Abundant Peace; Lakefront House with Dock, Canoe, Kayaks and Internet

Moneta, Virginia


Located on the end of a quiet cove with little boat traffic, the home has a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and dining area which seats six and a cozy living room with a TV and DVD/Blu-ray player. A sun room extends off the living room. A deck overlooks the woods and dock. A full bath and a large master bedroom with a king size bed complete the upper level.

Downstairs is another full bath, a second bedroom with a queen size bed and a third bedroom with a twin over double bunk bed. The family room on this level has a queen size sleeper and another TV with a DVD/Blu-ray player. Sliding glass doors open to the covered patio. A washer and dryer are located on this level.

Residential Internet is now available in our area so we've added Internet and WiFi at our house for our guests.

The dock has room for your boat and PWC and there is a large party deck above the dock. You can take the stairs to the dock or walk down the gravel path. We've kept the rental price lower than most because there are a lot of stairs to get to the dock and portions of the gravel path are steep.

A community area with a tennis court, 2 pickleball courts, a basketball area and a large open field with a volleyball court is across the street.

Crystal Shores Marina (formerly the Smith Mountain Yacht Club), a state boat ramp, several marinas and the state park are close by.


Location, Location, Location!: The house is conveniently located across from the R-27A marker which is between Halesford Bridge and the SML State Park. The Halesford Bridge area and Bridgewater Plaza are about 5 minutes by boat and 10 minutes by car. Here you will find several restaurants, shops, game arcade, miniature golf, and an ice cream parlor. There are also several marinas in this area that have fuel and rent boats and jet skis. The State Park is about 10 minutes by boat and 15 minutes by car. It features a boat dock, sandy beach, concession stand, nature tours and plenty of open area. The Westlake area is about 15 minutes by car and is inaccessible by boat. It has a Kroger grocery store, CVS pharmacy, several specialty shops, more restaurants and a movie theater. A new Food Lion grocery store is only 5 minutes from the house.

More Features: The house is located on the end of a quiet cove with few waves and very little boat traffic. My kids love to swim and fish off the dock and there is a canoe and two sit-on-top kayaks available on the dock so you can float around the cove or paddle around the lake. There is a 10' X 20' floater for docking your boat or jet skis. Directly across the street from the house is a large open community area that is great for soccer, football, kickball or Frisbee and can be used for overflow car or boat trailer parking. A fenced multipurpose court is also located here and my sons and I play tennis and throw the lacrosse ball here.

    The house was just as advertised and was a great spot for our family getaway. The owner was extremely accommodating.

    Home was well equipped with everything we need, and had a King Bed, Queen Bed, an older fouton, and a pyramid bunk. There were plenty of seats for all. The location was perfect, on a somewhat private cove off the lake and very quiet. The dock had a nice sun deck on top, and a place for a boat, should you bring one to the lake. We enjoyed a nice afternoon out on the canoe! Overall a very relaxing stay in a quite, and beautiful part of the lake!

    Perfect for us

    The house was clean but needs lots of TLC. Still waiting for the return of my deposit. There were a lot of scattered thunderstorms and 147 steps to the lake. The lake was beautiful.

    Fantastic vacation

Smith Mountain Lake is a beautiful place and the people are very nice. Chris the owner of the house was very nice and easy to work with. We would highly recommend this house to stay. We would like to thank Chris for all his help and information that he gave us. Sue & Darryl

    We loved the house and our stay. The water level was really low so it made docking a little more difficult and the doc was really slick after the rain.

    Great place for a long weekend!

    We spent 4th of July weekend in this home and had a ball. The house is comfortable and spacious, with room for everyone. The kitchen is a great size for cooking dinner and we loved having access to the grill. With the house being right on the water, there is no reason to get in the car. The dock sits on a quiet cove, which offered privacy and peace on such a busy weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to return!

    Great place on the lake, close to it all

    We had a great time at Abundant Peace. On arrival, it was very clean and nicely decorated, and everyone was very happy with their room and their bed. The dock is on a cove off an arm of the lake. Once you get out of that arm, you are maybe a half mile from Bridgewater marina, which is one of the places my kids like on the lake, so it's quite close. By car, most stuff in Moneta is about 10min away, so that was good too. We had a great time canoeing with the provided canoe and then toward the middle of the week, we got a jetski on craigslist from someone else on the lake and after that, it was all a blur, but the dock at Abundant Peace was great to tie up to. We grilled on the backyard bbq, and when cooking inside, we found the house very well stocked with cooking utensils and spices. When it was time to go, we cleaned up, and were happily surprised to see that Chris sent back our damage deposit the very next day, which is exemplary for homeaway. So, in summary, it was nicely furnished, spacious, close to the fun stuff on the lake, and the owner was honest and easy to work with.

    This was our 5th year at the lake. My 12 year old scouted this out and we called the owner. We were able to get it at the last minute without a problem through the property manager. The house was in a great location within minutes of the all the shops and major roads. We have been to several locations on the lake trying them all. My only complaint was the level of the water during the afternoon, the water was to low to get a pontoon into the boat slip and we dinged up a prop which we had to pay for. Also the amount of steps getting to the dock from the house. At the end of the day that was the last thing one wanted to do was hike the 100+ steps. The lake did not seem to be as busy this year, I’m sure do to the cost of fuel @ 4.29 + per gallon and the economy people steered clear of unnecessary expenses.

    Awesome Smith Mountain Lake rental home

    We had a wonderful stay at this lovely rental home on Smith Mountain Lake. You can read all the property details from other reviews and the VRBO listing, so I just want to add a few comments. I have rented many vacation homes, in many different states, and traveled all over the world. My experience with the owner, Chris, was second to none. You will not find a nicer guy to deal with. We had a wonderful stay and my son's wedding could not have been nicer.

    This is a lovely property on a wooded lot. It is kept beautiful inside and out. We brought our bass boat with us and they have a large dock that we tied up too and fished from. The neighborhood has a launch area but we found the one down the street larger and easier for us to maneuver. The owner was very helpful with getting us all of the info we needed prior to the trip and we liked it so much we have decided to return for Labor as well. The house has a lot of steps to get to dock but they also have a gravely road build incase that is easier for people to walk on. We didn't mind the steps at all though personally. Can't wait to return!

    The house was nice, if it allowed pets I probably would stay once a month. I did have to spray febreze to freshen the place up but other than that everything was good. We did appreciate the board games. The only other thing is the 100+ stairs. Because of the stairs I wouldn't suggest bring anyone elderly or injured to the house. My friend 4 year old had no problem with the stairs. I also suggest if your getting a boat, take the supplies with you when you pick up the boat so you don't have to take them down the stairs.
