About Tim and Pam Hahn

My wife and I are childhood sweethearts and have been married for 40 years. We have 4 children and 11 grandchildren. We are a very close family and enjoy our lake house with our kids all summer. We are both professionals. I am a pilot and my wife is a nurse. Our place is impeccably clean as we have high standards .

Tim and Pam Hahn purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Tim and Pam Hahn chose Smith Mountain Lake

It has always been our dream to own property on a beautiful lake. Both of us grew up vacationing on lakes, but the beauty of Canada was our favorite.... until we moved to Virginia. We can truly say that Smith Mountain lake has ALL and more that Canada ever had! The water temperature is so perfect and it is so clean that we hate getting out. Our grandkids always say "The worst part of going to the lake, is going home." The fishing is great! We have caught up to 6 pound bass right off our dock and so have our guests! The neighborhood has such great amenities; a great pool, beach and the lake is only about 300 feet from the house. We have done a lot to it to fix it up so that others will feel the 'AHHH' factor as they come in and relax. We have tried to put all the finishing touches in our cozy apartment that we would want when we go on vacation.

What makes this apartment unique

What we loved about our home are all the amenities that come with this lake front community. There is a nice beach and a very crystal clean pool right up the street. For those who love swimming in the lake, this part of the lake has the cleanest water anywhere and the fishing is great! We have caught many bass and catfish right off our dock. If you are a knowledgable fisherman, there are lots of great striper and bass just waiting to be caught. The property comes with guest dock if you bring your own boat or rent one during the week. The dock area beside our boat is huge and a great place to swim off of because it is 25 feet deep there. Boat and jet ski rentals are just a walk around the corner at Mitchell's point marina. There is also a restaurant there that is quite good.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you for the warm welcome we received upon arrival, the cookies were as good as they smelled. We are enjoying all the attention to detail that you have given your home. I love your tea cup collection and all the beautiful wood work on the furniture in the downstairs bedroom. Each room is so uplifting as you walk through them. Thanks for a well equipped kitchen and a fun dining area.



The dock is great and having the pool in between boat activity is great! We will go on line and for sure rate this "lake house" 5 STARS!!!



We also enjoy that this is a non-smoking home and for keeping the price affordable. Thanks again for this blessing to all of us this week!!

Smith Mountain lake is known as the 'Jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains' and is truly just that with 20,000 acres of beautiful shoreline, majestic homes and the beautiful Smith mountain. There is no better lake in the mid-atlantic region for boating, fishing, skiing, canoeing and kayaking. Within walking distance of our home is a marina with a lovely lake view restaurant and power boat, house boat and jet ski rentals. There are several well known fishing tournaments on the lake and this year a record citation striper (45 pounds) was caught right around the corner from our home. We have some of the best catfish and bass fishing right off our dock and the ability to catch your own live bait right there as well. The home is located within an hour of Roanoke and it's many attractions. Lots of restaurants can be found there as well as a zoo, and plenty of shopping. Roanoke boasts a wonderful outdoor water park, 'splash valley' that is very affordable. Lynchburg is also a short distance of 45 minutes away and has year round 'snow skiing, tubing and snow boarding' at Liberty Mountain snowflex centre.Just about every restaurant can be found in Lynchburg as well as more great shopping and of course the infamous Liberty University and Thomas Road Baptist church. Only 40 minutes away is Bedford, a lovely bedroom community that boasts antiquing, quaint restaurants and D-Day memorial. Also nearby is horseback riding, wineries, the blue ridge parkway and the wonderful Peaks of Otter park with it's many hiking trails. The hike up to the top of the peaks is great exercise and the view is like none other! Our daughter recently came across a black bear and her 2 cubs on her hike there. Mariner's landing which is 10 minutes away has an award winning 18 hole golf course! Maybe one of the greatest things to do is to explore one of the many islands on our lake. Most of them have campfire rings...so take your hot dogs and s'more fixings and make a campfire on the islands with the ample fallen wood. Swimming in the nearby mountain inlets is very private and fun as well. The list goes on and on with things to do in the area.

  • 5 of 5

We definitely enjoyed our stay. The house was very clean. We had a very relaxing few days. There was a grill on the patio that we used several evenings. We loved spending time down on the dock and floating out in the lake. The owners were very friendly and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this property and we will be visiting again.

We LOVE this place.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed a short getaway weekend to unwind and this was the PERFECT place! We loved it and would highly recommend it This apartment is comfortable, very clean and has anything you need during your stay. Bed is really comfortable and we loved the sheets used on the bed. Amenities are great too, from the warm cookies to the mints on pillows to the little cups in the bathroom, they thought of everything. Pam and Tim are awesome hosts and will do anything to make your stay enjoyable and trouble-free. S.M.L State Park is only 5-10 minutes away. We brought our bikes and took them to the park to get some exercise. There is a restaurant and a place to rent boats, kayaks, etc within walking distance. We hope to be back again soon.

Owner's Response: Wow! It is so nice to have guests notice even the quality of linens used on the bed! We try to think of what we would want in a high class stay and it is so nice to have those things appreciated! We try really hard to be a "cut above" so that our friends will want to come back. You guys were great guests and it was so nice to talk with you and get to know you a little, Kathy! We look forward to you coming back very soon! Thanks for noticing the little touches that we provide and taking such great care of our space.
