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!

Such a great house!

  • 4 of 5

The pictures didn't do it justice! Kind of tricky to find but once we were there, we stayed put for the entire weekend. The house is beautiful and feels much more modern inside than the outside led us to believe. Lots of room and a baby gate already in place -- perfect for our group! The neighbor/maintenance guy stopped by and chatted with us. He was very friendly and helpful! Owner was responsive to questions and provided great feedback. No WiFi, be warned! But aside from that, no complaints!

Beautiful Stay

  • 5 of 5

The place jus as stated, the property is well maintained and have great customer service. The owner was responsive to all of our question and very service oriented. Having Dwain, his handy-man two houses down gave us peace of mind, plus he is great. We loved the views, the peace and tranquility. We have already recommend this house to our friends/family and are looking at our next stay!

A bit disappointing

  • 3 of 5

We did enjoy our week in spite of the fact that the reality did not measure up to the photos (which make it look much more spacious and clean). We were misled by the superb reviews and had a hard time trying to figure out if perhaps the place had just been allowed to deteriorate after the summer season ended. We have communicated our disappointment to the owner and he graciously responded that he wished we had called him and he would have sent people over to deal with it but when you have only a week you don’t want workman hovering around. But all in all, there are many very nice features about Serenity.

Annual Trip to SML

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to SML for the past 11 years. This is the first time we stayed at Serenity and it was everything we hoped for. The house is very clean, the kitchen well equipped and all of the bedrooms were a nice size. Everyone enjoyed being outside on the deck and down on the dock. It was great having a hot tub too! The view at Serenity is beautiful. Jay was very nice to work with. I would definitely recommend renting this lovely home.

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!!!!!!!
