About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Expansive Waterfront Home With Private Boat Ramp

Plan your getaway today! The MoonDream House is on the warm side of Lake Anna, which doesn't freeze, so bring your outboard motor boat and fish any time or just hang out in a family friendly, peaceful location. Make lifetime memories with family and friends at the spacious, 3 bedroom/2 bath MoonDream house on the private side of Lake Anna! Take in the expansive view of the lake and skyline frequented by soaring eagles, graceful herons and geese. Early risers are often greeted by a mystical sunrise over the water, and those who prefer to sleep in can wait for the breathtaking moonrise with its glimmering trail across the lake.

The warm water of the private side is normally enjoyable between April and October. Fishermen suffering from cabin fever during the winter can find relief here year round, since the water never freezes! Our home has an on-site boat ramp so you can launch your small boat without leaving the property, or larger boats may be launched at the private community launch about a block from my home. Bring your family, friends, and lake toys, and come vacation with us!!

Our home is well equipped for your vacation getaway- suitable for small groups, holiday gatherings, family vacations, with something for everyone. First (main) floor bedrooms and full bath with tub make this home accessible to most. The first floor has windows galore for awesome views of the lake and outside festivities. Compact kitchen has 4-burner electric stove, toaster oven, microwave, keurig coffee maker, standard coffee maker, full sized refrigerator. Though the kitchen does not have an oven, we have installed an oven/range and second refrigerator and workspace downstairs in the enclosed garage for those who may want to cook a full dinner. Dining area/family room is set up for your comfort, with a flat screen TV (DirectTV basic). The deck accessed by sliding doors is equipped with a propane grill and table and chairs for easy outside dining. Two bedrooms have queen beds; one with a 32" TV with DirectTV, third bedroom has a bunk bed with full bottom, twin top (for a child under 85 pounds) with a small TV that plays VHS tapes. A baby gate at the top of the stairs to the lower level is a safeguard for your young children or pet.

Downstairs has a large family/fun room with a comfy sofas, flat screen TV (DirectTV), air hockey table, game room with donkey kong, x-box 360, nintendo 64, game. A foosball table is in the garage. The second bathroom on this level includes a shower, and a full sized washer and dryer.

Outside deck on two sides of the house has propane grill, outside dining table and chairs. Lower level outside is a second propane grill, two picnic tables with umbrellas, porch swing in the shade of the deck for relaxation.

Horseshoe pits, 4 stand-up paddle boards (2 Adult, 2 Junior), 2 kayaks and a flat-bottom row boat are available for use during your stay. The kayaks are available on a trailer/or stand down by the waterfront. There is a walk-in area beside the dock for easy access for swimming.

PLEASE NOTE: Your quote contains a service fee which is mandated by VRBO for each reservation. VRBO has informed me that this fee was established to enable them to protect vacationers against fraudulent listings. Unfortunately, this is a sad sign of the state of our world. This fee is collected separately when you reserve dates. You will be directed to provide a credit card to VRBO for collection of this fee, which goes directly to them, not to owners. The actual reservation and refundable damage deposit may be paid securely through electronic payment via e-check (unless start date is within 10 days) or credit card. Payment by e-check does not incur any transaction fees. Payments by credit card incur 2.9% transaction fees for each transaction, including the refund transaction.

Why Shelia Fitzgerald chose Aspen Hill

This 3 bedroom home has lots of space for relaxing and enjoying your vacation with family/friends. The view is awesome, and the name of the property "MoonDream" refers to the intoxicating view of the moon over the lake. You will enjoy this peaceful setting in an established neighborhood. Herons frequently fish from our dock, and are a sight to behold! This home became a new rental in Fall 2015, but has been a long-loved lake home with many special memories of time spent with our family.

What makes this house unique

The private boat ramp on this property is available for launching smaller boats when the ground is dry, or you may choose to launch your boat at the community boat launch located about a block from the house. A pass for the community launch is made available to you upon check in. The neighboring boat dock and boat house inhibits the space for launching larger boats. If you have any concern about the space for launching, please use the community launch.

Great house!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We spent five days and we did not have to worry about a thing because the house has everything and anything you may need.

Kids friendly, lots of toys, games, books, kajaks, a boat, sand toys. You name it.

We definitely recommend this house for a long weekend or a long vacation.

We will be renting it for the summer!!!

Comfortable with good fishing off the dock

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and caught some nice large catfish and bass. One of the beds was as hard as a rock while the other queen size bed was heaven. Kitchen was very small but we knew that in advance. It was a comfortable home, very clean and quiet. My only complaint is that with a 4 pm check in on Wednesday and a 10 am check out on Friday, we felt we didn’t really have the time we wanted for the higher rental fee we paid.

Well equipped with an awesome setting

  • 5 of 5

This place definitely did not disappoint. It has everything you need to entertain children and adults day and night for a great vacation. We lost count of how many cat fish we caught and threw back into the lake from the dock and the johnboat.

Moondream House Has Earned It's Name!

  • 5 of 5

I went for a long weekend to Moondream house early October, 2017, with 4 other ladies to celebrate a 50th birthday for one of our friends. The house was wonderful, very clean, neat and comfortable. The view was amazing, especially since we were there during a full moon, breathtaking view over the water. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us. We had an absolutely wonderful time!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to review the property, and I am so glad you were able to experience the full moon over the lake during your stay.
