One of the THE most beautiful properties on the lake with THE most supportive staff!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of ladies came together to enjoy a long weekend away to relax and unwind....thanks to Busbee's Retreat, we were able to enjoy our time away in complete comfort!!! The estate is beautifully laid out to give large groups PLENTY of space to enjoy privately or congregate in groups. The kitchen is large and complete with wine fridge! The bedrooms were perfectly situated to accommodate all of us but the real showstopper was the lakeside view!!!! The dock was our little piece of heaven to relax and enjoy some of the rare sunlight this spring!!! Those of us that enjoy activities had plenty of toys to play with as there are floats, 2 kayaks and a canoe to enjoy....I brought my paddleboard as well and we hit the water often! Saturday evening was the perfect chance to enjoy the LARGE open firepit and s'mores never tasted so good!!! The owners went above and beyond for us, not only invited us into their lovely estate but also in accommodating some of our special needs as well as leaving us a Welcome Care Package complete with a bottle of wine from the local vineyard! We didn't just fall in love with Busbee's....we are passionate about this jewel on the water!!!

Perfect for our Moms' Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

There were plenty of communal and private work spaces with enough beds for our large group. We received quick replies from the gracious owners and were made to feel very welcome. Serene views with cozy and updated furnishings made our gathering a wonderful retreat-like experience! Can't wait to returm!

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do it justice to how beautiful it really is. The view of the lake from the living room and master bedroom are amazing. It was able to fit everyone comfortably and really allowed us to relax and get away from it all. Our first night we did unfortunately had no power due to the weather but Julea was more than accommodating and easy to reach with any questions to help us get through the night. One of the best stays we've ever had and we look forward to hopefully returning.

Sterling, Va

Total Package

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful property had all the bells and whistles! If you're looking for total relaxation.... look no further! My party was not only amazed at the house itself but the beautiful views of nature. It was the Rest & Relaxtion we all was longing for. We did not want to leave. We made a nice fire and sat around the fire pit, with a cup of hot chocolate and made s'mores. There was never a dull moment exploring this property. It was simply peaceful and beautiful.

The Owners was right at my finger tips. So we had no worries!

Only downside is....we wish we had booked a longer stay. But on the upside the owners alowed us to have a later checkout.

Great job, Jeff & Julea
