Overview

About the property

3 Bdr, 3FB, private, waterfront home with over 300' of shoreline

The Sweet Retreat is a very private, totally renovated 3 bedroom, 3 full bath home with a gradually sloping lot to 312' of waterfront and a bonus, cozy(small) beach area. This beautifully decorated home includes a large living area with a gas fireplace, a large flat screen TV, and plenty of seating for friends and family. A large dining area has a custom dining table made from reclaimed lumber from a pre-1880 barn and is large enough to seat 10 adults comfortably with a combination of benchs and chairs. A fully stocked, updated kitchen features stainless appliances, granite countertops and a custom, natural slab wood bar. All three comfy bedrooms include new mattresses. The master suite, with a gorgeous lake view includes a large master bath with a walk--in shower and double bowl, granite-topped vanity. A full size washer and dryer is located on the main floor. The large sunroom finishes off the main living area with a sectional sofa and incredible views of both the lake and woods.

Outside is where you will want to stay after you step out onto the deck that runs the width of the home, complete with a dining area and plenty of seating. You will have plenty of peace and quiet as you enjoy the wide water view. A large open dock is just a short walk down a gradual slope. Deep water will make it easy to tie your boat up to the floater. And you don't have to be worried about boat traffic being too close to swimming areas. Just a few steps away is a fire pit just waiting to make both memories and s'mores. You can also enjoy a game of cornhole on a nice flat area of lawn. There is plenty of parking and an area to park a boat trailer.

This is an extremely private location at the end of a cul-de-sac with wide water views. The Sweet Retreat won't disappoint you!

About Mary Lou Holtzman

Mary Lou and her husband purchased the Sweet Retreat in December 2014 as a family retreat and rental property. We currently live in Elizabethtown, PA where both work for a chocolate company. We love being able to take long weekend trips down to the lake to enjoy all that the area has to offer. We look forward to making memories with family and friends and wish the same for all who stay at the Sweet Retreat.

Mary Lou Holtzman purchased this house in 2014

Why Mary Lou Holtzman chose Smith Mountain Lake

We chose this property for the spectacular water view. Just step out onto the deck and you can see why we fell in love with and ultimately purchased this property. The neighborhood is quiet and very private.

What makes this house unique

The Sweet Retreat is located at a more peaceful end of the lake in a large open cove. However, it won't take you long to reach the big open water if that is what you like. Everything you need is just a short drive away - groceries, entertainment, restaurants.

Relaxing and enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during our spring break and couldn't have chosen a better place.The house is comfortable and beautifully decorated and we loved just hanging out inside, enjoying the beautiful views of the lake and the woods, including the deer who would visit every day. There was also plenty to do outside - we fished, hiked, rented a pontoon boat and used the kayaks. We also visited shops and restaurants nearby. We had a fantastic time!

Spring Break at the Sweet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My mom, sisters and I stayed at the Sweet Retreat during spring break this year and we could not have enjoyed our time more! Mary Lou is not only an amazing hostess, but she thought of every detail when decorating and furnishing her lake home. The kayaks were used every day and we gathered around the fire pit at night. I highly recommend!

Spoiled Rotten

  • 5 of 5

The view alone warrants 5 stars but the home and Mary Lou really put things over the edge. Upon arrival I felt like I was at home and found all the ammenities of my house and more there. My friends and I enjoyed ourselves so much we literally did not leave the house the entire weekend. The decor and setting made you want to pour up a glass of something cold and just take it all in! Our host was very gracious and didn't miss a beat with communication. Can't wait to go back with the gang next year!

Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing stay at Sweet Retreat! Mary Lou has really thought of everything. The house decor is precious! We arrived to a clean, spacious home. Her home is in the perfect location- quiet but close enough to town for dinner and groceries. We will definitely be visiting again soon! Thank you!!
