My Journey to Lake of the Woods

As a Lake of the Woods resident since 2008 (as a weekender and a full time resident), I’d like to share my journey to the Lake. My husband, John, and I were interested in finding the perfect location for a second/vacation home. Initially, we were open to looking at a beach location, as well as a lake. We began searching in the summer of 2007 through the spring of 2008 for our getaway.
We decided fairly early on that the beach just wasn’t for us because of distance from Northern Virginia and lack of activity during “non-peak season,” we began focusing on the lakes in the area. Having made the trek to Lake Anna and Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia, and Deep Creek Lake in Maryland, something wasn’t “perfect” for us regarding each location. Lake Anna was too busy for us, and Smith Mountain Lake and Deep Creek Lake were both too far for us to enjoy a home regularly, and we also didn’t care for how few conveniences were located close by (ie, grocery store, pharmacy, restaurants, etc).
Then we remembered having visited Lake of the Woods years ago, when we had been a guest of a friend. After our first house-hunting visit to the lake in early spring of 2008, we knew where we wanted to be. Lake of the Woods, as a gated, secured community, gave us peace of mind as weekenders. The community offered us close proximity (1 hr 15 min from Reston),  tons of conveniences, as we residents are supported by a grocery store, pharmacy, gas stations, cleaners, nail salons, automotive services, doctors, a library, a post office, many restaurants, and a brand new elementary school-all within 2 1/2 miles of the gates), over 50 clubs and organizations in which to participate, a fabulous clubhouse overlooking the lake that serves excellent food, and a clear, pristine lake!! Oh…did I mention the PGA golf course and equestrian center within the community?? And the Community Center, and the non-denominational Church within the gates? Or the walking trails? And what about the wildlife!
We purchased our home in June of 2008, and after that first year (52 weekends), we realized that we had been to our home at Lake of the Woods 51 of those 52 weekends! That’s when we decided that the “allure of the lake” was just too great to resist and made the change from weekenders to full-time residents!

How to Get Your Home Ready to Sell in 2023

Key Takeaways:

  • Sell your home faster with these easy repair and design tips
  • Minor improvements can make a big difference
  • Contact us to sell your home for top dollar in 2023

Thinking about selling your home in 2023? Your property’s interior and exterior look and feel have a direct impact on the final sale price of your home. Investing in minor improvements such as paint, flooring, or furniture creates an inviting atmosphere and draws potential buyers. Before you list your home, try these proven tips to help get you every penny your home is worth!

Remove extra clutter in your home

Realtor is giving the keys to a home to clients.

A home free of clutter can help potential buyers see the true beauty in your space. Not only does removing the clutter make viewing easier, but a clean room shows that you take care of your home. Removing items blocking walkways or other essential areas allows buyers to better imagine their furniture and possessions in each room. Decluttering also helps you keep organized as you move out, simplifying the packing process. Don’t let unnecessary objects get in the way of potential buyers seeing how great your space is!

A fresh coat of paint goes a long way 

Neutral living room

Neutral colors make a home appear clean, open, and inviting, so painting the walls in a neutral shade is a must for anyone getting ready to sell their property. Neutral colors help buyers envision the space as their own – allowing them to mentally plan how they’ll use the rooms in their new home. Plain colors can also make furniture and other decorations stand out, so they don’t have to worry about adjusting pieces to match what was already on the walls. Utilizing neutral colors will give potential buyers an idea of how a room would look if decorated with their own style and personality.

Entice homebuyers as soon as they arrive

Beautiful, Newly Built Luxury Home Exterior

Increasing your home’s curb appeal is an easy and satisfying way to give your living space a fresh look. By tidying up the yard and enhancing the house’s exterior, you can create an inviting atmosphere that potential buyers will love coming home to. Taking care of the lawn can be as simple as mowing regularly or adding potted plants and foliage that match your decor style. Paying extra attention to specific details, like painting the front door, can help your property stand out nicely. An easy and inexpensive option to add instant curb appeal is to have your house power-washed. With just a little effort, you can craft a stunning outdoor environment that will draw admirers far and wide.

Health Benefits of Waterfront Living in Virginia

Living near water is something many people around the US dream of. Speaking of dreams and future objectives, living in one of the most beautiful US states – Virginia – is a thought many people go to bed with. Today, we’ve decided to put the two fantasies together. In other words, we’ll introduce you to all the health benefits of waterfront living in Virginia. Not only does it sound incredible, but it also comes with many health advantages. Therefore, stay tuned for some helpful info and tips!

#1 Waterfront living enhances the quality of your sleep

Needless to say, a good night’s sleep is a crucial element of your well-being. Research study results have proved that people who live near water enjoy a more restful sleep. Also, the same studies have shown that the same group faces less stress daily. Your body needs to rest, and there isn’t a better place to recover from a long working day than nested inside a peaceful environment. Get rid of stress, and maximize your joy. Most of the time, waterfront living in Virginia is synonymous with the lack of noise pollution we’re pretty used to enduring in the cities. You won’t have trouble falling asleep once you move to some of the state’s jaw-droppingly-attractive waterfront neighborhoods.

Living near water enhances the quality of sleep.

#2 Waterfront living enables you to enjoy water-related activities anytime you want

Being right there, near a larger body of water, will enable you to enjoy all your favorite water-related activities. And, if you own a boat, even better! Living close to the water will probably mean you have your own dock, too. As a boat owner, you’ll always want to opt for a property that offers this advantage. You don’t want to worry about driving to the spot where you’ve pared your boat or finding the ideal storage place. Also, docks aren’t only functional as parking spaces. You can use your dock as a diving board, a fishing spot, or simply a place where you sit down, crack open a cold beverage and enjoy the scenery. Who knows, you might even come up with a philosophical school of your own while water-gazing.

