Close to shopping, grocery stores, restaurants and all other amenities by Water and by Land off Isle of Pines Dr.
Slightly more than 1 acre of gently sloping land with stone path to the dock. Beautiful view of the lake in a quiet cove across from the Tiki Bar, Virginia Dare and the State Park. Screened in Sun Deck off kitchen for morning coffee or quiet dinners. 10X25 patio under the sun porch with beautiful views of the lake. Lots of wildlife to view including two orphaned fawns that play in the lawn.
Just what the doctor ordered. A relaxing weekend by forgetting all the stress and enjoying the beauty of nature and great friends. Nice family owned wineries close by to enjoy a good glass of wine. The house is cosy and quiet so you can hear all the deer in the back yard. Next time I will stay later and enjoy a swim in the lake!
If family invited you to stay at their place while they were away is the feeling we had at this rental. Which meant it was homey but a bit quirky at the same time. I'm not used to seeing personal pictures on the dresser in the bedrooms at rentals and there were some ongoing projects in some areas of the house. It wasn't filthy, but not exactly real clean either. We were hit with a strong dog odor when we first arrived and had to re-wash some linens because of dog hair but after the A/C ran awhile it freshened. The master bedroom had a very uncomfortable creaky bed and the walls were thin because our daughter could hear us talking from her bedroom next door. We took some time to rid the refrigerator and pantry of expired food. Granted it was nice to have some condiments and there were plenty of spices on hand to help with the cooking. Other positives were the kitchen was a good size and well equipped. The closed in porch was an excellent place to start the day with a cup of coffee and a great view. We rented a pontoon boat that we had at the dock that was located in a very convenient location on the lake. If the rate was higher I would of taken a star but compared to the cost of some of the other rentals in the area and the location, I thought a 3 star rating was fair. I'm sure the owner, who is a great guy, will continue to make improvements.
Overall this is our favorite lake home for so many reasons. We have been renting homes at SML for the past six years. We love it here! Since we found this home we have not had the need to stay anywhere else. Bob is great to work with and he makes sure you are comfortable. His home is cozy and comfortable, and the perfect spot for us. The deck and screen porch are both great for dining and the gentle slop leading to the dock is a doable and easy walk for all ages. The sunrises are breathtaking and the privacy of this quiet cove is just what we need when we are taking time away from the daily grind. We love the convenience of the location as it is close by land or water to all of our favorite spots. Whalers is right around the corner and Portside and Jake's Place are just a short drive as well. I highly recommend this cozy home.
Lovely home on the lake with a view of the sunrise in the am as well as all the boats coming and going. Gorgeous in the morning. Truly a relaxing spot. Boating on this huge lake is wonderful; they say the bass fishing is terrific so will have to come back to try it. Great dock, cozy and comfortable house; great TV and fireplace. Huge yard and a short ride to stores and places to eat out. Definitely would come back.
My stay at the lake house was just what I needed after a busy week at work! The area is nice and quiet, and the view is amazing. The best thing about the house was all of the amenities! Usually when you rent a place you have to buy paper plates, extra paper towels, and sometimes even bring your own bed sheets. This place has everything you need! We had everything we needed to cook, including spices, as well as everything we needed for toiletries and towels. This re-leaved so much unnecessary time wasting like running to the store or having to pack an extra bag just for extras. I got to spend all of my time relaxing! I would definitely recommend this place and hope to go back soon!
This is a lovely, comfortable home in a quiet neighborhood perfect for joggers, walkers, kids, & dogs. I have stayed in several SML homes over the years, and would rate this one of my best stays. The slope to the water is short & easy, plenty of lawn for the kids to play on, the neighborhood is lovely, & you are close to everything. My dogs and I walked for miles each morning & evening, just enjoying the shady lanes & lovely homes tucked into the trees. In between we played in the water, or just relaxed in the sun room watching the boats (when I wasn't shooting pool downstairs). Very popular cove for tubing & water-skiing...mostly Moms & Dads with their kids; a great family spot. Thanks Bob, for taking us on such short notice and providing just the stress relief I was sorely needing! The 4-leggeds have slept since we got home this morning. A sure sign of a successful trip.
