Great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall it was outstanding. Prompt response from the owner for answering questions. Clean and comfortable inside. Enjoyed the horseshoe pits. The dock made it easy to launch the canoe and also for docking the rented pontoon boat.

The downstair ground floor bedrooms were a little musty at first, otherwise all was fine.

The property needs a thorough cleaning inside and out. The owner needs to invest back into property.

Reviews and pictures can be deceiving. This is a honest review, i doubt that it will be published. When you open the front door, you are greeted with a foul musty odor which is 2x has bad downstairs. When you have been on the road for along time, you look for a bathroom. No toilet paper in either one, how rude. Thank goodness there are napkins in the truck. You start exploring the house and find the best part, the screened in patio. It is a struggle to open and close the sliding door. As it starts to get dark you wished you had a road map to find the light switches. Morning comes and you go down to the dock. The canoe is full of water. The paddle boat is full of water and beer bottles. It is nasty dirty and the bimini top is rotten and shredded. We were really looking forward to using it, one of our highlights.The jacuzzi reeked of strong chlorine, i would not put my body in it. The wall of windows cannot be seen through when it rains. They sweat between the double pains and the condensation makes it nearly impossible to see out. The downstairs bathroom window is coated with green mold. The refrigerator is old and the door seal leaks, make sure to shut the door firmly. We give it two stars because of the nice views from the patio and SML is wonderful.

Owner's Response: Hi Ron, Sorry you did not enjoy your stay. VRBO and HomeAway publish every review of the property so despite your misleading assertions to the contrary, all of the other reviews are accurate and with 5 star reviews both right before and after your stay, yours should be the one viewed as perhaps being a misleading aberation. Your rental agreement clearly states that you need to bring your own consumables which includes toilet paper. 99.99% of the time that supply just rolls over between renters, sorry you managed to apparently follow the .01% that took the remainder of the roll with with. Sounds like you are complaining that the hot tub was cleaned and serviced before your arrival, I think we will go ahead and keep chlorine in it since most of the guests prefer to have the water sanitary. Unless I am reading your review wrong, sounds like any issues with the fridge were resolved by your actually closing the door The rest of your issues appear to be the result of it raining while you are there. While I would prefer people turn the boats over after use, that's not always done and so it possible you might need to tip them and get the water out. You are the first to not be able to manage that but I would have been happy to send someone over to do it for you. Similarly, I should be expected that if its 100 degrees and raining outside and 65 with the AC blowing inside that there may be some condensation outside on any window from the temperature variant, again, you are the first to ever complain about the view which is EXACTLY as pictured as is everything else related to the house. As a multitude of other reviews indicate I try to be extremely responsive to my guests needs, had you contacted me at all during your stay I am certain any your minor concerns could have been easily addressed.

Awesome Lake House

  • 5 of 5

House was MUCH bigger than expected, very clean, very well stocked with kitchen supplies, games for kids, etc. etc. etc. Had a question for owner regarding hot tub during stay and he responded very promptly. Would highly recommend this lake house for a wonderful stay on Smith Mountain Lake. Location was perfect.

Very nice house

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for the week and had a wonderful time. The house has lots of space and accommodations for our whole family, 7 of us including 3 kids were very comfortable. There are 2 family room spaces and the kitchen was very well stocked- it had everything we needed to make dinner every night. The hot tub was awesome and fit 5 of us. The dock was big and has a great slide for the kids. The location of this house was in a nice cove but also close to shopping and restaurants. The only watch out is the path down to the dock is a little rough, we were all fine but if you have someone with mobility issues they would not be able to make it down the path. We would definitely rent again.
