About Bud & Cathy

We have been coming down the lake primarily to waterski for 30+ years. Always dreamed of having our own place and finally made the decision after looking at more homes than you can imagine to find just the right one. We live permanently in Northern VA and plan to make it down to the lake as often as possible, regardless of the season.

Bud & Cathy purchased this house in 2013

Why Bud & Cathy chose Mineral

We have 7 children from grade school to graduate school, so we needed a property that would hold a large group regularly (to include the Au Pair, Grandparents, and friends) and entertain all ages, young and old. And that is what we found!

What makes this house unique

We really enjoy the expansive deck, screen porch, large yard to play in, natural beach with gradual fall off which is wonderful for little ones and old ones alike. Our new boathouse is over the top with Gazebo, overhead fan, lounge furniture, large sun deck and covered boat slip for guest. Our dead-end street with cul-de-sac is great for the younger ones to bike or skate. Especially appealing is the ability to take a stroll to the Landing Restaurant, ice cream shop or convenience market in 10 minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful time this past week. We both got much done and enjoyed relaxing in your lovely lake home.

Three generations. We were all thrilled and look forward to vacationing here again. The home and furnishings were beautiful and the extras down by the lovely boathouse made it a wonderful retreat, even with two days of steady rain....we we're thrilled to have all the space and room to enjoy, even have quiet moments..... Thank you.

Had a Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 couples, old friends from long ago. Took the occasion to get together before the busy holidays. The house and property offered everything we needed. Spent most of our time next to the water at the fire pit. Traveled to the local winery for a couple hours and more less just relaxed with wonderful friends. Plenty of room throughout the house and nice gas fireplace in the family while looking out at the lake. We will definitely return!!

Great group getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had my family, 6 adults, gather for Thanksgiving. This Lake Anna rental was perfect for our needs. We were able to relax and enjoy our time together. This was aided by the size and layout of the house. We were spread out and everyone had their own rooms/bathrooms. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking a Thanksgiving dinner. We recommend this property enthusiastically.
