We had a great time! This is the best kept secret in Virginia. We shared a weekend with old friends we had grown up with in Lynchburg and we all had a wonderful time. Thanks so much for inviting us to enjoy your so very comfortable house!

This is our 3rd visit to the lake. Our first visit all 8 of us enjoyed our time on a houseboat. This is our 2nd house rental. The house was just right for us, & we enjoyed the dock & screened porch. 2 of our kids slept on the porch! Perfect weather. Thank you! We also enjoyed your beautiful landscaping & watching the birds!

We had such a fun week at the lake! We love your home and especially enjoyed the porch. It was beautiful weather not very humid, so we had the porch as a nice area to visit and watch the lake and mountains. We had our two precious grandsons along this year, ages 21 months and 16 months, along with their parents. The little boys just loved the porch. They would run a circle through the porch and then through the living room and then out to the porch again - such fun! The adults enjoyed swimming, water skiing, and riding around the lake on our 19 ft boat, and just being together visiting. We think this year was our 7th trip to SML, but the 1st time in the Petty House. The view of the lake as the sun comes up is awesome. Every time we are here I am just amazed at Gods beautiful creation! We will definitely want to rent your house again - thanks for loaning it to us.

We had an absolutely amazing week! We caught a bunch of fish and were even able to eat some! It was an incredibly relaxing week and we had so much fun. The view of the lake from the porch is gorgeous and breath-taking. It was so peaceful and the house is so charming, we really felt like we were at home! We loved all the decorations and admireed the houses charm and coziness. Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful and cozy home! Thank you for the many wonderful memories and a great week!

We have been coming to SML for the past 10 years. Usually stay at a cabin at the state park. Since we had family coming for a few days, we decided to rent a house. I must say the Petty House was an exceptionally good choice! This certainly is a peaceful and lovely location - a small piece of heaven. The yard beautiful and inviting. Much time was spent on the screened porch reading and eating - a very relaxing spot. The dock, of course, also enjoyed. The grandchildren, ages 6 and 4, caught their first fish ever there! Thank you so much for sharing your home.

"Thank you for providing our family with this lovely retreat! Your home was comfortable and well equipped. We felt like we were visiting family. Great views, excellent swimming and general all-around R & R. Like others have commented before us "we shall return!"

"Mr. Petty, Thanks for making your home available for a wonderful relaxing week. It is certainly a "home" and we found it very comfortable. Being an artist, I particularly enjoyed the views. It was a wonderful one week escape from reality!"

countinued from Williams Guest Review ".....radiated the sky, gusts of wind gave voice to the chimes on the porch, and torrents of rain created a curtain of shimmering beauty. Our time here has been filled with anticipation of welcoming our children, their spouses and our grandchildren with the enjoyment of their visit and with sadness at saying good bye until another time when we will be together again. Thank you for sharing your home with us!!"

"As thick grey fog spiraled up Smith Mountain, the lake mirrored the suns rising. It was yet another beautiful spring day at Smith Mountain Lake. My family and I have thoroughly enjoyed our visit in your charming home. We rested well, played hard at fishing and other water sports, enjoyed using the VCR for our favorite movies, and relaxed on one of the four solitary locations for a short nap or to read a good book. The kitchen, which was kept busy with the culinary talents of many cooks, was very well equipped with lots of casserole dishes, mixing bowls and loads of great utensils! We feasted on crepes with a creamed spinach sauce, fresh raspberries, blueberries in a sour cream sauce, fajitas, fried fish, fresh vegetables, homemade breads, salads, desserts - key lime pies, brownies with vanilla ice cream and thick fudge sauce. The list goes on. The boat dock afforded us time to feed the ducks and geese and the sunfish who really liked bits of bread! Fingers of lightening.....
