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!

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

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.

Wonderful wineries are only a few minutes away!

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.

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.

Beautiful lake, great house!

  • 5 of 5
Our first time at SML, and we're hooked! The lake is clean and inviting, and the largemouth and striper fishing is great right out front; get out there early to beat the fishing guides to it! We found the house to be charming, very clean and up to date, and just as described. No mustiness to the walkout level. The comfortable screen porch is perfect, a nice spot to lounge with a book or an iced tea. Driveway is a bit of a tight squeeze, but we fit 2 cars and a small pickup. Big dock, and the water's deep enough for diving. No beach or shallow area for wading with little ones, but there's a nearby island with one you can easily boat to and anchor. If you're extremely sensitive to a sulfur smell in your drinking water, you may want to bring a filter pitcher (or buy water), but most of us were not bothered by it. Don't worry about grocery shopping before you come, as there are nice supermarkets and whatever else you need within a short drive. We rented a pontoon boat from a nearby marina, Parrot Cove, and explored all week; there are endless coves to check out and a few restaurants you can visit by boat. We especially liked The Landing, where the atmosphere isn't fussy and the food is top-notch, and you can also order off the pub menu in the evening. We had a terrific family vacation and highly recommend this cute lake house.

Ultimate Relaxation Destination

  • 5 of 5
This rental was the ultimate relaxation destination! It was extremely clean and had lots of space for kids and adults to spread out. We had 2 teenage boys and a girl. They were never bored, even though we made them "unplug" for the week. There was a mini pool/foosball table and several games.The layout was great. The two levels provided areas that people could just get away for some quiet time. The huge screened-in porch was a favorite with all, especially for doing puzzles and reading. The porch also had a great view of the lake and dock. It was a serene spot, especially in the mornings. Our family are huge cooks. We found the kitchen well stocked. The hammock is a must. Location was great, less than 10 mins to 2 grocery stores, CVS, and movie theatre. 15 mins away was a reasonable marina to rent water toys as well as a pizza place and some nice shops. A major storm had hit just before we arrived. The owners quickly assisted with a branch removal from the roof. Dock is great for fishing and the lake is perfect for swimming and floating. A great thanks to the Strand family for sharing their home! We hope to come back again. It was truly one of our best vacations ever!
