Cozy cottage on 5 rolling acres with expansive lake and sunset views, and two kayaks. Enjoy the still morning with a paddle, or coffee on the porch. Rent 2 jetskis on-site, perfect for water sports and fishing. Relax on the day bed with a book, or visit a local distillery, winery, or cidery. Take in historical sights, walk the Lake Anna Boardwalk and dine lakeside. 45 min to F'burg, 55 to UVA.

The space
Open floor plan, two bedrooms, bonus daybed w/ trundle, and ceiling fans in every room for that tropical feel.

Comfortable queen beds. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking in or try one of our local restaurants.

Lake Anna is the second largest lake in the state of Virginia, measuring 17 miles long with 200 miles of shoreline.

Plenty to do in the area, such as:

***The Boardwalk on Lake Anna

The prime location for retail shops, dining, and waterfront fun. Enjoy some rest and relaxation and great fun with family and friends in a tranquil setting against the breathtaking views of Lake Anna. 500′ of waterfront boardwalk; shops include a convenience store, water sports supplies, and more; sports bar & grill/ family dining. Play a round of mini-golf at The Boardwalk on Lake Anna, home to local favorite, Tim’s at Lake Anna. Tim’s is a restaurant and crab house in one, with a laidback, resort feel. Indoor and outdoor waterfront seating.

***Goochland Drive-in
Step back in time at a drive-in movie theatre.

***Lake Anna State Park
The crown jewel of Lake Anna’s local activities is Lake Anna State Park. The park spans 2,810 acres with more than 10 miles of lake frontage.

***Dickson’s Store
Dickinson’s Store has always been a local draw, remodeled to give the old country store a few modern amenities. Deli counter and home to the stone Beer Cave, housing a wide variety of unique craft beers at optimal temperatures.

Lake Anna is steeped in Civil War and American history. The most notable historical events include the Battle of Chancellorsville in Spotsylvania, which resulted in more casualties than any other engagement ever fought on Virginia soil, including the wounding of General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

***Visit the site of the May 1864 Battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse. 45-minute guided walking tours, featuring the “Bloody Angle” where the battle lasted two weeks and included bitter hand-to-hand combat.

***King's Dominion Amusement Park, 30 minutes away in Doswell
Families will enjoy thrilling rides, like Intimidator 305, Delirium, and the newest ride, Twisted Timbers. Twisted Timbers is a wooden coaster with a twist of steel—first of its kind in the mid-Atlantic—that plummets riders down a 109-foot-tall barrel roll drop and sends you twisting and turning at 54 miles per hour. Or take your kids to explore the recently expanded Planet Snoopy. Then, when you need to escape the heat, head to the park’s Soak City, which features water slides, rushing rivers, and a 650,000-gallon wave pool.

The activity options are endless! So much to do! Or just hideaway at the cottage, enjoying rural lake life. It's all good
