"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 :)"

"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 had a WONDERFUL long weekend at this Hidden Gem! My family decided to experience life at the lake one weekend and scoured the internet looking for just the right place for us. Close enough to for a short drive from Lynchburg (it was only 30 miles!) Big enough to accommodate us with enough amenities and comfort to help everyone unwind and have fun...and WE FOUND IT! Warren was very professional and helpful and reserving it was a breeze.
All stress melted away once we made our way down the lovely rustic driveway nestled in the tall trees and pulled up to this lovely lake home. The home was clean with everything we needed to make a wonderful memory. Very spacious and had plenty of nooks to nestle in as well as larger areas to spread out. Comfortable seating, plenty of beds and bathrooms, 3 table areas to play board games and enjoy delicious meals.
The first night we grilled out with the big gas grill provided. The kitchen was so well stocked my kitchen at home is envious! We enjoyed breakfast on the enormous wrap around deck. The huge basement provided hours of fun as we played many a ping pong and air hockey tournament. We set up the badminton net outside and even enjoyed the leftover pool toys. The gently sloping yard made it easy to enjoy the calm cove & the double docks. Even my 6 yr old nephew could venture out between the docks as it created a nice little swimming area for him. Beyond the docks it goes deeper so my teenage nieces could jump off the docks and have a great time. With a big table and plenty of seating options down at the dock, we spent as much time as we could soaking up the last of September’s Sun.
We all felt just like we were at home there. My 60+ mother walks with a cane due to MS and found the home and property easy to get around in. She enjoyed doing puzzles and drinking coffee overlooking this picturesque setting.
More people need to know about this little gem tucked away from the hustle and bustle. My niece said she felt like she was in a movie staying there because it really brought you into the woods and the lake setting in such a magical way!
We enjoyed our time at the Bridgewater Marina nearby on Sunday evening. Restaurants, Boat rentals, Gas stations, Grocery Stores...all close enough for convince but when you are nestled away at this lake house, the busy rush of the rest of the world disappears! Thanks to Warren for everything. The setting and the price can't be beat! My friend already has booked it for her fam"

"We rented this condo for an anniversary getaway, and were so impressed from the first moment we saw it. It was so clean, and had everything you could think of to make your stay relaxing. The kitchen was stocked with supplies to cook and clean, and the bathroom has a lovely jacuzzi tub. The owner's clearly take the time to add little details to make sure your stay is comfortable. It is a studio layout, which was the perfect size for 2 people (and our lab + her crate) and was a quiet location right on the lake. There were several people staying around us, but we never heard any noise or disturbances. We really appreciated the google map that Don emailed us which showed their favorite attractions around the condo. We went to several places and really enjoyed all of them. We loved the whole area, ate at many great restaurants, and rented kayaks at a nearby marina. I would recommend this place to anyone!"
