Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I had a spectacular time at this property. The house was equipped with everything my family and I needed. More than enough space for everyone to be together or have a moment to their self. The views are amazing. I wish my stay was longer. I will definitely be going back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review. We are glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. You are welcome to come back anytime. Offseason rentals are very laid back and relaxing but you should really come in the summer when the water is warm enough to enjoy for swimming, boating, skiing, and fishing. Thanks again for staying with us and come back soon!!

House is great. Dock not real conducive to swimming. No floating dock. Good location.

  • 3 of 5

Loved the house. Kitchen had ants. We had to keep food on dining room table. Otherwise it was nice but can do better for the money.

Fabulous House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I vacationed here for my father in-laws 60th birthday, I can say that this house will exceed all your expectations. It is stunning and Don the owner was very easy to work with and let us check in a few hours early. We hope to plan another trip here next year and we will definitely be staying at Gillum's Getaway.

Wonderful lake house

  • 5 of 5

We once again chose to stay at Gillum's Getaway for our annual lake trip. As always we had a great time and the house was a perfect fit for our family. There is plenty of space to spread out and give everyone the room they need. The view of the lake is beautiful and the location is one of our favorites on Smith Mountain Lake. We will definitely stay here again.

a great week at the lake

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week at the lake! The property was in a great location and we very much enjoyed the dock and outdoor deck!

A few suggestions would be to remove the rug from the front entry as it was a tripping hazard! I would also like to see either plastic or smaller drinking glasses for the children. The refrigerator was missing either 1 or 2 glass shelves which made for creative stocking, since there is only one refrigerator. We also didn't know to bring trash bags or toilet paper.

All in all it was a great week at SML!

The house is beautiful! Has everything you need!

  • 4 of 5

The reason for the 4 stars is because on the 4th day we had no water. The owner believed it was our fault because we had used too much water at one time. We explained that we had not used the washer or dishwasher at all and we had taken showers hours apart. He did have someone come out and fix it that very morning.

Another reason for the 4 stars is because of the ants! They got into all the pastries we had on the counter and we had to throw it all out!

The home is located on the north east side of the lake in Bedford County. It is 7 miles to the state park which has a beach, marina, hiking trails etc. It is also only about 3 miles from a wild life management area which is open to the public for hunting, hiking, wilderness camping, bird watching etc. There are lots of marinas close by so that you can rent boats or jet skis if you don't have your own. We have a community boat launch in our neighborhood. There are wine festivals in the area several times a year, and concerts at the state park.
