Luxury Home: A Beautiful Secluded Setting for both Recreation & Relaxation.
Hello! We are the Abel Family. We enjoy travel and use HomeAway/VRBO/AirBnB quite regularly. As such, we are aware of how a property can really make a visit or vacation outstanding. We make great effort to make "Outer Banks At Smith Mountain Lake" everything we would want if we were coming to enjoy a relaxing and extremely fun time at the Lake.
Tim purchased this House in 2018

Amazing place-we didn't want to leave
Our group of 10-6 adults and 4 children (ages 67 to 2) had an amazing vacation at Tim and Michelle's home. The house is beautiful, comfortable, spacious and well equipped, but the outdoors is really where we loved spending our time. With several paddle boards and kayaks (life jackets provided), an incredible beach area for playing and a beautiful dock with comfortable seating and loungers for relaxing AND a gas fire pit, we spent little time in the house. Oh...we did have to sleep and eat!
The kitchen was well stocked and spacious (loved the drink fridge) and the bedrooms were large and the beds were comfortable. Having 3 full baths made it so convenient for our three families. Communication with Tim was easy and stress free and we had such a great time, we are already planning for a return trip. Thank you Tim and Michelle for sharing your lovely home and beautiful lake amenities!
Amazing Lake Vacation
Spectacular lake views. Beautiful beach. Every amenity you could ask for on a lake vacation. Enjoyed our time by all 3 fire pits and multiple outdoor seating areas. Impressive array of games/ movies for rainy days.
Wonderful comfortable lake property! Plenty of room for everyone with lots of options for enjoying the great dock, lake and beach area. Multiple fire pits, great seating for a group and the home's amenities were all outstanding. We have been to multiple SML homes and this one is a gem! Highly recommend.
Amazing vacation experience!
Our family loved staying here. We were able to relax, have fun on the water, and engage with each other for some much needed time together. Thank you Abel family for providing so many opportunities around your vacation home along with a peaceful environment.
For those who may read this and are considering coming in the future....there are so many fun things to do inside the house but also outside the house because the house is right on the water. The Abels have provided an abundance of water activities to choose from that we didn't even get to all of them. Also, many of us found ourselves falling to sleep with a good book on one of their comfortable chairs or couches inside and outside on the deck.
This had to be the most relaxing time we have had as a family in many years. We just cannot say enough about our stay and hope others will experience it too. Enjoy!!

The Abels' lake home was a wonderful backdrop to create some amazing family memories. Ones in which we will look make upon with exceeding joy!
We are thrilled your family made so many wonderful memories here. We do feel you get more opportunities staying here at OBX, with all the amenities, to make these great memories. Guests have so many stories to tell from kayaking, or biking, or hot tubbing, or games on the beach, or around the fire pit, etc. etc. We love hearing about all these fantastic memories knowing they are enshrined for the family forever. It makes the effort to come get away totally worth it!
Thanks for being our guest. Hope to see you back soon!

Perfect Vacation at Hidden Gem of place and home
We booked this vacation to spend time with family. One week prior to vacation we had a unexpected very stressful week. Soon after arriving to Tim and Michelle home we forgot everything as soon as we stepped in his very beautiful, well kept home with lot of rooms.
Location of home is out the world. Early morning coffee at the dock, wine around fire pit literally at the edge of water was very soothing to soul.
And to make this vacation even better we had great experience with owner of home " Tim and Michelle Abel". Wonderful host and very generous family. We very thankful to them to letting us enjoy their vacation home and all the toys at home. This was the perfect treatment for the stress we went through a week earlier.
We have told all of our friends and family about this and many of them are looking to visit. We are certianly going back soon.
