About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Smith Mountain Lake

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.

Beautiful home. Perfect for a quiet family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Excellent Girls Getaway Weekend Spot

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful property; perfect location on Smith Mountain Lake

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful place!

  • 4 of 5

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!

Best Family Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property last year and had a wonderful experience. Our family had stayed at a number of places at SML, and it was unanimous that this place was the best! It is in a great location at SML.The house and property, especially the beach, accomodated well our children and grandchildren. So, when it came time to set up our vacation for 2016, I contacted the owner because the week that we wanted was not available. I told him of our interest in case there was a cancellation and the property became available. The property became available, and he offered it to us first. We were ecstatic and said yes! We are very grateful that we were able to have another great family vacation thanks to the Jenkins family. We would highly recommend this property to anyone vacationing at SML!
