About the property

Tranquility Cove is a spacious lake house with a nice cabin feel, set in a private and peaceful cove. It offers a wonderfully relaxing setting, but still conveniently located (just 10 minutes by car or boat to Halesford Bridge) and to the many of the other amenities that Smith Mountain Lake has to offer. There is a fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer. Equipped with three bedrooms, two with walkouts to lakeside decks, and each with its own adjoining full bathroom. The property offers an easy walk down to a large private dock that offers a great mix of both sun and shade. The no wake cove itself allows for safe swimming, floating, fishing, as well as, use for the provided canoes, kayak, or jon boat, all without disturbing wakes or the noise of boat traffic and jet skies. Nevertheless, the cove is still only a short boat trip out to the main parts of the lake. Outside the house is a gas grill and outdoor seating on both the open deck and the screened in porch to take in the lake views and serenity of the wooded cove. There are also two fire pits, multiple hammocks, fishing equipment and outdoor games available to enjoy. Within the house, you will find two stone fireplaces, a rec area with ping pong , bumper pool, darts, and card/poker table, as well as, many board games and table games .There are also two 50" HD TV's with satellite service, a DVD player with a large number of DVD's, and an N64 gaming system with games. Free wi-fi available. We sincerely hope you get the opportunity to enjoy all the wonderful aspects that Smith Mountain Lake has to offer, and certainly hope you will consider our property to do so.

About Jessica Kleinhen

My name is Jessica, I am 27 years old. I purchased this vacation home with my dad, stepmom, and fiancé. We frequently have vacation at lakes together and absolutely fell in love with Smith Mountain Lake when we visited for the first time. A few years had gone by and we decided we would look for a vacation home to enjoy year after year and whenever we wanted to. We all went in on purchasing the house together and have loved every minute of it. We hope you all enjoy it like we do!

Jessica Kleinhen purchased this house in 2017

Why Jessica Kleinhen chose Moneta

We enjoy fishing and canoeing, leisure activities. This home is perfect because it is set back in a cove, yet close enough to easily get to the main parts of the lake! The minute we walked into this house we knew it was perfect.

What makes this house unique

Screened in porch. Easy access to the lake. Canoes and fishing spots.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We came for a short week vacation to celebrate our second wedding anniversary. Some family also visited two nights. Everyone agreed that the place was perfect! The owner is very responsive and helpful and the home itself is gorgeous with a perfect lake view. We enjoyed playing games, spending time on the screened-in porch, and fishing on the dock. The location is perfect as well, with restaurants and shopping not far. Would recommend this beautiful place for anyone!

The house is amazing

  • 5 of 5

We live in Arkasas and our daughter’s family lives in NY . We decided on this property to meet our new granddaughter, it was a perfect spot. We all enjoyed our stay very much, the house is very comfortable and roomy . We loved the two fireplace , screened in porch(my favorite) and all the games provided.The only negative is the steep incline to the water, however; the weather wasn’t nice enough for any water activity at this time of year. We would absolutely stay here again.

Beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

This is a gorgeous, spacious home with lake access. The weather did not cooperate with us (we had snow during the first weekend of March!) but we had a nice time anyway. Our family has young adults, and this home offers lots of spaces for privacy and quiet conversations. We enjoyed the dart board and game area downstairs. We played many card games around the downstairs game table. We brought our own, but there is a nice supply of games to choose from, too. We were surprised that the little cove is shared by several other homes, but this did not affect us. Be aware that there are a lot of steps, and a very steep slope leading to the lake. The dock is spacious and sturdy, and offers shade that would probably be great in the summer. Jessica was responsive to all of our questions. This is a very nice home!

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate the weather didn't cooperate with your trip, but it sounds like you still enjoyed your time and were able to take advantage of some of the amenities we try to provide, some of which are specifically geared toward the possibility of any inclement weather. We hope the walk down to the lake was not in any way an inconvenience for you, but due to the topography of SML virtually all properties have some degree of slope to the lake and those familiar with the lake would certainly not characterize ours as "steep"; our property is in fact comparatively much more gently sloped than the vast majority of the properties throughout the lake. Thank you so much for your feedback and for choosing to stay at our property!

Excellent affordable getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing my family and me to spend the weekend. I wish we could have spent more time. There was so much to do and you didn’t need to go anywhere to have fun.

Car: necessary

This vacation home is the perfect spot to bring your family, significant other, or friends. We are set in the back of a cove, very private and calm. Far enough from the main part of the lake to enjoy peace and quiet, but a short drive to the grocery stores, wineries, hiking, shopping, and boat marinas.
