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, equestrian center, community center, fire and rescue department, co-op preschool, and a multi-denominational Church all within the gates, Lake of the Woods simply has it all. Whether your passion is boating, waterskiing, 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.
As you peruse the fabulous communtiy, the eclectic mix of home styles and sizes is readily apparent. You can actually see the decades of development-from the tiny 800+ square feet cabins from the 60s and 70s to the 7-8000 square feet homes of the 2000s. While there are many sections of the community, there aren't "old" sections and "new sections." There is old and new everywhere! To me, this is one of the many attributes that makes Lake of the Woods so desirable; Lake of the Woods is no "cookie cutter" development!
