Celebrating 60 Years

The community of Orchid Lake is located in southeastern Louisa County, approximately 25 miles from Short Pump. At one time the lake was a summer retreat for Richmond families, but over the years has transitioned into a year-round community for its residents.

Orchid Lake is a tranquil wooded oasis and is comprised of single family dwellings. There is a beautiful lake with beaches, a pier for fishing and pavilion for use by lot owners. Guests of residents/lot owners are permitted to use the facilities if they have the resident/lot owner’s permission and carry an up-to-date membership card. 

To enjoy the beauty of Orchid Lake through the seasons, visit Life at the Lake.  

For residents of the lake, Community News and Information provides important information for residents/lot owners and a calendar of community meetings and upcoming events. From the Board contains messages from the OLE Board of Directors and a monthly letter from the President. You can also find opportunities to support our community under Get Involved.

If you are interested in helping preserve the tranquility of the lake and its wildlife, visit Lots for Sale for information on single lots for sale by owner. 

And finally, use Contact for questions, concerns or feedback.
