This house is older and built without passing a stringent permit process, so it has some odd little things— like the 4’ head clearance going down the stairs into the basement. The spaces are not grand or commodious if you’re used to luxury, but they work. And this place matches my style/values better than any other house on lake Anna. The one thing that really ought to be fixed was the first floor bed. The center support is broken and the head is lower than the foot. Previous reviewers had mentioned that the beds were terribly uncomfortable— I think this is where that gripe comes from. It would have been unsleepable, but we built temporary supports out of books. Then it worked fine. I will probably return to this house again!
We had 4 couples (and 8 kids) come together in this house. The house is super spacious and has tons of beds. The kids LOVED the movie room. The house is very pretty, easy to get to, and has access to insta cart and resturants close by (I say this only because there are parts of Lake Anna that have nothing close by). The kitchen is a great space to hang out with lots of counter space and seats. The only reason I didn't give the house 5 stars is because the house is almost brand new and has several things broken on it: a bed was broken (thank goodness we didn't need to use it or that would have been a big issue, there were several cabinets broken, and the screen near the lake area is ripped). The only other thing I'll say is that the internet is very bad, which is fine for things like phones, etc. but you can't watch any TV and can't use the movie room. The only thing that saved us was that my husband downloaded some movies on his computer before we went so we were able to watch those connected to the theatre screen. I will also note that I messaged the owner twice the week before we were suppose to arrive asking small questions (like is there a high chair, etc) and no one responded. We did love the house and the pros do outweigh the cons.
The house is clean and spacious. It has most of what you need for a great weekend retreat. We particularly enjoyed the fire pit where we roasted marshmallows, made s’mores, and had lots of story telling. And the dock was perfect for our boat. Didn’t miss seeing the amazing sunrise! Thank you Anna’s Oasis!
