Delightful clean, well-appointed lakeside house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10 days at Autumn Cove. The house was spotlessly clean & furnished to a high standard. Visiting from Scotland, we were grateful that our host was very efficient in answering the few email queries we had. We arranged linen hire from 'Wegotyoucovered'. Views over the lake were stunning and the daily swims off the dock were so welcome. We hired a motor boat and tube one day from Bridgewater Marina and the family had fun exploring the coves and enjoying the warm water. We were especially taken with the ospreys, bald eagle, hummingbirds, cardinals, swallowtails and deer by the house. We had many interesting visits including Walton's Mountain Museum at Schuyler, hiking at Peaks of Otter (we'd recommend the shuttle bus to near the summit), the Smith Mountain Lake state park, shopping in Roanoke, and mini golf at Hot Shots in Westlake (really good fun) and at Bridgewater Plaza. A drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway is not to be missed. We would also recommend some great restaurants including Waller's, Vinnie's, Cancun Mexican at Westlake and Mango's at Bridgewater Plaza. Food Lion in Moneta is very convenient for provisions. We would love to return!

Owner's Response: We were very pleased to welcome this family. As international travelers, their arrangements required a little extra attention, which we were happy to provide. It is refreshing to read about the things they saw and valued during their stay at the lake. We are pleased that their stay was enjoyable. They are very considerate, wonderful renters!

Beautiful home with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Autumn Cove for a weekend get-a- way. With snow on the ground upon arrival, the scene was picturesque. We had a wonderful time as a family and made special memories. Everything needed for the kitchen was stocked and in good working order. There were games, books and even an air hockey table for loads of fun. As the snow melted we enjoyed the deck and dock. Resturants and shopping are within 10 minutes away. The set up for Autumn Cove is family friendly. We hope to return soon.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We decided to have an early Thanksgiving at the lake this year to celebrate with my children who are in the military. Perfect location. Lots of room for my entire family and mother to stay comfortably. Stores within driving distance. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook an entire feast. Plenty of room for everyone to sit together and eat. Basement area that the kids loved - air hockey battles every night! We really enjoyed our stay and would rent this house again in a heart beat. BEAUTIFUL VIEW! Cannot say enough great things about this home or the owners. Thank you for letting us stay. We made countless new memories here that will last a lifetime. Best Thanksgiving vacation we have ever taken.

Owner's Response: Very pleased to help set up a gathering for this family with members serving our nation in the armed forces. The arrangements came together quickly when a window of availability for all guests came into alignment. Details and questions were communicated efficiently and professionally. We'd happily welcome them back at the lake!

Relaxing Lake Home Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home on Smith Mountain Lake was a perfect retreat for 5 single women on a long weekend getaway. The 3 bedroom/3 bath accommodations gave us ample personal space, yet provided generous common areas to gather and enjoy a meal and social time. The spacious deck afforded beautiful views of the lake and surrounding area. Although we were arriving in the evening, the owner provided specific directions to the home (GPS could be misleading) and had the exterior lights blazing so we could find our home on a very dark night.The home was clean and the owner was accessible and accommodating both during the rental process and during our stay. Do be aware that bath and bed linens require a request from a linen company. However, the request can be done online and when we arrived the beds were made and the bath linens were awaiting our use.The frequent deer sightings were an added bonus to an already delightful weekend.

Owner's Response: These renters are experienced HomeAway clients and helped to improve the quality of the property listing and web page. Their feedback before and after their rental has been helpful. I am grateful for their appreciation of a few extra efforts made for their after-dark arrival and their stay.

Awesome Weekend at Smith Mtn Lake

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for Graduation weekend at Liberty University. It was only about 45 minutes from campus, but it allowed us to be away from all of the hustle and bustle and relax a little. The first thing we did when we arrived was go straight out onto the deck to check out the view. The deck was freshly painted with new furniture and the view was beautiful. There were two ducks splashing around in the water and the kids really enjoyed seeing them. The house was exactly what we needed. When you pull into the driveway, the front door is only steps away and it was very easy to unload/load the car. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and everything was very clean. I especially liked that the bathrooms had separate doors to the shower and toilet so that more than one person could use the space. This was especially nice for us on the morning of Graduation when 6 people were getting ready at the same time. There is a Food Lion shopping center about 7 minutes away that also has a couple of restaurants and a Dollar General nearby. We cooked one night and the kitchen had everything we needed, including tin foil and salt and pepper. We ordered out the next night from Lago’s Pizza (which is adjacent to Food Lion) and the food there was delicious! The views from the house are wonderful. There are sliding glass doors that lead to a deck upstairs or a patio downstairs. The dock is well maintained and we enjoyed a little time out there as well. It did rain during our stay, but that really didn’t bother us. My husband and son were able to get a little fishing in and the kids really enjoyed the air hockey table that was downstairs. There were board games and books available and we never even turned the TV on. It was nice to have the washer/dryer so that we didn’t have to return home with dirty towels and there was also an iron/ironing board available. I was a little worried about having to take the trash, but the trash site was a short drive and easy to find. Just remember that it’s open 7a-7p. The owner was very easy to work with and answered a few of my questions quickly via email before we arrived. I received my deposit refund only a day after checking out. We hope to return to the area in the fall and we would not hesitate to book this property again!!

We rented this awesome home for a short weekend away. My husband played in the Chance Crawford Softball Tournament that was being held in Roanoke. This house made the hour drive to the ball fields well worth it !!! We loved every minute we were in the house. It was clean and it had way more things stocked in the cabinets than i had expected. The children's toys being there was a great surprise since at last minute we had to end up bringing our two young children, it's nice to know there are family oriented rental homes out there !! We will definitely be keeping the contact information for this location and we will visit agin!

Nestled in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Smith Mountain Lake is developing a reputation as a premier vacation destination. Spread out over three counties in southwestern Virginia, this man-made lake covers 20,600 acres, and has over 500 miles of shoreline. Among the many water activities at Smith Mountain Lake are power boating, canoeing, sailing, parasailing, swimming, fishing, water skiing, wakeboarding, and jet skiing. The Smith Mountain lakefront includes seven public boat launching sites and many public and private marinas.

Other 'off-water' area attractions include 3 public and 2 private golf courses and historic attractions such as Booker T. Washington National Monument and the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Virginia. The picturesque scenery of the area can be enjoyed along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The nearby cities of Roanoke and Lynchburg offer numerous diversions for families including the Science Museum of Western Virginia and Amazement Square.
