Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned from your beautiful home and a fabulous trip to Smith Mountain Lake.



Your home is beautiful and we enjoyed being there immensely. The seating upstairs and downstairs is extremely comfortable. The beds were also very comfortable. We really enjoyed the hot tub and were impressed that you have it serviced between guest visits. Loved the deck on the house and on the boat dock. The kitchen is very nice and well appointed. Very nice furniture throughout the house. Nicely decorated. Loved the porch swing. It was great to have a washer and dryer available. The view is amazing. We all wished that we could have stayed longer.



Thank you so much...

Terrific House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a quick get-away at Thanksgiving and we came upon the listing for this house. The house is absolutely terrific - it sits right on the lake and is comfortable and inviting. The views of the lake from the house are awesome! Restaurants and shops are not too far away. We liked it so much, we're going back in May!

Beautiful Property, Killer 2 level Deck

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful as seen in the pictures. The best part about this property for our group was the deck. Even when boating the lake there were few docks that compared. It had two levels and we could have spent the whole week out there. The house was nice as spacious as well. A+ for cleanliness. The property owner was extremely responsive and communicated very well. Would highly recommend!!!!!!!

Very nice house, dock and wide water lake views.

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice house for up to 8 people. The multi-level dock is very good, with ample room to swim, fish, dock a boat/jet ski, or just sit and enjoy the view. Although the lot has a significant elevation change from house to water, it is manageable. The house is both comfortable and flexible. The only real drawback is the winding road to get to the property. I recommend that you take a close look at renting this house.

Impressive Lakefront Home

  • 5 of 5

The lakefront home was modern, up to date, and well furnished. We did not lack for anything in the kitchen or throughout the house. The owner, Jay, was very quick to respond to any and all inquiries. We thoroughly enjoyed the newly renovated dock on the lake.
