About Gwen Danner

My family lives in Atlanta, Georgia. I enjoy working as a high school counselor.

Gwen Danner purchased this house in 2016

Why Gwen Danner chose Smith Mountain Lake

After an extensive "lake house search" nothing I found compared to Smith Mountain Lake. It is quickly becoming a wonderful meeting place for my family that lives both in the north and the south.

  • 5 of 5

This house is a true gem and has everything you need for a relaxing weekend by the lake. The beds are super comfy, there is everything you need to make a meal, and plenty of spaces to sit with family and friends. Thank you to Gwen for making us feel at home! I will definitely be coming back and would recommend this house to anyone looking to stay at Smith Mountain Lake!

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our family trip of 6 adults and 4 children - 4, 6, 8 and 11 years old. It was perfect for us! We all thoroughly enjoyed the paddle board, kayak and canoe, and the kids entertained themselves in the game room for hours at a time. The house is on a quiet cove and the views are beautiful. Highly recommend!

We have been visiting the lake for 20 yrs now and love it! This house was very comfortable and had everything you could need! It is located on a private cove which was a plus for just hanging around playing in the water. The owner is very responsive and definitely made our stay enjoyable. Love the lake, loved the house, great memories were made. Thank you!

Family vacation with 10 folks between the ages of 3 and 71. The layout of the house was perfect and the furnishings were superb. I would recommend this property to anyone. The view is spectacular and the furnishings are beyond expectations. Our family had a great time.

Impressive outdoor space. Great, quiet experience

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for my wife's recent graduation from Longwood University. While we were only there for 2 nights, we took full advantage of all that the house had to offer. From the beautiful dock seating area, to the paddleboards, kayak, and canoe, to the hot tub and ping pong table, we used our time outdoors to the fullest. The house is nice, and much larger than it appears from the outside. A lot of updates have been made, including a beautiful renovation to the kitchen. We really loved all of the hard surfaces, since several of those that stayed have indoor allergies.

I would definitely recommend this house as a great getaway spot for families looking for some fun on the lake. The floating dock makes it easy to hang out and get in and out of the lake.

Smith Mountain Lake State
Car: recommended

Among the lakes water activities are power boating, kayaking, 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 paddle wheeler, or visit an alpaca's 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 Visitor's 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 visitor's centers and a multitude of outdoor activities. Do not 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.
