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!

Very hard to beat!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's 3rd year at Dream Come True and, as usual, everyone had a great time. If you're looking for a place to jump in the lake and have fun, this is the place to do it. We brought 2 bass boats and a SeaDoo which had plenty of dock space. If you don't have your own "water toys", David and Judy provide quite a few for your use. My only caution to boat owners is that you need to be good at backing up with your trailer(s) if you're going to park them at the house. Otherwise, everything you need for a great trip is here.

Owner's Response: You definitely don't have to worry about water toys when staying at our home! If you have boat trailers, we recommend that you back them in at the top of our hill onto our grass by the trash cans. That is a straight shot! Our drive way is curvy cause the house sits at the shore line so the entire front of the house is yard and driveway!

LOVED our time here! Will be returning!

  • 5 of 5

We loved a dream come true! It was perfect for our annual girls trip to SML. We are so glad we rented this house and it will not be the last time!

There was plenty to do and so much room for us in the home. Our dog loved it as well. The house is fully stocked with kitchen supplies, indoor activities (ping pong, pool, puzzles, movies, etc) for when it rained, and the garage was full with plenty of floats and kayaks! The fire pit was ideal for roasting marshmallows and relaxing in the evening (big bonus wood already provided!!). There was a lot of privacy for being right on the lake as well. The notes all along the house were nice to refer to throughout the long weekend.

The home is beautiful inside and out. We are spoiled now and are so glad to have found your home Judy! We plan to continue coming back. Thank you again!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you ladies!! We love to make our house enjoyable inside & out! We want our guest to relax & not have to worry about a thing (ex. firewood for the fire pit, floats, games, actually too many things to list here!). Can't wait to have y'all back!

3rd time's a charm!

  • 5 of 5

My third visit to Dream Come True was perfect as were the previous two visits. This lovely home is just as advertised, if not better. It is lovingly maintained, well-equipped, and perfectly situated. Nothing beats morning coffee on the deck with a to-die-for view and the sunsets are nothing short of stunning! I highly recommend this house for anyone looking for the perfect get away, whether it be couples, families or multiple generations of families. It is perfect in every way, with no detail overlooked. Thank you, Judy & David for sharing your beautiful home with us. We look forward to returning next year!
