Overview

About the property

Lakehouse, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Enjoy watching the hummingbirds feed at this newly renovated lakefront home on Virginia’s largest lake. Hummingbird Haven has beautiful views of one of the world’s best year-around freshwater fishing lakes with over 800 miles of shoreline and 50,000 acres of water. Kerr Lake/Buggs Island Reservoir is surrounded by more State and Federal Parks than private property.

Enjoy virgin timber that time has forgotten. Rock in the double swing or rocking chairs while watching the sun fade over the untouched forest. View bald eagles soaring daily from the nest across the lake. Pull your boat (rental available) right up to your private dock and barbecue at water’s edge. This treasure is located in a private subdivision with miles of paved roads, walking trails and a private airstrip for your arrival by plane. View deer, squirrels, eagles, ducks, geese and hummingbirds from your dining room table. Golf at the local golf course located approximately two miles away. Drive to excellent restaurants and antique shops in the quaint little town of Clarksville located less than ten minutes away. Tour historic Prestwood Plantation or visit Occoneechi State Park visitor’s center to view Indian artefacts and history. Don’t miss the fall season for excellent striper fishing and spectacular views as the leaves change colors to bright yellows, oranges and reds.

Nice rustic home with plenty of parking space for boat and trailer.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property with plenty of parking space for our boat and trailer. Easy access. Nice rustic home with a great view of the lake. Plenty of room with two bedrooms upstairs and one down. The mattress in the master suite was a bit firm for us, so we chose the other bedroom which had a topper on the mattress making it a little less firm. Also could use a couple more blankets that fit the beds. Quiet and peaceful location with a dock for our boat. The only negative was that when we were there in October the lake was at a very low level, 7 feet below normal, and we could not use the dock with the house since there was only 14 inches of water at the end of the dock! It could have been pushed out further to give us access but was not, and it was too heavy for us to do it. So we had to rent a slip at the Clarksville marina for the week which was an added expense. This was disappointing, but we understood that the lake was unusually low this year. Otherwise, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return if the dock is usable.

Owner's Response: Rea, Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear that you had a problem with the dock. I pay a monthly fee to have the dock monitored and it should have been moved as the lake level changes. I will be sure to post the number on the refrigerator of the company that monitors it. They will come and move it if it is needed. In 11 years of renting, you are my first to have this problem. Thanks again for your stay. Jimmy

Great family space.

  • 3 of 5

Even thought the place really needs a deep cleaning we had a wonderful family time. Nice big kitchen with table to do family games after dinner. It was my first time driving a boat and the dock was easy to maneuver. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I have changed out the ceiling lights in both downstairs rooms with LED globe types. I bought two new four foot LED tube type lights for the laundry room and will be installing in the next couple of weeks. I replaced the bulbs in the bedrooms with 100 watt LED bulbs. Again, that you for letting me know what will make the place better for guests. Jimmy

A little peace of heaven

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this cottage for a long weekend on the 4th and invited another couple with kids to share this experience with us. We absolutely loved it. The kids had a blast. You can not beat the view, location on the lake and the fishing was awesome. We will be back for many years to come! The view of the lake from the living room, porch and fire pit is unbeatable. Love it!!!
