Recent Smith Mountain Lake vacation rental reviews

Our family (6) spent Thanksgiving at SML. The house was nice and the views were beautiful! Deer were constantly roaming the yard. The large deck and dock had great seating. Wish we had better temps to enjoy sitting outside more but plenty of windows to enjoy the views indoors too. We spent a lot of time watching football in the living room. Despite being a home for 6, this room didn’t fit us well. Even with squeezing in another chair, we were tight. But if you are visiting in the summer your time will be spent outside! The home had plenty of bedrooms for our family, but kids said the downstairs beds were uncomfortable. The one thing that would keep me from renting this home again is the property management company. Upon arrival the house was cold and we had trouble finding the thermostat. It took two hours and repeated follow-up to get someone to tell us that the thermostat is locked and guests can’t change it. When I said it was too cold and that’s not acceptable, they asked what the temperature was set at. Seriously?!? Eventually I received a call from the local team who quickly explained where it was hiding. It all worked out but was a very frustrating start to our trip. Also, they only provided 2 dishwasher detergent packets for a four night stay. We’ve rented many homes and never had to purchase dishwasher detergent. Please provide enough for your guest’s visit. I know this was a long, but I rely heavily on reviews when booking and this is all information I would want to know.

The house was very cozy and well stocked. Liked being close to the State Park.

House and location is lovely. We did not have any problems and were able to use all listed appliances, the hot tub, and the fireplace. The view is stunning and can be enjoyed from inside or either outdoor deck, but the hill down to the lake may be a little steep for people with mobility concerns or small children. We would definitely return to this home!
