This was our third year vacationing at Smith Mountain Lake...and our second year enjoying a home in Village East! We fell in love with the community amenities last year, knew we wanted to return this year, but needed a larger home to accommodate our family. This house turned out to be the perfect size with an ideal layout to afford each part of the family comfortable sleeping areas and well outfitted gathering spaces.
We enjoyed fishing and playing in the water of the quiet cove. The paddle boards were a huge hit! With easy access to the main lake, we were delighted to rent a pontoon and spend a day on the larger waters.
We went to the community pool nearly every day and twice on some days! Walks through the neighborhood were wonderful with friendly neighbors sharing greetings and lots of wildlife abounding (deer, fox, chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits, lizards).
The kitchen is nicely outfitted, with a welcome collection of spices, paper products and utensils to use. I love the policy of leave behind what you like to share!
This house quickly felt like home away from home! The owner was particularly responsive in every regard---I appreciated his clear housekeeping expectations and practical/simple checkout procedures!
If you are looking for a family friendly home from which to enjoy the lake, this one could be a great fit for you too! Be prepared for the stairway to the dock (see photos), it is steep but well constructed with "rest area landings" in between flights! A good workout after those awesome vacation meals!!
