My kids and I look forwarding to sharing our lakeside getaway with you! We fell in love with Smith Mountain Lake years ago and have spent many vacations enjoying the beauty and adventures at the lake with my children.

In 2022, I was fortunate to purchase this lakefront home and have been making updates throughout. I wanted to create a comfortable, inviting lakeside retreat with all the comforts of home. I also know how much planning goes into a vacation, so I've designed our amenities and inclusions to help make packing easier. I also have a digital guide book for our guests to help you prepare for your stay, discover all the activities around the lake, share our favorite restaurants and more.

As the owner and property manager, I care about our home and I'm here to help make your visit to Surfside Cottage memorable. We look forward to welcoming you to our happy place!
