Terrific part of the lake. Very close to a marina. Short kayak trip to a small island for the kids

  • 4 of 5

Excellent experience. wonderful location and terrific proximity to a marina. The only complaint (if you could even consider this a complaint) is that the grill has a rusty grate. I suggest the owner replaces it. But when the only area for improvement is with the grill-that reaffirms how wonderful the place is.

Perfect View

  • 5 of 5

Viewtiful has the perfect view of Smith Mountain! We were looking for a place to meet up with our daughter and son-in-law; they are in North Carolina and we are in Pennsylvania. This was the perfect spot. We had a wonderful time floating off of the dock, taking a few sunset cruises on the boat we rented, playing pinochle and enjoying the view from the upper deck. Moneta, about 25 minutes by car offers nice restaurant choices from sushi to BBQ (which came in handy when I didn't feel like cooking). We would definitely like to return to this haven in Virginia.

Superb location and house. Lake view was amazing! Management was very responsive and helpful.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as expected and in most cases even better than expected. The house is great, Mike -- the manager -- was very quick to respond and help out as needed, and the location was fantastic. We had never been to SML before and this was an exceptional experience. I'd recommend to anyone looking to rent at the lake.

Nothing to do with the location, house, or service -- but if you go at Thanksgiving as we did, most of the boat rentals are closed -- the main ones at Bridgewater are open but somewhat of a hike by lake.

Viewtiful lived up to its name!

  • 5 of 5

Online pictures can be deceiving but with this lovely home, they cannot do it justice. The view from every window/door is breathtaking as much as the interior is welcoming. The deck furniture on both levels are high quality and very comfortable. It was cold enough to enjoy the fire place, and there was an ample supply of dry, seasoned wood. Be prepared to ascend a lot of stairs to enjoy the multi-level dock, that is a photographer's dream for evening sunsets and early morning sun rises. The view of the mountains changed by the minute as fog enveloped the peaks.

The kitchen is roomy and well laid out. We did not lack for any culinary equipment, and were surprised to find a cozy tea set to help take the chill away from our outdoor star gazing.

The bedrooms are comfortable and with four bathrooms, we had great privacy.

We have not stopped talking with our friends and family about the gorgeous setting that made you feel secluded yet afforded you a wonderful neighborhood to walk in.

This is our first stay outside of a hotel. It will not be our last!

Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

Perfect rental for two families to share. We had a great time at the house despite all the rain! We caught lots of perch off the dock. Loved the kitchen and the master bath! The views are amazing. We would recommend getting a more comfortable couch in the family room -the furniture really isn't comfortable especially for taller people.
