About the property

4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, private cove, near everything!

Our home is situated right on the water in the Lakeland Pines area of Moneta, VA. The home has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8 people. Lakeland Pines is the "best of both worlds." Our location and cove are very private, but within minutes of nearby shopping, dining, and recreation. The home is cozy and comfortable, but completely updated with all of the modern amenities! The dock has plenty of space for a boat/jet ski rental as well as a swimming platform that kids will love. We have two kayaks and a paddle boat for your use as well as fishing poles and inflatables. We also provide a welcome basket and surprises for the kids upon arrival. Fresh bed linens and towels are included as well as beach towels.

About Craig and T.J. Ryan

We are Craig and T.J. Ryan. We purchased this home in January, 2015. We have done extensive repair and renovation to the home as we enjoy the home for much of the year. We take a VERY hands-on approach to managing the property. We would never leave a management company in charge of our home. We maintain the property ourselves which includes all renovations, exterior maintenance, and cleaning. It is important to us for our guests to know that WE prepare the house for them before each stay. We take great pride in our home and it is our goal to provide our guests with the most comfortable stay possible.

Why Craig and T.J. Ryan chose Smith Mountain Lake Area

We love this property for two reasons:

1. The quiet cove

2. The close proximity to EVERYTHING by boat or car.

These 2 things are almost impossible to find on the lake. We are close to everything by boat and car, but the cove is so quiet that the kids can jump off the dock, swim, kayak, and paddle-boat without fear of boat traffic. It really is the best of both worlds!

What makes this house unique

We offer EARLY check-in for no extra charge! You may check in at 2:00PM.

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation to SML was one of the best we've ever had. We were so impressed with this rental and its amenities as well as the hospitality of its owners. When we checked in, we found a basket of goodies from the owners waiting for us as well as a fridge full of drinks. We received both a text and email from the owners making sure we had everything we needed and their phone # so we could contact them. The house itself sits on a private cove with no boat traffic which makes it perfect for families. The view of the lake was amazing from the large windows. Our kids loved jumping off the dock, swimming, kayaking, fishing, floating on the large inflatable and riding in the paddle boat. We have never stayed in a rental that provided so many amenities. The house was beautifully decorated and well equipped. We didn't want to leave! We will definitely be back!

Feels Like a Friend's House

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was more than we had hoped because of how fantastic this home was for our family. We felt like we were staying at a friend's house without the friend being there. Upon arrival we found a basket of treats, wine, necessities in the fridge, plush towels, beach towels, a well decorated and very clean home. The renters were easily accessible making us feel like we could reach out to them with any concerns. The amenities provided including kayaks, floats, the dock house, fishing poles, board games, movie selections, incredibly stocked kitchen were more than we expected. When we weren't on the water, we went to the D Day Memorial, Hickory Hill Winery, Sunken City Brewery, and local golf courses. This house is located within walking distance from two restaurants and near a marina for boat and paddle board rentals. The grocery store is also located nearby. The neighborhood was quiet and the house was located on a private cove. We would recommend this home to our friends and family. We can't wait to return next summer.

Awesome location on SML

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this cozy home in a quiet cove on SML! Great location near the bridge to rent a pontoon boat and easy drive to restaurants and grocery store. Home is modern and beautiful inside!! Very clean with hardwood floors, linens included (less packing for us), pretty updated accommodations, loved the view of the lake from upstairs kitchen and family room, and downstairs provided another family room with large tv for watching sports game, 3 lovely bedrooms and large bathroom. Easy access to deck and backyard from ground level basement. Amazing dock with kayaks and paddle boat. The hospitality gestures waiting to greet us on arrival was a very warm surprise (basket full of snacks and bottle of wines, refrigerator with water and various drinks, and bedrooms with chocolate treats/toys for kids). My family enjoyed their stay tremendously and was sad to leave. Thank you for sharing this lovely lake house!!!

Great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

It's difficult to put our surprise in words. 7 adults on a Labor Day weekend reunion. The owners contacted me before our stay and ensured welcomeness. 3 of us got there first and were anxious to figure out if this could accommodate. Boom. Welcome basket. Pineapple ( southern hospitality symbol), beer and soda in the fridge. Linens provided, towels on beds, chocolates too. Yep. This works. The house is awesome. Tastefully decorated..games, xbox and wiii and Dvd's in two hang out rooms...We didn't use em but screams kid friendly. Quiet cove, kayaks, paddle boat. Fishing rods, tackle boxes labeled for guests with plenty of gear. Kitchen with everything. Gas grill, fire pit ..we used all that. We rented a pontoon boat for the weekend and nestled it nicely on the spacious dock. Outlets and the Bose Radio provided the evening entertainment on the dock. None of us had been to SML before and this location seemed perfect. We had fun. I can't say enough about the house. It's perfect. Enjoy.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time for us at Smith Mountain Lake and we were very happy. The home was amazing, very clean, completely stocked, comfortable beds, great decor and even little surprise gifts in every bedroom. The location couldn't be beat, set in a very quiet cove perfect for enjoying the dock and the water and all the fun water toys the owners provided. We have 5 kids and there wasn't a time when one of them said they were bored! All of them had the best time. The owners went out of the way to make us feel welcome. They were quick to answer any questions I had and give us suggestions for boat rentals and local restaurants. I couldn't have asked for a better experience! We will definitely be back!

Wonderful vacation home for families

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at SML. We rented the house for a family vacation. We have 3 grown boys, ages 19-29. We also took our 2 dogs. The house exceeded our expectations. It has been recently updated and was very clean and welcoming. The owners provided everything you could possibly need for a fun vacation. It was conveniently located, yet was very private and quiet. We enjoyed kayaking, swimming, hiking the trails at a nearby State Park. We rented a boat and jet skis for exploring the lake. At the end of the day, we enjoyed wonderful meals on the patio while we watched the sunset. The surrounding area is beautiful. We had such a wonderful week! I highly recommend this rental home to anyone interested in a vacation at SML.
