Dog and kid friendly home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful home! We had the best time. If you are looking for a dog and kid friendly home you have found it! The fenced in area for dogs is perfect and wonderful that the deck also has a gate so they can hang out. Your kids will love this one! Mine are grown and still had a blast. The converted garage game room is awesome and the tree house is adorable. House is casual and comfortable! Fire pit is wonderful, dock with gazebo is great and the paddle boat was a great addition! Loved the location and beautiful views! Didn't want to leave!

Nice dog-friendly house on SML

  • 4 of 5

Cute modified A-frame w/nice large fenced-in area for dogs, including a doggie septic system. Nicely furnished but no WiFi and very limited cable TV. Beautiful spot on the lake although the next-door neighbors were a bit noisy -- there were 8 cars parked over there with lots of adults, 5 young kids, boat activity, and a dog. Don't know if it's always like that, but it was like that during our stay. Lots to see & do at SML. Would recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review Here Comes the Sun. We've never had any issues with the neighbors. They are year round residents, so maybe they were just having a family event that weekend. I'm sorry they were distracting. The 2 older folks and dog are usually there; they are all very friendly. We are working on getting wifi. The problem here at SML is that Comcast and Verizon (cable and phone) still operate on copper lines. High speed internet requires fiberoptics and the county just doesn't have the lines run yet. The alternatives are Hughes Net or B2XOnline, but both require clear line of sight to a satellite which we simply don't have. Luckily, most renters come to Here Comes The Sun to relax, unwind, and cut the cord to the daily hustle and bustle of work as well as spend time and connect with their family.. Making memories happen at the dinner table, on the lake, around the firepit, in the game room, etc. We find that not having a screen to stare at helps families reconnect to one another and disconnect from their phones, tablets, and laptops. We do hope you will return and stay with us again. If there is anything we can help you with, just let us know.

Great views

  • 4 of 5

I overall enjoyed my stay here but I gave the property 4/5 stars because the house needs some maintenance. The house is cute and we very much enjoyed sitting on the deck and enjoying the view of the lake. My daughter loved the tree house and all the games in the garage (table tennis, darts, foos ball, pop-a-shot, pool). The swimming was pretty good too with the boat dock (although the bottom of the lake is really muddy near the dock; if you want a nice sandy beach, Smith Mountain Lake State Park, which is a 5-minute drive, is MUCH better). What I did not like about the house is that the dryer door would not close, a shelf in the in refrigerator was broken, the couches were a bit worn and noticeable dirty, and both the couches and a rug smelled a bit. Also, you really do need to bring everything (even matches to start a fire in the fire pit).

Exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

Great place for family vacation! House was in great condition, right on the water just steps from the back door. Kids caught a ton of fish right off the dock, jump in the water all day every day. In addition to the nature aspect, the game room and video games didn't disappoint either. Will definitely be a return customer. Couldn't have asked for a better week! Thank you!

Great lakeside vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the property. Perfect location. Exactly as described in overview. Best equipped kitchen we have had. Which covers about 5 years of stays at various properties. The only improvement I would recommend is, ditch the paddle boat and replace with kayak or canoe. We would highly recommend this property.
