Recent Smith Mountain Lake reviews

  • Beautiful view

    "The view from the cottage is beautiful. Could not ask for a better spot. The colors of Fall were well displayed. Hiking trails nearby. The cottage itself is quaint and, as indicated, is nice and private even with other houses around. We sat on the dock for most of the afternoon watching boats pass by. People with mobility issues may have problems with the steps leading to the dock, and it is on a hill, however it is good exercise for those without health issues and worth the climb back up. Pics are accurate so travellers can be their own judge."

  • Lake Time Spring Break 2015

    "This was our families second trip to Ramsey's Retreat. The home provides fantastic views of the lake looking towards Smith Mountain. Both the large living area, kitchen and master bedroom capture the beautiful morning sun. During our most recent stay, we used the dock area for our runabout that we use for travel to other parts of SML when the cold spring days allowed. The living area has a gas fireplace that warms the living room on the cold evenings and the open floor plan allowes for great conversation between those in the kitchen and living room. Our first trip to Ramsey's Retreat was a Thanksgiving trip, where our parents joined us. The home provided plenty of space for the six of us to sprall out and enjoy family time watching Alburn beat Alabama in the final seconds of the 2013 iron bowl. Because we have only stayed at the home during the off season months, we have not had the opportunity to utilize the beach area but we have enjoyed the covered back porch and the seating on the dock. Our boys, who follow there fathers fishing abilites, tried there best to catch fish from the dock but made no gains. During both our reservation requests, the Ramsey's where very accomodating and were quick in responding. They obviously have a great love of family and we are very grateful they share there beautiful home with ours."

  • Great home for friends ringing in the New Year!

    "The owners are super accommodating, kind, and quick to answer any questions. The house, specifically kitchen, was even more well stocked than I imagined it would be. The home was clean and there is a ton of space. This home is perfect for a group of friends or multiple families. The fifth bedroom, which we didn't use, was actually two rooms in one which would be ideal for a family or a room full of kids. Since it was winter time we didn't take advantage of any of the outdoor "toys" but the garage is stocked! We did use the fire pit which was perfect on the chilly days. The downstairs is awesome with several games and has a great kitchen with sink, refrigerator, and microwave. We appreciated all of the notes around the house detailing how to use things and what to do with trash, etc. This was our first time at Smith Mountain Lake, and we are so happy we chose this home! Such a fun experience!"
