Highly recommend this lakefront paradise!

  • 5 of 5

You don't have to hesitate, this is truly a lakefront paradise! We have stayed in many vacation rentals through the years and this is the best! It is fully stocked, the kitchen has everything you could ever want to cook with, from condiments+ in the fridge to spices in the cabinet, and all the cookware and small appliances you could think of! Exceptionally clean and well appointed. It was a pleasant surprise, we had no issues arise. We were greeted with a text when we arrived stating to text or call with any questions or concerns. Great communication, before, during and after. And we received our security deposit within a week of departing. We had the maximum allowed and used every room and enjoyed it immensely. The first day we arrived we were in the kayaks right around the pier and to our delight two gorgeous, friendly swans swam right up to the pier to greet us and came back each day we were there. Kids had a ball playng in the sand, fishing off the pier, swimming in the lake and kayaking. Not to mention, the adults and kids enjoyed playing pool and ping pong downstairs and the two large flat screen TVs w cable. I have to say that the main attraction is the upper level screened in porch for all ages which provided a picturesque view of the lake and a place to relax!! The cabinet that had all the games and dvds is also an excellent idea for a rainy day, however, we were fortunate that the weather held out. We plan on returning as soon as we can get everyone together again!!

This home has everything we like in a rental property. The home is clean, the neighborhood is quiet, and grocery stores, restaurants and gas stations are all nearby. We were there for a week of visiting Civil War sites and this home was a short drive from most of them.

Great front porch overlooking the Pond!

Great overall weekend

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed ourselves. It took a day and half for me to realize we weren't on Lake Anna though--this could have just been me being naïve but I had no clue Lake of the Woods was an actual lake. We enjoyed this private lake though so it ended up being better. The house was very clean and in a great location. The weather was perfect and the use of the kayaks and the well stocked house was great.

The only complaint I have is day of arrival, check in is 4pm and when we arrived at 4:30, the house was still being cleaned. The woman cleaning left at 5:00pm. The upstairs bathroom shower would also not drain but I am sure that has a lot to do with numerous guests throughout the summer.

The sunroom on the back porch is the best part of this entire house. We ate every meal out here and it was a great way to relax without having to worry about bugs or direct sun--this was especially ideal for our two month old.

Overall, we would recommend this house to friends and family and would rebook.

Very relaxing and enjoyable vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this house several times now and have enjoyed it each time. Although, I must say, this time the place appeared to be much cleaner and tidier than previous stays....not that it was bad previously, but this time it seemed to be better. The house is well maintained and suited for all sizes of families/# of guests. The lake is so clean and perfect for any type of recreation. The community is quiet. Thank you so much for offering up your house.

A weekend to remember!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time playing in the water, kayaking, and sitting on the dock. The house was the perfect setup for our group of four adults and one baby. There were even toys for the little one! We hope to be back soon.

Perfect Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

For the second year in a row, three generations of our family enjoyed a relaxing vacation at this immaculately maintained lake house. Its location near Fredericksburg is the perfect distance for our family members to travel, and the house's waterfront setting provides ample recreational options for young and old. We would love to return again next year!
