About the property

4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, private cove, near everything!

Our home is situated right on the water in the Lakeland Pines area of Moneta, VA. The home has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8 people. Lakeland Pines is the "best of both worlds." Our location and cove are very private, but within minutes of nearby shopping, dining, and recreation. The home is cozy and comfortable, but completely updated with all of the modern amenities! The dock has plenty of space for a boat/jet ski rental as well as a swimming platform that kids will love. We have two kayaks and a paddle boat for your use as well as fishing poles and inflatables. We also provide a welcome basket and surprises for the kids upon arrival. Fresh bed linens and towels are included as well as beach towels.

About Craig and T.J. Ryan

We are Craig and T.J. Ryan. We purchased this home in January, 2015. We have done extensive repair and renovation to the home as we enjoy the home for much of the year. We take a VERY hands-on approach to managing the property. We would never leave a management company in charge of our home. We maintain the property ourselves which includes all renovations, exterior maintenance, and cleaning. It is important to us for our guests to know that WE prepare the house for them before each stay. We take great pride in our home and it is our goal to provide our guests with the most comfortable stay possible.

Why Craig and T.J. Ryan chose Moneta

We love this property for two reasons:

1. The quiet cove

2. The close proximity to EVERYTHING by boat or car.

These 2 things are almost impossible to find on the lake. We are close to everything by boat and car, but the cove is so quiet that the kids can jump off the dock, swim, kayak, and paddle-boat without fear of boat traffic. It really is the best of both worlds!

What makes this house unique

We offer EARLY check-in for no extra charge! You may check in at 2:00PM.

Best Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt we had the best vacation ever. The house was perfect!!! We couldn't think of a thing that it didn't have. The owners did a great job of making sure that the I's were dotted and the T's were crossed. They even left a few thoughtful gifts for the kids. Fishing was great right off the dock. The kayaks were a hit. We were able to rent a pontoon boat from the local marina, and spent the week exploring the lake, and taking the boat to little private beaches. We look forward to returning in the future.

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation to SML was one of the best we've ever had. We were so impressed with this rental and its amenities as well as the hospitality of its owners. When we checked in, we found a basket of goodies from the owners waiting for us as well as a fridge full of drinks. We received both a text and email from the owners making sure we had everything we needed and their phone # so we could contact them. The house itself sits on a private cove with no boat traffic which makes it perfect for families. The view of the lake was amazing from the large windows. Our kids loved jumping off the dock, swimming, kayaking, fishing, floating on the large inflatable and riding in the paddle boat. We have never stayed in a rental that provided so many amenities. The house was beautifully decorated and well equipped. We didn't want to leave! We will definitely be back!

Feels Like a Friend's House

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was more than we had hoped because of how fantastic this home was for our family. We felt like we were staying at a friend's house without the friend being there. Upon arrival we found a basket of treats, wine, necessities in the fridge, plush towels, beach towels, a well decorated and very clean home. The renters were easily accessible making us feel like we could reach out to them with any concerns. The amenities provided including kayaks, floats, the dock house, fishing poles, board games, movie selections, incredibly stocked kitchen were more than we expected. When we weren't on the water, we went to the D Day Memorial, Hickory Hill Winery, Sunken City Brewery, and local golf courses. This house is located within walking distance from two restaurants and near a marina for boat and paddle board rentals. The grocery store is also located nearby. The neighborhood was quiet and the house was located on a private cove. We would recommend this home to our friends and family. We can't wait to return next summer.

Awesome location on SML

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this cozy home in a quiet cove on SML! Great location near the bridge to rent a pontoon boat and easy drive to restaurants and grocery store. Home is modern and beautiful inside!! Very clean with hardwood floors, linens included (less packing for us), pretty updated accommodations, loved the view of the lake from upstairs kitchen and family room, and downstairs provided another family room with large tv for watching sports game, 3 lovely bedrooms and large bathroom. Easy access to deck and backyard from ground level basement. Amazing dock with kayaks and paddle boat. The hospitality gestures waiting to greet us on arrival was a very warm surprise (basket full of snacks and bottle of wines, refrigerator with water and various drinks, and bedrooms with chocolate treats/toys for kids). My family enjoyed their stay tremendously and was sad to leave. Thank you for sharing this lovely lake house!!!
