About the property

1bd, 1bth with stunning views, Boatslip and private Wifi Included, Larger Unit!

Whether you need a romantic getaway for two, a family fun week at the lake, or a fisherman's weekend, Smith Mountain Lake & our penthouse condo has it all just steps from the water. From sitting on the deck watching the sunset over the water while enjoying your favorite beverage, to drifting off to sleep cuddled up in our crisp linens after a day on the lake - Come for a visit - fall in love for a lifetime!

Our condo is all about the spectacular view of Smith Mountain Lake and it’s cozy homelike feel. We are owners who are committed to ensuring you have an amazing stay. Walk in and feel like you are immediately on vacation! Newly decorated bedroom with Cottage Retreat poster bed with brand new Queen size Sealy Posturepedic mattress. We took extra care in creating a bedroom environment that would help you escape to dreamland every night! Whether you are walking around the beautiful property here or doing watersports all day on the lake, you will need your beauty sleep! Our linens are Egyptian Cotton and there are 6 pillows in the condo - 2 firm, 2 medium and 2 soft. This condo is CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN!

In the bedroom there is a 28 inch flat screen TV for catching the late show or for that day when you just want to snuggle in for that extra hour in the morning before starting your day. There are two bedside tables, a four drawer dresser and a closet for your belongings. Last few things we think are important (and we do try to think of everything), there is a lock on the bedroom door and a charging station by the bedside table.

Extra room in the bathroom, there’s no granite but it has all you need to feel the comfort of home. Fluffy, white bath towels that are the right size for grown ups and a bathtub for bathing the kiddos or for you. We have provided 4 bath towels, 2 hand towels and washcloths. There is extra counter space for all your toiletries and a hairdryer is provided for you under the sink.

In the livingroom there is a brand new Queen sleeper sofabed - that we personally slept on and sat on ourselves! No ordering off the internet! If we couldn’t get comfy on it, we don’t want it in our second home. Perfect for watching movies with the kids on the 40” flat screen TV while your other half prepares dinner in the kitchenette. You will not cook a Thanksgiving dinner in this kitchen but you can do just about everything else with a little patience! Full size refrigerator, 4 burner efficiency size stove (a little smaller than a regular, please see pictures) microwave and dishwasher. Appliances are not new. We chose to upgrade furnishes- but they all work fine. Kitchen has everything we think you could need for a vacation week. There is service for 8 so you don’t have to do dishes after each meal. (because doing dishes every night just doesn’t feel like vacation :) There is a Keurig because coffee is one of our favorite things, so please stop and grab some of your favorite K cups if you are coffee lovers. There is a drop leaf table with seating for four in living room along with a recliner and sofa. We have private internet and basic cable. Along with stocked DVDS for the Blueray player in the living room and a game shelf with the basics.

Last but not least is the deck! Plan to enjoy the tranquil sunset on the deck. It still knocks our socks off how breathtaking this view is - even on cloudy days, even when it rains - it is a site to behold. Do not be surprised if you see deer having their morning breakfast right from the deck. The deck is 9 ½ by 7 ½ . We have tried to provide games, books and movies in the condo for your enjoyment. It is our goal to provide the best 500 square feet we can.

You have full access to the whole condo and the entire complex that has a very tropical feel - one of the reasons we fell in love with Stripers Landing! If you're the water loving type, you can hit the Junior Olympic pool or kiddie pool (open Memorial Day through Labor Day) or take your boat out on the lake for some fishing or watersports. We have a boat slip on site exclusively for your use while you're a guest in this condo. Don't have a boat but still want to fish? Feel free to fish off the dock. At the end of the day, enjoy a nice meal at one of the nearby restaurants or make your own dinner in this condo's fully outfitted kitchen. There are also a couple gas grills down by the pool and a fully covered picnic pavilion.

We are nearby almost everything! Good restaurants with a variety of prices, grocery store, wineries, putt-putt, boat & jet ski rentals, good shopping, movie theatre, antiquing, beautiful country and lake scenery all close by. Willing to drive a ½ to 45 minutes and it opens up even more!

Our goal is for you to have a memorable and stress-free vacation. I will provide you with a comprehensive info email about Smith Mountain Lake which will give you lots of fun things to do in the area as well as recommended restaurants/activities. We want our guests to enjoy a very special time at the Lake. We recognize that some guests are very curious and want to learn as much as possible. Others are planning a romantic getaway and would prefer to be left alone. We provide as much or as little interaction as our guests may desire.

We will be available by phone and email throughout your stay. Please don't hesitate to ask for any help you may need and contact us if you have questions.

About Gretchen and Alan Reeson

We found Smith Mountain Lake by chance on one of our weekend getaways and fell in love immediately! We live in the greater Richmond area about 2 hours and 45 min. away. This is now our favorite getaway location all year round! Of course the lake and pool are amazing, but we especially like the grounds here at Stripers Landing. Taking a stroll after dinner along the lit pathways down to the dock and just enjoying the scenery.

Gretchen and Alan Reeson purchased this condo in 2017

Why Gretchen and Alan Reeson chose Moneta

We chose the Condo at Stripers Landing because it feels like you’re on vacation here from the minute you pull in and drive by the tennis courts. The property is well cared for and spotless. Grounds you want to take a stroll on and even the deer sometimes visit in the morning. You can not beat the view from deck and it is just the right size for a couple or a small family of 4.

The association also has some very good rules of conduct to help every guest have the best experience. Your adherence to the rules is much appreciated.

What makes this condo unique

We furnished the space for our family to use, so we took extra effort in maximizing the space and making it as comfortable as possible. We don’t want it to feel like a hotel, we want it to feel like our home away from home. With a brand new queen size mattress and sofa bed, they are both places you will love to lay your head. Little details like a charging station in the bedroom, travel coffee mugs for your daily journeys, insulated pool bag and a selection of games, books and DVD's, even fishing poles - we tried to think of everything we would want and provide it for our guests.

Spectacular lakefront condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded our expectations in every way! It is impeccably clean, extremely comfortable (superb quality mattress/pillows/linens/living room furniture), and delightfully decorated with a nautical theme throughout every room which maximized our enjoyment of its lakefront location. We rented a different condo in the same condo-complex on a previous visit to SML; in comparison, this penthouse condo is significantly larger and far superior. Everything in this condo seems to be very new and fresh, making it most inviting! We also appreciated the full size bathtub, spacious bathroom and plush white bath towels. I enjoyed the second tv in the bedroom. The boat-slip and boat launch are wonderful (and with parking down by the lake, we easily avoided some of the stairs to get to our boat). We were so glad that we selected this condo, and I highly recommend it!

Picture Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here at this cozy condo overlooking the lake! One night we stayed in and watched several good movies as they had a variety to choose from. The kitchen had ample pots and pans and dishware and the condo was impeccably clean. The owners were also very responsive to emails and they supplied a folder that had contact info and general info of the area. Thank you Gretchen and Alan!! :0)

Enjoyed Stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very cute, clean, convenient and quite well supplied. The best part was sitting out on the balcony with my morning coffee, watching the mist rise off the lake.
