"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!!"

"This was a perfect place for a weekend getaway with the girls. Beautiful views and a very clean condo. Nice and private location not too far from popular places at the lake. We rented a boat from parkway marina which is located right down the road. This was a wonderful experience. Very pleasant owner. We hope to return soon."

"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."

"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 :)"
