About Laura Hochstein

Bryan and Laura Hochstein live in Greensboro, NC, with 3 young children. Bryan grew up in the NE and Laura in the South - Smith Mountain Lake offers the best of both worlds in one place. We hope to retire there one day.

Laura Hochstein purchased this house in 2010

Why Laura Hochstein chose Smith Mountain Lake

We have been visiting SML since 2000. We fell in love immediately and quickly bought our own home. After several years of enjoying the lake, we invested in this property so we can help others enjoy it too! You will marvel at the crystal clear water and the beautiful landscape - both around the lake and in the surround area.

What makes this house unique

It is hard to find a home this size. It is great for large family and friend gatherings and celebrations. It also offers privacy for part of the group, with the separate basement apartment, which includes all the amenities of any home. The cove offers privacy and peace. There are wooded areas surrounding the home. The dock offers lots of space to lounge, fish or get ready for boating. 2 paddleboards available for rental onsite; they have detachable seats so that they can be converted to kayaks.

Fantastic family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed spending time on the fabulous dock--fishing, boating, kayaking, and paddle boarding kept everyone busy and happy. We loved our visits from the deer, who we could see from the deck and kitchen window. The two levels in the house provided plenty of room. The downstairs with its separate entrance was nice for the younger folks who wanted to stay up a little later. We look forward to returning to Hatcher Creek Retreat next year.

Perfect relaxing weekend with friends!

  • 5 of 5

My husband (well, then fiancé) and I rented Hatcher Creek Retreat for 3 nights over the weekend of our wedding on Smith Mountain Lake and stayed there with some very close friends. The house was the perfect size for the 9 of us. Everyone spent most of their time on the nice-sized dock or back porch enjoying the beautiful view. The house was very clean and the owners pleasant and easy to reach. Would definitely recommend!

Great stay with family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

I can't imagine a better way to enjoy the lake. This was the perfect house for our crew (six adults and six kids). A great view from the house was only bettered by the view from the dock. We boated, fished, paddle boarded, but most of all just relaxed and had a good time. We liked our stay so much we're already booked for next year. Thanks for a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend.

Great House and Great Value

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hatcher Creek for a 3-day Memorial Day weekend and came with two other families for a total of 12 people. The house was plenty big enough and the family who cam with a new-born loved the lower level dedicated 2-bdrm apartment for a little added privacy. The dock was perfect for the kids to play on and they never got bored. Concerning the price, I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a better value on SML. Most 5 or 6 bdrm homes are considerably more expensive.

Worth the Wait!!!

  • 4 of 5

Starting planning an extended family vacation last Jan. and it all came together at Hatcher Creek. We had a fabulous time at Smith Mountain Lake and at Hatcher Creek we wanted for very little. Accommodations were more than we had hoped for. We spent a lot of time on the dock, rented a pontoon boat, took in some local attractions but enjoyed the lake front dock so much most of our time was spent swimming there or just relaxing taking it all in. Hatcher Creek accommodated our large family, we never felt all over each other. Would very much consider spending another vacation here.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wow! How cool is it to have a "lake house" in a quiet secluded area of the lake, AND be close enough to attend a NASCAR race?? My wife and I decided to use this house for our 1yr anniversary weekend with two trips to Martisnville for the Camping World Truck and Sprint Cup race. We had a great time relaxing (reading and cooking out) on the deck with a view of the lake. The updated kitchen and appliances and DIRECTV made for a great place to cook, dine and keep up with the weekend's sports. While it is secluded, it is still just minutes to "civilization", grocery and entertainment. We had a great time and plan to visit again next year!
