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 Smith Mountain Lake

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!

Perfect Family Get-Together

  • 5 of 5

Dream Come True is a perfect namesake for this home and destination and suited our family perfectly! We were all in love with the beautiful home and location from the moment we entered the front door. The picturesque views from almost every room in the house were breathtaking. We had planned a family get-away with our two grown "kids" and our parents and had requirements to suit an array of ages and interests - and this home did not disappoint! We had three generations 20's, 50's and 80's and could not have found a home better suited to our family wants and needs. Our patriarch is a heart transplant recipient and can't make the hills and trek to the lake as he'd worries here as he could walk right onto the spacious deck overlooking the lake! We had awesome family meals on that deck watching both sunrises and sunsets. The home itself was well appointed and beautifully decorated. The owners left no stone unturned in providing the necessities - we lacked for nothing! The home was immaculate and very clean; the layout ideal as each family had their private bedrooms and baths. Added favorites in the house were the oversized walk-in tiled shower and the lower level gameroom, where we would have simultaneous puzzle, card games and pool tournaments. We wrapped up our last night festivities around the firepit overlooking the water, serenaded by our daughter and her guitar. Judy was the perfect homeowner checking in on us and making sure we had everything we needed. She was also so resourceful in getting us information on Smith Mountain Lake, as this was everyone's first visit. We rented a pontoon boat for the weekend, thanks to Judy's suggestions! By trade, my husband and I are a builder and a real estate agent and can be pretty particular...we both give "Dream Come True" and the homeowners the highest recommendation. Everyone is already planning to come back next year and it is unanimous that we choose "DREAM COME TRUE"! Thank you for such a memorable weekend. Blessings from the Stewart family - Pinehurst, NC

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! We love it when families visit our home with multi generations! It is a great home for family gatherings. Being right on the water with no climb/steps is perfect for the older family members!! Thank you for being such a great renter!

Look no further, highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The only problem was it wasn't long enough. The house is wonderful and is situated in a beautiful, quiet cove. Plus the house has everything you need for a great vacation. If you get bored while here you're simply not trying.

The owner was a delight, very friendly and accommodating. I can't thank her enough. Take my advice and book this property while it's still available.

Everything you could want at the lake

  • 5 of 5

We noticed "Dream come True" when looking for a place for our week at Smith Mountain Lake. Its larger than we needed but we couldn't resist staying there once we saw the pictures. The bedrooms are very nicely sized with 2 of the bedrooms having King beds. The lower level has a bar, pool table, plus a large sectional sofa , fireplace, and large screen TV with Direct TV and Blu-Ray DVD. For anybody who loves the water, the irresistible appeal of "Dream come True" is the cottage's location at the edge of the water. Step out the door of the house onto a large deck OVER the water, not 150 steps to the water like almost every other place at the lake. We spent our mornings on the deck with a cup of coffee and early evenings on the deck with a glass of wine. Below the deck is a great dock with Tiki Bar. The dock is well situated and easy to tie up your boat. The amenities already mentioned are enough alone to justify this place on your short list. What takes it over the top is how well the owners take care of the place. Many places for rent feel like like they've been abandoned. The owners trust us to take care of their place so its actually stocked with a lot of the things you might need during your stay. As you can tell, we really like Dream come True. We reserved our week for next year before we left this year.

Owner's Response: You are right! Dream Come True is a very special & unique home on SML hence the name!! When we walked in the door of this home when house hunting, we knew we had found that special place that we had been hunting for & once we walked out onto the deck over the water there was no doubt in our minds that this was the one! We love Dream & put a lot of effort in taking care of it so others will enjoy our home. We visit every 2 weeks to insure the home is inviting to our guest! We can't wait to have y'all return!! We love our repeat renters!

Excellent family vacation home, definitely lives up to it's name "Dream Come True"

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views! Lovely, well maintained home equipped with just about anything & everything you can think of. The Long's definitely take pride in their home & want their guests to enjoy their stay. The house is set up for all ages. My elderly parents were able to enjoy all living & play areas of the house. A fully stocked kitchen, the use of water toys, games, puzzles, pool table & the ability to bring your family pet are all a bonus! Plenty of things to do to occupy your time! Fishing, water sports, plenty of wood available for the fire pit & wineries to tour! I would definitely stay there again!

The Jewel of the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

You can cruise around SML and droll over the lavish homes and properties that exist there; but unless you experience 1141 Diane Drive you have not enjoyed your vacation, especially if you are a boater!! This place has it all....and the SECRET is the house is ON THE LAKE...not on the hill and you walk to your climbing a million steps to get to the come out of your house to a wonderful covered dock with Tiki Bar and your boat is waiting for you! This has been a wonderful experience for 5 couples from PA, who, when they come again would not stay at any other the is all that and more!!! The landscape, the house, the dock, the toys, the fire pit, the deck and even a fenced in yard for your puppy!!!! Not to mention the owner who is extremely accommodating you actually think you are talking to your sister!!! Important to us was the dock due to our large boats, and believe me...because of the care these people take of this place, we had no problem securing three of them for the week! Thank you Judy for making our experience at SML a delight. We will come back to SML, but there is no other place we would consider staying!! It is PERFECT!!!

TOP TOP TOP of the line vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The listing was the draw. The home was beautiful, the yard was beautiful, the lake was beautiful and the view was beautiful. This vacation was the absolute best and there was NOTHING we could have wanted that wasn't provided by the owner. Judy was so friendly and helpful, I felt she was family. The kitchen had everything including decent steak knives, which is rare in a rental property. We loved it and we shall return. It was like being in the home we wish we had. Can't say enough great things.
