About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10, Huddleston

Summer Lane is an incredible waterfront property. Our home was just completely renovated with a brand new 16 x 40 second floor deck. Take in the amazing view of the lake as you sit in our Marquis Hot Tub with LED lighting and waterfalls. You will love the view from the deck and hot tub as you can see for miles. The dining area seats ten and has a gorgeous view of the lake. You can see the lake from almost every room in the house. The swimming area is ideal because we are located in one of the only no wake coves on the lake. Serve food and drinks from the cabana on the dock where there is plenty of seating in and out of the sun. There is a large floating dock for your boat, or wave runners and lots of space on our stationary dock. Enjoy exploring the lake as you cruise the shoreline in our three complementary kayaks and paddleboard. At night enjoy the lakeside fire pit area to roast your marshmallows. Every detail has been taken care of, and the quality of the home, appliances, and furnishings are unmatched. The expansive kitchen is fully equipped with all new small appliances and everything you would need for that special meal. There are actually three refrigerators for your use. Enjoy the downstairs where your family can chill and watch TV or battle it out in a family tournament of foosball or air hockey. Enjoy the bar area where there is another refrigerator and sink. You will find Wi-Fi throughout the home. This home offers 5 bedrooms and three bathrooms also completely updated with new vanities and furnishings. Located off the main channel of Caddock’s Creek you are protected by the no wake cove but only a cove away from the most beautiful part of Smith Mountain Lake. The location is ideal and only a short drive to restaurants, boutiques, and grocery stores. We are one minute from enjoying the State Park Beach and attractions. Memories you make at Summer Lane will last you a lifetime!

About Nancy and Charles Barrall

My wife and I are natives of New Jersey. I work for Foley Caterpillar in northern New Jersey and my wife has been a school teacher in southern NJ for over 20 years. We have five children ranging from 17 to 27 and treasure each and every moment we get to spend together. As the children get older they get busier with their own lives, and we wanted a place we could all come together and make memories to last a lifetime.

Nancy and Charles Barrall purchased this house in 2016

Why Nancy and Charles Barrall chose Smith Mountain Lake

It has always been our dream to own a home on a beautiful lake. My father rebuilt the cabin he was born in not far from Smith Mountain Lake and we have spent many summers enjoying Virginia. Nancy's father built a cabin on a lake in Maine when she was seven and we both grew up loving the outdoors and spending time with family and friends on lakes. We knew we wanted to find the perfect lake property for our family, but did not want to go north. After years of searching, we purchased our first property on the lake. We loved it so much when we saw this property with the wide water views and awesome location we could not pass it up and purchased our second home on the lake. This home has everything we had ever hoped for in a lake property. Our whole family can come and enjoy our new home for years to come. We can't wait to have grandchildren some day come and spend time at the lake. We love the no wake cove and that adds the extra protection we are going to need someday for our grandchildren. Our cove is quiet and serene, but just a short distance from all of the action on the lake. The water is crystal clear and unlike Maine much warmer! We are so excited to share our paradise with others and have gone to great lengths to make everything perfect for our guests!

What makes this house unique

What we love most about our home is the location. We don't have to worry about getting hit by a jet ski or speeding boat. The location of the dock is perfect for a sunrise view in the morning but allows our deck to be in the shade at night when we want to sit outside and relax. At night our favorite thing to do is lay in the new hot tub and look at the stars. The stars on a clear night will take your breath away. There is so much room to spread out in the home and no matter how many people are there you do not feel like you are on top of each other. All of the pillows and bedding are brand new and everything has been redone both inside and out. One of our favorite things to do is kayak and paddleboard. There are so many beautiful locations and coves on the lake to explore. We love the nature that surrounds our home, and know that you will enjoy all that this home has to offer. We really feel blessed by God that He has allowed us to own such a beautiful home, and hope that we are able to bless others as they spend time together with their family and friends here at Summer Lane.

Everything You Could Want & MORE!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! It was just as the pictures and description indicated. The kitchen was equipped with high-end appliances and every gadget desired....AND 3 REFRIGERATORS!!!!!

The beds were new and very comfortable. I was in the basement room, and it was surprisingly quiet. People were talking on the patio outside the window, and only slight mumbling could be heard.

Our family enjoyed it all: the long table for meals and games, fire pit, hot tub, kayaks, paddle board, and a stunning view. There was something for everyone. I cannot imagine there being a better choice on the lake.

Thanks, Nancy. We LOVED it!

Fantastic Home good for Any Weather!

