About Lori Y Sirois
Frank and I live in Amherst Va. We have 5 children and 3 grandchildren. Life is busy locally which is why we share our home with others. We love Kerr Lake. This lake is not overcrowded and is so peaceful and beautiful. We are from a small town and love the small town feel of Clarksville. We hope you have as many precious memories as we have had in our sweet little cottage.
Lori Y Sirois purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Lori Y Sirois chose Merifield Acres
We chose this property because of the location. Merifield is in our opinion THE BEST neighborhood. All of the roads connect and are paved so it's ideal for walking, biking, running. We NEVER lose water. Our cove is so close to the main channel so our dock is NEVER on the ground. We looked @ many properties for a solid year and we saw many grander houses but many docks on the ground. Merifield is safe and family friendly. The neighbors keep an eye out on our property when we are not there. We live so much closer to Smith Mountain Lake but Kerr Lake is NEVER crowded and we anchor down and swim in the main channel most of the time. The people are friendly and we could not have chosen a better place to spend time away from our farm.
What makes this Cottage unique
Great fishing, swimming, biking, walking, running. Farmers Market is fabulous. Small shops in town are unique and reasonably priced. Golfing and groceries are nearby.

Nothing like advertised!
It was terrible. The dock advertised is 1/4 mile away. The dock itself is a death trap to say the least and one of our guests fell off into the water just trying to walk on it. When we woke up in the morning, the entire bathroom was infested with bugs and we had to throw away our toiletries. The owner said “well it is called bug island”. There were no light bulbs in the master bedroom, no towels, no working tv, the radio in the kitchen didn’t work, and bugs bugs bugs!
Our dock is a floating dock which is required on this lake. It has several extensions to allow the main part of the dock to be in deeper water. We have rented our home for 6 years an no one has ever fallen off.
As advertised the dock is about 50 yards away. The Core of Eng owns most of the land around the lake and most waterfront property is connected to the Core's land. We have 2 cleared paths to walk to the water.
If you leave a light on outside of the front door at night, bugs will gather and enter the house when the door is opened. Bugs will flock to the light if it's left on and the bathroom light was left on all night per this guest's report. Housekeeping checked immediately after check out and indicated that the gnats were limited to the bathroom where the light was left on.
It's best to use the lights on the side of the house if you plan to be out late. We had guests before and after this guest and there were absolutely no complaints about bugs or the dock.
There is a lamp in the master bedroom and extra bulbs available to our guests in the pantry. Radio does work and the TV in the den has DISH network..even DVR if you would like to record and watch later.
We have on our rental agreement NO LINENS.
It's helpful if there are concerns to call the owner ASAP which was not done @ in this case.
We pride ourselves in mostly having 5 star ratings and are committed to insure our guests are satisfied with their stay.
The rental agreement that is provided to each guest outlines the check in / out process and encourages immediate contact if there are concerns. We also ask our guests to make sure they read the details of the agreement and have it with them for reference during their stay.
Very Nice weekend.
Place was clean and very cozy! Only downside was the walk to the dock. I wish I had brought the wagon to take our stuff back and forth to the boat.
The location of the cottage was great. The cottage was clean and cozy. Lori was on point to make sure our stay was enjoyable. She checked in the afternoon of our arrival to make sure we were settled in and if we needed anything. She checked in again on our departal day as well. Will definitely stay again!!
Very glad you had an enjoyable time! We hope you will come again.
This was the perfect weekend getaway!
