Kayaking, canoeing, and paddle boarding are all activities that could be easily enjoyed in Pigeon Cove. Get away from it all at The Escape Hatch!

Review: We were a boisterous group of 12 looking to getaway for the weekend. This rental turned out to be the highlight of our trip. Well equipped with beautiful views. Spacious and has lake access. Super great place to stay for large groups at Lake Anna. The management (Sunset Properties) were also extremely responsive and professional.

Review: We rented the Escape Hatch for the last week of June 2016, and it was perfect for our family reunion. The 6 bedrooms and 4 baths were great for our group of 15. The open floor plan of the main level made meals and gatherings easy, and we made full use of the deck furniture and screen porch. The air hockey table and fire-pit were used quite a bit. The linens were perfect, and they had plenty of towels available. The best part was the roomy dock, and the lake temperature was perfect for swimming and floating together. It was so helpful to have the second fridge/kitchen area on the lower floor, and the fridge at the dock. The owner, Mary, and the Sunset Realty people were responsive and very wonderful to work with!!I would highly recommend renting this beautiful home for your vacation!!

Review: What a great house! It was perfect for my wife and I, our two kids, their spouses and our 4 grand kids. We all had a wonderful time. The dock was a hit and we spent hours swimming and fishing and watching the sunsets. We also loved the large dining table. It was not only a perfect eating spot for all of us (10) but a perfect place to play all of our games. The house was very well stocked with all of the necessities and was large enough for everyone to carve out a little space for themselves, if need be. Renting a pontoon boat for a couple of days was also a hit! Depending on work schedules for next summer, we definitely want to try to and come back to “The Escape Hatch”. Thanks!

Review: We had a wonderful time here with 2 great grandparents; 4 grandparents; 4 kids & 4 spouses; and 5 little ones, 3yrs old and under! What a perfect house/layout for our family. The weather was great…only 1 brief storm and the rest beautiful, sunny days. We spent every morning and evening on the dock and lake. We did color days with the little kids with the 6 days being a color of the rainbow. Each day we wore that color, read books about the color, did crafts in that color, and had snacks in that color! :) We would definitely love to come back here again! Lancaster, PA

Review: We had a wonderful time at The Escape Hatch! We did a lot of kayaking and swimming. Saw a couple of hummingbirds, bald eagles, green herons, great blue herons and osprey. Went on the gold mine tour with the Lake Anna State Park rangers. It was really interesting! Played lots of games, Banagrams got competitive! Kids had a dance party in the basement, so much fun! Cooked good food and relaxed on the deck. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. It is very nice and comfortable. Glenside, PA

Review: What a perfect house, the layout was just incredible. Our family is all over the map, so to have a place that fits all of us is such a blessing. We had lots of fun bot outside and in. Footballs games, nerf wars, we even jumped into the lake....that was COLD. Our Thanksgiving meal went off without a hitch, having two stoves and fridges was perfect for this family who loves to cook. We took long walks among the beautiful leaves and many trips on the boat. Thank you so very much!

Review: Our blended family of 28 years came together from 5 different directions. Grandparents, 5 grown children with 2 spouses and 6 grandchildren – 12 down to 5 years. We enjoyed the lake with our boat and tubing. We had s’mores at the fire pit. We did crafts with the kids on the covered porch on a rainy day. We had a scavenger hunt and did other fun games and activities. The house with six bedrooms is the PERFECT fit for us, especially with the game room and rooms downstairs for those who like to stay up later. NO complaints. We had a great time!

We had several different couples and all had such a wonderful New Year’s here! The lake was a beautiful setting, we had a campfire and frolicked all over the grounds! We will definitely come back – in the summer! Thanks so much for letting us stay!

Review: We rented the Escape Hatch for a family wedding in Charlottesville. Since we were all traveling from Alaska we wanted a place where we could enjoy family time, relax, fix our own meals, and invite some local friends. The house provided all of that and more! The gathering areas were spacious and comfortable. The lower level family room gave "night owls" a place to play games. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well furnished. We enjoyed sunsets and an evening of fellowship around the campfire. We are so glad we found your home - it was everything we hoped for and more!! We would highly recommend it to others and if the occasion arises, we'll be back.

Review: New Life Christian Fellowship's (Chantilly, VA) MOPs Chapter celebrated our leadership retreat with 14 stay-at-home moms. We enjoyed the beautiful setting, the spacious house, and the good company. We spent afternoons on the dock, evenings by the fire pit, and nights on the comfy couches watching old movies. We hope to return next year to escape hatch for another retreat. Thanks for the great memories, a time to relax away from the kids and a chance to fellowship with fellow Christians.

Review: We rented this property with some great friends and their families and loved it. This place has perfect space for three families of four to all get something that they need and spread out for sleeping on opposite sides of the house. Whether we were all swimming and kayaking at the dock, having a campfire, sitting/grilling on the deck, or eating at the huge table during meals, it all just worked out really nicely. Unlike other rentals, the furniture was incredibly comfortable for relaxing and the kitchen had everything, including great appliances. Despite being told to bring some things, previous guests all paid it forward by leaving supplies (soap, garbage bags, paper towels, toilet paper, clean products). All the bedrooms had great views and as I am typing, a huge part of me is wishing I wasn't saying all these great things b/c I don't want to learn that it's sold out next year when we want to return.

Review: We had a fantastic time at the Escape Hatch. The house is very comfortable and accommodating. 2 things should be noted. If you are bringing 2 boats, the dock will accommodate them but it is not ideal. The East side of the dock can not be accessed w/o getting in the water. This is actually the best place to tie up a boat, but the doors to that part of the dock are locked and keys were not provided. The only other option is to tie the boats together or cut off access to the ladder. Secondly, the TVs in the bedrooms only function with the DVD players. This was only a problem for one in our group as she sleeps with the TV on in the background. All in all, I would definitely stay there again, just not if I\'m bringing the second boat.

Have you stayed at this property before? Review it!
