Great house with dock looking at Smith Mountain & lake. Perfect set up for us with # of BR's & baths. Nice private yard, beautiful home & great views! Easy walking on street, close to state park & marina at end of parkway. Saw deer walk thru property every day & nite, caught large mouth bass at dock & a few blue gill & sunfish with worm lure & worms. Great one level living with long deck off kitchen/living room with perfect view of Smith Mountain & lake. Very comfortable beds, chairs & furniture.

2017 vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Ramsey's home is lovely and spacious and they were great to work with in scheduling our trip. Smith mountain lake is beautiful and to be in the lake right from the yard is great. Our 5 year old grandson loved swimming in the lake.

Ramseys Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful view from the back porch. Fishing was great, neighbors were nice and the water was just right. The floating dock was a hit with our children. The room was plentiful and the landscape was pretty.

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.
