We had the most marvelous family vacation with 21 of us together. The house was spacious, comfortable, and in a perfect location for access to the lake. The dock provided hours of fun for everyone, with places to sit, swim, boat, kayak, and anything else water related. Bedrooms for everyone, enough bathrooms to make it great, and gathering areas for every age. Great house.

Fire pit, lakefront and spacious rooms

This place is simply amazing. There were 17 of us, including our parents and their grandchildren, ages ranging from 7 to 19. Everyone had a great time. The place was clean, everything was in working order and all our questions were answered. There is no gym equipment, but the lake is very pleasant for swimming. We recommend that you take water shoes since the bottom of the lake where you can stand is rocky.
Kishore M.Jun 2021
Had a great time, it worked out well..Interior is great and had everything what we need in the house. Internet is glitchy and it works through satellite. Would recommend Wifi Mesh if you have any plans to work from the place.
Outside should have been much more cleaner, there were lot of insects around the house.
Whitney from Vacasa was great and helpful. We got new life jackets when asked for more life jackets for Kayaking.
Had a wonderful stay overall!

Extended family reunion for long weekend in may. Not many places at lake Anna or VA that has 10 bedrooms. Couldnt find a better house for our crowd and needs. Tons of space for socializing, awesome game room, swimming, kayaking, playground for kids, large lawn, great view. Customer service and directions to gain access were great. WiFi signal not very strong with a lot of devices accessing but Verizon signal on phone was good enough. Thanks for providing the place to have lasting family memories!
Julia W.Apr 2021
This house was perfect for a large group stay. Plenty of space, clean, and we enjoyed the large deck and game room.
Shonna W.Mar 2021
The home was very clean and I loved the view. Ideal place to get away and get some much needed rest.
Chris k.Mar 2021
We loved our stay at Great Escape & will definitely be back. The kitchen is the perfect gathering place & immediately became our hangout spot. My only “suggestion” is that you would get more wood/load. We order 2 loads ($100) and the pile of wood seemed extremely small.

Beautiful home we enjoy
Jennifer S.Nov 2020
This house was wonderful for a gathering of friends. We wanted to have enough space that everyone could feel safe and comfortable, and this house definitely delivered! The outdoor space was wonderful and we had a great time sitting on the deck watching the sunset over the lake. The kitchen is big and wonderful for cooking for a group; lots of supplies already there! Most importantly, Vacasa was SO amazing and helpful - answering any questions we had and making sure the house was perfectly clean for our stay. The helpful customer service really was the icing on the cake of a great vacation.
Jocelyn F.Oct 2020
I reacted the place for my proposal, and the house is absolutely beautiful! The proposal went exactly as planned (she said Yes!!). We had a blast and after there were plenty of rooms and spaces for all of our guests. Would definitely rented it again.
Oscar M.Sep 2020
We will definitely go back! comfortable, spacious, beautiful view & convenient access for our jetskies (just make sure to ask for the gate code in advanced). A more detailed cleaning of spiders & webs will make a big difference.
Andrew A.Aug 2020
We had a family of 9 with 2 dogs and had a wonderful time boating and swimming, golfing and enjoying time together. Numerous maintenance issues need to be addressed but these did not interfere with our fun.
Hi Andrew, thank you for your feedback. We regret we don't have more information regarding your areas of concern, as we are always happy to know how we can provide a more pleasant stay for our guests. We hope we have the chance to impress you in the future.
Lisa A.Feb 2020
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!
Susan S.Jan 2020
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!
Ryan L.Jan 2020
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!
Robin S.Dec 2019
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!
Ravi P.Dec 2019
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.
Margaret K.Sep 2019
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:)
Christopher D.Sep 2019
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.
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!
Robert B B.Aug 2019
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.
Frank C.Jul 2019
Everything was perfect... Right on the lake.
Only word of caution is the WiFi. Not anyone’s fault... but it’s very slow.
Lisa J.Jul 2019
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.
Kendra B.Jan 2019
Great space for multiple families -- games, cooking, hanging out by the fire.
WILLIAM M.Jan 2019
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.
Property met all our needs - is well maintained - good location on the lake.
The house is very comfortable, well furnished throughout. Kayaks and water rafts supplied make water enjoyable. We'll return.
Christine .Jun 2017
We loved the house. It is great for big groups. Very well maintained and clean. Has everything you need. The backyard is great too.
