Welcome to 'Serenity', a gorgeous new 3000 sq. ft. home located directly on the main channel of Smith Mountain Lake. The home has unobstructed 180 degree views of the crystal clear blue lake and is located on a beautiful 3/4 acre private lot at the end of a peninsula. Bright beautiful interior with enormous windows and vaulted ceilings provides a picturesque and serene setting with direct water views from every room in the house. The expansive deck spans the entire width of the home, perfect for grilling and al fresco dining.

The home is tastefully decorated with distinctive new designer furnishings and features LCD TV's, multiple DVD players and Satellite TV. Select a movie from our library of DVDs or play one of the various board games. Spark your competitive side with a game of foosball. The home also features a 2nd kitchen and dining area in the lower level. No need to haul your garbage to external dumpsites at the end of your stay, the home has scheduled trash pickups for your convenience.


Optional linen and towel services are also available for 2 night stays.

View the countless stars from the large party dock or use it as a swimming platform. Let the stress melt away in the large 8 person hot tub overlooking the lake. Take a nap in the hammock by the water or read your favorite book under the weeping willow tree. Watch the sunset from the porch swings or just unwind by the fireplace.

Bring your boat and launch it at the community boat ramp located just three homes down (few minutes by foot)!

The home is close to Hales Ford Bridge, major marinas, boat rentals, shopping centers, and restaurants at the Lake.

'Serenity' is the perfect combination of fun, relaxation, and luxury and is truly the best value rental on the lake. Come enjoy the 'Serenity' of Smith Mountain Lake!

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!

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.

The property is beautiful.

  • 3 of 5

The house and the lake are beautiful. We would have liked to use the boat ramp with the heavy lake traffic. Being two doors down from the rip rap loading dock was noisy and unsettling. All things considered we thought the price was too high.

Great Getaway for the three generations of family, including our dogs!

  • 5 of 5

We had a total of 8 people here celebrating my parents 30th and grandparents 60th wedding anniversary. The property is clean, easy to find, and dog friendly. We chose to rent this house because of the large double deck dock and easy incline for the grandparents to walk up and down to the water. The large yard was also an added bonus for our Labrador retrievers. Everything was absolutely perfect - the only part of our stay that we had to work around was that the house didnt have wifi if you need to do work remotely. We brought a hotspot that worked great and phone service was excellent ... And it was actually nice to disconnect a little. Thanks so much to Jay who also checked in with us at the beginning of our stay to make sure all accommodations were up to standard.

Serenity didn't disappoint

  • 5 of 5

Serenity is exactly as advertised. Beautiful views, beautiful house, which was nicely decorated and an awesome new dock. Our family of seven (all adults) loved everything this property had to offer, including the hot tub (even in 90 degree weather). The bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable. It was a huge plus to have all linens included with this rental. The kitchen was very well stocked with the laundry room conveniently located off of that. We rented a pontoon boat for the week and spent much of our time on that when we weren't swimming & fishing right from the dock at the house. The owner, Jay was very easy to work with and gave us a call just to check in to make sure we had a good week. We were blessed with sunny, warm days and beautiful, breathtaking sunsets. Surrounding us were many different species of birds as well as deer. We would highly recommend staying at Serenity.

Smith Mountain Lake has quickly become one our favorite vacation spots.

SML gem

  • 5 of 5

Two families, a total of 6 of us, spent a week at Serenity. This house is all it's cracked up to be! Beautiful home with magnificent view of the lake. The dock/sundeck are phenomenal. All rooms are well furnished with comfy furniture/beds. Hot tub and gas grill are great. AC is more than adequate, in fact, we had to turn it down it got so cold. Linen service was available and saved us from packing bed linens and towels. The owner, Jay, is very responsive and a pleasure to work with. Overall, a 5 star experience and would do it again!