  • 5 of 5

We were bummed when we heard it was going to be raining our entire stay however with this home, the covered patio under the deck is perfect for rainy weather. Also the hot tub on the deck was great even in the rain as well. We didn't get to use our boat as much as we would have like but did try out the paddle board and kayaks. Home was in great shape and was worry free with everything we needed being in the home! I would certainly recommend this property and will be returning soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. I am so glad that we got the underneath patio done just in time for your visit. It really is a nice addition to the property. I was thinking it was good to stay out of the sun, but you reminded me it is also good during the rain. I am so sorry you had a soggy weekend, but I am so glad you made the most of everything at the house. We would love to have you back again in the near future. Thank you so much again!

Beautiful view and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The views of the lake were perfect and we enjoyed them very much from the front porch, fire pit, and hot tub. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. We cooked great meals in the big kitchen. We drove 45 minutes to an awesome hike with really nice views (Sharp Top). Loved the house and the location. Would definitely come back!

This is paradise on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a wonderful weekend we just had celebrating our daughter's 21st birthday on Summers Lane. What a beautiful home. Total paradise lakeside.

Not only is the setting the best on the lake (beautiful views of the lake ) but the furnishings and amenities are abundant in this house. So many little things that make this house so special. From candles, wine and champagne glasses, soft rugs under your toes, soft comfy towels, hair dryers, video and board games ... Nancy thought of everything you could possibly need or want. The beds are more comfortable than the ones in my own house. They are plush and like sleeping on clouds! This house has everything you could possibly need on vacation or for a special occasion. The kitchen is incredible! Fully stocked with every appliance (3 refrigerators in all), two full ovens and all the cooking supplies you could ever need.

I have rented many vacation homes but by far and away, this house has it all. We did not want for a single thing.

The layout of the house is great for families vacationing together. All the rooms are beautifully decorated and very spacious. With the game room, bar and hot-tub, I don't think there is one thing this house doesn't offer.

It snowed close to 10 inches while we there. Nancy was so nice to check in on us and make sure we safe. We look forward to coming back in the Spring or Summer so we can enjoy the fire-pit and the lake it self. Words fail to explain what a perfect house this is. We really hated to leave and were disappointed when ours cars actually were able to get out of the snow!

Thank you Nancy. We will cherish the memories forever of our time at your beautiful lake house.

That is a special celebration! We would love to have you again sometime and thank you again for your kind words!!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was well appointed and spacious. We had three generations celebrating Thanksgiving and this was perfect. There was plenty of room for everyone, a large kitchen for cooking, and game area downstairs for the kids. We also spent a lot of time outside enjoying the lake view. We enjoyed fishing at the dock, went out in the kayaks, roasted marshmallows at the fire pit, and relaxed on the oversized deck (with hot tub!). Nancy was great to work with; I was amazed at the speed of her responses and she always seemed happy to talk with me about our stay. We hope to return soon!

Smith Mountain Lake State Park

Among the lakes water activities are power boating, canoeing, sailing, parasailing, swimming, fishing water skiing, wakeboarding, and jet skiing. SML's lakefront includes six free public boat launches and more than a dozen marinas where you can find the perfect boat rental for your visit. Power boats and wave runners can be rented at several locations on the lake, including: Bridgewater Plaza Marina (Boats can also be picked up at the State Park), Parrot Cove (Parrot Cove also rents Kayaks), Parkway Marina (formerly knows as Saunders Marina), Mitchell's Point Marina or Virgil Naff Sea Doo (wave runners only).

The closest boat launch and boat rental is Mitchell's Point Marina. Off water you can enjoy sightseeing that includes many spectacular views of the lakes mountainous 500-mile shoreline. Five challenging golf courses surround the lake. Smith Mountain Lake State Park includes miles of hiking trails and breathtaking views. To view the lakefront scenery and homes from the water you can cruise the Virginia Dare, a 19th century side paddlewheeler, or visit an alpacas farm on the lake. If you love fishing you are in the right place. Bassmaster rates SML among the USA's 25 best bass lakes! You must visit the SML's Dam Visitors' Center to see an awesome presentation that shows how the dam was built and what the area was like before the dam. There are three entrances near the lake to the Blue Ridge Parkway where you can visit eleven plus visitors centers and a multitude of outdoor activities. Don't forget to stop by Booker T. Washington National Monument. It allows the public to see what slavery was like and how the plantation system worked. There are many other local attractions like Appomattox Court House, Hickory Hill Vineyards and Winery, Science Museum of Western Virginia, and Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest. This is the perfect location to spend quality time with your loved ones.
