“What a wonderful vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Thank you for a wonderful vacation! We made our first trip to Smith Mountain Lake July 14-18, 2012 and stayed at the Halesford Harbour Inn. What an absolutely awesome place and location! The rooms were very spacious, nicely decorated, clean, loved the full kitchen – it had everything you need, and what a beautiful view overlooking the lake. Everything was so convenient. We rented a pontoon boat two days and just walked down to the Halesford Harbour Boat Rentals right in the harbor. Steve and Tom are great! They will set you up. You can watch the safety video right at the office and they gave us a great map with all the markers to get around the lake. The first day we only were renting for half a day. We were having so much fun we called and asked if we could keep the boat out all day. No problem. The boat was so comfortable, worked perfectly, and we had a blast going all over the lake. Then you have a wonderful restaurant also in the harbor – Jake’s Place. We just walked right from the Inn down the hill and to the restaurant. Lots of seating outside and inside overlooking the lake. The restaurant has very good food and a wonderful staff. This is a great setup. We cannot wait to come back. We would highly recommend the Halesford Harbour Inn to anyone! Thanks again for making our vacation so perfect. Great job, great staff, great location.

Room Tip: All the rooms overlook the lake! You can't go wrong with any room you pick.

We have been going to SML for years. Decided to stay at the new inn with family. Great experience!! Rooms are clean and modern. The staff was very inviting and helpful. Even down to getting us a knife to cut snacks up. Boat slips are great. Right outside the door. Cove os quiet and peaceful but just a short ride out to the bridge. We are very pleased and WILL be goin back!! Thanks for a great weekend

I was in the Smith Mountain Lake area in late Nov. '11 and just stumbled upon Halesford Harbour. I caught an off season rate for my 10 day stay that made my trip on time and under budget. It's a new place and everyone was busy as a beaver getting the place shaped up for the upcoming season. Only the motel was opened at the time so I couldn't take advantage of all the amenities. Looking forward to bring the family back this summer in my RV for long visit. The million dollar view makes the place! Looks like they hit a home run on this one...

Room Tip: Stay downstairs in the back... the view is spectacular and it's sooooooo quiet! I think all the...

We stayed at the motel on Smith Mountain Lake for a get away weekend. Jakes Place is really one of the best restaurants on the lake. The menu is really top notch. The RV park is supposed to be ready by June 1st and looks promising. They have boat slips, boat rentals, and a 24 hour gas dock which is something I have never seen at the lake. I would highly recommend Halesford Harbour to anyone looking for spot right next to the bridge with plenty of shopping and fun for the whole family.
