What Value for the Price!
"We have been to SML the past 3 years and paid much more than what we paid for Alford's Getaway! As the other recommendations explain, it is clean and exactly what you see. Other than a steep walk, get ready for a relaxing week with everything you need. Even the walk has a paved driveway rather than hundreds of steps like other places. We enjoyed the kayaks, quiet cove and had close access to the bridge/marina by boat or car. Food Lion is only 5 miles and one turn by car. Betty kept us up to date as the trip approached and responded within 24 hours to all of my emails. We highly recommend Alford's Getaway!"

"Nothing short of AMAZING. First, I would like to say, the kindness and hospitality shown to me by the owners was outstanding!! They were very personable and they expressed their happiness for my family as we celebrated my mother's graduation from Liberty University. All the hotels were sold out and I am glad because we struck gold in finding - AT EASE. The home and surrounding area was so beautiful. The home was so amazing, it was clean, updated and fully functional. From enjoying the view of the lake, to playing pool and watching movies (they have a huge collection), to cooking on the grill and watching the sunset on the dock, my family had a blast and we look forward to staying there for years to come!! I have already recommended the owners and home to friends and family! Thank you for making our weekend magical!!!"

"This condo was huge. We had a large balcony, dining room, and a very big living room. Sleeps 7 comfortably when pullout bed is used. Well-stocked kitchen and gas grills on each side of the property allowed us to save money by grilling at night and eating in. The positive to this side of the lake is peace and quiet. The only negative is it's not close to anything if you need something. The closest convenience store is about 12 -15 minutes. It closes at 9 pm on the weekends, but has gas and live bait. If the condo had wifi, my teenage kids would've rated it perfect. I was fine with no Internet for a week, but I would recommend taking a printout of all marina, restaurants, rental places, etc with you. Understand that 90% of these places are on the other side of the lake (30 min drive minimum). The shape of the lake makes road and especially water navigation very challenging. Have a lake map with reference numbers and a good GPS app on your phone. The dock at this property where we fished, ate, swam, and just hung out was awesome, too.
We will definitely return to this location."

"What a great vacation home with incredible views of the lake. Our family visited for a few days to escape the horrendous winter in western NY. The house had everything we could need and Kathy and Spike were the most hospitable hosts I have ever met. Our children and dog loved the lake and the spaciousness of the house and property. Thank you for a great mini-vacation and we definitely look forward to returning sometime soon. Unfortunately, we did not have a chance to take a fishing trip, but that will hopefully be in the plan next time. Once again, many thanks and take care until next time."
