SML is one of the best if not the best lake on the east coast - from excellent fishing to boating, kayaking, or just enjoying the wonderful views you can not beat SML! My family and I have stayed in many spots on the lake but the Penthouse Condo beats them all. The location on the lake it ideal - the boat access is excellent, water depth and clarity is perfect, pool area is very large and well kept, pool house grilling area was a nice addition.
Not that you need it but, should you want to spend some time at a nice park if you have small children the nearby SML Community Park is terrific (this park is NOT the SML State Park) with kids playground area, beach with sand, fishing dock, walking trails, etc.
The condo itself is extremely clean with everything you would need for your stay - we ate in several times and were well pleased with the amenities.
Our son brought a friend - making us have 4 in the condo (2 adults and 2 high school kids) - I would say 2 or 3 you can't beat it!!! 4 works and we had no problems but keep in mind this is a 1 bedroom condo with a pullout bed. Comfortable sleeping arrangements just expect nighttime to get a bit crowded with 4.
Final thoughts - you have it all at the Penthouse - a neat, well maintained condo in the perfect location on the lake for a variety of activities - a short drive to Westlake for meals or shopping - and a wonderful lake view from the top floor of the complex. The only complaint I have it I didn't find the Penthouse a few years ago! Enjoy.
