We stayed at this property after a careful process of elimination. I like to take my children to a different state every year and this has by far been my favorite. Its always difficult picking a place to stay when all you have to go by are reviews from strangers but I am certainly glad all the reviews on this property and of SML were extremely accurate. The property was simply amazing. We had wildlife on our property pretty much at all times of the day. The screen porch was the main area for the adults. The kids loved the big tv in the great room and the older ones loved the basement. The jacuzzi was one of the best I've ever been in. We rented a pontoon for a few days from Bridgewater Marina and the people were some of the friendliest Ive ever encountered. The Food Lion and civilization being very close by was a good thing because with a bunch of hungry/bored teens we ran out of food quick! We ALL loved feeding the giant carp down at Bridgewater marina. We ate at Moosies and Mangos and the food and atmosphere were top notch. We ventured out to the Booker T Washington park and if youre a history buff like myself its worth the 15 mile drive. We didnt do much as far as sightseeing or venturing out because the adults really wanted a relaxing vacation. The older teens also enjoyed the paddle boards and we brought our own kayaks. They basically left us alone except when they were hungry. It was by far the most relaxing, serene FAMILY vacation we've ever been on. The drive in on route 43 ( I believe) was breathtaking. We tried to go to the Peaks of Otter when leaving but it was so foggy it was impossible to even see mountains. The house was well equipped with everything you needed. Lastly, the temps were so cool at the end of Aug that we had the ac turned up on most days and nights. Thank you Bill for sharing your home we hope to come back!
