"What a great vacation home with incredible views of the lake. Our family visited for a few days to escape the horrendous winter in western NY. The house had everything we could need and Kathy and Spike were the most hospitable hosts I have ever met. Our children and dog loved the lake and the spaciousness of the house and property. Thank you for a great mini-vacation and we definitely look forward to returning sometime soon. Unfortunately, we did not have a chance to take a fishing trip, but that will hopefully be in the plan next time. Once again, many thanks and take care until next time."

"The house was well stocked. I will not have to pack as much next time because they had everything. The sofa in family room was great. It had room for everyone and great tvs.It was a ski in ski out. Wi-Fi was great. Appliances were New. I just needed a book on how to operate the oven. Looking forward to going back. Loft is definitely a loft with a spiral staircase. Not easy for older renters to climb."

"My husband and I spent a week here with our children and grandchildren. The home was wonderful. Very comfortable with plenty of room. The private beach area was great for the little ones. We would definitely return to this house but we will have 10 people next year so a larger place is in order. The owner was a delight and made the experience easy and comfortable. Our English Springer, Maggie, had a great time too!"

"We had a wonderful stay at this beautifully appointed home on Smith Mountain Lake. It was a family vacation with two adult children and spouses, and 3 grandchildren. The location on the lake, the beach and the house couldn't have been better for us all. We thoroughly enjoyed the week and will definitely be back. Bed set-up was terrific for us in that our family with little children had a floor to themselves and our couple with no kids enjoyed their retreat upstairs. Grandparents had a lovely private master suite with access to the deck which made for perfect mornings with coffee.
The lake was absolutely wonderful at this time of year and the whole family enjoyed it. Fishing was super off the dock for the little ones. We rented a pontoon boat for part of the time, and next time will rent it for the whole week. It was much more fun than our little bass boat. Joe made it possible for us to keep our bass boat in the boat house and that was particularly appreciated.
All in all a perfect spot and the Jenkins were wonderful to work with. The house is obviously a family home with photos around, plenty of games, books, wood for the firepit (which was a favorite!) and a very well appointed kitchen. We lacked for nothing.
I highly recommend this place. It was our first lake trip (we are usually a beach family) and it was a big hit for everyone."
