We didn’t want the week to end!

  • 5 of 5

This home was exactly what we needed. We got married at Mariners Landing on June 27th. Most of our guests stayed at ML and this home was only 15 minutes away. When people came over there was fun for all with the pool table, fuse ball, kayak. Hot tub and lake. There is a new dock so it is not as pictured here. The master bedroom with its own bath and entrance was perfect for newlyweds just wish I had time to use the jacuzzi tub. You definitely want to bring bug spray as we could not undo the lightbulb at the entrance and the bugs were swarming at night right by the door. This home is also 20 mins away from a local vineyard- Hickory Hills which was great. I would definitely love to rent this home again but I think our next trip will be just us!

Loved the property, a haven for well behaved dogs and renters alike!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit and enjoyed every minute. The house had a great master bedroom and the other 3 bedrooms were great too. Kitchen, dining and living were all well planned and furnished. Table seated 10 comfortably. Plenty of indoor games for the kids (pool table, foosball, giant checkers). We hope the main wooden decks can be refurbished as the dock has recently been done, as they are a bit rough but are still good enough. The new dock was the best we have ever seen at SML, and this was our 8th year at the lake! The beach was also great. It has its own private cove for swimming, floating, paddle boarding, etc. We would definitely stay here again, perhaps in 2019.... Bob & Patty & Family

Great location, some nice amenties but house needs some updating.

  • 3 of 5

We had a great week at SML. Heron's Rest has some very nice things about it. The location was great. The outdoor furniture was comfortable. The yard was fenced in(except a small hole in the right corner which our dog found right away!). The mattresses were comfortable and bathrooms fine. The kitchen is new and very well equipped. The dining room table is large and was great for night time card games.

But the upstairs queen bedroom slants and it opens out to a top level deck that is a bit suspect with respect to safety. The deck and deck gutters have moss growing on them. We did not use it.

The furniture in the main living area is not comfortable. The sofa is old and sinks way down plus the leather is ripped on one side. Besides the sofa there are these odd chairs that again are old and need replacing. I would recommend the owners replace the living room furniture. In addition the master bedroom had a musty odor that should be looked into.

All in all it was a great week.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying... and for any comments, the home is one of the first homes built from the Peaks of Otter Stone, so as all and any homes over 50 or 60 years the home adjusts itself . Actually the home is extremely safe and so is the deck outside of the bedroom . Yes the moss build up each year- each year about this time we remove it, mother nature with the trees just does not want to cooperate and keep it they way we maintain it every fall... but then again that is the beauty of the lake, and this spot. Sorry about the hole in the fence- that occurs - our wild animals make some small homes now and then but we do ask you walk the fence and we do provide stones in the yard to move them, place them where ever you need them. Our dog does not dig- but we cannot control other animals. The furniture we will be re-evaluating this year- the couch is only a couple of years old... some sink lower, so we check the warranty on that one ... and the older chairs you refer to are our re-covered antiques / classic chairs... that belong to the family. They do sit alot straighter, but some enjoy that aspect. Thank you again for your comments, and look forward to having you back soon ..

Great location! Rental company should be doing a better job.

  • 3 of 5

The house was the perfect layout for 2 families of four. Kitchen was spacious, deck and dining room large enough for all of us. The issues we had were with the property as a whole versus the house.

1) We arrived to a full trash can (and no recycling) so you can imagine how much trash was piled up at the curb when we left!

2) Upon arrival, we immediately noticed the window in the foosball/laundry room had been smashed, then taped up instead of repaired...we didn't use that room.

3) Dozens of test strips for the hot tub had been thrown on the ground nearby.

4) The most anticipated part of the trip was hanging out on the dock with the party deck. There was a huge rusty nail sticking up on the walkway. The rental company said I should just "keep the children away from it." We tried to plug in a speaker at the dock-no power anywhere down there. This was more apparent when there were no working lights anywhere on the dock. Yes, we tried every switch both at the house and dock. The dock was completely unusable in the evening. To this, the rental company response was "you were told to bring a flashlight as part of the items to pack list."

We definitely enjoyed our time and love Smith Mountain Lake, but will not be renting this house again. We certainly won't be spending this kind of money on such poor service from Premier Vacation Rentals.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you did not enjoy our company. 1)First we have nothing to do with the trash service at Smith Mountain Lake- and no there is no recycling. You must drive to the dump, and put cans and more there. The owner pays for the trash pick up - which is only once a week here so again , nothing any can do for trash . 2) Yes that window just had a tree go thru it - literally - you arrived right behind a tornado had hit- the property was cleaned up as best it could be - the window was on order. The window is now replaced and installed - it was deemed safe for use- if taped , by the contractors. 3) Lights and power at the dock do work- you did not want anyone sent out- so we honored your request at that. 4) One nail on over 1500 sq feet of boards- yes again - when someone tried to come out- you declined them - not us 5) We had no idea on test strips - but will notify the hot-tub company thanks for staying and wish we could control tornadoes, , trash and every wish you have before you arrive, but some things are out of every agencies hands at any place.
