After enjoying Smith Mountain Lake for the last 20 years, with friends and family, we finally decided to build the home that would create cherished memories for our family.
The Owner purchased this house in 2006
In 2006 we began the task of finding a location where we could build not just a house at the lake, but a home where we could also build cherished family memories for our family, friends and other families like ours that may choose to rent our lake home. After many days of searching by boat, we felt we had found what was perfect for our family. Since the lot had such a gradual slope, our young children could easily toddle into the water or simply play sitting at the edge attended by a loving parent. The refreshing late afternoon breeze, gradually sloping lot, sandy beach, and quiet cozy swimming hole were just what we were looking for. The proximity to the Bedford County State Park, just 3 miles away was another big perk for our family. The State Park, has become a great place to explore nature with plentiful hiking & biking trails, and is also the the location of the SML Triathalon, Fall Festival and July 4th Fireworks launch. We also have enjoyed exploring the The SML Damn (check web for program times), The Lynchburg Children's Museum and the Pisgah National Forest. By water the house is located betweeen bouys R-11 and R-12 on the north side of the lake.
"Everyone and their families got togehter here for our 18-YEAR REUNION! We loved the house and the layout. The firepit was awesome! We had a Great time!"
This was one of the best trips I've ever taken. There were 6 of us, and we spent the week of New Year's at this house on the lake. The weather kept up with us, and we were able to take out the kayaks and explore, we went on a beautiful hike, and thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities of the house. The construction on this home is immaculate, so much thought was put into every corner of the house, and we were able to spread ourselves out and still feel like we were all close together. The kitchen is so well equipped that we realized we overpacked when we drove down. Some people in our group spent a lot of time in the basement where they have a big gaming area, and that was really fun. We enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit on some of the colder nights, and that was such a welcome change. Truly, this is one vacation getaway I would recommend over and over again. It's so perfectly tucked away in the forest, the stars were so incredibly clear at night, and we were not left wanting for anything the entire time we were there. Thank you so much to the hosts for being so gracious and letting us in your home, we do hope we are able to stay with you again!
This was the perfect location for my family. Beautiful home with plenty of space. I had my family along with my sister's family and our parents totaling 6 adults and 4 kids under the age of 11. The home was family friendly and great for those who want to unplug from the world. Owner was very responsive and we had no issues during the trip. We plan on returning next year.
I rented this house for 8 girls for an extended weekend getaway. We had a great time at this property which offered all we needed for a relaxing weekend. We happened upon a winery on the way to the grocery store which was a nice little surprise. The only thing that would have made the weekend better was if a pontoon boat picked us up by the dock for a tour of the lake....which I know is asking a lot. :-)
Would recommend this house to anyone!
Perfect house for our large family plus spouses and grandkids to stay and enjoy Smith Mtn Lake! Owner was pleasant and helpful to work with- highly recommend!
We had gathered for an annual friends weekend and were looking for something on the water; this house exceed our expectations. Every room is private and quiet (didn't matter which room you had, you never heard anything once your door was shut). Also, the pictures for this property do not do it justice. The house is beautifully furnished and has water views from most of the bedrooms. The landscaping is perfect (even though you are close to the other properties in the cove, you can't see them due to the fantastic landscape design). We rented a pontoon boat for a few days and this property was in a perfect location for exploring Smith Mountain Lake. The State Park is right around the corner; fun bars are about 30 minutes away by boat; and there are tons of private coves (no houses, just nature) to drop anchor and relax.
The pictures on this site do not do this place justice! It is a lovely home. My only suggestion would be to look into your cleaning company. While the house was surface cleaned and very neat and tidy, we noticed areas of more deep cleaning that should be done. Such as the moldings in the bathroom and under the couches. When we cleaned I moved the couches and did some vacuuming and could tell that had not been done in quite some time. However, with that said, we loved the home, the property and the access to water. The cool breeze in the afternoons was amazing (albeit sometimes made for tricky docking of the pontoon!). We liked it so much we are booked for next year!
