An Amazingly gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you step through the doors the interior of the home is simply elegant. You lack for nothing. I cannot say enough about the basement game room, it is a dream for a kid and the kid at heart. It was unbelievable. Everyone had so much fun playing childhood games like pac man and new ones such as giant jenga. The pools is gorgeous and the dock is large enough to accommodate our three boats. The groundskeeper Daniel was so helpful. I had a question about the gas grill and he was right on the spot. The facilities manager Mary Ann was also available and prompt. She made us feel right at home. Thank you for such a beautiful rental property that suited our every need. The owner Andy, knows what it takes for an enjoyable vacation and how to make you happy! We will definitely be back!

This Home is Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This home truly is a hidden gem! I probably can’t say enough about how wonderful it is. It is in a secluded location, has spacious rooms, and more games that one could ever imagine. We had a fairly large crowd and everyone had a fabulous time in the pool, the hot tub and the game room. On top of that, the view of the lake was simply breathtaking! Our family also thoroughly enjoyed cooking together in the spacious kitchen, watching movies in the living room with many seats and karaoke nights. The castle décor throughout the home was tastefully done and allows for many memorable photo ops. The owner was very responsive throughout the rental, and the caretaker for the home was the absolute best! They made the rental process, and our actual stay very enjoyable. For anyone who wants to live like royalty for a week, this is the place to be! As far as vacation rentals go, this home will be hard to beat!

The Ultimate Fun House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend at the castle (4 adults and 11 children between the ages of 5-15) and had an amazing time. The castle exceeded our expectations and the downstairs game room was awesome. During a rainy weekend, the game room kept everyone (including all adults) entertained for many hours! Mr. Plattus and Mary Ann (property manager) were very accommodating and provided excellent communication leading up to the stay as well as during our stay. We will definitely be back!

Greatest family vacation spot on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

The Castle was everything we could want and more! From the arcade to the pool, everyone had fun all day long. Andy and Mary Ann were quickly responsive and easy to rent from. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone who is looking to have a great time on Smith Mountain Lake.

The home and pool are beautiful. It was both easy to relax or to entertain.

Fabulous Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

WOW, pretty much sums it up! You will not be disappointed if you choose this property. We so enjoyed the pool, the arcade and the well stocked kitchen. I appreciated the attention to detail and the small touches, such as an ample supply of paper towels, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent and especially the soft branded toilet paper lol. Andy, the owner, and Mary Ann, the property manager, were very responsive and accommodating to my inquiries & needs. I do have 2 recommendations and one is simply a personal preference. I would add railing to all the steps leading to the dock, as we had a few falls here. And my personal preference would be for there to be a fire pit nearer the pool area in order to avoid all the steps to the dock in the dark. Thanks for sharing this wonderful home!!!
