I'm a retired art teacher after 30 some years of teaching. I love the lake and it provides some solace for nurturing my creative spirit as an artist as well as an art-educator. My mediums are painting and photography. I grew up in this area and received my education through to a masters in this region. I have a West Highland Terrier named Auggie and he is a great kayaking partner. We love the lake!!!!!
Beverly Miller purchased this apartment in 2009
Perfect for Me!!!!!!
It was lovely. Short walk to semi-private dock. Went kayaking. There were deer every day.
The apartment was just perfect for us and supplied all of our needs. We loved watching the deer play in the yard. We kayaked for the first time and loved it, so it was great spending time on the lake in those.
Our only complaint would be that the grass was too high and we weren't able to play Frisbee in the evenings.
Would highly recommend this apartment to anyone.
We enjoyed our stay here~ it was clean and quiet. There were lots of deer and critters around. The only drawback was that although the property is waterfront, you can't see the water from the house, and the bed linens were pretty worn out. We would stay here again. We came for the Songwriter's festival which is an annual event and tons of fun!
This was a perfect lake setting. Comfortable place with all the comforts of home. Enjoyed grilling out on the patio with convenient setting in doors. The lake was close enough to carry our kayak back and forth with dock fishing when we weren't rowing. I look forward to venturing here again.
A very cute and cozy house tucked back in the trees. We enjoyed watching the deer and ducks from the patio in the large back yard. We also enjoyed the dock, Lake and kayaks!
Beverly was an excellent host! Very kind and accommodating. The apt had everything we needed. Although there is no stove, we cooked breakfast and dinner on both the gas and propane grills. Very convenient. The property was great! We saw deer, ducks, birds of all sorts and a fox! We also loved being able to walk down to the lake to use the kayaks! Thanks again!
There are many amenities at SML state park. Also in the area, Booker T Washington State park. The D-Day Memorial in Bedford, VA. There are several sports competitions sponsored by the lake
- ESPN fishing tournaments, triathlons, wine festivals, etc. There is also a new brewery in the area at Westlake called Sunken City about 15-20 minutes from the apartment. There are several wineries as well.

It is absolutely gorgeous at Smith Mountain Lake and if you enjoy and appreciate the outdoors, this is the place for you!! Take part in all that nature has to offer: hiking, boating, kayaking, walking, bicycling, swimming, fishing, shopping in Roanoke or Lynchburg, or just laying back and reading a good book.
