The house is also stocked well with supplie listed the only down fall was the skillets they are a little used food tends to stick in them.The dock is big plenty of room for fishing and swimming. The owner is fabulous, answers questions promptly and is very nice. Would definitely recommend this property!

Comfortable historic home!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 7 really enjoyed our time here. The Farmhouse is beautifully old, with gleaming hardwood floors, ceiling fans and spacious rooms. We spent a lot of time on the wonderful covered porch overlooking the lake. The covered boat dock is great - allowing us to spend entire afternoons at the picnic table, paddling our canoe, swimming and sharing family time. (Geese did not get on the dock while we were there . . .) The gas grill is very nice and the kitchen is big enough to accommodate a family that likes to cook - bring your own sharp knives. Please add to the list of small appliances: crock pot, toaster oven, blender. The 0.75 mile loop road with very little traffic is great for an early morning jog or evening walk - we did both! One thing we would suggest is to wash the picture window overlooking the lake from the family room. Owner is very responsive and nice to work with. Altogether a very nice stay.

This home was cute and exceptionally clean. We particularly liked the outdoor porch area overlooking the lake. The water around the dock was deep so it was great for jumping/ diving into the lake. One of the rooms downstairs also had a pull out couch that gave us even more sleeping space than we originally expected. We enjoyed our week very much and were very pleased with the home.

Great view and Quiet

  • 5 of 5


-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.


-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 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!
