Many type of wild life keep the excitement going, as well as fishing off the dock. For nature lovers there is SML State Park, Blue Ridge Parkway, & the Peaks of Otter w/ a wide choice of hiking & bike trails to choose from.

You can take a ride on the Virginia Dare to see the lake while dinning for lunch or dinner. The area is rich in history. You might want to visit the Booker T.

Absolutely beautiful, relaxing home!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home for our vacation spot because of previous reviews and the pictures, we were not disappointed! The home met all of our needs and then some! The kids had an amazing time out on the lake, in the paddle boat available for use. The stunning views from the deck were incredible to wake up to and even more beautiful to end the day with!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent the Easter weekend with our family at Ramsey's Retreat. What a beautiful location...from morning coffee on the porch overlooking the lake, to easy paddle boat rides in the no wake zone along their shoreline, our family enjoyed this special retreat. Affordable nearby boat marinas made it easy to rent a boat for the day and explore the beauty of Smith Mountain Lake. Booking, communication,arrival/ departure instructions & returning our deposit...were all done with promptness and care, making our experience with Ramsey's Retreat one that I would highly recommend.

Fabulous Experience!

  • 5 of 5

What a blessing to happen upon Ramsey's Retreat! When a last minute opportunity came up, we searched for a mountain home with a view, and found this gorgeous place. No ordinary vacation rental, this is a fantastically appointed home in a gorgeous location, with breathtaking views. A huge great room/kitchen/dining room has a warm and cozy gas fireplace, plenty of comfy seating, cathedral ceilings, and hardwood floors. Between the dining room, kitchen, and bar seating, you could eat in a different spot every night. A soaking bathtub, roomy shower and double sinks round out the master suite. There are 2 other bedrooms but we barely set foot in them, because we could barely tear ourselves away from the huge back deck, boat dock, and morning deer sightings. Be sure to set your clock early enough to watch the eerie fog blanket rising from the lake, as the sun crests over Smith Mountain. The pictures and words barely do this place justice. The Ramseys met us there, gave us a quick tour and shared a few local tidbits, then quickly vanished to leave us to our romantic weekend. We highly recommend Ramsey's Retreat for couples, families with or without kids, reunions with friends, or any combination of happy people you can think of! We will be back!

Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ramsey's Retreat for a getaway weekend with friends. It was perfect for us! A beautiful view from the wonderful deck all across the back of the house! It was so quiet and relaxing! It was an easy walk down to the dock with chairs there as well. Sitting on the dock with our morning coffee, you could see fish jumping out of the water! All amenities in the kitchen that you would need. It was very clean, beautifully decorated and just a comfortable home!

Beautiful views and more

  • 5 of 5

Ramsey's Retreat is a great lake house with an ideal location, plenty of space to stretch out and relax, and top notch amenities including a sandy beach area, boathouse on semi-private inlet, paddleboat, ping pong, darts, and close proximity to SML state park.

Our family enjoyed our week of swimming, BBQs, boating, and fun in the sun.

Convenient to Moneta (restaurants/Food Lion), and across the bridge to Bridgewater, movie theater, Kroger, etc.

Great week

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay at SML. House was great, everything we needed. Nice views of the lake from master bedroom, dining room and living room. John and Donna were awesome. Stayed for 6 days, rented a run-about for 3 of the days. Coming after Labor Day, we found a few lakefront restaurants closed but the reduced traffic on the lake far outweighed any small inconvenience finding lunch and a cold beer. For any new comers renting a boat, I suggest you invest in a waterproof lake map/chart ($7) like we did - we marked every marina that had fuel and every lakefront restaurant; we explored the entire lake without wasting time and without worrying about finding our way (the size of the lake can be a bit intimidating!). Would definitely stay here again.
