Property description

Set just off the main channel of Smith Mountain Lake, the Crown Jewel is the perfect home for families. It is furnished with brand new furniture and supplies necessary to provide convenience, comfort and relaxation. A 2-story dock awaits you complete with 180° beautiful views, cabana bar, deck furniture, a diving gate and more! The dock has recently been updated with composite decking, so you’ll be enjoying a splinter-free day in the sun! The setting of the Crown Jewel allows for gorgeous sunsets from the back lanai and the dock. A peaceful way to end the day.

The main floor has 3 bedrooms. The master has a queen bed, private master bath and balcony overlooking the lake. The second bedroom has a queen bed and the third bedroom has 2 twins. A full bathroom is located between them. The kitchen has granite counter tops and is fully equipped for your culinary enjoyment. A first-floor laundry and pantry are conveniently located just off the kitchen. The open floor plan has a dining area opening up to the great room with a flat-screen TV and fireplace. Off the great room is our favorite place, the lanai, with comfortable furniture and side deck with gas grill. The lower level has a fully furnished family room with sofas, fireplace, flat-screen TV, electronic gaming center and a game table. A separate area has a queen sleeper sofa and a full bath.

The Crown Jewel is tucked in a secluded neighborhood, the Village East subdivision that gives the family the benefit of a community pool and recreation area with tennis and basketball courts. A private boat launch is also available for our guests.

Our location abounds with fun activities and entertainment opportunities! We are a 3-minute drive to Hickory Hill Winery where you can taste wine, have a picnic or take a blanket on Saturday evening and enjoy an outdoor music concert. Booker T. Washington monument is close by, Smith Mountain Lake Park and Beach, the beautiful Peaks of Otter and the National D-Day Memorial provide other short trips and family memories. The Bridgewater Plaza and Westlake area offer shopping, eating, putt-putt golf, boat and jet-ski rentals, cinema and all the civilization you’ll need! There are 3 public golf courses within a 20-minute drive that offer outstanding challenges and views.

Of course, fishing is great on Smith Mountain Lake. There is excellent fishing right off our dock or fishing guides are available. Whichever you choose, a fishing license is needed. These can be obtained at several bait and tackle shops in the area.

Other fun activities... From triathlons to fireworks, antique boat shows, charity home tours, and wake boarding tournaments, Smith Mountain Lake has something to offer everyone in the family! Dinner options range from pizza and ice cream (Bridgewater Marina) to fine dining at The Landing, and a menagerie of offerings in between such as Mexican, Caribbean, Asian, and Irish. A few of our favorites are Blackwater Cafe, Jake's, Jonathon's and Tuscan Tavern, most within a short drive. Jonathon's is offers great American cuisine, while the Tuscan Tavern serves wonderful Italian fare. Jakes's is just a great lake restaurant for kids and adults. Should hiking and mountain biking be your calling, the rolling hillside around SML is perfect for riding. Mountain hiking trails can be found along the Blue Ridge Parkway and great walking trails abound at the SML State Park. A personal favorite is a hike up to the Peaks of Otter just outside of Bedford, VA on Rt. 43.
