BEST LOCATION ON THE LAKE - YOUR WATERFRONT RETREAT AWAITS

Moneta House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms

Perched on a gentle slope overlooking the water, this vacation rental offers the ultimate Smith Mountain Lake experience. Looking to cool off in the summer heat? Simply hop off the private dock and into the crisp, refreshing water. You can also grab one of the two complimentary kayaks and cruise along the shore. Either way, you’ll find that the house is in a low-traffic cove that makes it ideal for swimming and other low-key water sports. When you’re ready to kick back and relax, you can take your pick of the shoreline cabana or the spacious outdoor patio. Both provide unparalleled views of the lake.

Inside, you’ll find that the house feels more like a home than a vacation rental. We lived here for several years before work relocated us to Arizona, and we’ve left all the amenities you would expect in a well-cared-for family home. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare gourmet meals for a crowd, and stylish furnishings are plush but comfortable. We also have a terrace level with an extra living room for your kids; it includes a Wii game station, DVD player, and a large High Definition TV.

Off the terrace level is a huge deck with table, chairs, lounge and Weber Genesis BBQ for your grilling pleasures. Enjoy your morning coffee with great views of the lake, an afternoon card game or the beautiful sunsets. There is a fenced yard for your four-legged family member to play and we do not charge anything extra to bring your dog. The home offers 4 bedroom and 2.5 baths and over 2200 square feet of living space. The property is .34 acres with 120 feet of prime water frontage.

In terms of location, the Smith Mountain Lake vacation rental couldn’t be better situated. On one hand, the house feels very private and secluded. On the other, it only takes two minutes to drive into town, where you’ll find everything from boat rentals at Captain's Quarters to miniature golf at Bridgewater Plaza. The area also has plenty of restaurants and grocery stores.

There is high speed internet with Wi-Fi access throughout the entire home. There is parking for 4 cars and additional room for a boat and jet-ski trailer. The public 'put in' ramp is close by to the home.

Please note Bedford County says the max occupancy of this home is 8 people based to the size of the septic system. Be VERY careful renting a home without the proper rental permits and septic capacity, as your stay can be cut short by the county. This home is 100% in compliance with the county regulations. They are now strictly enforcing this policy at the lake.

The owners are Tom & Tracy and their kids Tate & Taylor. Tom owns a real estate company and Tracy is a healthcare executive. They lived in Charlottesville, Virginia for 10 years prior to being relocated out west. The owners now share their time between Smith Mountain Lake and their home in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The Seeley's purchased this house in 2009

We LOVE Smith Mountain Lake. The location of the home is close to all the action, but still very private. We were looking for a place to spend quality family time and we found it. We are there much of the time when it's not rented, so it is well maintained and professionally managed. We feel very lucky we found this very special home and are happy to share it with our guests.

Easy walk to your own private dock and boat house in a VERY private cove. This is one of the best locations on the entire lake. Bridgewater Plaza is minutes by car or boat. The kids love the location and the house. There is not a minute of boredom when we are at the lake.

Amazing Lakefront Rental!! One of the Best!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 21, 2012

First of all, what a pleasure working with the owner. He was outstanding at communication and answered any question I had.

The lakehouse was great. The pictures are exactly what you get when you get there. Very pet friendly. Loved the fenced in yard. It was very relaxing and exactly what we needed. I agree with the other reviews that it doesn't feel like a rental, but a home.

Our son loved the games and puzzles on the back wall. He could not get enough of them .The TV and video games were great, although we spent the majority of our time in the lake and on the deck.

We rented a pontoon boat for 3 days and we easily were able to dock it at the house. Krogers/Food Lion were just a few miles away and we made daily trips there.

We highly recommend the Smith Mountain Lake Community Park. It's about a 12 minute drive. We were able to easily take our dogs into the water and there was a small beach for our 3.5 year old to swim in.

I would also recommend going to see the Smith Mountain Lake Dam. It's pretty amazing.

It was truly a positive experience and I would highly recommend this Lakehouse to everybody and anybody.

The owner and the house are top notch.

Tom - Thanks for a truly memorable, relaxing, perfect vacation.
Owner's Response: Hi Angie, Thank you so much for the awesome review. Nothing is better than knowing our guests enjoy the home as much as we do. We try very hard to make the home as inviting as possible. We are so glad you had a great time and we hope to have you back again. Thank you for being our guest.

This was the perfect getaway. The house had everything we needed and more. We loved our time there and can't wait to rent it during the summer months so we can swim and tube as well. The owner was very helpful and wonderful to work with.

The Best of Smith Mountain Lake

We had the pleasure of staying at this home over the past summer. The home is laid out very well and was perfect for our group of 8 and our dog Missy. The kids had their own space and so did the adults. We were never on top of each other. The dock and boat house are a great place to hang out. The cove was private and protected which was great for the kids to swim. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could think of. You can tell the owners care for the home very well. Speaking of the owners, Tom was really great to deal with. He answered all of our many questions and really made the whole process easy. We got our deposit check in the mail two days after we left which was a nice surprise. We would all highly recommend this home to any family looking for a good time at the lake.

Owner's Response: Hi Peggy, thank you for the terrific review. You seem to love the home as much as we do. We too love the layout of the home and it works great for our family and friends. Our kids love swimming the cove all day and it is hard to get them out of the water. We hope to have you back soon.

Smith Mountain lake in the Winter

Beautifully designed and fully appointed home. We loved the house - it was perfect for our family and our teenagers imagined how much fun it would be in the summer time - especially with the great dock and pier. We had a little snow and hunkered down to enjoy the views. We hiked Peaks of Otter and visited Moosie's. This house is in an ideal location for Smith Mountain Lake and we really appreciated the owner's hospitality. Everything we needed was at the house. Thank you.
Owner's Response: Hi Amy, Thank you for the great review. We are so glad you loved the house and had a great time. We work very hard to try and make the home as comfortable as possible for our guests and reviews like this are greatly appreciated.

Great House - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 12, 2012

We spent 4th of July week with our friends at this house. We had so much fun! The house is a great size for two families. We brought 2 dogs with us and they had just as much fun as we did. The fenced in yard was perfect for them - with no weak spots for them to escape. The house is close to several grocery stores and shopping areas, but it still feels like a secluded cove - far enough away from the the jet ski and boat traffic of the lake. The house was clean, well decorated; the beds were very comfy and the dock was perfect! On the 4th of July we were able to see lots of firework displays all around the lake - we just sat on the deck and enjoyed the show! Many thanks for a great week! I would definately visit this house again and reccommend to friends.

Owner's Response: Hi Sara, Thank you for the great review. We are so happy that you had such a good time at our lake home. You had the best week of the year! 4th of July is always awesome at the lake!

We are located in the heart of Smith Mountain Lake. Bridgewater Plaza and Hales Ford Bridge are seconds by car or boat. It does not get any better than this. Close to everything, but still in a very private and secluded cove, which is also a no wake zone.
