This weekend was our first visit to Smith Mountain Lake, and we had a wonderful time. The house was roomy and comfortable for our family with 2 teenagers and pets. We enjoyed the fire pit in the evenings, and the game room with ping pong, darts, foosball, and a pool table made for a lot of family fun. The pier right on the lake was great for early morning fishing. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots, and pans. The broken paddleboat was a disappointment. Otherwise, we had a great time and wished we could have stayed longer.
Beautiful and cute cottage. Perfect little weekend getaway. Paddleboat was broken when we got there, but still enjoyed the lake beauty.
My sister and I decided to change up our normal international summer vacation to stay stateside and just relax this year. This house, SML and the community were just want we needed. The house was super clean, had everything we could ever need and was perfect for the two of us and our dog. The neighborhood is 5 mins from the State Park that offers trails, bike rides, a beach and boat rentals. It was the perfect location. The water was so clean and clear that many days we just jumped in off the dock and floated around. As did the neighbors who were so nice and friendly. Its about a 15 min drive to Moneta which offers lots of restaurants and grocery options. I can't wait to come back and have told all my friends about this hidden gem. Thank you for providing the most relaxing week in a long time.
My husband and I had never been to SML and decided to go there this year to see what it's all about. We found out that the lake is just so beautiful and clear, it is a wonderful place for relaxation and to de-stress. Our cottage was perfect. It had 3 clean bedrooms and 2 clean baths, which is all we needed. We brought our two dogs and the fenced in area provided for them was just perfect. The owner surely had dogs on her mind when she built the fence. It was great. The pier and the gazebo was so nice to sit in and relax in the evenings. The firepit was a hit as well. The owner has done a great job making sure everything was there for us. We definitely would like to return here. Perfect locations; perfect experience. We highly recommend this cottage (just don't book it when we want to visit again!).
The cottage is near the state park, which has a wonderful beach area for the family. We want to rent a pontoon boat the next time we visit. So many things to do at SML. Kids will love this place! Great first visit.
We just wrapped up a one week stay, and we loved every second of our trip! The home is beautiful and decorated perfectly, with great views of the lake. The weather was perfect for the week, and we spent hours relaxing on the water. We will definitely be back!
I stayed with my family for Memorial Day weekend. The property was true to the description -- sunny, good for families, and dog friendly. The house was clean and the water near the dock was clear. However, when we arrived at the check-in time they couple (and their young daughter) was still working on the house. In the downstairs bedroom the ceiling fan stopped working and they were replacing it. The couple was very nice but we found it hard to relax while they were there. Finally after more then three hours my husband offered to help and the fan was installed within ten minutes. Additionally, it would have been nice if the outside patio and paddle boat was clean. We clean the paddle boat but it smelled horrible. Despite the few hiccups we would recommend this property to others.
