About Capts. Spike & Kathy Franceschini
We started 'Spike's Prime Time Fishin'' in late 1988. Spike and I are striper charter captains with two 22ft deck boats. We purchased the triplex to offer fishing charters and/or waterfront vacation rentals to our clients and to anyone who enjoys the water like we do. We tried to put the amenities we liked best in all of the places we have traveled and stayed into our fishing and rental business.
Capts. Spike & Kathy Franceschini purchased this Townhome in 1989
Why Capts. Spike & Kathy Franceschini chose Moneta
We chose our triplex immediately for the magnificient view! We also chose it for close proximity to stores, etc. and Route 122. It is near the Hales Ford Bridge, which gives us close access to Bridgewater Plaza and local marinas. It also puts us halfway on the Roanoke River side of the lake, which gives us excellent access to fishing from the Dam to the headwaters the year round. We have deep water under our docks but also have a small shallow water sandy beach.
What makes this Townhome unique
A golf car is included in your rental. You have shared use of our 5 kayaks, the sandy beach, a canoe, 2 paddle boards, diving board, large water carpet, tubes, noodles, floats and a paddle boat. We have great fishing off of our docks. We are situated on over 2 acres surrounded by large white pines which gives it a 'compound' effect for privacy. There is plenty of grass for putting up volleyball/badminton/croquet sets. A large paved driveway is wonderful for skateboards, bikes, roller blades and sidewalk chalk. We also live on a dead end street and keeps traffic at a minimum, good for walking and biking.

We had a wonderful time! Great meeting place for our family, spacious house that accommodated all of us well, and beautiful views of the lake. Capt. Kathy is easy-going, helpful and very pleasant.
Loved our weekend here, enjoyed the amazing views, the house is big and accommodating with everything you need. The property owners were the best, very good host. We felt very welcomed. The only bad thing was is that our time there wasnt long enough.
It was wonderful we going back again
This was our first trip to Smith Mountain Lake. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The view is magnificent! We will definitely rent Kathy's Place again!
The place was fantastic. It’s got everything you need and more. Pool table, ping pong, water toys, fire pit and wonderful views. Kathy was an excellent host and was close by in case we needed anything. I would definitely recommend this property!
Southern hospitality with a view
Seriously, the pictures really don’t do this property justice! The view from the deck and dining room at Kathy’s Place are simply amazing. The house is close to a 100 feet above the lake elevation and the golf carts are a welcomed feature. The house is very spacious, a bit dated, but spotlessly clean and well appointed. The kitchen was stocked like no other rental unit we’ve ever stayed in, thanks to Spike and Kathy’s restaurant experience. And speaking of Spike and Kathy, just the sweetest couple who also live next door! Anything you need, just ask and they probably have it. Spike has a really nice produce, herb and flower gardens that he generously shares from. We lost power in a huge storm and Kathy was right on the phone asking if we needed flashlights and candles.
Both Spike and Kathy are licensed captains who can put you on some amazing Striped Bass (aka Rockfish) fishing, so make sure you carve out an early morning trip with them during your stay.
Thank you Spike and Kathy for a fabulous week with our family. We will be back!
