Why The Owner chose Bumpass

Please know this . . .

All reviews are 100% real and written by our guests . . not like some who write themselves a couple of good reviews and fool you.

We have over 50 ACCURATE reviews.

We built our house with entertaining and our own family reunions in mind. Designing the decks with shelter from the sun and rain allows your family to enjoy outside deck activity no matter what the weather.

We built a seawall around to protect the property fro storms. Then added a Gazebo, docks, and boat ramp to maximize a second to none waterfront view.

We are located at the South end of Lake Anna where there's less boat traffic, deeper, cleaner water, fantastic views and terrific sunsets.

It is a very peaceful property but still allows families to take full advantage of all water activities. For protected swimming we built a sheltered harbor so we could swim without worries of boats passing by too close. This property is truly a piece of Heaven on Earth.

What makes this house unique

There's so much to do on our property that it's hard to describe it all.

So many places to sit and relax, so many areas to have fun.

Did we mention our deck on the roof to star gaze with an unobstructed view?

You can bring one or several boats, sailboats, personal watercraft , pontoon boat or rent one from a local marina.

One comment we often hear is that parents can spend quality time with their children here. So much to do together without the distraction of boardwalks etc as in Ocean Beach Rentals. Here you get to enjoy all the boating, swimming, jumping off the Gazebo, use the kayaks, canoe, playing games both inside and out, rest in a hammock under a tree. Watch the shooting stars from our roof deck. We can play board games with your kids or grandkids. And then there is the fishing off the docks. You can all be together or have your space in one of the many sitting areas like the Koi Pond. Sit and listen to the waterfall, watch the fish and relax.

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Extremely family oriented......something for everyone, young and old. Beautiful lake for swimming, boating or just sitting on the deck watching the sunrise over the water. Definitely would recommend Emery Point for your vacation get a way. Enjoyed the week so much we are going back!

We Found "Emmy"

  • 5 of 5

In August, we held out annual family reunion at Emery Point. For a week, we felt like we had our own private island. Lazy days were spent playing in Lake Anna and taking in the panoramic view from the one of the sun decks. The slide and "Tarzan Swing" off the dock were a big hit with the younger generation. Big cookouts at dinnertime were followed by a sunset countdown and late night star-gazing from the roof deck.

The owner, Jim Emery went beyond the call of duty in more ways than one. For example, my 11 year old daughter fell in love with a stray kitten that wandered onto the property. We named her "Emmy" and I foolishly promised to adopt the cat. On the morning we left, Emmy was nowhere to be found and we had to leave without her. My daughter cried all the way home. In an act of desperation, I contacted Jim Emery, told him the story and asked if he knew anything about this cat. His response was to offer to try to trap Emmy himself when he returned in September. He also asked the new tenants to feed her in the interim and even offered to transport Emmy back to our house. How's that for hospitality? After countless text messages and several attempts, we retrieved Emmy who is now my daughter's best friend and a member of our family.

Even if you don't find an addition to your family, your stay at Emery Point will be memorable. The place really does look like the picture and there's no way you can't have fun.

Owner's Response: Over the years we've had hundreds of unique stories and events but having a small part of the "Emmy" reunion is one of the best. Seeing the reunion of Emmy the kitten and your daughter was priceless. After a month or longer and your multiple trips down from the North East the Stars finally aligned. It was just meant to be. I believe Emmy won the lottery that day and is a very lucky to be in such a loving home. Go Emmy!

Emery point. Fantastic vacation get away!!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Emery Point twice a year for the past three years, once in Spring and again in the Fall. Our family is so grateful for this time together. It's now a tradition and each member agrees this is the right place for us. Previously we went to the Ocean but this privacy and so many things to do just outweighs the glitz of a boardwalk.

Campfires, sunsets, jumping off the harbor gazebo are among our favorite activities there.

We would not consider going anywhere else. Our family is growing and this property offers plenty of space for our growth. The Emery's are always accommodating so we rate them and the property a FIVE. Thank you.

Team McDonald

  • 4 of 5

A few years ago, the McDonald family decided to initiate a yearly family vacation. Our first location was North Myrtle Beach. It was great time. Being the matriarch of the group, I thought it would be fun to explore different settings; to experience something for everyone. We have stayed in the mountains Pennsylvania and Lake Norris in Tennessee prior to landing at Emery Point in Virginia. It is not easy to find accommodations for our tribe. Our ages for 2017 ranged from 75 years young to 2 years old. We require many bedrooms and bathrooms and a kitchen and dining area large enough for family meals. After spending 2017 at Emery Point, we came to a group conclusion that we needed to look no further for the perfect McDonald vacation spot! Emery Point has everything to meet our needs, and that is not easy!

Emery Point has so much to entertain the family that we couldn’t get it all done during our week’s stay. The enclosed swim area was awesome for the little ones and those less adventurous. We had our own boat, water skis, tubes, and water boards; we rented kayaks. The kids spent hours on the water, many had their first ski lesson.

The family member who requires wheelchair access and loves to fish was thrilled with the opportunities that Emery Point offered her. If you just wanted a little quiet time, there were plenty of spaces to retreat. The large porches, pavilion, gazebo, playground, decks and grounds were all utilized; with our large group, you sometimes need your space!

If you have groceries, you never need to leave. Of course, we did find some great restaurants nearby. We did venture out to Lake Anna State Park to pan for gold, and there was some golfers in the group that visited some of the excellent golf courses. There are many places to explore within a short drive, but most chose to stay on our little paradise peninsula.

I won’t say it was perfect, but close. Mr. Emery has been keeping us up to date on the improvements being made, and we are looking forward to our 2018 vacation at Emery Point.
