About Heather Turner

My husband, originally from virginia, and I, raised in Pennsylvania, met during our college years and married just after graduation. We purchased this home in 2010. Our growing family and changes in employment have caused us to choose a home closer to work in Roanoke.

Heather Turner purchased this house in 2010

Why Heather Turner chose Smith Mountain Lake

When looking for a home to call ours we needed to find something in between Lynchburg and Roanoke since he and I worked in those cities respectively. When I saw this house I fell in love with its charm. I knew I wanted to call it home. Now we can't part with it.

What makes this house unique

We love our home because of its tranquil feel both inside and out. The windows are so large that you feel like you're outside while you're sitting on the couch.

The house was very spacious and comfortably accommodated our family of eight.

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious house that accommodated our family of eight. We did not use the fire pit, grill, decks, or kayak. Our schedule was busy with traveling and graduation schedule. There were a few things that could be upgraded to make the stay a little better. A new grill would be nice. The grill was pretty rusty with a very loose lid. One bed headboard was not attached and was leaning against the wall with a rag behind it. Another bed was a sleigh bed with just a mattress on it. This bed needs a box spring. The bed set low and uncomfortable to get in and out of. I personally kept losing my pillow off the end of the mattress behind the headboard. We did not use very many dishes, so we hand washed what we used. As we prepared to leave, the dish washer was opened and we found dishes in it. These dishes may have been from previous renters. These things I have mentioned were very minor issues for our stay, but would be nice for an upgrade for a better experience. The house was nice and in a quiet area. If we were there for more of a vacation, we would have used more of the amenities. Overall, we had a positive experience and would return for another stay.

The house was amazing. Perfect getaway before the new year, I would suggest this house to anyone looking for a a break. It was perfect and the homeowners were there at every turn for every question we had. Honestly I can't rave enough about this house. Will likely visit again during the summer.

Great Thanksgiving getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this SML home. The house is well equipped and we found plenty to do. Lots of great places to walk and enjoy the scenery, had a fire and made S'mores with the kids and made a Thanksgiving meal for the family. I'd recommend being prepared with your groceries and necessities as the store is a bit of a drive. Friendly neighbors too.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! I agree, it is pretty secluded in the way of stores.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful home - spacious enough to hold 7 adults, but with a homey feel. The house is equipped with games, tv's, a kayak and much more.

The bedrooms are large and there are plenty of bathrooms. A deck overlooks a wooded area.

The only negative was the mattress was lumpy in the upstairs bedroom.
