Three generations of our family, ages 11-83, just spent a wonderful week in this beautiful home. The house was spotless, which was a big thing for us, and very well insulated so it was quiet. My husband and I had the bedroom right next to the great room and never heard those who woke up earlier than we did. The kids loved the paddle board. We rented a ski boat, skis, tube, wave runner and pontoon boat during the course of the week at The Parrot Cove which was a short drive away and very nice to deal with. There is a clean, large Food Lion less than ten minutes away. The one suggestion we would make is that anyone visiting during hot summer days not use the oven as it raised the temperature in the great room to 78 degrees for much of the evening. The outside grill is the better choice. Smith Mountain Lake is a good destination for anyone looking for lots of activity. If you are looking for a quiet serene lake vacation;however, SML is probably not the place for you. The coastline is heavily developed with houses, resulting in noise pollution of many boats and jet skis.
6 other family members joined me for vacation and everyone agreed it was our best vacation ever. Fished, kayaked, boated, swimming, paddleboarding, reading, porch sitting, hammock every day of our stay. Loved the wrap-around porch and the rockers. Loved the shade on the dock. Completely decompressed within two hours and loved every minute. We did not want the week to end. The owner is excellent and made sure that everything was ready for our visit and checked in during the week to ensure that everyone was satisfied. We will definitely return.
Our stay has left me speechless! It was more than we ever expected for a wonderful anniversary getaway! Between the clean and comfy lake house and the spectacular view we couldn't have wished for more! So much to do within the property and close to lots of fun! The owner was so helpful and accommodating! We will definitely be returning whenever we visit Smith Mountain Lake!!!
