Moneta Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, two full baths, sleeps 8

Please note: Due to cleaning schedules our cottage rents from Sunday to Sunday in season. You must supply or rent your own sheets, towels, and soaps.

Our cottage is furnished to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. The media package is highlighted by a 60 inch flat screen HD TV, DVR, stereo and satellite WIFI internet (please note that internet downloading is limited by the satellite technology).

The ranch-style cottage features a great room with a living room, a dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances (the oven is not full-size) and a gorgeous view of the lake. Sliding glass doors from the kitchen exit onto a deck with lake views, table and chairs, and a gas grill. The living room has a gas heater/fireplace.

The master bedroom has a queen bed, 55 inch TV, walk-in closet, and private master bath with a large ceramic tile shower. The second bedroom also has a queen bed, tv, with a large closet and full bath in the hall. The third bedroom has two sets of bunks and a large closet. The cottage is equipped with a full size washer and dryer.

A large screened porch on the lake side of the house gives 180 degrees of lake view.

There are two docks, one for boats and fishing and a floater for swimming and canoe/kayak launching. We supply a canoe, paddles, and life jackets (please use at your own risk). Please avoid dragging the canoe over the rocks but rather launch it from the dock, so that the bottom is not damaged. There is a fire pit/ring (we do not supply wood, but bundles can be purchased at the near-by White House Market).

Swimming off our lake-front is ideal, with clear no-wake water and minimal interference from waves, making it fun for younger children and adults.

Great Property!!

  • 5 of 5

Great Place!!! We were looking for a place for a quiet get-away for a long weekend, and we found it. The owners are responsive in a timely manner to any questions that we had. The Fall is beautiful here at Smith Mountain Lake and this property was perfect. The fire pit near the lake was peaceful on a semi-chilly evening. We were able to fish off the dock at the house, and the boat launch was nearby. Within a 15 minute drive is "Downtown Moneta" with restaurants, bars and stores, and the state park is within minutes. There are several wineries nearby that are also worth the visit. The house is well equipped with everything that we needed. I feel certain we will be back in the future!!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We live about an hour away , so this offered a great escape for us without a long drive. We brought our dog who was in heaven just hanging out on the dock during the day in the sun. Very charming place with everything you would need for a weekend getaway. Highly recommended!

Fabulous lake house with all comforts of home

  • 4 of 5

My family of 4 and our good friends (another family of 4) spent 3 nights at this lovely lake home in October 2016. We all wish we could have stayed longer.

PROS:

* beautiful home, perfect for 4 adults and 4 kids

* well stocked kitchen

* beautiful screened in back porch perfect for morning coffee and evening cocktails

* beautiful dock and backyard on lake (we brought our own boat, too)

* lots of bluegill to catch right off the dock (Kids loved that!)

* firepit with stocked wood pile; canoe was put to use, too.

* wifi (rained for 1.5 days so kids needed some electronic time)

* plenty of seating in the living room

* lots of board games offered at the home

* Very clean, well maintained

* Very nice owners

CONS: hot water didn't last long (a shower + dishwasher and hot water was gone)

Additionally, I want to publicly say that the owners of this house couldn't have been more kind. My family traveled to SML a day early as we were evacuating from Hurricane Matthew. While we found a hotel room near the lake, the owners offered to let us stay with them the first night, even though they were still at the house. They made sure the house was clean for us the next day, knowing we'd come in earlier than expected, were friendly to our plight of having to bring our dogs when we didn't plan to, and even offered to let us stay longer if we had any trouble getting home, due to hurricane damage (we didn't). We all really appreciated their kindness!

Looking forward to our next trip back there!

Perfect first family stay at sml.

  • 5 of 5

Home was perfect for us 6 adults and 2 children. The location on the cove is breathtaking, especially early morning and at dusk. We celebrated 3 birthdays with 3 generations! All amenities exactly as described. Very clean, up to date, quiet, and easy to relax in. Very kid friendly as well. We would highly recommend this place to others, though hope to reserve it again next year for a longer stay! We lucked out with perfect weather as well!

We absolutely love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage at Smith Mountain Lake has become our "go to" spot for vacation. This was our 5th year staying at the cottage and the 4th year under the current owners. The cottage was great the first year but every year since, Robert and Elizabeth have made improvements. This year it was new living room furniture that allows for more sitting space (although I do miss the blue comfortable couch ;-), Huge flat screen TV, new dock furniture and a new grill.

We spend most of our time on the dock or on the lake. The dock is spacious enough to allow for the docking of a good size boat and plenty of room for our Labrador retrievers to run, jump and swim while the humans lounge on the dock furniture. For Jet skis there is also a smaller floating dock as well that is easy to access.

The location of the cottage is on a quiet cove where it is safe to swim but also located near the center of SML where you can easily take boat rides up the Roanoke or Blackwater Rivers, or over to the dam. Also nearby are great areas to tube, wake-board or ski.

When not at the dock and water, we spend a lot of time on the screened in porch that gives you a great view of the cove. The porch is also where we eat most of our meals and relax out of the sun. For those hot summer days with no breeze, I do recommend bringing a couple of fans to help stay cool on the porch. But if there is a breeze, they are not needed since all 3 sides of the porch have screens.

Both Robert and Elizabeth are great to deal with and quick to answer any questions we have ever had.

We plan on many returns in the years to come.

One of the best vacations I can remember!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Smith Mountain Lake, and using Home Away to find a vacation rental home. The home we rented not only was as described, but exceeded our expectations. The home was very comfortable, clean, and quiet! The view of the lake from the very large screened in porch was wonderful. The house has two docks, one floating dock and one fixed. We brought our waverunners, so the floating dock was great for that, and our boarder collie loved dock diving from the high dock. The lake was wonderful, and it seemed that we had the entire lake to ourselves. The kitchen is well appointed with anything you need for cooking or grilling. The owners of the home were in contact with us to make sure all was ok with the house. Overall, great home, great vacation.
