Overview

Goodview House Rental Photos and Description

Lakefront 3 BR, 2.5 bath home with large deck and gameroom.

Enjoy your lake vacation in our beautiful 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home. Large, open floorplan combining kitchen, dining, and living room overlooking the lake. A first floor game room with laundry and a half bath, two bedrooms on the main floor, and a loft master with ensuite bath and jetted tub!

Imagine waking up to longwater views and enjoying your morning coffee out on the deck surrounded by peace and tranquility. For breakfast, either fix it your self in the fully stocked kitchen designed specifically so you catch the full view of the lake while cooking on the electric, flat top Jenn Aire stove, or call in a hot breakfast order and pick it up at Diamond Hill General Store, a short 5 minute drive away.

Spend the day fishing off the splinterless Trex dock, sunbathing on the dock's upper level, or swimming in the warm, clear water of the lake. Hop in the canoe or paddleboat and explore the shoreline without all the boat traffic of the main channels. Or if you brought your boat or jet ski, there is an extra slip in the dock just for you! (If you didn't bring a boat or jet ski, rentals are available at the marina about a 20 minute drive away).

Anyone up for a game of ping pong or foosball? Try out the ping pong or foosball tables in the game room for a bit of fun, or to pass the time while doing laundry. (A full size washer and dryer are in the laundry closet of the game room).

Perhaps you'd rather go in to Bedford and explore the little antique shops or head to the marina to people watch and feed the catfish. Either direction, it's about a 20 minute drive.

After watching the sunset, head out to the drive-in (yes, an actual drive-in movie theater!) with a full service diner! Of course, if you'd rather watch a movie at home, select one of ours or grab one from the Red Box at the Food Lion (10 minute drive), pop it in the Blu Ray player to watch it on the large 3D flat panel television while relaxing on the oversized L shaped sofa in the great room!

Winding down for the evening? Take a nice long soak in the jetted tub in the master suite before climbing into the comfy, cozy, king size pillow top mattress bed. You'll drift right off to sleep. And don't worry about the rest of the family, they will have their own queen size pillow top mattress beds to sleep on!

About The Owner

Jeff and Kim live in Virginia and built this house as a vacation home for their family. Both of us have family spread all over the United States and we wanted a place where our children and other family can come once a year to gather and reconnect. Kim is a 'military brat' who learned early on that 'home is where you hang your hat'. Having moved around from state to state and country to country during her childhood and most of her adult life, Kim wanted a permanent place to 'hang her hat', Roxy Park is that place. Jeff originally hails from Chicago and also moved around due to his father's job. He settled in Virginia over 20 years ago and has never looked back. Jeff fell in love with Smith Mountain Lake the first time he visited and convinced Kim that it was the perfect place to build a vacation home. He was right!

Kim is a novice stained glass artist and you will see several pieces of stained glass that she created in our home.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Smith Mountain Lake

Jeff wanted a vacation home at Smith Mountain Lake since the first time he visited the lake. Convincing Kim took a bit longer than he expected, but standing on this lot at dusk and watching the sun set across the water convinced them both that this was 'THE' spot. We originally designed the house on a napkin, then on graph paper, and finally had the plans professionally drawn up so that a builder could make our dream a reality. The home has surpassed our expectations and we never tire of that view.

What makes this house unique

Can't say enough about the view! The all glass front of the house allows us to take full advantage of the view from nearly every room in the house. The oversized dock is a family gathering place and allows us to all enjoy whatever it is we love to do best while being together. It's not uncommon to have sunbathing, fishing, book reading, canoeing, and jet skiing all going on from the dock at the same time!

Beautiful setting at Roxy Park

  • 5 of 5

Jeff and Kim your lake home is very nice and beautiful. It had every thing we wanted in a vacation rental. The views from the living room at sunset were straight out of a magazine. We also enjoyed the dock. It was big enough for both boats . And the upper sun deck was also very comfortable. We would recommend this rental to anyone vacationing at Smith Mountain Lake. Jeff & Kim were quick to respond to any and all questions. We look forward to staying there again in the future. The O'Donnell Family

Fantastic week of family fun

  • 5 of 5

I can't really say much more than what others have already said. The house was great, filled with board games, Xbox, 3D movies, satellite TV, etc... The house was very clean and welcoming. The dock with hammock was so relaxing. We had a great time in the canoe and paddleboat too. Very close to the Diamond Hill Store and about 10 more mins to the bridge so everything was pretty close. The Doner's always kept in touch and always answered the phone when we had a question. They have obviously spent a lot of time and money making this house what it is today. We can't say anything negative and look forward to returning.

Perfect Waterfront Location!

  • 5 of 5

Roxy Park was the perfect vacation destination for our family of 6. After many years of Summer road trips, the family decided this year to take a more relaxed approach and stay in one location. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place. The house was even more beautiful and spacious than the online photos show. This house had everything that we needed for a relaxing time at the lake -- lots of room, great views, peace and quiet, and plenty of activities to keep us entertained. The view from the house is incredible and we spent the majority of our time on either the deck by the house or the party deck by the lake. Whether it was breakfast on the deck, sitting around playing games, or soaking in the sun, there was always a perfect spot. We rented a ski boat from Bridgewater (only 15 minutes by boat) and spent the afternoons tubing with the kids. We were surprised that the boat traffic on this part of the lake was very light and the area was very easy to navigate. Having the extra slip to park the boat in was very convenient and the kids also spent a lot of time in the paddle boat and canoe. We also caught a lot of small fish in the cove adjacent to the house. In the evenings we enjoyed watching movies on the 3D TV -- the selection of movies at the house was more than enough to keep us entertained. We also spent a couple of nights by the fire pit which was also a very nice feature to this house. The kitchen was well furnished and we cooked most of our meals there, although we did find it very convenient to get to restaurants in the Bridgewater area if we did want to eat out. We also found the Bay Roc Marina to be a great place for burgers/fries and was easy to get to by boat. Finally, I was very impressed with the responsiveness of the owners, Jeff and Kim. Both before the trip and during, they were very quick to respond to questions by e-mail and even gave us a call to check on us after a thunderstorm knocked out the power briefly. We were very sad when the time came for us to return home and we hope that we will have the opportunity to stay at Roxy Park again.

Quiet weekend before the summer season

  • 4 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend getaway at the Roxy Park. There wasn't too much commotion because the summer hasn't technically started yet, so it felt like we had the lake to ourselves. We took the canoe out several times, did a little fishing, grilled our meals every night. I could not have asked for a better time. Even the rain didn't bother us because it was cool to see a storm over the lake. Definitely recommend this rental and hope to come back in the near future!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Roxy Park last June. It is a beautiful house! The house was clean and just the right size for us (family of 4). We loved that it is tucked back in the woods, but a close drive to Moneta. We rented a small pontoon boat to explore SML and were able to tie it up to the dock. The kids loved using the paddle boat and the ping pong table in the basement. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone with a smaller group (up to 6) or family. The owners were super nice when we had questions. Just with many houses on SML, that the walk down to the water and dock is a little steep and got a tad slippery after some rain. Awesome vacation! If we go back to SML we would definitely stay at this house again. Thanks!
