"We have been going to SML for 4 years... the last 3 at Covered Porches. Roslyn is great to work with and the house is perfect! Great dock, beach and house. No suggestions to make anything better. Our family is already looking forward to year 5."

"I've done a summer rental with my whole family for the past 25 years, but this house was the best. The house itself was spacious, beautifully furnished, and loaded with unique features like a huge game room and an enormous theater. But it was the location we liked the best. It's set on a large inlet off a very large lake. This gave us a degree of quiet, without the roar of speedboats and jet skis found in other places. My grandkids spent hours jumping off the dock and swimming around. A rented speedboat and water skis added to the fun and excitement. When they wanted a change of scenery, the community pool was an easy walk away. All agreed this was the best rental ever."

"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."
