Abundant Peace; Lakefront House with Dock and Canoe

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Located on the end of a quiet cove with little boat traffic, the home has a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and dining area which seats six and a cozy living room with a 27 “ TV with VCR/DVD player. A sun room extends off the living room. A deck overlooks the woods and dock. A full bath and a large master bedroom with a king size bed complete the upper level.

Downstairs is another full bath, a second bedroom with a queen size bed and a third bedroom with a twin over double bunk bed. The family room on this level has a queen size sleeper and another 27” TV with VCR/DVD player. Sliding glass doors open to the covered patio. A washer and dryer are located on this level.

The dock has room for your boat and PWC and there is a large party deck above the dock. You can take the stairs to the dock or walk down the gravel path. We've kept the rental price lower than most because there are a lot of stairs to get to the dock and portions of the gravel path are steep.

A community area with a tennis court, 2 pickleball courts, a basketball area and a large open field with a volleyball court is across the street.

Crystal Shores Marina (formerly the Smith Mountain Yacht Club), a state boat ramp, several marinas and the state park are close by.

Location, Location, Location!: The house is conveniently located across from the R-27A marker which is between Halesford Bridge and the SML State Park. The Halesford Bridge area and Bridgewater Plaza are about 5 minutes by boat and 10 minutes by car. Here you will find several restaurants, shops, game arcade, miniature golf, and an ice cream parlor. There are also several marinas in this area that have fuel and rent boats and jet skis. The State Park is about 10 minutes by boat and 15 minutes by car. It features a boat dock, sandy beach, concession stand, nature tours and plenty of open area. The Westlake area is about 15 minutes by car and is inaccessible by boat. It has a Kroger grocery store, CVS pharmacy, several specialty shops, more restaurants and a movie theater. A new Food Lion grocery store is only 5 minutes from the house.

More Features: The house is located on the end of a quiet cove with few waves and very little boat traffic. My kids love to swim and fish off the dock and there is a canoe available on the dock so you can float around the cove or paddle around the lake. There is a 10' X 20' floater for docking your boat or jet skis. Directly across the street from the house is a large open community area that is great for soccer, football, kickball or Frisbee and can be used for overflow car or boat trailer parking. A fenced multipurpose court is also located here and my sons and I play tennis and throw the lacrosse ball here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay was from the 9th of April to the 20th of April, 2009. My wife and son had a really relaxing time. The weather was pleasant with no cold or hot days. We are from Roanoke and just wanted to be together as a family and God really blessed us. The home was clean and felt like our home. I myself work all the time and needed this break. It was very peaceful here and would come back again if possible. I will close with this, my family and I pray for many blessings to the owners of this home for making it available. May God bless you always.”

Abundant Peace

  • 4 of 5

We stay here while we were looking for a house. We enjoyed this lake house, its was very peaceful and a great place to relax. Smith Mountain Lake is a beautiful place and the people are very nice. Chris the owner of the house was very nice and easy to work with. We would highly recommend this house to stay. We would like to thank Chris for all his help and information that he gave us.

We loved it!! House was bigger then we thought.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and our stay. The water level was really low so it made docking a little more difficult and the doc was really slick after the rain.

Great place for a long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4th of July weekend in this home and had a ball. The house is comfortable and spacious, with room for everyone. The kitchen is a great size for cooking dinner and we loved having access to the grill.

With the house being right on the water, there is no reason to get in the car. The dock sits on a quiet cove, which offered privacy and peace on such a busy weekend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to return!

Great place on the lake, close to it all

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Abundant Peace. On arrival, it was very clean and nicely decorated, and everyone was very happy with their room and their bed. The dock is on a cove off an arm of the lake. Once you get out of that arm, you are maybe a half mile from Bridgewater marina, which is one of the places my kids like on the lake, so it's quite close. By car, most stuff in Moneta is about 10min away, so that was good too. We had a great time canoeing with the provided canoe and then toward the middle of the week, we got a jetski on craigslist from someone else on the lake and after that, it was all a blur, but the dock at Abundant Peace was great to tie up to.

We grilled on the backyard bbq, and when cooking inside, we found the house very well stocked with cooking utensils and spices.

When it was time to go, we cleaned up, and were happily surprised to see that Chris sent back our damage deposit the very next day, which is exemplary for homeaway.

So, in summary, it was nicely furnished, spacious, close to the fun stuff on the lake, and the owner was honest and easy to work with.

Awesome Smith Mountain Lake rental home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely rental home on Smith Mountain Lake. You can read all the property details from other reviews and the VRBO listing, so I just want to add a few comments. I have rented many vacation homes, in many different states, and traveled all over the world. My experience with the owner, Chris, was second to none. You will not find a nicer guy to deal with. We had a wonderful stay and my son's wedding could not have been nicer.
