"We arrived the day after 6-8 inches of fresh snow had fallen. We were thrilled to see that the entire driveway and parking areas had been plowed, and the front walk and porch had been shoveled. William even left us a bag of salt in case we had trouble with any icy spots. He was also helpful in trying to resolve a wi-fi issue. (This got straightened out our first evening there, so it was not a big deal at all.) The house was great. We gathered with our children and their spouses, along with our dogs, to celebrate our 35th anniversary. The layout was perfect for cooking, sitting around the fire and talking, eating at the large table, and enjoying the beautiful decor and views out the large windows and doors. We did not get to hike the trails, but we did enjoy walks on the golf course where the dogs could run in the snow. We also slept extremely well; this house has incredibly comfortable beds. It was very clean and well-cared for, and I'd recommend it to anyone."

"Our vacation was incredible. The home is spacious, with incredible views! First vacation our dog came along and she truly enjoyed it. We cooked out every evening and stayed at the house because it was so beautiful. We rented a boat from Mitchells Marina which was located straight across the cove. We enjoyed the board games, Ping-Pong, and foosball. The property also had a firepit so we could do smores and hot dogs over the fire. My daughter caught a bass right off the dock. I would recommend this property to family and friends!! We truly appreciated making memories and relaxing for the week.."

"What a wonderful vacation! We could not have had a better location since we fish and need a place to dock our boat out of the weather. The cove was quiet, the neighbors were friendly, and the golf course track for carts was to our dog’s liking. The walk across the yard to the dock is far better than 70 + stairs, especially for boomers with aching knees. I spent much time on the deck, especially in the morning with my coffee. There is something extremely relaxing about watching water and drinking coffee.
We have stayed in different homes, but this kitchen was the easiest one for cooking. First, there was not much that we needed that was not there to use and second, the work path was good. I liked the table in the kitchen, even though it was a little crowded, so that I did not have to take the food into the other room except when we had a larger crowd.
The beds were comfortable even though we are used to a king.
Mr. Theis is a wonderful host. He is very accommodating. If there is something you need, just ask him, and he will help out.
We did visit the winery, but not get to the drive-in theatre. Our son rented a ski boat at Mitchell’s marina over Memorial Day weekend, and we all had great fun tubing. We could not have asked for better service - check them out for boating and eating.
If you are looking for a quiet place for relaxing with family and friends, Smith Mountain Lake and Mr. Theis’ home is where you want to be. It made me sad to leave, but all good times come to an end. We will return!!"

"We had three families come into the area for a wedding in Waynesboro. This house was the perfect place for us all to stay together! Spacious, well stocked with everything we could possibly need, exceptionally clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The owner even called soon after check in to make sure we were settling in nicely. We have rented many vacation homes and this one is definitely in our top favorites now. We would return and highly recommend it!"
