Goodview House Rental Photos and Description

Lakefront 3 BR, 2.5 bath home with large deck and gameroom.

Enjoy your lake vacation in our beautiful 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home. Large, open floorplan combining kitchen, dining, and living room overlooking the lake. A first floor game room with laundry and a half bath, two bedrooms on the main floor, and a loft master with ensuite bath and jetted tub!

Imagine waking up to longwater views and enjoying your morning coffee out on the deck surrounded by peace and tranquility. For breakfast, either fix it your self in the fully stocked kitchen designed specifically so you catch the full view of the lake while cooking on the electric, flat top Jenn Aire stove, or call in a hot breakfast order and pick it up at Diamond Hill General Store, a short 5 minute drive away.

Spend the day fishing off the splinterless Trex dock, sunbathing on the dock's upper level, or swimming in the warm, clear water of the lake. Hop in the canoe or paddleboat and explore the shoreline without all the boat traffic of the main channels. Or if you brought your boat or jet ski, there is an extra slip in the dock just for you! (If you didn't bring a boat or jet ski, rentals are available at the marina about a 20 minute drive away).

Anyone up for a game of ping pong or foosball? Try out the ping pong or foosball tables in the game room for a bit of fun, or to pass the time while doing laundry. (A full size washer and dryer are in the laundry closet of the game room).

Perhaps you'd rather go in to Bedford and explore the little antique shops or head to the marina to people watch and feed the catfish. Either direction, it's about a 20 minute drive.

After watching the sunset, head out to the drive-in (yes, an actual drive-in movie theater!) with a full service diner! Of course, if you'd rather watch a movie at home, select one of ours or grab one from the Red Box at the Food Lion (10 minute drive), pop it in the Blu Ray player to watch it on the large 3D flat panel television while relaxing on the oversized L shaped sofa in the great room!

Winding down for the evening? Take a nice long soak in the jetted tub in the master suite before climbing into the comfy, cozy, king size pillow top mattress bed. You'll drift right off to sleep. And don't worry about the rest of the family, they will have their own queen size pillow top mattress beds to sleep on!

About The Owner

Jeff and Kim live in Virginia and built this house as a vacation home for their family. Both of us have family spread all over the United States and we wanted a place where our children and other family can come once a year to gather and reconnect. Kim is a 'military brat' who learned early on that 'home is where you hang your hat'. Having moved around from state to state and country to country during her childhood and most of her adult life, Kim wanted a permanent place to 'hang her hat', Roxy Park is that place. Jeff originally hails from Chicago and also moved around due to his father's job. He settled in Virginia over 20 years ago and has never looked back. Jeff fell in love with Smith Mountain Lake the first time he visited and convinced Kim that it was the perfect place to build a vacation home. He was right!

Kim is a novice stained glass artist and you will see several pieces of stained glass that she created in our home.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Smith Mountain Lake

Jeff wanted a vacation home at Smith Mountain Lake since the first time he visited the lake. Convincing Kim took a bit longer than he expected, but standing on this lot at dusk and watching the sun set across the water convinced them both that this was 'THE' spot. We originally designed the house on a napkin, then on graph paper, and finally had the plans professionally drawn up so that a builder could make our dream a reality. The home has surpassed our expectations and we never tire of that view.

What makes this house unique

Can't say enough about the view! The all glass front of the house allows us to take full advantage of the view from nearly every room in the house. The oversized dock is a family gathering place and allows us to all enjoy whatever it is we love to do best while being together. It's not uncommon to have sunbathing, fishing, book reading, canoeing, and jet skiing all going on from the dock at the same time!

Wonderful time at Roxy Park

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous vacation at Roxy Park at Smith Mountain Lake! The house was wonderful - we spent a lot of time at the lake and hanging out at the great boat house. We swam and fished off the dock and took advantage of the canoe and paddle boat. When we were inside, our family was playing ping pong, board games or working on jig saw puzzles. We rented a boat for the day from Bridgewater Marina and explored the lake. It was exactly the kind of vacation we were hoping for and we really appreciated the beautiful and comfortable environment that Roxy Park provided.

So enjoyable to pull up to. Gives you a sneak peak at what is to come.

  • 5 of 5

The views were amazing. The house was super! We will be back. It has everything you need for a great vacation. The lake was perfect for swimming and paddle boating. We enjoyed the canoe a ton! Felt like we were on our own private lake. Thanks to the owners for being amazing and answering all our questions and offering up their home for others to use.

Beautiful setting at Roxy Park

  • 5 of 5

Jeff and Kim your lake home is very nice and beautiful. It had every thing we wanted in a vacation rental. The views from the living room at sunset were straight out of a magazine. We also enjoyed the dock. It was big enough for both boats . And the upper sun deck was also very comfortable. We would recommend this rental to anyone vacationing at Smith Mountain Lake. Jeff & Kim were quick to respond to any and all questions. We look forward to staying there again in the future. The O'Donnell Family

Fantastic week of family fun

  • 5 of 5

I can't really say much more than what others have already said. The house was great, filled with board games, Xbox, 3D movies, satellite TV, etc... The house was very clean and welcoming. The dock with hammock was so relaxing. We had a great time in the canoe and paddleboat too. Very close to the Diamond Hill Store and about 10 more mins to the bridge so everything was pretty close. The Doner's always kept in touch and always answered the phone when we had a question. They have obviously spent a lot of time and money making this house what it is today. We can't say anything negative and look forward to returning.
