                                                                    SML FanCentreville, VA

                                                                    Both the home and location on the lake are wonderful. Our group of 4 kids, 4 adults, and one cat felt at home right away. The layout and furnishings in the house are top notch. We had one bad weather day and were easily entertained in the home theater, playing board games, and air hockey. When the weather was good took full advantage of the lake--swimming, fishing, and boating. We've already booked a return trip for the fall. You won't regret a trip to Waterford Retreat!

                                                                    Dawn S.

                                                                    We enjoyed this house immensely. We are water sport families who feel the dock is as important as the house!. We found the dock space more than adequate. The quiet cove provided safety for swimming, but close enough to the wide open space for wakeboarding, wake surfing, & waterskiing. The house provided sleeping space for all 16 of us!

                                                                    The theater room was a plus for all.

                                                                    The large, fully equipped kitchen and open dining area made meal time enjoyable as well.

                                                                    Thanks for sharing your home.

                                                                    Leslie W.Winston-Salem, NC

                                                                    My family and I have been enjoying an SML vacation for the past 3 years and Waterford Retreat is, hands down, the best rental property we've stayed in yet. It is spacious, clean, well-stocked, just as described on the webpage. The dock is awesome, providing plenty of room for my family of 10+ to run around, swim, eat, and fish. The cove that Waterford retreat is located in is quiet and close to Bridgewater Marina, our other form of entertainment when at SML. I would definitely recommend this property to any family needing plenty of room for a family vacation. It may seem pricey but I've looked at many, many houses that can accomodate a large number of people. Some are cheaper, none are better than Waterford. You get everything you would expect for the price and more!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    TeriHowell, NJ

                                                                    The house was everything we expected and more! It was very clean and well maintained. We cooked in almost every night and found the kitchen to be very well equipped. The location in the quiet cove was perfect, yet close to town. The owners couldn't have been nicer to deal with. There was a slight problem with the a/c which they took care of very quickly. They couldn't have been nicer or more helpful! My husband, myself, my brother, sister-in-law, and six children ages 10, 11, 12, 13,14, and 16 stayed very comfortably in the house. We never felt crowded. The kids loved the home theater and air hockey table (so did the adults)! The lake was very clean and warm. We rented a boat for the week and took the kids tubing, or stayed at the home's dock and swam all day. The beach across the way was a lot of fun for the kids also. The adults went out for dinner one night to a great restaurant called The Landing. It's a bit pricey but the food was absolutely delicious. Well worth the cost!

                                                                    We would absolutely recommend renting this home!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

Everything is clean and well alid out with great views on a quiet and pretty cove. We really loved sitting at the new dock with easy access to the water and your boats. Overall an excellent setting for your vacation on SML.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    The pictures do not do The Waterford Retreat justice. The house is gorgeous and roomy. The media room is fantastic. The location is perfect... a quiet cove where the kids can swim off of the dock with no worries of boats racing through. Yet, just outside the cove, you can ski and tube and do whatever you want. Just 5 minutes away (by boat) to the marina and shops. We had 10 adults, 3 children and 2 babies and never felt crowded. We all agreed that this was the most amazing and relaxing vacation ever and the Waterford Retreat made it possible. We would HIGHLY recommend this property.

                                                                    Owner's Response:
