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 Huddleston

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.

Wonderful lake home - even in the winter!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home provided a perfect location for our extended family to celebrate the holidays. It was frigid outside, but the hot tub and fire pit allowed us to still enjoy the great location on the lake. Inside, the abundance of game options kept everyone entertained. The kitchen was well-stocked and made meal prep so easy. Lots of space for 10 adults to come together for family meals and fun (and spread out when we needed a break!). Owner provided all information timely and made the rental process so easy. I would definitely recommend this property.

Just wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a absolutely wonderful weekend, the property had everything we wanted, we enjoyed spending time on the kayaks and paddle board and just swimming in the lake. We spent all our time outside on the dock, I don't think the TV was turned on for more than 5 minutes the entire weekend! I especially liked that it was in a quiet cove and not a lot of boat traffic since we had young children playing in the water. The house was clean, with all the amenities we could want, the kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed our dinners on the deck overlooking the cove. We loved doing s'mores left for us as a welcome over the fire pit. It was a great house. We definitely want to return next year. Thank you Gwen.

Great property!! Responsive owners.

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this property! The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you need! Has a true "home away from home" vibe. Water toys, hot tub, and game room offer something for everyone. I organized a trip for my mothers 60th birthday and all 9 ( yes, nine) women were extremely pleased with the house and its amenities.

very nice

  • 5 of 5

everything was nice and the property was in very good shape . to never have been in the area before getting there was slow going but once we got there we had all the comforts of home. I would recommend this property to anyone. Thanks from the Nicholson family.

Fabulous lake house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect lake house for our family. The cove is quiet and we thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities (paddle board, kayak, hot tub, fire pit, etc.). The kitchen is very well-stocked and the game room/TV room was a great hangout for the kids when they needed a break from the lake! Thanks for a great vacation and we hope to be back!!

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!

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.
