About Caroline Young
My husband and I reside in the Northern Virginia area. We have three children. My husband has lived in Virginia all his life. I was a military child and moved every 2-3 years. We love SML (Smith Mountain Lake) for its beauty of blue water and scenic mountains. My children love when the ice cream boat visits. We have built many memories here.
Caroline Young purchased this Townhome in 2010
What makes this Townhome unique
This townhouse is located on a quiet cove perfect for swimming and fishing. Close proximity to the dam. Three levels of comfort provide privacy and space. It is away from the busy part of the lake. Mitchell's Marina is in walking distance and is the perfect place to see the the sunset and enjoy a cocktail. The marina also rents out pontoon boats, as well as tubes and Kayaks. Other Nearby attractions: SML State Park 8.9 miles Downtown Moneta 13 miles Hales ford Bridge/Bridgewater Plaza 16 miles City of Roanoke 38 miles D-Day Memorial 27 miles NASCARS's Martinsville race, held twice a year, is about 1 1/2 drive Booker T. Washington's and Jubal Early's childhood homes are a short drive from the lake. Charlottesville (Monticello and University of VA) and Blacksburg, VA (Home of VA Tech) are just two hours away.

My family had a wonderful long weekend at SML, and we HIGHLY recommend Shangri-La! The home is clean, welcoming, and modern with loads of space and a stunning view of the lake. In shopping around, I found the rental rate extremely reasonable. We had 4 adults and 2 toddlers, and we did not feel cramped in the least. Caroline, the owner, was extremely responsive to my many questions and promptly returned our deposit.
We rented a pontoon from Mitchell's Marina, which is close to the home (5 min dock-to-dock, in the boat), and had the most amazing day puttering around SML. If you are looking to rent a boat, Mitchell's is THE place to do it! Friendly, professional, great customer service and a tasty restaurant to boot!
Only 2 things I would note, and neither would necessarily be considered a negative, just good things to know: (1) There's no internet. If the weather's nice, no big deal, but on the chance of rain, you may want to pack some extra entertainment if you have kids. The tv does have full cable. (2) It's a bit of a drive (maybe 20-30 min?) if you want to head into a town to get groceries/find entertainment. Again, the remoteness is probably what most people are looking for, I add this only for information purposes only. There are a couple small convenience stations within 10-15 minutes.
My family loved our stay at the Shangri-La!!
Thank you for the wonderful review. Hopefully you will be able to return next year.
Beautiful view, Wonderful home!
We had an amazing time at Smith Mountain Lake and at this home. We had 5 adults and one child and this home was the perfect size! We loved the views and the location was really easy to find when were out boating. The house had everything we needed and was clean and well maintained. We would love to come back in the future.
Thank you For the the great review. I'm glad you had a an amazing time.
Perfect lake house for a getaway on Smith Mountain Lake!
Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a house on a lake
Thank You! Glad you enjoyed it.
Our family had a great stay. Home was immaculate upon arrival!
Perfect home for family and perfect sunsets. Furnishings are up to date and in great condition. Location- Location- Location!
Friendly neighbors and great outdoor space with dock and Cove.
Owners were just terrific and very responsive.
Highly recommend in every way!
Thank You! So glad you enjoyed your stay at SML.
The Townhouse is very comfortable and convenient. Close to Marina and the lake is out your back door. It very nicely equipped with furniture and kitchen items. We had a great time.
Thank you for the great review!!
Beautiful townhome situated for spectacular sunsets!!
I was initially hesitant about renting a townhome versus a single-family home but we couldn't have been happier with our stay. The home is beautiful with every amenity that you could want. It was very cozy, everything was sparkling clean! The icing on the cake was the situation of the home for sunsets. I was dozing in one of the recliners and actually woken up by the entire room turning bright orange!!! By far the best sunset we have ever seen and it lasted about 45 minutes! Amazing! The owner was very accommodating and if I had a question I received a response nearly immediately. I would absolutely rent Shangri La again and have already recommended it to many friends.
Thank you Julie!!! Glad you enjoyed your stay.
