About Roslyn Foreman
My husband and I love the outdoors and built Covered Porches in 2004 with that in mind. Its porches and covered dock allow us to relax and enjoy being outside even when it rains. We have been responsive to the needs and wants of our guests and have made improvements, major and minor, each year. We hope you enjoy Covered Porches as much as we do. We manage our vacation home rental so providing excellent customer service is our top priority. If you need assistance with boat rentals, sightseeing excursions, or anything else, please ask.
Roslyn Foreman purchased this House in 2004
Why Roslyn Foreman chose Huddleston
Covered Porches is located on the East side of the lake and we chose this area because of the privacy, large lot and beautiful sunset views. It's tucked in a cove great for swimming yet has a wide water view which opens up into the Roanoke channel. Directly across the lake is Bernard's Landing . The State Park is 2.5 miles from our home.
What makes this House unique
The porches are wonderful with their ceiling fans and comfortable chairs. The dock is covered so that when it rains or is too hot, we can still enjoy being outside. There are ceiling fans and comfortable chairs on the porches as well as the dock. The fireplace off the Master bedroom is perfect for those cool evenings. A fire pit is available. 1/2 mile from our home is Parkway Marina where boat rentals are available. Smith Mountain Lake State Park is 2.5 miles from our home, great for hiking, playground for kids.

10+ with a view!
Fantastic house, view, owner, EVERYTHING!!! It just doesn’t get any better and the price is very reasonable for what you get. I can’t wait to go back in the Fall.
Covered Porches is a great vacation home! Beautiful home, beautiful view! Well stocked kitchen!!! We had everything we needed to enjoy a long weekend at Smith Mountain Lake!
I gave this home 5 stars, would give more if available.
We’re so happy you enjoyed Covered Porches! We hope you come back during another season so you can enjoy the dock, canoes and kayaks!
Thanks Again- Roslyn
A beautiful home. Perfect for a winter get away with friends
Perfect fit for us, 5 couples and two babies, to stay over NYE. The house is wonderful, gorgeous and had everything we needed. Beautiful spot on the lake. It was too cold to enjoy much of the lake (though the guys took the canoes for a spin just to say we did it). However the highlight of our stay and the best part of the house was enjoying the great room with high ceilings, a wall of windows looking over the lake and a roaring fireplace. Couldn't have picked a better place to have a friend reunion.
A Happy Thanksgiving
We stayed at Covered Porches for our annual Thanksgiving family get-together. We have rented homes for this event for the past 10 years and this home was one of the best. The area is very quiet and the view of the lake is amazing. The living area is spacious which helped our group of ten not feel crowded. There were plenty of amenities; the kitchen is well stocked with dishes, small appliances and pantry items. Anything we felt we needed for general living and maintenance of the home was available to us. The outdoor fireplace/fire pit and the availability of the canoes were an added bonus. I would recommend Covered Porches to anyone needing a lake house for a group.
The pictures don't do it justice! Perfect for watching sunsets and relaxing!
Beautiful spacious home
Great home, great location. The home is clean and well maintained. Kitchen is more than fully stocked. Pictures don't do it justice!! We will be back!
Thank you Neil! So happy you had a great time and liked our home. We look forward to having you back!
