This WATERFRONT home offers the perfect location to enjoy everything LAKE ANNA has to offer. Blue herons swoop and fish jump throughout the protected, deep-water cove, perfect for kayaks and canoes. Covered boat house with lift and boat ramp available.

The gentle slope from the house to water's edge guarantees that guests of all ages can enjoy the waterfront and dock. Watch the kids play in the sandbox or swim in the semi-enclosed area close to the bank, or enjoy the deep water from the end of the dock.

Marvel at the huge master bedroom and bath with a private balcony lakeside. The third bedroom has its own lakeside balcony as well. Three bedrooms and two baths upstairs are complimented by two pullout couches and a full bath on the main floor.

Enjoy visits with family and friends in the open concept first floor that extends to a wide deck, patio and fire pit close to water's edge. The Internet, pool table, satellite TV, games, DVDs and books offer something for everyone.

Off-season and shoulder season weekly discounts are available at https://bit.ly/BlueSkiesLARP.

As a native Nebraskan, I always loved lakes more than oceans. However, I didn't like the cold and wind that permeates Nebraska winters, so I moved to Virginia many years ago. Combining my love of lakes with the moderate Virginia climate makes Lake Anna a dream come true.

I retired after a 30 year career in law enforcement and have moved into fun post-career jobs as winery festival coordinator and newspaper reporter. I'm also involved in volunteer activities, some of which revolved around the well-being of our children.

Feel free to ask me about the lake and the number of wonderful restaurants that we have. I wrote the 2014 and 2015 Lure of Lake Anna restaurant guides, so I've done my research.
