Gorgeous Home With Great Lake Views
My Family stayed in this beautiful home this week and I have to say I would recommend it to anyone looking to get away and relax. It has everything you need a very spacious home with Great Lake views right on the lake. Excellent setting with plenty to do inside and outside home close to everything at Smith Mountain Lake would love to stay again my family had a great time thanks Laura for everything your beautiful home provided.

Beautiful view, spacious home
We enjoyed our stay very much. The bath towels were nice and fluffy, kitchen well stocked, a plus that firewood was supplied for the fire pit. Pool table provided entertainment. Kitchen well stocked with pots, pans and dishes etc. and 2 coffee makers (keurig, and a drip) 2 grills (one charcoal, one gas) are on the deck as well as plenty of chairs and 2 tables. Only negative is the 98 stairs down to the water - but it is worth it. The docks have plenty of chairs, two ladders to climb back up on and room for a boat. We saw fish in the water and heron landed on the dock regularly.

SML Labor Day
Lovely 5 BR home with plenty of amenities and charm. Great views of the lake. Nice dock. Convenient location. It does have just shy of 100 steps down to the water, so you will get a workout!

What a view!
We had an awesome time here. We enjoyed our family time. We grilled outside, had Smores by the fire pit and played board games. The house is spacious and clean. Going out for a meal was easy since town was about 15-20 min away from the house. We could fish and kayak. The kids enjoyed being able to have access to the Wi Fi and watching movies! We had a blast and Can't wait to come back!

Converted Me to a Lake Person
What a wonderful place. Out of everything I enjoyed at the lovely home, the Unwind gave me a feeling of peace. Admittedly, I have never been a "lake" person, but consider myself converted. I loved being able to relax and do nothing, or participate in a game of pool, or watch for wildlife, which I saw two herons the first time I looked out the window! The house itself I really enjoyed, in every room there is plenty of space, and the view is spectacular. I will be going back!!

Amazing Girl's Weekend Getaway!
I came to Unwind & Reel 'em Inn for a girl's weekend with some of my closest friends. What an amazing and memorable time! There were breathtaking lake views from almost every room in the house. We grilled out (kitchen was well stocked), played games, and the pool table provided hours of side splitting laughter - we all need lots of practice :-) The neighborhood was so quiet and peaceful. We were only about 10-15 minutes away from Bridgewater Plaza which had lots of restaurants. They have rentals there too, but it was a little too early for us to brave the lake on a paddle board. But that's something we definitely want to do on our next trip here. If you like to fish, the dock is awesome and it appears to be a favorite fishing hole - there were several boats with people fishing nearby each day. And at night, small lights came on all around the deck so we could keep enjoying the outdoors even after dark. The owner was great to work with. I've been telling everyone I know about this place. If you're looking for a home away from home, definitely check out Unwind & Reel 'em Inn...you won't be disappointed!
