Penhook house description

This beautiful lake front home is situated on a point overlooking gorgeous Smith Mountain Lake with over 600 feet of shoreline and INCREDIBLE MOUNTAIN AND LAKE VIEWS. We have just completed an interior makeover (Spring 2014) and virtually everything inside is new. The sun rises in the morning are magnificent as the sun rises over the mountain and the full moons will take your breath away. Only five steps seperate you from the water and in fact, you can use the handicap ramp and avoid the stairs altogether. There is a nice gentle sloping sidewalk to the dock.

The house has plenty of room for entertaining and relaxing. A large den/family/bunk room has a 60' TV with cable for those that need a break from the water. The master bedroom also has a large screen TV. The kitchen is very nicely equipped with all of the necessary items to prepare a nice meal. There is a commercial ice maker for filling up the coolers too.

There are 3 bedrooms:1 king in master ( plus 2 twins), 1 Queen in 1 bedroom, 2 twins in another bedroom, and 2 bunk beds (one with a pullout trundle bed) in the 'bunk room'. There are 3 full bathrooms (one is handicapped accessible). Lots of windows and sliding glass doors allow for maximum views of the lake and the mountain.

The large dock is great with an attached floating dock for swimming and mooring a boat if you have one. There are several places on the lake that rent boats. The yard is large so bring toys for the kids to play with.
There are more pictures available. I'll email them if you like.
We hope you enjoy your stay.

                  Smith Mountain Lake has some of the best striper fishing around. I would suggest contacting Capt. Todd

                  My trips with him have been fantastic.
