About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Cottage

Our second full season on rental market following complete interior renovation, new deck and new private dock!!

We've added a great new path from the house to he dock and updated electronics!!

Avoid the noise and crowds of condos with this two-story cottage; a wonderful lake retreat on a large, open cove on a spacious lot to the waterfront.

Enjoy beautiful clean lake water located on a large deep-water cove between markers R28 and R30. Let the kids go swimming, sailing, skiing, kayaking, canoeing or fishing for champion striped bass, all while mom and dad relax on the deck, patio, or covered dock. Dock your boat in our covered boat dock lift.

Our cottage has an expansive deck and lower level patio overlooking the lake. The main level has an open area for dining and relaxing with large glass doors open to the deck and lake views. In addition to the fully equipped kitchen and living area, there are two bedrooms and a shared bath on the main level. The 'Master Bedroom' also opens to the deck through large glass doors where you will enjoy great lake views each morning when you awaken!

The lower level provides beautiful lake views through the large glass doors leading to the lower level patio. It contains a large recreation/family room with an area for viewing TV or DVD's. The third bedroom, second bathroom and laundry room are located on the lower level. The lower level sofa folds out for an additional double-bed.

Enjoy dining and relaxing on the large deck, equipped with dining table and chairs, and a gas grill, and overlooking the expansive cove below.

The property is convenient by water or car to restaurants, shops, miniature golf, an arcade, movie theater, wineries, and museums - D-Day WWII Memorial (Bedford, 30 mins), Booker T. Washington (Moneta), Transportation, Science, Tubman Museum of Art (Roanoke, 45 mins), and Mill Mountain Zoo on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Excellent week at SML

  • 4 of 5

My family spent a week at SML in August. The home was clean, and everything worked properly. We spent most of our time on the deck and dock; both are relatively new and comfortable. The bathrooms have been updated. The kitchen is a bit dated, but very functional. The owner is extremely responsive. All in, a great value and a great week.

This is a nice, clean, well equipped home. Great for a stay at the lake

  • 4 of 5

The home was clean and well equipped. There is a monster hill leading down to a really nice boat house/dock facility where we spent most of our time. Plan well when you go to the bottom, because the hill will take your breath away going back up.

The dock was really well set-up, with areas for shade and areas to get some sun. The cove was lovely, some activity, but not crazy noisy.

The owners have done a nice job rehabbing the cabin, and it was very pleasant place to spend a week. I would go back in a heartbeat!

Beautiful views from the deck! Nice newer dock. So nice to find a place that allowed our 2 dogs!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The recent remodeling was very nicely done. It would be helpful to have better access to the water. The slope is quite steep and slippery especially with the rain we had. Some type of walkway would be much appreciated! Updating the tvs would be good and providing some wireless internet as well.

This home is in a great location, beautiful water front view and close to shopping and restaurants

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location on the lake! This house is furnished with everything you need from the kitchen to the laundry room. We spent most of our time on the deck or dock. The lake was wonderfully refreshing and clean. There's a couple of things you should know eg; the downstairs does not have air conditioning however it's a partial basement and had cealing fans. Also we kept the access door open and it was never to warm down there. And, the slope down to the lake is a little steep but not far. None of our family had trouble going up and down. The location is great! You're close to marinas, restaurants and shopping either by boat or car. The home has been renovated and is very clean. It was nice have two living areas both with satellite TV. We hosted a small birthday party for my mom. We created great memories and will definitely be back to stay at this home again.

Very nice property and close to shops/boat rentals

  • 5 of 5

The house and lake views were great. It was very hot Memorial Day and the AC worked well. We rented a boat for three days from Parott Cove Marina and the boat dock was was awesome. Actually the boat ride took less than 5 minutes to the dock and by car took 15 minutes. Food Lion and shops nearby for quick food runs. The property owner are reachable and fast to respond to needs. I would stay again perhaps in the Fall.
