About Lake of the Woods Virginia

Lake of the Woods

 Nestled among the trees equidistant from historic Fredericksburg and Culpeper, VA, lies Lake of the Woods, in Locust Grove, VA. A gated, secured community, Lake of the Woods offers anything and everything you could possibly want. Home to two lakes (the 550 acre main lake and a 35 acre "fishing lake"), a golf course, an equestrian center, a fire and rescue department, and a church all within the gates, Lake of the Woods simply has it all. Whether your passion is boating, water skiing, kayaking, golfing, horseback riding, or simply taking in the breathtaking views from the clubhouse while enjoying a fabulous meal, from your own deck or yard, or from one of the beaches, you won't be disappointed! Perhaps you prefer a game of bridge or volunteering your time and talents...Lake of the Woods offers more than 60 clubs and/or organizations from which you may choose to become involved.

Located in Orange County, we offer the perfect location! We are approximately 50 miles from Richmond, Charlottesville, Washington, DC metro area, and 25 miles from James Madison's Montpelier. We are fortunate to enjoy low real estate taxes and HOA assessments. Coupled with home prices ranging from $100,000 to over $1,000,000, Lake of the Woods is the ideal community for full-time residents, as well as weekenders and part-timers. But don't take my word for it, please come see for yourself! I will gladly give you a tour of Lake of the Woods by boat and by car so that you may experience why I love Lake of the Woods!
