                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: My husband and I love the outdoors and built Covered Porches in 2004 with that in mind. Its porches and covered dock allow us to relax and enjoy being outside even when it rains. We have been responsive to the needs and wants of our guests and have made improvements, major and minor, each year. We hope you enjoy Covered Porches as much as we do. We manage our vacation home rental so providing excellent customer service is our top priority. If you need assistance with boat rentals, sightseeing excursions, or anything else, please ask.

                      Why the Owner Chose Huddleston:
                      Covered Porches is located on the East side of the lake and we chose this area because of the privacy, large lot and beautiful sunset views. It's tucked in a cove great for swimming yet has a wide water view which opens up into the Roanoke channel. Directly across the lake is Bernard's Landing and less than 2 miles is SML State Park.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The porches are wonderful with their ceiling fans and comfortable chairs. The dock is covered so that when it rains or is too hot, we can still enjoy being outside. Their are ceiling fans and comfortable chairs on the porches as well as the dock. The fireplace off the Master bedroom is perfect for those cool evenings. A fire pit is available. 1/2 mile from our home is Parkway Marina where boat rentals are available. Smith Mountain Lake State Park is 3 miles from our home, great for hiking, playground for kids.
