Perfect relaxing getaway
The house was beautiful, and the view of the lake from the sunroom could not have been better. The fact that almost everything was on the main level was perfect for my 93 year old grandmother and my mother who had just had a hip replacement. The small step to the sunroom mentioned in a previous review was certainly not an issue. We got decent cell and internet service on our phones, so the lack of WiFi wasn't a problem for us either. Overall it was the perfect place to meet my family for Thanksgiving!
My family rented this for vacation and it was marvelous. The house was perfect and the view was spectacular. Since it was the 4th of July, we sat on the top deck and saw a wonderful fireworks display. The dock is so nice because there is a table under the roof so you can eat there in the heat of the day. Jumping from the top dock into the water was a huge hit with our kids. The kitchen is well stocked and the bedrooms were a nice size. This is a very clean home. If you are bringing small children (we had our 1 year granddaughter) bring gates to put around the railing in the kitchen that surrounds the stairs going down. The railings are wide and she could fit through them. However, it was not a problem because Vicki had a gate there for across the stairway opening and we brought others to put around the railing. Other than that very small problem, we will definitely look into renting this place again. Thanks Vicki for a wonderful time!
Perfect, relaxing, week.
Beautiful home and lake view.
Driving up to the house was beautiful and could not have asked for a better cove. Saw fireworks every night!!! The cove was so active during the weekend and so calm during the week! All of the rooms were exactly as described.The walk to the dock was nice and not too crazy. The water was great, and the marina was so close. The A/C in the house worked great, water pressure was great and the beds were comfortable. SUNSETS WERE AMAZING IN THIS COVE!!! Made it worth every penny!
Kitchen was functional and I would wait to buy groceries until you get here. There was tons available to use but the coffee maker did not work and the fridge is very limited on space. Not that it doesn't get the job done, we just had to be careful about how much food was being eaten.
The UNEXPECTED: The Tiki bar documented in photos was not available for use. Which was kind of a disappointment as most of our time was spent down on the water or the dock. Speaking of the dock, it is a great place to hang out and it was sufficient for docking our boats but please be aware that the lifts ARE NOT INCLUDED. We were not aware of this and even though it all worked out great, we did decide on this place in the end due to the tiki bar and the lift, and we were a little thrown when we arrived to not have accessibility to them. Also, please be aware that the cell reception in the area was not great and there is no wifi in the house.
We completely enjoyed our stay and have even discussed coming back next year! If you stay here, I have no doubt you would enjoy yourself just as much.
Fun, relaxing and so worth it!!
This was our first trip to SML and we are hooked! The scenery is gorgeous and it was so nice to wake up to a cup of coffe and a calm lake each day. The home was spacious and allowed the kids to hang out playing foosball and ping pong while the adults chatted at the table. There were games, like sequence, that quickly became an evening routine.
The dock has a beautiful view and was perfect for fishing or just watching the others do water sports. The kids loved the upper deck to show off their jump techniques while the adults sat around the dock table to relax. We were able to use the kayaks and rented a ski boat while there so we enjoyed tuning, fishing, and seeing the dam.
It was exactly what our family needed - quality time to spend together and decompress from outside distractions. We can't wait to come back!
Dear Brandon and Dyana, Thank you so much for sharing your vacation experience. I absolutely love hearing about the memories with your family and how you enjoyed the lake as much as we do. We look forward to your return.
The house was very spacious and clean. The beds were really comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with all things needed to cook and do food prep. We loved the sunroom and various decks. The dock was amazing and the kids had a great time jumping off the sun deck. The kayaks were an added bonus and used often during our week there. Vicki was wonderful! We will be back next year.
We are located 1/4 mile from the Virginia Dare Marina and the Portside Grill. Anchor's restaurant is 2 miles away at the beginning of Airport Road and Mariners landing is a mile from there.
