Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

My four day stay was not long enough to enjoy all that there is to do in the home aswell as in the area. There was many water activites to do on the lake,great restaurants nearby and a ton of nice people. The home was so nice it was better then stayin in an 5 star hotel, from the game room to the kitchen and the bedrooms was all very nice. The best stay I had anywhere. I cant wait to get back there.

Very Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

There were four adults, one pre-schooler and 2 babies on our trip. We had a great time! One day it was cloudy so we went to play mini-golf and then went to the Bridgewater Marina for fish feeding. The following day we spent the day at the state park beach. Smith Mountain Lake is gorgeous and the water is so clear. The house was remote and so relaxing. We actually brought a telescope and enjoyed some star gazing! I felt very relaxed the entire time I was there. The pre-schooler also loved the slot machines he was up there all the time playing.

Great time at a great home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and your home was beautiful. The furniture was so nice, the Man Cave was great, and everything was in order and well equipped for cooking great meals and spending family time. Having the boat ramp close by was nice too. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Beautiful like-new house

  • 5 of 5

This house has been kept in perfect condition. The kitchen is modern. The upstairs man cave has a large screen TV and very comfortable recliner sofa. It is a short drive to the neighborhood pool, boat launch and tennis courts. If you don't have to have a waterfront house you won't be disappointed staying here.

A slice of Heaven in Va.

  • 5 of 5

I have never booked a vacation like this before. My kids and I have always went to the beach. This year I decided that we would try something different. I booked this house and upon arriving we were greeted by the very nice and informative property manager.The house looks just like the pictures show. Very clean and comfortable.This truly was the most relaxing vacation I have had in 30 years. We went horse back riding, golfing, swimming and boating and fishing.One day we went to natural bridge and the caverns. Then at the end of the day we would relax have dinner and then sit on the front porch and watch the wild life or go up stairs to our private movie theater or play the slots in our private game room. We plan on visiting and renting this house again next year and more than likely for many more years to come.Truly the best most relaxing vacation I have ever had.

We loved it, will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This property is everything the pictures and description portray and more. It is a beautiful house in a very peaceful setting and everything we needed was provided other than food and drinks of course. There are several good restaurants in the area and also grocery stores for grabbing some food to eat at the house. We didn't use the boat ramp as we don't have a boat but did use the community pool one day and enjoyed it. We also went to the State Park Beach, rented a boat at Bridgewater Rentals, and one day took the scenic drive out to Virginia Safari Expedition which was a blast. At night we enjoyed watching movies on the upstairs TV in the very comfortable reclining couch. The upstairs is on a separate cooling system too which kept us comfortable. The owner and property manager were both very friendly, responsive and accommodating. We had a great time and can't wait to go back!
