Spend days enjoying the serenity of Smith Mountain Lake, Va, the

Jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Enjoy the breath taking view of

the lake from my home. This lake front property has one of the best lake views on the lake. Located in a small cove, this cozy two bedroom cottage has a large deck and an enclosed porch, both with a view of the lake. Maximum capacity of the house is four people. The property offers a boat ramp right next to the property. Property comes complete with boat docks and access to the water for swimming.

Happy Memories

We had a very good time at the house and we would come back again but there are some issues that should be addresssed. First the house could use some updating and that would only benefit the owner because there would be a greater likelihood of repeat rentals. The bathroom has no electrical outlets and the toilet is one of the smallest I've seen. An ADA toilet should be installed and replace the existing one which doesn't flush very well. If you're 50+ you are not going to like this toilet. Trust me. The mattress in the large bedroom was comparable to sleeping on a carpeted floor. I spent a few years in the Marines and I can sleep just about anywhere but that mattress just plain hurt. Small investments would reap big returns. The view of the lake was great and during the week it was very quiet outside of the occassional motorboat. The weekends of course were much more active. We were located on the east side of SML and it was remote. If you are a city or suburban person who is used to having amenities close by it will come as sort of a shock. It was a 20 minute drive to any sort of civilization on the west side of the lake. It was a trek I became very familiar with over the course of a week. After a day or two you pretty much had seen it all. The bottom line. If you and your spouse are interested in shopping, lots of dining choices and tourist attractions then this isn't the place for you. If you are interested in swimming, fishing, boating and pretty much staying put then this would be good for you.

Outstanding Location

A great property tucked into the less crowded portion of Smith Mountain Lake. House has a great yard that slopes down to the water in a cove near the bottom of the lake. In addition, a perfectly sized dock is a part of the property that allowed us to tie up our rented boat, which is a must for your trip to the lake. The dock also has some deck furniture so you can relax near the water. The home also features an outstanding deck with chairs, a table, and umbrella that we found provided perfect views of the lake during breakfast and dinner, and there was a gas grill conveniently located near the front of the property under the shade of a large tree. While inclement weather was spotty during our trip, we were able to use the indoor patio that provides nice refuge from the rain. The inside of the house is simple, but definitely meets all of the needs for four people with two bedrooms, one full bathroom, a living space and kitchen that has all the normal amenities (no dishwasher, however). Overall, the location can't be beat and the outdoor amenities of the property really make this home stand out. I would highly recommend this property to friends and family looking to enjoy all that Smith Mountain Lake has to offer.
