Wonderfully peaceful lake house just perfect for a relaxing vacation.

  • 4 of 5

With four families, it was great to be under one roof for vacation. The house was great and supplies with some many games, activities and lake toys to keep everyone busy. We all enjoyed the peaceful cove in the lake, especially the kids. The kids also enjoyed fishing right from the shore. Overall everyone hoped to come back and enjoy the home again soon. Thanks for your hospitality!

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your warm and comfy home. We especially appreciated all the extras and niceties provided. From the moment we walked in the door, our family felt right at home. And some members wished to move in permanently! :-) Our families gather each summer at a rental house, and this one was, by far, the BEST!

WONDERFUL, It was like we were visiting friends!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town to attend a wedding at Stephenson Ridge which is about 30 minutes away, so we rented this house for family to stay together. It was well suited for us with 7 adults and 2 kids staying in the 4 bedrooms with futons in 2 bedrooms. The house is well cared for and has EVERYTHING you may need to enjoy your time there. We took the kayak, canoe and SUP out on the lake and there were about 20 life jackets in the shed to fit all body sizes, including kids. The lawn games were a big hit as we gathered outside for hours. There is plenty of seating inside and out for dining for large groups and the kitchen is stocked like someone has been living here for 20 years.

It really felt like we borrowed our friend's lake house for the weekend because there was everything that you may need, and the décor of the house was very homey. It was great to be able to make big dinners without having to worry about tin foil, condiments, spices and zip lock bags for clean up.

The owner were very responsive and allowed us a later checkout as we had late flights out on the last day. Check-in was so easy with a code on the door and our names at the security gate.

The only trouble was that my siblings did not listen to my directions when I told them they had to enter the gated community at the main gate, and instead put the house address into GPS and it took them to the back gate which you can't enter if you're a guest. My advice is to put in the address of the main gate which is 102 Lakeview Pkwy, Locust Grove, VA 22508 in order to make sure that people go to the correct location. I explained to them how to get to the main gate but they didn't listen to me, they just followed their GPS.

Overall it was a wonderful stay and we hope to be back again with friends! Thanks for having us.

Owner's Response: We are pleased to hear that your entire family enjoyed our lake house. We have tried to make it fun for all age groups, and it sounds as though you took advantage of all the "lake toys". Thank you for the suggestion to include the address of the gate house for GPS purposes. Others have experienced the same problem at your siblings did. Hope to see you again!

the best home rental ever

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family weekend . We came into town for a wedding and needed a place to stay. this home had every thing we needed and more. This home was unbelievably kid friendly .

The welcome book and guide were perfect in explaining the TV Internet heating and all the amenities , as well as making you feel at home using anything in the home.

Everyone is looking for us to pick a week and meet here again . we will be looking for another week and defiantly come back again , for a week this time.
