Gorgeous waterfront Log Cabin On the Private Side Of Lake Anna. Linens Incl.
About Kathy Spencer
Several years ago we moved from Colorado to Northern VA. We raise Quarter Horses and Shires but in our spare time, we enjoy water sports, fishing and swimming. Lake Anna is the perfect place for it. We hope you will feel the same way after spending your vacation here.
Kathy Spencer purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Kathy Spencer chose Bumpass
Three years ago we started looking for just the right lake home to purchase. Our poor realtor had to show us everything available on the lake until we found this stunning log home situated on the perfect property for us. It was not an easy task to find the right home for us as we really wanted so many things! I wanted a swim area to teach my grandchildren to swim. It needed to have a gentle slope and sandy bottom. I needed a dock/boat house that was deep water for ease in getting our boats in and out of it. It was important to me to have a view of the lake from the house so that I could watch the family waterski, boat, and tube and take wonderful photos from the comfort of my beautiful home. A 5 bedroom home was desirable and we wanted to make sure that there were plenty of bathrooms to limit sharing so this 5 bedroom/5 bathroom log beauty was just the right fit. Both Rustic and Refined makes this the most comfortable home on the lake!
What makes this Cabin unique
Both Rustic and Refined describes our beautiful log home. The wall of windows in the great room allow anyone who hasn't gone out in the boat to have a panoramic scenic view of the lake and family enjoying it. The sunset is lovely from this location. Our home has all the necessary amenities to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. It is warm, inviting, solid and certainly more sustainable than conventional housing on the lake. If it could talk, each log would have a story to tell and it would be delighted to welcome you in.

Great visit to Lake Anna
We had a wonderful time! The house was perfect and our girls had a blast paddle boarding and kayaking! They are ready to come back!!!
Heron Cove was a perfect spot for having our small family reunion. Everyone kept saying how beautiful the place was and how well it was supplied with everything we could imagine to make our stay more enjoyable. We can’t wait to do it all again. Our special thanks to Kathy
We truly enjoyed having your group stay at Heron's Cove. The house was kept fantastic. We do hope you will come again and enjoy the Lake again soon.
Wonderful Lakeside Cabin
The entire trip was wonderful. The cabin was near enough to grocery store and restaurants to keep the trip relaxed and enjoyable, but far enough out that we had no trouble enjoying the Virginia countryside in peace. The private dock, along with the provided kayaks and paddleboards provided a great Saturday afternoon, and the well equipped kitchen helped us enjoy the parts of the weekend that were a bit rainier.
Plenty of bedrooms, so no one felt crowded, and plenty of bathrooms so no waiting for a hot shower.
Can't recommend enough!
We are so trilled that you enjoyed your stay at Heron's Cove. We truly hope your will come back and stay again. Consider this your vacation home. I'm so glad that even in the winter, you were able to take the kayaks and paddle boards out on the lake to enjoy it. That is certainly one of the beautiful things about being on the warm side of the lake. It never freezes so you can truly enjoy it year round. I hope you were able to see some of our beautiful wildlife while you were there. Heron's Cove got it name because there are so many magnificent Blue Heron's that feed right in the cove near the cabin! Please come back again and let us know if there is anything else that we can provide to make your trip even better next time!
Birthday Gals Christmas Celebration January 17-19, 2020
We (8 retired educators and one medical employee) each year celebrate one another’s birthdays and Christmas in January together. Actually there are ten of us but one living in North Carolina had to cancel due to health issues and we really missed her. One came back from snowy Wisconsin. Home was perfect size and furnished nicely. Kathy was great in communications with us. Only issue was heat in master bedroom on main floor. We were unable to start the space heater nor remote and were not aware of operation of floor heat in bathroom our first night so uncomfortable for the two of us staying in that room. We contacted Kathy Saturday morning and her husband assisted us in resolving the issue. Thanks so much for answering all of our questions prior to our arrival. Certainly understand you making the decision to purchase the home for your family’s enjoyment. Prior to this year my family enjoyed our lovely waterfront lake home in Bumpass and our birthday gal group celebrated Christmas in January there. We did not want to break the tradition after selling it. To say the least, I was very happy to select the home on VRBO and Kathy’s was my choice. Shirley Wilson
Hello and thank you for the wonderful review. We do try to keep Heron's Cove enjoyable for all and I'm so happy that you had a lovely time. I am truly sorry about you spending that first night without the heater on. I wish you had called us that first evening so we could help you get it turned on and set up for your comfort. I understand how much a good nights sleep is important and we try to ensure that our guests are comfortable. I'm glad we were able to walk you through the process of using the thermostat in the master suite. I know some people have never used the specific type that is in there. There is an instruction booklet in that room if it has not been taken out but again, we are only a phone call away and we always try to take calls immediately so that we can work through any issues our guests might have. We hope you will come to think of Heron's Cove as your Vacation Home Away from Home and come back often. Now that you know how to use the master bedroom system, you won't have even one bad night!!! :) You might want to return one day in the spring or fall. I always find that is my favorite time at the lake. The water is perfect and beauty is all around. Thank you again for spending your vacation at Heron's Cove. We can't wait to see you again!
Great experience for NYE on Lake Anna!
Great experience all around. Leading-up to our stay, the property manager was very responsive. Listing and pictures are completely accurate about the space—very clean, individual bathrooms, and plenty of space. Very pleased and great experience with 10 adults and 2 infants.
Hello Melissa. We are sure glad that you enjoyed Heron's Cove even through the winter months. I always feel like it is beautiful there anytime of the year. The winter can be amazing because it is quieter and you get the chance to enjoy more wildlife. The cabin is so well planned to give mulitiple families their own space. That is something we loved and one of the reasons that we purchased it when we found this gem of a property. Please come back again and enjoy more. There is always something new to see and do at the Lake. "In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer." "Albert Camus"
