You are 100% correct! This is an amazing area with great things to see and enjoy! I’m so thrilled that you were able to explore and experience a handful. Maybe next time Montpelier or the Shenandoah mountains will be a must see. Thank you for staying with us. 😊

What a blessing this place is!!!

  • 5 of 5

I would say this place was perfect in every way! The location on the lake could not have been better. It’s on the lake in a little cove with lots of good fishing. There is a canoe and two kayaks to keep the kids happy. The house is stocked with with games and videos and even a pool table! The kitchen was better stocked with kitchen utensils, pans and dishes than my own kitchen at home. The grill was very nice!!! We used the gas grill but there is also a charcoal one. We used one of their fishing rods as well as most of their life jackets.

We took 5 of our children ages 10-18 and they never wanted to leave. My husband summed up the whole place nicely- he said it wasn’t just a super nice place, it was a BLESSING!!!

I can’t end this without mentioning how nice Lynn was to work with. She was helpful and just sweet as could be! Thank you!!!!!❤️❤️❤️

Wonderful spot

  • 5 of 5

The Lakefront home was great! There was more than enough room for my family of 8 and room to spare. The porch overlooking the lake was wonderful! And there is a table right down by the lake as well. The house was fully equipped with everything you need - especially the kitchen. We didn't stay long enough to enjoy the kayak or the pool table on the lower level, but they were inviting! My dog really enjoyed swimming in the lake and playing with the next door neighbor's dog. Neighbors are very close, but friendly. If you are looking for a bit of privacy this isn't the best choice. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay.

Beautiful view, easy rental

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have been at the Lakefront Family Escape and once again it was a very easy rental, and a relaxing weekend. Lynn is absolutely fabulous to work with. Questions and concerns are promptly addressed. The house accommodates 10 adults very easily, the kitchen is completely stocked and the view cannot be beat!! We will definitely be back next year!
