Wonderful place on the water!

  • 5 of 5

We came from AZ,NY,KS,MD and PA for a celebration weekend and this gorgeous place was a big part of our wonderful memories. All was in order when we arrived--clean, tidy yet very welcoming. The owners were very accommodating with some last minute changes and a pleasure to deal with overall.

The spacious great room was perfect for gathering and sharing meals. The kitchen was well equipped and functional. And the little nooks and downstairs game room were perfect for small groups and alone time. The 13 and 15 year old found the chess set before we even unpacked! The early riser among us loved the sunrises with the mists coming off the water. Perfection!

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

Recently stayed 3 nights at Water Water Everywhere. The house was very nice and extremely well stocked particularly in the kitchen and bathroom (toiletries and toilet paper provided). Linens, bath towels, and swim towels were also provided. We really only had to bring our clothes and personal items. A canoe, kayak, and paddle board were available for use...and we used them all. The family also enjoyed the good selection of puzzles. We relaxed on the hammock, hanging chairs, and outdoor furniture both on the decks and the lakeside patio. Many games of pool were played as well. The beautiful lake views added to our relaxation. The only downside.....even though we pulled the Hokie garden flag out of the shed, wore our Hokie attire, and scattered our Hokie memorabilia around the living room.....the Hokies still lost. Patrick was a pleasure to deal with.

Best House Ever Rented on VRBO!

  • 5 of 5

I don't post reviews often, but this house is exceptional and requires a review! It was, by far, the most well-stocked VRBO rental I have ever stayed in! Usually I have to buy all the basics, like dressings and condiments, and then throw them all away once we've barely used them. This house was like living in my own home. It had everything - olive oil, whole bean coffee, seasonings - with items left in the refrigerator to use if I wanted. Besides the well-stocked kitchen, the house is a great place to gather - watch TV, look at the lake, play board games, play pool downstairs. They even have a volleyball net we set up and played several competitive games with, ladderball, a canoe, kayak, and SUP board we all enjoyed using.The beds were all comfortable with private bathrooms for each bedroom. A great home for friends as well as family! We played tennis at a middle school nearby (out the back gate) rather than use the community courts as it required a trip to the front security gate first (a further drive we didn't want to make to get the gate code, though the courts were right by the house), but the community courts were quite nice. A great location not too far for a trip to Fredericksburg to the east or even a day trip to the Shenandoah area. Enough parking for our 4 cars. If only we could have rented a boat to use on the lake (not allowed for renters), we'd then have to give it 6 stars! Thanks for a wonderful family reunion with our adult children!

First class all the way!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the absolute best that we have ever rented!! From the gorgeous location and views to all the special amenities that were provided--it was a first class establishment. My 82 year old father was with us (my 3 sisters and spouses) and he totally enjoyed looking out at the lake and having meals with everyone in the spacious kitchen and dining area. Thank you to the owners for thinking of everything that would make a vacation special!

Holy crap this house has everything!

  • 5 of 5

I've rented a number of vacation rentals in my day, and this was far and away the best appointed house I've ever seen. It has everything you need: extra toiletries, kitchen supplies for cooking and entertaining, water toys of all shapes and sizes, more beach towels and sun gear than you could imagine. Plus tons of blankets and extra pillows, even swimsuits to borrow. It seriously has everything! Plus the house itself is beautifully decorated. It's a great value. My group of 10 had a WONDERFUL Memorial Day weekend here and we would definitely come back.

Well appointed, comfortable house on the lake

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 10 stayed at this property for two nights in early May. It is a terrific property for a group, with lots of space and amenities. It is right on the lake and has a shed filled with water activities and lawn games, which was great! There is so much seating both inside and outside. The kitchen is also very well appointed and the owners had extra toiletries available for guests who forgot something at home (toothbrushes, soap, toothpaste, etc). We loved our time here. The only reason that I give it 5 stars is that the property manager was somewhat difficult to work with -- she would take days to respond to emails, would not confirm things when asked, and sent some confusing emails where she clearly did not remember the weekend we had booked for or that we had already paid. In the end, it did not matter, the property was excellent, and our deposit was promptly refunded -- but just as a warning to future renters, make sure you stay in constant communication with the property owner throughout the booking process.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our Lake House! There are many choices of places to stay, and we are pleased that you selected ours. We are also pleased that you enjoyed your stay. With regard to the communication difficulties you experienced with our property manager, we, the owners, would like to apologize in her behalf. Some very serious health problems had just surfaced in her immediate family, and her time and energy were definitely impacted. All things considered, we are happy that you enjoyed our home and hope that you will consider returning in the future.
