Peaceful retreat for couples and families

  • 5 of 5

This is a very spacious house with nice updates. My wife and I visited with two other couples and two children. I especially enjoyed schooling my friends on the ping pong table all weekend. The kayaks are a nice touch if you need a little recreation and want to get on the water.

It was a perfect getaway weekend. We will definitely come back.

Stressless vaca!

  • 4 of 5

This home is in a wonderful location and is fully equipped for fun! We have stayed in several rentals at SML and this was our one of our favorites for the view and the provided kayaks. The slope was not too bad to walk up. My dogs loved it too! Perfect getaway for family and friends, and the neighbors are super nice. Would have been five stars if wifi had been unlimited and if linens were provided. Thanks for having us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review of English Retreat. We are so glad that you (and you dogs) enjoyed the house and hope you will return soon. The owners definitely want this to the guest's best vacation ever! Unfortunately, this area does not even offer unlimited WiFi yet. We are hopeful that that will become an option soon!

Quiet cove oasis

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing home away from the crowds nestled in a quiet cove. There is a gorgeous view of Smith Mountain. The home is spacious and the beds are extremely comfortable! Can't wait to get back for another week.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Such a nice house in a quiet, secluded cove just minutes from the main channel. We stayed the week of Labor Day with our 2 dogs and had the most memorable vacation yet. House is very recently updated, and was way too big for what we needed! You an easily have 8-10 people stay here and no one will feel crowded or on top of each other. The basement is huge, has a great ping pong table and the bedroom has its own bathroom, as does the bedroom on the second floor. The house is on a quiet cove, so no boats roaring past all day, actually I don't think we had one boat come through our cove the entire week. The dock has plenty of room for 2 boats under the roof, and another tied to the dock. We rented a pontoon from Smith Mountain Boat Rentals, he was just across the channel from the house, maybe a 15 minute boat ride if taking your time. Highly recommended, this is a great rental, especially since its pet friendly!!!

Beautifully maintained and well stocked home!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home made for an incredible get away! The house is gorgeous: very spacious, fully stocked kitchen, 4 beautifully decorated bedrooms, fantastic updated bathrooms, and an unbelievable basement play area for kids (big and small)! The kids loved the air hockey, ping pong and wide open game space in the basement almost as much as they did the incredible view of the lake and large dock! We spent most of our time on the dock: jumping, diving, kayaking, floating on rafts and practicing yoga:). An amazing added perk was that we were able to bring our dog, who LOVED to explore the spacious yard and hang on the dock with us! Dinner on the upper deck with the gorgeous view, and a cocktail on the outdoor swing watching the sun set was perfection. This well maintained house is the perfect setting for an amazing vacation!