#3 Living near water is healthy even if you’re a city dweller

We’re pretty sure you understand this article doesn’t only cover non-urban waterfront properties. Virginia’s got some fantastic cities located near or directly placed upon a solid body of water. Just take Richmond or Alexandria as examples. A German research study has found that living near water is excellent for urban dwellers, too. We’re talking ponds, pools, and even – water fountains! Therefore, buying a waterfront property in Virginia will help you overcome some of the disadvantages city life offers to its “practitioners”. As mentioned above, you’ll enjoy less stress and better sleeping conditions. Lastly, if you’re a recovering addict, living near water will help ease the process, as professionals at Harmony Ridge Recovery Center point out.

#4 Enjoy better air quality with waterfront living in Virginia

Air quality tends to be better near water. Also, some people are more prone to sit, relax and unwind a little near water. In other words, they tend to breathe deeper and smoother. So air quality is crucial in such moments. Not to mention all the vegetation and plants usually found near water. Those are your natural air filters. You won’t need to buy expensive air cleaners for your waterfront property in Virginia.

#5 Fewer nosy neighbors (for non-urban waterfront dwellers)

One can’t say this is a direct health benefit, but you’ll agree it has something to do with how we perceive our surroundings, thus affecting our everyday well-being. For example, let’s say you’ve bought yourself a scenic Virginia lake home. You might notice that the next home is not so close. In other words, you’ll soon find out that you will have to deal with fewer nosy neighbors. 

Lake homes tend to be further apart, thus allowing their owners more privacy than they’d enjoy in a more traditional suburban neighborhood. A lake home will help you deal with all the troubles city life plagues us with. This much-needed intimacy can be a savior for all those struggling with something or trying to get back on their feet. For example, this serenity is perfect for recovering addicts who want to get long-term help. There are many long-term addiction treatments in West Virginia, but recovery doesn’t stop there. A little bit of peace and quiet that your waterfront property can bring will work wonders for mental health. 

#6 Let’s consider the sound of water

We’ve implied this in the previous paragraphs, but it’s nevertheless crucial that we emphasize the calming properties of the sound of water. Did you know that the sound of running water, rushing and trickling, or waves smoothly hitting the shoreline possess fantastic calming and emotionally healing properties? Once you add that sound to the waterfront breeze, you get a match made in heaven, as they say. There isn’t a more comprehensive calm, as many people that own a waterfront property like to point out.

#7 Living near water will inspire you to enjoy other fun (outdoor) activities

Of course, it’s not like simply sitting down in a cool shade with a good book by a body of water isn’t enough. However, enjoying a waterfront property in Virginia will allow you to immerse yourself in other fun activities. We’re talking about all the great outdoor efforts one can partake in: hiking, camping, wildlife watching, etc. Nature is a remedy, don’t trust anyone who tells you the opposite. 

Closing thoughts on the subject

These were some of the many health benefits of waterfront living in Virginia. Now you’ve seen all the advantages of buying a (vacation) waterfront property in one of the most scenic US states. If you were hesitant before, we’re pretty sure you don’t have any doubts about whether such a decision is a good one!

Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Home’s Exterior

The exterior of your home is one of the first things that potential buyers, visitors, and other passersbys will notice—so if it’s starting to look drab or outdated, it’s important to take steps to improve curb appeal. Here are a few easy ways to upgrade your home’s exterior:

  • If you have red brick, paint it gray or white. While red brick was a standard material to use on the exterior of homes and other buildings for many years, it is no longer as popular and can give a home a dated appearance. Fortunately, there’s a relatively easy solution: painting the brick white or gray can create a brighter, cleaner, more modern look.
  • Swap out front doors that contain decorative glass. While front doors with frosted or decorative textured glass offer a great way to let natural light into the home while still providing some privacy, most of these styles are no longer in vogue. Upgrading your door to one with clear glass panels or simple solid wood (or an alternative material like fiberglass) can instantly create a more up-to-date aesthetic.
  • Use contrasting colors. Choosing paint colors that have a stark contrast for your home’s exterior, as well as the front door and window shutters, can help create dimension and visual intrigue.
  • Add some lighting. The right lighting can be a powerful way to add style and accentuate your home’s best features, even during the daytime. For instance, consider adding some pathway lighting to ensure that the approach to your front door looks inviting, uplighting or down-lighting to draw attention to certain features, or an eye-catching hanging light over your front door.

Linguine with Shrimp and Garlic Cream Sauce Recipe

Ingredients

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 ounces fresh linguine
  • 12 large shrimp, peeled
  • 8 cloves garlic, unpeeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for serving
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley, plus more for serving

Directions

Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, add the pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender and al dente, 1 to 3 minutes (or according to package directions). Drain well and set aside.
Meanwhile, bring 6 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan.

Using a small paring knife, remove the vein along the back of each shrimp and rinse under running water. Add the garlic to the boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Add the shrimp to the water with the garlic and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain the shrimp and garlic. Peel and finely chop the garlic.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cream begins to thicken. Stir in the Parmesan, parsley and shrimp. Season with salt and pepper.

Pour the sauce over the linguine in a large bowl and toss to coat. Garnish with more Parmesan and parsley.
