About Ken & Shelley Hetzer
Shelley and I have been married over 24 years and have always had a passion for enjoying a good get-away. In 2011, we decided to switch our stays at the ocean and head inland to a lake not to far from us. Needless to say, we fell in love with Lake Life! In 2014, we had some great friends of ours (co-owners now in a 2nd property at SML) invite us down to Smith Mountain Lake. While it was a bit farther, we couldn't stop thinking about how beautiful the mountainous lake was, the deep waters Smith Mountain Lake had to offer.
Ken & Shelley Hetzer purchased this House in 2015
Why Ken & Shelley Hetzer chose Moneta
Sunny Days captured our heart for a few main reasons: 1. Location, Location, Location - Sunny Days is moments away from grocery stores, restaurants, shopping and probably most important, Bridgewater Plaza (Home of the self proclaimed, "Family Fun Center". 2. Water Depth - Sunny Days off of the dock averages about 10' deep. This give plenty of depth for those both young and young at heart to not worry about jumping / diving in the water and getting to the bottom. 3. Water Location - Sunny Days is very convenient via water to both north and south areas on the lake. With SML having over 500 miles of shoreline, being centrally located allows for nice morning / sunset cruises without eating up your whole day. 4. Family Space - While there is plenty of room for your whole family to get together, we wanted a property that allowed those times when families want to spread out. Hopefully when you visit Sunny Days you will see the values we mention above and come to love it like we do each and every visit!

Great Family Vacation in July 2019
This is our 2nd summer at Sunny Days. It is a family ranging from age 4 to age 82. It is perfect for us. Plus our dogs are welcome. We love the dock. That is where we spend most of time. We bring our own pontoon boat and there is a marina across the street where we put it in the water. Will most likely return for a 3rd summer.
Excellent for large or multiple families
The screened porch was such a relaxing spot. We spent lots of mornings and evenings there. The home is very clean and well maintained. The location is perfect!!
Great house, good location
Had a wonderful time at sunny days! House was nice and updated. The dock is amazing with a good view. The driveway is a little tight if your bringing a large boat, but it's manageable if you know what your doing. Ken was very easy to communicate with and answered all our questions almost immediately. Overall had a great time and would recommend this house.
Wonderful view! Clean home! Peaceful and relaxing! Plenty of space for our family game nights and eating outside on a gorgeous evening! Will definitely do again! Thanks!
We stayed at Sunny Days for 4 evenings - my niece was graduating at Liberty University - about a 40 minute drive - not bad. The house was extremely clean, soft towels and the beds were very comfortable. This house was a perfect fit for our family. The main level was the living room (nice seating and TV) dining room (sat 6 at the table) and kitchen (every appliance, pot pan and dish that we needed) The two elder couples (which I guess I am -- in my 60's now !!) stayed upstairs which had a king and private bath and a queen with a bath that opened to the bedroom and hall - perfect. There were sliders off the dining and living room. We spent the mornings and evenings on the porch looking at the water. There also were two tables and chairs on the porch is where we ate dinner that we cooked on the grill.. Down stairs there were two bedrooms and a bath with a game room and large TV - perfect for the younger group. There was a nice porch off this level and you could walk down to a fire pit and dock. We were only there 4 days and with the rain and the graduation we were unable to enjoy these areas. Over all I give this property a 10 and I give Ken the owner a 10 - we had a few small problems and questions and Ken fixed and answered everything promptly. We would definitely return to this house. ThanksKen !!!
We had a great time this past weekend at the lake. The house was great and the location was perfect!! Great for large groups with kids. The pool table and air hockey table kept everyone busy!! Hope to be back sooner rather than later.
