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.

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.

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.

We had an AMAZING stay. The house was extremely spacious and accommodating for all of us. The owners were extremely nice and very responsive... We are thinking of making this a yearly tradition! Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Needs better cleaning

  • 3 of 5

The house is cute, on a steep hill. Disappointed in no toilet paper (was included), no towels in bathrooms because they were in the washer and dryer. One bathroom wasn't cleaned and another half done. We won't rent again due to cleanilness.

Owner's Response: We are sorry for your bad experience. That was the first time a cleaning service had prepared the house for a guest. We won't use them again. Thank you for your feedback.

Outstanding!! Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect and exceeded expectations! The owner was wonderful to deal with and the property has a great layout! I would rent this place again in a second. The listing description was accurate. Upon arrival the property was clean and ready to go. There is a boat access that you can walk to and swim. At first I was worried because I thought it might be busy, but it was not at all. It was perfect for swimming and there was no traffic. A great get-a-way!
