About Judy

We live in NC and have been coming to SML for several years with our family. We own a business so we have the flexibility to visit our home every 2 weeks. Even when it is booked, we go up and check on things on the day renters are leaving. Therefore, we can keep the house in excellent condition!

Judy purchased this house in 2007

Why Judy chose Moneta

Our home is very unique and truly a 'lake house'! We did not want to climb steps or a hill to go back and forth to the water so when we saw this home we knew it was the one! We love the fireplaces, the woodwork and best of all - the deck over the water that is accessed straight from the living room!! Also, the master bedroom is beautiful - cathedral wood ceiling, stone gas fireplace and a deck over the water!

What makes this house unique

This home is on the water. When the lake is at full pond, the water hits the foundation of our home! I kid people & tell them that they could fish out of the master bedroom windows!! It is so peaceful! We visit our home every 2 weeks - even during the summer months - to personally check on it and make sure it is in top condition for our visitors! The sunset views from our home are fantastic. The best part is you feel as though you are on top of the lake - even standing at the kitchen sink! It is truly one of the most unique homes on SML! Our home is equipped like no other. We leave it as though we were staying there except for our personal food! You name it, we have it! From fully equipped kitchen, lake toys, games, books, extensive video collection, puzzles! We have a tiki bar but actually the whole house is your tiki bar cause the house sits on the lake! Plenty of dock room for sunning & watching the sunsets. Large floater to tie boats up to or to sit on a watch the lake activity! Two decks over the water & connected onto the house. Eat your meals on the upper deck which extends straight out from the living room/kitchen area. Come enjoy our home as much as we do! We have now added 3 kayaks! We are situated in a great cove to use the kayaks. We love to have our dogs with us so we have a fenced in yard plus the dock has a gate on it so the dogs can enjoy lake time as well!

Glorious perfection

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay and it was so wonderful. The house, the lake, the weather. I want to say that if you can't find something you need, look again because it is there. This may be the best equipped home I have ever seen. And lake toys? Everything. My family loves everything about Dream Come True. So appropriately named. Relaxation to the max.

This property is truly a Dream Come True!

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and the owners are super nice and very accessible. This is a dog friendly place and Murphy loves it here. There are so many water "toys" (floats, kayaks, tubes, noodles, etc) - everything you would want for a lake vacation. The house is right on the water so no long walks needed! Boat/jet ski/pontoon rentals are nearby along with gas. The cove is quiet and the view from the deck is spectacular. BTW, linens are provided so one less thing to pack. There is nothing more you would need.

We have been there multiple times and cannot wait to return.

It's an amazing one of a kind home on the water!

  • 5 of 5

We have loved coming to Judy and Dave's home "Dreams Come True" for years with our family. Their home is lovingly well maintained and clean and is unique being located "on" the water with so many amenities offered inside the home as well as for the lake. Judy and Dave are in easy reach at all times if you should have a question or are in need of something. They make sure your stay is fantastic!

Fantastic setting and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this house. We were two families of 4 (kids ranging from 8 to 12 years old), plus one dog. There was plenty of space for everyone, and it was such a relaxing week. You are right on the lake, and the owners have plenty of rafts, kayaks, and other water toys so that we really didn't need to bring anything. There are also plenty of DVDs and games, and we had a great time playing pool and poker. Both of the larger bedrooms were perfect for the adults, and the master bedroom is particularly great.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As grandparents, we were fortunate to stay with our granddaughter, Rachel, and her family in this beautiful house during her 2017 Liberty University graduation week. The grandchildren had a ball swimming and boating. Wonderful quality family time before that big graduation event. We loved it!
