Large Comfortable House with Perfect Dock

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent three weeks at this property in August 2016. The house was very spacious it was really nice for the parents to have a separate space on the 3rd fllor upstairs (private) and for the kids to be downstairs and also have a hangout in the basement. We spent a lot of time eating dinner outside on the porch. There is a grill right there perfect for summer meals. But we spent even more time down at the dock . I think this house has one of the best docks at Smith Mountain Lake . We rented a boat from Mitchell's point marina which also is a fabulous thing to do . We parked the boat at the dock . We read in the chairs at the dock -we kayaked And swam at the dock . We spent time eating at the table at the dock as well. This house has three refrigerators which is also great . The refrigerator at the dock was convenient for kids soda and adult drinks. This house is also very walkable or boatable to Mitchell's point marina which has a great restaurant . Excellent pizza and music on Friday nights . We also will had fires at the fire pit at the house and the kids had Smore's many evenings. This house was exactly what we had expected and in fact probably exceeded our expectations. Smith Mountain Lake was one of the best vacations we've ever had I highly recommend this lake and this house.

The only caution I would have is that this house has very limited Internet. There is Wi-Fi but it's not a dedicated line. We have AT&T ourselves and got a fine signal on AT&T and found it easier to just use our AT&T signal as a hotspot rather than try to figure out the house Internet .

Some of the things we did at Smith Mountain Lake include swimming kayaking hiking at the state park swimming to the islands and exploring the islands , finding the rope swing near the dam, boating to restaurants, pulling a floats behind the boat for the kids , Jetskis rented from the state park, visiting the wineries and the breweries Reading relaxing cooking and also pulling out some old school board games!

Highly recommended!

Well maintained and clean!

  • 4 of 5

The house was great for our family! Beds were comfy and there was plenty of space for everyone. Unfortunately, we were there during a record heat wave and the air conditioner did struggle to keep the house cool. It did cool down overnight. The fire pit was great for s'mores but the heat limited that activity! Dock is great! Plenty of room for everyone and the tiki bar was a plus! We could store all of our beverages and snacks to limit trips back up to the house. Plenty of "noodles" and some life jackets. Kids loved rowing about in canoe!

It is difficult to find houses without a hill from house to dock and this house has one! Not the toughest hill we've seen but enough of a climb to think twice about making the trip down and up! (The intense heat could have also been a factor). Limited shallow water for little ones and, unless they were willing to jump into deeper water there was no "easy" way in or out of the lake. View from house is great but the dock is directly across from a row of boat storage and, being in the cove limits view of lake at that level.

With that being said, we agreed that we all liked it enough to return......hopefully with some cooler weather!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying ! Yes all the homes with the heat and the humidity struggled that week... It is hard for any home to keep up with that heat ! Thank you for noticing all the great things the owner has done . They constantly update and more , so those beds are newer and that fire-pit was installed a couple of years ago. We hope to see you again soon , maybe when it is cooler - so you can get those smore's in next time !
