Lake of the Woods (LOW), a gated community in Locust Grove, VA is located in the northeastern portion of historic Orange County, VA approximately midway between the town of Culpeper and city of Fredericksburg on route 3. Just a fifteen minute drive, off of route 95, exit 130, Lake of the Woods was developed in the late 1960’s.

This eclectic community in Locust Grove, VA has since that time evolved into a special community shared by permanent residents; those who use their property as a weekend get-away; and others who stay for the summer or winter seasons.

The Lake of the Woods community in Virginia consists of over 4,000 lots with over 800 lakefront properties and homes on either the main lake or the smaller Keaton Lake, also known as the fishing lake. The main lake is a spring-fed 550 acre body that offers some of the clearest lake water in Virginia, along with some of the best fishing for large-mouth bass in the region.

A variety of water sports take place on the main lake, including all types of water-skiing and wakeboarding, tubing, sailing, rowing, kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding, or many prefer cruising the lake on their jet ski, pontoon boat or powerboat and just enjoying the beauty of the lake. This gem of a community, where everyone waves and talks to their neighbors, is located just a 75 minute drive from most Washington DC locations.

The pace is a little slower, the people a little friendlier, and life is a little better here at Lake of the Woods VA. Take a minute to visit, and “you’ll want to make this place your home”!

  Our Journey to Lake of the Woods, Virginia Lake of the woods homes for sale

The Ostlund family roots at Lake of the Woods, Virginia dates back to 1970, when Ozzie and Margaret Ostlund first purchased a lot, just when the Boise Cascade company began development of the community. Initially an investment, the lot was sold and the Ostlund’s first home was a small weekender cabin on Meadowview Rd. This home provided the backdrop for the many memories the Ostlund family would make on weekend visits and longer extended summer outings with their many friends, family members and people they came to know at Lake of the Woods. When Oz and Margaret decided to make Lake of the Woods their fulltime home they moved to a lakefront property on Madison Circle, a place where their grandchildren would come to enjoy the many activities available at this wonderful community.    Penny and Charlie purchased their home on Harrison Circle in 1998 and used the home as a weekend escape from the stressful environment of Northern Virginia. After retiring from Fairfax County Public Schools and ERA Teachers Real Estate, Charlie and Penny constructed their new home. Shortly after moving permanently to Lake of the Woods in 2004, their oldest son Chad and his wife and daughter Maya moved to the lake, making four generations of the Ostlund family enjoying the Lake of the Woods lifestyle.
