Booked this house for all the natural light for a sewing retreat with 10 ladies. Plenty of room and lots of light. House is very roomy and the ladies enjoyed their private rooms. Had a few issues that have been reported and resolved. Hopefully we will be back again next year for our retreat again!

Spacious home and grounds for multiple families. Great Lake front setting, more than ample outdoor seating, use of 3 kayaks and life preservers. Large walk in kitchen pantry was great to store our food for the weekend so as not to clutter all the kitchen space. 2 oversized refrigerators (though the ice makers did not work)and 2 dishwashers made for easy cleanup. We’d love to make this a family tradition!

We had a great trip to the Great Escape at Lake Anna this winter for new years! 5 couples and the accompanying army of children all had plenty to do with the amenities and toys and space to roam. Love it and hope to return in the future!

This was a great house for a large family Christmas gathering! The focus of the home is clearly as a summer home, so we needed to buy more china plates and wine glasses - but a small price to pay for a spacious, beautiful vacation home!

The house is huge, well furnished with a big kitchen and large bedrooms and bathrooms. The rooms are well furnished & the beds very comfortable. We loved the large games area in the basement, huge family room on the main floor and cosy den on the second floor - each with its own TV setup. For our large group of 20 with ages from 2-80, this was a real asset. Also the house was well heated - which is often not the case in older big houses. We loved the large yard, lake access and fire pit.
There are a couple of things that could be better - the Kitchen has only one 4-burner range and one oven which was tight for a large group, especially for Thanksgiving. However there were 3 refrigerators, which was great. Also we would have liked more silverware in the kitchen.
Overall, a great place for a big family reunion.

We loved the house and boat house.
Very roomy for 4 adults and 3 dogs. I stayed on the main level w bedroom, kitchen, main livingroom and great views since I was in a boot and couldn't do lots of stairs. The house was clean and very bright Great view of the lake. Perfect deck for coffee and cocktails. We rented a pontoon boat, the covered boat dock was perfect. The firepit was awesome for s'mores and hot dogs. You will need to buy firewood, and we brought our own skewers. All in all, loved it. Looking forward to staying there again.
(I do not suggest breakfast or lunch sandwiches from the corner store up the road....BUT their fried chicken was great:)

I'll keep this short and simple. The house itself is great. Very spacious, looks as advertised! However, during our stay (Sat-Mon), the two refrigerators barely got below 50 degrees F, the water would cut off COMPLETELY any time you tried to take a shower, you have to wait 10-15 minutes before you can flush the toilet again, and the wifi was basically non-existent. Major improvements need to be made to get your money's worth, but there's potential if Vacasa addresses these issues.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to leave your review with us, Christopher. The fridges all worked fine on inspection. The water is fixed with a new filtration system installed as well. The WiFi can be spotty in the area, but it is currently the best available. We hope to see you again!

House worked well of our large group. Location is super convenient for on-lake activities as well as local shopping.
Lorraine C. Aug 2019
Lots of room for a large group. Kitchen was great. Fire pit area was great also. The only improvement I would suggest would be to put in a beach area for easy walk in for families with small children. There is a perfect spot for it near the sandbox.

Everything was perfect... Right on the lake.
Only word of caution is the WiFi. Not anyone’s fault... but it’s very slow.

The 10 bedrooms makes this a very comfortable house for large groups of people. Multiple living/family rooms gives space for different activities, etc. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances of every type - we did bring our own Keurig. The dock provides fun at the water - with the 4 kayaks provided!
Robert W. Jun 2019
All of the house, the property, the dock and water (with a number of kayaks supplied) and the attractions and grocery nearby fit our 4 generation family perfectly.

Great space for multiple families -- games, cooking, hanging out by the fire.

beautiful home with lake view.
Donna R. Sep 2017
We loved our great escape! Wonderful layout, very spacious accomodations for our family get together. The kitchen was amazing. So much room. Loved having the 2 commercial type refrigerators. The yard & fire pit are beautiful. Having a covered boat house was so convenient! The house interior was very clean & neat. Had every amenity.

The house is very comfortable, well furnished throughout. Kayaks and water rafts supplied make water enjoyable. We'll return.
