Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a truly wonderful week enjoying your beautiful lakefront house. Art and architecture made it a pleasure to be in, and my grandchildren were thrilled with their newfound independence, paddling the canoes from point to point.

We fished, swam, visited the dam and visitor center, the state park, but mostly stayed put on the dock and marveled at the perfect weather. The house is so comfortable and well appointed, with plenty of space to gather or have privacy. Grandchildren voted it the best vacation ever. After they all left on Friday, I had a day to relax, do some writing, and wind down before the trip home.



Thank you for making your home available to us.

My husband and I love the outdoors and built Covered Porches in 2004 with that in mind. Its porches and covered dock allow us to relax and enjoy being outside even when it rains. We have been responsive to the needs and wants of our guests and have made improvements, major and minor, each year. We hope you enjoy Covered Porches as much as we do. We manage our vacation home rental so providing excellent customer service is our top priority. If you need assistance with boat rentals, sightseeing excursions, or anything else, please ask.

Roslyn Foreman purchased this house in 2004

Covered Porches is located on the East side of the lake and we chose this area because of the privacy, large lot and beautiful sunset views. It's tucked in a cove great for swimming yet has a wide water view which opens up into the Roanoke channel. Directly across the lake is Bernard's Landing and less than 2 miles is SML State Park.

The porches are wonderful with their ceiling fans and comfortable chairs. The dock is covered so that when it rains or is too hot, we can still enjoy being outside. Their are ceiling fans and comfortable chairs on the porches as well as the dock.

The fireplace off the Master bedroom is perfect for those cool evenings. A fire pit is available. 1/2 mile from our home is Parkway Marina where boat rentals are available. Smith Mountain Lake State Park is 3 miles from our home, great for hiking, playground for kids.

NICE FAMILY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This was our second year at Covered Porches. There were ten of us this year, spanning three generations. There are several things we enjoy greatly: the dock, which is awesome; the porch, where we spent many hours staring out at the water hanging out; and the large gathering table where we shared meals and played games. Between the two levels and the variety of bedrooms everyone was able to find a place to be alone when needed or to congregate in the main spaces. The kids had a great place to hang out downstairs. We rented a pontoon from Parkway Marina and spent many hours towing the kids around on a tube and searching for the ice cream boat. We also enjoyed the canoes, kayaks, and the fire pit. This is a wonderful, very comfortable place to spend time vacationing.

BEYOND WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
This review is very late but I still want to write it because Roselyn and her family deserve to be thanked. I always conduct a ton of research before making any decisions on anything in my life and reviews are always helpful. My family and I stayed here for a long weekend in early November 2013 and we had an amazing time. The house was immaculate and well appointed with everything we could possibly want. Each of us has a bedroom to ourselves which gave us plenty of space but the common areas of the house were so inviting we loved sharing time together.
We had big family breakfasts in the warm and welcoming kitchen and every night we built a fire in the fire pit, made s’mores, talked, laughed, and made lasting memories. The deck off of the master suite had a very cozy fireplace which we used while having our early morning coffee/tea. The kayaks were perfect for calm relaxation on the water. We are thinking about making this a yearly trip and I have no doubt in my mind that we will return to this beautiful home again. Roselyn was more than wonderful and she helped bring our family closer together.

Thank you :)

We will look forward to having you back, anytime! Thanks for your kind review. You mentioned some of my favorite places to be; on the kayak, around the fire pit and on the porch off the master where we enjoy our coffee and get away for quiet reading time! Look forward to having you back soon!

PERFECT FAMILY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
From the initial contact with the owner, to the day we checked out, every aspect of this trip was outstanding. The house is magnificent and the cove where the house is located is pristine. The entire family enjoyed the vacation. We rented a pontoon boat at Parkway Marina so that we could enjoy everything the lake has to offer. If you are looking for a great casual meal, Kings Point Pub and Portside Grill & Bar are great options. I highly recommend Covered Porches for your next getaway.

GREAT WEEKEND IN AN AWESOME HOUSE!!!

  • 5 of 5
We are graduate students from Virginia Tech who Stayed at Covered Porches for Easter Weekend. Although 8 of us stayed which was close to the max, this house still had more than enough room for all 8 of us to be comfortable and not bunched up!
We had an amazing weekend in this beautiful home. The view of the lake was breathtaking and we never had to leave to get something we were missing as the house was fully stocked! We canoed,kayaked,swam, and fished in the lake from the beautiful dock/cabana house. Our friend who lives across the lake was able to drive his boat across and have somewhere to properly park it.
It was really hard to leave on Sunday but to our surprise we didn't have to check out til 5pm so we were able to stay and enjoy a proper Easter Sunday!

Roslyn was very quick to respond to our request to stay and provided plenty of information leading up to our trip to make sure we had everything we needed.

Overall it was great stress free weekend to relax with fellow classmates and catch up with old friends and this beautiful home made it all happen.

Thank you Roslyn!

Sincerely,

Graduate Hokies

FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 10 (including 4 kids) had a wonderful stay at Covered Porches! The kitchen is well-stocked, there are plenty of extra blankets, the TVs all worked well, the furniture is comfortable and OH! The view is incredible! It was chilly for us during our visit but a perfect opportunity to use the firepit and the outdoor fireplace. We also managed to do a little fishing off the dock and took a short drive to the park just down the road. The house is so cozy and the owners are so attentive. SUCH a wonderful place to spend a long weekend for our family. Thank you so much!!
