About Steve Strand

My parents built this house in the 1980's and we've spent many weekends and holidays together here through the years. Now that our children are teenagers, our lives are busy and we don't get together as often. But we all have fond memories of our times at SML!

Our entire family loves the lake house! From swimmers to sunbathers and fishermen to porch-rockers, our family includes them all. And everyone's unique pasttime is readily available at Pop's Pleasure.

My mother loves to sit on the porch, listening to the birds and enjoying the beautiful trees. I spend most of my time floating in the water or sunbathing with a book. My nephews are great fishermen, and our girls love to ski and knee-board.

At night, we play games, work jigsaw puzzles, watch movies/TV, or visit Bridgewater Plaza for ice cream and live music. There is something for everyone at Smith Mountain Lake!

Steve Strand purchased this cottage in 1983

Why Steve Strand chose Moneta

Crisp air, clear water and beauty surround you at Smith Mountain Lake. Birds and deer are plentiful and the lake has more than 500 miles of shoreline. And our cottage is only minutes away from grocery stores, pharmacies and other modern conveniences.

What makes this cottage unique

Visit the Booker T Washington birthplace to learn about slavery and education.

Drive on the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway or visit the Peaks of Otter and enjoy a meal in its historic lodge.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a fabulous time! The weather was perfect. There was one nasty storm which we watched from the screened porch. The children loved the lake - the adults did, too! The boys were so worn out from simming and fishing by Wednesday, they took a four hour afternoon nap. I was also able to visit with several cousins while here. Thanks you for sharing your home!

Great location

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfectly suited for two small families like us, with two bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs. The location was great, right on the lake and near shopping and restaurants. We loved sitting out on the porch and looking at the lake. The only downside was the water - it had a pretty strong sulfur odor. Be sure to bring drinking water.

Wonderful house, beautiful view, perfect stay! Screened in porch was awesome!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time staying at Pop's Pleasure! The house is set up very nicely for extended families. We had 3 adult couples and 2 children, and it was nice that there were 2 bedrooms up and 2 down so the kids were on one floor with their parents and the other adult couples could have separate space.

The screened porch overlooking the lake is wonderful. We ate every meal on that porch and it there were plenty of chairs to relax in at other times. It could use some more light, though, as we enjoyed spending the evenings on the porch.

Nice, easy walk down to the dock. We even caught and ate a catfish from the dock! The water was wonderful for swimming, kayaking, boating.

I'm not sure why the one reviewer said that parking was difficult, because it was not. The circle drive has room for probably at least 5 cars and if you run out of space you can park in the cul-de-sac.

We loved it!

Beautiful Setting

  • 4 of 5
The lake was a real pleasure for fishing, boating and swimming. We had a wonderful time enjoying the screened in porch from our first cup of morning coffee to our evening meals. The house was clean and well maintained and felt like a home. I would recommend Pop's Pleasure to anyone wanting a peaceful get away.

GREAT SPOT ON THE LAKE

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a wonderful week at "Pop's Pleasure"-it was a pleasure for us as well. The home was more than adequate in size for the 8 of us(all adults). I have 3 criteria for choosing a rental at SML and it more than met all 3. First, I want a screened in porch as mosquitos at night can hinder sitting outside-the screened in porch is large with a nice sitting area, rocking chairs and a dining table for 8-10 along with another game table. We spent alot of time out there. Secondly, I want a nice swimming area-this is a perfect spot on the lake, open to the main area but buffered by an island directly across from it. The dock has both sun and shade all day so it met everyone's needs. We floated in the water for hours. Also rented paddleboards for the week and everyone took turned paddling into the coves on either side. Third, I want the home to feel welcoming with plenty of room for my family. This home more than met our needs-plenty of room for everyone to be together to watch tv, great kitchen with ample counter space and the nice size bedrooms. We didn't even use the family room downstairs. All in all, I highly recommend this home as the family has gone to great lengths to make it welcoming- "it had me at hello". We will be back.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you had a fun and relaxing time at Pop's Pleasure and do hope you will visit our home again! I'm headed to the lake for my week this Saturday and can't wait to swing in the hammock and float in the lake! Just the relaxation I need after a busy spring and summer. Hope to see you again next year and thanks for the review.
