About Roslyn Foreman

My husband and I love the outdoors and built Covered Porches in 2004 with that in mind. Its porches and covered dock allow us to relax and enjoy being outside even when it rains. We have been responsive to the needs and wants of our guests and have made improvements, major and minor, each year. We hope you enjoy Covered Porches as much as we do. We manage our vacation home rental so providing excellent customer service is our top priority. If you need assistance with boat rentals, sightseeing excursions, or anything else, please ask.

Roslyn Foreman purchased this house in 2004

Why Roslyn Foreman chose Smith Mountain Lake

Covered Porches is located on the East side of the lake and we chose this area because of the privacy, large lot and beautiful sunset views. It's tucked in a cove great for swimming yet has a wide water view which opens up into the Roanoke channel. Directly across the lake is Bernard's Landing . The State Park is 2.5 miles from our home.

What makes this house unique

The porches are wonderful with their ceiling fans and comfortable chairs. The dock is covered so that when it rains or is too hot, we can still enjoy being outside. There are ceiling fans and comfortable chairs on the porches as well as the dock.

The fireplace off the Master bedroom is perfect for those cool evenings. A fire pit is available. 1/2 mile from our home is Parkway Marina where boat rentals are available. Smith Mountain Lake State Park is 2.5 miles from our home, great for hiking, playground for kids.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a truly wonderful week enjoying your beautiful lakefront house. Art and architecture made it a pleasure to be in, and my grandchildren were thrilled with their newfound independence, paddling the canoes from point to point.

We fished, swam, visited the dam and visitor center, the state park, but mostly stayed put on the dock and marveled at the perfect weather. The house is so comfortable and well appointed, with plenty of space to gather or have privacy. Grandchildren voted it the best vacation ever. After they all left on Friday, I had a day to relax, do some writing, and wind down before the trip home.



Thank you for making your home available to us.

This was our 5th year staying at Covered Porches! Once again the house worked out perfectly. Everyone in our party enjoyed the comfortable accommodations and the gorgeous views of the lake. We will be back again next year.

We love Covered Porches!

  • 5 of 5

This was the third summer our family stayed at Smith Mountain Lake. We loved Covered Porches - the house was well-kept, well-stocked and beautifully situated on the lake. Thank you Roslyn for sharing your lovely home with us.

Great views with a home that works for our entire family

  • 5 of 5

Situated with a western view on a small cove, Covered Porches was a wonderful choice for our multigenerational family. The small beach worked great for our three grandchildren between the ages of 3 1/2 and 11 months. Beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. We also enjoyed the dock, canoe, kayak and of course the covered porches. We'll be back!

Great House at Smith Mountain Lake

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful 5 bedroom home with a wonderful view of the lake. You also get a small beach area to walk right into the lake. It was great with my 3 years old grandson with me. He loved to play there. The dock is great with the ceiling fans and chairs. I could sit there all day.

The house was very comfortable and it was loaded with extras. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking to stay at Smith Mountain Lake.
