Gorgeous home, with views of the mountains and the Smith Mountain State Park. Gentle slope, fireplace! There is a canoe for you to enjoy our waters with!! Tired of walking those steps, then come to this home. Great tranquil setting, with awesome views make this home the best place to stay on Smith Mountain Lake! Toughest decision will be which floor, or which deck to spend your time relaxing. Covered dock with plenty of room for jet skis and boats on all sides, and decks to relax on. The water here is deep for fishing right off of your powered dock. Jump off the dock into deep water and swim, right here. Shallow end makes it safe as well for the toddler. This lot is an idyllic setting all year round. Enjoy watching the sunrise from the wrap-around decks, and grilling outside on the propane grill. This gorgeous home is in high command on Smith Mountain Lake due to the large space, and amenities. The home features large living, dining, family rooms, and game rooms, with pool table & foosball, all overlooking the lake on each level. HBO, and game boy, and more.
I stayed here with my husband for a few days for our Christmas Vacation. Overall, it was wonderful and I highly recommend the house. There were a few very minor issues. The house has a heat pump that took us some trouble shooting to get the right setting. We called the emergency number to get some help (as the house was 60 degrees) but never got a call back. We had it figured out in the meantime, and the house became very warm and comfortable. The house was very clean. The beds are super comfy. The fireplace works great. The internet is slow, but that was to be expected. The kitchen is pretty well stocked with tools. I do suggest bringing a sharp knife though. We did not use the hot tub. It felt a little cooler than preferred and we weren't all that motivated to begin with. The pool table and foosball tables were such a fun bonus. Both were in great condition. The best part of the house is the view and the waterfront. We slept in the loft and woke up to a beautiful sunrise coming over the lake every morning. It was so perfect. Our dogs enjoyed the dock and jumping into the water, even in December. Its a really great yard that slopes down to the water. Perfect for playing fetch. We had a really great time and would highly recommend this house.
We had a great time at this rental house. House was clean, great living room to spread out with the family. We had an issue with the hot tub the first day, called the number helpline number and someone came out right away to fix it, very pleased! Great time overall
My husband and I were looking for a quiet place to have a nice fall weekend away. Anticipating cool temperatures, the amenities that led us to choose this location were the pool table and the hot tub. We had read other reviews which warned of the extreme heat in the home, but we attributed that to hot summer days. The home is fine, but this is not a "luxury" rental. Kitchen and baths functional but not updated. Bedrooms small but more than adequate. Sparsely, but tastefully decorated. We brought our groceries and ate in. We were there the last weekend in October and it was unseasonably warm. We arrived Friday evening after dark, after a sunny but cool-ish day (60's) to find the interior of the home at 8:30, well after dark, 84 degrees. I wasn't concerned at that point; the air was not on. We opened windows and screen doors and were comfortable before going to bed. The overnight low was in the upper 40's. We had set the air conditioning the night before to 72. The sun rose and within 1.5 to 2 hours, the interior temp was 76 degrees. Outside it was in the 50's. But the clear steady sunshine made the front of the house (the family room and kitchen) hard to take. No worries. We spent time in the basement - which was much, much cooler, had the pool table, TV, and the hot tub just outside on the patio - and we made ourselves comfortable. It was so hot on the main floor at midday (85 inside, 76 outside, AC set at 72) that we took our lunch to the table on the dock (in the shade) to eat. We found fans in a bedroom closet, and once the sun was behind the trees - probably around 4 - the fans were able to pull in some cooler air. We were able to spend the evening on the main floor in comfort. The home is on the inside of a curve, not on a point, so the adjacent docks are very close by. There is a marina nearby, too, so there is that boat traffic. Given the size and space and amenities of the house, it should rent for much, much more. It probably doesn't because the two-story wall of windows, which provides an awesome view, makes the main living space nearly uninhabitable during sunny hours/days. No amount of air conditioning can overcome it. Only room darkening shades, floor to ceiling, will do that. Overall, we found the house to be completely suitable for our needs. We were able to work around the heat. We enjoyed the pool table, the hot tub, and the satellite TV. We will probably rent it again.
We were well pleased with the house. The house was kept very nice, along with a beautiful view of the SML. Our only complaint was the hot tub. The hot tub was not well maintained, so we didn't get a chance to really enjoy it, which is what we were really looking forward to do. This may have been a one-time issue and we were only at the house for a weekend, so we didn't really have time to communicate the issue to the owners. However, I would definitely rent this house again (as long as I was assured the hot tub was clean).
While it was convenient to walk to the lake and to have a pontoon dock, the house's age and lack of up-keep put a damper on our stay. The windows are lovely, but it means the loft and the living room are hot - during the afternoon it was over 95 degrees INSIDE the house! Also, the kitchen is tiny with outdated appliances and little to no space for preparing meals. The downstairs bathroom felt like it was taken out of a bad 50's movie - pink walls, rusty sink and a toilet that didn't flush. Additionally, the beds downstairs were rocks - it was more comfortable to sleep on the floor. Fortunately, we were only at the house for a weekend, otherwise the amenities like a hot tub and access to the water would have been overshadowed by the seriously outdated condition of the house. Before staying here - make sure you have lots of outdoor activities planned, so that you limit your time in the house.
We had a great time! Downstairs could have used a good cleaning ... Bathroom and bedroom fine.... But living area could use some help.
