Lake Fun

  • 4 of 5

Our week at the lake was fantastic!!! Loved the gentle slope to the water and the gradual entry into the water. Having the boat ramp was really convenient. I would love to come back here next summer.

I do have two suggestions/complaints.... you NEED DOCK FURNITURE!!! You have a great dock but no dock furniture. Also, since we can't use the lift ( I understand it's due to insurance) the dock could use more cleats for better tying up of the boat. It can be very busy on the weekend and the boat takes a beating. Hopefully someday those that are willing to sign a waiver (and have been boat owners with experience using the lift) will be lucky enough to use your lift.

Thank you again for providing a great place to relax and enjoy our week at Smith Mountain Lake.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Allure. Thank you for including Allure in your vacation plans! We can definitely add a couple more cleats to the floater dock to assist in tying up the boats. (We continue to work with the insurance company on the lift issue, but have had no success as of yet.) Each year we do provide several chairs for use on the dock. However, they don't usually last very long. With the storms that can blow up suddenly on the lake, if the furniture isn't placed the shed, most of it gets blown off the dock into the lake and floats away. The rest gets beaten up pretty badly by the wind, and then thrown away. That is why the (heavy) bench is there for your use. We will continue our search for heavier dock furniture that is still lightweight enough to be stowed in the shed when not needed, so it will be available year-round. Thank you for your suggestions. We always strive to improve your stay at Allure. We hope to see you back again!

Beautiful house with gorgeous lake views

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week long stay for 4th of July week. The house is absolutely amazing. It seemed like every door and window had a lake view. The grill on the screened in porch was the source of almost all of our dinners and the well stocked kitchen made it so we didn't have to worry about heading out to the food lion often. The lot is gently sloped so the dogs were able to play on the lawn. We have rented several lake houses and this is really tough. The dock was perfect for swimming and relaxing and the water was deep enough to jump into (which we did a lot). They also have implemented trash service, which may not seem like a big deal but lugging your trash in your car to a county dumpster was probably the low light of previous trips. We vacation at SML every year and will definitely be back next year.

Absolutely loved it

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place for 4 nights for the NYE and the experience was amazing. Every little details was looked into. The house is very modern and right on the lake. The picture are beautiful but in person, it was so much more gorgeous. The hot tub was perfect and so were the bedrooms. The kitchen was well equipped and the grilling was very convenient in terms of the location.

The only issue was that the nearest grocery stores was good 20 minutes away and we went during the most off peak season due to which most wineries were closed. But regardless the house was so beautiful that I would come back again despite the remote location.

Everything that was promised!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about Allure! We rented Allure for a few days this spring to get away and try a little fishing. We opted for the linen rental and believe me, having the beds made when we checked in (very late and very tired) was a blessing. We spent several nights in the hot tub relaxing with a glass of wine and just enjoying the sights and sounds of the lake. (The bottle of local Virginia wine waiting for us on our arrival was a welcome treat!) The kitchen was completely stocked and the gas grill on the porch was very convenient for those times we didn't want to eat out. Allure was very clean and very inviting. We will definitely be back for a longer stay in the future!

Beautiful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was so beautiful and cozy. It really was a home away from home. Everything about it was relaxing and gorgeous. The lake is lovely, the deck is great to sit and look out onto the beautiful water. Overall a wonderful experience.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend the Allure for your next vacation rental. My husband and I and our two dogs had a fantastic time at this lovely vacation home. When we arrived and stepped through the door, we felt as if we were home. Everything in the house was clean, neat and so warm and welcoming. The owners have attended to every detail and really care about their renters comfort.

We loved all the windows with the gorgeous views of the lake, loved the fully stocked kitchen and comfortable dining area, and loved the yard and boat dock. But, my favorite place was the screened porch. Every morning I enjoyed my first cup of coffee of the day sitting on the porch with my puppies and watching the sunrise. I already miss the house and the lake, and we are looking forward to our next visit.

Thank you John and Chris for allowing us to share your wonderful lake home.
