There is a place in the quiet countryside of Va.
A place on route 522 –
South of Berkley Springs –
North of Winchester Va.
Lake Holiday –
Our daughter and family have called this home for thirteen years !
We actually had a house built there
but sold it –
as it would of been too far to drive !
The lake itself is not huge – around 227 acres –
But it does have three beaches –
with WHITE SAND !
Most boats you see are Pontoon boats –
But power boats are also there.
There is a very large clubhouse and also a Marina –
Where there is a waiting list for slips.
There are several sand volleyball courts on the two main beaches –
The third beach is somewhat secluded
and used mostly to set off fireworks – fishing –
or a destination spot for boats to anchor and swimming.
Beach one is the main expanse of beach –
All events are held there and at the clubhouse-
which has a huge outside deck wrapping around it.
It covers underneath it for events in case of rain
and the boat marina is right there also.
There are hundreds of houses situated all around the lake
And at one time had a 18 hole golf course
where a host of homes still exist on the open fairways.
Almost all the streets are named in connection with the course.
Beach Two contains camp grounds – play ground – volleyball court.
And is much more quiet and a place to dock up to three boats
On a floating dock system.
A no wake zone for all the beaches and coves exists
And the entire lake is protected by a security force.
There is a guard shack with gate lifts that you must stop and be checked out
You have to provide ID and must be called in by a owner
in order to be admitted
The entire area is monitored 24 / 7 365 days a year.
All in all – it is a very nice quiet community –
when lakefront homes do come up for sale
They generally go very fast.
There still are homes being built although most are off the lake.
Beach three side is mostly undeveloped –
Mainly because no infrastructure exits on that side of the lake.
Although you can purchase lots –
people then build decks – docks and use it to dock their boats.
This is a four season area in the Shenandoah Mountains
Although most Winters it does not freeze entirely.
This is a little bit about a quiet place
A place we have been visiting for thirteen years
Where our three oldest grand daughters live
