Great view and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Pros:

-Great quiet location

-Great view

-Owner quickly responds to any questions.

-Grill was brand new which is something you don't see a lot at rental properties.

-I could sit on the deck all day, nice and quiet.

-Marinas are close by by boat, (5m by boat, ~20m to drive)

-There's plenty of parking.

Cons:

-The road the house is on has two bad dips that are hard to see and there's no warning, be sure to drive slow

-The geese like using the dock as a bathroom, but not sure what you can do about that

Great Price for Smith Mountain Lake!

  • 4 of 5

We were very glad we found this house. It has a wonderful boat dock where you can tie up a rental, and the kids loved swimming there. The house is old...it is an old farmhouse after all. The outside appearance is beautiful. It has a large yard, and we didn't feel closed in. The deck has a beautiful view with lots of chairs and a grill. Inside, it has four large bedrooms! Plenty of linens and towels are available. There is a family room that has a Foosball table, and the family really, really enjoyed playing it! It has a large living room that has a picture window view of the deck, and beyond is the lake and boat dock. Very nice! A fully stocked kitchen, meaning all dishes, silverware, bowls, pans, etc. Microwave button was broken, but it worked. Two farm tables for dining, so plenty of seating for all. No dishwasher, but we brought paper and plastic so no worry there. A few conveniences were missing, but we didn't mind too much. Because it is an old farmhouse, there is only one outlet in each room. Bring an extension cord if you want to set up a laptop. The bathrooms (two) are located only on the first floor. The three bedrooms upstairs have no bathroom so you have to come down the stairs to make a midnight run. The floors creak, and they have ceramics and glass on top of furnishing that rattle loudly when someone walks by. The front porch light was out, and the bathroom light. Someone promptly delivered two bulbs, but one of them was no good, so we just left the front porch light out. No Wifi, but if you have a mobile hotspot, that is no worry. Also, if you are going to rent a boat, make sure you get it from one of the BridgeWater Marinas. For example, this house is located on the "North" end of the lake. Don't rent from the "South" end of the lake. That is about 21 miles away and those boat rental places won't let you take your rental north of the bridge. There are several rental places located at the bridge. We were able to make the 15 minute trip with our Pontoon and dock at the old Farmhouse. It was great! This house was a good value, and we are glad we found it. If you want all modern conveniences, you will pay much more. Would I recommend it? Yes! It was a beautiful home, nice location, and fit the bill for our large family! Thanks!

Great Location for young families!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying at the Farm House. The location was exactly what we were looking for and the house was the perfect size for all 10 of us. The lake access was ideal for young children and the meadow was a nice area for all of us to run around. A couple of tips though...the kitchen was not "fully" stocked. It had the essentials (pots and pans, a few mixing spoons, a hand mixer and coffee mugs) but it didn't have many sharp cutting knives, no pot holders, only one large serving bowl, and no measuring cups. It did have a crocpot which is helpful. Other than that the house was perfect for our vacation. Plenty of linens, nice back porch with comfortable furniture, and a beautiful dock. Can't wait to return to the Farm House. Thanks for your hospitality!!
