Blue Skies At Lake Anna, A Phenomenal Waterfront Retreat
2400 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Kate
8 Guests . 3 Bedrooms . 3 Bathrooms


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.

About Lake Anna: Lake Anna is the second largest lake located entirely in Virginia. It encompasses 250 miles of shoreline and 13,000 acres of water. The lake is 17 miles long and surrounded by farms and forest.

Lake Anna has 2 sections, the main or public side and the private side. The public section consists of 9,600 acres with marinas, restaurants and commercial business. The private side is divided by 3 rock dikes and consists of 3,400 acres. There are no public boat ramps, marinas or restaurants on the private side; only homes adorn the shoreline.

Blue Skies at Lake Anna is located mid-lake on the public side, close to restaurants, marinas, Lake Anna State Park and other attractions by either boat or car.

Attractions: Lake Anna is perfect for boating, jet-skiing, fishing and water activities, but there are many other activities to enjoy while visiting this area. Some attractions include hiking trails at Lake Anna State Park, wineries (Lake Anna Winery, Mattaponi Winery, Cooper Vineyards, Weston Farms and more), Kings Dominion Theme Park, Monticello (Thomas Jefferson's Home), Montpelier (James & Dolly Madison's Home), Civil War battlefields, Bluemont Concerts and Dances, Fridays After Five, the Mineral Bluegrass Festival, fine dining, shopping and more.

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.
