Great lake getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Property manager, property and pool were really nice. Newer property in great shape is a perfect quiet little getaway and yet close to the lake to go play.

Nice place in the country

  • 5 of 5

We live in a condo so getting away in the country in a single family home was just right. The kitchen was great and so was the screened in porch. Having a pool just down the hill was great. The washer and dryer was a huge plus because we have a 9 month old.

They did have some kitchen utensils, but not any regular water glasses(just wine glasses and coffee mugs) I would recommend they add water glasses and also a DVD player for the living room. They do have Direct TV which is great.

I would definitely recommend for anyone looking to get away from it all. Smith Mountain Lake and Bedford are close by with a lot of fun things for families to do.

Moneta vacation

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I brought our 4 children- ages 17,15,11,&9 for a week long stay in mid-July. Had such a great time! House was great- back porch provided the perfect quiet spot for relaxing with my morning coffee & a book. Owners were friendly and attentive. We enjoyed Smith Mt. Lake Park, downtown Moneta, & the Mayberry drive-in while in the area. Plenty to do to keep our family entertained while still feeling away from it all & being able to relax.

Only suggestions would be to add more pots and pans in kitchen & install washer and dryer in house. It was a bit of an inconvenience to have to pay to use washer & dryer and to lug clothes back and forth from office to do laundry. A firepit in yard would have been nice too.

Overall- a very nice place to stay. Would love to come back & enjoy this brand new home again! Have already recommended it to friends.

July 4th Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just return from our 3 night weekend getaway over the July 4th holiday. This house was absolutely charming, quiet, and relaxing. Coming all the way from DC, it was the perfect place to get away from the traffic and stress of the city, unwind, and soak in the fresh air. The house was spotlessly clean, the bed was turned down, the furniture is comfy, the rocking chairs on the front porch were perfect for unwinding, and the screened-in porch made a great place to cook-out without getting eaten-up by bugs. It was an easy 15 mintue drive to Smith Mountain Lake state park. There is a diner/drive-in movie theater just up the road and we saw the best fireworks show at Saunders Point.

The owners are very friendly, helpful, and make one of the most delicious pizzas we have ever had. He even delivered it to our door. I recommend the "everything" pizza which he makes fresh. Since this is a brand new house, it feels well taken care of; however, the only suggestion I would make is that there should be a few more kitched utensils such as a wine opener, a baking sheet, and additional pot, etc. Otherwise, this house is perfect! We would highly recommend anyone who wants to have a relaxing vacation in the peaceful terrain of Smith Mountain Lake to stay at Sweetwater. You won't be disappointed. We retuned home feeling totally relaxed a rejuvenated.

We definitely hope to return again sometime in the future. Best of luck to the owners!
