Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Moneta, Virginia
The Gate House was built in 2009 and is a beautiful place to spend a week on the lake. The 3000 square foot house is well laid out for relaxing and entertaining. In a place where most rental houses have a long set of stairs to the lake, the Gate House has a meandering concrete walkway.

The house is beautifully decorated in a 'beachy-cabin' style and has all the amenities. The Gate House is located on a private cove that is great for swimming off the private dock. It has main channel views, but is off the channel enough to be secluded. Close to the action without all the 'action'. You can see more on our FB page, (search 'smlgatehouse' and it should show up).

You can have lunch and afternoon fun at Bridgewater Plaza (5 minutes by boat) (search 'bridgewaterplaza'), go out to a nice restaurant on the lake fo...

This was a wonderful vacation. We took our grandchildren on this trip. They enjoyed the game room. We took our pontoon and docked it at The Gate House all week. The pier was perfect for the boat. Beautiful house.

Staying at the Gate House was wonderful. From the well appointed kitchen to the comfortable family furnishings, it was our top vacation week ever. We had ages 10-75 and we all found things to do -hanging out on the dock-chillin’ in the basement (Ping-Pong anyone?)...More

About the neighbourhood
Smith Mountain Lake has often been called the 'Jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains'. It is about 30 miles from either Roanoke or Lynchburg. It has 20,000 acres of fantastic fishing, boating, skiing, wakeboarding, and tubing surface! You can spend a week on the lake, never go to the same cove twice and still not see it all!

And, of course, there is history nearby. Appomattox is less than an hour away. The birthplace of Booker T. Washington is just minutes from the lake. And the National D-Day Memorial is only 25 minutes down the road in historic Bedford (the site was chosen because Bedford lost a higher percentage of its soldiers on D-Day than any other community in the country).
