Moneta house description

Our lakeside log home is our family's vacation home that we rent to guests 3 or 4 weeks each year. It is about 30 yards from the waterfront of Smith Mountain Lake, the 'Jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains', and has a large dock and party deck. Built in 2004, it has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and over 3,000 sq. ft. of living space.

Our house has a covered porch and multiple decks. The main level is open and airy with a large dining table (pine harvest table that seats up to 10) and living area that is open to the kitchen area. The loft area is great for board games or quiet relaxation and has a bedroom and private bath. The large basement is predominantly above grade and has lots of natural light from the many windows. It contains a ping pong table, additional TV with surround sound, a laundry room, a bunk room, and a full bath. The quiet cove is great for swimming and water sports.

The property is convenient by water or car to restaurants, shops, miniature golf, an arcade, movie theatre, vineyards and wineries, and museums - D-Day WWII Memorial (Bedford, 30 mins), Booker T. Washington (Moneta), Transportation, Science, Tubman Museum of Art (Roanoke, 45 mins), and Mill Mountain Zoo on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Convenient hiking and sightseeing at SML State Park and National Parks on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

                        This place was absolutely extraordinary! The facilities were clean, comfortable, and well-maintained. Lake access and view were excellent. Extremely convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, and recreational facilities, but still very private. Weather was a little cool to take full advantage of the canoe, cayak, and decks, but we hope to remedy that during a future (summer?) visit. Bill was congenial, gracious, and helpful in all aspects of our stay.

                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing, girls getaway, age 55+, families with teenagers.

                        Owner response: Thank you. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and would love for you to return in warmer weather.

                        One of the best vacation rentals we've ever had! Amazing log home that is beautifully decorated. Leather couches are great to lay back and read a book while the sun shines through the picture windows. House deck is also very comfortable and with great views. Basement bunk room and game area perfect for kids. We had a blast swimming off the dock and bringing in our boat. Owners do a great job of making you feel at home and enjoying your stay. Highly recommended.

                        The house was amazing. It was spacious and inviting. We had 4 couples and had plenty of room to manuever. The owner was extremely flexible with our needs and opened up his house for whatever we needed. It was much appreciated and we would definitely return.

                        Beautiful, clean home with full amenities as listed. Owner was easy to work with. Already planning a return trip for next year. House located in a nice cove that receives very little (if any) wake. Great swimming off the dock. Five minute boat ride to closest marina.

                        This beautiful lake home was a great place for our family to meet and spend a fun relaxing week together. This is a beautiful, well kept property with plenty of space to relax and enjoy. The home is very open and welcoming in the kitchen/dining/livingroom/deck area where we spent indoor time together cooking, eating and playing games at the large diningroom table. We also enjoyed the ping pong table in the basement. This home is located on the lake where floating and swimming right near the dock is great. We spent a lot of time enjoying the lake right at the house. It was great to be able to use the canoe and kayak provided by the home owner. With these, we explored the lake near the property. We also enjoyed renting jet skis for a day and a boat on another day, venturing further away to enjoy the immenseness and beauty of Smith Mountain Lake. The property owner was great to work with. Everything went very smoothly and we were very happy with our choice among many available at the lake. I would definitely stay at Bill's lake home again and I recommend this property as a wonderful place to relax and enjoy Smith Mountain Lake.

                        My out-of-state family was looking for a Fall Break location to both relax and meet with extended family members living near Smith Mountain Lake. This home was perfect! We've rented other vacation homes in various places around the country and this was truly the nicest for many reasons. The setting on a quiet lake cove with trees sporting their fall foliage was spectacular. The log home itself is beautifully maintained (clearly not just a rental, but a lovely second home to a family who cares for it), nicely appointed, spacious enough for several people with private bedrooms and baths and open common areas. Multi-level decks bring the beautiful outdoors in and the large pier was a perfect spot for fishing and quiet conversations. Our visit was short and we were unable to take advantage of visiting the local historical sites, restaurants and other attractions, but we will look forward to those things another time. We definitely hope for a return trip in the future.

                        We had a wonderful time at this lovely lakeside log home. The house was very spacious with plenty of room for our family and friends to relax, play games, watch TV or even to read a book alone. The kitchen was well equipped with everything needed for cooking and serving a crowd. The trees surrounding the deck provided privacy and the feel of being in a tree house - with lots of bird and squirrel activity in the morning! The cove was deep and wide - perfect for boating and swimming. The cove is also convenient to Marina and boat launch. We would definitely rent this home again!

                        We had a wonderful visit with family and friends at Smith Mountain Lake. It is so peaceful and relaxing while offering many activities to keep everyone busy. The house was beautiful and very cozy. Every amenity that we could have needed was offered at this house. It was great to eat our breakfast out on the deck with the wonderful view. The lake is beautiful and so much to explore. We sure hated to leave and come back to reality.
