Beautiful and Relaxing Spot

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The view of the lake is great, the cove is quiet, and the house is really nice. We brought our two kids (ages 8 and 5) and they loved it. The house has plenty of room, the beds are comfortable, and the outdoor space is amazing. We really enjoyed the fire pit and hammock. We brought our ski boat and appreciated the easy walk down to the dock (which you don't always get on Smith Mountain Lake). The dock has plenty of space and is in good shape. The quiet cove was nice - I didn't have to worry about my boat getting beat around the dock by rough water. The location on the lake is great, with good restaurants and marinas nearby. Food Lion is a short drive away for anything you might need. The owner was very responsive to all our questions or concerns.

A few tips - Don't rely on GPS directions to find the house, as you'll probably end up going down the wrong street. Stay on Hickory Cove Lane and look for the address - it's a shared driveway. Linens aren't included (as with most SML rentals), but we used a linen rental service and found that to be very convenient. The house is at the bottom of a hill, and I made the mistake of towing my boat down the driveway to the house to unload our stuff. The trees near the driveway made it tricky to get the boat turned around to head to the launch ramp, and backing it up the hill would have been a headache, so if we stay here next year I'll launch first.

Overall, this is a nice house in a great spot. With most lake homes you have a neighbor right on top of you, but this place really feels private.We truly enjoyed our week here.

Nice house on lovely peninsula

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week staying at this house. Except for linens, paper products, and food/beverage, everything was there already. Great response from the manager. Secluded, quiet, house, deck, fire pit, and private dock let the outdoors be where we spent most of our time.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

The property is a hidden gem - as advertised.

Activities: We had 3 kids with us and four adults and loved making s'mores at the fire pit. We rented a boat and landed at the dock; the dock was also great for jumping into the lake for some easy swimming. We read books in the hammock and stared at the stars above at night. The kitchen had all the necessities (though we also had some of our favorite knives, spices, etc. that we brought); we used the grill several times.

Things to keep in mind: pack SHEETS and TOWELS, we almost missed that in the posting. As mentioned in other reviews, make sure you look for the small signage on the road that tells you where to turn - the GPS system may otherwise drop you at a neighboring address instead, but they are friendly.

Interactions: The interactions with the manager were seamless and he usually replied within 10 minutes.

Great location and beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! The location is great and the views are spectacular. Loved the fire pit! Just wished the linens, towels, some toilet paper and some paper towels were included... especially for the price that we paid... But overall it was a nice getaway.
