"We rented the home for a family vacation with visiting relatives close to Roanoke area. The house was very spacious and more than accommodating for the group we had. The layout offered privacy and space for naps for elderly or young if needed throughout day. There is a water trampoline, paddle boat, floats, lifejackets, golf cart all for guest use. There is a deck just off the living room upstairs that gives a good view of the yard and cove area. The kitchen was well equipped. They had linens provided, although we brought our own. The washer and dryer were HE and new....worked like a dream. Although, given early warning to stay within the homes boundaries, we found the neighbors to be pleasant. The owners were good with communication, answered when we had issues.... and were very easy to deal with. There was a small issues with the water trampoline at check in, from the last guests, of which the owners graciously offered to drive 3 hours to fix, although we were able to do for them instead. The last evening we had an issue with the kids getting lose in the golf cart and creating some damage to property.... owners were very calm with issue and assured us they would follow up with inspection. The home itself is great! A little more on the secluded side of SML, but well worth the drive. The bedding and furniture were all comfortable and the extras downstairs were great for rainy days (pool table, shuffle board). The house was so large we didn't use the downstairs kitchen. We did not use the guest amenities at the campground/marina nearby, but they are available for guests as well (playground, small beach and dock and tiki bar.) The small beach area that belongs with the property is great for kids being able to play with the rocks, build in sand or easily wade out in the water....as there is a very gradual decline."

"Only in the home for 2 nights, but enjoyed the peacefulness, and privacy of home. Our family had plenty of space, near by boat rentals, horseshoe pit, and the highlight for the kids was jumping off the boat deck!! The owner Mr. Lubbers was very nice, and we thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home!"

"Ramsey's Retreat was gorgeous with spectacular views of SML! The owners were wonderful to work with and quick on responding to e-mails. This was our first time renting Ramsey's Retreat and it was beyond our expectations :) We loved the covered porch, it was so peaceful and quiet. We were able to rent a Pontoon boat and enjoy the lake for two beautiful days. What a wonderful early Mother's Day gift spending time together with my husband, daughters and son-in-law. Thank you John and Donna for letting us enjoy your lake house :)"
