ABOUT PINE LANDING, CLARKSVILLE, & KERR LAKE

Pine Landing is a highly versatile home, and not many homes at Kerr Lake are able to be this accommodating; Pine does it to perfection perched right on the shore!

For the tight-knit family gathering at the house, they will see the accommodations keep them together comfortably, each doing what they wish. Play games using the high-speed Wi-Fi, read a book in the sun room, whip something up in the large kitchen, lay out on the sun deck, gather in the screened porch to rock and get caught up with one another, be delighted by the brilliant 72" Sony Bravia Hi-Def TV with the Sony Bravia surround sound system, take a walk across the street to the cluster of apple trees where deer spend a lot of time, swim off the dock, or just take that well deserved nap.

Sometimes, it's a family inviting a second family to join together at Pine Landing for a much busier week. Pine Landing is ready. Swimming at the dock every day, check! Got a boat, bring it! Don't have a boat, we'll help you rent one for the whole week and you will keep it at the dock of the house every night. Tuesday night, it's Bingo at the Community Center supporting the Ruritans! Wednesday, back at Pine, it's pizza and game night in the sunroom! Early in the morning, the Dads and kids all get up early to go on a guided canoe tour, meanwhile the Moms go to the Amish furniture factory a couple of towns over. The history buff in the family made tour reservations at a local gem they have on their list - Prestwould Plantation. Prestwould Plantation is the most intact and best documented pre-Civil War plantation surviving in Southside Virginia. And, if golf is your game, there's Kinderton Country Club featuring a Donald Ross designed course just five minutes from Pine Landing

Perhaps your whole family is all about the lake - imagine the fun your family can discover at Pine Landing. You are at a huge, lake-front home where playing in the lake, getting out on a boat, and having fun in the sun is all there is on your agenda ... for the whole week. You've got 800 miles of shoreline and 49,000 acres of water as your playground. After a great day of family time outside, freshly tanned, you come back to the house and grill your favorite meal. The aroma coming off the grill sets everyone's appetite! Sit, relax, enjoy dinner, have that beverage and rest knowing everything is just fine at Pine Landing.

The back yard is huge with a sloping walk to the lake and your own private dock with ladder. There is plenty of water depth for your big boat and launching ramps are less than five minutes from the house. So, bring your whole family, your boats and jet skis, and get ready to have plenty of quality time together. Oh, the dog is welcome, too.

Whatever your plans, here is more about the house!

ABOUT THE HOUSE

The house has a main level and a 'cottage' level which traces back to the house's history. In the 1950's after Kerr Lake was formed, just a summer cottage was on this land. Years later, my family built the house which stands today and massively renovated the summer cottage.

The main level has all of the major parts of the home - living room, sitting area around the wood-burning fireplace (not available in the summertime), dining area, kitchen, screened porch, open porch with grill, laundry room, and a full bathroom in the hall. There are two bedrooms: the Main Master Bedroom, with en-suite, has a king-size bed, a 32' HDTV and DVD player, two closets, and French doors opening out to a deck with a lake view. The Main Second Bedroom also has a king-size bed, a 32' HDTV and DVD player, a large closet, and two dressers. Both of these rooms also have luggage stands to make unpacking easier.

The adults enjoy this main level of the house. The living room boasts a wood burning fireplace (available when outside temperatures are 50 and below), the 72" Sony Bravia high definition TV coupled with the Sony Bravia home theater surround sound system, cable TV with 230+ channels, cloth and leather furniture. The kitchen open concept allowing the cooks to remain involved with the action in the living room, or friends may join the cooks by sitting at the kitchen six-seat island.

About six steps down from the main living area you arrive on the cottage level in the sunroom which has plenty of seating, many books, and two sets of French doors that reveal an open, sunny deck with lounge chairs and end tables.

Off the sunroom, there is the entrance (with a door) to the cottage. You enter the cottage living room which has a large window looking out to the lake, plenty of seating, and a 42" HDTV with DVD. The kids can gather here - they have their own living room (that door comes in handy if they get too loud), their own cable TV with 230+ channels, three bedrooms and two full baths, and separate HVAC system. The showers in these rooms have pre-set temperature maximum control for added peace of mind.

The cottage master bedroom has a queen-size bed and en-suite bathroom; the second bedroom also has a queen-size bed and en-suite, and the third bedroom – which is Pine's fifth bedroom - has two twin beds. The twin bedroom shares the bathroom of the second bedroom by entering a different door (think of a Jack & Jill bathroom). The couch in the cottage’s living room has a unique pull out bed that inflates by using a special electric air pump and is available to families with 11 or 12 people (the air pump is provided to you when you pick up the house keys).

For a schematic of the house’s layout, see the photos section.

ABOUT PARKING

There is plenty of parking for cars and trailers because there is a large, circular driveway, and there is a spur off leading to the additional parking area by the garage (sorry, the garage itself is not available for use).

Situated Kerr Lake, also known as Buggs Island Lake, is a 49,000 acre lake that has 800 mile of shoreline and it straddles the Virginia/North Carolina border. The lake is an Army Corps of Engineers property used for flood control and is a drinking water supply for Virginia Beach.

The rules that govern the lake are set by the Corps. One highlight of the rules is that approximately a small 30% of the shore was allowed to be developed for homes, and the remaining 70% is thick with trees and wildlife. What this means for you is the lake is very quiet and never, ever cluttered with boats. It is very common that on sunny summer days with great big blue skies and warm weather you will see no more than about 20 boats on the water. This makes for comfortable boat rides, a safer environment for skiing and tubing, and an opportunity to revel in the beauty of nature without having to dodge a boat or jet ski every 15 seconds. If you have ever been on a busy lake, you know exactly how it can damper an otherwise beautiful day.

Clarksville is a classic American small town. There's just about everything you need in town, and many of your wants are there, too. Plenty of small shops for knick-knacks, an awesome bait and tackle shop, antique stores, a full-size grocery store that carries just about anything you can imagine. The town and others nearby like to have festivals during the summer, encouraging people from the region to join in celebrating the lake, wine, various fruits, etc. Speaking of fruits, during the summer be sure to look for the fresh vegetable and fruit stands that will pop up in town. The asparagus and strawberries are exceptional!

Notes:
Pine Landing offers those families who want to get away from the busy, touristic spots, and finally get the respite they desire. Bring your watercraft or rent one and keep it at the house's private dock. Swim, play, boat, ski, sunbathe, and spend good quality time together. In Clarksville, the small town life is filled with festivals, so be sure to ask me about what is scheduled in the area during your stay. If you enjoy antique shopping, furniture shopping, and furniture made by highly-skilled craftsmen, there is a network of towns to visit. There is also Prestwould Plantation just minutes from the house. Prestwould allows visitors to look back to yesteryear's South; a plantation home where slaves worked the fields. There are great restaurants to go to right there! Two you do not want to miss! Again, if you are interested in any of the above, ask me for more detailed information and I'll have it to your email box quickly.
