Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Terrific last minute Memorial Day weekend getaway. The house was immaculate and the lot was better than advertised. The back porch with gates at each entry point was perfect for relaxing with our dog. We were able to swim and fish right from the dock and the neighbors were extremely friendly. We are looking forward to returning! Thank you.

Easy to check in and out. Kitchen has everything you would need for cooking. Rooms are good sized and not cramped. Nice big porch overlooking the lake, with table and chairs for dining. A very comfortable house.

Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented a house in the Penhook area because we were looking for a lake house to purchase (in Penhook). We had never been to Smith Mountain Lake, but had heard nothing but greats things. Penhook is definitely the quiet side. The rental home was quaint and comfortable. The wrap around porch was perfect for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. Also, the house is pet friendly, so our dog was contained to the porch, but had alot of area to run around. The house has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths in the living spaces. We discovered another bathroom in the basement shortly before departing. Overall, a comfortable house, but off the beaten path. Not bad if you are looking for serious silence, but not too far with a 25 mins drive to activities. Would be a great house for a group of friends for a week at the lake. Thanks for sharing!

Really nice place. Great view, clean, well stocked

  • 5 of 5

This was a really nice place to stay. Clean, cozy, very nicely decorated. We were impressed on how well stocked the kitchen was with a kettle, utensils, bowls, dishes, baskets.. Full size refrigerator and stove. All very nice. Really is the size of a small house. We especially liked the huge wrap around counter in the kitchen and the wrap around deck with gates. Every place we have rented has never had a way to contain our four legged friends. We appreciated that. Just a minor note to all cabin owners, perhaps some extra pantry space to store dry foods, and an extra dresser or 2 in the bedrooms. Not intended to be critical because this truly was a great place to stay at and we hope to come back again. Thank you for letting us stay there.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the comments. After reading your comments, we cleared out a couple of cabinets in the kitchen for food storage. We also have added a dresser to each of the bedrooms. Hopefully these changes will make future guest's stays more enjoyable. Your feedback was appreciated.

Awesome!! Better than we imagined!

  • 5 of 5

A quiet place was a phenomenal get away and provided everything we needed and more! We were in town for a wedding and had a wonderful time staying in the lovely home in between the wedding festivities! The owners went above be beyond to show their hospitality. We plan to come back!
