Beautiful home and location!
This was our 4th summer visit to SML and this was by far the best house we have stayed in. The house was well stocked with everything we needed and was SUPER clean. The diving board was a huge hit for the kids. Beautiful sunsets on a fairly quiet cove. It was a perfect week!
Great! Clean! Lovely!!!
We loved staying here. The house was in perfect condition when we arrived. It was clean and ready for a fun filled week at SML.
We don’t have anything negative to say about the place. Beds were comfy, kitchen was equipped, the lot was nice and level and perfect for our small children. The paddle boards and kayak were a hit with them. We would love to return as soon as we can. A lot of our evening time was spent on the nice screened in porch.
The Strongs were responsive and thorough when answering any questions we had. Check out was a breeze.
Thank you very much for your thoughtful and positive review; we are so happy you and your family enjoyed your stay! And thank you for leaving the house in great shape when you checked out ... we very much appreciate that!
We hope you're able to make your way back to Smith Mountain Lake for a future vacation; and we hope you choose to stay at our home again!

Beautiful property and wonderful stay!
As soon as you drive up you can see the dock and beach in the back yard. The lot is huge and beach is larger than it seems in the pictures. It was great for the kids who couldn't swim yet and they could touch the bottom and walk around. It made playing in the water much more enjoyable.
The house was recently updated and it was very tastefully decorated. It was everything we needed to have a comfortable week. The location of the house is in the back of an old plantation so the houses next door weren't right on top of you and it was very quite. The neighborhood was great for morning walks.
The owners were very easy to reach and even notified us of a thunderstorm warning to make sure we were safe.
I would HIGHLY recommend this house for a family with kids and if you don't have a boat. We used the paddle boards and kayak every day and my husband was able to fish from the dock. I would definitely stay here in the future.
Thank you so much for your positive review; we're so glad you had a wonderful stay! It sounds like you made great use of all the amenities ... including the beach, which is so much fun for younger guests. And you hit on other features that we really love about the property, too ... like the large lot and quiet neighborhood!
We hope that future vacation plans bring you back to SML; we'd love to have you as return guests!

SUPER CLEAN HOUSE and AMAZING DOCK!
Everything about our vacation and stay at this property and SML was PERFECT!
The owners were easy to work - very informative about the area and of their expectations of caring for their place which was very easy to do. Other VRBO owners leave you with very lengthy checklists which leaves you a little stressed and unsure. Craig and Amanda kept things simple which we appreciated!
The house was newly remodeled and was very clean. For our family of 6, this house wasn't too small for us. Everyone had their own bed and multiple spaces (living room, kitchen table for games, screened porch) to relax in. It had everything we needed plus a huge board game selection our kids loved.
The fantastic part of this property is the flat yard out to the very large dock and sandy beach. Our kids spent HOURS playing on the beach and jumping off the diving board. The dock was large enough for our family of 6 to relax in chairs plus all our 'stuff'. We brought our own boat and there was plenty of dock space to tie it up.
We would definitely make the 15 hour drive from Wisconsin to this property again!!
Ellen - thank you for your review ... and very positive feedback! We are so happy that your entire family enjoyed their stay at our home. The features you highlight are what we enjoy most, too. Thanks to your entire family for taking such good care of the house ... we very much appreciate that. If you ever find your way back to Smith Mountain Lake, we'd love to have you as guests again!

What an awesome place! Peaceful and beautiful.
This is our first vacation to Smith Mountain Lake, and it won't be our last! Amanda was so welcoming and checked on us to make sure things were ok. The house was clean and comfortable. The bedrooms were spacious, the bathrooms were a little small, but overall the house was beautiful and had everything we needed. The screened in porch was very nice in the evenings, and the large deck with the grill was great for cooking out. The property is on a large point with an awesome boat dock, and a small sandy beach! We used the paddle boards and kayaks provided around the quiet cove nearby. We rented a boat from the marina and had a blast boating, tubing, fishing and swimming around the lake. All in all, we had a wonderful vacation! Thank you again Amanda for your hospitality and sharing your lovely home with us!
Peaceful, great location, loved the dock
Book this house! Stop sifting through all the others and stay here. We had a great stay at Amanda and Craig's lakeside retreat. The house was clean, updated and well appointed. No carpet which we loved. Beds comfortable and plenty of towels available. We spent most of our time playing in the large back yard and swimming in the lake. The boys enjoyed jumping off the diving board and we all had fun on the paddle boards and kayaks. The owners remained accessible but we never needed to get in touch with them during our stay. We would stay here again if we made it to the lake again. Only a small suggestion...no ice trays ( we bought ice at the local convienence store) and there wasn't a chopping knife. Otherwise the kitchen was very well appointed. Loved our stay! SML is a great lake btw!!
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you so much for your thoughtful feedback and suggestions ... they are very helpful as we want all our guests to experience a relaxing and fun stay at our house! If you ever plan to vacation at SML again, we would love to have you stay at our house!
