"My family has been coming down to the lake for vacation for the past 8 years and have stayed in a different house every year. We all voted this as the best house we've stayed in. For starters, it was the cleanest by far. The layout is awesome...with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, plenty of privacy. The downstairs is terrific...pool table a big hit with the kids and adults:-) Deck is the best I've experienced...awesome views and a screened in porch option.
Our favorite aspect was the dock, which was phenomenal. Kids LOVED the party deck and ability to jump into the deep cove. Felt very safe as the dock sits in a quiet cove...not a lot of boat traffic to worry about. Owners were terrific to work with. I appreciated that they checked in by phone the day we arrived to ensure everything was as expected. Location of the house is perfect...we prefer staying in this area (calmer water, less boat traffic)...but still close enough to marinas. Plus, the ice cream boat that comes by daily at 11 am...a fan favorite for the kiddies! Kids love Bridgewater marina...arcade, mini-golf, Moosies restaurant, etc. (close by boat or drive).
Only thing I'd point out is that there are quite a few steps to dock. For the able-bodied...a nice workout to justify eating the nachos at Moosies...for the elderly or disabled, it would be tough to get up and down.
A great week, everyone had a blast! We hope to be back next year if the owners will have us!"

"This home was perfectly decorated, clean and welcoming. I appreciated the special touches from the owner. The best part of this home however is the location. Gorgeous wide water views of Smith mountain and right across the street from all of the amenities. We definitely love the option of going to the beach, swimming pools or playing tennis when we weren't on the lake. The fact that the marina is a few minutes away was perfect! We will definitely be back!"

Serenity lives up to its name - a Wonderful Retreat!
"Four friends from high school just celebrated retirement at Serenity House for 5 days/4 nights. It's a spacious home with beautiful views of Smith Mountain Lake. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time on the deck off the main floor of the house and on the deck of the boat dock. In October it' calm and peaceful. The kitchen is well appointed. There is ample seating inside and outside. The three King beds and the seating upstairs and downstairs are all extremely comfortable. It was very convenient to have a refrigerator downstairs, a washer and dryer on site and a hot tub which was a great added bonus. Grocery stores, shopping and restaurants are within a 15 - 20 minute drive. While at SML we visited wineries, the Booker T Washington National Monument, the Dream Acres alpaca farm and we took a lake cruise on the Virginia Dare. At the end of our stay, we really weren't ready to leave. The owner is very easy to work with. We would highly recommend a visit to Serenity House!"

"Not only was this property exactly as advertised - owners went out of their way to make stay enjoyable. We locked ourselves out of the condo - they responded within minutes. After a car accident caused a traffic standstill - keys were brought to us by boat. Even were nice enough to mail us items we left in dishwasher.
First class property with First Class Owners."
