Kathy's Place is located in a small cove with a southern exposure and magnificent 'million dollar' view overlooking the main channel, the Hales Ford Bridge, Smith Mountain and the Bridgewater Plaza just below Bouy Marker R 30. This waterfront townhome is one of two in a unique duplex (See Spike's Place, VRBO Listing #282712) situated on over two acres in a single family residential subdivision. A convenience store is 5 minutes away, and grocery stores, restaurants, shopping centers, marinas, boat rentals, movies and the State Park are all within 2 to 30 minutes' drive - some by car and some by boat! The small protected cove is ideal for swimming, fishing, floating, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boating but with easy access to the lake and only 2 minutes from the Bridge which has restaurants, miniature golf, game room, gift shops, realtors and the Chamber of Commerce.
Kathy's Place is two stories totaling 2800+ sq. ft. plus a 200 sq. ft. lakefront sunroom. All rooms are spacious and comfortably furnished. There is a queen bed and twin bed in the master bedroom. The lakefront bedroom has a queen bed and a twin bed. The back bedroom has a double bed and a bunk bed (both twin mattresses). The living room has a new 50' Plasma HD Flatscreen TV with soundbar and a BLURAY DVD Player. The Family room has just been converted (June 2001) to a game room with a brand new pool table with ping pong table top, a foosball table, a 42' HD TV with soundbar and Bluray DVD player on a swivel tilting mount with Directv HD Platinum Package including HBO, Cinemax and Showtime, WIFI High Speed Internet and local telephone service are also included. (New pictures of the game room should be posted no later than January 2012.)

In 2010, we tiled the dining room and kitchen, installed a new refrigerator, a new heating and air package, all new vertical blinds.

About the owner: We started 'Spike's Prime Time Fishin'' in late 1988. Spike and I are striper charter captains with two 22ft deck boats. We purchased the duplex to offer fishing charters and/or waterfront vacation rentals to our clients and to anyone who enjoys the water like we do. We tried to put the amenities we liked best in all of the places we have traveled and stayed into our fishing and rental business.
Why the Owner Chose Moneta: We chose our duplex immediately for the magnificient view! We also chose it for close proximity to stores, etc. and Route 122. It is near the Hales Ford Bridge, which gives us close access to Bridgewater Plaza and local marinas. It also puts us halfway on the Roanoke River side of the lake, which gives us excellent access to fishing from the Dam to the headwaters the year round. We have deep water under our docks but also have a small shallow water sandy beach.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: A golf car is included in your rental. We have shared use of 6 kayaks, the sandy beach, a canoe and a paddleboat. We have great fishing off of our docks. We are situated on over 2 acres surrounded by large white pines which gives it a 'compound' effect for privacy. There is pleanty of grass for putting up our volleyball/badminton/croquet sets. A large paved driveway is wonderful for skateboards, bikes, rollerblades and sidewalk chalk. We also live on a dead end street and keeps traffic at a minimum, good for walking and biking.
