Ivy Lake real estate is regarded as a beautiful, but lesser known, market in Virginia for lake homes and lake lots.
Ivy Lake is in Forest, Virginia, under 25 miles from Lynchburg and under 55 miles from Roanoke.
The Lynchburg Regional Airport, the Centra Virginia Baptist Hospital, and the Centra Lynchburg General Hospital are under 20 miles away.
Groceries and snacks can be bought at several stores and markets within 10 miles. Locals recommend restaurants such as Corner Burgers, Mi Patron, Lori’s, and Trio Brick Oven Eatery.
At 112 acres, Ivy Lake offers privacy and plenty of lake fun to its residents.
Residents can explore the water by boat, kayak, or canoe and dip their toes in on a warm day. Anglers can expect to find smallmouth bass, brown trout, largemouth bass, rainbow trout, channel catfish, striped bass, and fallfish.
A top attraction nearby is the hands-on Amazement Museum. This museum is four floors and is recommended for kids ages 4-9.
Virginia Safari Park also offers family-friendly fun where residents can feed animals such as deer, buffalo, and emu from the comfort of their vehicle.
Blackwater Creek Trail offers great hiking opportunities. This trail features a tunnel that the railroad previously went through.
The nearby city of Lynchburg is home to plenty of wonderful activities for the whole family.
SeaQuest Lynchburg offers visitors the opportunity to get wet with stingrays, feed toucans, encounter caimans, marvel at sharks, take selfies with snakes, and so much more.
The Lynchburg Museum & Visitor Center displays the history of Lynchburg and features four other specialized changing galleries.
If that doesn’t suit your needs, shop at the River Ridge Mall, which offers a fine selection of favorite stores, catch a movie at the state-of-the-art Regal Cinema or explore many of Lynchburg’s specialty shops.
The city also offers diverse restaurants, including Shakers Restaurant, Grey’s, and The Neighbor’s Place.
