“All you need for a Great Lake vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

I had never stayed at this hotel when it was Camper's Paradise, but the rest of my family had many, many times over the years. They were very happy to see the rooms and grounds spruced up. The bathrooms were very clean, you could tell the bathrooms were not really remodeled, just spruced up. Since they were clean, that did not bother us, they are all you need to enjoy the lake.

One of the rooms we rented was the end unit upstairs with the deck. It was nice, but I do not know if it is worth spending very much extra. I think it would depend on how much time you were going to spend at the room. It is nice to have the kitchenette in the upstairs rooms, helps to save on eating out while you are enjoying the lake.

One note, as with any other hotel check and make sure you are charged the rate you were told on the phone. When we got home I realized the special rate they had offered us was not what they charged us. When I called and talked to the manager she was very apologetic and we had a refund check within days, I could not ask for more.

The manager did let us look at the suite since it was unoccupied at the time. If someone wanted to share living space but have separate bedrooms it would be very nice to rent it.

We stayed here in the spring of '12 and decided to stay again. The motel is just as good, clean, friendly and affordable as ever... but this time we rented a boat for two days and went all around the lake. Smith Mountain Lake is magnificent! It has got to be one of the most pristine lakes on the planet. We also ate at Jake's Place twice for dinner. It's right on the water and we sat outside for 3 hours and didn't want to leave. WOW! What a place... Great food, lodging and lake... with the friendliest folks you'd ever want to meet... all in one location! We booked a reservation for July 4th 2014 and we got 3 rooms for the kids and grand-kids. What a jewel of a resort.... and sooooooo reasonable! Cheers...

Room Tip: Get a room on the upper level with a full kitchen!

I can't say enough about hoe great our stay was. I was looking for a place that had a variety of needs to be filled. Senior friendly and that was youthful! Pet-friendly, with clean rooms! Lake access with a boat slip! And, kitchenette! Halesford Harbour Inn was that and more!

Micheal was wonderful on the phone & helped us feel no stress, as the beginning of our trip was a " Murphy's Law" morning! We arrived later than expected & Jennifer greeted us, gave us our, room info & the 411 on where to find what! She was great!

The rooms were clean, quiet, comfortable, the shower was ample with good water pressure. The Inn more than suited our needs, especially, after a long day on the water. Lake access was good, boat launch close, we put out boat trailer in a lot close to our room.

We will definitely be back! And, soon! We are looking forward to bringing more of our family and telling our friends about our "get-a-way"! Thank you Jennifer & Micheal for your genuine hospitality!! Missy thanks for helping us checking out!!

Since they are a smaller establishment, if you don't get an answer when making a reservation...leave a message! Someone WILL call you back!

Room Tip: Our next stay with family may be in the suite or in room #1 (it has a small deck), however, our room...

We came to Smith Mountain Lake last year and were having too much fun to go home. Our condo rental was over, but we found Halesford Harbour on the internet so we could extend our vacation. The room was comfortable and made our last few days at Smith Mountain Lake even more fun. The place is very quaint and the updates are very nice. Loved the marina and staff.

Our family stayed here over the weekend. The rooms were clean, the staff was very friendly, the view if the lake is also good, and they are pet friendley! Great for fishermen and their families. We hope to get to go back to SML, and if we do I definitely want to stay here again.

My family stayed here for 2 weeks in April during a Fishing Tournament for my husband. Upon arrival one of the very helpful & friendly grounds keeper immediately showed us where to check in & took my husband for a tour of the park in his golf cart. Check in was fast & easy. The officer manager was very friendly & easy going. The housekeeper was very pleasant & works around your schedule. Our room was spotless, spacious & had a beautiful view of smith mountian lake. It was equipt with a full kitchen that was very convient. There's a boat ramp right on site so my husband was very happy! Jakes resturant is also on site with great food & prices! The sandy beaches & playground kept my 2 year old entertained. Over all we had a great stay at a reasonable price & we will return back.

We stayed at Halesford Harbour for a week in October 2012 while looking at real estate around SML. What a pretty location and convenient to our search. While not a luxury accommodation, it was very neat , clean and very well kept up. The staff was great and we enjoyed our stay there. There are boat rentals nearby and a restaurant that was open only on the weekend but it must be fabulous in the summertime, as it has a patio right out over the cove. For the money, we couldn’t have expected any better. We would have rated it 5* for us, but some people expect more in the way of luxury. It was the type of accomodation we look for, with the added benifit of being right on the water.

Room Tip: We did not select the room, but ours opened up on the lower level facing the lake. Every morning it...
