About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Fantastic Waterfront home on Smith Mountain Lake. This home features 3 bedrooms with 2 master suites. Located roughly in the middle of the lake area in a wide deep cove you are close to all of the action yet still isolated enough for simple peace and quiet.

Enjoy the sunset views while gazing out over the cove and the main channel. Plenty of good fishing and water sports for everyone. No one has a bad time around here.

Our dock with its party deck is included in your rental. Whether you want to spend the day in the water or just relaxing on the party deck this home has it all. For the 2017 rental season we have added a new floating dock. Corn Hole and 2 kayaks and paddles are included in your rental fees for your enjoyment.

The home has 3 bedrooms each with a full bathroom and outside access to either the upper or lower deck.

We take pride in keeping the home clean and everything in working order. All furnishing are in nearly new condition and specifically selected for your comfort.

To insure a pleasant environment for all our guests smoking is not allowed inside the home.

Alfords Getaway on SML - 2 Master Suites - Dock- Deep Cove-2 Kayaks !!

Comfortable, clean home on very steep site at Smith Mountain Lake

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay at Alford's Getaway...quiet, peaceful and close to everything one would need for a lake stay..We took my 76 and 80 yr old parents with us and Mom could get to the dock with much help down the very steep hill but Dad could not get down to the dock at all...

We ate meals at the house most nights and found that the stove would not heat at the selected temperature and that the ice maker in the fridge made very little ice... There is also no electric can opener. I think though that these are minor issues easily addressed.

Though we knew going in that there was no wifi-that option would have been very nice...

This is not meant as a negative evaluation at all..The home is clean and comfortable and the bathrooms are great..I do not really like the option to evaluate as "not really" enjoying our stay because we did enjoy the home and surrounding area very much!

Owner's Response: I am sorry your stay at our home was not as pleasant as we would like for you to have. Our goal is for everyone to have a terrific time at our home. We do ask that our guests let us know immediately if there are any problems. This is the first time I have heard anything about the stove, the ice maker and a can opener. If the stove and ice maker are not working properly that is something we will definitely check out. If you had called or texted us and let us know there was a problem we would have come immediately to correct it. We did have an electric can opener in our home; however, if there is not one in our home now, someone must have taken it. It will certainly be replaced. There are very few flat lots on the lake that is due to the fact of how a lake is made. Our lot is considered a gently sloped lot and we feel that having it paved makes it easier to walk up and down. We are sorry you had a problem. Betty and Harold

We always enjoy our time on SML

  • 4 of 5

Over the past 10 years my husband and I have been visiting the area, renting lake front homes. The Alfords Getaway is in the perfect location placing us in close proximity to all of our favorite Lake spots. The home is well appointed and one of the cleanest homes we've stayed in, which always makes the time more enjoyable. When we weren't cruising around to our favorite spots, we spent our time on the back covered porch, which felt like home away from home. The dock was relaxing as well, and offered a nice amount of seating, which is unusual when renting. Betty was very accommodating and available when we needed to reach out. We will definitely rent again in the future.

Wonderful peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay this past weekend for my graduation from Liberty. The house is exactly like the pictures. The lake is beautiful. There were 3 deer in the front yard the first morning-just sitting down resting. Amazing. Food Lion grocery isn't far away. Loved having 2 master bedrooms one for my husband and I and one for my brother and sister-in-law. Perfect. Didn't get to try the 2 person jetted tub in our bath but we definitely would like to next time. Everything is very clean. Has Directv satellite so all our favorite channels. No wifi but we survived LoL.

Wonderful and relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend at Alford s Getaway! The house was spitlessky clean when we arrived, the kitchen us well stocmed, the beds are comfortable and the lake us beautiful. Plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 small children to be comfortable. We loved lounging on the deck with coffee in the morning and a drink at night. Betty is attentive and quickly responds to all emails or text messages. Highly recommend, we will be back!

Great place for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean, well supplied kitchen for your cooking needs. Owners were very attentive if you had a question Betty responded right away.

Betty even went as far as sending the neighbor over with an air pump for the kids tubes because the house didn't have one. So nice.

We fished, kayaked, swam, relaxed, watched movies, played board games & hung out on the dock & made great family memories.

Spring Break Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Alford's Getaway for our spring break. The home is exactly as pictured and was exceptionally clean. It was very comfortable for our family of four with room to spare. Our only suggestion would be adding WIFI to the amenities. This home is very close to two local wineries and local restaraunts, boat rental, shopping, etc. The dock is great for fishing, kayaking or just hanging out. We would definitely stay here again!
