Unfortunately, this part of the lake does not have high speed internet service.Most guests are able to use their cell phones as a data 'hot spot' to access the internet.

Rentals during prime season are weekly with a three night minimum all other times. A cleaning fee of $200.00 will be added to each rental, an accidental damage insurance fee of $79.00 is optional. Virginia tax on rentals is 12.3%.

Please note that linens and bath towels are included in the rental fee, as most SML rental homes require that the renter provide their own linens or pay an additional fee for linen service.


Saunders Point is a lovely older neighborhood with many year-round homes. It is ideal for walkers and joggers. Lake location is supreme, being near the mountain and the dam at the deepest, cleanest part of the lake.

Fabulous Spring Break getaway with family

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Harrington's beautiful home for one week during our Spring Break and both the home and Smith Mountain Lake generally exceeded our expectations. It was our first visit there but certainly won't be our last. The home is beautiful and well maintained and the location is idyllic. The sunsets from the deck are gorgeous and there is a great marina (Mitchell's Point Marina) a few coves over (3 minute drive and 20 minute kayak ride) where we rented both kayaks and a pontoon boat. It was nice to be able to tie the rentals up to the dock out back. We also enjoyed using the fire pit one night to make s'mores down by the water. We had a few family members join us for a couple of nights and the house comfortably accommodated all 8 of us. The beds are very comfortable, not typical of most rental properties, and the kitchen is very well stocked for cooking meals. A gem of a spot and we look forward to hopefully returning later this year when the lake water is warm enough for swimming.

My husband and I celebrated our 20 year anniversary at this beautiful home. We could not have chosen a more perfect venue. The weather, the home, and the hospitality extended to us was amazing. The home is lovely -- it is tastefully decorated and stocked with everything needed for a comfortable stay. We look forward to staying at this home again in the near future.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

The home was more beautiful than the pictures indicate. Beautiful, high ceilings and beams in the living area! The house had all the little items that you might forget to pack and the dock was also well equipped with refrigerator and many convenient supplies. We enjoyed the fireplace outside, the pool table inside and just had a wonderful week with our family. No one went away disappointed even though we had two cool days of clouds and breezes. Places to sit and enjoy the lake with awesome sunsets every night. Gorgeous home. Thanks.

Beautiful, Clean and Comfortable Lakefront Home

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the house is a home run. Perfect setting for a large or small family. The living and dining area is open and perfect for dining and family time, and where we came together to end our day after a long day on the lake. While the downstairs living area was also well designed and great for entertaining, the main level of the home saw most of the activity. The entire home is "well" decorated with a friendly atmosphere- beautiful. Easy access putting your boats/jet skis in the water as the marina is only 5 minutes from the house. The back porch and huge screened in porch (off the master bedroom) got a lot of evening use. Found myself and family members falling asleep more than once or twice on the rocking chairs. The owner is friendly and helpful, and responds quickly to any emails through the VBRO intranet. We absolutely loved the house.
